Summary: Little painful since it is pulling the hair from the roots. When I shaved my legs it would last not even a whole week but now it last 2 weeks. Recommend using it while the hair is short cause the pain is minor.
Summary: When I purchased this and finally arrived I was desperate in using it, but before I did I made sure to read the whole instructions and care maintenance. for usage it had suggested that before we use it, it is better to exfoliate the skin before epilating it because it helps prevent ingrown hairs. so I did I exfoliated my skin, my arms, leg and underarms. first time I used it, was very scary at first and painful too but it works!
Summary: I never used an epilator before so this would be my first time trying an epilator. When I first turned it on, it was loud. Maybe this is how it is supposed to sound but it the sound resembles as an electric shaver. I have waxed my armpits and they are quick pain but the epilator feels like little tiny pinches. It did not hurt for me when I did my armpit. Although it states for leg use, I used it for my upper lip.
Summary: I recently came across "Epilators"...I had never heard of them before. Next I started to research them, WOW, there are so many different brands and within those brands it was dizzying the different sizes, styles and price ranges! Somehow I came across this Philip's (partially due to price range) and great reviews. I know it says for legs (which I now use it for too) but I actually bought it to try it on my face.
