Product Description

Product Description

Silk-épil 7 - Wet and Dry

The Silk-épil 7 epilator removes even the shortest, finest hairs - right down to 0.5mm long. That's as small as a grain of sand. The 40 tweezers in Braun's Close-Grip technology ensure superior performance and thorough hair removal.

As it's cordless, it can also be used dry or in the bath or shower for the gentlest epilation. To further increase comfort in your epilation, prepare your skin with the Olay cooling wet wipes included.

Product Key Features

wet and dry

Wet and Dry
The Silk-épil 7 was designed specifically for epilation in warm water. Warm water is relaxing and soothing. The warmth improves your circulation and increases the comfort of your experience while making your skin less sensitive.

short hairs

Close-Grip Technology
The 40 tweezers have been engineered to close at the optimal angle and grip hair even closer to the skin for better removal of even the shortest hairs (0.5mm).

Additional Features
Insert Alt Text here

1. High frequency massage
The high frequency massage system stimulates the skin and effectively soothes the plucking sensation during epilation to maximise your skin comfort.

2. Pivoting head
The Silk-épil 7 features a flexible head that can pivot by up to 15 degrees forward and back. This means it can better adapt to the contours of the body for more comfort and maximum thoroughness. It also ensures that the optimum usage position is maintained.

3. SoftLift Tips
The SoftLift Tips effectively lift even flat-lying hairs and help guide them to the tweezers for removal.

4. Smartlight
The Smartlight helps easily guide you way through the epilation process and lights up even the finest hairs for no-miss removal.

5. Speed personalisation
You can select the right speed for your individual needs: speed 1 for extra gentle epilation, speed 2 for extra efficient epilation.

Easy and convenient
cordless use

Cordless use - fast recharge
The Silk-épil 7 gives you the freedom to epilate in comfort wherever and whenever desired. With up to 40 minutes running time - easily enough for a full epilation - and a 1 hour charge, it runs for longer and charges faster than many epilators.


Waterproof and washable
All Silk-épil 7 models have a sealed body, which means they can be used and cleaned under running water for better hygiene.


5 attachments included
The Silk-épil 7 7681 comes with 5 attachments including a shaver head, a trimmer cap, an efficiency cap, a sensitive area cap and a facial cap, specifically designed to give you superior results in different areas of the body.

Gentle skin experience

Olay/Olaz cooling wet wipes
Special cooling wet wipes designed by Olay/Olaz relax the skin before epilation and soothe it afterwards, for even better skin comfort.

Features dermatologically recommended
The Silk-épil 7 is recommended* as the gentle solution to long-lasting hair removal thanks to its combination of skin-soothing features.
*Dr. med. Petra Staubach, University Skin Clinic, Mainz

Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of epilating with an in-water epilator?
Warm water relaxes and soothes your skin. The warmth improves your micro-circulation, stimulates the production of pain-reducing substances and makes your skin less sensitive. This is why the tugging sensation is considerably reduced in water. This is confirmed by a study conducted by the German dermatologist Dr. med. Petra Staubach at the University of Mainz. The majority of participants felt no or only a slight tugging sensation.

Is it safe to use the Braun Silk-épil 7 Wet & Dry in the shower and bath?
Braun Silk-épil 7 Wet & Dry is 100% waterproof and is safe for usage in or out of the shower and bath, The product features an automatic shut off mechanism that ensures the appliance only operates once the cord is removed from the mains power and recharger dock. This safety mechanism guarantees that the appliance cannot be taken into the water and operated so there is no safety concern of using an electric appliance in/with water.

Is epilation painful?
Silk-épil epilators have been developed especially to minimise any discomfort and irritation. Cooling wet wipes from Olay prime the skin beforehand and massaging rollers help to relax the skin as you use the epilator. Being able to use the product in water also reduces discomfort and irritation as the warmth of the water releases endorphins - the body's natural pain reliever.

I have never epilated before - how should I go about it?
Braun's Silk-épil epilators are the ideal choice for first-time users. Their active massage rollers softly stimulate your skin with micro-pulsations before and after removing the hair, leaving your skin more relaxed. Epilating on wet skin with the Silk-épil 7 Wet & Dry epilators is especially gentle and perfect for under the shower or in your bath. Still, if you are inexperienced, you may feel a little discomfort during your first epilating sessions. This will decrease with each session, as the skin adjusts to the process. Also, the individual hairs grow back at different speeds depending on their particular growth cycle, so that there will be less hair to remove after the first epilation.

How do I best prepare my skin for epilating?
The best preparation for epilating is a nice, warm shower. It will leave your skin clean and relaxed. Be sure to use a gentle, pH-neutral shower gel, and keep the water warm, not hot, to avoid drying out your delicate skin. Epilation on wet skin with the Silk-épil 7 Wet & Dry is even gentler and ideal for use in the shower or bath.

