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.

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.
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!
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.
I don't usually write reviews but I've made the effort to sign up to this website specifically for this.
Haven't used an epilator for years until I decided to give up on waxing appointments and invest in this machine. Using it once has already paid a good 30% of its price. That's without counting the wasted time and effort of getting to a waxing parlor.
It's very practical, fast and I can use it in my own free time being a busy mum.
I found the extra brushes the machine comes with fantastic. I know they're not meant to be used on the face but I've tried the softer one and it works as a great facial scrub!
My skin hasn't felt so soft for a while.
I'll never go back to shaving again!
After putting off the purchase of an epilator for most of my adult life, while struggling with nicks and cuts of razors, less effective electric shavers, painful, messy and ineffective waxing I finally took the plunge.
I made my purchase from Myer, and was pleasantly surprised that instead of the purple coloured device as seen on their website, it was in a beautiful rose gold (around the base of the epilation head and the swivel switch). Best part? It is not Made In China, but in Germany.
Opening the packaging was easy, it opens from the...back and first thing you see is the awfully thick instruction manual (written in about 15 languages), a travel power cord, a bag of accessories that includes covers for facial and bikini area epilation, a storage bag, the shaving head, and a brush for cleaning after use, and most of all, a base for charging on the counter. The device itself is a little heavy, but fits nicely in the palm of my hand. After charging it for over an hour until the light stops flashing and a shower, I gave it a try. I am used to waxing, I have done it a few times, but it actually doesn't hurt as badly as waxing. There is a row of tiny spiky wheels that is said to be a massage wheel, so I experienced some slight prickling sensation while the epilator worked away ridding me of unwanted body hair. Basically you hold it as you would with a razor, and glide the head along your arm/leg. Because most of my body hair grows in all directions, it made it very difficult and messy to wax, but this epilator have not had much trouble at all. In all but 10 minutes my legs and forearms are hair free. Next, I put on the bikini head cover and used it on the underarm area. Ok, this was the part where I had to constantly chant "beauty is pain, beauty is pain" to get through the process while doubling over into quite grotesque positions in front of the bathroom mirror. The result was slightly bloody (only for a few moments), but very very satisfactory indeed!
The best so far.
Don't bother looking at any other epilator.
This is my third and definitely the best.They have improved the features and I love the extra wide head.It has halved the time and it gets even the smallest hairs.
It may be painful for first timers but persist as it does become painless.I have been using them for several years and it doesn't bother me at all so ignore first timer reviews mentioning this.
Price around as there are often some specials.
Questions & Answers
what is theprice
Mmmm! From memory I paid just over $200 at the shaver shop. I got the skin spa set which came with face brushes. There’s another model that around $300 that comes with a mini epilator ( battery operated) for eyebrows. Good but chews through batteries. I bought mine separately. And there’s another version just under $200 that just has the epilator. If you think you wouldn’t use the face brushes I’d go for that. They vary in price so shop around.
Which better Braun silk 985 or 9300?
Is this suitable for the upper lip and chin
