Until this year epilation was pretty far down my league table of preferred hair removal methods. If fact, it was was at the bottom with home waxing (sticky, torturous) and those weird little disks that basically sandpaper your legs - remember those?
But then a twist of fate led me to bring the Braun Silk Epil 9 home to test on what turned out to be the week before lockdown. Suddenly I had bags of time and the inclination to try every beauty gadget I'd ever stashed away in my house.
I had previously tried epilating and rejected it for obvious reasons - time-consuming, self inflicted pain. But there's nothing like having zero social life to steel the girders for long-game beauty gains. And guess what? I really fell for this device. Is it painful? Er, yes a bit. No device that yanks your hair out is 100% pain free, so don't believe any claims otherwise. But thanks to it's waterproof design I was able to use it in a hot bath, which along with inbuilt massage rollers makes the world of difference in sensation. It also has a wide head that grips the tiniest hairs and exfoliating brushes that smooth my skin. Even better, the Braun Silk Epil 9 comes with an electric shaver for days when I don't have time, or the pain threshold,for epilation.
Invariably, these days are around my time of the month.
This device has honestly converted me. if you fancy giving it a go you'll need an Amazon Prime membership to get this great deal - so sign up for a free, 30-day trail with Amazon below.
