    Comments about Braun Silk-Epil 7:

    I have thick, dark, coarse hair that I have been struggling with my entire life. Not only that, but my hair grows notoriously fast. This is my first epistle, and I am pretty impressed. Shaving is too irritating to my skin, professional waxing is so expensive, and waxing at home is so messy and painful. What would normally take me 1 1/2 hours to wax myself only takes me 1/2 hour with the epilator. I'm so glad I found this in time for summer and shorts.

    Comments about Braun Silk-Epil 7:

    I consistently use braun's silk epil 3 but wanted to get the latest model to speed up the epilation time and to reduce the abnoxious device sound. I was so excited to try this new version (epil 7) but am very disappointed with the results. The speed is very slow even when the fastest speed button is selected. It doesn't pick up hair especially when the device's messager head attachment (purple) is on. I had better luck when I took that off and directly used the epilator on my lower legs. It took just at long at my old epilator (20 tweezers vs. 40 tweezers on this new epilator). The tweezers are too tiny and miss the hair so you have to go over repeatedly. The light is not bright enough. The only good thing about this newer version is that the sound is not so loud and the device is not bulky compared to previous versions. It took me 40 mins to just do my lower legs which didn't even have that much hair only some hair. Even though I really don't want to go back to my old epil 3 because the loud sound (even with the ear plugs on) really irritate me and it takes forever to epilate with the 20 tweezers, the performance is much better than this newer model. I will be returning the item if possible

        The first time using this is quite painful, because it is pulling all the hair out at once. But when I used it one week later it was far less uncomfortable, only half of my hair grew back. This hair removal tool is wonderful! It is so nice not having to shave several times a week. I definitely recommend this product.

        Comments about Braun Silk-Epil 7:

        Product came fully charged so I used it right away. I started at my ankles and went against the grain,holding the epilator at a 90° angle. Don't press too hard or it will pinch your skin! I had been growing my leg hair for about a month so it was long enough to epilate. It removed all the coarser,dark hairs,but left all my fine hairs so my legs were left with stubble. It didnt hurt so much on my calves,but it was so painful when using it on my thighs!I tried it on my armpits and it pinched my skin really bad. I would not recommend this for the sensitive bikini area. After about 2 weeks I was left with ingrown hairs on my thighs,but not too bad-i didn't use the exfoliator attachment,but I don't know if that would've helped much. If you are prone to ingrown hairs this is not a good idea!Plus it's very loud and loses charge quickly, though the guiding light was helpful. I ended up returning it because it was too much money.

          I've been using another brand epilator for more than 10 years and it works fine, but a year ago I bought Silk-Epil 7,because it's a newer version and I thought that it is better.NO IT IS NOT.I have to charge it every 30 min, because the battery lasts only 30 min, and I can not use it while it is plugged in since it's wet/dry epilator. All the parts are plastic, even the rotating mechanism. It worn out so fast, it does not rotate anymore. Useless epilator!!!DON'T buy it. I'll go back to my 10 years old good epilator.

              As a first time epilator user, i was so pleased!!!! There's no doubt that it hurts for a brief moment but ONLY if the hair is too long. My underarms, bikini area, and legs stay cleanly groomed. I love it! Definitely worth the $$$

              I bought this to remove my head hair during chemo for leukemia treatment. I already own and use a cheaper version but it was very time consuming and not as effective as this promised to be . I am used to epilating pain but head hair Hurts ! Cant exactly blame the product for that. My main CON is that it DOESN'T get as close as it says. Hair must be longer than " a grain of salt " which was a big let down.
