Do you use an epilator? If so what model/brand?

K101 K101
Hi there everybody!
I know there's been a TON of talk about shaving and all, but I was curious as to what kind of epilators you guys use?

I've been plucking (very time consuming and a major pain in the ass!) for about a year and using a hair inhibitor. I didn't want to buy an epilator until I was used to the pain of plucking and 100% sure I could handle an epilator.

I bought one recently and am wondering why the heck I didn't go ahead sooner. It hurts far less than plucking! I have only owned one so I can't compare if others work better. What kind of eplilator do you use? Ever had one that you disliked? I'd love to hear!

I have the Chic Emjoi. Any of you have this one? Here's a pic:


Turns out, I absolutely adore this thing! Even sugar waxing doesn't come close to removing as much hair as this does (and this takes far less time!)

I don't use one because it will hurt.

Don't use because I want to keep my hair.

I used to use one, and I still have it. I just stopped using it in the last few months. I liked how it lasted longer than shaving, but it hurt me, and I also started getting a bunch of ingrown hairs, which was the main reason I stopped using it.

I've been using the Emjoi Epi Travel for a few years, it's cheap and convenient. I take an Advil fifteen minutes before I start epilating to ease the discomfort. As long as you keep the growth less than 1/4 inch, it shouldn't be too painful. To prevent ingrown hair, just exfoliate with a small loofah pad three to four days after the epilating process.

I do exfoliate, both with manual scrubs, and salicylic acid, but my skin just can't take any forms of hair removal that take the hair off below the surface. I have a skin condition called keratosis pilaris, so my skin makes extra keratin which blocks my hair follicles and traps the hairs. Even with shaving and exfoliating I still get them occassionally, but epilating made it a lot worse.

I used to have one (not sure what type) and I hated it! it hurt me way too much. I'm glad some people like them, but I definitely won't be using one again.

I'm totally obsessed with my Epilator!! I think everyone should have one. It is painful at first, but no more so than waxing, and it is so much easier! Not to mention the money you save over time.

Haha, I just took mine out to check the brand and then I was like ooh my legs could use a little epilation, and I forgot why I took it out in the first place. It's a Braun Silk-epil.

I don't have one, but it is something I would definitely be interested in (hate shaving), so I am going to set alerts for this discussion


Also, with all the hair removal talk that does go on around here, EF really should stock these sorts of products. They have a few shave lotions/aftercare products, but that is it. It would be nice to have shavers, epilators, wax kits, etc.
