Looking for the perfect gift? Recognized as Braun's most efficient epilator, Braun Silk-epil 7 Wet & Dry epilator is most efficient on short hairs and provides a smooth, virtually painless epilation experience with repeated use. The epilator is cordless and able to be used wet or dry. Includes a free bikini trimmer for gentle hair removal without waxing.
This is the third Braun epilator I have purchased within fifteen years. Although they are not perfect, and can become clogged inside with accumulated hairs, it is much more satisfactory than either shaving (every day!) or using hair removal creme. With epilation, the hairs grow back in with a softer end than using the other methods. I like this third model because it gives me the freedom to use without having it plugged in; hopefully the charge will always remain for 35 minutes because it takes me that long to use it. I highly recommend it for someone who has a significant amount of body hair which is on the thicker/darker side.
I bought a Braun Silk Epil 7 with 8 extras, and I am in love with it. I have used almost all of the extras that were provided with it. However, I would love if some tips could be given about keeping the epilator and shaver/ trimmer head clean.
I am a 48 yo male and have been using a different model epilator on my private areas and backside for about the last year. That broke down and I replaced with this one. Have only used it once, but early returns are very encouraging. The results appear to be far superior. It does a much better job of gripping and removing the hair. My wife was impressed with the early results. Some pain, but it is manageable, for me anyway. The trimmer head attachment is also very nice as I like to keep a patch of closely trimmed hair above you know where, and it is nice to be able to use the same device for both. The length is perfect for that purpose, as well as for my armpits. Pulling the skin taught is very important however. This thing will grab it and did draw some blood, but its a surface scratch that will heal quickly. Take your time and be careful, Don't necessarily try to get completely bare in one application, and the results will be great. The head attachments and nice, and do seem to serve appropriate function, especially for the sensitive areas I am working with. The bikini trimmer they include seams pretty useless.
i ordered silk epil 7 561 with 6 attachments... primarily because it could be used while charging as well....because sometimes we just don't have the time to wait for the epilator to charge...what i got was same silk epil 7 561 but with +8 attachments...it can't be used while charging....disappointed

It may be helpful to know that our Series 7 7-561 Epilator is designed with cordless shaving only and will not work while plugged in. To learn more about our epilators, be sure to visit, https://us.braun.com/en-us/female-hair-removal/electric-epilators/electric-epilators-overview or feel free to give us a call at (800) 272-8611.
It's a good product overall, but I was not impressed with how it works on the bikini area. If you want to remove more than just the bikini line, then this is not the product to use. I read so many reviews of all the different epilator's out there, and settled on this one. I guess the search will have to continue, or I'll go back to waxing.

We're sorry to hear that you didn't get the results you expected, Jenny. We're honored that you did give our Braun Silk-epil 7-561 a try. Epilation is easier and works best when the hair is 2-5mm long. Be sure your hair is free of any cream and oil, by showering or bathing before. This makes the hair easier to remove. Your skin needs to be dry before epilating unless you are using a Silk-epil Wet & Dry model which can be used on wet skin. Don't forget to epilate slowly. It should take approximately 15 minutes to do each section, and when doing sensitive areas be sure you're using the correct head. Move the epilator in several directions. Depending on the area you’re epilating, hair grows in different directions and you should move the epilator accordingly. We'd love to help you find the perfect product for your needs, please give us a call at (800) 272-8611.
I had my second Silk Epi on vacation and it got caught in material and broke it. My fault. I bought the 7 because it was the only one available locally. It is so much faster than my previous one and much to my surprise, the shaver/trimmer attachment from my old Epi works with my new one! I was so happy because I use that a lot too. I like that Braun have not changed the design. I have always loved the built in light. Great product!
After over a decade of dealing with thick, dark hair on my face, I finally found the perfect product in this epilator. I actually cried after I first used it a couple of days ago because it really removed all of the hair. No more tweezing for an hour and getting hand cramps, no more threading that didn't always get all the hairs, no more using a mustache trimmer to lessen the look of the hair and no more razor blades to my face! I have seriously used everything short of expensive laser treatments. I would recommend this product to everyone! I am so glad to have found this product after so long. This was my last attempt at hair removal, after this, I was going to give up and just shave it like I used to. Thank you sooo much, Braun!!! I finally look like a woman again!
