Before using, soften skin by bathing and dry your skin thoroughly. Avoid lotion of any sort because it will make your hair slippery and difficult for the epilator to catch. Rub your hair in the opposite direction of growth in order to make the hairs stand up, and test out the epilator on a piece of skin before you begin in order to get used to the sensation. When you’re ready (remember: no pain, no gain!) place the epilator against your skin and move it in the opposite direction of hair growth (like shaving). The slower you go, the more hair the epilator will be able to remove. After one or a few strokes, you’ll be hair-free for weeks to come.

  • Amazing For Certain Areas: Hell For Others. 4 Star Rating
    When using this on your legs, you hardly feel any pain at all.. FAR less than waxing. (This is if you have rather thin hair, if you have thick hair and a lot of it... I recommend waxing first, Then the hairs that grow in after waxing to use this on them). But I do use it on my entire leg effortlessly.I must admit, though, the noise is extremely intimidating at first, ITS SO LOUD! But you get used to it.Now I was under the impression that you would be able to use this on your bikini line and underarms without horrific pain, but that proved to be sooo wrong. I tried to use this carefully and slowly on my bikini line: Hell. I wouldnt even go near my underarms. So im sticking with waxing for those. But it is absolutely amazing for legs!

  • Painful 2 Star Rating
    My daughter asked for an epilator last Christmas. The Emjoi she owned had broken and she wanted a new one. Afterreading the reviews on both products I settled on the Braun thinking she would be pleased. She tried it but said it was much more painful to use. This year Ill get her what she asked for.

  • Excellent Value 5 Star Rating
    I am very pleased with my purchase. I had considered going with a cheaper brand or model, but Im glad that I didnt. Contrary to what one review said, the cord is PLENTY long, and it doesnt really hurt once you get used to it. I even use it on my underarms & bikini line (carefully & slowly). The only down side is that hairs grow at different times and so you have to be willing to put up with a little stubble sometimes to get a really good job (either that or give in & shave). This is NOT a drawback of the product, however, only a drawback of having hair cells!I have zero complaints & I would definately recommend this product!

  • Great, Cheap, Effective Solution For Bikini Line Hair Removal 5 Star Rating
    Ive been doing at-home waxing for the last five years, and was looking for something with the same effectiveness but easier to use. I had been thinking about laser hair removal, but after discovering that even thats not permanent (it lasts about 5 years), I decided to try out the Braun epilator. I chose this one because other reviews I had read praised the effectiveness of the epilator, and I wanted the model that also included that shaver/trimmer attachment, as I trim my bikini line. While Im still getting used to the occasional pain of the epilator, Im very, very pleased with the results. I did my bikini line and my arm pits prior to my tropical vacation, and was totally hair free the entire week after spending about 15 min of epilation. The Braun is easy to use and very effective, and while the pain is a little worse than waxing (probably only because its more spread out vs. waxing, where all the hair is pulled out at once), I love that you can use the Braun quickly for touch ups as needed. Theres no set-up or hassle as in waxing. I dont get any ingrown hairs or red bumps after epilation, but I also make sure to exfoliate daily the areas I epilate in the shower, and I always put Neosporin on the bikini line after epilation to prevent any bacteria from infecting the opened pores. Be aware that youll have red bumps for about 12 hours the first time you epilate; thereafter, I felt like the bumps didnt last nearly as long.

  • Hurts Like F*** 5 Star Rating
    Okay, this product works great and is my first epilator, so i decided to go with a trusted name (Braun). It simply hurts so much and i assume its because its my first time using one. I couldnt finish the area i was trying to do, but I plan on either getting drunk or using some form of painkiller for the first few times because it simply hurts too much. On a side note, i have dark, thick, deep-rooted hair, so thats why its so difficult for me. On areas with very fine hair, its much, much more painless
