When I began blogging just over a year ago I knew nothing about reviews, events or sponsored posts. I still see myself as a novice and always feel a huge sense of gratitude and I think "I am not worthy" when contacted by PR's asking me to review lovely things or attend fab events.
Before Christmas I was invited to the Braun SkinSpa "Mummy Me Time" event. Unfortunately living in the Shropshire countryside is pretty limiting and as it was in London I was sadly unable to attend. However Nath and I were kindly sent two big boxes of goodies to take part in the Braun His & Hers challenge at home instead.
It was like Christmas had come early! We were both sent a dressing gown each, I was sent the Braun SkinSpa Silk Epil 7 to review along with an Oral B electric toothbrush, Wella hair mask and some Max Factor makeup. Nath received the Braun Cool Tec shaver to review along with a washbag and some Nioxin hair treatment..
The SkinSpa Silk Epil 7 retails at £169.99 and comes with a detachable exfoliation head. What I liked the most about this epilator is that it can be used wet or dry and can remove hairs as short as 0.5mm! The epilator comes with a number of different "heads" including ones for facial hair and sensitive areas.
I also liked the light feature which helps you see the hairs that you are exfoliating. I tried the epilator both wet and dry. I have to say I preferred it dry as it seemed to be more effective,
I must admit Nathan is more of a beard kinda guy although he did give the shaver a whirl. He enjoyed the cooling effect as it prevented the "sting" and he also said it was a lot more effective than his usual trimmer.
He said it gave an amazing close shave and he loved the fact he could use it in the shower which he preferred to his usual dry shave as he found it gave him an even smoother finish. The shaver retails at £200.
All in all we were extremely happy with the results of both the epilator and the shaver. I know that the epilator will be my best friend come the Summer!
*Both items were sent to us free of charge for review purposes but thoughts are 100% my own
