As a licensed esthetician in the state of California, I can say I fully love this device! I normally break out my waxing kit and wax at home. But I now have a 2 year old running around my house and getting into everything. I don’t feel comfortable leaving my waxing warmer out to heat up and stay heated as I’m attempting to wax. So when I looked into epilators I wanted to make sure it was top of the line and would do everything I wanted with promised performance.
I can honestly say I am so impressed with this device! I was able to easily remove my hair without having to worry about my 2 year old attempting to get into something he shouldn’t.
Does it hurt? Well I’m going to say it depends on your pain tolerance level. I can handle a decent amount of pain. So for me I tried a small area first to test it out since I didn’t know what kind of pain to expect. It was fairly uncomfortable to start. Once I got used it it, which was fairly quick, I just went to town!
Tossing my razor in the trash and packing up my wax kit because this epilator is my new go to! I love the smooth results!
I LOVE THIIIIIIISSSS. READ ME! I have had eczema from birth, I was once actually the 2nd worse case in the state during my youth. (2000 - 2005 in Texas.) I have gone from infancy to childhood to teenager to adult, and I was only able to start shaving at 18 yrs. (sometimes for special occasions starting at 14) My Eczema went away right at puberty like all the 90's Dr's said. Only remedies then, like vaseline and baths, allergy testing... Then it hit full force just like when I was a toddler, at 21 yrs old. (It seems my cycle is about 8-10 yrs.) I have wanted a smooth, carefree, steroid/eco/financially friendly option for EVER. I want to wear at least- AT LEAST, a pair of shorts to the pool. The pool with just my family. I'm 125 lbs and I was a serious gymnast as a kid. I cannot stress to you the value that this has for people that need to keep their pores clean from bacteria and ingrown hairs due to skin diseases. Try using it on a small area regularly then expand. If the heads hurt you, maybe drink A glass of wine? that kind of helped me. Treat it like 1/2 the pain of the tiniest tattoo you could get. (Bo-peep could do it over-time.) It actually increases blood flow which will trigger your body to release hormones and chemicals that will later decrease the pain. Your body will let you know, but just in case THERE'S A SAFETY FEATURE for pressure sensitivity.
*sigh* please buy. I'm just a consumer. Don't be a sissy.
I never knew this option existed... omg I love it. If you have LESS THAN A MEDIUM PAIN TOLERANCE, you need to start somewhere else or be very regimented in applying this technique to your skin.
People in these reviews only review out of anger after trying for 5 mins in one area... one person said that it didn't take any hair from her "area" but OMG, I haven't gone swimming in years, and I this thing did what I usually try to do with hair cutting scissors and a new razor before the pool....... without irritation, for weeks.
I read the user manual, which explicitly says, even if you can handle the pain, you'll still get redness and irritation. "Do it at night-time before bed!)
Just try this product while using the different heads AT THE MANUFACTURER'S ADVICE.
Read..... omg. You guys are probably using your Lysol wrong...
This thing is amazing. Taking it from someone who almost died 5 times in 10 yrs from skin infections for various reasons.
I’ve used other brands before, this epilator is so far the best I’ve had. It efficiently works in clearing out the hair, And not as painful as I would expect.
Epilating hurts period so I won’t fault the product. Love that is cordless and has a flexible head. It is easier to clean than previous epilator i owned which is nice. Haven’t used it it wet so I can’t weigh in on that but so far it has been worth the price and I have been using it more consistently than before because the cordless aspect makes it very convenient.
I have had hair that makes me so self conscious for years!! I have actually plucked the hairs put before with tweezers but that can be time consuming haor by hair. I read about this and thought I would try it. I didn't know what to expect. Initially ot hurt but no pain no gain so I dealt with it. I found the tighter I hold my skin, the less ot hurt. I was able to get those hairs plucked out in a fraction of the time and now my skin looks amazing and I'm not self conscious! Thanks Cile!
