Braun SE7681 Silk-épil 7 Wet and Dry Epilator Review
Efficiency is the name of the game when it comes to the Braun SE7681 Silk Epil. For those with sensitive skin and finer hair, we highly recommend this device. Additionally, in our opinion, this is the best one for those new to epilating. You will have the ability to use it in warm water which will reduce the pain and discomfort associated with the process. Moreover, it gives those first timers the ability to shave and use once hair regrowth occurs and hairs are short. Since hair grows at different rates, you will have less hair to epilate after shaving and you can do your epilation in stages over a course of a few days until your skin is acclimated.

This is the category that probably matters the most to the most amount of people looking for an epilator. The good news is that this is the area that the Braun SE7681 Silk-épil 7 Wet and Dry excels in. The close grip technology provided by this device, thanks to the 40 tweezers, are designed to get hair that is closer to the skin. Gripping the short hairs at the best angle is crucial when you are looking for an effective unit.
This unit gets the short hairs in less passes than others and that in itself is a relief!
Another key factor are the SoftLift Tips®. These little guys help guide the hair by lifting and directing them towards the tweezers. I would call them your little helpers because this also means that you will have less passes and spend less time on hair removal. If you want to be more aggressive with regrowth of stray hairs, this is your next best friend!
The massagers are great on any device as they really do help in stimulating the skin and making the epilation process more pleasant.
Having a pivoting head is always a good thing in helping you cover all the curves and contours of your body, especially with the assistance of the light, making sure you do not miss any little unwanted hairs.
We can’t stress enough the importance of hygiene when it comes to the epilating process. You always want to have clean skin as well as a clean epilator for the best hair removal results. Even if you do not use this one in the bath or shower, you will appreciate that it can be submerged in water.
Being able to just take the unit as a whole and wash it thoroughly under water is bonus convenience factor for us. You’ll be happy to know that your clean unit will work more efficiently and cause less irritation, ingrown hairs, and infection of the skin.
As we have mentioned before, an epilator having the ability to be used under water does not make or break the deal for us. It is, however, a major plus for this one. The fact that it is so efficient at what it does, coupled with epilation in warm water, will make you actually look forward to using this product.
Knowing that you can get rid of unwanted hair, in a short amount of time, in a warm, soothing environment is the reason you will love this product.
You may know, maybe from hearing from others, that epilating does hurt. There is no way around that. There is, however, ways of making the pain less and the whole experience better. Being able to use this model in a warm bath or shower will be sure to make you and your skin very happy.
We do appreciate the two settings that this device offers. I can tell you that being able to customize the speed can help those that are new to epilating or want to use it on sensitive body areas.
While others claim they can be used in all body parts, this one is a true deliverer. It comes with attachments that help you customize the unit even more depending on where you intend to use it. This aspect gives you true versatility to use on your face and bikini area. Several users of this product agree that it is the best epilator for underarms and bikini.
We should note that men who have used this model give it high praise. It has helped them with their “manscaping” efforts. So, if you do purchase this product, don’t be surprised if your male other half starts using it!
This device is strictly cordless. The only time it should be plugged in is when charging and not in use. It does charge in about an hour which is just a little more than the average epilator. The charge lasts about 40 minutes, giving you time to do your legs and maybe even upper lip.
The fact that it can be used under water, makes it unsafe to have the capability of usage while plugged in. For obvious reasons, it would be very dangerous to make this available. You will just have to make sure that you plug it in after using so that it is ready for your next epilation time.

We have mentioned how men love this product and it is partly to do with the shaver attachment. Having this feature helps in the times that you may not feel like epilating, so it definitely adds value.
The trimmer cap allows you to trim down those longer hairs to get them epilator ready, or not.
The versatility of this device gives it additional value. Moreover, having the sensitivity cap allows for more efficient use in the bikini and underarm areas. The facial cap attachment also achieves the same customization and better comfort for use on the face.
As if we have not mentioned how efficient this product is at hair removal, they do include an efficiency cap. Having this adds even more ability for close contact and faster hair removal.
And when you are all done using it (and have washed and charged it for your next use) you have a pouch to store it in to keep it clean!
Honestly, there are no real drawbacks to this epilator as far as usage goes. The cost may be only factor if you have a lower budget. We can’t, in all good consciousness, rate this product lower due to it not having the ability to be used while plugged in. After all, safety is important.
