Fantastic product-great results

I have used an epilator with a wire for a long time which I have always found really annoying. I loved that this new epilator is wireless and can be used in water. Being able to use this epilator in the shower and the bathmade things much easier and it still gave a fantastic end result My legs still had a silky smooth finish. The one thing I loved about this eipilator was the cushions around the tweezers which moved well over my knees and made it comfortable and flexibe to use. My only negative of the actual epilator was the wheels to change the speed of the epilator was not that easy to use with the small wheels particularly when my hands were wet in the bathI like the additional adds on of the exfoliating brush and massager. It was easy to switch them over. The exfoliating brush was really helpful as exfoliating is a key part of effective epilating and I loved that there was a choice of 2 different types of brush. The only thing I found was it wasn't clear i the instruction manual was which was deep exfoliating brush and which was the standard exfoliating brush. I really liked the addition of the massager which was a welcome extra feature to provide an enjoyable end of epilating experience.I am absolutely delighted with this product and I would thorouughly recommend i

Loving the new Silk-epil 9!

I am yet to become an epilation convert (I am a bit of a wuss) but compared to other epilators I have tried in the past this is without a doubt a far better quality epilator which does the job more efficiently thus reducing the amount of time having to endure the discomfort. I really love the exfoliating brush head, works really well on the the drier areas of my lower shins (for whatever reason that's always been a dry area for me). I love the fact that you can use it wet or dry because I love indulging in a bath and the Silk-epil 9 is now part of my pampering routine!

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.]

Verdict is still out

I've never used an epilator before so I can only compare to other methods of hair removal (waxing and shaving).This does the job, but it seems to take ages! Also, I had to use it over three different times in three weeks to actually achieve hair free legs (maybe I wasn't willing to spend the full time in one session and that could have had the same result if I had the patience to stick it out all in one go). This does, however, explain the need for and benefit of the 40 minutes of use from the product per full charge.I was slightly overwhelmed when I opened the box and realised how many things it had and how you could use them all individually or combine them all in a stage process. I haven’t decided yet if this is a good or a bad thing that I have so many options for using the product. I’ll update you on this for my other review later…I can fully confirm it does do the job and you can have hair free legs!I can also confirm I had no rash or any other nasty surprises after use. It hurt a bit more around some of the more sensitive areas like the ankles, back of the knees, and higher up the legs, but this is the same with waxing so no surprise there.So far, the results have meant less in-between hair removal but I’ve had to shave to clean up a few areas as it missed some of them. I would be willing to put this down to the fact that I’m a novice using an epilator for the first time and give the product the benefit of the doubt on this occasion.All in all a great start for the product and a happy customer here. I’ll be posting an update later this week after further use of the other gadgets it comes with and the other attachments (watch this space).

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.

Ow but wow

Ok so I am a complete novice when it comes to epilating. I had no idea what to expect. The product is great; loads of useful interchangeable parts which really helped to prep my skin and make me feel great, even without epilating. However, epilating HURTS! I followed the instruction to the letter but it was still more painful than I was anticipating. BUT I was impressed with the results. So soft. So much better than shaving, and it lasted longer too. I needed a good, cooking moisturiser after, which really helped. After the first couple of times, the pain seemed slightly less, so I think I'll get used to it! It's definitely worth sticking with it though. Good luck girls!

Epilator first time user

Ok so this was my first time using an Epilator, so I was a little scared. I read through the user guide which was pretty simple to follow after going through all the extra gadgets. When turning the Epilator on the noise did scare me slightly, as did the rotating section. So it did take me a few seconds to build up the courage to put it against my skin. I'm not going to lie my first go didn't go as I'd of liked, it did hurt, a lot! It does warn you in the user guide that it may cause pain, but this will diminish considerably with repeated use, (let's hope this is the case) I will keep trying over the next few weeks, But so far I'm not a fan. I know they say pain is beauty, but as it stands I'm sticking to a razor.

Ouch to start with

As a first time user to this I was expecting pain . I tried it on my legs first. Ow! You have to get over the fact it does sting to start with. It took a while to do one leg and I nearly decided to shave the other but I decided against it. My legs are smooth (even though I seem to have missed a few bits) but smooth they are. It will be good to see how long it lasts. I haven't yet tried all the others components but I will as I think this will be great. You need to give yourself time to use it but that's maybe because I had to ignore the sting. Great gadget and will definitely keep using it plus it's so easy to clean which is good [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
