  • Summary: Would have liked a light on it and a carrying bag. Also the plug was not a Uk type and would not fit a standard adapter.Also it was £10 cheaper at Argos

bad

Aniqa, Tesco

  • Summary: I would not recommend anyone to buy this product as my skin looked better when i shaved then with the epilator and the hair grows back very fast and spiky. Also it is very time consuming and not all the hair comes off.

Results will vary depending on the user. For my hirsute Asian self, this was barely OK-ish.**Updated two weeks on**

Roroblu's Mum "ROROBLU'S MUM", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a fair-skinned Asian who's inherited her father's hirsuteness, so when I shave my legs in the evening, the next morning I have a hint of stubble, but I can wear a dress or skirt without any visible growth. However, come that evening, it's time for another shave - unless I decide to wear pants until I have the time for another shave. I had high hopes of this epilator, but for me, it was more trouble than it was worth.

A pain!

Amazon
5 May 2013
  • Summary: This thing tears your hairs out by their roots. It is very painful to use, far more than the alternative of shaving your legs. Anyway, what is wrong with body hair? It is natural. People should embrace it! Grow beards, men! Ladies, there is nothing wrong with hair on your legs or under your nose! So, a definite no from me.

Rubbish

Alan & Pam Conway, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: This item arrived with an EU plug, this was never in the description and I had no idea that this item was being dispatched from Ireland. I gave it as a present sent directly to the person and was very embarrassed when they told me they had to go and buy an adapter! Would have been better going to the shops and picking one out myself, much less hassle. Amazon should make these things clear at the time of sale.

A lot of pain for little result

Amanda, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: Not only was this item broken in that it did not retain charge, but the pinching motion does not pluck they smaller hairs and left my skin severely sore as it pinched my skin. I would stick with the older, none pinch, epilators from now on.

don't waste your money, learn how to wax instead

asshaaa, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: I've been waxing my hair for years, but honestly had gotten bored of the ordeal of waxing arms, legs and under arms once a month, and needing to wait for my hair to grow back to a suitable length before i could wax again, and as such looked into epilators. To be honest, i bought this epilator because it was on offer and no other reason. The epilator itself has 20 tiny tweezers that grab your hair and rotate, pulling your hair out of your skin.

not impressed

  • Summary: Being a known make I was hoping that it would do a good job. Sadly you get what you pay for and this is no different to a normal electric shaver.

not good

nikirai123, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: After hearing how Braun is renowned for it's epilators i thought i'd invest. The usually sell for about £60 at most stores such as Boots. I found this a bit too pricey so i bought a new one from ebay for about £20. It's quite small in size but not too small. It comes with a main adapter which is quite annoying as you always have to be near a plug socket if you want to eplilate.
