5.0 out of 5 stars Hair's all gone!, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Braun Silk-épil 7 7681 Wet and Dry Cordless Epilator with 5 Attachments (Personal Care)
Being Mediterranean, I have very thick, very black hair. Though shaving with a good razor produced silk-smooth results, I always had black follicles left under the skin and that bugged me. I couldn't stand waxing, so I decided to try an epilator.

After reading many reviews, I decided that the Braun Silk-épil was the best line to go for, and the reviews were probably right!

I've decided to split this review into 3 sections:
- Pain Factor
- Skin Irritation
- Results
- Product Quality

Pain Factor -
I've never epilated before, so the first time I tried it...it hurt, but it wasn't unbearable. Then again, this is 40 tiny teasers rotating round super fast, yanking out your hairs, so of course it's going to hurt a bit. Yet, surprisingly enough, after a few sessions I found I'd gotten used to it, and now it hardly hurts at all! Kudos, Braun! ...I am still trying to pluck up the courage to go for my bikini line and under arms, though (pun not intended).

Skin Irritation -
The epilator is very gentle on my skin. I have virtually no irritation.
Right after epilation, my follicles will appear a bit red, but this will fade quickly. The epilator may also make your skin a bit dry if you're using it wet, but that's nothing some moisturiser can't fix.

Results -
After a few sessions, it took the hairs on my legs an entire week to grow to about 0.5cm, and they are so fine I didn't even notice they were there until I ran my epilator over them. After having really thick, black leg hair, this is an AMAZING result!
Please don't except the silk-smooth results you would get with a razor though, because you will be disappointed, haha.
This epilator won't get you silk-smooth, but it WILL drastically slow regrowth and make your hairs so fine you will hardly notice them (give it a few sessions, though!).

Product Quality -
I actually find 1 charge will keep my epilator going for 2-3 sessions. ...Awesome.
I absolutely love that this can be used wet -- if you're worried about the pain, using the epilator in the shower will definitely help, as the water sensation against your legs will help ease the sting.
The product itself is very sturdy and I have had no issues whatsoever.

5/5 :) good job, Braun!