Does more hair grow back if I epilate?
No, this has been proven in dermatological tests. In fact, studies show that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair growth.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Epilator I ever used 20 Feb 2010
    By White Eagle TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    This epilator is the easiest on I have ever tried.
    It removed the hairs with ease & least discomfort. I didn't feel "much" pain as far as epilators go. By that I mean, I expect some pain as removing hair from the roots by any means is a painful process. It removed the hairs very well, even short hairs.
    One thing I really liked about this is the Smartlight which shines a light on the area you are epilating/shaving & you can see what you are doing (I just wish it was a bit stronger). It claims to create an almost daylight condition (I'd say somewhat).
    As expected, my skin was a bit red & swollen but this soon went (this depends on your skin's sensitivy & areas used but this happened on my underarsm & legs).
    I will use it on other reas & will upate here!
    However, I wouldn't use it on my face as a beautician told me although apilation is ok to use on face, it leaves ingrown hairs which can look stubble, so I wouldn't advise using it on face.

    It has 4 different caps for the main epilator head:
    -bikini & underarm
    -High-Frequesncy Massage System (which massages) & is the least painful one (I'd say can used for large areas)
    -EfficiencyPro cap for fast epilation & maximum contact with the skin.

    It also comes with a main shaving head which is excellent for:
    -trimming long hairs prior to epilation (OptiTrim comb) to ideal length
    -it can also be used as a shaver
    -trimmer (for example for bikini area).

    4.0 out of 5 stars Believe The Hype!! 8 Jun 2010
    Verified Purchase
    Wow!! As soon as this arrived, I got cracking! I started with my legs, and due to the lack of pain (how have they designed something like this, but it doesnt hurt???)I got so carried away, I done every hairy department (yes, including the bikini line...a VERY close one at that!!).
    Seriously, this is actually better than waxing. It's less messy, paid for in one go, and actually gets those 'small as a grain of sand' hairs out that waxing doesn't. I have to admit, I was sceptical, but had to eat my words the day it arrived.

    The negatives are...

    The price
    It's noisy,
    You can's use it whilst it's charging
    You need to purchase a shaver adaptor (a couple of quid)

    Other than that, no complaints.Don't even think about getting one of these, just DO IT.

    3.0 out of 5 stars sensitive areas-battery-plug and other issues 9 Aug 2011
    By V.
    Hi all. I am a wax fan and have been using an epilator to give a smother finish to my waxing. I used an old silkepil epilator for about 15 (!) years which I recently lost. I decided to buy this one (7681) to replace it. I am using it for the last two months. It is a much more effective and significantly less painful epilator than my previous one. I find it brilliant for legs and I actually stopped using wax. I just spend a few minutes weekly to epilate, which I find the less painful and effective way to use it as this keeps legs constantly hairless. Have not noticed any ingrown hair yet, even though I had seen many comments complaining about that. Very nice and smooth result. Still, I tried it on the bikini and strongly recommend to not use it on sensitive areas.Strangely enough, it periodically cuts my skin like a blade there. This wasn't the case with my old epilator. I have not yet used it in the bathroom, so cannot comment on that.
    The light is quite annoying at first but proves to be very useful. I must mention, even though the battery thing can be quite handy, you cannot use it while it is charging. This must be due to safety (!) issues. Even though I am happy with the battery strength, I suspect it will not last more than a couple of years. Also, the plug can be used in rest of Europe with a plain uk-europe adaptor.
    Thus, if for some reason you need to use it unplugged, or in the shower, this will keep you satisfied. If this is not the case, and considering it is quite dangerous to use it for bikini or face, I would go for a plain epilator either silkepil or brown which uses a similar mechanism. It is cheaper and will propably last for years. In either case, I would not go for the newer model with the blades.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Myth Busting For Epilating Virgins 8 Jan 2011
    Fellow Amazonians, I love my gadgets! Kitchen gadgets and beauty gadgets are my downfall... However, I'm not a regular reviewer... I only review those products that I'm passionate about, and ladies and gentleman, this is one of thos products!!!

    I won't bore you too much with product details as they're already available to you, but this is a wet and dry epilator that can be used on your legs, underarms, bikini line, and face.

    I've considered epilation for a while. The idea of hair-free legs, underarms, and bikini line for a lengthy period of time was very inviting! However, I don't like the idea of waxing... I know they see it all the time, but I can't bring myself to have some poor girl playing with my hairy limbs! So, I've never waxed. Not even home-waxing!

    So, this Christmas I was stuck what to ask for, so when I saw this little beauty, in it's curvy, glittery glory, I thought now's the time to invest! The box stated that this can be used under running water and with products such as shaving, foam or shower gel. Perfect!

    I was very excited when I got to use this for the first time. The instructions recommended giving it a full charge before the first use, so in a few hours it was ready. I ran a bath to open my pores, and relaxed. I opted to try shaving gel. The first time I turned it on, I was terrified! I expect it to make a noise akin to an electric razor, but no. If you closed your eyes you could easily confuse it for a sound effect from a horror film. This was the first indication that all wasn't as it seemed with my beautiful friend!

    Then I put it on my leg... I'm not going to lie to you ladies... It hurt! It hurt a great deal!
