First off, I'm a guy, so any other guys out there read my review. I recently bought Nair for men, and Oh god don't try it. I highly reccomend an Epilator over Depilatory creams. One of my friends snuck up behind me with her Epilator, and long story short I had a bald patch on my cheek for almost 2 week. Figured that if it worked that well I'd suck up the pain. Ok, now review. Step 1. Ignore all the feminine appeal on this product, Epilators designed for men are the same thing, just 3x the price and colored red and black. This one is not pink, throw away the box and pretend it was designed for you. Step 2. DO NOT Use this product in the morning, This is 100% different than shaving, Your left with red bumps for at least an hour after use. Use it at night, preferably after showering. Step 3. Test it before you use over a large area, I tried a small patch on my stomach, and on the side of my neck, just to see how long my skin would be irritated. (best to use at night before sleep/after dinner) Step 4. Do not be intimidated by the sound/looks/feeling. Its about as loud as an electric shaver, and the spilling tweezers do resemble blades... but its entirely safe. If your worried about pain, try plucking one hair, This epilator is about 50% as bad as manual plucking. Just over a longer period of time, suck it up! Step 5. Start slow! Work small patches, read the user guide! Moving quickly will just increase the discomfort! (more hairs pulled at once) After about 5 mins I didn't even notice the pain anymore. In the end It will be worth it, Hair will not be as coarse (as the whole hair is removed, what grows back is new and uncut) and it will be easier to remove the second time. The pricing on this product was even less than the electric shaver I was planning to buy, sure there is some discomfort... but you cant find an electric shaver that will keep your skin smooth for as long as an Epilator. Just think of this as the world's closest shave, and try it. You wont be disappointed.
