Epilator newbie

The Braun Silk-epil 9 SkinSpa Epilator is a product every woman should have at her disposal! Aesthetically pleasing the exterior sparkles and oozes sophistication, the rose gold finish highlighting the femininity of the product as well as the luxuriousness of such a tool. The interchangeable heads give so many options including an epilator and shaver, as well as exfoliators and deep massaging pads. Each head is uniquely designed and effortlessly detaches and attaches to the main body of the Epilator, ensuring a seamless transition from station to station.Firstly the Epilator itself comes with two options a close encounter gauge for those experienced with epilating and a gentle guard for those newer to the sensation or simply with sensitive skin. This is a great advantage as I was initially nervous about the potential pain having never epilated my legs before, but alas with the aid of the gentle guard I soon realized there was no reason to be hesitant! The instructions clearly state and suggest that you should smooth your hand along the skin and thanks to these tips and the flawless design I was able to get the hang of it in minutes! Detaching the epilator head was initially a challenge as the button required some pressure to release the latch. However once it had been removed the first time it appeared to effortlessly attach and detach numerous tries afterwards. I would simply suggest being confident in giving the initial click a little pressure as I also assume I was being hesitant when trying to remove the head. Cleaning was also easy as the instructions give clear and helpful steps one should take to ensure the best possible hygiene. The shaver head was also a pleasant surprise as I hadn’t realized how close of a shave you could achieve with an electric appliance! The head was easy to snap into place and in no time I was able to luxuriously shave my leg, the entire process taking less than three minutes as the epilator could remove a run of hair without having to repeat the path. This was definitely an improvement to the many electric shavers I’ve tried which have been lacklustre in their results, the epilator putting them all to shame as no strand of hair was left intact. To see the benefits of the epilator I purposefully used the shaving head on one leg and the epilator on the other. Asking members of my family to feel both and to comment on which felt smoother and softer. With unanimous results the epilator certainly came out on top with family questioning what product I had used to achieve such a flawless and effortless look. And while the shaver didn’t win the battle it even drew compliments of its own, many expressing shock that an electric shaver had managed to achieve such a close cut shave. Many unable to feel any hairs at all especially once I’d returned to shave the areas I knew I hadn’t paid close enough attention to. Seeing as I was looking to truly pamper myself I also decided to treat myself to a nice round of exfoliation. Always having been an avid believer in the benefits of removing dead skin cells, wanting to encourage the reproduction of my own cells over time. Seeing as I’d only ever had a manual exfoliator I was overjoyed with the ease an electric one offered me! Unlike the muscle strain that can often occur when exfoliating manually I was able to use the epilator in a single hand, gently exfoliating my skin while bathing in luxury. Using the deep exfoliator on my skin I was left with visibly brighter skin, feeling light-years younger as I truly felt refreshed and cleansed. I would suggest that newbies to exfoliation try the gentler head first as the bristles are far softer and kinder to sensitive or virgin skin. That’s not to say it doesn’t do an equally fabulous job as it most certainly does! To ensure the quality stretched to both heads I also used them on different areas of my body and the differences were staggering, both leaving my body with a youthful and fresh glow. Something I thought I’d have to spend hundreds to achieve at a spa! The only thing I would mention to be ambiguous is the deep muscle massage pad as I wasn’t initially able to comprehend what the benefits of the attachment might be. For myself the vibrations weren’t the most pleasant sensation however I know this is a personal preference and I did enjoy it more when I used the epilator at night time. Determined to see an honest reaction however I did use the massager on my mother’s legs and she said it was the best thing she’d felt in years! It stimulated her muscles and allowed her to feel like she’d gained a breath of fresh air- something she most certainly appreciated after a hard day’s work! After hearing her opinion I also decided to use it again after a long day and was pleasantly surprised by the results, genuinely believing that the experience gets better after a few uses of the application. All in all I am extremely impressed by the Braun Silk-epil 9 SkinSpa Epilator and would certainly recommend it to any epilator newbies such as myself. Given that there are options regarding trimmers and intensities for the epilator and exfoliators, I believe that the appliance would be a winner for women of all ability and experience. Truly believing that anybody would be able to see the benefits for themselves if they were to give the product a chance. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

not pain free but definitely hair free!

I was pleased to have been selected for the Braun Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa Epilator trial. I have never used an epilator before, so I was keen to give it a try and give an honest opinion. In the past the cost of Epilators has put me off buying one and most reviews say they are painful. On receiving my Buzz kit, I was quite concerned that there was a lot I parts and bits to the Braun Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa Epilator so I slightly panicked. However there was clear concise instructions which made things a lot easier. I popped the Braun Silk-épil 9 SkinSpa Epilator on charge and in less than an hour I was ready to go. The device itself is lightweight and quiet. There is an extra wide epilator head which also comes with a skin contact cap. Then there is a shaving head and trimmer (for the more sensitive areas. There is a fab exfoliation head with brushes which I was advised is good to do before using the main epilator head. So far used the epilator on my legs and under arms. At first using the device is a bit painful but this does subside the more you use it. I have used the product wet and dry and personally I prefer to use it dry as I feel it gives you a better finish. Underarms it is not as close contact removal as shaving but leaves the underarm feeling smoother. Legs have a much better finish than shaving. So far the good points definitely out ways any negatives; The good - The regrowth of hair is a lot less than shaving and it is a lot less messier than waxing. Hair does not feel prickly and the skin is a lot smoother than shaving. The Bad - The only down side is it is not pain free, it is not like the horror stories of epilators of old! However is it not a completely pleasant experience. But I would say once a month rather than shaving most days makes it a winner! Now to get brave and tackle the bikini area….

'W'OOOOOOOOOW!

