Basic Information About This Product:
The Braun Silk-Epil Wet and Dry Epilator comes with a travel drawstring bag, a charger and five detachable heads. It has two speed settings and a light which comes on when the epilator is turned on.
The Braun Silk-Epil Wet and Dry Epilator was my first ever epilator. Normally I shave to remove any unwanted hair, but I wanted to try out an epilator as they pull the hair from the roots, which means it takes longer for the hair to grow back. It's similar to waxing, which I have had done in the past and loved the results, but I though an epilator might be less time consuming and messy…..boy was I wrong!
I decided to try it out on my legs first, so I could see exactly what I was doing. It took me around an hour to do ONE full leg as I had to keep going over the same bit to pick up the hairs the epilator had missed! I ended up shaving the other leg as I couldn't be bothered wasting another hour.
I then tried it out on my underarms. Again the epilator didn't seem to be picking up the hairs very well and when it did decided to pick up hairs, it would cut my arm and leave it bleeding! It also left horrible spots where ever I used it.
Charging time for the Epilator is a whole day which will give you up to two hours charge time. A red light will show when it's running out, but you can tell anyway as the motor gets slower and quieter.
The only good thing about this epilator is the light. I wish every razor and lady shave came with one, it's great!
Overall I would not recommend this Epilator at all and it's defiantly not worth the £129.99 it costs.
