Summary: I have owned this epilator for nearly 18 months. It has a nice shape, removes hairs well and is quieter than other epilators I have used previously. The only problem with the epilator is the battery needed replacing after less than 1 year of use.
Summary: People go on and on about the fact that it hurts, it doesn't hurts etc. the fact is that an epilator removes your hairs ONE BY ONE and from the root so yes IT WILL HURT! This one does not hurt that much for the simple reason that it does not grab all the hairs at once.
Summary: I've tried several makes of razor over the years and always preferred Braun. However this particular model is a tad disappointing. I have a fast beard growth so I if I miss a day it's can be hard work for this one. It takes about 15 minutes and even then I'm not entirely happy with the result.
Summary: In the beginning it was quite painful to use, but it gets better. For a semi smooth effect I find that I have to epilate daily. It's not a quick fix of any sort and it's never a smooth finish (and I'm not hairy at all).
Summary: I've had this for almost a year and so am able to provide a considered review rather than just an initial impression. It's a good, solid shaver with a battery that seems to have lasted by holding its charge.
Summary: I'd always used rotary shavers in the past, but when I researched buying a new one, opinion seemed to be that a foil shaver was better for a close shave, and this Braun seemed to have the best reviews of the mid-price shavers.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Remington rotary shaver which had reached the end of its life. First impressions were very good, it seems very well made and fits well in your hand. From the first use it has given a very comfortable shave with virtually no irritation.
Summary: I have had many Braun Shavers so sort or knew what I was getting. I don't think it cuts as good as some previous Brauns and doesn't have a hard plastic shield to cover the delicate foil whe putting it away.
