Braun 3170 Silk-Epil represents a pleasant appearance with an ergonomic design. It has a SolftLift system which helps erect small hair, and thus it is removed entirely by the 20 tweezers head. The device is provided with 2 speed level:1-soft and 2-fast depending on your individual needs. For a softer and gentler epilating sensation it has attached two massaging rollers in order to reduce the pain. Braun 3170 Silk-Epil works only corded and it is easy to clean with its small brush included in the sales kit.
My own experience with Barun 3170 Silk - Epil
First of all, I must confess I am not a big fan of epilators but if it comes to electric shaving Braun is a brand I trust. And I've tried several brands (as Philips Satinelle or Ufesa for example), trust me! The reason I've bought a lady electric shaver in the first place is that I wanted to save some money. Waxing became too expensive for me and the depilatory creams and wet shaving were not a solution due to skin irritation, fast and rough hair growing.
My first experience with this device in particular, was more than a year ago and I found it not so painful as my previous experience in electric shaving, especially on the sensitive areas of my body. Actually, is the only epilating device that I could use on my sensitive areas although it doesn't have special accessories. What I like best about this epilator are the two massaging rollers and the fact that it removes even the shortest hair off my body. Thus, I get smooth skin for enough time. Beside this, I am content that, even after more than a year of regular use, it is in the same good shape of function. Additionally, it is easy to pack so, I can take it with me every time I need and I can clean it very easy with its small cleaning brush included.
The disadvantages of this electric shaver are that it works only corded and it makes enough noise to bother.
It was worth investing money in Braun 3170 Silk-Epil because I can remove my hair off my body every time I need it, without any particular appointment, at home or when I travel. It was paid off in few months and now I am saving money every time I use it. Although it doesn't have dedicated accessories for sensitive areas the pain is bearable.
