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.

Top Customer Reviews
There are a variety of attachments provided for different areas of the body although I brought it primarily for my legs and underarms. I noticed that it took two or three separate attempts upon first using it to get a fully smooth feel but I appreciate that this is due to the different levels of hair growth at that time. After a few uses I had smooth legs for weeks and need to use it less often to maintain that feel so stick with it.
I have fairly sensitive skin so will admit that at first I found it irritated the skin on my legs, and the hair removal hurt especially on the underarm area. I find this is no longer an issue and it became increasingly more bearable after the first few uses. Overall I would recommend this product as an effective form of hair removal and it is definitely an investment.
This epilator is amazing! It is quite terrifying when you first turn it on. I felt a little apprehensive as it looked/sounded like a lawnmower. The epilation itself is an odd feeling, not really painful but you can feel the hairs being plucked. I used the fastest setting on my legs. It's really good on the bikini area too but i'd advise you to be careful, especially if you haven't waxed there before - its a very similar pain to waxing there and it isn't the most pleasant sensation but it definitely does the job. I've only used it a couple of times but it seems great, the first time removed most hairs and the second removed the regrowth that wasn't long enough the first time. It's so easy and simple to clean. Both legs were done in less than 10 minutes and no nasty nicks that I'd get if I was rushing with a razor! The smart light is really handy for picking up the odd hair you may have missed and I suppose if you wanted to epilate in the dark you could... My only concern is that after a full charge the red light still started flashing quite soon after I started using it. The battery seems to be lasting fine, so i'm not recharging it until I notice the power drop.
I think i've been converted! I would definitely recommend it.
