Comments about Braun Silk Epil X'elle Epilator:

I got this a little over two years ago and it has been an amazing product to use. I was shaving before I got it but when I started using it, I noticed the hair did not grow for a few days and then over times it would take 2-3 for any hair to start growing back. When beginning to use it, it will hurt as the hair is not used to being pulled out like that if your shave or nair/veet but you will get used to it. When I first started, it would take me 20 mins to epilate my underarms but now it take max five to do both. I only use it for my underarms and bikini area and it works great. I would highly recommend this for the price, you get more than what you paid for. Before I forget, it is easier to use this if some baby powder is applied before. If the area is wet or damp, it will take longer and hurt a bit.

      Comments about Braun Silk Epil X'elle Epilator:

      Fantastic epilator. By far the best I have used. Of course it is a bit painful, but that's the process not the tool. It is quicker and far more effective than other, more expensive epilatord I have used. My highly sensitive skin is left with the lightest red spots that disappear soon after use, unlike the bumps and long-lasting redness I'm used to with epilating. Great product, highly recommend!

        I've had it for years and love it. I bought this one for my niece who was always too scared of the pain but she tried this and loves it. She said it does not hurt and does not pinch the skin because of the guard on top of the blades.

            Comments about Braun Silk Epil X'elle Epilator:

            Overall I am VERY happy with this Epilator. It's easy to use, gives great results, and it's a decent price considering how much you'll save using it. Shaving with a razor never gave me the close shave I was after, and waxing was way too long of a process. (Waiting 1-2 weeks of being hairy to get the perfect wax wasn't worth it.) Of course, everyone's hair growth rates are different, but it didn't work for me. Epilating on the other hand pulls the hair from the root, it lasts just as long as a wax, but you can do it even when your hair is on the shorter side! I was mostly worried about the pain upon buying it, but it's definitely manageable and worth while. It hurts less than waxing in my opinion. The only downfall is that if you have sensitive skin, you're going to want to allow a day in between epilating and showing where you've 'shaved' due to some minor irritation. And be sure to exfoliate! If you neglect the areas that you have 'shaven', ingrown hairs run wild. (I recommend a dry brush for exfoliation.)

                What I really love about this product is makes the hair grow less & thinner, however; it grows back in about 2 weeks NOT about 4 weeks.

                    I read so many reviews on different epilators and I decided to try this one. I have never used an epilator before but I was tired of shaving or paying for waxing, so I thought I'd give it a try. I love it! I Haven't had any problems with the power cord coming unattached from the unit, as many reviewers complained about. To be honest, I just think they aren't pushing it in all the way. I actually prefer the cord because it has great power as opposed to the cordless epilators that need to be charged and probably lose power over time. It is so quick and easy to use. I have used it on my arms and legs on the high setting and it worked so fast, just little pinches and it's done. I also used it on my underarms on the low setting and didn't feel a thing. I plan on using this on my bikini area next, on the low setting at first. I didn't bother with the cooling pack, but it's a nice thing to include and the carrying pouch holds the unit and cord perfectly. I wish I didn't wait so long to buy an epilator! Don't hesitate, buy this epilator!!
