Best Epilator 2017: Buyer’s Guide & Reviews of Mar. 2017

by Steve Jackson | Last Updated March 1, 2017

Practically, not a single woman can live without epilation. Invention of a household epilator allowed to carry out this procedure at home. This saves time, money and nerves from the waiting in queues to a cosmetologist. But there are many epilators on the market. How do you choose a quality, reliable and functional device? Take a look at the rating list of the best epilators of 2016. These models are leaders of sales and have lots of positive reviews.

Generally, it is quite a difficult task to compare various models of epilators and choose the best of them, but we have tried to find out their main differences and compared prices to let you know, how to correctly choose an epilator. In our rating list we reviewed some of the best and most famous models of epilators.

Power type

Both cordless and corded epilator will suit for home use. The former is better for travels. However, keep in mind, that you would still need to recharge it, and usually you need an electric outlet to do that, so there is no special need for autonomous models.

Attachments

The more attachments an epilator has – the better it is. If you have sensitive skin, a special cap and a massager are the must-haves for you. A trimmer head and a shaver head will help you to do various intimate haircuts, and the precise epilation head will be perfect for hair removal in bikini area, armpits or face.

Additional functions

Pivoting head of an epilator is one of the necessary functions for clear hair removal. Do not buy models without built-in light – they are very inconvenient. A cooling glove is a must for those with sensitive skin. It is better not to choose models, that can not be used in shower: dry epilation is much more painful, and using foam during the hair removal will let you painlessly lose undesirable hair.

Best Painless Epilator of 2017

Remington iLIGHT Ultra Face and Body Hair Removal System – Best Painless Epilator

If you are using an epilator for the first time, you should not do it before going somewhere in public, since there is a possibility that your skin will be irritated after the epilation and you will suffer from skin flushing for some period of time. It is better to epilate at evenings (before going to bed), so after a rest your skin would have a silky and smooth appearance.

Braun Silk Epil 9 9 9-941e – Wet & Dry Cordless Epilator and Exfoliation System

The Braun Silk Epil 9 is one of the most popular epilator from Braun. It gives painless and comfortable epilation and has a plethora of interesting extra features.

As it is usual with Braun products, Silk Epil 9 has a bunch of different models. They differ only by color and attachments for the epilator – the device itself is absolutely identical in every Silk Epil 9 model.

Silk Epil 9 SkinSpa – Model 9-941e has two exfoliating brush heads, that can be placed on top of the device in order to deeply exfoliate your skin (with the blue brush) or for smooth and soft exfoliating procedure (using the purple brush). The model also includes a skin contact gap.

The package is pretty rich: apart from the things I already mentioned you will find charging stand, cable, travel case, cleaning brush, two AA DURACELL batteries and an instruction manual.

There are no drawbacks – this is a very good device. Though, I am afraid, that you will not be able to replace the epilation head if it breaks – I couldn’t find replacement parts anywhere.

The Braun Silk Epil 9 is made in Germany – so there are no complaints whatsoever about its assemble quality – it is simply perfect. The design is beautiful – this is one of the best-looking epilators on the market.

The front of the handle has a purple control ring. It is easy to use: it has three locks and can be operated with right or left hand. The epilator has a small built-in light – use it to highlight even the thinnest hair.

The most important part of any epilator is its head. It is larger, than head of the Braun Silk Epil 7 epilator, so the process of epilation will be a little bit quicker.

The head consists of two separate parts: an outer cap and the epilation head itself. Exfoliating brushes can be mounted pretty easily.

I bought it for my girlfriend and she thinks, that this is the best epilator in the world! It will painlessly make your skin smooth and beautiful. Including head brushes provide you with comfortable exfoliating experience. And the price is not very high for such a product. I recommend it to everyone!
Pros
Good build;
Rich complectation;
Beautiful design;
Has built-in light.
Cons
I couldn’t find replacement parts for it.
 

Braun SE7681 Silk Epil 7 Wet and Dry Epilator – Best Epilator For Men of 2017

The Braun SE7681 Silk Epil 7 is another sweet piece of machinery from a famous German manufacturer. This is a very universal device: it is cordless, simply rechargeable (you can use it as a corded model) and can be used for both wet and dry epilating.

It has five various attachments, that will help you to deal with unnecessary hairs all over you body. All of them provide famous German quality and comfort. My girlfriend especially liked the efficiency cap, that removes hair very fast in a single stoke. Almost painless! I tried it once too. I used to remove armpit hair and I felt absolutely zero bad feelings.

The head of the Braun SE7681 Silk Epil 7 pivots and moves according to the contours of your body, face and legs.

The design of the device is simple, but ergonomic. It is made of plastic and colored in gray. It also has a small light source, that will help you to see even your thinnest hairs.

Another great feature of the Braun SE7681 Silk Epil 7 is its massaging effect, that soothes the pain and makes the epilation process not so terrible.

The device is totally waterproofed – you can use it even under the shower or in a bathtub. You can safely use any shaving gel or foam and then simply wash the epilator.

