Removes hair efficiently
I bought this to replace an older model. To be honest I ended up just using the shaver head on the old one as it hurt so much. But I am more than happy with this new model. I’ve even used the epilator on my underarms and on some very stubborn chin hair. It’s awesome. It certainly doesn’t hurt like my older model did. Zips over my legs almost pain free. Pretty sure after a couple more uses I’ll be able to say “pain free”
I’m really pleased I bought this. I’d highly recommend it.

Definitely worth it
I had never used an epilator before so I don't have anything to compare this to. I bought this from the Shaver Shop for 40% off so if it wasn't for the discount I probably would have gone the epil 7 because it is the exact same device but doesn't have as many attachments as the epil 9. I'm really impressed, it works really well. My hair is gone, and the pain isn't any where near as bad as you think it's going to be. I prefer to use it dry rather than wet but that's just my preference. I'm o pleased with this purchase I love the light on the dev...ice. The exfoliating attachment is great. I hate shaving my legs as I find it such a chore and waxing is too expensive and I find it pretty painful. I have had Brazilian and underarm IPL and I liken the pain to that. The best part is that the device lasted the whole time and when I went over again the never morning which was about 50mins all up. 100% recommend this to anyone starting or upgrading.

Efficient and has lasting power.
This is the first epilator that I have ever used so far. Before using it, I had only ever used basic tweezers on my eyebrow region so I was a little intimidated by the idea of the pain I was potentially inflicting on myself.
Once it was charged I tried it on my ankles as a test area. Suprisingly, it didn't hurt anywhere near as expected. The back of my knees were the most sensitive. After use, I discovered that I was able to epilate both legs with charge still left in the battery. I tried my arm pits next. The epilation was really consistant an...

Best purchase ever!!!!!
I was hesitant in purchasing one of these and read many reviews about different brands models etc. I eventually purchased this one and its the best decision I have made for myself. Why did I not buy one of these years ago!!!!! Has everything you need compared to what I saw with other models, I am definately not dissapointed and would 100% recommend this for anyone.

Finally found a replacement for my old Emjoi from Sunbeam
After owning several Emjoi epilators as far back as early 90's, my last one finally died on me and I was devastated as they were no longer manufactured! After extensive reviews online, it was still difficult to choose so I just walked into the Shaver Shop and purchased what felt right. This was 6 months ago and I have never looked back! My Braun Silk-epil 9 is fantastic! Can have both legs done in about 10 minutes compared to 30 minutes! At first didn't like how it was cordless as I thought plug-in would be more powerful (like my emjoi) but...no, it is as powerful and so much easier not having to plug it in! It stays charged for a long time (whole duration of full legs, bikini and underarms) and doesn't take long to charge either. Has a flashing green light to indicate charging which stays green once charged. The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because I do find it rough sometimes under my armpits, even after a shower and applying baby powder beforehand. Its like my skin under there is sensitive, but this doesn't happen all the time. Never had this problem with Emjoi. Bikini line is fine with baby powder too (just like my Emjoi) Maybe Braun need to look at investing in gold tweezers which are more gentle on the skin?? Overall very happy with appliance as it's easy to use and saves me lots of time. Cordless is priceless!

Excellent epilator left my legs silky smooth and hairless for weeks UNBELEVABLE
I have used epilators before but not like this one they have always left my legs stubbly and been very painful but not with the silk epil 9 which was quite painless and took every single hair even the tiny pesky fine ones and quickly to, It has been 2 weeks and my legs are still silky smooth like day one, I recommend this to anyone that wants non stop silky smooth legs and all the accessories to keep them that way, Excellent product braun

Totally worth the price
After upgrading from an Epil 7, I was amazed at how much faster and less painful this was to use. It charges quickly and holds the charge for a decent time, especially good when you are doing your legs. Highly recommend this model
I Have had this for almost a year, & have had no problems with it. Does exactly what it says it will, and works better than my last emjoi epilator.
quiet & reliable
Upgrade from much older version, which has just broken. Love that I can use in the shower. Multiple different attachments great idea. No faults as yet noted 2 months in.
This is a great epilator. Its very quick, and when used in the shower I personally can barely feel a thing. It's got good battery life. Also all the attachments it comes with are amazing.
Great epil I ever had
I Have bought Braun silk epil 9 a few month ago and absolutely love it.
It is very convenient that it is cordless and I can use it in the shower. Take less time to epil cause of long head and skin is very silky after few weeks of using it. Picking even short and tiny hears
My skin is less sensitive to the epilator so i use it without the massager which make shaving head is even longer.
Would definitely recommend to buy it, very handy!
I wish I could give this 5 stars....
I purchased this product going into a small appliance retailer wanting the best they had on the market at the time. This model came in a kit that was $299 (owch!).
My very first hair remover I ever owned was a braun which laster years so I purchased it, thinking that somthing so little and so expensive would be the same.
It lasted 6 months before it stopped pick up any hair :( I had it replaced. I have had the second one (same model) for 6 months now...
It does what it’s meant to! The battery life is great and the exfoliating brushes definitely is a plus. I recommend this product to anyone who’s in for a hassle free hair removal.
I have used emjoi's for yrs then went onto the silk epil, I also would get a lot of hair breakage with all models but with the epil 9 I highly recommend you use it only in the bath, your skin is soft and so are the hair follicle's , I soak in a warm bath for about 5-10min before I start using it and truly I hardly feel a thing and yes I still get some hair breakage but compared to 80% success it's worth it and after I moisturizer straight away and the redness is gone within an hr I will never use dry again and with the bigger head it takes me maybe 5min more than shaving would.
Quick and Slick
I finally upgraded from my old Braun that was literally out of the Ark. It had a small head and taught you the meaning of pain endurance (in the land of epilation). So moving into the 21st century with this model was fantastic. As I was already using an epilator on a regular basis I didn't have to go through that first 'pain' sensation but I feel with the wider head and the tweezers grabbing closer would make that tolerable. I love the fact that this is a cordless model and has a really substantial charge. Keep the unit charged and you will be ...ready to go if you want a quick tidy-up. The light shows up the smaller hairs you may have missed. Hair does grow back more slowly and regular use makes the job that much quicker and painless. I have not tried it in the shower so I can't comment on performance in that area. I have used the other head to shave underarm for a reasonably close shave and the trimmer for more discrete areas. Not a bad trimmer but I used other devices (Veet) that trim more neatly. Don't forget to pull the head apart and clean it after each use. There is a little brush in the kit so use it. I have no hesitation in recommending this product. Wait for it to come on special though. Shaver Shop usually has something on offer.
Questions & Answers
Which better Braun silk 985 or 9300?
Is this suitable for the upper lip and chin
I bought it at first and the noise was ok. And I've been using it dry and cleaning it everytime. But today it made a very disturbing sound in the head of the epilator. What could be the problem?
Even though we clean the head with the brush and give it a good blow of air, this still doesn't remove all the tiny hairs inside the head. If you turn the head upside down you will see a hole, I find by tapping this gently on the basin more hairs come out. Keep tapping until no more hairs. I hope this helps.
