Braun Series 3-3170 Silk Epil Epilator Review

braun series 3

Braun’s Silk-Epil series offer us some of the most popular Epilators in the world, in fact, it is probably the best known brand out there for this type of product. The series 3 is very much the ‘baby’ of the range, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and this still offers a range of features making it a real player if you’re looking for a top of the range hair removal device.

Braun Series 3-3170 Silk Epil Epilator Features

The following features are built in the epilator:

  • 20 tweezers to ensure maximum hair is plucked efficiently for smooth skin
  • Massaging rollers to ensure your skin is relaxed and stimulated to make the process easier
  • Smartlight to make sure all hair strands are visible, so no hair is missed in the process
  • Delivers up to a whole month of smooth skin wherever you choose to put it to use
  • Two inbuilt speeds for different levels of intensity

Braun have a handy comparison table which shows the features of the Series 3-3170 in comparison to its siblings in the Silk-Epil range. A look at that will show you that this is the baby of the range. It doesn’t exfoliate like some of the other models, and it isn’t a wet and dry model (you can’t use it in the bath and shower) but that doesn’t mean you should be put off, it still offers enough features for most of us and is a versatile hair removal solution.

It offers 20 tweezers, which is really slap bang in the middle of what most of these products offer, the smaller ones often have 9 or 12 whilst large models have up to 60. 20 is big enough to allow you to use it on areas like your legs, but is still small enough to do some detailing, and areas like your bikini line or even you eyebrows or other facial fuzz!

Having two different speed modes means you can opt for the more gentle option or go all out for efficiency (and bravery) and switch it up to level two! This is a great choice for a lot of us to have and make s this one of the best epilators for beginners.

This product seems to be a popular choice for people who are looking for smooth and silky skin. Though a problem a lot of people encounter is that this way of removing hair can result in redness and ingrown hairs, reviews of the silk-epil suggest that this is not a problem if you ensure you fully grow out your hair before using. Furthermore reviews state that if you are sick and tired of avoiding wearing skirts and are looking to prolong hair growth on your legs than this epilator definitely does the job.

A small tip to keep is mind is that you should pull your skin tight whilst using this to reduce pain. Also reviews suggest that the areas around your ankles are really sensitive so do not begin from there and growing your hair out reduces pain throughout. We have a full guide on keeping Epilating as painless as possible here on the site too.

Conclusion

The one main advantage this has over the rest of the Silk-Epil range is the price. Cheaper than the rest of the models, it offers a lot of the features of its bigger sisters, but for half the price! If you need a wet and dry model, this isn’t the one for you, but for a versatile, reliable model, small enough to take on your travels and use on small areas of your body yet still able to handle legs and other larger areas, this is the one for you. Braun know what they’re doing, and the Series 3-3170 is another home run from the electronics giant. Comes with our top recommendation if you need a budget yet good quality product.

The Best Epilators For Your Bikini Line Reviewed

bikiniEpilators are the modern and efficient way to remove unwanted hair, and perhaps the most unwanted hair of all for a woman is around the bikini line. Epilators are generally designed to be good at providing smooth skin, but some do the job better than others, and that is why a little consideration is required when deciding on an epilator for one of the more delicate areas, your Bikini Line

The area around your Bikini Line is sensitive so a little though is require while purchasing a suitable model.

With so many options available shopping might be a challenge so we have compiled a list of 3 best Epilators for Bikini Line.

Braun FG 1100 Silk Épil Bikini Styler

First, the Braun FG 1100 Silk Épil Bikini Styler. A battery operated model. Available in pink and white, this is among the most affordable bikini line epilators. This product has great reviews and people like the sleek size and its user-friendly properties. Many have said that this model is good for facial hair and other areas as well as the bikini line, with eyebrows being another area you can easily sculpt with this small hair removal tool. Designed to remove hair in the more intricate area of the body, it is not the best quality of the three models, however it is great value for money as it is the cheapest on our list.

Emjoi Epi Slim

This makes it good for delicate areas, and the bikini line is definitely one of those! As well as this, you can use it on facial areas, underarm, eyebrows and more. We have a full written review of the Epi Slim here. It definitely comes with our recommendation.

Philips HP6378

Philips HP6378 Bikini Perfect Deluxe Trimmer is possibly the most impressive of all! Cordless, available in opal and aqua and is another quality and dependable hair removal device. Most of the reviews state that the epilator does a wonderful job in grooming the bikini line. It has an exceptional range of features, with six different attachments for different body parts and functions. This doubles up as a trimmer and a shaver too, making it good value for money if you need this to be versatile.

