Excellent epilator, best one I have used.
Reviewed in the United States on March 7, 2017
I highly recommend this epilator. It is surprisingly gentle and very powerful. It will make quick work of removing your hair even on the most sensitive areas of your body! Generally I have seen places recommend a smaller head and lower speed for more sensitive areas, but I found the opposite to be the case with this epilator. The higher speed was actually more comfortable - much as you could expect pulling hair out faster is more comfortable than prolonging the pain! Even with the exposed head there was very little risk of catching your skin as the sides do a decent job pushing your skin lightly away.
I knocked them down one star because after a use or two, the battery powered option did not seem as powerful. While I can just keep it plugged in for the full power experience, it bothers me that the battery does not seem to have the same juice. This could be a hassle if you were traveling with it or not using it in a place convenient to an outlet. I also have not heard back from the company when I asked them about this.
If you have concerns about epilators in general, this review probably won't alleviate them. I do think this is the best, most comfortable epilator I have tried, however. Whatever hair removal method you end up being comfortable will be best for you. This is just to say if you want to epilate, or currently do, the Emjoi Soft Caress is the best option. I have found that this works on hair of ALL lengths - so even if you get a bit lax on your maintenance, it will pull through.
As a bonus, it does come with a small loofah so that you can exfoliate before depilating (a MUST!) and a cleaning brush. The whole thing is pretty easy to clean - the cover pops off and you can pretty easily brush away any hair and rotate the head to clear any out of the tweezers.
Some reviews have asked if the gold is a gimmick - no! Not only does it look good, Gold has anti-microbial properties that should keep it from harboring bacteria. This is especially important as your exfoliated, plucked skin has essentially no natural defenses.
