Summary: Alright, so I figured I'd write a review for this product, even though I don't normally. Firstly, i think it's relevant that I have very coarse hair where i've been shaving for years, and very light skin. it sucks because my skin is also somewhat translucent, therefore i tend to be able to see the black hairs before they've even grown back. even after shaving, although my legs would feel smooth, i could still see the shadow of hair.
Summary: I hesitated for months before buying this product because I was afraid of the pain. However, I became frustrated with the expense and inconvenience of waxing, so I finally took the plunge. I am so glad I did! I use this epilator every day or so, usually right after I shower. This approach gets rid of the hair as it grows in, so there's never too much--which is great for keep my appearance high and the discomfort level low.
Summary: Hello, I have been using this product for over a year and love it! It's not perfect, but I am very happy with the results. After reading a few of the other reviews, I'd like to share some things I learned along the way (and wish someone had told me about when I just started using this product). - When you just start using this product you will have stubble for the first 1-3 months.
First time epilating...Not 4 everyone, but I like it

Summary: I love the idea of not having to shave every day, so I've been on the search to achieve this without having to spend tons of $$ on waxing. My pain tolerance is somewhat high, so I wouldn't bother trying to convince the average person to start using this. I did a bunch of research and wanted to find an epilator that wasn't too expensive but wouldn't be too cheap to do the job correctly and ruin my experience with them.
Summary: I honestly thought i would have to get something to accompany this to be totally hair free but I am very pleasantly surpised by the results. I was also pleased that it did not need batteries. I have been having serious chin hair growth problems since my daughter was born, and even though this product is supposed to be for legs , it worked great on my chin. It was actually smooth.
Summary: This product does all it promises! At 62 I have more peach fuzz on my face than desired! Not enough hormones they say. This shaver gets rid of that fuzz faster and stays gone longer than waxing! It's a bit uncomfortable the first time; but no more fuzz! Remember kissing grandma on the cheek and feeling fur? I don't want to be that grandma!!! I LOVE this product!
Great for legs, ok for under-arm, not good for other areas

Summary: I have used this epilator for about a year and find it quite useful for on my legs and underarm. It is sturdy; the performance has not changed after regular use for one year. Braun is a trustworthy brand. Pros: - Does a decent job removing hair. It pulls rather fast to help to reduce pain, but often it breaks hair from just above the skin instead of uprooting it. This could be just me - my hair tends to be thicker, and I rarely exfoliate.
Summary: I shared a Philips ice epilator with my sister before this one (which was really great), but when I moved to U.S. I bought Braun SE3170 Silk-épil SoftPerfection Epilator . Initially I was looking for one with ice, but could not find any appropriate offered at the time. This, however, works well for me and I guess price-wise is also a good deal.
Summary: I've never tried an epilator before, but I wanted a hair removal method that wouldn't compromise the tan that I spent so much time and money developing. This product had great reviews, so I tried it. And it was great! It is simple to use, and not very painful. My underarms and legs stay smooth for many days, and I even use it on my bikini area. (But beware, the bikini area hurts very much!!!) The results are totally smooth, and my tan legs remain tan after epilating.
