Although I have given very few reviews on Amazon, I feel so strongly about this epilator that I simply had to recommend this wonderful product. This is my first epilator. At age 60 something, I have been increasingly struggling to manage my old lady chin hairs. Who knew you start growing WHISKERS as you age?! This has been an ongoing and silently maddening problem for me for several years now. I have been tweezing daily.
Finally fed up, I looked into permanent hair removal. My goodness, the expense!!! So I decided to try an epilator before going to such extreme measures. I read many reviews on Amazon and decided to try the Remington. They have been making shavers for decades, so I figured they know a bit about hair removal. I have only used the epilator twice, but after only my second use, my face has been hair free for 5 days! FIVE DAYS!!! It is so amazing, I keep rubbing my chin and mustache area to make sure I am not imagining things!
I use the middle size guard thing, set it on low speed, and go slowly, pulling my skin taut like men do when shaving, repeating areas until I no longer feel any hairs being pulled. Having tweezed for years, the pain seemed minimal to me (I do have pretty sensitive skin), but at any rate, I was prepared for some discomfort. This hair problem has had me so unhappy, I was willing to put up with almost any amount of pain, if the hair could be kept at bay.
This just solves so many problems for me, especially travel issues. I can pack this with me for trips lasting longer than a week. No more tweezers confiscated at the security check in! No more waking with whiskers! No more five o'clock shadow!
I have course and fine hair on my face. I am hoping, as stated in many reviews, the hair growth continues to become less and less as I use the epilator more. I may try this on my underarms and legs at a later time. For me the simple joy of not having to tweeze my face daily, is quite simply a miracle. I plan to buy another one of these and tuck it away for future.
If you hate the hairs on your chinny chin chin, PLEASE try this. With lovely Amazon you have 30 days to return it, so what can you lose besides disgusting, awful whiskers?!
If my opinion changes, I will write an update, but for now, I am one happy woman!
