Summer. The season of sunshine, making fun plans with friends and family and long, lazy days at the beach. But it’s also the season of constantly checking your calendar so you can plan when you need to schedule waxing appointments and make time to visit the salon… Much, much less fun. There must be an easier way? Luckily, we’ve got the perfect alternative – and it’s called epilation. Introducing your new best friend: the Braun Silk Epil.

The simple solution to smooth legs all summer long? If you haven’t tried an epilator before, you’re definitely missing a trick. Forget spending time and money on waxing, epilating is quick and fuss-free, whether you’re at home or travelling. The best bit? Epilation lasts for ages – and you don’t have to wait for hair to grow back as you do with waxing, epilators work on hairs as short as 0.5mm. Let’s face it, stubble is only really sexy on George Clooney.

It’s also a more long-lasting hair removal solution as hairs are removed at the root, meaning up to four weeks hair-free. And the pain factor? Waxing is definitely worse. For an even more comfortable experience, you can actually use the Braun Silk Epil Wet & Dry Epilator in the shower. Plus, the more you epilate, the less painful it gets. #WINNING. Even better, choose an epilator with massage or exfoliating attachments, and you can create a pampering spa experience at home… Wine, candles and chill-out music optional. You can also epilate while you catch up on your favourite podcasts – and who doesn’t love multi-tasking?

And as for the price? Try epilation now: Shop Braun epilators on Amazon – with up to 50% discount, meaning more more to spend on books to read on the beach, summer sandals and city breaks. Love it, or get your money back! Plus, think of all the time and money you’ll be saving from waxing appointments…
