Step-by-step tips for using your epilator
- Prep Skin: Ensure that your skin is clean and dry before use. For first time users: start epilating in the evening so any reddening that develops can disappear overnight
- Properly angle device: Place the epilation head at a right angle 90 degrees to the skin. For first time users: try the epilator first with the efficiency cap
- Epilate: With free hand, stretching skin makes sure hairs are standing upright. Move the epilator slowly against the direction of hair growth
- Cleanup: The fully removable, washable head makes cleanup a breeze

The product came as described with an extra long cord, making it easy to move around the bathroom. This little baby is pretty loud, but my sleeping husband and toddler did not wake up in the next room. I successfully rid the hair from both arm pits in one sitting. From the reviews I read I have to say it was not nearly as painful as I thought. It stung a little afterwards but within 30 minutes my underarms had no red bumps and were so smooth! I did not use deodorant for a day to be on the safe side. I also did not have discomfort at work that evening. The following day I used deodorant and everything was fine. Not having shaving irritation is wonderful! I have had to shave my armpits TWICE in a day that's how fast the hair has come back. Once a day minimum. No more! It's been 3 days and my armpits are smooth as a baby's bottom literally!
I have attached a picture for you to see. I followed all the recommended exfoliation procedure, went slow, and held it at a 90 degree angle and my legs had a lot of red bumps. It took much longer than anticipated to get both legs (knee down) complete and I still could not get all the hairs. I'm still learning so I won't let one time discourage me. Some say those bumps lasted for days and even weeks of irritation and leading to ingrown hairs but this is false for me. My legs did have the same light sting afterwards that they do after shaving with a razor. Used my moisturizer and the sting was calmed within 10 min. Thankfully the next morning my legs are almost fully cleared! However not all the hair is gone, so my legs aren't baby smooth. It's definitely a learned procedure. Skin comes in all types of sensitivity levels so I agree that this form of hair removal isn't for everyone. For lack of a better word it's pretty "rewarding" if it works!! Yay smooth arm pits!!
Left most image in my picture shows my leg after I soothed it in cold water, you DO NOT use water while you are using this epilator!
I love this thing. Did some more reading, hair and skin grows in rounds and layers so it's nearly impossible to get my legs completely smooth,however I used it several more days in a row and got my legs satisfactory. A week later and they still feel/look less than 1 day razor shaving stubble. THE RED BUMPS WERE ONLY A "FIRST TIME EPLIATING THAT AREA" IRRITATION. No red bumps on all subsequent rounds. Used on inner thighs near bikini area and have had way more success than a razor. After 24 hours red bumps gone and no shaving irritation. My armpits are still smooth! Not having shaving irritation or fast hair regrowth is amazing. Now that my skin is used to it I can actually sit down and touch up whatever needs it without having to waste my time and water shaving in the shower!
Another plus: normally you would want to shave/be hair free when going to the beach or swimming so shaving right before the event makes sense? Until you get in the water and your legs are burning because you shaved either the day before or the day of? NOT ANY MORE! Once your legs are used to it the faster speed is no longer intimidating. Extremely happy with how this epilator has worked out in so many ways!
Waxing. Heretofore, my go-to method of hair removal for legs and bikini area. Cons: it's expensive, or if you do it yourself, messy and time consuming. Plus, need to grow hair out long enough between wax jobs. So basically, I spend most of the summer in long skirts and light pants. I LOVE winter. Legging season. Yes, thank you! Luckily, my husband doesn't mind my Sasquatch legs so much in the winter. I tell him it helps keep my legs warm.
So, why the epilator? Well, I was on vacation with my family, and I couldn't get into anywhere to get waxed, and I wanted to go swimming without frightening children or tourists thinking they spotted a short Sasquatch and taking blurry pictures of me. My sister-in-law had this model, and raved about it. I was curious, so I went for it.
It took a while. The pain was intense. And though I've had 2 kids, I am kind of a wuss when it comes to pain. Hard to describe the feeling of all your leg hairs getting plucked out by spinning blades all at once. Honestly, it was similar to the feeling of getting a tattoo. I had my husband try it on a small part of his arm, and he yelled. Couldn't handle it. I had to keep taking breaks from the pain. My skin would get used to it for a bit, then I'd have to move to a new spot, and it would all start again. Afterwords, my legs looked (and FELT) like I had already gotten a pretty bad sunburn. I swore, never again.
BUT, it lasted so much longer than waxing. The hair grew back more sparse, softer, and slower than it does when I wax. My sister in law said the first time was the worst. So, I bought it, and gave it another chance.
The second time, I had a good system. Smaller, repetitive movements, just gently gliding it over the skin (no need to push in, like an electric razor), pulling the skin taught just above where you are working. And you know what? She was right. Way less painful. Done in about 30 minutes or so. Still painful, but tolerable. No redness on the skin (except a few places where the skin is super sensitive). Smooth legs once again. And the great thing is that I don't have to wait for the hair to get super long and thick to use it again, since it will pluck the hair at pretty much any length as it grows back. The sparser the hair, the less painful it is.
If you get this, I recommend trying it twice. Remember small, repetitive movements, gently glide over the skin, pull the skin taught above where you are working. If you have gotten a lot of tattoos, the feeling will be similar, so you'll be fine.
I don't know if I'll ever really use it on my bikini area, I am just not that brave. But I think I have found a way to never have to wax my legs again.
