Braun have recently launched somewhat of a revolution in terms of travelling beauty. The Braun Face Beauty Edition offers both a facial cleansing brush to remove impurities at pore level, and a dinky epilator to remove hairs on the face. The different heads save on space and within the pouch you also get a handy light-up mirror. My only problem? It shows absolutely everything.. So whilst good for spotting any stray hairs, it's pretty terrifying!
I've been using this handy little gadget for a week now and it has fit into my routine with ease. The epilator attachment is really easy to use - of course hair removal is rarely, if ever, pain free, but using the gentle tapping motion I was shown it's very bearable! I had my brows tidied up slightly on the day by the lovely MUA and I didn't even notice she'd removed the baby hairs on my temples/forehead until she told me it was done. Obviously it's not quite so easy to go straight in on the upper lip but it's still relatively simple to do - just make sure to pull the skin taut to minimise pain.
As for the brush, I'm no stranger to this sort of thing. Without mentioning the C word (which I'm sure we can all figure out just fine!), they're a tool I flit in and out with, especially in the colder months when my skin is drier and a little more sensitive. I try. To to let myself depend on them too much but the Braun offering is very gentle and I like the option of changing directions with the buttons. The head itself is a good size for my face and lets me focus on the t-zone instead of going in too heavy with a flannel after applying cleanser. I like to use it after a long day of wearing makeup and my skin feels seriously soft afterwards! I don't use it every single day as for me it can get too addictive, but a few times a week is plenty.
The Braun Face Beauty Edition comes in at £89.99 which I think is pretty reasonable as far as a 2-in-1 tool goes. I've really enjoyed trialling it and will definitely be keeping it in my beautifying routine for the foreseeable future!
