Directions

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.

  • Dream Come True!!!! 5 Star Rating
    This product is awesome! Ive only used it for a week and except for the Emoji Tweeze, i havent used any other epilators, but its great! It removes hair and whereas with waxing (proffessional waxing) it took only days for hair in some areas to grow back, with this, my skin is still silky smooth...and of course when hair does show up, i can easily remove it again, not pay $100 to have it waxed again. Dont kid yourself, it does hurt...if you are looking for an epilator that actually pulls out your hair, it WILL hurt!!!Nature of the beast Im afraid. The great thing though (and it hurts BAD the first time) the more you use it the less it hurts, because your hair follicles get accustomed to it. I recommend starting with the starter head, it has less tweezers...I know tough for the impatient, but it gets your skin used to the tweexing so that you can switch to the regular head and it will be bearable to use.This thing does pinch if the skin is not tight enough. one of the areas on my thigh where the skin was very thin got pinched...just be careful and keep the skin tight. DO NOT use it on the extremely delicate areas down there, this thing is too strong! If you want to do a home made brazillian...trim..carefully...and then use an Emoji Tweeze...much safer! for everything else, this product is a dream come true!

  • Best Way To Remove Hair 5 Star Rating
    Ive tried a few methods: shaving (only lasted 3 days for me), waxing (messy & always painful), depilating (stinky! & paranoia about getting chemicals all over the bathroom), individual tweezing(who has the time?). Using this epilator has been the best by far. I read that waxing your hair before using it for the first time saves you some pain, but I was so excited to try it that I just went for it. The first time did hurt badly because I was using Veet before this, so my roots were pretty established and strong. Its definitely not the most painful thing youll ever experience in your life, and after the first few times it will barely bother you. The results are well worth it! Once you get used to the pulling/tweezing, the little massaging rollers really make it more comfortable and nice to use. Its also very noisy, but I dont think quiet epilators exist.

  • Nice Product, But Rough! 4 Star Rating
    this product works good and it gets all of the little baby hairs and impossibly short hairs that waxing misses. But, if you are going to use this, I definitely recommend waxing first. Then, when your hair starts growing back little by little, start using this product. then it wont be as painful. do not try to use this on a full amount of hair regrowth!My only complaint is I used it for the first time 3 weeks ago and now that those hairs are starting to grow back and they dont all break through the skin when they grow back now. its weird and it looks like stubble. What good is it to be hair free if you have something that looks like stubble all over your legs? lol. so Im trying to exfoliate to alleviate that problem. but its hard to do too much of that without making my legs look all red and irritated. I may go back to shaving for the summer and keep this around for the winter.

  • Awesome 5 Star Rating
    i love epilating! seriously! so much better than shaving or waxing! the Braun Silk Epil Xelle Body Epilation System did hurt the first time i used it, but i now im used to it and my hair has become softer and thinner and much less then there once was. im still not brave enough to use on bikini line because it does hurt, but epilating i would recommend to anyone for legs, definately! can be done in privacy of own home, easy, no mess, no waiting with hairy legs! fantastic!

  • This Thing Bites 1 Star Rating
    Do yourself a favor ladies. Stay away from this thing.I wanted to use it to keep my bikini line smooth and clean.I would have been better off blasting..less pain I can assure you. It may be a bit more of a hassel to shaver but its a lot safer and a lot less painful.My God, what were they thinking when they come up with this thing. Would have been great for the Inquisition.KM

  • Excellent First Time Epilator 5 Star Rating
    I had been thinking about buying an epilator for a while, ever since my European boyfriend told me about them. Apparently they are very popular over there. I had never used one before, but Id become tired of shaving my legs all the time and having coarse stubble. I did some research and I waxed my legs before I tried the epilator. I really like the look and feel of this silk-epil. It is quite ergonomic and the light does come in handy. I think its a great value for the price, and it includes the other heads and a little bag to keep it all together. I did try my bikini area, but it really did hurt so Im thinking about buying some lidocaine spray. I get bikini waxes regularly, but since this isnt as quick as waxing, I hesitated. Also a bit scared to try on my underarms, but eventually I want to get to the point where I never shave again. I love this!

  • Hair Not There Anymore 5 Star Rating
    I purchased this epilator a few days age through the internet. I am a guy who likes to have bare armpits and bare "down there" completely. I have been shaving for the past 2 years both areas. I was thinking of waxing but was not comfortable about someone in my groin area. I have plucked all of the hairs out at various time throughout the years. I used this in my entire groin except on my testies which I will continue to shave. There was some discomfort but no hair. I looked like a plucked chicken for a couple of days which is slowly going away. I did my arm pits and my groin was more uncomfortable I think. I love this product and I will say it is uncomfortable but very bearable.

  • Good But Don't Be Fooled 4 Star Rating
    Ive always preferred epilators to shaving or waxing and Braun is the best brand that Ive used. I would completely recommend this product.However, dont be fooled by the description - the kit does not include the narrow epilation head, facial set, or easy starter set as was originally listed. The Q&A is deceptive since there is a reply by "customer service" that says they are all included. The individual below that countered the response by customer service is correct.
