Home Hair Removal: Bruan Epilation

Updated on March 26, 2013

Review of Bruan Epilator Silk-epil 7

Epilation method of hair removal is definitely a great choice if you can bare with a little bit of pain. It’s not as messy as waxing, cheaper then laser hair removal, and will keep your hair thin unlike shaving. Bruan Epilator uses close up technology to tweeze even the closest, shortest, finest hair off. With 40 tweezers rotating all you have to do is charge and run the epilator up your hair/leg and you will see instant results.

There are four different epilators you can choose from braun which include: Silk-épil 3, Silk-épil 5 Young Beauty, Silk-épil 5, and Silk-épil 7. Each one of these epilators have their pros and cons.

For all the epilators, not going to lie, it is painful and it is very loud. But if you think about it, it is plucking each hair out of your body but just at a very fast pace of course it is going to hurt! And yes it is very loud so I would not recommend using the epilator at night when everyone is sleeping. Also it will cause ingrown hairs in some places, but that may vary between different people.

But now looking on the bright side, Braun’s claim to using close up technology really is true; you can remove the finest tiniest hair so you don’t have to wait for the hair to grow out. Also, you don’t get stubbles like when you shave. There are two different speeds on the epilator so you can choose how fast you want the tweezers to go, so for your face, underarm and bikini area you might want to use a lower speed. Or as you get use to the epilator you may want to up the speed up the process. Another thing is that the Braun epilator is always flexuating in prices so if you are patient then you can get a really good deal on it!

Now if the Braun epilator isn’t for you, Braun has a 60 day money back guarantee though you do have to pay for shipping and handling to ship it back and it does take 4-5 weeks before you get a cheque in the mail for your money back. Along with the money back guarantee Braun also has a one year warranty.

Now that the good and bad are layed out on the table, I personally have the Silk-epil 7 epilator from braun and I do love it. It is painful but it does get better over time, and the noise I do not mind since it takes my less then 10 minutes to do my legs and arms and maybe extra five minutes if I want to underarm or bikini area. As well I do not use it every day so it doesn’t bother me. My hair has gotten a lot finner and grows in much slower. I did however get a few ingrown hairs when I first started using it but my skin is very sensitive. Overall, I love my epilator and I think it is a good investment because laser probably the next best thing and that costs quit a bit of money.
