Review of "Braun 5580 Silk-Epil Body & Face"
I decided it was time to retire my old silkepil which had done me 12 years service and treat myself to a new one. I have been very impressed with it so far, it does a great job and there have definitely been design improvements since my old one came out.
The best improvement is doubling the number of tweezers on the head which speeds things up a lot. It does come with the original head too, plus an extra narrow head for under arms, bikini line etc, so there is a lot more in the set than there was.
Also included are a couple of new head guards, the original massaging one to reduce the ouch, one designed to pull the skin slightly to speed things up, and one which reduces the amount of head in contact with the skin for facial depilation. All that and a ice pack and mitt too!
The people at braun have really thought this one out well, the unit is more comfortable to hold, less brutal to use and the LED "headlight" on it makes it easy to spot stray hairs that would have been missed otherwise. I noticed that I didnt have as much of the "plucked chicken" look after using it as my old one gave either, so its much gentler on the skin.
It isnt cheap at just under £70, but it is worth upgrading from the next one down, you get a LOT more for the extra £10 in price. Given the years of service my old one gave me, you could easily spend that on razors, wax strips, depilatory creams etc in that time. Plus the brand is a good one, my old one got retired not because it was faulty, I just wanted to upgrade to a newer model.
