This epilator looks nice and friendly. I love the design of it, sleek and girly, with flashes of hot pink and glimmers of shimmer.
Included with the epilator is a water-proof pouch for storing it, a trimmer attachment, a brush for cleaning, an attachment for ‘extra efficient epilating,’ and some Olay wipes to prep your skin.
After toying with the on/off switch a few times in an attempt to become accustomed to the barbaric sound, and warding off comments from my fiancé such as, ‘It looks like a cheese grater, it’s going to take off your skin!’ (I must admit, it didn’t look too dissimilar) I just went for it! I won't lie, it hurt. A lot. I would describe the sensation as being pricked with lots of tiny needles. I got goosebumps from the pain. But I was determined to make both legs smooth and hair-free so I soldiered on and I have to say I did become accustomed to it quite quickly.
I was very impressed with how smooth my legs were after epilating. Initially my legs protested with an unsightly red rash but within half an hour they were back to normal. The epilator can also be used on the face, under-arms and bikini line but the pain of epilating in those areas does not bear thinking about!
I really recommend this epilator. It's simple to use, looks lovely and effectively removes hair. I've been told that with increased use the pain is lessened and I've also been advised to use it in the shower to help ease the pain.
