I’ll start by saying that the first time I used this on dry legs, it hurt. Like the sting of a bee it hurt! But, after use, it hurts a lot less and now the Braun Silk Epil epilator is my hair removal appliance of choice.
The Silk Epil epilator contains over 40 tweezers so it plucks the hair (even if they’re only 0.5mm long) right from the root (hence the pain). This version of the epilator can be used wet or dry and I definitely recommend using it in the shower or bath as it is much less painful.
Using it in warm water improves your circulation and makes your skin less sensitive so unless you are particularly hardy, save it for the shower or bath. The epilator comes with Olay cooling wipes to prime your legs before you get epilating.
The epilator comes with various heads so it can be used anywhere on the face or body, including bikini area. It has a 2 pin plug so can only be used in a shaver socket unless you’re willing to buy an adapter.
It’s been 7 days and the prickles on my legs are just starting to come through. When you think that waxing your legs costs at least £10, and that you can use an epilator anywhere on your body, I think an epilator is a money saving product in the long term.
