Epilators

Epilators

Howells Howells
Ladies what can you tell about them to a guy who has never seen one? Maybe I saw one but I didn't know that was it. But I'm considering buying one! For my pubic and armpit needs only. Maybe it's crazy I don't know until I've tried it do I. I like the idea of what they are doing and I want a faster method than what I've been using.

If looking at the emjoi website for example the heads of them look scary. How come they don't tweeze your skin? Are all models have some protective grid attachement that is now shown in the pictures? Like here the upper one. What's the bottom one for? If so, that needs to be attached at all times, if I'm right and the little haris get through the holes and they get pulled out. What happens to the hair after this and how can I clean these?

I don't think I'd use it on the balls, just everywhere else I mentioned. I'm not doing my legs or arms lol. I know it's painful for the first time if you've only shaved there, but I've only did sugaring (most like waxing) this year so guess that's a good start?

I don't know what the bottom attachment is for. My epilator has combs around the edges of the spinning tweezer part that helps grab the hairs. It does not have a screen on it. The spinning tweezers are exposed. That head in the picture (at the top) is an electric shaver head.

As to your question about grabbing the skin, the epilator can grab your skin if you do not hold it taut. I did this accidentally, and my skin got caught in the tweezer part. It broke the epilator head and it cut me. So, pull that skin nice and tight when you go over it!

When you're done, the head typically comes apart, and you can clean out any hairs with a soft brush that is usually included with the epilator. Rinsing might rust the tweezers, so just use the brush.

Here is the type of head I have on my epilator. Most of them look like this: Epilator Head for Remington EP-5000

The image you added is of an electric razor and I have no clue what the bottom one attachment is for.

I use an epilator for my thighs and my bikini but it is too painful to do my labia. My bikini areas is pretty used to the sensation now so it isn't as painful as it is for my thighs, certain areas seem to be more painful then others (like right above the knee is super sensitive for me).

I think that waxing/sugaring is less painful because the pain is quick and short, where as using an epilator is longer and you feel each hair as it is pulled out. My machine scares the hell out of my guy. When ever I am doing a clean up he puts the tv loud, he doesn't want to know or see the pain I put myself through, lol.

Epilators are designed so that the metal flaps clip onto the hairs and pull them out but they are also designed so that they do not pinch your skin. Sometimes my epilator will get a hold of my skin and grab onto it but it is the rolling piece that catches my skin, not the "pincers/tweezers".

I use an epilator because it is easier than having to warm up wax and clean it up after, it is less trouble. Also I use this instead of shaving because it takes longer for the hair to grow back. So in my opinion it is more convenient than waxing, but more

Thanks for your posts. So the head is exposed, that's what I was afraid of How do you keep your skin taut down there? How common is that one gets cut by the tweezers? I found a for men epilator, should I trust it just becuase it's for men or can I get away with a girl one?

Does the head do anything other than rotation? So the tweezers are just shaped like a V for example and the pulling out happens by it moving and catching the hairs, so no complicated motion inside the head just spinning?

My mentor: you might have the last sentence unfinished?

...painful.

Anyways, to keep your skin taught, you pull on it.

The head sort of rolls the tweezers, I don't think it has any other fancy functions. It just spins and as it spins it closes the v shape of the tweezers to clip onto hair in order to pull it out.

I think if the girl one is less expensive go with that one, unless the men epilator has a special extra function that might be practical for use on a male. But I am pretty sure they function the same just market for different genders.

Sorry about the unfinished sentence, lol.

I can't find the one in your picture at the Emjoi website, and none of the Emjoi epilators have a protective grid like your picture's. Epilators are suppose to tweeze your hair strand by strand, I don't think it'll work if there's a protective grid blocking the tweezers. Like the others said, you have to pull your skin taut, or else the tweezers will snatch your skin. It will always be slightly painful, no matter how many times you've done it. To help ease the pain, you can take an Advil or whatever an hour before the procedure, that will help some. Almost forgot, you can buy numbing sprays at beauty product stores, that will ease the pain too, but they tend to be a bit sticky and you'll have to run the epilator over the same spot a few more times to get the job done.

Does somebody have the Braun Silk epil Xpressive Wet&Dry? (7281) I'm interested in it but not sure because it's one of the most expensive ones.. Is it green or blue? I can't decide because in the videos it's blue, in the photos it's green. Maybe inbetween?

I don't have one, but I've read the details listed on the Braun site, seems like a good investment if you're willing to spend that much money on an epilator. The color is turquoise green and white.

Yeah it's the category of 'why not', the first I liked is the emjoi caress thing but that's around $75, this I can get for $125. If it's really good, and as it comes with many useful extras I'm considering buying it. But if it's grass green I won't because I don't like the color Is it turquoise even when switched off or only the light is colored? I'm a bit confused as in my country there is a variation of 'dual' where a blade in included in it too. But I don't want that. If I feel the need to shave for ultimate smoothness after epilation I will doit on my own, no need to have an integrated blade in the epilator head thanks. Maybe it's replaceable, but it's a feature I don't wish to pay extra for.. That's the one that has a green/blue handle as well on the sides. And then there are versions that have no color, and one which is green in the middle.

ohohooo that's it
