The hottest beauty trend this season is arguably the no makeup-makeup look. I have seen endless tutorials on other beauty blogs and pins on Pinterest dedicated to the flawless look, that actually seems quite time-consuming. What can be better than being able to actually go makeup free with confidence. 35 floors up at Shangri La at the Shard I experienced a lovely facial and thorough cleanse with the first ever 2 in 1 facial cleansing and epilation system, Braun Face.

What do I think about it?

I have been using the brush for a few days and I am sorry I don’t like the epilation part.  The slim epilator head has 10 micro-openings to capture the finest hairs specifically for the chin, upper lip, forehead and to maintain eyebrows. I am a big girl I know, but it hurts.  I truly believe beauty is a little bit of pain, so I have been sucking it up. For those that are used to epilation expect smoother skin, which should stay that way for up to four weeks.  I suggest making sure to epilate in the evening to allow for any puffiness or redness to go down overnight. Make sure to pull the skin taught and be very light, you don’t want to damage your skin.

Simply change the head and get to the more relaxing bit which is the facial brush. What’s so great about a facial brush anyway? It’s a weird comparison but you know when you see those adverts about how electric toothbrushes are better than manual?  well its the same kind of feel with this. The micro-oscillations are effectively cleansing and exfoiliating, and is still soft enough for sensitive skin. My skin feels tingly and fresh after each application, and my skin seems to be loving me right now as the surface has visibly improved. The kit also comes with a compact mirror with LED light. white beauty pouch, cap, and small cleaning brush.

How to use the facial brush

  • After epilation, apply soap, gel, cleansing milk or scrub on to wet skin.
  • Switch on the brush and start on the forehead lightly sweeping over your skin in a circular motion.
  • Rinse your face, and moisturise. See so simple. Use every day and you will be able to see and feel the difference in under a week.
