I long to be hairless from the nose down. I have tried pretty much every hair removal method out there. I even paid a lot of money for an at-home "laser" that was supposed to remove hair by applying a little beam of light to the follicle. Let's just say it didn't work. Shocking, right?
Well, I discovered epilating about 10 years ago. For underarms and bikini areas, it works!!!! I have light skin and dark hair, so shaving always leaves a 5 o'clock shadow. Waxing worked, but I don't really have the time or money to go to the salon to get it done. And, let's face it, I don't want anyone but my husband to know me that intimately.
Does it hurt? Yes, but it gets better every time. Does it last. Yes, weeks for me. And, if you epilate regularly, it lasts even longer.
Is this the right epilator? Oh, yeah!!!! This guy is powerful, and I love that it's cordless. My last Braun model lasted over 10 years and is still going strong, replaced only because this version is cordless and has attachments that make going "down there" a lot less scary.
Love this thing! I have to admit, I didn't expect the level of pain this thing brings. I do however, love the fact that I don't have to worry about shaving everyday.
A word of advice: def take some painkillers before, do after/during a shower, exfoliate before hand, and read the instructions if you've never epilated before! I took a chunck out of my upper lip...Primarily because of dry skin and not reading the instructions. :/ (Silvmc - Amazon Review)
