The Braun Silk-Epil 7681 epilator – a wet and dry battery operated model from Braun is one of the most popular epilators. This is very well suited for removing low to moderate amounts of hair. Not for people with very thick, coarse hair.
Equipped with 40 close grip tweezers designed to remove even the shortest of hairs, the Braun 7681 is also equipped with a smartlight and comes with five attachments – a shaver head, a efficiency cap, a sensitive area cap, a trimmer and a facial cap. Each is designed for a different body part. This epilator even removes hair that are too short for waxing.
Being a battery operated, wet and dry model this can be used in the shower or bath – which is a good feature to have in a epilator because epilating while taking a warm shower is one of the best methods to make the process more pleasant.
The operating voltage range of 100V to 240V means you can use it just about anywhere on the planet. Just plug it in, charge the battery and start using it without worrying about whether you will need to use a adapter. This makes it ideally suited for traveling.
The pre-epilation wipes – included in the pack – soften the hair, make the hair stand up so that they are not flat. That way, it is a lot easier for the tweezers to grab the hair and pull them out, making epilation a lot less painful. Using this makes it more likely that hair will be pulled out from the root and not just break off. They do not have any anaesthetic effect and do not numb or deaden the skin to pain. They smell good and give you that fresh, clean, moisturised and smooth feeling after epilation. Being free of alcohol, it isn’t likely these will irritate your skin. If you ever need to epilate, but for some reason do not have the time for a quick shower, then these could just save the day for you.
Getting those flat lying hairs removed by epilators are one of the most common issues women have to deal with. Even after several passes, it can be hard to get rid of them. So in addition to the help you get from the wipes, this model also has SoftLift tips to lift up flat hairs and guide them to the tweezers – which then pull them out.
The smartlight illuminates fine hair, making it a breeze to locate them and get rid of them.
And with two speed settings – the lower for gentler hair removal and the higher for high efficiency, the process only gets a lot easier. If you find the device is missing some hairs, change the speed setting and you should be able to get them as well.
What’s more – the high frequency massage feature serves to make the epilation process a lot more comfortable as it stimulates and soothes the skin.
Perhaps the best thing about this model is that in addition to all of these features, this is also a wet and dry epilator. So you can use it while in the shower, reducing discomfort to a bare minimum. Warm water has been shown to relax and soothe the skin, improving micro circulation, making your skin a lot less sensitive to pain. Which is why you will experience a lot less discomfort when you are epilating while taking a warm shower.Pros:
Wet and dry epilator: You can use it in the shower for a less painful experience.
Dual speed: Two speed setting should be sufficient for most people, but not including people with really thick, coarse hair.
Operating voltage range 110V to 240V : Make it so very convenient to use this just about any place you want to. You can go to any continent and plug it in without worrying about adapters.
Attachments: Comes with 5 attachments, each for a different area of your body.
Pre epilation wipes: Make hair softer, lifts flat lying hairs – making it easier for the tweezers to get them.
Smartlight: Illuminates even fine hair, making it less likely that you may miss them.
Pivoting head: Makes it easier to maneuver over the natural contours of the body.
Massage feature: Stimulates the skin, making the process a lot less painful.Cons:
Battery operated: Being battery operated, this may lack the power required to remove coarse, thick hair. And when you require to epilate large areas with relatively more hair – like the legs, it may not be possible to complete the job on a single charge.
40 tweezers : Good enough for most people, but if you have thicker, coarser hair 40 tweezers may not be sufficient. You would need a model with perhaps 72 tweezers.Verdict :
This is perhaps the best epilators suitable for most people. Just like it isn’t possible to make a pair of gloves that fit everyone, it’s also impossible to design one epilator that’s suitable for everyone. This one has a host of great features and chances are it’s perfect for you.
