Braun Silk Epil Xpressive - Epilate Your Way to Smoother Skin

Updated on November 12, 2012

Product Features

That's right ladies, I've found it! I am no longer cruising the hair removal aisles at the stores, I am no longer trying new products just be be firmly disappointed in the money I have wasted. I no longer go to salons and spas for expensive wax treatments. I am using the Braun Silk Epil Xpressive System, my solution to unwanted hair.

First off, I'll tell you what this little beauty can do. We are all aware of tweezing, right? Well this is a hand held tweezing machine that has 40 rotating tweezers on the head that do an incredibly impressive job on hair removal. Also, this baby can be used wet or dry, which is great, because I like to do hair removal in the bath or shower, everything gets washed down the drain that way.

Another great feature, it's not only an epilator, but also a shaver! The Braun Silk Xpressive has interchangeable heads so you can shave or trim your body hair too. Amazed? I'm not done yet. This little rechargeable machine has two speeds and has a "smartlight" which illuminates the area you're working on so you can be sure you getting every little hair. Also, there are two epilation heads to choose from; "efficiency cap", meant for beginners, it creates a smaller tweezing head, and the "massage system", which allows all tweezers to run over the skin, but has massaging rollers along the top and bottom of the head which with help reduce pain.

Starting out in Epilation

Well, needless to say, because you are pulling the hair out from the root when epilating, there is some pain involved. However, compared to waxing, I think this is a breeze. If you've never epilated before it's a good idea to prepare yourself by taking some ibuprofen or have a glass of wine beforehand.  Also, make sure your skin is free from any lotions or oils as your epilator will not be able to grip the hair as well. When I started epilating, I shaved first, and let the hair grow in for a day or so, and then got started.  It is more painful to epilate longer hair.  I exfoliate everyday in the bath or shower to avoid ingrown hairs, and once I would feel a little stubble come back, I would epilate again.  After about 3 weeks of using this product, I noticed that I didn't need to use it nearly as often, and with each epilation there was less and less pain.

Benefits of Epilation

Epilating, for me, has so many benefits over other hair removal methods. First of all, its saves money, I am not spending money on razors, creams, waxes, or salon appointments for my hair removal anymore. Secondly, I don't have to wait for the hair to be long like you do with waxing, I can get rid of my stubble right away. Finally, the results are long lasting and my hair gets thinner and thinner with every use.

So if your still shopping the hair removal aisles looking for the right product for you, just look at the reviews of this product on Amazon or Google it. Yes, it might be a little money to shell out at first, but it'll be well worth it when you see how much your saving overall, and how great the results are. Give this one a try.
