Love the LIGHT and attachments!

I really liked all the perks that came with this epilator. This isn't the first time I've used an epilator, but I don't know how I ever used one without a light that showed me what hairs to aim for! Comfortable grip, doesn't hurt, I like the flexibility of being able to use it dry or in the shower - although to be honest, I find it takes longer to use an epilator than to shave, and didn't love trying to balance on one foot in the shower for as long as I needed to (compared to shaving). However, in exchange for taking longer to epilate than shave, I get longer between hair removal sessions, and even as the hair grows back, it is finer and in various stages, so it isn't as noticeable as shave stubble.I decided to do a trial of one leg with this epilator and one leg with my old epilator - I definitely found myself preferring this Braun, since the light let me see more hair, and that left my legs hair free for longer. I also felt like my leg was less rough (prior to moisturizing) than the other leg with the older epilator.The multitude of attachments allow for epilating other areas - ie, bikini line and face. I wasn't brave enough for face, but it worked very well on underarms and bikini line.I live in the south where we swim from approximately April through November (sometimes December) and found using an epilator keeps me shorts and swimsuit ready on the go - this epilator worked far better than any previous, and I would highly recommend it. My old one is ready to get tossed! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Time consuming!

I received the package Aug 11, but I waited this long to do my review coz I really want to know if it does lived up to its promise. I read the box and did some research about it because it was my first time. I wasn't that concern about the pain because I do body wax and brazilian wax. I was curious about the "Dry or Wet" print on the box so I went ahead and used it on my legs... It was surprisingly good! Didn't felt any bumps afterwards. After almost a month my hair's starting to grow out and the problem begins haha the second attempt was while taking a shower and it won't pull out as much hair as it is dry. I guess coz the hair's wet so it's hard and for the second attempt I have a lot of baby hair and it doesn't get the job done so I keep on going back over and over at the same coz I wanted to take out all the hair and my skin was sore and irritated after a while. Plus the process of repeating at the spot is time consuming! I was inside the shower for almost 2 hours. I tried it on my bikini but I couldn't handle the pain it's like pulling your hair one by one kinda like you tweezing your bikini hair... It's a slow process of torture hahaha well, that's how I felt. I am so used to that one time pain of waxing and then proceed to a different spot hahaha for the second attempt I wasn't impressed with the result on my legs so I waited 2 days just to let the sore go away and I did legs and brazilian wax. So yeah... bottom line I am only using the epilator on my underarm.About the unit it is rechargeable and it last forever. I haven't charged it yet since I got it. I only use the original head (appicator) that comes with it on my underarm I haven't used the other applicators since I don't shave or wax or epi on my face.

Braun Silk -epil 7

I think the Braun silk epil 7 is a the greatest product I have used for hair removal. It stung a little for the first few uses, but definitely worth it. It is well worth the price. I would recommend using either in the shower or after nice warm shower. The massaging head helps too!! I've notice hair grows back slower now also. I've recommended this product to all the women I work with!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Where has this been all my life?

I'll start by saying that I live in southern Florida so unfortunately I can't conceal stubble under long pants and long sleeves in the winter...lol. I have NEVER tried an epilator so I was very excited to receive the Braun Silk epil 7 from BzzAgent in exchange for an honest review. I'll admit, I was nervous because I've heard that it is painful. To my surprise, it didn't hurt... at ALL.I purposely didn't shave for a few days so I had some hair growth. I used it in the evening since I wasn't sure if my skin would get red and irritated. It did get slightly red in some areas but that disappeared within an hour.My legs have never been smoother and it lasts SO much longer than regular shaving! I love that you can use it wet or dry. The LED light is a fabulous addition for finding the smallest of hairs. The pretty sparkles on the unit is a cute bonus! There are 6 attachments to experiment with.I love the Braun Silk epil 7 and highly recommend it! Try it and you won't go back to your old razor. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Silk-epil 7-561*Great Cordless Epilator

This is the third epilator that I have ever used and it is by far the best. It fits well in your hand and I love the light. Even in daylight, it helps see the hairs you might have missed. It definitely hurts at first, but by the time you get to the second leg you've gotten used to it.It's better if you go slow, in one direction, which helps from going over the same spot twice. It even works on longer hairs. The head is flexible and that makes it easy going over all kinds of bumps. No more knicks on your ankles. I have thicker, darker hair and it's been two weeks, but I think I can get away with a third. That's been great.The only thing I didn't like was the narrowest head used for the face, which was too small and didn't remove hair well. To remedy that I put on the next size up and that worked. The directions are detailed, but a little hard to get through. Read through twice.I would definitely recommend the Braun-Silk-epilator 7-561 if you are in the market for an epilator.

