    I can't remember when I bought the epilator by Emjoi Gold but it's been a few years. It was expensive & the 1st time I'd ever used one. It HURT!! I don't know why I didn't figure that out ahead of time. It also just broke the hairs, needed several passes, & still missed a lot due to only having 5 tweezer-things.Now I only went in to all that so the level of awesomeness could be fully appreciated. The 7681 came with a great charge. (I usually drain the battery THEN charge all my electronics.) The tweezers missed very little on the FIRST pass! It was so smoothly done I barely felt anything. At first I thought it just spinning uselessly until I paused to clean the head. I'm so impressed! I also do the bikini area. Of course there's some pain, but compared to the old one I had? It was so negligible. I covered underarm, legs, & bikini area in about 30 min. It used to take hours b/c I'd have to stop & recoup from the pain. It's cute, compact, & very user friendly. The on/off switch is easy to reach with either hand. The heads are easy to change out & it's super easy to brush off. I'm so glad I bought this. I'll never go back to shaving. Wasn't used in the shower or with the Olay wipes. Thought I'd test it plain. For [$], (got it on sale)this was even cheaper than the EG I'd previously bought. I'm actually going to buy for a birthday present for my friend!

    It is a good product if you have $100 to waste every year or so. I bought mine on 6/2012 and it is 3/2013 and it just broke down, it won't work. While a previous version I had lasted me over 3 years.

      Comments about Braun Silk-epil 7681 Wet & Dry Epilator, Silver, 1 ea:

      I've only used this dry/not in the shower. It definately hurts the first few times in each new area, but not as bad as getting a tattoo, and if you let yourself get used to the pain, its not so bad after a few uses.

      I found that when going over a new area, it works best if you shave and then wait til you have a few days worth of stubble before epillating an entire area, then maintaining the area with some quick epillation (1-2 min for arm pits & legs) for new strays every other day or so.

      My legs and arm pits were a little red (at the pores) and tender (a few pores in my armpit even bled when the hair was pulled out) when i first epillated them, but only the first time. i've had no redness or irritation after that, and the pain is negligible when you're in the maintainance phase and just dealing with strays.

      i exfoliate in the shower to avoid ingrown hairs, epillate strays after the shower, then moisturize so that i dont get lotion in the epillator.

      I tried to epillate my bikini zone too, but it hurt more than my armpits, so it wasn't worth it down there.

      Prior to this, i'd literally shave my legs once every 3 months (my leg hair would get almost as long as my fiance's). However, this epillator has changed everything. my legs and armpits have been smooth for almost two weeks now :)

          This product far exceeded my expectations! I was hesitant to spend that much money on something that wasn't garunteed to do the job, but it was worth every penny. So far I have used it on my face, underarms, legs, bikini, stomach…. Anywhere I could find even the finest of hairs to try the product on. Success! It is not painless, but the dscomfort is tolerable (underarms are the worst). The treated areas got red and a little swollen, but within an hour or so my skin was smooth and irritation free.

          Comments about Braun Silk-epil 7681 Wet & Dry Epilator, Silver, 1 ea:

          I have started using an epilator instead of a razor for manscaping duty because of the longer lasting effects. This epilator works well dry, but does not work particularly well in the shower or bath.

          As with other epilators I have used in the past, it leaves me with some red bumps, but nothing worse than shaving usually gets me. They go away gradually over the course of a day or so (quicker if I have time to dust up with gold bond).

          The longer delay between uses of the epilator versus a razor allows that irritation to subside well before I need to use it again, which is nice.

          Another item of note, I suppose, is that some hairs do not always get pulled out by the root, and instead break off at or near skin level. This is annoying and everything, but I find if I go back over the area after 2-3 days, I can usually get those hairs removed pretty well, and with little to no irritation.

          The only reason I don't give this five stars is because of its performance in water. It seems to me that a wet/dry product should actually function in the water, while this seems more to be merely 'water safe'

            Love this product!!! After using the "old fasioned" epilator and waxing for a bit, I was sceptical to purchase it. But it makes grooming soooo music easier!!! and fast too!!! And it's cordless and you can use it wet and dry. What more would you want? Will definitely buy again.

