Braun Silk-epil Xpressive 7681 Epilator
The Braun Silk-epil Xpressive 7681 epilator is a great addition to Braun’s best-selling line of products – and what a welcome addition it is, indeed.
Like several of its siblings, this is a “wet and dry” epilator, the meaning of which – as I’m sure you’ve guessed – is rather self explanatory: it can be used on wet (as well as dry) skin, for an easier, more fluid (no pun intended), smoother and all-round more comfortable epilation experience.
A new addition to this particular model of epilator is the new “Close Grip Technology”, which is a proprietary system developed by Braun to lift those shorter-than-short, extra-fine hairs – those darn pesky ones that previous epilators often left behind (and you perhaps would’ve eventually abandoned out of sheer frustration) even after numerous “passes” with the device over the same area of skin.
In addition, the ever-present and so-called SoftLift tips do the work of lifting and grasping hold of those flat-lying hairs which just refuse to stand up and submit themselves to the epilation head no matter how much time and effort you might otherwise have put into stretching, pulling, pushing and taughtening your skin from all manner of angles and directions. Coupled with a large 40-tweezer head, this epilator is capable of pulling more hairs in a single stroke or pass than just about every other closely comparable epilator on the market.
Another recurrent feature present in the Braun 7681 epilator – and no stranger to other previous models in this range – is the SmartLight LED, which effectively “highlights” extra fine and otherwise largely invisible hairs, so you can be sure that when you’re finished, the job is well and truly done, and thus saves you from the disappointment of later discovering (probably at an inconvenient time, as so often seems to happen) that you haven’t achieved quite as flawless an epilation result as you’d initially thought. All these things, whilst obviously not life-changing, just make the experience that little more straight-forward, efficient and convenient. And this helps a lot where epilation is concerned, because by its very nature, it’s not an activity most relished by many people; rather, just one that’s tolerated and endured.
4-way massaging rollers gently massage your skin which contributes a little extra comfort for those who might otherwise have been quite sensitive to epilation and waxing.
This particular device is, of course, cordless and rechargeable, and you can expect a generous 40 minute (approx.) battery life from an hour’s worth of charging.
One slight drawback is that should you forget to charge it, you’ll be unable to operate the device straight from the mains. But this is for a very good reason – one of safety. The last thing you want is to be able to operate a device designed and capable of wet-use anywhere near the mains supply. So long as you put it on to charge immediately after every use, you can be sure there’s be more than enough charge to epilate your whole body the next time you come to use it.
Overall, the Braun 7681 epilator boasts a couple of new and interesting features which sets it apart (and sees it a progression) from its older siblings – but this line of products as effective as they are, it’s the small refinements and additions that make all the difference.
