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
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.
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).
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.
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 - 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.

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.

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).
The epilation head claims to possess "CloseGrip Technology for extra efficiency especially for short hairs" (I found this to be correct & it did remove short hairs quite well) & that the "40 tweezers always keep close contact to the skin to remove hairs as short as a grain of sand" (I found this sometimes worked, due to the tautness of the skin & the positioning of the hair; for example on my legs where the skin is straight & taut, this worked, but on face, this was more difficult to achieve).
Another plus point for this product is it can be used in the shower (on wet skin), even under running water! You may even use shower gel to make the skin moist & smooth.It can then be washed & cleaned under running water.
One thing I am a bit annoyed with, for cleaning you use the little brush & clean out the hairs from the appliance & then dip the brush in alcohol to disinfect it but I contcted Braun to ask what kind of alcohol I should use & they said they only recommend their own cleaning alcohol (which costs £7 inc. p&p which I wouldn't pay for a bottle of cleaning alcohol).
The product itself is white, has a nice shimmer on the bottom part & is easy to hold & handle.
Overall, an excellent product & I don't regret getting it.
PS. I have noticed my skin is quite sensitive after using it on my arms & legs..the skin goes red & comes out in red bumps, which does go down after quite a while, but not an hour or so, I'd give it a good 4-6 hours. But on my underarms in fine.
I WOULD NOT USE IT ON MY FACE.
For this reason, there's always a continuing growth of stubble so I generally have to epilate twice a week. As far as the in-growing hairs go, when I first started using the Braun, there were only a few growing just below the surface i.e. you could see them clearly, just not get to them. Wanting to persevere with the thing I didn't consider this a problem and just got the tweezers out afterwards to excavate/pluck a few strays out; quite therapeutic actually. However, after 9 months of using it the in-grown hairs on my legs are becoming a REAL GRIPE. They're sore, red, pimply and not pretty in the slightest. Tweezering the strays is no longer relaxing but a complete chore - there's so many of them I don't know where to start. I can honestly say I gave the all-singing all-dancing Braun a chance and have persevered for 9 months. I'm probably well past the money-back guarantee period anyway. The trimmer/razor aspect of it is really handy but I think it's time I went back to my bic. Expensive experiment for me but I'm sure it works for some.
It works like an absolute charm on my underarms. My underarm hair grows very slowly and is very fine since I started using it. I use it every three weeks.
It doesn't work on my leg hair. No matter how short or long my hair is, it will break the hair off and never take it from the route.
This is a little embarrassing, but I have hirsutism from PCOS, so I use it on my knuckles. It makes the hair grow back much faster than plucking, but it does the job quickly.
You can use it in the shower, but it works best when it's dry. And try to only use it when you're straight out of the shower so it stays clean.
It can be a little painful at first but you really do just get used to it.
Also, make sure that you exfoliate when you use this! I use a Japanese washcloth in the shower, but any loofah or scrub will do. And always clean the area you are going to use it on very well.
Oh, and I wouldn't advice using it on the bikini area... the process is far too slow and unnecessarily painful. You're better off just waxing.
Also, don't use it on your face if you're prone to breakouts!
