Let’s talk about improved epilator braun silk epil already 9 series.
The experience: a few days
I ordered it on Amazon, the link is here
Here is some information from the box
Here is a picture of the box on the other side
The box looks like this from above
My new helper! Everything in the box fits well, the epilator is not dangling, not scratched or rubbing on the accessories.
This is the final filling of the box: here is the epilator with 40 tweezers, the nozzle for reducing pain, the nozzle for better contact with the skin, the trimmer nozzle, brush to clean the epilator from hairs and dust, power supply and cooling glove.
So, let’s start with the massage nozzle. It is designed to distract us during hair removal from the bulb. Due to the small massage needles it is as if a little sensitivity is reduced, we are not focused on the painful sensations in the place of hair removal.
It has a floating head
Nozzle for a better fit of the epilator to the skin.
The nozzle for better adherence of the epilator to the skin. Serves to lift the hairs from the base, so that the tweezers grab it better and faster. This nozzle has no floating head, it sits on the epilator as a monolith)
The power supply and charging jack are of that kind, not standard, but different wires are not inserted, and thus the wrong voltage will not damage the device.
This model of epilator has a flashlight, which is very cool! This is an indispensable device for epilation, because there are light and thin hair, which you can feel but in a certain light is not visible. The flashlight will definitely find them! And the charge indicator will let you know when the charge is up.
This is what the epilator looks like from behind
I didn’t use the trimmer head in the previous model, I think this one will meet the same fate.

The comparison of appearance of two epilators
We come to the comparison of the appearance of two Braun epilators, the old 7 series and the new 9. With the trimmer attachment they look exactly the same, although the older one gives away the lack of a new luster and the traitorous inscription with the number 7 on the base. By the way, the trimmer head of both models is exactly the same, who uses it, you can easily replace if one is blunted.
Comparing the nozzle with the tweezers, we immediately see that the epilating area of the new epilator is much wider, which means that epilation should go faster.
The massage nozzles are the same, but differ in width. The new one needs more area, this is taken into account in this nozzle.
Let’s compare the tweezers. On both devices the tweezers are half metal and half plastic. I think this is done for a good grip, and to reduce hair breakage. The metal tweezers are harder to grip, therefore they will break more hairs, and the plastic tweezers may not have enough strength to hold a hair in a vise.
Here’s a photo comparison from the back. You can clearly see how much wider the new epilator is.
The nozzle for a better fit of epilator to the skin too, for each model is different, because of the different width of the epilating head.
That’s how much wider the new epilator is. I am excited about the upcoming prospects) I want to try it soon)
The brushes for cleaning are the same in both models.
An interesting device that I have not encountered before is the cooling glove. I thought it should be used after waxing to reduce irritation or relieve pain, but no. It turns out that you can use this thing to desensitize certain areas of the skin before waxing. To do this, you need to put a package of blue gel for a few hours in the freezer, then sweat into a mitten and, for no more than two minutes, put it on the skin. Ideally the blood flow should slow down and the area will be less sensitive. I tried freezing it, but I did not feel any difference, just an unpleasant sensation from the cold thing on my thigh. In general, I will test it not for its intended purpose.

The picture of the sachet with the cooling gel. I think that it is bright blue color so that someone from the house, taking something out of the freezer, did not consume its contents accidentally.
By the way, this bag of cold gel should ONLY be used with a glove. This is what it looks like.
What can I say about the new epilator? I am amazed at the speed of epilation! It only took me 5 minutes to remove hair from both shins! The machine is a beast. It is clearly more powerful than my old Brown, although it may have been faster in its early days too, but I can’t say for sure anymore.
By the way, the new model has a sensor that lights up red if you press hard. I checked it out. At first I thought that this sensor didn’t work, but then I pressed it with my hand and it lit up. Apparently you have to push hard, with such force it is unlikely that someone presses the epilator into the skin.
So far I am satisfied with the purchase. I recommend this epilator, I hope it will last as long as its predecessor, the epilator 7 series).
