Braun Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa Epilator Beauty Set and Facial Brushes



My hair removal limits down to shaving and IPL hair removal (which is too time consuming and costly for my legs). If I were to wear a dress every day I would have to shave my legs approximately twice per week. It grows so quickly!

I have been awfully lazy lately, it takes me a long time to double cleanse, brush my teeth, wash my body, shampoo and condition my hair in the shower so the last thing I want to do is to spend more time to shave my legs.

For the past few weeks I have been testing Braun's Silk-Epil 9 SkinSpa Epilator, read below to see how I went with it!



THE EPILATOR

When I received this kit, it was the first time I have ever tried an epilator. After reading through the instructions, I thought "Ouch" this sounds painful.

I started off epilating my legs, the hairs on my legs were quite long as I have not shaved for some time. The epilator pulls out individual hair, I did half my leg fairly quickly and had to take a break. YES, it was painful, although after about 5 minutes of on and off epilating, the pain subsided.

Little red bumps were visible after I had epilated my entire leg, however the bumps eased after an hour or two. As a result, I would recommend users to epilate in the evening!

Since the first session, I would then epilate my legs for a minute or 2 every 3-4 days to take out all new hairs. This product is incredible, I would spend under 2 minutes epilating my legs every odd day and my legs feels smooth as ever. To be honest, I don't think I will go back to shaving unless I really have to because I find shaving in the shower a real chore as opposed to epilating whilst drinking tea/watching tv.

The epilator is also easy to clean with the little brush that is included in the kit.

EPILATING THE FACE

I used the designated cap to epilate facial areas, I have been epilating my upper lips (hair grows quickly there!) and found it to be a little bit difficult with the cap, some of the hair closer to my lips or around the edge of my lips were difficult to remove.

I did not experience any red bumps or any sensitivity.

EASY TO CHARGE

I am SO happy that this is epilator is chargeable via a power point included in the package. I really dislike batteries.

EXOLIATION AND DEEP MASSAGE

I have never used an exfoliation or a massage brush on my body before. This is a real luxury. The brush and massage are attachable once the epilator head is removed.

The massage brush is a fantastic method to exfoliate your body in the shower, while I find the massage brush to be best used after you have applied body lotion/cream to increase circulation.


THE FACIAL BRUSH

This facial brush is sort of like an "add-on" in the set. It contains a normal brush, sensitive brush and exfoliation brush. The brush is battery operated, unfortunately this is not something I prefer.

I found the normal brush and exfoliation brush to feel a little bit harsh on my skin and prefer the pink sensitive brush.

Although I am not too fussed on this brush, it is an 'add-on', so really, it's bit of bonus if you are looking to purchase an epilator anyway!
