Impressive bit of kit!

Being new to Epilation I was slightly nervous about trying this as I have only ever used a razor for hair removal. One receipt of the box I was very impressed with the overall look of the packaging, it was compact, nearly packaged and looked of high quality. Before trying it out I decided to fully read the instructions, and realised that the Silk-épil needed charging before use. Luckily I have a shaver charger in my bathroom, so didn't have to go out and buy a shaver adaptor. It didn't take long to fully charge, about an hour, so I had time to build up the courage to try it out. First I attached the body massage attachment, used a sugar scrub and in the shower I massaged the scrub into my skin, there are 2 speeds and after doing this my skin felt really soft. I had read that being a first time epilator it was maybe wise to use it on wet skin so I started on my legs. I will admit that I found it extremely painful on the front of my shins, I used it on the slower setting to start with. After I got used to the sensation I got a little bit braver and tried it on the high speed setting. It glided over the wet skin very easily and although slightly uncomfortable it was not unbearable. The knees area hurt slightly more, maybe because the skin had now dried, so I went back into the shower to wet my legs again. It took about 10 minutes to do each leg, my skin felt very smooth and there were only a very few very short hairs left. I noticed that I had slight skin irritation around the knee are ( small red spots, but these did disappear after an hour or so, even if the skin still felt slightly tender)I then decided to try epilating my under arms. This was a lot more painful than I had expected to be honest so after only doing one arm I swapped over to the razor attachment and used that to do the other underarm. The result was as smooth as if I'd used a razor blade. I will state that my underarm felt very tender for the rest of the day after using the epilator under my arm)The following day my skin still felt really soft and the tingling sensation on my knees and under my arms had gone down, as well as the small spots on my knees. I continued to use the body brush attachment and the massage brush all week in the shower and my skin felt much smoother. I also used the epilator with the smaller attachment to use on a small amount of facial hair ( which I normally have waxed) this didn't hurt at all ( maybe because I'm used to having these areas waxed?)The result was the same if not better than my normal monthly waxing routine and I will definitely be using this again instead of paying for waxing. I'm sure that once I get used to the sensation/slight discomfort on other ares of my body then I will become more confident in using this on a weekly basis. I also found a small toiletries bag that held all the product as well as the charging cable, and I found it easier to keep everything together. I am very impressed with the whole product as a whole and I will definitely give this 5 stars. Value for money considering the money that can be saved over the year in lieu of waxing.

'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.]

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!

Great epilator and extras

I have been epilating for quite a few year now and I didn't realise until I got this epilator how tired and a bit out of date my old one was. The epilator is smooth to use and pretty quick in the shower; I personally don't think it takes much longer than shaving. On that note it is a bonus to have the shaver head attachment, particularly for those areas where I still find epilating a touch too painful. I used the exfoliation brush and thought it was a good addition but I do often tend to be in a bit of a rush and didn't quite have the patience to use exfoliate all over. So far not much regrowth but I would need a little more time to fully comment. Based on my experience I would definitely recommend this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A little bit of luxury! Amazing!

So it must be over a decade since I've used an epilator and I thought I'd been put off for life! But then the wonderful opportunity came along to try the new Braun silk-epil 9 model. Firstly it looks beautiful - sleek white and sparkly, secondly is very easy to use and lastly it's got every adapter you could wish for. I used it in the shower and I'll admit it was a bit stingy to start with but no more than my usual salon wax. It leaves my legs super smooth and I really love the wee cleaning brushes and massage tools which help prevent ingrowing hairs and they are perfect at removing my flaky dry winter skin!! The only downside is you do need to have a plug adapter to charge it out with a shaver 2 pin port, but the one I got was really cheap in the supermarket. Overall I highly recommend and although it's pricey it's well worth it - it will save me a future in salon waxing visits. (Which are a bit of a hassle with a young family). Love, love, love - thank you Braun!!

A great product

The Braun Silk-epil 9 is a product I had thought about ourhading for some time. I was sick of constantly shaving or having to book waxing appointments so looked into epilators. After getting this product I can say that I am now converted to the ways of epilating. Although it does hurt to begin with you soon get used to it and after continued use you don't notice it as much. The included exfoliating is great for buffing away dead skin and also helps with ingrowing hairs and the massager is lovely- I look forward to using that part the most!The included electric shaver is also brilliant for ensuring the hairs are the required length before epilating and the light also helps to make sure you catch any stray hairs.A great product that works and will ultimately save me a fortune in waxing.

Great shaver, but a little ouchy!

I have until now never used an epilator, so was keen to try it as my mum uses one and is always saying how much better it is. So first impressions of the product are great, the packaging is appealing to look at and doesn't contain too much in the way of un-recyclable material, and no fiddly twist ties. The Braun Silk-Epil 9 itself is compact and feminine, the rose gold colouring gives it that little extra feel of luxury. It has a light which makes seeing little pesky hairs easier. Although I feel this could do with being a touch bigger. It is also very light, and doesn't feel clunky and heavy in your hand. So, I tried the product in the bath for the first time, as I figured open pores would make it easier and less painful. I'm very glad I did as it was quite uncomfortable, being the first time I'd used one. I have quite dry skin, so I tried the exfoliator after my first use which is a fantastic addition. I used it along with some exfoliating shower gel and after only one use it have beautifully smooth legs!I have stuck with it and my second try was much less painful, especially as I exfoliated before I epilated this time - top tip from my mum!I've not yet been brave enough to epilate my under arms, so I used the shaver head. This too is a brilliant addition, it gets super close without causing any skin irritation at all. It too can be used wet or dry, handy if you need a quick trim before a night out. The battery seems to last quite a while, as I have used it on four occasions and have only just now needed to charge it. Overall this product is fantastic, and gives huge value for money. The sheer amount of accessories it comes with, the fact it can be used wet or dry, plus being a shaver and an epilator in one makes it a must have. I would certainly have no issues recommending this to friends and family. In fact I've already mentioned it to my mum and she's considering upgrading her old one to one of these.
