works great, but...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Braun SE 7681 Silk-Epil Wet and Dry Epilator (Silver) (Health and Beauty)
first of all, this epilator does its job well. second of all, in doing its job, it hurts like a %#@&!. the first time i used it, i was literally crying and going, "ow! ow! ow! ow!!" but if you're serious about removing hair, you'll grit your teeth and keep going, because this machine works.
a word of warning to anyone who suffers from ingrown hairs like i do: this will not stop them. in fact, after epilating for the first time, i was covered with even more, pus-filled ingrown hairs (charming, eh?!) the pus part of the reaction seems to be toning down now that i've epilated numerous times, but i'm glad i didn't epilate for the first time the day before an important event. the ingrowns are still in full force. since that is a personal issue and no fault of the epilator, i haven't taken it into account in my review.
my review is based on its performance (5*s), the length of time it holds its charge (4*s), and its ease of use (3*s because of the pain!). i would definitely recommend this model to a friend.
