The product has a pathetic battery life...

i have to charge this product every 30 minutes for 2 hours before I can use it again. Plus this product cannot run after connecting to the power adapter. It is a complete waste of time and money. Spending 12 hours Epilating the entire body in a single day is absolutely crazy.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Absolutely Worth every penny

Don't let the price scare you away from this amazing product, it's an amazing investment. I decided that I was too environmentally conscious to continue putting shaving razors and waxing strips into landfills and the oceans. In the long-run, this saves money, can be done in your own home without assistance-unlike most waxing- and with time, less and less hair grows back since the Silk-Epil 9 pulls out hair at the root. My favorite feature is most definitely the cleansing brush, my skin clearer than ever, zero blacks, white heads and no acne. Also, the discolorarion around my mouth and neck is decreased. I highly recommend using this in the shower as you get used to it, but as the site and manual states, epilation gets much easier with time and since the Silk-Epil 9 pulls hair out at the root, my underarm discoloration has greatly decreased since shaving removes hair only at the surface. This is an excellent purchase for the environmentally conscious woman or any lady who wants to feel like silk and go weeks without hair removal. Thank you Braun.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Love this Epilator!

This is by far the best epilator I have ever owned! It's lightweight and easy to use. The little light shines so brightly on your skin you can see every hair that needs to be removed. I have used it dry and wet in the bath and both times it was very effective. I have very dark coarse hair, the kind that a couple of hours after shaving I have stubble so I have loved having super smooth legs for 3-4 weeks it is unheard of for me!If you have been put off by epilators in the past please give this a try!

Yes, I recommend this product !

Love it and you will too

Never even knew what a epilator was until I received this kit. Where have I been? This is a must have. Can we say smooth results that lasts longer than regular shaving? The face cleansing brush is also awesome. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The Best Braun Epilator Yet!!

The Braun Silk épil 9 package (product number 9-579) comes with an wet and dry epilator with 12 additional items, which are the shaver head and high frequency massage head (already attached to the epilator), an additional shaver head with a trimmer cap, a skin contact cap, a facial cap, a charging stand, a facial cleansing brush, batteries, a charger, an epilator cover and a cleaning brush. The product also includes a manual for easier instruction and maintenance. Upon opening the box, I noticed that there were more accessories included as opposed to previous Braun silk epilators which tend to include up to 3 accessories. The facial cleansing brush was a bonus edition and was probably the best thing out of the whole package. The brush cleans out your pores and exfoliates your skin, leaving it nice and soft. However, I would love for the facial cleansing brush to have been rechargeable instead of battery operated, (like the epilator). As for the epilator, (which came fully charged right out of the box), I really like the design and color, as it is a royal purple and white with sparkles on the body of the epilator. I also like that the epilator comes with a light upon turning on the device making it easier to use. Unfortunately, the epilator only comes with 2 speeds. As someone with sensitive skin, the epilator did hurt leaving my arms red for at least 20 to 30 minutes. (I would recommend putting lotion on afterwards to ease the sensitivity). However, after using the product several times, my skin became use to it and so it wasn’t as painful to use. The good thing about this product is that hair remains gone for up to 2 weeks. What I really liked was that after using the product, it doesn’t just leave your skin smooth, it leaves it feeling velvety and soft, similar to a baby’s skin. On the contrary, some cons of the epilator is that it is a bit hard to turn on the epilator. Instead of pressing a button, you have to rotate the circle. Another problem I encountered was that I had trouble attaching the shaving head and cap to the epilator, even though there were arrows.As for the other items, I haven’t really used them except for the brush which makes it easier to clean the epilator and the facial cap, which makes it easier to remove hair from the philtrum and upper lip areas. Furthermore, I have no idea what the skin contact cap is to be used for, as I found no use for it.Overall, I would definitely recommend this product vs other Braun epilators, because of all the additional accessories, and for the facial cleansing brush, which was the best part of the whole package.

I love this epilator!

This epilator is fantastic! It is such an efficient method of hair removal, lasting for weeks, and even then the hair returns much thinner than before. Even my boyfriend commented on how much softer my legs were when the new hair grew in.The micro tweezers are very thorough, which was quite uncomfortable at first, but quickly I became used to it, and the sensation really didn't bother me by the time I started on my 2nd leg. Likewise, it was much more comfortable with subsequent use. My legs never feel that soft and silky smooth with shaving, and I absolutely love that the epilator gets all the pesky hairs that grow in odd directions, unlike waxing or shaving. Other than a few bumps on my arms with initial use, I have had no lasting irritation from using the Silk-épil 9, which is so much better than razor burn, ashy dry skin, and bikini bumps! I have been raving to all of my friends and family about it, making them jealous that I can go weeks without worrying about hair removal. It is so nice waking up everyday without armpit stubble or bikini line sprouts! I don't even need to worry about packing a razor when I travel, which is another perk. Who needs a razor when you have an epilator this fabulous?!The trimmer is excellent as well. I love that I can use either function in or out of the water, which is very convenient.One thing I feel I should mention about the epilator: be super careful around stretch marks!I have truly fallen in love with the Silk-épil 9 epilator for its quality, functionality (that light is even more useful than I had imagined!), versatility, convenience, and the beautiful, lasting results it leaves me with. It is so simple to use, and as I told my mom, it's my new best friend! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Fantastic!

I've used epilators before and have never considered them worth the discomfort, but the Braun Silk-épil 9 is a game-changer. The wider head makes hair removal a breeze. Because hair grows in phases, I used it once to remove the bulk of the hair, waited a couple of days, and removed the rest. The process likely could have been done in one night if I'd wanted to have stubble the next day, but it was well worth waiting for the silky smooth results.As anyone who's ever used an epilator knows, complete hair removal on the knees is nigh on impossible. This little device whisked them away in the blink of an eye!I'm not going to lie and say it's a completely painless process, but because the Silk-épil 9 works so quickly, the discomfort is over before it can really register as anything more than a mild stinging sensation.Cleaning was also a breeze. My old epilator -- now sitting in the trash can -- was a pain to clean, but the cover on the head snaps off easily, making it simple to sweep the little hairs caught in the tweezers away.I was sent this free of charge, but it's absolutely worth the cost.

Nope, nope, no

I tried this. Then I tried it again. Then I drank some wine & tried again. I give up. Epilation is not for me. Heck. Even the look of the head makes this conjure images of a demon ready to rip & shred apart not just your hair, but the skin as well - right off the bone. I think it has a staring role in a Criminal Minds episodeI read that the sensation is similar to waxing. If your waxing feels like this, find a new place. Please. It shouldn't hurt that much.I did find that the electric razor was ok. In a pinch, it can be great - say you missed a spot shaving, but you are already out living life & don't want to jump back in a shower. But it's not a great shave so make sure at some point, you do shave those spots. Or not. Really, hair preference is up to you. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
