Today’s beauty-driven society has enriched our lives with numerous hair removal tools, which can be categorized as either “root” or “surface” hair removal methods.
Methods that remove hair above the skin level – think electric shavers, wet razors, and depilatory creams – fall into the “surface” category and are generally the most popular options for both men and women.
Methods that remove the hair from below the surface of the skin – think waxing, Intense Pulsed Light systems, threading, and epilators – fall into the “root” category and offer far better results when compared with any “surface” method.
So why are “root” removal methods so effective?
Well, that because they remove the entire hair from its root, as opposed to simply cutting it. This means that the hair follicle has to restart the growth of a new hair at stage one, which takes much longer to grow back, and because the hair has been removed from below the skin, the result in much smoother and hairless skin.
And today, I want to introduce you to a “root” machine that is fast and effective – the electric epilator.
When it comes to choosing an epilator for yourself, it is important to pick one that is safe, reliable, and easy-to-use. One that makes your comfort a priority during the hair removal exercise is exactly what you should be aiming for!
The Braun Silk Epil 9 has been voted best epilator for the past 2 years. A women’s top of the line epilator that operates with supreme efficiency and speed of hair removal, with a head that is 40% wider than previous models; this translates into a larger area being covered by the epilator as it removes the hair, with much fewer strokes of the epilator being required, eventually.
It also comes with 6 extras, each offering their own function to contribute to a hair removal regime that is as comfortable, customizable and easy to carry out as possible.
Comfort and quality come first with the Braun Silk Epil 9 and through our review of the hair removal product, we aim to shed light on some of its features and elaborate on these.
Key Features of the Braun Silk Epil 9 Review
6 Extras with the Epilator Device
Equipped with six extras, this epilator ensures that you can customise your own hair removal experience. Maximum skin contact is ensured by an efficiency cap, so you never “miss a spot” and you can also choose to use the precision cap, which targets hair in smaller areas.
With a shaver head and trimmer cap attached, your epilator can be turned into a proper electric shaver and a charging stand makes sure your device is always charged and ready to use. The high-frequency massage cap makes for an extra gentle epilation process, while the facial cap helps remove excess facial hair. There is also the skin contact cap, which is flexible and can adapt to your body contours, including sensitive areas, for a comfortable and successful epilating experience.
Comfort gets a special place in this epilator, with a variety of features coming together to make for the most comfortable possible hair removal experience. The device comes with an inbuilt high-frequency massage system; this helps to soothe the plucking sensation by stimulating the skin.
Pivoting Head and Skin Contour Adaptation
The head of the epilator is extremely versatile and can easily adapt to the various contours of your body, or maximum efficiency even in hard-to- reach areas. Another feature adding comfort would be the skin contour adaptation, which makes sure the epilator follows the natural lines and curves of your body, and runs smoothly over your skin for maximum comfort.
Wet and Dry Options
The special wet and dry technology that this epilator uses makes it totally waterproof for cordless epilation. This epilator can be used either in the bath or the shower. It is just a matter of getting used to the sensation, and after extensive use in water, the process becomes practically painless.
Active or pulsating vibrations emanating from the epilator gently soothe the skin from which the hair has been removed, and it aims to reduce or eliminate discomfort or pain as much as possible.
This Braun Silk-épil epilator comes fitted out with a smartlight that sheds light on the finest and shortest strands of hair, so you’re never left with a clump on your arm you might have overlooked and are ensured a fuss-free hair removal experience.
MicroGrip Tweezer Technology
The MicroGrip Tweezer technology is able to reach and remove hair that is about four times shorter and finer than other hair removal methods like waxing can. With a head that is 40% wider, this also means that a larger area of skin is being covered. Setting the benchmark in the epilation industry, the effects of this device can last up to 4 weeks with just a few strokes!
Customizable Speed Settings
With this epilator, you get to choose your own pace. The device comes with two-speed settings so that you can toggle between them depending on what your requirement is. The first speed is great for slow epilation, especially if you are using it to groom sensitive or hard-to-reach areas. The second speed, on the other hand, provides quick and efficient epilation, perfect for clearing up areas such as the legs before heading out for the evening.
The inbuilt battery that this epilator comes with is rechargeable and can provide the user with up to 40 straight minutes of cordless use at full charge. It charges to capacity in one hour flat.
We hope our review has managed to shed light on some of the most interesting features this epilating device has to offer and why it is worth purchasing. With a combination of cutting-edge technology and a special priority given to comfort, this epilator makes hair removal a much easier affair.
