It's battery operated by 1 AA battery (not included) you get a cleaning brush, a pouch and an illuminating light, I love this light there's also a timer on it, can't say how long but it does switch off which is helpful as God knows I could just shut the lid and be done away with it and leave it burning. I do wish the brush had a cover for it as it would make it more hygienic when storing. The epilator is very handy due to it being slim it's more precise for the upper lip / eyebrows / chin or forehead. I've tried it on my upper brows where the hair starts to join my hairline area and well who doesn't appreciate a smooth face after hair removal.
Here's an interview I did with Epilator Central where I mention the Braun Face