The battery only lasts for about 35 minutes. It may be enough for a fast regular shave, but I think that is pretty low amount of time.

It takes only 60 minutes to completely recharge the device. As I already mentioned, you can use it as a corded epilator – this is very comfortable, when you forgot to charge it in time.

The package includes the device itself, a trimmer cap, an efficiency cap, comfortable travel pouch, a cap for the sensitive areas, facial cap and a shaver head. You will also find a bunch of pre-epilation wipes. Very sweet and nice addition.

This is a great universal and very practical epilator, that will suit most women. You will look great in short skirts and dresses! Forget about the pain – you won’t feel it with this device.

Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator – Best Epilator For Face of 2017

The Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator is a pretty expensive, but very effective epilation tool.

This is one of the most beautiful tool for hair removal. The design is really good and ergonomic. It is feminine, but strong at the same type. The front has an interesting print on it.

There are two modes – number one is for the gentle epilation and number two is for the fast and efficient one.

The complectation is beyond all expectations: it includes a nice pouch, the trimming comb, a cleaning brush, an active hair lifter and massaging system with pivoting cap.

The device is cordless: it can work for forty minutes without recharging. It takes 60 minute to fully charge it. You can use it during the charging process – this is a rare feature among the cordless epilators.

According to numerous reviews, this epilator is not very fast. Also, it doesn’t have a facial cap, so you can’t use it as a facial epilator. This is pretty annoying, considering the high price. Was it so hard to include a facial cap in the package? C’mon, Phillips, this is stupid.

The epilator has 32 tweezers. They are made of ceramic – this is an unusual material for this kind of tool, that proofed to be very effective. The device has an active hair lifter system, that will help you to remove even the smallest hairs. Unfortunately, there is no facial cap included in the set, so I would not recommend you to use it for facial hair removal.

Moreover, Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect has a massage system. It eases the pain and creates a nice feeling. Pivoting head is used to reach even difficult spots.

If you are too sensitive to pain – there is a trimming head that you can use to shave hair instead of the epilation.

Keep in mind, that this is the dry only epilator.

This is a very beautiful epilator with unique ceramic tweezers. It has a lot of useful accessories and can be used as a hair trimmer. It is cordless, but can work as a corded model. Specialists from Phillips did a great job.
Pros
Rich complectation;
Unique ceramic tweezers;
Has built-in LED light;
Cordless;
Includes a pivoting head.
Cons
The process of epilation is pretty painful;
It can be used only for dry epilation;
There is no facial cap.
 

Philips Satinelle Prestige Wet & dry epilator – Best Epilator For Women of 2017

The Philips Satinelle Prestige is a powerful cordless epilator, that can provide you with both wet and dry cleaning.

First of all, I have to mention its design. It is a very beautiful epilator. It even won an IF Design Award! It has a pretty big and ergonomic housing made of high quality plastic.

The package of this model is truly prestigious: it has a whole bunch of various caps, a brush for body exfoliation, a cleaning brush, a storage pouch made of a nice material, a shaving head, an accessory head and a massage roller. Moreover, Phillips guarantees the full refund within 45 days after the purchase. You can return it if you won’t like something… but you will not want to lose such a good device.

The Philips Satinelle Prestige is not only beautiful, but also functional. There is a single button on the front of the handle, that turns it on or off and adjusts the speed. It has a low speed mode for careful epilation and fast speed mode for quick regular shave.

Unfortunately, this epilator doesn’t deal very good with small hairs. It has a wide and big head, so it is inconvenient to use for areas that are hard to reach. The device is also very noisy.

The device is completely waterproofed. Don’t be afraid to use it anywhere you want. You will be able to do it for one and a half hour straight – this is a great result! The epilator has a little icon on the handle, that starts to blink when battery is running low or during the charging.

Phillips uses ceramic tweezers. They look better and feel better. The head is pretty wide – you will be able to quicker clean large areas of your body. Above the tweezers you will find a built-in LED light.

This is a beautiful device. Seriously – it looks just fantastic. And Its rich complectation even allows to use it as a massager! Though it is not perfect for removing the smallest hairs, this is still a great tool.
Pros
Beautiful design;
Very rich complectation;
Fully waterproofed;
Long-lasting battery.
Cons
Noisy;
Is not suited for removing the smallest hairs.
 

Tria Beauty Hair Removal Laser Precision – Best Electric Epilator of 2017

The Tria Beauty Hair Removal Laser Precision is one of the newest and technological devices for home hair removal. This is, probably, the safest laser hair removal tool on the market – you can freely use it for your face and intimate areas.

This is a portable and lightweight laser epilator, made especially for those areas, where the usual epilators just won’t work as effectively. My girlfriend used it to remove her pubic hair – after a month I saw visible results – there were less hair, the density became lower. As you would expect, I really liked that.

The price is pretty high – but the device will pay off itself, since a single professional laser cleaning of the whole body costs ten times more.

