Braun Silk-Epil 7 (7681 WD) Review

It claims to: Remove facial, leg and body hair.
40min use with 1hour charge.
Removes hair as short as 0,05mm
Movable heads that contours your body
Works in water.
It has 40 tweezers

Contains: Olay 16 Pre-epilation wipes
EfficiencyPro Cap
Underarm Cap
Shaver head
Trimmer Cap
Facial Cap 
Message Cap (I'm guessing the name as it has beads kinda)
Cleaning brush
Dual Voltage Charger 100-240V (made in China)
But the machine itself is made in Germany

Picture of all the products together (one of the caps is on the epilator in this picture)
 Shaver head
 Epilator Caps
 Cleaning Brush
 Universal Charger

This epilator is one of the Best rated Epilators around, specially all the epilators from Braun is known to be good.

Ease of use:
This product was pretty easy to use, I really didn't even need to read the instructions its pretty dumb proof.
The caps are supper easy to take off and replace also it was pretty easy to take the head of the epilator off to replace it with the shaver head.

The efficiency of the caps however are controversial as for me I tend to stick to one cap for all my needs but I can see people who are not so pain tolerant as me would prefer to use the smaller caps.

 EfficiencyPro Cap can tilt.

 So can the message cap

Its is pretty easy to clean too, you remove the cape and as the picture shows below turn the side of the epilator tweezers with your finger (do not switch it on as that will cut your brushes) then take your brush and brush it. As it is waterproof you can also wash it under running water.

It is pretty easy to take the head of the epilator off the replace it with the shaver.

The epilator lights up and the light is really bright and useful you can see all your hair clearly.

It comes with this bag which fits everything you got in the box, its pretty useful when you are traveling or even to store your epilator all together.

Battery life:
The battery does last for a long time after one charge. I charged it once and it lasted me three epilation on my whole body plus there is still more battery power left

Underwater function:
The underwater function is good, as in it works well underwater, however I find that it doesn't do a good job underwater as it does when your hairs are dry, in fact it actually takes the hair off about 70% slower.
However the shaver worked really well even when hair was wet.

Shaver & Trimmer function:
The shaver and trimmer functions worked really well when I shaved my bikini area, it trimmed well and it shaved really clean.

Caps are generally good however I prefer to use the biggest non moving cap it seems to do a better job for me than the body contouring cap.

Does it really take out 0.55mm short hair?
Yes and No it does epilate a that short hair at times but not all the time.
Also one more thing to remember you have to run this epilator more than once in the same area to get all your hair out but it does take all your hair out.
