As a beauty obsessive who loves to keep stubble free at all times (or at least tries to), I have long been a fan of epilating. It’s quick, effective, produces results that last for weeks and although admittedly can be rather painful at times, a lot more convenient than having to visit a salon every few weeks.
In fact, I had been so happy with the results from my trusty old Braun epilator, that I had been using the same one for years (7 to be precise) with out a thought to replace it.
So when the generous people at Braun asked me to try out their new Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa, I was pleased to oblige but if I’m being totally honest, couldn’t see how it would differ from ‘vintage’ edition. After all how much could an epilator really be improved?
… The answer? An awful lot!
A 2-in-1 epilation and exfoliation system, the Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa contains Braun’s fastest and most precise epilator, the Silk-épil 9 Wet&Dry . Removing even the shortest of hairs that waxing can’t catch (I’m talking a short as 0.5mm!) it provides up to 4 weeks of stubble free, silky smooth skin and thanks to it’s pivoting head that adapts to the contours of your body, you can be assured it’s catching every last hair. But what really blew me away with the Silk-épil 9 Wet&Dry epilator is how much less painful it is.
With over 40 tweezers and two speed settings, Speed 1 for extra gentle epilation and Speed 2 for extra efficient epilation, plus its new ‘pulsation active vibrations’ for a more comfortable experience, it’s really does put my old epilator (or any previous ‘at home’ waxing experience for that matter) in the shade.
Still not convinced? For those that are extra sensitive, the Silk-épil 9 Wet&Dry is 100% waterproof so you can even use it the bath of shower under warm water for a virtually painless experience. How genius is that?!To complete the experience the Silk-épil 9 Wet&Dry Skin Spa comes with a shaver head and a trimmer cap, plus an attachable deep exfoliation brush that is 6 x more effective than a manual brush to reduces ingrown hair and a sensitive exfoliation brush to visibly refine your skin for an irresistibly smooth, silky feeling.
The Silk-épil 9 Wet&Dry Skin Spa is available at Boots stores nation wide for £179.99.
