I’m not shy to wear bare legs pretty much all year round and to wear dresses and skirts often because my legs are one part of my body which I have always cherished and always looked after.
Here is something I have tried out recently as a new part of my ‘leg-routine’. Usually I just grab a razor so this was a new venture!
This is the Braun Silk-epil 9, Now, I was a little apprehensive at first to use an epilator because i’ve heard quite a few stories about them being quite painful so I held my breath…and just took the dive.
Now its not painless, but it was nowhere near as bad as I thought it might be and not as bad as the stories I had heard.
It has two speeds, it also has a bright LED light which makes it easier to see exactly what area you are covering. You can use it dry or wet (I’m yet to try it in the shower). I think the reason it is more pain-free (they also say the more you use it the less pain you will feel in the long run) is because of the 40% wider head – it plucks more hairs than others, so ultimately you don’t have to use it as long.
This one also has new micro-grip tweezer technology – wider, longer tweezers which increase the plucking performance while curved geometry delivers closer skin contact.
It features a sonic exfoliation technology and high density brush. More than 3000 micro-vibrations per minute exfoliate your skin four times more effectively than a manual treatment alone. 10,000 fine bristles gently sweep away dead skin cells for renewed skin appearance.
What I find to be the most useful feature is that it plucks up 4x shorter hairs than wax. I hate that in-between growth time and to just whip an epilator out when you really need to be silky and smooth is brilliant.
More benefits of this product include the high frequency massage system: pulsating active vibrations help to give a gentler epilation. Also the skin adapting pivoting head: The flexible head can pivot by 30 degrees while adapting to the body’s contours, there’s also now a more gentle speed setting which is great if you’re new to epilating.
Let me know what you all think of this too – I for one am genuinely glad i’ve ventured into the world of epilators because they’re not as scary as they may seem and that is gospel because i’d hate to mislead many people if they really were extremely painful!
The Silk-spil 9 is available at Boots and Retails from £149.99
