When I received the Silk-épil 5 epilator from Braun a few months ago, I was impressed. I’ve become a big fan of epilators as they make hair removal a once a week affair unlike shaving which I have to do every other day.
This month, Braun sent me their latest epilator, the Silk-épil 9. It claims to give faster and more precise epilation than other Braun epilators. While I found it to be more precise than my Silk-épil 5, I couldn’t tell if it was faster or not.
It works in the bath or shower or it can be used dry, which is great if you’re in a hurry or when you’re in the middle of a Netflix marathon.
The epilator features pulsating active vibrations for an extra gentle sensation and the pivoting head smoothly adapts to body contours for more comfort and efficiency.
I also love the fact that the smartlight reveals even the finest hair for extra thorough hair removal – stubble has no chance to rear its prickly head!
The epilator also came with four extras: a facial cleansing brush, a high frequency massage cap, a skin contact cap and a charging stand for an always charged device.
To be honest, I’m not fussed about having different caps but at least the options are there for when I fancy a change.
The facial brush was excellent. It removed make-up, impurities and was far more efficient than manual cleansing.
In addition, the brush refined and exfoliated my skin meaning that there was no need for separate exfoliating products – I could simply use with my facial wash. What’s more, it’s 100 per cent waterproof!
Overall, the Silk-épil pil 9 looked and performed superbly. It glided smoothly onto my skin and did a brilliant job of removing even the shortest of hairs. Of course, it wasn’t a pain-free experience but the pivoting head made it a lot more bearable. Thumbs up from me, Braun!
