I bought this for facial hair. I am 40 and have issues with dark hair on my chin, upper lips and cheeks. I am very fair. I would first off say that this product works fairly well. It takes care of my problems, though I have to use it every other day. Not a big deal considering I was tweezing every day. It does leave my skin smooth and cuts down on my morning grooming time. I will say it hurts, and still hurts after several months of use. It hurts the worse on the upper lip, but it is only momentary and goes away quickly. The pain is worth the results. This does have problems pulling out course hair, but that is probably due to the fact that it is hard to pull the skin tight in some areas. I give it 4 stars because of how frequently I have to use the product. Overall I see a HUGE improvement

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of epilating with an in-water epilator?
Warm water relaxes and soothes your skin. The warmth improves your microcirculation, stimulates the production of pain-reducing substances, and makes your skin less sensitive. This is why the tugging sensation is considerably reduced in water.
Is it safe to use the Braun Silk-épil 7 Wet & Dry in the shower and bath?
The Braun Silk-épil 7 Wet & Dry is 100% waterproof and is safe for use in or out of the shower and bath. The product features an automatic shutoff mechanism that ensures the appliance operates only once the cord is removed from the main power and recharger dock. This safety mechanism guarantees that the corded appliance cannot be taken into the water and operated.
This is my first time epilating. How should I go about it?
Braun Silk-épil epilators are perfect for first-time users. The active massage rollers softly stimulate your skin with micropulsations before and after removing the hair, leaving your skin more relaxed. Still, if you are inexperienced, you might feel some discomfort during your first epilating sessions. This will decrease with each session as the skin adjusts to the process. Also, the individual hairs grow back at different speeds depending on their particular growth cycle, so there will be less hair to remove after the first epilation.
Does more hair grow back if I epilate?
No. In fact, dermatological tests have shown that ongoing epilation reduces the amount of hair regrowth.
How do I prepare my skin for epilating?
The best preparation for epilating is a nice, warm shower. It will leave your skin clean and relaxed. Be sure to use gentle, pH-neutral shower gel and keep the water warm, not hot, to avoid drying out your skin.
Is epilation painful?
Silk-épil epilators have been specifically developed to minimize any discomfort and irritation.
How do I charge my epilator?
To charge, push the charging cord into the epilator’s charging socket until it clicks. The first time you connect your charging cord, it might require firm pressure. After a few connections, it will be easier to click it in.
