What’s in the box? This is a gift box containing the Silk-épil 7 Bonus Edition epilator, a sonic facial cleansing brush and Olay skin prep wipes.
Once I opened the box there’s more than you expect inside. There is the epilator attachment, 2 extra attachments to make hair removal easier on small areas like underarms / face. I was really surprised that there is also a different attachment which is a razor / lady shave. This also has an extra guard attachment that you can use to take the hairs to the recommended length of 5mm. The last little parcel in the box is a carry bag – really useful as I was thinking that I would end up losing some parts!
SONIC FACIAL BRUSH
I was a bit sceptical about sonic facial brushes. This has changed my opinion. The soft rotating brush has 2 speeds. Used with a cleanser or facial brush it feels gentle but thorough. You can feel the difference with the sonic waves that are cleaning the skin more thoroughly. I’ve used it every day since it was delivered and my complexion is brighter.
SILK EPIL 7 EPILATOR
This epilator is the Rolls Royce in epilators. My current epilator is about 15 years old and not a well-known make. The difference is AMAZING Firstly it has a swivel head so it us really easy to remove hairs and keep the correct angle. It is fast and thorough and hurts less as the cover on the head pulls the skin taught. There is the genius addition of a light which really helps show up little hairs. The 2 shields which you use when doing smaller areas make it precise. The life when fully charged is around 40 minutes which is plenty of time (my old one only lasted long enough to do 1 leg!) The shaver attachment is excellent. Most people would own a separate lady shave so this is a great extra.
The instructions are clear and easy to follow for anyone who hadn’t used an epilator before.
I would definitely recommend this to any of my friends. It would also make a great gift. You get a lot of value for the £99.99 price tag.
The only thing I think they should make clear is you need to buy a 2 pin plug adapter.
