Product Description

Product Description

Braun’s best selling epilator range in the UK last year just got better! The new Braun Silk-épil Xpressive Pro 7280 comes with new Close Grip Technology which lifts, loosens and gently removes hairs as short as a grain of sand (0.5mm). The unique SoftLift Tips can remove even the shortest and flattest of hairs, whilst the 40 winglet tweezers remove more hair in a single stroke than any other epilator.

2-in-1 Epilator and Shaver!

Braun Xpressive Pro 7280 Bodysystem Epilator with close grip technology
  • The new Braun Xpressive Pro 7280 Bodysystem Epilator comes with new Close Grip Technology which lifts, loosens and gently removes hairs as short as a grain of sand (0.5 mm).
  • The unique SoftLift Tips can remove even the shortest and flattest-lying hairs at the root.
  • The 40 uniquely positioned winglet tweezers remove more hair in a single stroke--regardless of which direction it lies in--than any other epilator.

Braun Xpressive Pro 7280 Bodysystem Epilator with smart light
  • Braun’s SmartLight Technology reveals even the finest hairs to confirm the closeness of your epilation.
  • The result? Smooth, soft and seriously beautiful skin--for up to four weeks--giving you the confidence that you look and feel your best whenever, wherever you want to.

Braun Xpressive Pro 7280 Bodysystem Epilator with speed control
  • Additionally, the comfort setting switch allows users to control the speed of the epilation to fit to their needs, with both “soft” and “fast” settings.

Braun Xpressive Pro 7280 Bodysystem Epilator with four-way massaging rollers
  • Because the Braun Xpressive Pro 7280 Bodysystem Epilator removes only your hair and not your skin (unlike wax), you’ll keep your tan for longer.
  • Four-way massaging rollers stimulate and relax the skin both before and after hair removal, making the 7280 suitable for legs and underarms.
  • The 7280 includes a trimmer attachment, making it ideal for shaving, trimming and shaping the bikini area.

Braun Xpressive Pro 7280 Bodysystem Epilator with pivoting epilation heads
  • The new pivoting heads--with a variance of ±15º--adapt to the body’s contours, allowing closer contact with the skin and aiding removal of even the shortest hairs.

Braun Xpressive Pro 7280 Bodysystem Epilator
  • For the gentlest possible epilation, Braun recommend preparing the epilation areas with Olay Pre-epilation wipes.

Naturally, the Braun Xpressive Pro 7280 Bodysystem Epilator incorporates all the convenient features you’d expect from a Braun shaver—it is a feminine and ergonomic size, designed to easily fit into the user’s grip for extra control and increased efficiency.

The epilator’s sealed body allows users to wash it under the tap after use, while removable heads allow for ultimate hygiene.

I bought this epilator as an upgrade from my old Braun model, the now deleted 3170 Silk-epil SoftPerfection. I chose the 7280 model on the basis that it was mains and not rechargeable (I have found with previous rechargeable products that the charge dies eventually). It did have a long mains wire which is good, but you do have to remember to buy an adaptor as an extra which is about [...]. I was also not bothered about the more expensive model for wet epilation as I am used to doing it dry.

There are some nice modifications to this if you are thinking of an upgrade. The streamlined design enables better hand grip than the older oval shaped designs. The head does spring and move with the contours of the body and the trimmer attachment is a nice touch. The light is very bright; however I still found missed hairs in natural daylight.

On the flip-side my skin had gotten pinched in between the rollers on the only 2 occasions I used it (which had only happened once on my old epilator in the last 4 years) and the "on button" is a clockwise twist button which is more cumbersome than the flip up and down button on the old model.

In the end I was not convinced of the selling points that this epilator promised. I didn't feel it picked up hairs the size of a grain of sand and still found I had to repeatedly go over areas to try and catch hairs about 2mm long. I also found that hairs re-grew after about 2 weeks which made me suspicious of whether hairs were being actually tweezed or cut. On this basis, I decided to return this model and stick with my old epilator.

Its ok, but was a little disappointed as I don't think that it lives up to its claim that it removes hairs as small as a grain of sand. It would also have been nice for Braun to include the facial attachment that you get with the re-chargeable version, but sadly it is not.

I have used epilators for well over 20 years, so have tried most of the various brands on the market. I was quite optimistic about this one and I would probably say, in fairness, that anyone new to epilating will probably be quite impressed, but alas it didn't do it for me and have gone back to using my old Philips Satinelle. Its a lot of money to fork out to discover that its not any better than what you already have.

Bought one of the latest Braun's from Boots thinking it was dual corded and cordless use but it would only work when unplugged. The box litterature was very vague on that, you have to plug it in to realise this flaw. I returned it and bought this 7280. From past experience, I know that Silk Epil's 40min charge is a total lie and it takes ages to charge. They don't remove all hairs in one go, so you have to work on an area at least twice. Within 6 months, the machine only retains 10min charge. So having an epilator which can work directly from the mains is a must, esp with Braun. The 7280 has no battery and only works from the mains. I also like that it has a flat head. You can work many types of areas with that. Remington epilators have an inward curved head, this ok for the legs but if you are working on the chest (which is flat for men), such epilators become useless.

I bought this Braun 7280 yesterday, absolutely loving it! It does the job pretty well noticeably with short hair. My legs feel smoother even without using the pre-epilation wipes provided. It does need the shaver adapter, and this model is not cordless but it is not a major problem for me. Highly recommend this. 2 thumbs up

This is my second epilator, I had another Silk-epil that worked great, so I thought I should stick to the brand.

I didn't expect the "grain of sand" thing, but still having to go over an area maybe 5 times to get all the hairs is not good. The rollers sometimes grab my skin, too.

It is high quality as a product and looks good as new after more than a year, but it doesn't really deliver for me.

I had a Braun epilator for years but it started to wear out. I did a lot of research and bought this one. I like to epilate Brazillian and most other places, the old one was not so bad. This new one nearly gave me a heart attack...............really very, very painful. I threw it in the bin and bought another brand.......... which I have written an excellent report about on that advert :)

Not as good as the previous model. the shape is bigger and not as easy to hold and the previous model. the switch is difficult as you need both hands to operate. The old model could be operated with one hand.
