Braun has since established a household name in terms of the products they use, but I can personally believe that they have hiked up their quality when they introduced the Braun Silk Epil 7 epilator, the upgraded epilator to the Braun Silk Epil 3. With 40 close grip tweezers working in sync, this epilator can remove even the finest of hairs anywhere on your body. While it is particularly designed for wet and lathery shaving for a smoother experience, you can also use it for dry epilation for faster results and when you are not at home to lather up before you shave.
Not only does it epilate deeply – it also shaves fully. It is ever so effective so as to remove even the finest of hairs. This can assure you of up to four weeks smoothness on your skin surfaces. This is a nice feat, especially if you compare it with the effects you can get from waxing hair, or even from shaving using a disposable blade. Even the whole epilation process is made easier with the help of the Smartlight technology that is original although not exclusive with this model from Braun. What the light does is that it helps you locate hair should you miss, assuring you of a total smooth experience every time you epilate, using this efficient little gadget. I particularly like how the model is cordless, since I travel a lot this fits in my suitcase without taking up much space. The repercussions of getting a wired gadget, such as an epilator would be that you need to find a socket for you to be able to use it, and those are not always available especially when you are abroad. Cordless ones are much more convenient, since it is almost impossible to be stuck in a place that doesn’t have a store that sells batteries, or you can just bring a spare set of rechargeable AA batteries.
As far as attachments go, however, here are the ones that you can get when you purchase this Braun Silk Epil 7 Wet and Dry Epilator: shaver head, trimmer cap, efficiency cap, sensitive area cap, and a facial cap. The general function of these attachments is to provide efficiency in epilating various parts of the body. My personal favourite is the sensitive area cap, since it is ideal for bikini epilation. With other epilators I tried, I had to be very careful not to tear the skin since they can really be painful, but it is nice to know that this epilator actually inflicts less pain, I would say pain levels can hardly be felt.
Another fan favorite for me would be the efficiency cap, since it actually assures that you get as much hair as you can with every swipe you make with this epilator. A feature that would also compel you to like this model is its speed specialization options. There are two speeds available, one for when you want get more in control of the epilation process, and the other when you are in a rush and are anyway working with a flat skin area, so you don’t have to worry about any skin that might tear or bruise.
As for the less pain that has been mentioned earlier, it is because Braun has developed a technology that lifts up the hair that is flat on the skin and then guides them to the tweezers ever so gently, and thus minimizing the hard pulling sensation that is quite common with other epilators out there. It stimulates the skin to minimize pain, and even introduces a technology that soothes the plucking sensation, providing a massage-like feeling when you are in the process of wet epilation, similar feature to the Panasonic Wet Dry Epilator.
Before, I was apprehensive about using an electric epilator since I thought it may have been hard to maneuver around the corners and contours of the body, but boy was I wrong! The Braun Silk Epil 7 is the first one I actually used that I loved, probably because of its pivoting head, it gets hair at every corner of your body. Since the epilator can incline 15 degrees forward and back, it can actually adapt to provide careful epilation with the otherwise problematic nooks of the body like the underarms and the bikini area.
For someone impatient about a lot of things like myself, I like how fast this gadget recharges when it has already drained battery. See, for a single charge, the device can already last for up to forty minutes, which is just enough for one session of full body epilation. Two thumbs up for the Braun Silk Epil 7! Definitely, this is the best one so far that Braun has ever come up with. Try it out and see for yourself!