Great for new Braun users but not so much as an upgrade

I have the older Braun Silk Epil 5 model and was planning to upgrade to a newer one. Thanks to BzzAgent, I got the opportunity to test and review the Braun Silk Epil 7 model.The shape of the epilator looks elegant and is very easy to hold in the hand and use. This is a rechargeable waterproof model that can be used in the shower as well. I prefer the dry epilation and started testing it out after charging it for a few hours. It is faster when compared to the older 5 model and the flexible roller head makes it go smoothly over the skin. However, one has to be careful when going over the skin in the joints (such as elbow, fingers) as the skin can easily get pinched in these areas. Comparing to the older model, the epilation head is about the same size. And this cannot be used while it is charging. A full charge comes for about 40 mins of use, which would not be sufficient if you plan to epilate arms and legs at one stretch. Overall, this is great for someone trying Braun for the first time. But it does not offer much improvement as an upgrade from the older version. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun Silk épil 7

This epilator is not everything I expected it to be. I've owned a Braun epilator for more than 7 years, I use it several times a month. It seemed like a good time for an upgrade. This new epilator has great features, pivoting head makes it way easier to maneuver vs other epilators. Ergonomic shape that makes it easier to hold. Speed! Which I think is the problem. The slow setting is fast and the fast setting is really fast, less than half the time required using other epilators. However, because my hair -from legs and underarms- is thin, then this epilator didn't pull the hair out, it cut it out. The immediate result was not silky smooth skin like I remember after using an epilator for the first time 7+ years ago. But it was even worse after a week when i confirmed that my hair was growing thicker than ever. So yeah, this epilator is fast, it might be better for thicker hair to be pulled out and get better results.Light - Finally! Do you know, I have been sitting on the floor with a plant light aimed at my legs so I could see if I missed a spot [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

a little confusing for a 1 timer

The product its self was wpnderful! Dont get me wrong. It was pretty to look at, glittery, awesome! , easily operated with one hand and lightweight and portable making any traveling easy. Ive never uaed an epilator before, so i had to idea as to what i was doing or how to do it. I did read the manuel probably 3- 4. And was still not sure if i was putting things together right, to shave the right spot with the right piece...?? It was pretty confusing. It would be easier for a first time user if there was more of a discriptive explination as to what pieces to do, but other than that my experience was awesome and im so glad i was able to try tbis amazing product. Thank you [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Girls best friend

I was so excited to learn that i will be participating in the Braun Silk-epil 7 campaign. Basically, I get to try the product for free in exchange for an honest review. I have been using Braun products for hair removal last 20 years. My first Braun was Silk-epil. I liked it but it was painful. Afterwards I was introduced to the shaver, which was a lot better since it didn't have to be charged. It was convenient and painless. So when the box with Braun Silk-epil 7 finally arrived, at first I was a little overwhelmed with all the different pieces. To make the things worse, I had to charge it for an hour before I got to use it . Having 3 children under 5, this was not the most convenient option.However, if you are willing to give it a try, this is the best epilator I ever owned. The epilator was as painless as it could be. Just make sure your hair is short.Cons:Many pieces (this really isn't a con)Pros:Great epilatorShaverLove the light to make sure I don't miss anything.Highly recommend... I am getting one for my mom as well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Huge improvement from my decade old epilator

I'm not new to epilating. I previously was using my nearly 10 year old Braun epilator that was still holding up just fine. I was curious as to how much epilators have improved since then, but couldn't really justify the price of purchasing a new one when my old one was still working. So I was super excited to receive this for free, and I have to say after using it I like it so much better and it would've been worth the investment.My favorite feature is probably the LED light. It makes catching tiny hairs much easier. However, sometimes when I hold it I inadvertently block the light with my hand. I also love that it's cordless. I don't have to stress if it accidentally gets wet or if I get tangled up in the cord.With my old epilator, I was only using it on my lower legs and my underarms. It was too irritating on my upper legs so I would just shave there instead. I could also only use it once or twice a week on my underarms, but no more than that because it was prone to irritation and ingrown hairs.The new Braun Silk-epil 7 came with lots more attachments. This epilator came with an attachment specifically for underarms, and I like it a lot. I can use it for touch-ups every day or two with minimal irritations. Using the efficiency attachments on my legs makes them feel smoother, so I think it grabs more hair. I've even used it on my upper legs without any irritation. I've braved using it on my upper lips with the facial cap. It hurt a lot the first time, but there was almost no irritation afterwards. The only thing I haven't been able to brave is my bikini line. Maybe someday! I just stick to using the shaver head there. However, a word of warning, when I left the head unlocked so it could move/tilt I suffered some pretty painful razor burn. So now I stick with it in the locked position and haven't had any problems since. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
