New toy!

EN

Oh you people, thanks for liking my homemade steamed custard buns from the last post!

Alrighty, a ‘new toy’ although mostly a toy is nice but this one is actually an epilator that I’ve bought recently. Beauty is pain girls :c  

Summer is coming which means bare legs of course and I am fed up with the razors and waxing and buying an epilator has been on my wishlist for a while. And I’ve chosen for the Braun Silk Epil3!

I didn’t want to pay a fortune and this Silk Epil3 is a good deal (40 bucks). Not waterproof unfortunately but oh well.

So. Did it hurt? Pulling hair out of your flesh and blood is never pleasant so I was kind of scared when I turned this thing on. But! I have to say it wasn’t so bad. I though tweezing eyebrows were more painful than this epilator. But no regret buying it.

Anyway I’m off watching EU songvision!  EDIT: congratulations Austria! I'm so proud my Holland got 2nd place!

Bedankt voor de lieve commentaar op mijn vorige post hoor c:

Dus. De zomer komt eraan en mijn benen willen graag wat zon zien. Helaas hebben wij meiden te maken met ongewenst haar en ik had schoongenoeg genoeg van scheren, waxen en heel die rambam. Dus kocht ik laatst een Braun Silk Epil3.

Hij was lekker goedkoop dusja. Helaas isie niet waterproof.
En jullie vragen waarschijnlijk zich af of het pijn deed. Haren met wortel en al uittrekken is nooit een pretje en je zult altijd wel wat voelen, en zeker ook met de Silk Epil3.

Maarrr! Ik moet wel zeggen dat de pijn wel meevalt. Echt waar! Mijn wenkbrauwen epileren beschouw ik zelfs pijnlijker. Ik ben best wel blij met dit epilator, nooit meer nieuwe waxstrips kopen of wat dan ook :P

Maar goed ik ga naar het EU songfestival kijken! EDIT: OMG wij Nederlanders staan op de 2e plaats! 
Gefeliciteerd Oostenrijk hoor :P 

Battery, brush and a manual booklet that I probably will never read... 

This kind of surprised me because I thought it would be made from China and I don't want to mean anything bad by it but its nice to see there are still stuff made in EU. 


Waterproof: nope
Battery: with a socket
Pain level: bearable lol
Overall: ♥♥♥♥ 4/5

  1. You're so brave using the epilator. I used mine for a month or two before returning to razors. It left my skin feeling irritated unfortunately. D:

  2. Hmm I've never really considered an epilator because I;m okay with waxing/razors/just being lazy haha. Are there any benefits to epilating over the others?

  3. Ahh ik krijg al pijn als ik ernaar kijk haha :p Ik heb zelf eentje met zo'n icepack eraan, helpt wel maar ik vind het alsnog niet fijn. De mijne breekt trouwens ook de haartjes af ipv helemaal eruit trekken, dus uiteindelijk heb ik alsnog geen gladde huid. Bummer! Maar die van jou werkt wel goed? Erna verzorg ik mn huid met de Bio-oil van de Kruidvat, ook een aanrader! :) xx

  7. Oh, damn! I've never dared trying an epilator. I've been glued to razors ever since. I reaaaally don't like waxing. Good going!! xx

  11. I also have and epilator that I have been using for years and I actually have less hair on my legs now (or is that too much information?) - I wouldn't want to do without anymore!

  13. Wah, I'm so scared of epilators! I personally shave my legs and tweeze my underarms/eyebrows, and I'm getting more used to the pain lol. Poor manual books, nobody seems to read them!

  14. I got the same one! It takes some time getting used to but definitely better than shaving!

  16. Lijkt me echt een ideaal apparaat. Ben benieuwd naar je ervaring er mee!

  17. I need to invest in this! I don't want to use razors so much, especially when I travel, less things to take. I turned to waxing at home and it's not so bad. Please update us on this :)

  18. Ooh, ik vind epilators echt vreselijk, haha! Ik heb die van mijn moeder een aantal keer proberen te gebruiken op mijn benen, maar ik trek het echt niet. Mijn tatoeages deden serieus minder pijn :') Lijkt me prettig als je er niet zo veel last van hebt en ze gewoon kan gebruiken, maar ik houd het maar bij scheermesjes ;)

  19. wow. i think my friend had this! i think i'd be a bit scared but shaving totally blows.

  20. I had an epilator when I was a teenager and was soo painful, hahaha, but I guess I should give it another try because they must have evolved since then hugely. Dani is right by my side asking if it can be THAT painful (clearly not believing me) I think I will try it on his leg :P Oh! I was also watching the eu songvison and Holland was a favorite, very beautiful the duo! Congrats on the second place! Although Conchita and her beard were interesting as well :)

  21. I have a similar one and I used it more than enough to justify the purchase, but I find it takes a while and it hurts. But that's probably because I wait too long to do it. It's better if you do it when your hair is still short, I heard it's less painful. It's annoying to clean up though so do it in the bathroom where you can easily broom.
