- Good list of attachments
- Facial cleansing brush is easy and effective
- Very little pain experienced
- As with other series 9 epilators, no storage pouch for attachments
As with the version with the exfoliation brush, I’m a big fan of this Braun series 9 epilator. It seems that for once all the attachments and technology actually work effectively rather than just being for show or marketing. You can use this in the bath or shower or dry and you get 40 minutes of use from just an hour of charge. It’s easy to clean and the shaver head means you don’t need any more razor blades. The epilator works quickly on really tiny hairs without much pain to speak of and sensitive areas can be done fairly painlessly in the shower with the skin contact cap.
Overall, this is a worthwhile investment and you only need the SkinSpa version if you’re in need of an exfoliator too.
The Braun Silk Epil 9 9-561 Wet & Dry Cordless Epilator with 6 Extras Attachments comes with:
- 1x Silk-épil 9 epilator
- 1x Facial cleansing brush
- 1x Shaver head
- 1x Trimmer cap
- 1x High frequency massage attachment
- 1x Skin contact cap
- 1x Facial head/cap
- 1x Charging stand
Unlike the Braun Silk-épil 9 9-961 Wet & Dry Cordless Epilator & Exfoliation system with 6 Extra Attachments, this epilator package is aimed just at epilating and not exfoliation as well. The main difference between the two products is the absence of the exfoliation attachment which makes this package particularly good for those who already have their exfoliation needs covered and don’t want to double up.
The attachments that come with this epilator allow it to be used as a shaver, a facial cleanser, a trimmer and on sensitive areas with the skin contact cap. It’s a real all-in-one body hair system. As part of Braun’s latest epilation series, this device uses all of Braun’s newest technology.
For those who are focusing on an epilator that hurts the least, this one is right up your street. Not only can it pluck super miniscule hairs with its MicroGrip technology but its high frequency massage cap is magic on the skin and you’ll hardly feel any pain.
This epilator can also be used dry or wet which is a huge bonus as epilating in the shower always reduces pain and irritation if you ask me. It’s cordless design and rechargeable batteries give 40 minutes of use for just a single hour of charging. This is yet another thing that puts Braun above the rest. The wet and dry capability also makes the heads quick and easy to wash without removing from the device.
The wider head (40% wider than previous models) means epilation is very fast and efficient and it glides around contours with surprising ease despite the new size. The facial cap also works really well for those who want to remove facial hair and the new width of the epilator doesn’t impede this at all surprisingly. It’s almost painless on the face and it doesn’t get much better than this.
While the price may put some off, you need to think about it from a long-term point of view. The shaver head means that you don’t need to buy any more razor blades, the facial head means you don’t need to bleach or tweeze and the facial cleanser means your skin will be cleaner and healthier. Considering this should last for years if you take care of it, it’s really a bargain. The main bonus though is that it really is almost painless and who can put a price on that?
