I am obsessed with my Epilator! I want everyone to know how great these are! I got into waxing a year ago and loved it because I have coarse dark hair that requires a daily shave to be smooth... I rarely felt I could get through a day without feeling like I need to shave again. I tried sugaring, hot wax, hard wax. I love the outcome of waxing, but waxing hurts, it always makes me flinch when they pull, and its expensive. I don't like having to wait until my hair grows out to then shelve out a bunch of money to start the process over again. I asked the last person who waxed my legs and all my girlfriends but no one had heard of an epilator, and if they did, they thought that I was an old school product that sounded really painful. I decided to try this Braun epilator after some research and figured 1. Braun guarantees your satisfaction with the epilator and 2. its not that much more money than a wax. When I first turned it on I was a bit freaked out. It took me awhile to have the courage to put it to my leg. I took a hot shower and just had to go for it. Now I am obsessed. This is such a great product. You can use it wet or dry, it picks up short hairs so you don't have to wait for grow-out, it hurts way less than a wax, and its a one-time investment for many uses. I am so glad I found out about epilators and encourage you to give it a try. I think waxing (hot, hard or sugaring) hurts way more. I have very sensitive skin. After waxing I usually have red bumps on my leg for 36 hours or so. This doesn't happen for me when I epilate. Some tips: I clean my legs with Tend Skin Solution after I epilate and then later put on coconut oil. When you epilate go slow, and sometimes you have to move the epilator in different directions (not just up and down) to get all the hairs. I first epilated my legs after my final wax, so that may have contributed to my first epilating session being a breeze (since my hairs were more fine than had I been shaving). All in all, I am telling all my girlfriends about this and considering getting them as gifts for my friends. Last weekend I epilated in my back yard in the sun and then went to the beach. My legs looked great. I have already saved money. So much better than waxing or shaving! Give it a shot, it may just become your favorite beauty hack :)
