Braun SE7681 Silk-├ępil 7 Wet and Dry Epilator, White

Pros: Incredibly well-made with a pivoting head for adding hair removal comfort. Features gentle and efficient speed settings, and a convenient Smartlight that makes it easy to find small, short hairs.

Cons: Can't be used while it is plugged in, and it loses power as the charge begins to fade.

Summary: The best on the market. Relatively expensive, but it will get the job done, quickly, efficiently, and painlessly.

Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator, Whit...

Pros: Stands out for its extra wide head that removes a lot of hairs per stroke. We love that it has 2 speed settings for quick hair removal and can be used as a shaver and trimmer.

Cons: Somewhat noisy to use. It has less tweezers than other models we tested, and can be more effective as a shaver than an epilator.

Summary: With several attachments and a wide head, this epilator is an effective model for a mid-range price, but the Emjoi AP is a better value.
