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.

          Comments about Braun Silk Epil X'elle Epilator:

          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!!

              I use this after soaking in a hot bath. It takes some getting used to and at first it may hurt. I use a numbing solution on my armpits to help with the pain but the skin on your legs is tougher. I find it worth the money and pain because you are left with really smooth skin for about two weeks.

                I have been using an Epilady type product to remove hair on my legs for quite a few years. This product is lighter, ergonomically designed and so far pulling out the hairs quicker not requiring me to go over the same area numerous times.

                I bought a few epilators in the past three months, this was the best one and the final purchase. It gets hair but you need to have a few strokes, but it doesn't pinch the skin and it covers a wide area. You can use it on hard to reach places. I like it, but it would be better if it was truly cordless.

                  This epilator does very well at what is required of it. It is capable of removing hair quickly and efficiently. With that being said, a word of warning... if you planning to remove a dense area of hair, it can be quite painful.... this could just by my personal experience though. (I found that I needed to frequently stop and start again in some areas to give myself a pep talk!! HA!) But, that being said, most areas weren't too terrible to stand which is the good news.
