  • Advantages of epilators:
    1. Very easy to operate and non messy to use.
    2. You can have smooth silky hands and legs in a matter of max 30 minutes that last upto a month (2 weeks for some).
    3. The cooling pack and the massaging devices (that come with some devices) temporarily numb the area prior to epilation, for less pain.
    4. Best one is over time, hair becomes less coarse (upto fine) when it grows back. With regular use, hair takes longer to grow back. So you stay smoother for long!
    5. Epilators are easier to clean.
    6. Epilators are cheap hair removal method.

  • Disadavantages of epilators:
1. Can be painful the first few times. Then you get used to it. It's the same pain you get while tweezing or waxing.
2. Some people may experience problems with missed or ingrown hairs as well. The solution to which is regular exfoliation.

  • 1. Braun Silk Epil 7681:High Price High Quality -  is the high-end model in the world of epilators. It's a best epilator for women with a larger budget. The epilator is the complete package with everything that you need for hair removal including trimming and shaving head!
    1. Braun Silk Epil 7681:High Price High Quality - is the high-end model in the world of epilators. It's a best epilator for women with a larger budget. The epilator is the complete package with everything that you need for hair removal including trimming and shaving head!
  • Pros :
    1. Quite powerful so it removes hairs really fast. Requires one or two passes and you're done. Try 'no more stubble', silky smooth skin!
    2. Removes hairs as tiny as 0.5mm thanks to its 40 tweezers that are close grip.
    3. It is a wet & dry epilator. You can use it in shower or tub.
    4. Cordless. Convenient to use anywhere, anytime.
    5. Takes 1 hour to charge it and it will last up to 40 minutes. There’s a (-) sign that will let you know when it’s time for another charge.
    6. It not only has a massage and pivoting head but there are also shaving and trimming heads. It’s a 3 in 1 system.

  • 7. Comes with 3 caps: efficiency cap, facial cap, and a sensitive area cap for the bikini line and the underarms. So you can remove hairs by the root from any place on your body with this one single epilator.
    8. Another helpful and practical feature is the built-in light alongside the 2 speeds. To top it all, it offers a 2-year warranty.
    Whoop whoop!

  • Cons:
    1. As a dry epilator, the Silk Epil 7681 can be quite painful.
    2. High price tag but it’s justified by all the accessories, the features, the power, and the wet function.
    3. The charging hassle. I wish we could use it both corded and cordless as some other epilators.

  • 2. Emjoi Emagine AP-18 Powerful and Fast- 
It's the most powerful epilator in market. Thanks to its 72 tweezers, it makes epilating really fast and yet doesn't cause more pain than others. So it’s the best epilator for women for a mid-level price tag. It’s totally worth it!!

  • Pros:
    1. It has 72 tweezers! So it’s incredibly powerful. Epilation sessions will end before you know it.
    2. The 72 tweezers are featured on dual opposed heads, which hold the skin taut so the risk of feeling more pain or the risk of getting ingrown hairs is diminished.
    3. Another technology that helps with preventing ingrown hairs is the Silver Ion technology, which provides antimicrobial protection. It’s pretty cool.
    4. There is also the Glide Technology together with the middle lifting fingers. It ensures that even the tiniest hairs are removed from the first pass.

  • 5. As Braun, this epilator removes hairs even as short a 0.5 mm and it’s going to take up to a month before you feel the need to epilate again.
    6. It's one of the least painful epilators.
    7. It can be used as a facial epilator also.
    Cons:
    1. There are not many accessories for Emjoi AP-18, there’s no efficiency cap or facial cap.
    2. There is no built-in light.
    3. It’s a dry only epilator and corded. But in my opinion it's only because it's the most powerful epilator in market right now. And batteries won't hold that kind of power.

  • 3. Braun Silk-Epil 5280: A pretty powerful medium-priced epilator truely worthy of its price.
    3. Braun Silk-Epil 5280: A pretty powerful medium-priced epilator truely worthy of its price.
  • Pros:
    1. It has 40 tweezers so it's a powerful affordable epilator and this is its biggest pro.
    2. The close-grip technology facilitates the removal of tinier hairs (0.5 mm).
    3. SoftLift Tips function lifts flat-lying hairs, and aligns them for hair removal.
    4. It has accessories like shaver head and a trimmer head.
    4. It has one efficiency cap.

  • 5. Includes a washable head for really great hygiene, 2 speeds, and a smartlight for making sure that you’re not leaving any hairs behind. That’s a pretty complete list.
    6. Also, there’s also the pivoting tweezers head and and the massage rollers.
    7. Includes a cooling glove to sooth your skin after epilation. But you can use the cooling glove before epilating to numb the area because the cold tightens the pores, which in turn might lead to more ingrown hairs. Use it to soothe the skin after epilation.

