The first I'd ever heard of an epilator was on a blog from some other lady. I've never used an epilator before, and I don't have any friends that I know of that have used one, but I was very curious to find out how well they worked and if they really were as painful to use for at least the first few times as I had heard. I had also heard that they are one of the best ways to remove unwanted body hair long term, with the least amount of ingrown hairs, and the smoothest results. I read reviews on several different models. I picked this one for price and other people's ratings. I personally liked that it was rechargeable, I leave it plugged in as its convenient for me, the cord is long enough for the most part. When I did use it unplugged it did start to slow down after about a half hour. Pain-wise, well, yeah, it made me suck in my breath a few times, but that was mainly in the more tender areas, like your Achilles tendon, your bikini line (yeah, but it was WORTH IT! No bumps, no irritation, and no rough hair growing back immediately like from shaving or chemical removal), HOWEVER, once you were at an area for a while, it kind of went numb, so I recommend staying in that area and getting all of the hair while its numb! LOL! Armpits weren't as bad as I thought they'd be, and they are no longer irritated from shaving, which is REALLY NICE! Facial hair was the most tender to remove. Still getting up the nerve to remove some of it in certain areas.... ow, but once you do it once, it is easier and less painful the next time, and even less painful and easier the next time..... This was much easier than I thought it would be to do. Much more time consuming than shaving, but the results are AWESOME compared to any other hair removal method I have EVER used. This is super easy to clean, the heads are super easy to change out, and it fits in your hand nicely. Not to mention - no blades to cut you! I SUPER like that! :D