We hope this list does a good job in providing you with some of the most popular bikini line epilators available in the market.

The Best Epilators for Your Face

braun facial2Unwanted facial hair is a real problem, and leaves us with some choices for how we get rid of it. Shaving is a no-no, it isn’t efficient, but Epilating is a great solution! Waxing is perhaps the only other real option but is very painful and hard to get right, especially for the face.

Why Epilate Facial Hair?

There’s no denying facial hair is an issue, and not just for older women, people of all ages experience unwanted hair on their face, and for women it can be a difficult thing to deal with, making us self conscious or even seeing us mocked by others! Not good! If you were to shave, it won’t last long because it doesn’t remove hair right from the root, and even worse will leave a five-o-clock shadow which is not a good look. That’s why Epilating is such a good solution, it is like a mass tweezing – removing hair right from the root and making sure it doesn’t grow back quickly at all, some leaving 6 weeks of no visible growth at all.

Fortunately, there are some amazing facial epilators out there, the big manufacturers realizing that this is a massive problem for many women and introducing new models or adding features that are great for epilating the face to their existing range, so what are the best epilators for the face?

What to Look For In a Facial Epilator

  • A thorough coverage making sure all hair is removed
  • As painless as possible (though there are things you can do to help this)
  • Precision – some of the areas of the face can be hard to reach perfectly
  • Good for sensitive skin – a rash on your face or irritation can be equally bad.braun facial

Braun Facial Epilator

Braun are one of the leading manufacturers of these products for a reason, and they’ve recognized the need for facial models. The Braun Facial Epilator, sometimes branded as the Braun 810, is one of the top models you can buy for this reason, and has many features that we look for, and others that go above and beyond, making this a bit of a luxury product.

The full list of features are as follows:

  • 10 micro tweezers to capture even the tiniest and thinnest hairs, which other Epilators may miss.
  • A thin head to allow you to reach all the different areas of your face, this is also amazing for areas such as the eyebrows to make sure you don’t overdo it and keep the natural hair which you want to!
  • Smooth skin for four weeks in just a few seconds, the 200 pluck movements every single second mean this does the job very quickly and doesn’t have to be any longer than necessary.
  • Battery operated so no charging needed, also making it great for traveling.
  • Built in exfoliating function which will help you to avoid irritation and can even make the process less painful!

A great luxury model for unwanted facial hair removal. Brain have hit the nail on the head here, especially for those who already have a method of removing hair elsewhere. It is very small, so don’t try and use it on other areas such as legs, as this will make it a longer process than it needs to be.

Emjoi Epi Slim

epislim2Emjoi are another titan of women’s hair removal products, and their equivalent of the Braun Facial is the ‘Epi Slim‘ range. This little pocket rocket does a superb job of removing hairs on the face. It isn’t quite as fancy as the above, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a decent model, and it can do a great job for small areas of your body.

So at under half of the price, do the features match up? What is on offer here…

  • Great for delicate areas and can also be used for bikini line and other small parts of the body
  • 9 Tweezers to remove hair in small areas
  • Improved motor on the most recent model which means that it can remove hair quicker and with a lot more efficiency.
  • Battery powered and portable

Okay, so it doesn’t have the same features as the Braun, but it will still do a good job. Exfoliating is important but can still be done separately after you Epilate and doesn’t have to be a built-in feature, so the Epislim is a good model. This is versatile and can be used elsewhere on the body if you’re happy to do that, and can be taken with you on your travels.

Bellabe Facial Epilator

We have mentioned the Bellabe before on the site, and it is a good option for those of us on a budget and are happy to do ‘manual’ Epilating. Plus it doesn’t use batteries or power so is great for traveling or just saving the planet! This is basically a ‘threading’ method of hair removal, and you see it used a lot on areas such as eyebrows, but it works well for any area of your face, and removes hair right from the root.

Features of the Bellabe facial hair remover

  • Removes the need for fancy electronics, waxes, creams and other products. Simplify the whole process
  • Small, portable, fast and effective
  • Great for all areas of the face and especially good for eyebrows and peach fuzz on your face.

Some say the Bellabe takes a bit of getting used to, but the reviews online are very good, and once you know what you’re doing with it it can be an excellent product, which can be used in conjunction with an Epilator elsewhere on your body. Plus, it is very affordable and eliminates the need for messing around with batteries and chargers.

