BUYER BEWARE! The item pictured may be considered by the seller as the "LATEST EDITION" but it is NOT comparable to the Emjoi Epi Slim Epilator. The item in the picture is the Emjoi TWEEZE e6. What is the difference? BIG DIFFERENCE when you are as hirsute as I. The Epi Slim has thee active single heads while the e6 has only one double tweezers. Now, you would think that a double tweezers would target a specific hair very well, but not so much. I have used both the side-to-side motion as well as a circular motion in both directions. It's actually quicker to get out a manual tweezers. The pain is the same as with any epilator, so that's not the issue. For those of you who must epilate daily, I would pass this one by and try to find the Emjoi Epi Slim. There was absolutely nothing wrong with that design, barring the need for batteries. I began my epilating history with the Emjoi Epi Slim and endured the pain of a full face of hair. When I tried a couple other epilators, I would confidently use my Epi Slim to get what others could not and I found it on their website with free shipping!
Sadly, I have a lot of dark coarse whiskers on my chin and jaw line. My usual method of removal is by tweezing and if in a rush a quick shave. The shaving always left a shadow and the tweezing is a tedious task. It's so hard to get the right ligt and close up view. I was skeptical about this product due to reviews.
I couldn't be more happy, wish I would have bought one years ago!
Leaves my skin undamaged. When I would tweeze I would often get red spots and sometimes even a little blood. This would result in me looking like I had acne so even if the hair was removed I still looked awful. After a week and a few uses of my emjoi my skin is perfect. No shadows either.
It does tug a bit but to me, it's not any worse than plucking with a tweezer. Plus, you get the added benefit of losing a few hairs with each semi-ouchy pass. You do have to aim it right and do have to rub over a spot a couple times to get it all but it is very thorough. I used it the day I got it, had a couple days growth. A couple days later I got the slower groing hairs. Now I just have to maintain with a 30 second once over every couple days before I head out of the house. Once you get it started the maintenance to keep it up is minimal.
The only place that caused me to wince was the middle of my upper lip below my nose. That's only because I have a lot of fine peach fuzz there. Otherwise, it didn't hurt anymore than tweezing but is so much easier. Totally worth it to me. Even if it breaks every year I'll be happy to buy a replacement because it's inexpensive and I am so happy with it.
I am female, but have quite a bit of hair growth on my face. I don't know why I didn't try this sooner. If you suffer with facial hair and are a woman, you know how embarrassing life can feel. Please give this product a shot. NO facial hair removal creams EVER worked for me. Tweezing would take hours and hours and hours. Waxing didn't work well since the angles are all weird around your chin, neck, etc. Shaving never got rid of the 5 o clock shadow.
I've had to use it everyday for the last week and a half as I work through all the different stages of hair growth. I don't know what the long-term results are. Basically, after doing a lot of research on using this, I found a few pointers I've been using and I have really appreciated them. Start with a clean face. Use alcohol or witch hazel on a cotton pad and wipe down the area you are going to epilate. Epilate in circular motion. Continue and when it hurts too much, stop. Clean/brush the epilator out and wipe down your face again with the alcohol or witch hazel. Try doing some more. Continue until you are satisfied. Wash face with a gentle scrub. In the beginning, when I still had hairs that were too short to be caught by the epilator, I'd shave at this point. Apply a salytic acid lotion/cream. Try not to touch your face during the day to introduce bacteria.
Does it hurt? Yep, but not as much as how you feel when someone is staring at you and you just know they are wondering about your beard.
This blue version of the Emjoi Epi Slim does an okay job but is much rougher than the previous off white version and doesn't do the job nearly as well.
I've seen press that the results last 6 weeks but I'm lucky if they last one day.
Be very careful when you order one of the Emjoi Epi Slim Epilators. When I ordered one earlier this year, I received the Tweezee cheap version which is junk and $10 higher than the real Emjoi Epi Slim.
I love this! Removes most of the facial 'fuzz' and makeup goes on so smooth. Not painful to me at all but I've been waxing my legs and eyebrows for years. Since I had no pain on my face using it, like some reviewers have mentioned, I decided to do my underarms. Surprisingly no pain there either and I did expect it to hurt. Just felt a few plucks of some hairs. Different people, different hair follicles. My daughter who has brown hair did say that it hurt her face but she whines when she gets her eyebrows plucked and has big roots. I think everyone considering this should give it a try because I love the results. Didn't even make my skin red. Amazing results.
This is the first epilator I've ever bought or used in my entire life im 30 by the way. I've always had a problem with dark thick facial hair and since my skin is very very light it makes my hair really stand out, i literally just finished using the epilator and i LOVE it! I should've used one before it works so good and yeah it does hurt a bit which i expected since it's tweezing the hair out from the root but to me it was so worth it!!! I have sensitive skin so there was a bit of redness but i put some aloe vera and it's already going away.
A friend showed me this product when I was complaining about becoming the "bearded lady". I absolutely love it. I have tried many, many things for getting rid of the long and coarse hairs on my chin. This is by far the best thing I have ever tried.
