I owned one of these back in the 1990's and these products have sure come a LONG way!! I was expecting to be tortured again as I felt each hair being pulled out. That did not happen. I love the light on it as it helps my middle aged eyes see any hairs that I might have missed. It is just a bit uncomfortable (to be expected as it is ripping your hair out at the root) but definitely not painful at all. I have not shaved my legs since buying this a few months back and after using this weekly for a few months my legs are much, much smoother. It can be used wet/dry but I have not tried it the shower yet. I also have not tried the attachments for face and underarms yet. One note - the slow setting on this is actually pretty fast and the fast setting is turbo mode!
I had to replace my old epilator due to an unfortunate and unexpected trip down the hardwood stairs. She didn't quite work the same after that. But I replaced her with the Braun Silk Epil 7 Expressive Pro and I love it!
Best feature? CORDLESS!! Next best feature? Can be used in the SHOWER!! The list goes on and on. It still removes most of the hair on my legs and underarms (Yes, it hurts, but it's worth the few minutes of pain) very very well. All that is left are a few short, hard-to-see hairs on my legs and they stay like that forever!!! Ok, well, not forever, but for a lot longer than shaving!
Did I mention it's CORDLESS?? So awesome! I am planning to take it with me to Spain fully charged so I can use it while I'm there and not have to worry about international voltage converters.
It also has a cool pivoting head to move over knees and curves. It has a shaver attachment and a bunch of caps for different areas. Overall GREAT improvement over my old epilator! Thumbs way up!
