Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition

Item 2292953

Find in Store-

Braun Silk-Epil 9, the new standard of epilation excellence with a wide epilation head, for faster results, and breakthrough MicroGrip tweezer technology. With a 40% wider head (vs. other Braun epilators) the new Silk-epil 9 covers more area and removes more hair in one stroke for faster epilation. The MicroGrip tweezer technology introduces Braun's most innovative tweezers with an improved geometry to increase the plucking and feeding performance and gently remove more hairs in one stroke. The combination of these two features results in faster hair removal, even on the shortest hairs (0.5 mm.) that wax cannot catch, for up to 4 weeks of smooth skin.

Additionally, the wet & dry cordless usage allows you to use it in the bath or shower for a gentler epilation. When used regularly, epilation is virtually painless. The Silk-epil 9 features a high frequency massage system that stimulates the skin for an extra gentle epilation. It also has 2 speed settings that allow you to adapt to your beauty routine and skin needs: choose speed 1 for an extra gentle epilation, speed 2 for an extra efficient epilation. For better skin contact and even gentler performance, the pivoting head smoothly adapts to your body contours for more comfort and maximum thoroughness.

The smartlight reveals even the finest hair for extra thorough hair removal. So no little hair is missed and you can enjoy up to 4 weeks of smooth skin. The Bonus Edition features a facial cleansing brush that removes make-up and impurities up to 6x better than manual (vs. manual cleansing with a wash-off gel). The brush prepares skin for moisturization, boosts circulation and leaves skin clean, radiant and refreshed.

  • Epilator
  • Facial brush
  • 5 Caps

Good epilator

By DetroitGal

from Detroit, MI

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Can be charged & used anywhere w/out the cord

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Legs, arms, underarms

    Comments about Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition:

    I bought this as a replacement for my Silk 5 which finally died after 4 years using on my legs & arms. I don't see any improvement over the old version. It claims to get finer hairs, but I still see missed hairs on my legs & arms. I do like that this can be rechargeable and used without the cord - big plus because I don't have any natural light in my bathroom. I tried the facial attachment and that really hurt. I also used it on my underarms and it was very painful (more than when I waxed) but it did a good job, so I'll switch to it instead of expensive wax. (maybe I'll try frozen bag of veggies to pre-treat area first).

    Short autonomy and no way to plug while in use.

    By Difolk

    from Brentwood, NY

    Comments about Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition:

    This epilator is really good, Though when I bought it, I didn't realize that its cordless option was not allowing to plug it while in use, if desired. There's no choice between the two, it's one or the other, according to which you buy. You have to understand that if the one you choose is cordless, there's no way to plug it while in use, it only works through recharging it like a phone. And I find it a great disadvantage because its autonomy is rather short and if you are not done plucking an area, you have to interrupt yourself and wait for the epilator to charge for 1 hour. Personally I like to pluck both my legs, thighs included, both forearms, both armpits and bikini all during the same session, and get rid of it all at once, once in a while. This epilator does not allow that, and it's extremely inconvenient. Its autonomy also seems to decrease over time, making it more and more useless. All in all it's a good epilator, but not if you want to use it for longer than 20 to 30 minutes at a time. I'm a user of epilators for years, I pretty much always have since I started removing my body hair during adolescence, I know what I'm talking about.

    Good purchase

    By Candyb4

    from Cleveland, OH

    Comments about Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition:

    I would definitely recommend this product. I bought this about a month ago primarily for the intent of hair removal from my legs. My leg hair is not very coarse, and it is relatively fine. I shave my legs every 4-5 days. I used it once when I first got it, and I did not have to use it again for about 3 weeks. The first time I used it, I used it dry. It took 15-20 minutes. It was pretty painful, especially over my shins, but I got through it. The second time I used it, I soaked in the bathtub for 10 minutes before I got started. This helped immensely with the pain. It was nearly painless. It doesn't work as well wet but I dried off and quickly finished up with great results and little pain. The battery lasts for plenty of time to complete the whole process of removing my leg hair and then some. I have also used the epilator on my eyebrows. It took a little finesse, and the facial cap attachment. I'm used to plucking my eyebrows, so this did not hurt. In fact, I think it was less painful than plucking because it went so fast. The device is high quality. The attachments are all very nice. It's very easy to use and to figure out how it works. The light on the device is helpful too. The instructions recommend that your hair be the length of 2mm-5mm. That means your hair has to grow a little bit before you can use it, which is not a big deal to me, but it may be to some people. I am not sure if I will ever get the courage to try it on my bikini area. I imagine that would be incredibly painful, but I'm sure it would work great there too.

