Quality Investment Product

Braun is a well-known name in the world of epilators, and the Silk Epil 7921 is a good example of why. It removes hairs as small as a grain of sand effectively and with a minimal amount of pain, leaving the skin smooth for up to six weeks. The pivoting head of the epilator allows for contouring around curves easily and safely.

Extra Features

The Braun Silk Epil comes with a long list of extras. There is a light to illuminate small hairs for more accurate grooming. The rollers actively massage and stimulate the skin to provide a very gentle epilation.


Exfoliating Brush

The attaching brush has 10,000 bristles to remove dead skin cells. Exfoliation is an important step before epilation because it prevents ingrown hairs and allows the hair to be removed more easily. This Braun provides you with a great extra in this exfoliating brush, and it really works well.

Epilating Head

There are several advantages in the way the epilating head on the 7291 is designed. For one thing, it pivots in a similar way to a man’s electric shaver. This eliminates the problem that many epilators have with getting hair off the contours around the knee. Also, the vibrating massage feature does result in a more pain-free and closer epilation than competitive brands.

Wet/Dry Feature

The Braun Silk Epil 7291 is completely immersible, which is a nice feature in an epilator. It means that you can remove hair in the shower or bath, and this may help to reduce the discomfort that is basically a fact of life with all epilators.


Can Only Be Used Cordless

The Braun Silk Epil will not work when plugged in. While this a safety feature that Braun included to prevent anyone from thinking they could use it while it was plugged in when they were in the bath or shower, it does cut usability a little. It means that if you forget to charge it, you’ll have to wait for it to charge before you can do your hair removal. This could be a problem if you’re in a hurry.

No Trimming Head

For higher end epilator, it’s a bit of a disappointment that the Silk Epil doesn’t come with a trimming head for grooming hair that is longer without completely pulling it out. This a useful feature in the bikini area, and it’s too bad this one can’t do it. If you don’t find that to be important, you won’t miss this feature.

Overall Review

The Braun Silk Epil 7921 is one of the best higher end epilators available. While you might miss the trimming tool attachment and the fact that you can’t use it when it’s plugged in, you’ll get some bonuses that other brands miss. The biggest bonus is the exfoliating head, a huge strength if you’re prone to ingrown hairs. It’s fully immersible which can help to make epilating more pleasant since you can use it in the shower or bath. The light is a nice addition that you won’t find on a lot of the competition. Overall, it lives up to the Braun hype.
