We are almost playing a hide and seek game with the “Sun the great” now!, it could be sign of inviting summer soon! :)….(.I wish 🙂 and I am sure we all are wishing for….! ). so, ideally, it should soon be the time to say good bye to the jeans and release those sleeveless tops and flowery skirts from the hidden places.
And that implies, it is time to shop for the best shavers and epilators that guarantees to give a shiny, sparkly skin!:). To get me ready, there was a lovely delivery from BRAUN, the Braun Bonus Edition Epilator. We have reviewed quite a few Braun products before. See our thoughts on Braun Waterflex and Braun Sensodryer.
The Braun Bonus edition Epilator comes with the Braun Silk Epil 7 and a bonus – the sonic cleansing brush for the face. It is wet & Dry and happily ticks on the first and foremost feature I would always look for when looking for a Shaver or an Epilator.
What’s in the Box:
- Braun Silk Epil 7
- Cleansing brush for the face
- Shaver head
- Trimmer cap
- Sensitive area cap
- Facial Cap
- efficiency cap
- Cleaning brush
- 2 pin plug
- A pack of Olay Facial wipes.
First impressions on Braun Bonus edition:
- The Epilator is just the right size for the hand and has a good grip. It proves to stay in control even in water.
- Wet and dry epilator with a cleansing brush for the face definitely makes it attractive on the first look.
- Can be used in bath and shower although I may hardly use it in the bath. It is quite comfortable in the shower.
- 40 close-grip tweezers remove hairs as fine as a grain of sand (0. 5 mm) from the root to leave skin smooth for up to four weeks
- Cordless for ease of use – Something that comes a standard for any Braun products.
Advantages using the epilator in shower
Warm water relaxes and soothes your skin. It helps the pores to open up and makes it easier to plug the hair. And with the Braun Bonus Wet and Dry Epilator, you are guaranteed for a least painful epilation. I can not say it is absolutely 100% painless, but you will hardly notice the pain.
If you haven’t used the Epilator before, You will feel a little uncomfortable at first use but should get used to it over time. Use the Supplied OLAY wet wipes first and then use the epilator. It is much less painful that waxing and threading. Braun has taken care that the epilator stays gentle on the soft skin, so it first stimulates the skin before removing the hair.
It has a Pivoting head so adopts to the body shape and make the epilation process quite easy and comfortable. The soft lift tips are very helpful for those hairs that are lying down.. It does the job of lifting those hairs automatically. There are two speed settings, Extra gentle and extra efficient. If you are the first time user, I would strictly advise you to use gentle speed. The little smart light is very cool so you don’t miss a hair 🙂
Adavantages of using an Epilator
As you are not actually shaving but epliating the hair, the regrowth will take atleast 4 weeks so you will have a soft and smooth skin for quite longer than using the shaver. I am again insisting – Don’t expect a painless process if you are doing it for the first time as the actual process is plugging the hair from the root. :). Braun has more information about epilation and how to choose the right epilator – Browse their website for more advice and tips.
The brush is an extra plus to remove make up gently, smoothly and makes your skin a lot pure again. It can also be used for massaging your face if not for actual make up removal. :). This also can be used in bath or shower which is great and comes with two speeds – Fast and soft, so you can choose what’s best for your skin and face.I am quite pleased with Braun Bonus Edition Epilator and I am ready for summer! Are you!?
