I got the Braun wet and dry one and am happy with it but I waxed for 10 years so the hair is fine and it's not v. sore.

You have to do it every week and it's not "perfect" - which doesn't show that much on me because the hair is fine but might if it is dark on you.

Hurts like a bastard the first time. Next time it isn't so bad. I do it now and don't bat an eyelid. Much better than shaving - and the hair that does grow back is a lot lighter.

I can't even remember what brand mine is blush. They're all much of a muchness, I suppose...

Less painful under water I found so the wet and dry was good for that.

Plus mine has a light which is brilliant.

Braun silkepil is fab!

Hurts like a bitch first time but you do get used to it, honeslty!

It has a wee light which is great for seeing what your doing, just remember to exfoliate first to help with any wee ingrowing hairs.
