Braun 7681 Silk Epil 7 Xpressive Pro Epilator
The new Braun 7681 Silk Epil 7 Xpressive Pro is being promoted as the most advanced epilator
appliance in the world. Ordinarily this would be considered a bold statement for sure... but when it comes
from the engineers at Braun - the world's leading manufacturer of the best selling epilators, the claim
becomes much more credible. With it's state-of-the-art technology and innovative new features the Braun 7681
provides as much as 4 to 6 weeks of silky-smooth skin from the comfort of your home.
Braun designed the silk epil xpressive to provide a more efficient way of removing hair with less
pain. Particularly for people with sensitive skin and first time epilators. If you've never used an epilator
before, the first few sessions, especially with lower end devices can be extremely painful, even unbearable for the
softer more sensitive parts of your body. The Braun 7681 is so gentle that it can be used on the face, armpits,
bikini area, legs - virtually anywhere you need to use it with professional results that will last for weeks.
The flexible pivoting head allows the tweezers to stay close to the skin by adapting to the shape
and contour of the area being epilated. Essentially hugging the surface of the body with each pass you make
allowing the tweezers to remain close to the skin. This provides smoother results in less time with less pain,
exactly what you would expect from a top-line epilator. Additionally, this model is wet or dry and can be used in
the shower or tub if you prefer to epilate with wet skin. Everyone is different but most people find that epilating
with water is gentler and easier to tolerate. Plus they're very easy to clean while in the tub or shower too.

The Braun 7681 includes high frequency dual massage rollers that send small bursts of electrical
stimulation to the skin to reduce the sensation of pain. Similar to a TENS unit, the high frequency pulses
"trick" the skin into not recognizing pain.
Although this feature doesn't completely eliminate the pain 100%, it still helps and is a welcome
addition to this appliance. It also comes with a built-in smart-light that allows the user to easily see even the
finest hairs on the skin. By being able to see the area of skin you are epilating the end result is generally much
smoother without the need to go back and do some areas again that were missed.
Another important engineering feature that this model has is the Braun "Hairlift System" This
feature helps in lifting fine and flat hairs off the surface of the skin for a more thorough removal of hair. This
has been recently added to most of the more advanced epilators on the market because it not only removes more hair,
it greatly reduces the chance for an ingrown hair and infection to develop.
The biggest negative to purchasing the Braun 7681 is the price. Being billed as the best epilator
in the world comes at a price I suppose. Having said that consider this - if you are looking for a cordless wet or
dry device, have extremely sensitive skin, plan to use the epilator on softer parts of the body, and you can afford
it - then I would get this model. When you look carefully at the hundreds of online reviews you'll see that buyers
of the Braun 7681 Silk Epil had very few regrets. If you dont need the extra attachments, don't mind a corded
version and prefer to epilate dry, then you might want to consider one of the lower cost models.
Another downside to this unit is that it is not painless by any means. Despite the added cost and
the manufacturers claims of comfort, epilating with the best epilator in the world still hurts. Is it less painful
then some epilators? Yes, but some would argue not to the extent that the manufacturer claims.
Here's what one owner had to say about the Braun 7681...
"I bought the epilator today and couldn't wait to use it. After it was charged I used
it on my underarms and found the pain to be tolerable. It was nearly as bad I thought it would be. But
I must admit that I have a high tolerance for pain. I used it on my face but had to stop. I'll have to
work my way up to the face I guess. I really like this product. for me its much better then waxing
because I can have smooth skin all the time now."
