For hygienic reasons, do not share this appliance with other people. This appliance is provided with a special cord set with an integrated Safety Extra Low Voltage power supply. Do not exchange or manipulate any part of it. Otherwise there is risk of electric shock. This appliance is suitable for use in a bath or shower. For safety reasons, it can only be operated cordlessly. This appliance is not intended for use by children or persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, unless they are given supervision by a person responsible for their safety. In general, we recommend that you keep the appliance out of reach of children. When switched on, the appliance must never come in contact with the hair on your head, eyelashes, ribbons, etc. to prevent any danger of injury as well as to prevent blockage or damage to the appliance. Never use the epilation head without cap. General information on epilation: All methods of hair removal at the root can lead to in-growing hair and irritation (e.g. itching, discomfort and reddening of the skin) depending on the condition of the skin and hair. This is a normal reaction and should quickly disappear, but may be stronger when you are removing hair at the root for the first few times or if you have sensitive skin. If, after 36 hours, the skin still shows irritation, we recommend that you contact your physician. In general, the skin reaction and the sensation of pain tend to diminish considerably with the repeated use of Silk�epil. In some cases inflammation of the skin could occur when bacteria penetrate the skin (e.g. when sliding the appliance over the skin). Thorough cleaning of the epilation head before each use will minimize the risk of infection. If you have any doubts about using this appliance, please consult your physician. In the following cases, this appliance should only be used after prior consultation with a physician: Eczema, wounds, inflamed skin reactions such as folliculitis (purulent hair follicles), and varicose veins, around moles, reduced immunity of the skin (e.g. diabetes mellitus, during pregnancy, Raynaud’s disease, haemophilia, candida, or immune deficiency.)
Comments about Braun Silk-epil 3 Epilator, Model l 3170, Purple, 1 ea:
This is a good epilator. It does take several passes to get all of the hair but the light is very useful in showing you where even the finest hairs are. This is a very gentle epilator that definitely produced less discomfort than others I have used in the past. If you're new to epilators, know that the first time is rough but it gets much easier after that.

Comments about Braun Silk-epil 3 Epilator, Model l 3170, Purple, 1 ea:
This is a good device. It is my third epilator, and I used to have some of the fancier ones. Trust me, they are not worth double the price. It would be nice if this one could be used cordless or had the wet/dry feature, but to me it's not a big deal. It gets the job done and that's all I care about. It comes in a nice, feminine color and shape. The first few times it's gonna hurt, but the pain subsides and you're left with smooth skin. Just watch out for ingrown hairs, make sure to exfoliate and moisturize really good. Other than that, it's a good value!
My Beauty Routine Takes:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
1.) Turning on: Press one of the lock keys and turn the switch clockwise to select your preferred speed setting: �I� = extra gentle or �II� = extra efficient. The �smartlight� comes on instantly and shines as long as the appliance is switched on. It reproduces an almost daylight condition, thus revealing even the finest hair and giving you a better control for improved epilation efficiency. 2.) How to guide the appliance: Always stretch your skin when epilating. Always make sure that the epilation area between the massaging rollers is in contact with your skin. The pivoting caps automatically adapt to the contour of your skin. Guide the appliance in a slow, continuous movement without pressure against the hair growth, in the direction of the switch. As hair can grow in different directions, it may also be helpful to guide the appliance in different directions to achieve optimum results. The pulsating movement of the massaging rollers stimulate and relax the skin for a gentler epilation. If you are used to the sensation of epilation and prefer a faster way of removing hair, attach the EfficiencyPro cap replacing the massage system. 3.) Leg epilation: Epilate your legs from the lower leg in an upward direction. When epilating behind the knee, keep the leg stretched out straight. 4.) Underarm and bikini line epilation: For this specific application, the underarm cap has been developed as an optional attachment to be placed on the epilation head. Please be aware that especially at the beginning, these areas are particularly sensitive to pain. Therefore, we recommend that you select speed setting �I� for the first few epilation processes. With repeated usage the pain sensation will diminish. For more comfort, ensure that the hair is at the optimum length of 2–5 mm. Before epilating, thoroughly clean the respective area to remove residues (like deodorant). Then carefully dab dry with a towel. When epilating the underarm, keep your arm raised up so that the skin is stretched and guide the appliance in different directions. As skin may be more sensitive directly after epilation, avoid using irritating substances such as deodorants with alcohol.
