We all know it girls. As the weather gets warmer it can only mean one thing: it’s time for those winter peepers, those lovely legs that have been hiding beneath layers of denim, leather, tights and socks, to emerge from hibernation and say hello to the world! Ok, so it might not be quite so dramatic, but it’s definitely something most of us think about as we move into summer. I have to admit I’m super lazy when it comes to haircare of any sort. I get my hair cut once a year, colour it myself, and only remember to shave my legs minutes before I’m meant to be on my way out. So when Braun got in touch about trying their new epilator, the Silk-épil 9, I didn’t think I was the right girl for the job. But having used it, it now makes perfect sense that someone like me is exactly the type of person that should be using their epilator! It makes hair removal quick and easy, and unlike shaving lasts for up to four weeks. Perfect!

If you haven’t used an epilator before, don’t worry – until yesterday, I was the same! The main worry I had was whether it would have the same smooth result as shaving. I’ve had my legs waxed once before, years ago, and the issue then was that not all the hairs were removed. I thought it would be the same with the epilator. Braun reassured me that their new Silk-épil 9 can remove hairs four times shorter than waxing, and after trying it out yesterday my pins are definitely super smooth, just like shaving! Another great thing about the epilator is that it can be used in the shower and tub since it is water resistant, so there’s no absolutely no awkward squatting on the bathroom floor involved! All in all, it was a far quicker and easy experience than I anticipated. And the best thing is – I can now go back to being my lazy self for another four weeks 😉 so embrace your smooth-skin confidence this summer with the new Braun Silk-épil 9 and let your legs #BreakFree!

Hope you are all having a lovely week my dears! To make up for being a bit quiet on the blog the last few months while I was in my writing cave, we have lots of new posts coming up for you. Check back tomorrow for a special shoot we did in Amsterdam that you might have spotted me teasing over on Instagram … Happy Friday sweethearts! x
