The unique set comes with a Valentine’s Day friendly red metallic lid, a cute makeup bag and no less than four beauty tools. We love it!
The cleansing brush offers a 3-in-1 action working on cleansing, exfoliation and epilation. The cleansing brush leaves skin radiant and ready for you to apply moisturiser. According to the brand “the Braun Face cleansing brush works six times better than a manual cleanse, and gently exfoliates and refines your skin thanks to hundreds of micro-oscillations.” It is suitable for daily use on delicate, dry and sensitive skin. So there is no need to worry if you have troublesome skin!
This should be used weekly to sweep away dead skin cells leaving skin feeling fresh and clean, thanks to a combination of 8mm and 10mm bristles
The epilation function removes pesky hairs with a good amount of precision and speed too, leaving skin soft and kissable for the special day. In fact, it is worth noting that it operates 200x faster than a manual tweezer action.
Overall, this is a great device and one that will leave the lady in your life feeling more confident and more in control of her skin. A great buy!