Conclusion

Any of the above models will serve you well in the world of facial hair removal, they will provide long term clarity of your skin, meaning you should only have to Epilate every 4-6 weeks. The three different options mean you have a choice to make based on features and price which one you buy, but considering the huge amount of features on offer, and how immensely well-received all of these products have been, any one of them would provide you with great value for money. Getting rid of the peach fuzz or overgrowing eyebrows should no longer be a problem!

How To Make Epilating Less Painful

hp6401 useIf there is a downside to Epilating it is the pain it can cause, especially if you don’t prepare and take precautions before going through with it, or if you’re new to the process and not used to the pain. Fortunately, there are some tips and tricks to make Epilating hurt less, and we’ve got the definitive guide for you here! The methods below are totally safe and most importantly they get the job done, some are products you can buy and some are just techniques, but all will help in some way.

Numbing Creams

lidocaineOne of the most popular methods people use, and one I do recommend if you can afford to spend a little extra, is utilizing numbing creams on the area in question before you go through the motions. This is also great for those of us who wax too. It is also known as Lidocaine, and one of the most popular types is called “Dr. Numb” – it is used for other pains and is really popular in tattoo parlours to help with the pain of this as well, so if it can help with the pain of needles inking your skin it should be able to help Epilation too! They usually have an effect for 2-3 hours but should be applied generously about an hour before you do the deed to make sure that they have taken effect. DO NOT just rub it on and go, or it won’t have had time to sink into your skin and actually take effect.

This doesn’t affect your skin elasticity or have any other negative effects and does the job perfectly, other Lidocaine creams will do a similar job but this is the one we recommend.

An alternative numbing cream which does a similar job, and is well reviewed on Amazon and other online retailers is the Numb Master. It is linked to below. Numb master is slightly more affordable which is positive, but only lasts for an hour and should be applied around 20 minutes before you begin the process of removing hairs. This doesn’t necessarily mean it is less effective, but the cycle is certainly quicker.

Other Tips

Although I believe creams are the best way to avoid pain when Epilating, there are other things you can do either as well or as an alternative. We’ve listed the rest of the methods below, and there’s no wives tales involved! It is all proven to help with hard science, lets kill the pain!

Hold The Skin Tight

One of the top tips for those of us who are getting on a bit in years too! If the skin is wrinkly or uneven it can cause a lot of pain, if the skin is tight the Epilator will function more efficiently and whip the hair right out with minimal irritation. All of us have areas (like the underarm for instance) that may need to be held tight to get the best result shaving.

Make Sure Your Hair is the Right Length Beforehand

Another big tip that can be really helpful. If the skin is too long there is a real nasty ‘pulling’ effect taking place. It isn’t nice and it makes the process hurt. If it is too short then the tweezers on your hair remover will struggle to get to it and remove it. Experiment with the right length to make sure you have something to grip but it is not pulling from a distance. Holding the epilator closer to the skin can have a similar effect and avoid gripping from the end of the hairs and feeling like your little brother pulling at your hairs when you were a kid!

Try it in The Shower

wetdryMAKE SURE you have a wet and dry model to do this, which means you can take it in the shower or bath with you. The best wet and dry Epilators offer some great features, and it helps a lot with the pain. Showering opens up your pores, in a way loosening the hair and making it easier to pull out, the resistance, and therefore the pain of removing it, is much less.

Exfoliate!

Exfoliating is good practice anyway, this will mean that there are less ingrown hairs as the exfoliator gets rid of dead skin and clears the pores so you avoid redness, infection and loads of other negatives, plus it makes the skin feel really smooth in the long run. It reduces the pain but also the inconvenience of having ingrown hairs after use, which is a very real possibility.

Buy the Right Epilator

This is a really key thing to consider, whether you have the right Epilator in the first place. Some of them are less painful than others, with some models designed to be better for sensitive skin and a low pain threshold. Some of them allow you to do it in the shower, which can help with the pain, others won’t. On our reviews we usually discuss how much they hurt and even put together this article about which models are the best for those of us with a lower pain threshold, to help you choose.

 

My Experiences

The first time you use an Epilator it does hurt, and the fact you’ve ended up reading this article tells me you probably know that already, but the above tips can go a long way to reducing that. Numbing cream is the biggest help in my opinion, combined with exfoliating regularly and having the right model to start with, the pain will be less. Plus, your body conditions itself to cope with it, you really do get used to it and the pain lessens the more regularly you do it. Keep going and soon you won’t be struggling at all.

