This really is an excellent product, but the first time you use it be sure to allow plenty of time, and be prepared for plenty of pain!
Once you've got the initial run over and done with, repeat treatments will of course be pulling far fewer hairs, and I promise will hurt far less too.
I think with hindsight it might have been better to wax first, and then start using this epilator a few days after to catch any missed hairs and then of couse to strip the regrowth. That might have made it much easier.

I've used this in and out of water, and not really noticed much difference to be honest, but the convenience of being able to wash the unit and attachments under water is a definite plus.
If anything, I found it harder to use on wet skin in places (ie under-arms where the skin is not as tight), as it tended to snag the skin more rather than gliding. (I haven't tried using shave/shower gel with it as suggested in the manual, so maybe that would be better.) Fine on wet legs though, but no better/worse than dry to me.

The smartlight is a great addition - even in what I consider reasonably good light, it shows up hairs that I would otherwise have missed.

Overall, I'd highly recommend this, but would suggest lots of short, quick strokes for the first attempt rather than long sweeps, and start with lower legs rather than anywhere more delicate! Keep skin taut while using, move fairly slowly and take your time.

Expect redness too - especially for first use. I looked like I'd been stood knee-deep in red paint for an hour or two after! Having said that, repeat uses have hardly produced any redness at all.
Invest in a good, gentle moisturiser, with as little rubbish in as possible, for using immediately afterwards to soothe (I use Lush's Dream Cream, but a plain unscented cream/lotion with a drop or two of tea tree or lavender oil in would work fine to cool and calm the skin.)

I've been using a Braun epilator for about 12 years, so I am used to the pain. This model had a number of features which made it much much easier to use than the old model. I loved that it is rechargeable, so you can use it easily and quickly anywhere, and the epilating action seems to be more efficient than my old one. Being able to use it in water as well makes it less painful, easier and very convenient - you can quickly "touch up" an area in the shower. I also loved the light - my main problem before was getting enough natural light on my legs to see the hairs, close enough to a power supply - these problems are solved! The massaging head genuinely reduced the pain as well.

All together, a great product and well worth the money when you think about all the areas you can de-hair and what that would cost you in wax.

Verified Purchase
I owned a previous model of a Braun epilator and got rid of it as I remembered it to be so painful and not a pastime I thought I'd ever continue. However....I've really had it with hair removal and I've tried the lot. Tired of the mess, stress and money disappearing down the hair-removal drain, I researched into epilating once more and decided, after reading all the great reviews, to give this model a go (annoying now significantly cheaper on Amazon only days after I bought it.) At nearly £100, this was a lot of money for me but, I concluded, was about the cost of four or five waxing appointments without the hassle of waiting for the hair to grow and walking around looking like The Gruffalo.

So, is it any good and how much does it hurt? I epilated my legs first and did them dry. The smart light was very good at showing up the hairs and the epilator removed them very efficiently. I did have to go over areas a few times in different directions to ensure all hairs were caught but it says you have to do that in the instructions and considering hair grows in different directions I would say it's reasonable to have to do that. As for pain, I didn't think it hurt that much at all. It was more an uncomfortable pulling/twanging sensation than pain. My legs did come up with mild red raised spots, but this went down within a couple of hours. Hair-free legs in 15-20 minutes! Result! One thing I would say is that if you're expecting the smoothness you get with shaving you'll be disappointed. The nature of shaving means every hair is taken off at skin level so you're inevitably silky smooth (if only for a day or so.) Epilating plucks hair from the root and does miss teensy-weensy hairs that you can't necessarily see but you can feel when you run your hands up your legs.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Man, epilating *hurts*. I was an epilating virgin prior to using this, so if this as pain-free as it gets, all earlier models are just medieval torture devices what were invented by mens what hate us.

The actual thingie is satisfyingly heavy and chunky... that's probably not remotely relevant to build quality, but it's reassuring somehow. It's also quite pretty, really. It's white and blue and it has glitter :o) It's a superficial benefit, absolutely, but it's a really nice touch.

(A quick word of warning... avoid looking directly at the part that actually removes hair. It looks a little like a gaping maw full of jagged silver teeth, and it put the frighteners on me.)

The plug is a two-prongy one, so you'll need to buy an adapter. Bit annoying, but I'm sure there's a good reason for it. You'll need to charge it for about an hour before using it and the charge apparently lasts about 40 minutes. I used it while in the bath - if having babies in warm water makes it be less painful, surely the principle here is the same, I thought. Excellent in theory. In practise not so much: it hurt like the dickens. Even with the pre-massage and pre-epilation wipe (they provide 16 of them), it really, really hurt.

It doesn't feel like it's being waxed. I'm a waxer, so I figured this would be a giggle on a Saturday afternoon next to that. Tisn't. While waxing pulls off a layer or two of skin, with epilating, it's like you can feel each hair being pulled out. It's more akin to intensive, persistent plucking on a larger area. Plucking certainly becomes more bearable as you adjust to it, though, and I expect it's the same for epilating.

But.
