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.]

Long lasting heair removal!

I have been using the Braun Silk-epil 9 for a couple of weeks now. There are a lot of attchements to figure out when you forst open the box but actually it is all quite simple. There are massage brushes and exfoliating ones, as well as a shaver and the expected epilator. I have used an epilator before and found this to be similar, but with some definite bonuses.Firstly, this one can be used in the shower which is much better than having to make a special time to use this! I also love the light so that you can see the hairs more easily. It is a little uncomfortable when being used on the legs but this settles after a minute and you get used to it. It is definitely more painful when used under the arms, but worth it as it lasts longer than shaving, my usual hair removal method. On the negatives side, I did find that a fair few hairs were missed even after going up and down my legs a number of times, however once I went back and removed them I could be confident that the hair removal would last much longer than shaving.That aside, I am very much looking forward to continuing to use this product!

Silky smooth legs

I was so excited to use my Braun Silk-épil 9. Winter had taken its toll on my legs and I'm the first to admit they needed a bit of tlc. Although my hair was over the recommended length I decided to put my big girl pants on and jump straight to it. I had a bath first to soften my skin. The initial feeling is slightly uncomfortable but this gets more barable as you keep going. A good tip is to pull the skin tight as you go along. The silk-épil tackled even the more stubborn hairs and seemed to take less time than my usual epilator. After less than 20 minutes both legs were silky smooth. Not content with that I set about using the fantastic extras that come with the product. First I used the exfoliating brush to prevent ingowing hair and this seemed to also help the slight rash I always get from epilating. I thoroughly enjoyed the deep massage head and could quiet happily do that all day. A touch of moisturiser afterwards and my legs were summer ready. All I need now is a Mediterranean sunset and a cocktail. I'll be interested to see how long it takes before regrowth and also try it on more sensitive areas. I'm still exploring my new Silk-épil and the attachments that come with it but much prefer this method to waxing. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Effortlessly silly smooth skin

Braun silk epil 9 skin spa with extras. The box is deceptively small for such a large amount of extras. As well as the epilator you get a skin cap and face cap attachment to help epilating those pesky underarm and facial areas - added to that you get 2 exfoliation brushes and a deep massage pad, a charging dock and an extra head which turns it into an electric shaver and more besides. After my delight on opening the box I wondered how I'd fare with the epilator - I'm a bit of a wuss - and epilators are usually akin to torture implements for me - not so with the Braun silk epil 9 - I followed the instructions in the comprehensive manual and found it to be pretty painless. I even popped on the facial cap and braved the epilator on a few unwanted facial hairs which shedding a tear. I used the exfoliator brush on my legs- I suffer from flaky dry skin particularly on my shins but after using the epilator and exfoliating brush they look shiny and healthy with not a flake in sight. I also tried the deep massage pad ,which claims to help improve the skins texture, on the cellulite on my thighs it felt nice to use but I couldn't say I noticed an immediate difference but I wouldn't expect to after just 1 use. I'll keep using it on my thighs and update the resultsAll in all Braun have made an amazing pain free epilator which gives silky smooth legs and added the accessories necessary to keep them that way I'm very impressed. A big thumbs up and 5 stars from me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.]

Still just as impressed after a week!

It's now been a week..... I've been using the massage pad and the skin brushes with my daily shower routine, and I have already noticed that y skin feels much smoother and less dry than normal ( I've been using a sugar scrub in the shower and then using a moisturiser with he massage pad)After using the epilator on my legs last week I've noticed that the re growth is a lot less than when I used a regular razor, The underarm that I used the epilator on, is still reasonably hair free compared to the other one ( I used the razor attachment on the right one!) so im going to be braver next time and try and use it on both underarms. The facial areas that I used the smaller attatchnentbon are still hair free, and maybe the re growth is finer hair?? Time will tell. I can honestly say that I had never been interested in trying one of these products out ( being a baby when it comes to pain!) but after trying this and using it for a week I will definitely recommend the Braun Silk épil 9 skin spa to all of my friends. How did I ever live without this gadget! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.

Amazing product

This is the first time I have tried an epilator and now I am completely hooked on this hair removal method. Firstly, the Braun Silk Epil 9 is aesthetically pleasing, characterised by a feminine, rose gold and shimmering colour. The epilator is easy to hold and has a light installed in order to allow you to visualise finer hairs. The product comes with a instructional manual. I found this useful and easy to follow and identify each component and it's functions. I was amazed by how many features the product possesses. It comes with additional heads for different areas of epilation i.e. sensitive areas, as well as a handy exfoliation setting, massager and a shaver. I have enjoyed using the exfoliation setting and have found that my skin has become a lot smoother. The massager is gentle and is a great additional feature to the product. I was concerned this product would be painful when epilating. The product can be used both dry and under water and the hair removal process was comfortable in both environments. I did find it some what painful but comfortable enough to continue with the hair removal process. The epilator has left me with very smooth skin and I am extremely pleased with the results. This epilator also leaves you with longer lasting results, compared to other hair removal products. The Braun Silk Epil 9 comes equipped with a charger and does not take long to charge. I did, however, have to buy an adaptor for the product in order to plug it in in to the standard 3 pin mains socket. The battery life is also great and lasts a long time after charging. I would definitely purchase this product in the future and recommend it to others. It is versatile and very effective. The product has a lot of features and therefore makes it value for money. I am really pleased with this product and will continue to use the Braun Silk Epil 9 in the future. [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!

Big buzz but still lots of fuzz

Despite the pain, I loved the epilator function of the silk epil so I could hardly wait til my fuzz grew back so I could test the electric razor function. Well, I was a little underwhelmed. I generally use a manual razor to achieve a close shave but this electric version literally didn't come close. I was left with less hair, but definitely not a smooth silky surface like the manual counterparts offer. The saving grace is the epilator and the buffers;the 2 stars is not meant to reflect the other functions. If I had purchased the silk epil for just the razor, then it would be a big thumbs down.