              I was scared but excited to try this product. I heard good things so when it arrived(very quickly) I rushed to used it on my legs. Ouch! I should have soaked in hot tub to let my pores open. In any case, it was worth the pain! I have thick, corse hair that grows very quickly. I only did my legs and shaved other areas, the next day my legs were so smooth vs the stubble I had in other areas I shaved. I hate the feeling of stubble and no longer have it where I used this product. My hair grows back soft and thin, I often forget to do touch ups. I love the results so much I've done other areas. I haven't used it in the bath and don't think I will. After the initial hair removal of an area, it doesn't hurt and only takes a few mins.
              I waited a few months of owning it to give the most honest review, and would recommend it.

              In Need of Improvement but gets the job done. This epilator was able to get the job done but it did so with much needed patience.

              Pros:

              The light is great for catching sight of any missed hairs.

              Accessories are plentiful and very useful.

              Wireless capability is great! From traveling to just being able to move around.

              Easy clean up and attached cleaning brush is great for that.

              Buttons are perfect for use, you wont accidently turn it off while epilating.

              Cons:

              Very noisy.

              Number of tweezer heads should be increased... Takes forever to finish areas. Other epilatitors within the same price range do a faster job.

              Pricey for so little tweezer heads.

              Ok, when I was shopping for this I didn't find any reviews from men, so here's one from me. I am not ashamed to admit that I dislike looking like an ape and prefer the groomed look. From the extensive research on various epilator reviews I decided this one would be the best performer with the most versatility. I was probably right. My hair is undoubtedly much more course then the average woman's but this device works like a charm. It does sting a little bit when in use, but unless you're a complete wimp it's nothing major. It doesn't get every hair with each pass, but after a few passes it gets most/all of them. I use it on my chest, arms, and legs. It works great but I get lots of ingrown hairs on my chest after use. I used it on my facial hair once. That hurt more than I can describe. I did my entire beard/mustache area and although it did leave a smoother finish for longer, I got some ingrowns and it only lasted a couple of days longer than shaving so wasn't worth the pain. If you want long-term hair removal, I'd use the money for a couple of professional electrolysis/laser treatments. However, for what it does this is a decent product.

                I have used it only for dry epilation. on legs it is very easy, as i have been epilating my legs for 10+ years and i have used waxing too. Got this epilator to do underarms as waxing there at home is not that easy, takes time. tried to epilate underarm years ago and was to painful, thought now with new technology this could change and after waxing for 5 years. well, It is painful, the additional cover with smaller open area is helping a lot. noticed it is better to epilate often small hears than wait for all to grow out, gets very painful.

                Braun Silk-epil Wet & Dry Epilator

                 – Soft, smooth, and hair-free skin is achievable thanks to the innovative Silk-epil Wet & Dry Epilator from Braun. Advanced technology and a user-friendly design make this epilator a highly effective product. Enjoy the benefits of thorough hair removal, all from the comfort of your own home, with this highly effective product.

                Features



                Using Braun's close-grip technology, this tool features 40 tweezers for thorough hair removal. These tweezers are engineered at an optimal angle to grip hair, including hairs that are extremely short (0.5 mm). This epilator can be used wet or dry. Epilation in warm water, such as during your bath or shower, can boost your circulation and make the hair-removal process comfortable and non-irritating.

                This product also features a high-frequency massage system, which stimulates your skin and eliminates any discomfort associated with the hair removal. The massage boosts your skin's comfort as the hair is gently eliminated. This epilator also has a pivoting head, capable of moving 15 degrees forward and backward. This feature allows the product to adapt to your natural body contours, allowing it to thoroughly remove hair in even those hard-to-reach places.

                Additional features make this epilator highly effective. It uses SoftLift Tips, which lift up those hard-to-eliminate, flat-lying hairs so that the tweezers can easily remove them. It also features a SmartLight, which makes it easy to see all of the hairs in the area you're epilating. Finally, this convenient and easy-to-use epilator uses multiple speeds to improve its use. Speed 1 offers extra-gentle epilation, while Speed 2 offers high-efficiency epilation. Choose the right speed for you, and enjoy your softer and smoother skin.
