Braun FaceSpa Pro 912 Overview
One Device, Many Functions
The Braun FaceSpa Pro 912’s attachments help cut down on clutter by performing three functions: epilation, cleansing and toning – while taking up a fraction of the space required by separate, dedicated tools. Exfoliation brushes, skin vitalizing pads and beauty brushes can be purchased separately, making the FaceSpa Pro even more useful.
Gets to The Root of The Matter
To provide long-lasting results, the Braun FaceSpa Pro 912’s epilating head moves at 200 times per minute, capturing and pulling out by the root superfine hairs down to 0.02 mm wide and 0.5 mm high.
Such hairs are a real hassle, often remaining hidden until revealed by the right (or in this case, wrong!) light.
Superior Cleansing With Less Effort
The included facial cleansing brush – round in shape and comprised of three outer rings and a centralized cluster of gentle bristles – is reminiscent of an electric toothbrush head, and similarly, oscillates.
This oscillating action removes oil, makeup and other impurities up to six times more effectively than manual cleansing – and requires fewer passes and less pressure. Clean skin is healthy skin!
Improves Product Absorption and Skin Circulation
It’s an exciting time for skin care – we have a greater selection of oils, moisturizers, serums, toners and creams from which to choose than ever before.
Trouble is, these sometimes magical-seeming substances, carefully formulated to renew skin and keep at least some signs of aging at bay, don’t always come cheap.
The Braun FaceSpa Pro 912 utilizes a Micro Vibration head to improve the absorption and efficacy of topical products, generating gentle, rapid vibrations that drive skin care products deeply and evenly into your skin.
This maximizes results and minimizes waste – no more spreading product with your fingertips! And the vibrating effect increases microcirculation, nourishing your skin with oxygen-rich blood.
Safe for Use in The Shower
Like many electric grooming tools products, the Braun FaceSpa Pro 912 is one hundred percent waterproof. That means you can take it into the shower and use it under running water. We found that doing so further enhanced its already excellent cleansing action.
Optimal Performance, Always
Braun’s Smart Head Detection system recognizes which of the numerous attachment heads is connected, and automatically adjusts output and speed accordingly. We liked that there are no fiddly controls – just a sleek power button.
Click an attachment in place, and let the FaceSpa Pro 912 do the thinking for you!
Battery-Saving Treatment Timer
Much like Braun’s electric toothbrushes, the FaceSpa Pro 912 features an automatic timer. The 912 pulses every twenty seconds, reminding you to move to another area of your face. It’s a handy feature that helps ensure even treatment while conserving battery life.
Braun FaceSpa Pro 912 Pros and Cons
Let’s recap the multiple benefits of Braun’s best facial epilator, and examine in brief what could have been done better.
Many devices in one. Various attachment heads obviate the need for separate devices, cutting back on clutter and saving you money.
Vastly preferable to waxing and plucking. The FaceSpa Pro 912 surpasses in comfort and outpaces in speed traditional methods of epilation, and at minimum matches their performance, pulling even the finest facial hairs out by their roots.
Improves skin at the touch of a button. Thanks to the Smart Head Detection System, a wide variety of attachments can be used to cleanse, massage, exfoliate – and, using topical products, restore – skin, noticeably improving its appearance.
Shower-ready. One hundred percent waterproofing makes the FaceSpa Pro 912 safe to use under running water for the ultimate in facial cleansing.
Pricey. At over £100’ish from most online retailers, Braun’s FaceSpa Pro 912 doesn’t come cheap. Some users found it overpriced – but if you struggle with sensitive skin and fine facial hair, investing in the quality system is well worth it.
2-pin plug. The included power adapter uses a 2-pin plug, making it necessary to charge the FaceSpa in a shaver socket. A standard plug – or in this day and age, USB charging – would have been welcome.
Battery life. A higher-capacity battery could have been included. The power output is sufficient, but we’d have preferred that the FaceSpa Pro 912 ran longer between charges.
Thumbs Up for the Braun FaceSpa Pro
A few minor quibbles aside, the FaceSpa Pro is an excellent electric epilator. Elegant in appearance and capable of performing a multitude of skin care tasks, from removing hair to massaging skin and more – the FaceSpa Pro 912 is well worth your consideration.
