A few weeks ago I was approached by Braun to test out and review the Silk Epil 9 SkinSpa, a smart epilator with a lot of extras, designed to give you salon quality hair removal at home. The device comes in a beautiful design and is really easy to hold in your hand. The epilator - as the name says - is primarily for epilating the whole body and face, but has attachments for shaving, trimming, massage and exfoliation.

It’s important to first read the manual so you know how to use the epilator for maximum comfort. The attachments are super easy to change and the silk epil works wire free for 50 minutes when charged.

When you’re going to epilate it’s important to first exfoliate the skin. Also make sure to properly clean the epilator head after each time. If it’s your first time, maybe try it on a little part on your body first. Don’t epilate sensitive areas that get irritated quickly or areas with moles and wounds. Exfoliation is a really important step to prevent ingrown hairs, which can cause a lot of irritation (sensitive and dry skin are more prone to ingrown hairs). Epilation is something you need to get used to and might hurt the first times. After you’re done, make sure to moisturize. I personally use the epilator on my less sensitive areas, which include my upper legs and face (as I’m used to using a pincet to epilate).

The silk epic has two stands (slow and faster) and can be used dry or wet, I personally prefer to use it in the shower (the water also reduces pain). The epilator has a built in light which really helps to see the area and hairs you’re epilating and turns red (new SensoSmart technology) when you’re pushing too hard. This way you can use the epilator in the most efficient way. It also has a special attachment to use on your face.

The massage attachment feels really good and helps for better circulation and smoother skin. It can be used on its own or with an oil or gel. For me it’s not really strong enough to feel like a real massage. There are also two exfoliation heads, a softer and a more dense one. The dense brush feels really good on the body and can be used with for example a scrub or shower gel. The softer brush is meant for regular exfoliation especially in summer time. This will help your skin to get that sunny beautiful glow. I love to use these at night while taking a shower, to prepare my skin for epilation or shaving and to get smoother skin.

The razor can be set on shaving or trimming and works really well when you go against the direction of hair growth. All the attachment are also easy to clean.

If you have experience with epilators you will definitely notice the quality of this one. It’s easy to use and less painful. It’s an all-in-one device for preparation of, beautifying and epilating your skin.

For a period of 100 days you can decide to give back the product and get a full refund.
