Product: Hair Remover
Have you heard of Epilators before? I had no idea what they were before I was asked to review the new one from Emjoi. They have been around for a long time come to find out. They look a little like an electric razor until you look close at the head. Instead on shaving off the hair at the surface Epilators pull the hair out from the root like tweezers.
The head has 60 sets of mini tweezers which open and close at two different speeds. You can use it on your face or body.
I won’t pretend this doesn’t hurt because it does. It’s also a little scary the first time because its loud.
I tried it on my upper lip first for those super fine hairs that I have there. The hair is very light and can’t really be seen but they annoy me. I normally use Nair on that area every few months but that doesn’t get all of them and I end of trying to find the rest to pluck out. It didn’t hurt very much on my face because my hairs are fine and I’m used to a little pain from getting rid of them before.
Since it worked so well on my upper lip I thought I would try it on my underarms. Well, I was winning like a baby during this whole process. My hair is thicker in this area so it hurt a lot more than my face. I could only get through half of one arm because it hurt so bad. I was looking at some other reviews and some people say it doesn’t hurt that much for them so I guess it is different so anyone.
The part that I did do under my arm and my face still hasn’t grown back over three weeks later which is great. I really wanted to try my under arms again because of this so I purchased some numbing cream used for waxing. After I applied that it didn’t hurt that much at all and I was able to get through both arms. I am going to try my legs next and see how that goes.
Overall I think it is worth if you can stand the pain and get used to it.