  • Five different head attachments. Braun have included different heads for different purposes. There’s a trimmer head as well as four others, a facial head designed for peach fuzz and facial areas, a ‘sensitive’ cap which is great for areas such as the bikini line, there is also an ‘efficiency’ cap and the standard shaver head.
  • Cordless use for your convenience, meaning you don’t have to leave it plugged in at all times.
  • ‘Wet and Dry’ – as the title explains this is a wet and dry epilator, this means it can be used in the shower, not just for cleaning, but during the actual use of the product. This is helpful for two reasons, it is said to reduce the pain involved by stimulating the skin first, but also means that the clean-up operation afterwards is a lot more simple.
  • Claims to be able to get rid of hairs as small as 0.5 mm which is the size of a grain of sand!

  • 40 tweezers for maximum hair removal efficiency.

Best Women’s Epilators

silk-epilNowadays, there are many methods of removing unwanted hair, from epilators to removal cream. Most women are most familiar with shaving, simply because it is the most widely-known way of hair grooming and by far the easiest. However, there are a lot of disadvantages in shaving. One is that the hair that grows back in the shaved area tends to become thicker the more you shave it. You also have to be careful as the razor used is sharp and can cause wounds which can then lead to awful-looking scars.

Ever since epilating has been introduced, shaving has become a second-option, sometimes third (second being the ever popular waxing). Simply put, epilating is more effective, more efficient, and a hair grooming method that keeps the epilated area smooth for up to 4 weeks. In this article, we’ll discuss the most common areas women shave and the best epilators specifically tailored for that body part. Many think that Epilators are just for women, but this is not true, many men have turned to this method to remove unsightly hair such as back and neck hair.

1) Upper Lip

It isn’t pretty. You call the hair in the upper lip a mustache. The urban term, though, is femstache which means a female mustache. This is very common and genetics plays a huge role in having a femstache. However, not all women groom it, especially those who have thin and almost unnoticeable femstache. For those who have thick hair in the upper lip, they want to get rid of it, but don’t want to shave it. I personally think all women who has a femstache wants to get rid of it but just doesn’t know how to since they don’t want to shave it and risk it growing back thicker.

Recommended Epilator: Bellabe

Easy-to-use, affordable, and no complicated techniques needed. It’s more like you’re just doing an exercise. Bellabe is made up of two plastic handles on both sides and a spring-like mechanism that connects the two handles. You make the spring expand by letting the two handles meet and making a horseshoe shape, you put it in the femstache area, and you twist it using your thumb. Make a few passes on the upper lip and voila! All of your femstache will have been taken away, even the thinnest ones. Plus, with this, you don’t need electricity or battery. Just a pair of talented hands.

2) Underarms

99.99% of women I know don’t want any hair in their armpits. It just doesn’t look good. That’s all. Most women do shaving in this area and again, the hair grows back thicker. It also contributes to having dark underarms as the shaved area gets darker and darker the more you shave it.

Recommended Epilator : Emjoi Soft Caress

emjoi soft

The name sounds like it is going to be a cakewalk when you use this. I say differently. Most women who used it reviewed it as an epilator that’s initially painful to use and that will usually be the case for the first couple of sessions. But they also said, “The pain was worth it.” Results are astounding. No traces of hair will be found on your armpit and you will just need to repeat the process at least once a week to make sure no hair will be seen in your underarms.

 

3) General Epilating

If you’re looking for a good all rounder, you may be looking to epilate unwanted facial hair as mentioned above, as well as underarms, and other areas, namely the bikini area, your legs, and in some cases other areas. So what is a great, versatile model that can handle all of this?

Recommended Epilator: Silk Epil 7 by Braun

There is a reason it is the top selling Epilator at its price point, manufacturers Braun are excellent at producing grooming products, and this is no different, with 40 tweezers, four different heads and claiming to remove hairs better than waxing could ever hope to. It is also a wet and dry model which means you can use it in the shower or bath, or simply wash it off after use. Comes with our top recommendation.

Generally, women want to make sure they look good all the time. There’s no worse scenario than them being seen with unwanted hair in these body parts. With this guide, you’ll be able to pick the best epilators from among many to handle your hair grooming needs.