    By Samantha

    from Connecticut

    Pros

    • Chin and leg is not painful
    • Remove hair

    Cons

    • Hair came back next day
    • I can see hair that it just will not pluck
    • Underarm is painful
    • Upperlip is painful

    Best Uses

    • Havent found any yet

    Comments about Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition:

    I am hoping that the issues I am experiencing are user error, but I just don't know how to make this work. It breezes over hair and doesn't pluck. I have to go over the same spot so many times...and still not smooth. I'm really confused how this is supposedly so helpful for others. I am going to watch some tutorials and try in the shower next. Very disappointed.

    Impressed overall

    By Fragilegirl

    from Wyoming, DE

    Comments about Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition:

    I used the Emoji brand of epilator prior to this one. After about a year or so of use, the Emoji motor gave out. I owned 3 of them and it happened with each of them. I decided to try this Braun because of the good reviews and it comes with a light, which is important as my eyesight is poor. I've used it twice and am really pleased with it. It pulls the hairs out easily and the massage head makes the process more comfortable. The shaver head is adequate, a standard shaved. I use the facial brush in the shower, it's nice, not too hard or soft and has 2 speed settings. Cost a bit more than I wanted to spend but so far no regrets.

    PERFECT FOR LEGS

    By The Baroness

    from Chicago

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Easy to use
    • Effective
    • Good value
    • Versatile

    Cons

    • Not great for bikini line

    Best Uses

    • Legs
    • Underarm

    Comments about Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition:

    This epilator is perfect for legs. It's super effective and I find the fast, little plucks to be strangely satisfying.
    I used to need to shave every other day. Over time, my hair didn't come back feeling as prickly. Now, I only epilate every few days, and rarely use a razor.
    I use the electric razor attachment to shave underarm hair when I don't want to wet-shave in the shower.
    This epilator moves a metal pincer against plastic. This gripping strength just right to effectively pull leg hair.
    I would recommend a dedicated bikini epilator with metal-to-metal pincers to pluck coarser hair and with a smaller head. (I bought a Phillips brand bikini epilator.)
    Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.

    My legs have never looked so bad! =(

    By HappyFeetInTheSand

    from Boca Grande, FL

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition:

    Upon reading all of the positive reviews, I was so hopeful that this would be worth the expense. Wrong!

    First, the positives - it does an okay job on underarms and the facial brush is very nice.

    Neutral - I cannot contribute helpful input as to pain. I have MS and therefore my legs always feel like I am being stabbed with needles. Yeah, not fun.

    Cons - it has turned my once nice smooth legs into ugly chicken skin. Gross!! Also, very inconsistent hair regrowth. I have exfoliated, tried wet and dry, tutorials, reviews, etc. and nothing works.

    A very disappointing product. I would have given it less stars, but I gave it credit for the underarms and the facial brush. I would have returned it but someone recycled the box, and honestly I don't know Ulta's return policy on a product like this. Hmm, something for me to find out. ;)

    • Slight pain

      Comments about Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition:

      I received a $75 Ulta gift card for Christmas, plus I had $53 in rewards to use, so I figured I would look into the epilator I've been entertaining for quite some time; I ended up paying less than $20 out of pocket. I had never used one before, but I have PCOS and with that comes unwanted hair growth. I've shaved daily for years and I spend $300+ annually on razors. I also own a waxing kit for things like my legs and underarms, but that gets costly also. I have large pores and shaving leaves little dark hairs right underneath the surface that due to my large pores can easily be seen, additionally I am prone to ingrown hairs if I'm not super careful.

      I bought the Silk-Epil 9 in hopes of combating at least some of these issues. I made the purchase yesterday and got home and tried it on a small patch of skin on my leg. Not only did it remove the hair completely, quickly and easily, but it also removed anything below the surface preventing these dark pores from showing. I'm happy to report that this section of my leg is completely hairless today, no sign of stubble yet which would definitely be present already if I shaved last night.

      As far as pain is concerned, after reading numerous reviews that described epilating as "horrible pain", "so painful" or the "worst experience in life", it really wasn't a big deal. It was more irritating than painful, I didn't pull away or wince with pain at all, I didn't need to numb the area beforehand or ice afterwards. It really was a non-event. That being said, I do have numerous tattoos and piercings and tolerate pain decently; I can honestly say every single one of my tattoos hurt worse than epilating.

      This is definitely worth the cost and I have no regrets!

      The product has a pathetic battery life...

      By Avantika

      from Harrisburg, PA

      Comments about Braun Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition:

      i have to charge this product every 30 minutes for 2 hours before I can use it again. Plus this product cannot run after connecting to the power adapter. It is a complete waste of time and money. Spending 12 hours Epilating the entire body in a single day is absolutely crazy.
