Product Description

Amazon.com

You can save money on disposable razors and avoid the pain of waxing with Braun's SoftPerfection Epilator. This epilator removes even short, flay-lying hair -- so you can enjoy silky smooth skin for up to four weeks. Even better, it is extra gentle and significantly reduces the discomfort that other hair-removal systems cause.

The Braun SE3170 SoftPerfection Epilator offers:
  • SoftLift system for extra-close epilation.
  • Attachments for underarm and bikini epilation.
  • Ergonomic design for comfort and control.
  • Massage rollers to reduce pain.


Two speeds give you a choice of slow or quick epilation. View larger.
A Gentle Approach to Epilation
Silk-epil SoftPerfection takes a gentle approach to hair removal. It features a unique, four-way moving pain softener to ease you into epilation. Two active massage rollers with tiny nodes stimulate the skin before and after the hair is removed to minimize the pulling sensation. The Silk-epil's SoftLift system gives you extra-close epilation and can pluck out hairs as short as 0.5 millimeters, for long-lasting smoothness. And although it is a great way to get those legs gorgeously smooth, it comes with additional attachments for underarm and bikini -- your most sensitive areas.

Ergonomically Designed for Better Control
The Softperfection is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in your hand, allowing better control and maneuverability. Two speeds give you the choice between slow or quick epilation. The 20-tweezer epilator head has an EfficiencyPro Clip that covers a large area of skin in one stroke, for fast epilation that lasts. This lightweight device comes encased in an attractive soft pink case with grips for easy handling. This epilator includes a cleaning brush comes for quick, easy maintenance and an AC adapter.

    You are pulling your hair out by the root!

    My leg hair seems to grow back very fast, so I need to use this a little more frequently than once a week, but it still beats shaving!

    The first time I used the epilator I did feel the pain, but it isn't unbearable or anything.

    (3/04) Now, I am not some weirdo who lives for pain or anything, but I admit, I find myself looking for places other than my legs to use this thing. Legs, armpits, bikini line, big toes... It's just so satisfying to use, knowing that the two hours you may have to put into the process (as one reviewer claimed) is worth it for not having to worry about nicks and cuts at ALL or stubble for at least another two weeks.

    A few things from my own experience for those of you considering:

    I bought this intending to use it on my legs and bikini line only. I was thrilled that it is AC powered, because I feared batteries would become a real budget-killer.

    YES, I did use the attachment thing with the rolling beads the first time I used it. I also used the slowest speed. Decided it wasn't so bad, so I sped it up, then removed the attachment. No problem. I may have even thrown the attachment away...

    YES, you should exfoliate your skin before use. The directions tell you it wouldn't hurt to take a hot shower and exfoliate, then when dry, use the gizmo. Your pores are open, your skin fresh, and the little hairs should be more willing to let go.

    YES, it DOES hurt to use on your underarm. Doing so took a bit of acrobatics, because I found I had to try to pull my skin taught while using it. I also found I got a few ingrown hairs there from use. Decided that using a razor on this area isn't that bad after all.

    NO, it is NOT impossible to use on your bikini area. Just be prepared to sit in some funny, yoga-like positions to get to the areas you want. Also, make sure you keep up on exfoliating here: I find I have the worst problems with ingrowns in this area.

    YES, you can get stubble.

    This is the best product I have tried for hair removal in a long time. I had purchased an Epilady and used it till its recent demise and never thought anything could replace it. Although it was VERY painful to use, the hair grew back very fine and scarce, the longer you used it, improving the hair texture over time. I then used shavers, cremes, lotions, epil-stop and all were worthless products.
    Now that I have the Braun, I am ecstatic with the results, it is much quicker and virtually painless compared to the original Epilady. I highly recommend to women who do not want to become a slave to daily razor shaving!

    It was difficult to get used to at first. But after a while your skin gets used to it and it doesn't hurt at all. Do not let the hair get too long!!!
    This is a tip for first timers: grow the hair out, get it waxed at a salon and only start using this when the hair starts growing back. Or shave and only use this as the stubble grows in. Do not let the hair get too long - that's when it is uncomfortable. This get's teeny tiny hairs and lasts for as long as waxing -- my legs are so smooth and pretty now.
    Caution -- you can't go back to shaving or you'll get ingrown hairs. Exfoliate regularly, too.

    I used this product for about 8 months. The pain became quickly tolerable, but did leave my pores red and inflammed for about 24hrs after each time used. Not good if you want to go bare-legged the day after use. I liked that the regrowth was not nearly as dense (visible) and scratchy as after shaving; however, this doesn't come remotely close to the silky smooth feeling of shaving. I found that I used the gadget fairly often because I didn't like all the "missed" hairs and regrowth. Thus, for me, this became very labor intensive--much more so than shaving. I really missed the silky smoothness from shaving. The biggest downfall for sure was the ingrown hairs-horrible. I use a buff on my body with every daily shower, but this did not seem to help. The bikini area was the worst for ingrown hairs-and they take weeks to work themselves out! Red, swollen, terribly unsightly bumps-NOT attractive! After about 5 months I began getting ingrown hairs on my legs-more than a dozen on each leg. I look like I've been truly eaten alive by bugs! Nasty, nasty, nasty! Unlike bug bites, these are taking WEEKS to resolve. If it weren't for the terrible ingrown hairs, I might have continued to use this product intermittently. So, if you are not prone to getting ingrown hairs then you may like this device. I had no prior history with skin problems (sensitivty, breakouts, ingrown hairs, or razor burn) before using an epilator. I can't wait for all these terrible blemishes to clear up. PS Try this in the Winter!

    I purchased this product after reading the Amazon reviews about it. I had never used an epilator, and had never waxed anything on my body but my eyebrows (and that was only one time). Still, I have a relatively high pain threshold and my leg hair is fairly fine, so I didn't think the pain would be a problem for me.
    I was pretty much right. I'm a little more sensitive in the knee area than the rest of my legs, and I don't really bother with my thighs since my leg hair there is blonde. I have no problem with pain around my bikini line, but it does hurt quite a lot to do my underarms -- and it pinches my skin there, too, which is not only quite uncomfortable, but has drawn small amounts of blood. It's fine for my legs, though -- the first time I used the product, I didn't use the "beginner's head" that comes with it. I just turned the thing on high and started epilating. It hurt, but it wasn't unbearable (and it has gotten better).
    I have had a few ingrown hairs, but I think I can get rid of that problem just by purchasing a loofah and doing some exfoliating in the shower every now and then, so I'm not worried about that.
    No, the reason I gave this product 2 stars is that at least for me, the darn thing doesn't actually pluck the hair out by the root most of the time. Oh, it gets much of the hair out by the root (enough for me to feel twinges of minor pain), but it also breaks a lot of hairs off right at the skin. It leaves those hairs too short to pluck with either the epilator or manually with tweezers, and there are too many of them to pluck manually anyway.
    The result: my legs constantly feel as though I shaved yesterday -- they look smooth (since my hair is light), but they feel stubbly. If I shaved with a razor, I would at least have one day of smooth legs.
