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.

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.

    (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.

    By A Customer on July 14, 2004
    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've been using this for a few months now. I purchased it because I have light skin but dark, coarse, quick growing hair so my legs look and feel stubbly 12 hours after I shave them. I tried creams but they were a mess and home waxing took forever and forced me to wait a long time between sessions so that all the hairs were long enough to pull out.
    This is easy to use like an electric razor,and works on much shorter hair than home waxing so no monster legs. I had been shaving before the first use, so had dense hair growth and the first couple uses hurt a bit. After that its not painful because hair growth is thinner for each use. I'd recommend waxing once before the first use if you're worried about it hurting.
    It doesn't get legs perfectly hair free like shaving, very short or very fine hair is left behind, I had this with waxing as well so was not disappointed. My legs in a week still look and feel better than they used to a day after shaving. If its important to me, I run a razor over what's left and then have super smooth legs for days. I've only felt the need to do this twice for special occasions. Usually I use it every two weeks, but sometimes once a week if I want smoother legs. I often let it go for 2 weeks because the hair is so fine and soft that I don't have scratchy legs to bug me or my husband. ;) Would have given 5 stars if legs were perfectly hairless after use, or if I could go a month between uses.
    If this broke or was lost, I'd purchase another one immediatly.
