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.

Silk-epil 9 Wet & Dry Epilator Bonus Edition Includes:
  • Epilator
  • Facial brush
  • 5 Caps
  • Charging stand
  • Pouch
  • Brush

Awesome

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

Yeah, this hurts, but you get over it. More than anything it's scary cause it's so loud. I got it yesterday and did my armpits...now they're HAIR FREE and I LOVE IT. Of course having 40 hairs being pulled out by tiny tweezers is going to hurt! It's so worth it. The pain wasn't terrible, it was like popping a bad zit and then being like "omg that hurt." It's uncomfortable, but it WORKS. Also- since I did my armpits first, my legs were so easy to do! It's really noisy..I did it in my bathtub with the water running lightly and music playing to drown out the terrifying noise from the epilator hahaha. Super excited about this product! GET IT! Just know it will hurt but it's nothing you can't handle.
ALSO- I did mine last night for the first time. Wear a loose shirt the next day. I'm at work and my shirt is tight and its a bit uncomfortable because my armpits are pretty tender and my shirt is rubbing them. Just some advice. BUY THIS.

I actually like it

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

I was really hesitant to use this, but it turned out to be a great product. The key is defiantly to hold your skin tight which minimizes pain exponentially. My legs and bikini line are silky smooth. Tried on my armpits, but that was a different level of pain. Even with the skin tight it made my eyes water. I'll stick with the legs and bikini line for now.

This is the BEST thing since SLICED BREAD!

By ErinMarie

from Salt Lake City, UT

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

I just used the Silk-epil 9 Epilator on my legs and armpits and WOW! The hair is GONE far, far, away.......for at least 3 weeks. I've waxed my armpits personally before and it was worth it, however, the cost and the mess weren't. My aunt briefly mentioned epilation a few months ago. I thought a million tweezers coming at 2 weeks of hair growth on my legs on armpits would hurt but it DIDN'T. Now I can just go over my legs whenever I want to. I used it going different directions because hair grows in different directions. I have all of the heads that come with it, I just decided to try it out of the box. For more sensitive skin users, the heads may be needed. Thank you, Braun and Ulta! My day is FULL of hair-less possibilities!

Good epilator

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

    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.

    • 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.
