Proven Fast and Painless Hair Removal
Epilation removes hair at root level resulting in smooth skin that lasts for weeks. Older models used to pinch and pull, but the Xpressive features a massage system that stimulates the skin before and gently soothes it after hair removal to reduce pain. A set of Olay Pre-Epilation wipes are included to soften the skin and make the process even gentler. The perfect solution to all-over hair removal, the Xpressive quickly takes away even the tiniest hair with a 40-tweezer system that has a pivoting head for maximum thoroughness. And you'll never miss one of those flat-lying strays, the Xpressive also has a SmartLight that highlights every hair for your complete control.

Smart Design for Easy Control
Braun's Silk-epil Xpressive is specially designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. You'll experience easy grip and control for maneuvering the device over sensitive places on your body. The included shaver head with Optitrim attachment allows a fast, close shave of underarms, bikini line, and other challenging areas. Regrowth is slow and it leaves hair finer and thinner every time around for gorgeously smooth skin. The epilator is fully washable for maximum hygiene, and its modern design looks great in the home. It comes with shaver head and trimmer, massage system, efficiency cap, and a beginner cap and pouch.

I am in LOVE with this product! I got so tired of shaving EVERY DAY in the summer time just so I can wear shorts, capri's, or a dress. The first use was VERY painful. For me, it was worth it. I just used it for the third time, and it seems to be less painful with each use. If you go very slowly, and run the epilator over the same spot a few times, you basically get every hair -- and I only paid a little over $100 for this item. I tried waxing, but the hair breakage I was left with made the experience a total waste of money and time. I paid $150 for a full leg wax and bikini wax last year before I went on vacation, and still ended up shaving the whole vacation just so I could wear a bathing suit every day. I'm not brave enough to use this on my underarms yet. The best advice I can give is to use this in the late afternoon when you're not going to leave your house -- you are left with tiny red spots where the hair gets pulled out, but this is gone by morning. By the third use, the red spots almost had disappeared before bedtime. I hope you find this review helpful.

I am a bit of a body hair-phobe. Shave in all areas (legs, bikini, underarms) daily. Waste lots of time, water, and razors that way, but maintain my sanity. I saw this epilator when it was a gold box deal. Had a Christmas gift certificate, so thought, "why not?"

In all my years (and there are getting to be distressingly many of them) I have never epilated or waxed in any of the relevant areas. My sister-in-law once described her bikini wax in infinite detail - enough to put me off body waxing for good. I saw a friends epilady years ago and immediately recognized it as an implement of torture. So I slogged along year after year with my daily defoliation. Until I saw this new creation. It looked practical, sounded reasonable and the reviews were good - so I bought it.

Day one - tried it out on the kids and husband first. (Never said I was a saint.) Kids said that it "tickled" and pinched a bit. Husband screamed in agony. Decided to trust the kids.

Day two - after a hour of yoga and deep breathing plugged in the device. Several long minutes later, turned it on. Hesitantly applied it to my lower leg. (Leg hair with one days growth, naturally.) In general pain level was very mild, mostly a pinch and a pull, unfortunately I experienced no tickling. Once I a while there was a "YOW" moment, but nothing to go on about. Success, I love my epilator.

Day three - Legs remain pleasingly smooth, will move on to problematic underarm and bikini areas. How bad can this be? Answer: Very. Did not read review recommending three alcoholic beverages prior to use, now understand the need, would recommend general anesthesia instead.

Days four, five and six - ponder impending sale of nightmare inducing epilator. Will anyone in their right mind buy an used epilator?

Alright, so lets get a couple of things straight:
1. When I say my hair is thick, course, and bushy I'm talking thicker, more course, and more bushy than some parts of my husbands body hair. Granted, yes, no matter how hairy I am it does not change the fact that there is a small amount of estrogene and progesterone floating around my blood, thus hindering some of the bushy thickness from growing to the likes of my husbands in particular areas (I'll just spare you the details and list em here: legs, face, & belly), however, when I tell you I have never in my life known a woman hairier than myself and I am not being dramatic (why would I want to be?!), please believe it!
2. I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). That means a couple of things: 2a) It means that I grow excessive amounts of body hair than the average female, 2b) The hair I grow grows back thickly and quickly.
3. Yes, I DO HAVE A BEARD. Is it like my husbands? No, not at all. Is it as dramatic as it sounds? No, not at all. But do I grow extremely course hair underneath my chin and along my upper lip? Yes, I do. Is it hard on me? Yes, it is. Do I feel ugly and gross because of it? No, I don't! I embrace my feminine 5 o'clock shadow and realize that life is wayyyyy too short to give a heck about whether or not my chin is hairless. Also, I've had it since I was 13 and I'm 24-11 years of living with hormone imbalance, its all just added bonuses of my life at this point. And, I'm a BIG believer in hair removal products however they come (except depilatory creams [i'd be a hairy lady-man any day of the week than put that poison on my face ever again] and electrolysis [really, I'd rather spend $2,000 on a trip to Europe or a down payment for a Vespa...

I've waxed my underarms every three weeks every summer for the last few years - which adds up money-wise. I bought the Silk Epil as an alternative, figuring I would just have to use it 4 times to make the money back in what I would've spent at the salon. The first time I tried it, it was so painful that I screamed. I couldn't believe how bad it hurt - MUCH more than waxing. I'm happy to say that I just finished my 4th time and the pain is now manageable. Not pain-free, but a similar level to waxing, which I can tolerate. Here's how I did it:

1. Start on your legs to get used to the sensation. It's unlike anything else.
2. Use it on as short as hair as possible. It really does make a big difference in the pain - the tugging feeling is awful. I shaved and then tried again four days later.
3. Pull your as skin tight as possible.
4. For me, turning my head and watching makes it more tolerable than watching it the mirror. Must be a psychological thing, but it is a big difference.
5. Take a deep breath and just plow through it. I hold my breath and take a pause between each pass. The pain dissipates quickly - within ten seconds.
6. Don't wait for all the hair to grow back before epilating again. Hair grows in at vastly different rates, and it is much easier when the hair is sparse. I do it every week, and it gets easier each time.

Good luck!