Braun vs Emjoi Epilators – The Showdown!

silk-epilEpilation, in a nutshell, is a revolutionary way of taking care of unwanted hair in the body. It covers all body parts and is more effective than any other methods like shaving, waxing, tweezing, etc. It all started in 1986 when Epilady, the very first company that made epilators, introduced this method to the public. It’s more like tweezing but done in a faster and more efficient manner where the area epilated stays smooth for up to 4 weeks.

In today’s market, there are two giants competing in the “best” title in epilators. Let’s take a look at both Braun and Emjoi.

Braun

The top Braun Epilators
Braun as a brand goes way back. It’s an ancient company, even older than the original creator of epilators. They started in the 1920’s and boomed in the late 1960’s as one of the top companies in producing small electronics. Things like hairbrush with buit-in wifi, vacuum cleaner that creates black holes, etc. (I’m totally kidding, by the way). Kidding aside, when they got involved in the epilation industry, it already has its own giants. But, being a company that has developed products for a long period of time, they quickly stole the spotlight with their top-of-the-line, highly innovative epilators that remain as best-sellers even today. The features are futuristic but the only downside is the price. Their brand is more like a concoction of the best qualities and the priciest materials for epilators. They make epilators that cater to all body parts in general and most of their epilators look really good.

Emjoi

The top Emjoi Epilators on The Market
Emjoi, on the other hand, is more like a steady player. They’ve rarely brought out something out of the ordinary, and never made a big noise as compared to Braun. But their products offer balance. They use natural materials and have always been a fan of keeping everything together. Efficiency and effectiveness is still present, although not as revolutionary as Braun. Their products cater the general public as their prices are really affordable. They strive to bring something new to the table from time to time but they don’t rush it, at least not as much as their nemesis. They’re more like the silent but steady competitor. They have a huge array of epilators that target specific areas of the body. This is great if you’re just looking to remove hair from one specific area. Recently, they’ve also made products related to pedicure and have bundled it with their epilators.

What Brand Should I Buy?

Branding is an important aspect to look at as a buyer. However in epilators, it really is about your preferences. Price plays a huge part in your decision. Whether you want to go for something “good enough” and affordable or something “great” but pricey is totally a choice that you have to make. You should also consider the areas of your body you’ll use the epilator at. If you’re someone who removes unwanted hair in a lot of parts in your body, then I would say Braun is the right choice for you. But if you’re looking to remove hair in a few specific parts, or want something such as a detailed eyebrow epilator or likewise, then you should totally go for Emjoi.

Wet and Dry Epilators: Reviewing the Best

silk-epilThe more effective a hair grooming method is, the more painful it can be. Shaving, although almost painless, can be a lot more inefficient and the side effects are just too much to put up with. Thicker hair growths, darker skin in the shaved area, and that is just to name a few. Tweezing is pretty painful, ineffective over large areas and can cause a irritation and ingrown hair, and well lets not even talk about waxing… Epilation, though, considered by many as one of the best methods, it can cause some discomfort, especially for the first few sessions. But as you grow accustomed to the pain, it becomes bearable, and the results are worth it.

There are certain epilators that indicate “dry” while some indicates “wet” or both. This only refers to the environment you can use the epilator within. When it doesn’t indicate anything, we automatically assume that it is a “dry” only epilator. This means that you can’t get it wet (no really, don’t get it wet!). This may cause your epilator to breakdown and stop functioning altogether, or worse. It also means that the area where you’ll use the epilator should be dry. The advantage of dry epilators relies on the function. Dry epilation tend to pull out hair effectively as it doesn’t stick that much to your skin.

There are certain epilators that has the best of both worlds. You can use it dry, or you can use it wet. This means you can groom even while taking a shower, relaxing in the tub, or just doing it in the sink. Having the option to use the product underwater has a lot to do with your pain tolerance. If you find epilating really painful, you should consider applying warm water to the area before you do it. The warm water will help regulate more blood in the area and will keep it moist to prevent irritation.

Quick Review: Braun SE7681 Silk-Epil Wet and Dry

If you’re looking to buy an epilator that functions in both dry and wet environment, the Braun SE7681 Wet and Dry Epilator may well be your best bet. Manufactured by one of the leading brands in hair grooming, the functionality is top of the line. With built-in 40 close-grip tweezers, a lot of its users’ reviews are statements of how awesome this little monster is. Can remove hair even as fine as sand (0.5mm) and the area stays smooth for up to 4 weeks, impressive by anybody’s standards. Battery-operated, so great for taking away with you if needs be, and can last for up to 40 minutes of continuous epilating session. Though a little pricey, this may be your go-to epilator with its awesome features and versatility.

