Hello lovely ladies,
Today, I am reviewing a Braun Silk épil epilator. Read on to know how it fared.
Price: INR 8895 (I got this on some discount); it comes with 2-year Braun India guarantee.
The Silk-épil 7 Wet & Dry epilator removes even the shortest, finest hairs, right down to 0.5 mm long. That’s as small as a grain of sand. The 40 tweezers in Braun’s Close-Grip technology ensure superior performance and the most thorough hair removal.
As it’s cordless, it can also be used dry or in the bath or shower for the gentlest epilation.
My Experience with Braun Silk-épil 7 7-561 – Wet&Dry Cordless Epilator:
I was eyeing these epilators from Braun for quite a long. And finally I have got the opportunity to grab this baby. Everyone wants a smooth and hair free skin. I have tried everything from waxing to plucking. This time, I decided to give this one a try. This epilator comes with some additional features. It is a wet & dry model and hence it can be used in bathtub or shower but it must be operated in cordless mode keeping the safety matters in mind. These are designed specially to use in warm water as it improves the blood circulation and increases the comfort of your experience. The 40 tweezer close grip technology removes even the shortest and the finest hair. The pivoting head helps to adapt to the body contours. It comes with a smart light, which guides through the whole process. It has a high frequency massage system, which soothes the whole plucking sensation during epilation. The epilator heads are easily washable.
The epilator comes in a black cardboard packaging. It comes with six attachments:
1. Shaver Head – Allows you to use it as a dry shaver.
2. Trimmer Cap – To trim hair in sensitive areas.
3. High Frequency Massage System – To soothe the plucking sensation.
4. Sensitive Area Cap- Perfectly fits to underarms and bikini area.
5. Facial Cap – To remove unwanted facial hair.
6. Efficiency Cap – Ensures maximum skin contact for faster epilation.
Along with these attachments, there comes a white coloured pouch for carrying all the attachments together. You also get a 12 V Braun charger. This charger takes approx. 1 hour to charge the device completely. This fully charged device lasts for approx. 45 minutes. Using a fully charged device is advisable to avoid any inconveniences. The charging light flashes when the epilator is charging and then it glows permanently when the epilator is fully charged. A small, white brush is provided to clean the epilator and shaver head. The packaging also contains a user manual and a guarantee card. The manual has all the answers to your questions.
The epilator is lightweight and does not create much noise. The epilator comes with two speed settings to work with but I normally prefer to use the first speed setting. The whole epilation process is quite easy and convenient. I started using it on my hands first. It picked even the finest hair effectively and my skin felt soft and smooth. There is a slight pain during this process but it is bearable. I love the results it gave. It gave me that smooth and hair free skin in the comfort of home. Then I tried using it on my legs and what I observed is that the epilator does not epilate the coarse hair in one go and I had to roll it over one place twice or thrice to get all the hair removed.
I never dared to epilate the sensitive areas, so I cannot comment over that. But, yes I have tried epilating some facial hair. I put the facial cap first before using it on the face. It effectively removed my facial hair with a very little pain. It plucks the hair from the roots and leaves my skin baby soft. Moving on to it shaver head, I find it to be a really good shaver. It effectively and closely removes all the hair. The trimmer cap helps in trimming the hair from sensitive areas where you will not prefer shaving. I have used this epilator twice or thrice and I have not got any bumps or redness on my skin. It is quite safe on my sensitive skin. But, I regularly exfoliate my skin to combat the problem of ingrown hairs. Though the epilator epilates the long and coarse hair too, but sometimes it breaks them up and gives the shaving kind of finish. So, I prefer to use it every 15-20 days, when hair starts to grow back. It takes around half an hour to epilate my arms and legs. So the overall experience with this epilator has been great so far.
