That Epilady turned me off to any/all epilators- until now.
The other day, while trolling Youtube tutorials, I came across a review for an Emjoi Epilator. After looking at it, I thought that it was time to try an epilator again. I had it in my shopping cart, when my daughter, Amber, walked by and happened to see it.
A few months ago, she ordered two Braun Epilators. One for herself, and one for a friend that never payed up.
Love free stuff! I now have BOTH of them. Amber never used hers' because the noise scared her off.
My plan was to use it on my face. (Although not very noticable until I apply base), I've always hated the amount of hair on my cheeks, jawline and chin. I've tried to wax the area when I wax my mustache, but it was just too painful.
I used the Braun yesterday, and I must say, I am impressed with the results.
It was kinda' painful in a stinging way, but once I started, my body's natural painkiller kicked in and it was smooth sailing! The key to painless hair extraction is speed, and the Braun was pretty quick.
I am now sporting a face that feels as soft and silky as rose petals! Day 2, and no bumps/irritation.
While this epilator works great on my face, I am hesitant to use it anywhere else- not because it wouldn't work, but because of ingrown hair.
I currently shave my legs, lady-bits and underarms because I've had terrible issues with waxing and ingrown hair in those areas.