  • Cons:
    1. It is not a cordless epilator. It needs to be plugged in for it to function. That might be a con for some of you ladies but the cord is long so it offers plenty freedom of movement.
    2. This is not a facial epilator simply because it doesn’t have a facial cap that reduces the number of tweezers that make contact with the skin. It can be used to remove hairs from the root from pretty much anywhere, except face.

  • 4. Philips Satinelle HP6401 Affordable and Efficient -Because it’s cheap and it offers hair-free skin for at least two weeks. It’s obviously not the fastest model but the important thing is that it removes hairs from the root without breaking them at the surface of the skin. Long lasting smoothness!

  • Pros:
    1. It is definitely the best cheap epilator for women in 2014. There’s no other model that can beat its performances, taking into consideration the low price tag.
    2. It has 21 tweezers so it’s not incredibly powerful but in time the epilation will go down much faster. It’s only slow in the beginning.
    3. Other features include an efficiency cap (great!), 2 speeds in case you want the option of taking it slow in some areas, a washable head (great again!), and a two-year warranty.
    4. It’s corded but the long cable gives you plenty freedom of movement.

  • Cons:
    1. It doesn’t have a built-in light. The alternative would be Braun Silk-Epil 3170, which is more expensive only by a few dollars but has a light.
    2. It doesn’t remove tinier hairs efficiently. It can only remove hairs that are 3 to 6 mm short. Unlike expensive models which can pull less than 0.5 mm short hair.
    3. But it’s not a tragedy, if you stick to epilating once every two weeks, you will still get awesome smoothness. You will fall in love with your legs.
    4. Wouldn't recommend it for facial hair removal. Besides that, you can remove hair from your legs/underarms/bikini line/arms.

  • 5. HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator is one of the prettiest hair removal gadgest. The sleek design and the ergonomic shape. It’s feminine and powerful, just like all women are.

    1. 32 ceramic tweezers.

    5. Built in light, massage system and pivoting head, shaving head and trimming head, besides the tweezers head.

  • 7. Other accessories include a cleaning brush and a travel pouch.
    8. For better hygiene, you can also wash the removable head. Once the mess is cleaned away, the epilator looks brand new.
    11. There's also a 2-year warranty and a 45 day return policy. So, if you don’t like, you can return it within those 45 days and get your money back.
    Yeah!

  • Cons:

    1. No facial cap.
    2. It's an expensive epilator.

  • 2. Exfoliate Exfoliate Exfoliate! It will prevent any chances ingrown hair. I will recommend getting an exfoliating glove or a Pumic stone or a body scrub. Exfoliate before each epilation session in order to remove the dead skin cells and after that once every 2, 3 days.

  • 3. Rub Baby powder on the skin first. It causes the hair to stand up a bit more making it easier to eplilate, and the unit glides over the skin a little easier too. It definitely works!

  • 4. Hold the epilator at a 90 degrees angle to the skin. It’s actually the natural and comfortable way of holding it. You don't have to press hard the epilator against your skin, hold it loose because those rotatory tweezers will grab the hairs and pull them by the root.

  • 4. Hold the Skin Taut - Don’t forget to hold the skin taut. It helps with the pain and it’s the key to an efficient epilation. When epilating your underarms, raise your hands over your head and stretch them as much as you can if you don’t want to pinch your skin.

  • 5. Epilate Against the Direction of the Hair Growth - move the epilator slowly against the direction of the hair growth. Don’t rush it. Otherwise, the hairs will be cut at the surface of the skin, instead of being pulled from the root.

  • 6. Use a moisturizer after epilation, or maybe rub some ice to sooth your skin or whatever type you prefer.
It’s best to epilate at night since redness is a side-effect. In the morning, your skin will be perfect, its natural color minus the hairs.

  • 9. Keep a Clean Epilator - Clean your epilator thoroughly, whether by using the cleaning brush (non washable device) or by washing the tweezer head ( washable device).

  • How to reduce pain:
    1. Basically, you can choose a lidocaine cream (numbing cream).
    2. Or you could take a shower before epilation.
    3. Or choose a wet & dry epilator, like Braun Silk-Epil 7681, that can be used under the shower/while taking a bath.
    4. Also you can find some distractions while letting the epilator do the hard work, something like your favorite TV show or a movie.

    Anyway, the results are totally worth it – no more hair growing after just 2 or 3 days, no more money spent on beauty salon waxing, no more stubbles, no more dark shadows. Just clean smooth silky skin!Happy song!
