Braun SkinSpa

Finally, an excuse to get rid of your shaving gel, blunt razors and that half empty tube of hair removal cream you’ve had in the bathroom draw for the past year. The Braun SkinSpa

has. it. all. Close-Grip-Technology makes the epilator tool one of the most effective I’ve used, removing hairs as short as 0.5mm. You can feel the power of the machine as it picks up speed in your hand. Nought to sixty in under 3 seconds. Plus, switching between attachments couldn’t be simpler and more fiddle-free.

The shaver tool is equally as efficient at removing hair, almost as close a shave as a razor. All functions can be used in the shower or in the bath, and the SmartLight technology makes sure no hair goes unnoticed.

The only downside is, although the exfoliation attachment exfoliates four times better than a manual scrub, the size of the head means you can’t quickly cover as much ground as you would with a mitt or a body scrub brush. Not so great for those who like to keep their beauty regime brief.

Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream

The scent of Skin Caviar Luxe is subtle and the cream is light and non-greasy, easy to apply make-up on top of. It doesn’t irritate sensitive skin, instead keeping the entire eye area nicely hydrated all day. You only need to use a small amount of the cream per application, unless, like me you sometimes can’t help but use these creams for full face application.

Skin Caviar Luxe seemed to slightly improve the smoothness of the skin around my eyes, but I didn’t notice anything revolutionary and the small corner lines seem to be mostly unchanged. La Prairie anti-ageing creams are believed to be some of the best on the market. I’m not so sure Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream is some sort of miracle cream, but for the feeling you get when you open the the shiny outer tin and wrapping to reveal your cute little midnight-blue pot of joy, its well worth the money.
