  1. I have never used an epilator before but when I started using Braun Silk-epil 7, I can say that it really works out great. The pain I experienced using this product is just like rapidfire pinpricks even without me using the Olay wipes that came in the box. I can say that the vibrating massage cap is really helpful in making the epilation more comfortable. The only drawback I found about this product is that it buzzes too loud. You know you can’t use this device if someone in the same room is sleeping. Other than this, I find this epilator really fantastic.

  2. This one is indeed a wonderful epilator. It works faster and picks more hair as compared to the Emjoi epilator I was using before. I also love that this product is very easy to clean. Since it is waterproof, you can easily run water on it for cleaning purposes. You will be surprised as well to how much hair this epilator picks up once you start cleaning it after use.
