Torture yourself with one of the best epilators on the market going for its lowest price ever

  • Published on: May 5, 2017

The Braun silk-épil 9 regularly sells closer to $113, and this $42 price drop is the lowest it has ever been. The deal comes from Amazon’s daily Gold Box deals, which means it won’t be here tomorrow. This particular shaver is one of the most advanced version in Braun’s silk-épil lineup, includes several extra attachments, and boasts Braun’s “most innovative MicroGrip tweezer technology,” whatever that means.

The reviews for this shaver are outstanding. They’re overwhelmingly positive with 4.3 stars based on 760 user reviews, but what makes these write-ups really stand out is the poetry of words at play:

User Elizabeth Hamilton called it “the best worst thing I’ve done for myself.” She said, “I am not one to avoid wishing ill will upon people I dislike, but I don’t think I would wish this sort of pain upon my worst enemy.” She added later, “I am impressed with how smooth my skin is. Assuming that the hair comes back even remotely finer and/or sporadically enough to reduce the pain, the process was worth it.” That’s a big assumption. Good luck, Elizabeth.

My favorite title might be this FOUR STAR review (Seriously, four stars?) that calls the Braun shaver a “Tiny, miraculous torture device.” J Kirby goes on to say, “Pain. Ripping hair from the root, one at a time type of pain. Your first use will make you cry, sweat, even bleed but the three weeks of being a hairless beauty makes it worth it.”

Of course not everyone was as receptive to the pain, some giving it 3 stars because it hurt so bad. Even the reviewer that said “this epilator was by far the most painful I had ever used” still felt obliged to add “My skin had never been smoother before I started using this.”

So if you’re going to buy this thing, I guess you just need to ask yourself if the ends justify the means. Maybe you should just buy it to see if they’re exaggerating or not.
