Each of these models has a range of clip-on heads to cope with different parts of the body: Legs (and arms), sensitive areas like the Bikini line or under-arms. The Braun 7681 also has a precision attachment to target unwanted facial hair. Both have a handy contrast light that can help you target pesky hairs you might otherwise miss.

The Braun 7871 Silk-épil and Braun 7681 Silk-épil Xpressive Pro can be operated wet or dry.

Most users told us this option of being able to epilate in the bath was a fairly painless way to remove hair, especially from sensitive areas like the front of the ankle.

That’s because in a warm bath you (and your skin) are relaxed, the pores open – so it’s easier to pluck hair with a minimum of discomfort. Plus unwanted hair is flushed away down the plug-hole.

The Remington EP6030C and Philips HP6572 Satin Perfect are also effective female grooming tools. They are £20-£30 cheaper than the Braun models. And being cheaper they only offer dry operation, but the Philips model has a contrast light.
