Care-free summer || Q&A Braun Silk-épil 9 Wet & Dry SkinSpa

For as long as I can remember (or for as long as I've been told women shouldn't have body hair) I've been struggling with choosing the right tool and then struggling with irritated skin due to wrong razor choice or weird ingredients of shaving creams. I already wrote about my newest hair-removal tool here, but because I got a lot of questions about the Braun Silk-epil 9 epilator and what I noticed while using it, I'm answering all those question in today's post. Is it worth it? Read on!

Does it hurt?
Once again – no. You get a bit of a weird feeling when first using it, but I wouldn't describe it as pain. You get used to it and, believe it or not, it feels good once you've tried it. It has two different speed settings – start with the slower one and once it feels okay, start using the faster, second option.

How long does the skin stay smooth?
Okay, my first use wasn't as perfect and as 'smooth' as I thought it would be, but it's because I was doing it wrong. Once I realized the SensoSmart technology needs slow slides across the skin so it can catch every little hair, I started enjoying my epilation and doing it slowly. I can now say my skin stays completely smooth for about two weeks, which is amazing compared to razors, creams and other hair-removal products.
I noticed my hair started growing slower, there's a smaller amount of them once they start to peak out and I don't have the little dots on my skin like I always had after shaving.

Is it really safe to use it in the shower?
Totally! The model I have (Silk-epil 9 Wet&Dry SkinSpa) is specially designed to use on dry skin or in the shower, because the hot water also makes the use of an epilator easier.

What about the in-grown hair?
Ahhh, remember all those times you've had an in-grown hair after shaving? So annoying! To be honest, I haven't noticed any in-growns since I've been regularly using my epilator, so that's a big plus!
Something that's gonna help you prevent irritated skin, in-grown hair and dryness are aaaall the extras you get along with this epilator, a total of 13 different nozzles! From a massage and peeling nozzle to a trimmer and sensitive areas  adjustments.

How do you charge it, does it have to be plugged-in all the time?
You get a little stand for your epilator, to which the charger can be plugged-in. You can't use it when it's charging, so every use is cable-free! The battery is full in about an hour or so, but the battery life is amazing. I've been using it quite a lot, but only charged it twice. It's recommended to charge it before every use (just to avoid dead battery during the epilation), but I wanted to test the durability as well.

Would you recommend it to someone that has never used an epilator before?
Yes! This was also my first epilator, and although I wasn't sure how I'm going to handle the pain, it's one of the best decisions this summer! Doesn't hurt, will last longer than any razor, has different nozzles to make your life and hair-removal even easier and it's great even for travelling as it comes with a bag.

Odkar pomnim,  smo lahko dekleta brale in poslušale o tem, da ženske pač ne smemo imeti dlak drugje kot na glavi. S skrbjo, kako se znebiti vseh ostalih, bojda neželenih dlak, je prišlo tudi iskanje pravega orodja za depilacijo in britje, večina od njih pa je mojo kožo pustila razdraženo, suho in posuto z rdečimi pikicami. O svojem najnovejšem pripomočku za odstranjevanje dlak sem že pisala tukaj, danes pa odgovarjam na vsa vprašanja o Braunovem Silk-epil 9 epilatorju.

Ali boli?
Na to vprašanje sem že odgovorila, a naj ponovim – ne! Sprva lahko govorimo o malce neprijetnem, novem občutku, ki pa ga ne bi opisala kot bolečino. Nanj se navadiš in, verjameš ali ne, na koncu je občutek kar prijeten. Na voljo sta dve nastavitvi hitrosti, zato začni s prvo, počasnejšo opcijo. Ko se navadiš, pa lahko daš v drugo prestavo. 😉

Kako dolgo koža ostane gladka?
Čisto iskreno, nad prvo uporabo nisem bila popolnoma navdušena, a sem ugotovila, da sem epilator uporabljala narobe. SilkEpil 9 ima vgrajeno SensoSmart tehnologijo in lučko, ki ti pomaga, a le, če epilator uporabljaš s počasnejšimi potegi. Le tako bo ujel vsako dlako, tudi tisto naaajmanjšo. Moja koža ostane gladka približno dva tedna, kar je v primerjavi z ostalimi metodami odstranjevanja dlak vrhunsko. Opazila sem, da dlake rastejo počasneje in tudi ko prikukajo na plano, jih je manj, saj rastejo različno hitro. In tiste nadležne rdeče pikice, ki sem jih imela po britju? Preteklost!

Je uporaba v vodi res varna?
Seveda! SilkEpil 9 Wet&Dry SkinSpa je zasnovan posebej za uporabo na suhi koži in pod vodo. Tudi zato, da je njegova uporaba lažja, saj se koža pod vročo vodo omehča.

Kaj pa vraščene dlake?
Joj, imaš tudi ti težave z njimi po britju? Kako nadležno! Odkar uporabljam epilator, zaenkrat še nisem opazila nobene vraščene dlake, kar je velik plus.
Preventiva za zoprne vraščene dlake pa so tudi vsi dodatki in nastavki – skupaj jih je kar 13 - ki pridejo v kompletu z epilatorjem. Masaža, piling in nastavki za občutljivejše predele.

Kako se polni, mora biti ves čas priklopljen?
Poleg epilatorja in dodatkov je v paketu tudi priročno stojalo, ki je hkrati tudi polnilna postaja. Med polnjenjem ga ne moreš uporabljati, je pa zato vsaka uporaba brezžična!
Napolni se v približno eni uri, zdrži pa zelooo dolgo! Odkar ga imam, sem ga  veliko uporabljala, a polnila zgolj dvakrat. Priporočeno je, da se polni pred vsako uporabo, da se izognemo prazni bateriji, a sem želela preizkusiti tudi vzdržljivost.

Bi ga priporočila tudi tistim, ki epilatorja še niso uporabljali?
Vsekakor! Tudi sama sem se prvič srečala z epilacijo in kljub temu, da sem se prve uporabe kar malo bala, lahko zdaj rečem, da je bila to enih boljših odločitev za poletje.
Ne boli, zdrži mnogo dlje kot katerakoli britvica, ima različne nastavke, ki bodo olajšali odstranjevanje dlak, hkrati pa je super za potovanje, saj vključuje tudi potovalno vrečko.
