The Silk-épil 7 range offers the best short hair removal from Braun
Removing even the shortest, finest hairs, right down to 0.5 mm long (that’s as small as a grain of sand), the 7381 model from the Silk-épil 7 range uses Braun’s close-grip technology with 40 tweezers to ensure superior performance and the most thorough hair removal. And, 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. The wet wipes are specially designed by Olay to relax the skin before epilation and soothe it afterwards, for an even better skin comfort. Plus, the features of the Silk-épil 7 Epilator are dermatologically recommended by Dr. med. Petra Staubach (University Skin Clinic, Mainz) as the gentle solution to long-lasting hair removal thanks to its unique combination of skin-soothing features.
Product features at a glance
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 Epilator 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. And it ensures that optimum usage position is maintained.
3. SoftLift Tips: The SoftLift Tips effectively lift even flat-lying hair and help guide them to the tweezers for removal.
4. Smartlight: The Smartlight helps easily guide your way through the epilation process and lightens up even the finest hairs for no miss removal.
5. Speed personalisation: You can select the right speed for your indivi needs: Speed one for extra gentle epilation, speed two for extra efficient epilation.
Wet & 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.
Braun's technological breakthrough makes epilating more efficient than ever before. 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 (0.5 mm).
Cordless use--fast recharge
The Silk-épil 7 Epilator gives you the freedom to epilate wherever and whenever desired. Get up to 40 minutes of operation after just one hour of charging.
Waterproof and washable
All Silk-épil 7 Epilator models have a sealed body, which means they can be both used and cleaned under running water for better hygiene.
Two attachments included
The Silk-épil 7 7381 also comes with two attachments including an efficiency cap and a sensitive area cap, specifically designed to give you superior results in different areas of the body.
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 Epilator in the shower and bath?
Braun Silk-épil 7 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 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 indivi 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 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.

Now, epiltion might not be for everyone, for some simply shaving may be the best answer.
But if you are like me, someone who has strong dark hair with fast re-growth then eplilation might help.
For example if I were to shave my legs in the morning by the evening I would have stubble. Repeatedly shaving my legs gave me rashes and really itchy skin, I hated it!
I tried waxing, which was not for me, as I didn't like having to wait for weeks for most of the hair to be long enough. Also every time I went to my salon it seemed ever more expensive! Plus I felt embarrassed revealing what I thought was more like the legs of a chimpanzee to this perfect beautician!
In my opinion, what makes this epiltor stand out from the rest (now I have tried a few!) is the fact that it is portable, has a light! (genius) and it works!
The first time you use it, I'm not gonna lie, it HURTS!!! (as with all epilators) but the second time it just tickles! seriously! Remember I have strong dark hair too. So if you are a lucky lady who has lighter blond leg hair, then it probably won't hurt much at all.
As for achieving completely smooth legs ... If you have strong growth then this might be near impossible. Mainly because each hair on your body grows at different rates! It's impossible to expect to epilate every single hair on your legs in one go, making your legs completely silky smooth! But they will be smoother than shaving.
But what I did, was after the first OUCH! time, I kept on epiltating every other day for about about a month. By doing this you will get the slower growing hair.Read more ›
*update: This is the 3rd one I have sent back and after another replacement its faulty again. I'm now researching for a different product.
Some words of advice:
-Epilating is painful, but it's something you become entirely numb to with time.
-Do NOT use the film shaver given with the 7681, unless you want to suffer the endless ingrown hairs.
-Buy an exfoliator and use it with every shower, some hairs will become ingrown.
-Be careful, some bits and pieces can get caught and it is not like being hugged by kittens made of marshmellows.
-Use it every time you shower. It is unbelievably easy to maintain your hairlessness.
-Keep it charged. Despite the epilators being able to run for at least 15 minutes after the red light has started flashing, nothing is worse than a half finished mankini.
Braun does a great job of bathroom electronics and as far as I am concerned, their epilators are the best available.Read more ›
I am pretty sure that there is no pain free epilation but there is tolerable epilation. I bought this product today and I moved from leg hair to an underarm hair experiment in under 30 minutes.
After reading others' histories I would like to share the results:+
It will probably hurt more if you have thick, maybe black hairs. Reduce the pain by shaving them down and catching them when they are shorter after a week of regrowth.
It hurts more the first time you do it, not because you are not used to the shock (more like a shock than a pain) but because you have a lot more hairs to pull out than you will ever have to pull out again if you keep up the regime. The first time is the worst. Childsplay after that. Smaller number of hairs equals plucking your eyebrows level of discomfort. not much, in other words.
Way less painfull than waxing. The snag is that it is easier to accept pain than to do it to yourself so it takes a leap of persitence. I think that this is the hard thing. It is much less painful though.
Work your way up. This product has 2 fittings and 2 settings. Use the least invasive hair ripper on the slowest setting to get rid of the forest. Then refine. you WILL be looking smug when you have the number 4 - highest speed with closest action. Pretty much no hairs left by then and you are the terminator.
Finally, and most importantly. Do not start with the hairy shins. Do start off with the fleshy calves with fewer hairs and more fat. It will encourage you.
Having passed on these practical tips I can only say that I will never wax or shave again. My legs feel so great and smooth I keep stroking them. Saving a fortune on painful waxing or useless shaving. I am a convert.
