I purchased this after some extensive research comparing it to other Braun models and competitors products. I am confident that I made the right choice! I have had it now for over 3 years and it is still working like the day I first got it. One thing that really attracted me to this specific model was the "SmartLight". It is really helpful for illuminating any errant hairs you may have missed!
I found the initial few uses to be quite painful (6 out of 10 maybe?) and I had to take small breaks to finish my legs, however I find it easily tolerable now (2 out of 10) and can finish both legs quickly with no breaks. I use it about twice a month to epilate my legs and armpits (which isn't as painful as you might think!) and it works incredibly well. I have also noticed a significant decrease in the thickness and overall amount of hairs on my legs and pits. I barely have anything sprouting from my underarms anymore!
If you're curious about epilating or wanting to upgrade, this is the model to get!
I never used an epilator before trying out the Braun Braun Silk-epil Xpressive (7281 Wet & Dry Body System) and I anticipated the worse. When I turned it on, the 'wheels' starting spinning so quickly it was all a blur and it produced a really loud screeching noise! I decided to just go for it and it really wasn't that bad! I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't hurt much and just felt like little pricks. I think this had to do with the Massaging Cap which according to Braun, "stimulates the skin before and soothe it after hair removal to clearly reduce the pain sensation" (and of course because I expected it to be really, really painful).
Some of my favourite features:
1. The pivoting head which follows the contours of the body making the whole hair removal process easy.
2. I liked that the epilator was cordless so I can bring and use it anywhere. This is especially great for vacations-- just have it fully charged and you're good to go!
3. The Wet & Dry Hairlift System is a new innovation in epilating because it will remove even the short, fine hairs lying flat against skin. Since this epilator is waterproof, I can use it in the shower and really clean it out after I'm done.
4. The SmartLight feature is like a really bright mini flashlight that guides the epilator. It's incredibly useful because it reveals every single hair!
An Efficiency Cap is also included which allows me to epilate a larger area at one time. This cap doesn't have the massaging function so it's a bit more painful in comparison.
Another great bonus is the shaver head and trimmer cap can be attached to the body of the epilator which is good for bikini and long-hair trimming.
On a full charge (about 60 minutes), I get 40 minutes of usage. Also included with the epilator are Olay Pre-Epilation Wipes, charger, cleaning brush, and carrying pouch.
Overall, I found the handle to be very comfortable and easy to hold. I also think it's really cute especially the white plastic which has shimmer and glitter in it. I'm impressed that epilating is so easy and not at all as painful as I've heard, especially once you get used to it and your follicles are weakened. It lasts much longer that shaving (but just as easy to do) and isn't as messy as waxing. I really like that with epilating, I see finer hair regrowth and less hair overtime. I would recommend this to anyone new to epilating and even those who are already fans of the epilator. It's a bit expensive but it's a great investment and completely worth it! The Braun Silk-epil Xpressive has lots of great new features you have to try out and it's not painful to use!
I received a sample of the Braun Silk-epil Xpressive from the brand for testing.
