I’ve always wanted to try an epilator but the main thing that put me off was the expense. Not the expense as such more the expensive if I didn’t use it.. and I had no idea whether I would until I bought one. Dilemma. Well I was lucky enough to be sent this new Silk-Epil 7 from Braun just before Christmas so I can finally tell you.. epilating hurts like a m****r f****r and I will NOT be doing that again.. BUT there are so many other uses for this beauty gadget!
1. I may not be able to epilate my legs but I CAN epilate my chin! That’s right I have many hairs on my chinny chin chin and at almost 28 I dread to imagine the beard I’ll have when I’m in my old age. It’s realy effective in that area and since I’m used to plucking there I can handle to pain. To be honest I could handle to pain on my legs if it actually made them smooth but if you were considering one for your bikini line.. don’t even go there.. I made an audible yelp from the shower, haha.
2. There is a brush attachment. Think of it like a Clarisonic for your body.. in fact I think they make one of those, don’t they? You can use the brush dry or wet (the whole thing is waterproof by the way) and I have loved using it before I shave my legs for the smoothest finish.
3. There is a shaver attachment. Sorry if we’re verging on TMI territory here but grooming is part of most of our beauty routines and I can’t imagine what you’d use this attachment for other than ‘personal grooming’ – unless of course you let your legs grow forest-like over the winter and you need some help before you go in with the bic.. haha.. just the image lol.
Overall although I’m not planning on using the epliator on my legs anytime soon if I’d bought this I wouldn’t have been too annoyed that I didn’t love that feature because it has so many others that make it worth the money. If like me you aren’t sure but want to try epilating I’d definitely suggest this model over a one trick pony that would just be gathering dust in my drawer now.
