 Braun Silk Epil 9

The sun is out and its time for the pins to finally make an appearance after months of being covered up. I have always shaved never waxed or epilated but that all changed this week when I tried out the Braun Silk Epil 9Pain and I are not friends and I actively avoid anything that may inflict it so I approached epilating with some unnecessary trepidation. I used it in the bath as the Silk-epil 9 is waterproof and my pores would be open which makes it easier to epilate. It also meant I could exfoliate right after because ingrowns are a no no!  You are aware you are epilating and there is a little discomfort but it’s not the tear inducing variety and after a while you get used to it trust me! I have fine hair and it was still picked up so I’m very impressed this is apparently down to the MicroGrip technology. 

Included in the box is an exfoliation brush head, a shaver head, a trimmer cap, a high frequency massage cap, a skin contact cap and a facial cap.

Be sure to exfoliate afterwards. This is something I already do with a manual brush but the exfoliation head is definitely better.


The attachments
  • Massage head – helps to soothe
  •  Shaver and trimmer – The trimmer is s great for your bikini line
  •  Body contact cap –  Helps when epilating tricky bits
  •  Face cap – I’d just had my face threaded but I’ll update this when I finally try it out
  •  Mini brush –  makes it easy to clean the attachment heads and base
  •  Sonic exfoliation brush – helps keep skin smooth and gets rid of dead skin; Use on  the arms, legs and décolletage

The good:

  • Regrowth takes longer than shaving 
  • Cordless
  • Built in light so you can spot strays
  • Economical- no more disposable razors or trips to wax
  • Stops you needing so many devices. Especially with the extra attachments.
  • It didn’t irritate my skin (I have fairly sensitive skin)
  • Waterproof
  • Skin Adapting Pivoting Head
  • Wider head means faster epilation (having never epilated before I can’t say but it’s being buzzed about online) 


The bad:

  • You can’t use the unit and charge it at the same time. However a red light does come on when the battery is low
  • Charger – requires a shaver point, or an adapter for 2 pin to UK plug socket (I have a point in my bathroom but am unsure how common these are)
