Take Ten x Braun

April 28, 2015

Me and the Take Ten girls are back with a collab for this month! Braun have challenged us to get our legs out to show you guys how they can help you embrace unlimited fashion choices this Summer, with one of their newest products - the Braun Silk-épil 9 Epilator. Now, this was the first time I had laid my hands on an epilator, as usually I just shave, or use hair removal cream (if I'm feeling extra lazy). After constantly hearing about how painful these bad boys can be, I was definitely a bit hesitant to try mine out at first, but I really had no reason to be!

I'm not sure if you guys hear this much when it comes to experiences with epilators, but mine was absolutely fine - I loved the feeling of the hairs being plucked from their roots, as if I was tweezing them - not painful in my opinion. The epilator can be used in both wet and dry situations, so to figure out which method I preferred, I tried it on one leg under the shower, and then the other leg was dried before I began epilation on it. I would say that I preferred using the epilator wet, just because it's less likely to scratch moist skin, which I found happened on the leg that was dry.
My legs haven't felt this silky and smooth in while, so I am very impressed with this product! Braun state that this particular epilator removes 4x shorter hair than wax, so women can achieve long-lasting smooth skin for up to 4 weeks, so let's see how that goes and I will update you guys on that!

A little more information about the Braun Silk-épil 9 epilator ...

 NEW 40% Wider Head 
 It removes more hair in one stroke for faster epilation

NEW Micro-Grip Tweezer Technology 
 Wider, longer, and deeper tweezers increases the feeding and 
  plucking performance whilst the curved geometry delivers closer skin contact. The combination of 
  these two features in the new Silk-epil 9 results in Braun's most efficient epilation yet. 

New High Frequency Massage System 
Pulsating active vibrations help to give a gentler epilation 
  while it's massaging rollers stimulate the kin for virtually painless epilation (could be the reason why I  
  found the epilation quite pleasant ha).

Skin Adapting Pivoting Head  
The flexible head can now pivot by p to 30 degrees, for an even closer  
  epilation, adapting to the contours of the body, whilst the gentle speed setting is perfect for 
  beginners or sensitive areas.  

Designed to help you easily guide the epilator where you need it and light up even the 
  smallest and finest of hairs for extra thorough removal ( i found this very helpful!). 

Wet and Dry Technology 
The Braun Silk-épil 9 is water tight up to five metres, so it can also be used in 
  the bath, as well as the shower for extra comfort, and a soothing experience. 

Braun Silk-épil 9 retails for £149.99, and is available from Boots

Shirt Dress - TOPSHOP*, Turtle Neck Dress - H&M , Bag - TOPSHOP, Shoes - CONVERSE, Sunglasses - & OTHER STORIES
