Braun Silk-Epil7681 Review

Braun SE7681 Silk- EpilFeatures:

Number of tweezers: 40

Corded / Cordless : Cordless, rechargeable battery included.

Speed settings : Two

Attachments: 5 shaver head, efficiency cap, trimmer cap,  facial cap, sensitive area cap.

Voltage: 110V to 240V.

Additional features: Wet and dry; travel case included;  Close grip tweezers to grasp very short hair up to 0.5 millimeter long.
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.

Braun Silk Epil 9 Review

Braun Epil 9 Series is one of the best epilator series released by Braun as I was pretty much done expecting something different from Braun. Most of the customers were done thinking Braun would introduce something this revolutionary. So, among all the monotonous model, Braun thought of coming up with Braun Silk Epil 9 series which has blown up minds because of its awesome performance.

It completely overtakes all the other models and when standing next to epilators from Philips, Emjoi and Panasonic. This model completely captivated all the attention.

Let me give you overview of this first.

You must not consider buying it if you already have Braun 7 because it would not provide you the excitement. Overall it’s a great epilator, it has everything one would expect from a valuable epilator. It is also reasonable and is totally worth the money. It is also one of the latest epilators so you might just get it because it is classy too.

Now the specification of Braun Epil Silk 9.

  1. Design

As already said it is one of the coolest epilators till date. When I first had the chance to look at the Silk Epil 7681, the complete white with grey touches, I felt that it is the best one until now. But, now after Braun Epil Silk I can surely say that it can’t get any prettier.

The head of this epilator is 40% wider and it induces the smart performance along with adding the classy look to this epilator. The colours are also very eye captivating and they make it perfect epilator to stand out among crowd. Some epilators have colours like bright pink and weird blues which make them look totally bad.

It is also designed to come within the grip of your hand so it is very easy to hold. Whatever you are doing like removing hair from face, legs, private areas or underarms. It is very lightweight and fits right in to the palm of your hand, making the whole process very easy.

  1. Tweezers

Tweezers in this model are very different so if a comparison to be made with Silk Epil 7, I’d say that tweezers are best in Epil 9.

The new Epil models by Braun are very outstanding as they have 40% wider heads to cover more area of skin and rapidly move forward with epilation process. It is a very practical model by Braun. The wider head doesn’t mean that the number of tweezers are more on Epil 9 than Epil 7 but it generally means that you’ll get more done in little time. The big difference is that tweezers are bigger and have different shape and are mounted differently as well.

However, when it comes to number of tweezers I was quite confused because it is hard to identify the original number but after a lot of consideration I have discovered that there are 40+ tweezers on Epil 9.

The number of tweezers are more than 40 and rather than the close grip technology it has micro grip technology which are actually closely related to each other and serve with same purpose as they remove hair as short as 0.5mm.

It is capable of removing hair as tiny as upper lips and even the coarse ones. However, one should not get hopes up because some hair will still be left no matter what you buy. There are always some short hair that can’t be removed by even Silk Epil 9. But, don’t be upset because your 97% of hair are still going to be removed whether thin or coarse.


There are a lot of models of Silk Epil 9, so the accessories you are going to get are pretty much dependent on what model you buy. The models have however same number of tweezers and same functions, it’s just the accessories which give variance in prices.

The common accessories however are

  • Massage system

Which you can surely remove if you want ti and you can use the epilator without it or without the other caps. The tweezers will directly touch your skin which can be painful so if you have sensitive skin make sure you use caps.

  • skin contact cap

This cap is the one that lets the tweezers come in direct contact with the skin which means a little more pain but yeah it’s great as well.

  • Pivoting cap
  • Soft lift tips

It is for lifting flat-lying hairs, it is amazing that it can do what most epilators can’t do in 2-3 passes.

  • built-in light
  • washable head
  • 2 speeds.


Pros of Braun Silk Epil 9

  • It can be used in both wet and dry conditions
  • 40+tweezers
  • Amazing accessories
  • Large head


  • You can’t use it while charging
  • It is one of the expensive epilators
