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 Dual Epilator in the shower and bath?
Braun Silk-épil 7 Dual Epilator is 100 per cent 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.
I have never epilated before--how should I go about it?
Braun’s Silk-épil epilators are the perfect choice for first-time users. Epilating on wet skin with the Silk-épil 7 Dual Epilator 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.
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 regrowth.
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 Dual Epilator is even gentler and perfect for use in the shower or bath.
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 am SO glad that I did.
I decided to try it without the integrated Gillette Venue blade as it's been so many years since I used a razor I was worried I'd cut myself. I just used the epilation cap and it was fantastic. I was ready for it to hurt but apart from brief pin-prick sensations on my legs that was all I could feel (maybe after years of waxing my skin is used to it). I then tried the underarms which was a bit harder to do, and more painful than the legs but still very bearable. It is important to make sure that the skin is stretched taut, but the pivoting head makes it easier to negotiate the contours of legs/underarms. It's worth using it in the bath or shower as the hairs seem easier to remove when the skin has been softened in warm water first.
All in all, a fantastic product and I am going to put the money I will save on waxing towards something nice!
I am very dark haired and I deliberately didn't shave my legs for a fortnight before I used this so I went from ape to supersmooth in around twenty minutes, which made the results even more impressive.
I loved being able to use this in water and found that I could use it easily in my shower. My only wish is that the handle was of a more non-slip material, perhaps a little more rubbery than the plastic case it has.
I never usually write reviews, but I wanted to leave a comment as I am so impressed. Plus I found reviews essential when choosing an epilator. The cheap epilators are cheap for a reason- they can be agony and won't remove hair effectively. This is a superb investment. (Plus, by shopping around I found mine at a bargain price.)
Unless you are a complete wimp and can't take any pain at all, this is the epilator for you.
I used it for the first time today in the shower with a really good shaving cream (Lab Series, Estee Lauder's men range) and there is no way to describe how happy I am with it, and this was without the "Venus" attachment. The light feature really helps you to see stray hairs so it's a bit of a genius modification by Braun. The rubber encasement helps you to grip without slippage and it feels reassuringly sturdy in your hand. It is a bit loud but when I used it in the shower I don't think anyone heard it over the water(?)
I would agree with some of the reviewers that you should not use on hair that is too long, but then that is the same with waxing, if the hair is too long it is much more painful....I think that the longer the hair remains in situ the stronger the root becomes and the more painful it is too yank out. You do have to take it nice and slow making sure you give the tweezers the chance to grip and pull out the hair, but To label Braun Sil-epil "painfree" is, I'd say, marketing and PR over-reaching but it is not painful if you use it correctly. If you have your legs waxed then this isn't much worse than that, and considering I have a "Hollywood" bikini line, this method of epilation is a walk in the park!
