Braun Silk-epil 7 SkinSpa Review: Double the beauty for unbeatable results & Giveaway

If you ask me to name a brand which associates with epilators, I will definitely answer Braun. This is because the first Epilator that I have ever owned is from Braun. Seriously, I cannot remember exactly the model Name but I do remember that it is quite easy to operate. That is why I am quite excited to review this new dual purpose Epilator Beauty Gadget from Braun-Braun Silk-epil 7 SkinSpa.

When I first opened up the Packaging Box of Braun Silk-epil 7 SkinSpa , I am a bit overwhelmed by the number of attachments or rather parts available inside the Plastic Packet.

At that very moment, I really thought that I have to spend at least half an hour to figure out how to attach the various parts together. Being a lady, I admit that I am not that Gadget Savvy but I am glad that the operating manual actually comprises a couple of pictures to show me the correct way to attach the various Epilators and Exfoliation heads.

Basically, there are 2 different types of functions that this gadget will offer namely, epilation and exfoliation.

Expilator Head, Shaver Brush, Exfoliation Brush
I do welcome this dual usage of the single G Silk-epil 7 SkinSpa as it means that I can use just 1 single Beauty device to remove hair and exfoliate the dead skin cells from my body.  Notice that there are 3 different heads for epilation, 

1 unique head for shaving as well as 1 exfoliation brush. It may seem a bit confusing at first but once I have figured out the various functions of the SkinSpa,  I will naturally know which attachment head I should be using. For your information, epilation has 3 heads-one to be used on the legs, another one to be used on sensitive skins such as underarm and bikini line and the third one is to remove the facial hairs from the face. 

Use on :Legs
Use On :Sensitive Areas such as underarms

Use on : Face

As for the other 2 functions there is only 1 head each for both the shaving and the exfoliation usages. Please note that the exfoliation brush is being developed for full body usage but it cannot be used on the face.

I shall not mention about the technical specifications of this gadget as you can read from the product descriptions above. This product may seem a bit costly at $219 but I really like its exfoliating effects. The bristles of the exfoliating head are quite gentle on the skin. And after the usage of the Skinspa (with the exfoliating brush), my skin feels so smooth and silky. Now, I need not have to use body scrub to remove the dead skin cell from my body. In long run such as 2 years time, the option of buying the Skinspa will definitely be cheaper than buying the Body Scrub which costs around $30 per Tube. Not to mention that I can also Epilate and Shave off my body hair at the same time. In my opinion, the Skinspa is definately effective in removing/triming my hair without any pain sensations. Overall, it is quite an enjoyable experience in using the Braun Silk-epil 7 SkinSpa.

Hi. Do you know where I can get this in singapore? I've visited a few best denki outlets but they don't sell :( do you know any specific outlets that sell this model? It's greatly appreciated.

Hi Rin,

Thanks for dropping by. If you cannot find it at Best Denki, maybe you can check out Courts or Harvey Norman. Alternatively, you can also choose to buy online at Zalora Website:http://www.zalora.sg/Silk-Epil-7-Skin-Spa-115179.html

Hope that helps,
