How to epilate: tips for first-time users
Evenings are the best time for epilation; you’re more relaxed, and any minor bumps will be gone by the morning! The best preparation is exfoliating in warm water. It will leave your skin clean and relaxed and will help to reduce those dreaded ingrown hairs. Use an exfoliating scrub or mitt, or we recommend our Braun Silk-épil SkinSpa innovative exfoliating brush for 4x better results than manual scrubbing.
When epilating, hold your epilator so that it feels natural. Hold at a 90-degree angle to your legs and run the epilator in an upward motion against the direction of hair growth. There’s no need to press down too hard; simply touch the epilator lightly on the skin. Braun Silk-épil Wet and Dry can be used in the bath or shower for additional comfort. The massaging rollers also help to minimize discomfort. With regular use, epilation becomes virtually painless.
The golden rule is to moisturize after epilation, not before. Apply body lotion for the best results and get set for super-soft, silky skin in the morning.

I've had my legs waxed and threaded, so I knew it wouldn't be easy. Last time I was waxed the hair was "almost long enough" and we decided to go for it. A lot of pain (and 80 bucks) for so-so results. I decided to try a different route. We're planning a Caribbean cruise in the spring and I don't want to have to worry about shaving in the tiny shower or side effects of salt water. I figured the epilator was a small enough investment that it was worth a try.
Let me be honest here - this is not pain free hair removal. Even after a hot shower (and yes, some wine) there were areas that felt more like my skin was being peeled away than a bunch of tiny tweezers doing their thing. However, I kept the epilator moving and made it through. The first time, it took me about 45 minutes per leg - of that hour and a half, probably 10 minutes was truly painful, but obviously not unbearable - just not at the top of my list for a fun way to spend Saturday night.
Also of note - your legs will not be perfectly smooth. YET. Hair grows in stages, so while you may have a ton of tiny, snatched out leg hairs littering the top of your toilet seat and bathroom floor, there's another round of follicles pushing out new, minute hairs that aren't long enough for the tweezers to grab yet, but they are long enough to make your legs feel prickly.
Depending on how fast your hair grows, three to five days later, go for another round (of epilating + wine). It won't hurt as bad, but it's not exactly a massage, either. Repeat again in three to five days. Be sure to exfoliate before and after to prevent ingrown hairs and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
It comes with no attachments. It has a small light which is weak but somewhat useful to have. After 25 years of continuous epilation most of the hair on my leg is gone so it's easy to miss spots without good lighting conditions so the light as tiny it is still appreciated. It's dual voltage, used it in Europe with just a plug converter without any issues.
As far as performance:
This device doesn't pull some of the hair by the roots. When the disks grab onto them they break therefore they grow back much faster. This might just be user error and have to find the sweet spot for the angle so if over time the performance seems to improve I will definitely update this review. For now I'm giving it a solid 3.5 stars.