Ok, first things first. Before I got the epilator I chatted to several friends about their experiences. They ranged from 'my flat mate bled so much she needed bandages' to '. I tried it once for a second and I just cried' to ' I haven't opened The box of the one I bought ten years ago'. Of course, this wasn't a great start but I'm no sheep so I thought I'd just go for it. So I did. When it arrived I felt my leg hair wasn't long enough, I had underarm hair and bikini hair but for a first time there's no chance I was gonna start attacking sensitive bits. I gave it 4 days of growth (I'm quite fair skinned, fair hair and light leg hair growth) and used the epilator for the first time in a warm bath. I felt as if I was getting a tattoo, all over my leg, severe painful pin pricks, all at once. It was certainly tolerable but by no means a walk in the park. I took leg out of the water and it felt the same level of discomfort. It took about ten mins to do one leg, at the end I couldn't tell if all the hair was gone as my leg wasn't smooth; it was covered in raised red bumps. For the sake of consumer testing and wanting to compare with using a razor, I braved the next leg. It took about 15 mins all in to be confident I had removed hair from both legs. At this point I didn't want to use any buffing tools, I just wanted to put the experience behind me. I went downstairs and grumbled a bit and showed of my red bumpy legs with a grimace on my face. About an hour on, the bumps had subsided , making way for hairless but very scaly skin. I massaged some body soufflé into my legs and lo and behold- the are silky smooth and bump free!! The pain is totally gone and I'm now actually thinking the pain for the first time was totally worth it!! The epilator itself is very premier looking, heavy yet trustingly robust. It has a clever light that points you on the right path for hair removal. It really feels like a very prestige item, and for a first time epilator user, i think the quality of this product have me peace of mind. I've seen Braun adverts over the years and have never been tempted to buy one; I guess good thing come to those who (have previously) shaved. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Perfect all in one device

I'm not an epilator fan... But knowing this product was so much more, I was excited! First impressions, was that the packaging looked great and the box was clear with was it came with, why it was different to others and how to get going! Jumping in head first I tackled the shaver and the exfoliation brushes. There were so many options even just for them, with different exfoliator brushes. I used the exfoliator brush first and it was amazing... Best thing is that it can be used dry or wet, so it can easily be part of your daily routine. I then used the shaver/trimmer and that again was amazing... Really close shave and easy to use in sensitive areas! Excited to explore the other extras, as there are 12 all in all! Great little device that fits nicely in your hand and does almost everything! Even my friend who has seen it, loves it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Racing into the lead

I have now been using the silk-epil 9 for well over two weeks now and have managed to experience all it can do. I am so impressed with this product I can not stop smiling. It is like a full pampering session in one. It will shave, epilate and massage the skin. It is by far the best epilator I have ever used for care on my skin. I would highly recommend this product to anyone and because it has all the key features required you only need the one product rather than having to have three different products. This product even has a special feature for the face which really is wonderful. There is no more words I can use to describe how great this product is. All I can say to everyone out there who has not got one go get one you will not regret it!

Impressive first go!

Very excited with my new Braun silk epil epilator, had my first go with it tonight. Very impressed! I was a bit nervous because it has been years since I've tried epilating, I've stuck to shaving since then, the pain used to be too much to keep using. So a bit tentatively I got ready to get used to the pain again but it didn't happen! Put it on the low setting to begin with but very quickly managed to turn it up to the second setting. It was so easy and comfortable. Yes you can feel it pull but the light vibrations seem to mask it perfectly so you can't hardly feel a thing. So quick and efficient, smooth legs in a matter of minutes, even the short hairs had been pulled too. Can't wait to try all the different exfoliating heads and use in water too. I'm converted!

All the extras

Having tried the epilator a few times and finding each time was less uncomfortable than before I thought I'd try the other attachments. First the electric razor worked very well, quick sharp and good result. Still allows you to use the light feature which you a handy to see any hairs you miss good result on underarm and bikini line. Next I tried the exfoliating attachments. Wow. I exfoliate reasonably regularly but found a lot more dead skin cells using this! Skin very smooth and helped prevent ingrown hairs. Also got a better result with my fake tan( no dark knees!) I tried the soft attachment on my face and the result was good I can go a bit blotchy with face things but had no problems with it so kind to even sensitive skin. The massager head an extra wee luxury which was good to stimulate the skin and hopefully will eventually help my dimple thighs. All in all a great investment for self care beauty in the house

Goodbye winter hello summer pins !!!

Let's start with packaging, nice on the eye you can see the product and the many various attachments. I used the epilator this evening and must say I'm very impressed, having used a smaller product previously this is a lot quicker !!! It has a great little so you can see what you are doing and not miss any hairs. My skin felt silky soft and the epilator was a lot kinder to my skin as I suffer with sensitive skin. This weekend I plan to have a pamper which is long over due and I will certainly be using the massage and exfoiltor pads. Up to now I am definitely impressed with this product. Thumbs up from me . P.S make sure you have an adaptor before you use as this is two prong plug [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Silk epil all in one

I love this item. I have had one of these in the past, maybe about 5 years ago, but hey have done nothing but improve it since then. The shaver on my old one sometimes used to nick me, used the new one today and got closer than that one ever did and not one cut. The epilator function is as good as ever, for me it's a quick way to get the hairs on your legs and the bonus is they don't grow back for a few weeks. I would say that I can only do one full leg between battery charges though so don't do it if your in a rush to de hair and be somewhere. The new massage function are fab, the only problem I have is what product to use with them, I used a face scrub but the acrid seemed a bit rough on my sling when paired with the massager, I would say that using a cream cleanser would probably be best and I will be investing in one. I like how the charger is a docking system, I can leave it plugged in and just pop it on as and when I need to. I think this item is great and would recommend it to anyone who asked me about it.
