Frequently Asked Questions

This is my first time epilating – how should I go about it?
Braun’s Silk épil epilators are the perfect choice for first-time users. Their active massage rollers softly stimulate your skin with micro pulsations 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 a 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 specially developed to minimize any discomfort and irritation.

This was purchased for my girlfriend who was getting fed up with shaving and got to try an old Silk-Epil from a friend for a few week. After only a few uses, she noticed how the hair was getting finer and not growing as fast on her thighs already, so she decided this product was a must to add to her feminine grooming arsenal!

This is a neat little package with various attachment serving dedicated purposes. Depending on your needs, you might not use all attachments, but at least the options are available.

A few weeks later, she is now doing thighs and lower legs at a decent speed (about 10 minutes per leg) and is very satisfied with the product.

The only downside, but this is her fault really: ingrown hairs have become a problem, but she won't exfoliate although she was always prone to in grown hairs. I am sure that if she took the time to exfoliate regularly, this problem would get better rapidly.

Very pleased with this product. A huge improvement over the (much, much) older model I had. Comes with lots of accessories so no other razor/cream/wax is ever needed. For me (but not everyone) the pain was insignificant. A good rub with your hand after you run the epilator over the area makes any sting go away. A cooling gel that comes with it works well too if needed. I love the mitt that the gel goes into so your hand doesn't freeze. I guess it depends on how much hair you have and how sensitive you are that determines how much pain there is. But I promise, it will be all worth it if you keep it up for a few months.
Most of all I love the fact that I hardly ever have to use it. The hair stays gone for weeks and any that does come in is very soft and fine. No more razor stubble. Exfoliating first helps to avoid ingrown hairs. After using the epilator for a few months you'll find that less and less hair grows back. After a year of using my old one, I had basically no hair left on my legs even after a few months of no shaving. I also use it for the bikini area and underarms, which did take a bit of bravery. But, again, all worth it!

I am so happy with this one!! I had a really old Braun, and I just used it for my hands. I decided to update it after 7 years :D, mainly because it was slow. But, this one is not only faster, it is so painless and effective. I'm so happy with this, used it on my legs and bikini lines for the first session as well.

I ordered this item for my girlfriend for her birthday. The delivery was in time and the item in new condition. She is very happy with it. She says that it is really effective and removes the hair fast. She also says that it is not as painful as it was said to be. So far we are happy with this product.

But it could be faster and more efficient on fine hair. Also, I thought the light was not necessary but turns out to be quite essential. Makes fine hair easier to find.

It is the first epilator I ever bought and I am very happy with my purchase. I was looking for a cheap epilator since it was my first one and I was scared I wouldn't like it but I LOVE it ! It doesn't hurt at all (I am not very hairy) and the little massage it gives is awesome. The best thing about this epilator is definitely the light that helps SO MUCH finding all the hairy spots on the legs ! I definitely recommend this epilator for someone who wants a cheap but effective way to have nice smooth legs all year round.

I really like this epilator. As a first time user, I was a little bit hesitant about whethe I should get one of continue with waxing; however, this was getting too expensive so i decided to go for thr epilator. I does hurt a lot but it's managable since I get to work it in shorter stripes (not as waxing which is a longer stroke). The only con for this epilator is that I feel like the roller gets a bit warm too quick, making it uncomfortable for me to use it and thus having to wait to let it 'cool down'.

Bought this product about a month ago. It is an excellent epilator, not my first. I've tried the epilating head along with the razor and trimmer and they all work very, very well. The LED light is very helpful, the device does not heat up like the other epilators I've used before, the epilator is also thorough and not too painful. I even dropped it from a very high area by mistake and it still worked fine! I'm a fan!