Surely, Braun has made a winning move with this epilator. It is by far the most sought after epilator in the market nowadays and a lot of women just love it. Functionality wise, I think it’s the best. Although the price is somewhat heavy, considering the previous version is of the same quality. The add-ons are pretty generic and that’s what made the price higher than the previous release.

A Cheaper Alternative…

Remington EP7030

Just a quick note on this model from Remington, too. Our budgets don’t all extend to enough to buy the Braun model already discussed, but this offers a great alternative for almost half the price. It isn’t quite up to the standard of the Braun, but a flexible head to account for the shape and contour of your body, a detail light to help you finding even really tiny, hard to reach hairs, and 40 tweezers claiming to create up to 6 weeks of smooth skin, this option certainly shouldn’t be disregarded.

The epilator featured is a winner, because it has excellent functionality, flexibility (since you can use it almost anywhere). Being able to epilate under running water significantly reduces pain and it’s good especially for people who have low pain tolerance.

The Best, most Painless Epilators

braun painless epilatorsEpilators were designed to solve the problem of excess Hair Growth which makes people both male and female feel low on confidence. So now with the introduction of epilators, one can epilate and remove their thick and excessive hair at home in virtually no time which provide lasting smoothness to their skin up to 4 weeks and also have long term effects as the re-growth of the hair becomes softer and finer after each session. Unfortunately, as with many things in life, Epilators are definitely a case of ‘no pain no gain’ and can cause some discomfort, which is why today we’re looking at the most painless models you can get. Often the more tweezers it has (usually between 30 and 100), and the quicker the epilator is designed to work, the better it is at keeping the painful process down.

Some of the best epilators for painless or less painful epilation are as follows:

Emjoi AP-18 Emagine Dual Opposed 72 Tweezers Head Epilator:

This epilator has 72 tweezers heads, which aid the removal of stubborn and coarse hair quickly and almost completely painlessly. It also has the tag of being the first Epilator on the market to offer Silver Ion Technology and Staggered heads. According to market research, it works brilliantly on the thick hair and continually makes the hair thinner and softer. Women say that it is easier to use and it is also less painful. The Emjoi Ap-18, in spite of not being a wet and dry model, is definitely one of the less painful models.

Braun SE3170 Silk-épil 3 Soft Perfection Epilator

Silk-épil Soft Perfection provides a soft and gentle approach to this method of removing hair. It features a  four-way intelligent pain softener to help with the sometimes painful process of epilation. Its two rollers have tiny nodes and are designed to relax, almost numb the sensitive areas of skin in order to prevent pain while the Silk Epil plucks out your hairs, even those as short as 0.5 millimeters, keeping your skin smooth for roughly a month after use. This model comes with my top recommendation, it is gentle and reduces the pain and discomfort that some other epilators, and definitely other methods of hair-removal (such as waxing, ouch!) cause.

Braun 5270 X’elle Body System Epilator:

The modern woman is normally extremely busy! So Braun created this model, the Silk-epil X’elle – a 40-tweezer Epilator that removes even those stubborn, darker and more coarse hair and can provide smooth, hair free skin for many weeks. It includes an impressive 40 tweezers on one rotating drum.

The X’elle has impressively designed active massage rollers that stimulate your skin whilst the hair is being plucked to intelligently and effectively reduce any chance of a painful, uncomfortable experience.

Remington Smooth & Silky Epilator:

The epilator prides itself on having the World’s only “moisturizing comfort technology”  it allows the tweezers to remove each hair whilst moisturizing which really aids any pain and provides a lot of relief, you wont even know you’re using it half of the time. Two different settings allow the removing of either thick or thinner hairs. The second, precision head is designed for use on the face and other more detailed areas.

Silk-épil 7 Dual Epilator

Braun epilators are generally considered a lot less painful than most of the other brands. Their amazing Silk épil 7 is a Dual epilator with Venus technology to deal with even your thickest hair. The epilator removes straight from its root and integrated blades then deal with any leftover hairs which seem to refuse to go away (trust me, it happens). Braun Silk-épil 7 dual is even suitable for being used under water in the shower or bath in order to fit easily into your beauty regime. It removes your hair effectively without causing much pain at all.

There is always an element of pain in this process, it is unfortunately the price we pay for smooth skin, but the process is far more effective than many others and especially with the models above, certainly doesn’t have to be agonizing.
