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.

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.

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.

Does its job pretty well, maybe too well compared to an older model (I have been using one for more than 5 years), because it can pull more hairs at once meaning more pain. But starting from the softer regime it is possible to get used to it. I cannot prove the claim that the epilator can pull tiny hairs of 0.5 mm.

Color Name:Pink|Verified Purchase
Did exactly what I expected it to. Yes it hurts but I like the fact it comes with a trimmer head for in between epilations if I don't have time or am not ready for another session. So far worth every cent.

I only gave it 4 stars because the wire has to be plugged in at all times but this epilator does exactly as expected and get's "hair-plucking" job done!
I love the fact that you can now wash it underwater too.