Tria is one of the leader in the industry of home hair removal, so this product will meet all of your expectations. The device uses professional laser technology, that deliver up to 70% of hair reduction after 3 months of use. It is designed to target the pigment in your hair and forever disables its ability to regrow.

It should be used only for the most delicate and intimate parts of your body. It is simply inconvenient to use it for common legs epilation – the batter only lasts for fifteen minutes and the process of cleaning takes a pretty long time.

The package is simple: it includes the device itself, charging cord and an instruction manual. Device comes in two colors: pink and white. It has a single button on the front of the handle with small green indicators under it. I prefer the white version – I think, that it fits better with green lights, than the pink version.

This is a unique device. With it you can professionally take care of your skin at home. Carefully read the instructions before using it and you will be pleased with your results – after a few months of use you will notice, that unnecessary hair is growing much slower now and its density is decreased.
Pros
The safest laser hair removal;
Is made for sensitive and delicate areas;
No ongoing costs.
Cons
The battery lasts only for 15 minutes;
It shouldn’t be used for larger body areas.
 

Panasonic ES-WD51-P Ladies Wet/Dry Epilator – Best Epilator For Legs of 2017

The Panasonic ES-WD51-P is a compact ladies’ epilator designed especially for women who travel very often. It has a plethora of features, which make it one of the best tool for hair removal among the compact models.

It has standard functions for a high-end epilator: built-in smartlight, two speed modes, trimmer and shaver heads, a pedicure buffer, a cleaning brush and a really nice travel case. The device is colored in red – it’s tiny and beautiful.

The Panasonic ES-WD51-P provides you with both wet and dry cleaning. It has 48 tweezers – this is a pretty high number, so the epilating process will be more efficient and less painful. I recommend you to use it under the shower or in a bathtub – warm water eases the pain very well, so you will not feel any discomfort. Don’t be afraid to use various foams and gels – the epilator won’t break or get blunt. After the use it can be easily cleaned with water.

Sadly, it can not be used during the charging process. The epilator simply will not start. Also, it is pretty noisy.

Moreover, this device can be used as a shaver, trimmer or a pedicure buffer. It is very convenient to have so many devices in one! You can remove hair from sensitive areas using the first speed and the gentle cap, clean your legs at the second speed, and then trim your face using the trimmer head. Irreplaceable tool in travel!

It is cordless and can work without a recharge for up to 45 minutes. This is more than enough for a casual epilating procedure.

Many attachments;
Convenient travel case.
Cons
Can’t be used during the charging process;
A bit pricey.
 

Remington iLIGHT Pro Hair Removal System – Best Rotary Epilator of 2017

The Remington iLIGHT Pro Hair Removal System justifies its name very well. It is really a whole professional system, that gives you the effect, comparable with procedures in professional clinics. It will deliver result lasting for half a year – there will be no annoying black dots, that stays after the use of an ordinary epilator. iLIGHT Pro will accurately remove them without pain in a matter of minutes.

The price is pretty low when compared to other laser hair removal machines. The reason is because It uses the Intense pulsed light technology instead of an actual laser. I can’t say if it is bad or no – it still does great job at removing unnecessary hair. Some people say, that laser is a lot better and IPL technology doesn’t work. Don’t listen to them! This machine is the living proof that IPL does bring good results.

Keep in mind, that The Remington iLIGHT Pro Hair Removal System uses the cartridge. You have to replace it from time to time. Fortunately, it is not very expensive – I recommend you to buy a couple of extra cartridges in order to forget about this problem for a few years.

It uses a power cord. Usually laser machines have small batteries, that you have to recharge every 30 minutes. Moreover, you are not able to use as corded devices. This is the reason, why I enjoy that it uses an electric outlet.

It works, as the manufacturer says it would: after a month of use my girlfriend noticed, that there is much less hair on her legs. It will grow again, but after six months – it means, that a simple procedure twice a year can completely eliminate your problems with excessive hair.

This is one of the cheapest hair removal machine for the home use, that provides users with professional care, that can be compared with the level of procedures in professional clinics, which require big amounts of money.
Pros
Completely removes black dots;
Very quiet;
Looks nice;
Good build.
Cons
You will have to replace the cartridge every now and then.
 

Braun SE7281WD Xpressive Body System Rechargeable Wet & Dry Epilator – Epilator For Bikini

The Braun SE7281WD Xpressive Body System is a cordless epilator, that can be used for both wet and dry epilation procedures.

It has two speed modes – one for the delicate epilation of intimate and sensitive zones and one for the common epilation of larger areas of body. Its flexible head pivots up to fifteen degrees back and forward. It perfectly adapts to the contours of every body and provides the smoothest and the most efficient epilation. The device also can be used as a facial trimmer.

It can be used in the shower or bath – this is extremely important for people with sensitive skin, since the warm water will soothe the pain. Furthermore, you can use various foams and gels to receive an even better experience.

Though the Braun SE7281WD Xpressive Body System can work as a corded device, it becomes not so effective – it looks like it slows down when it has low charge. It also heats very much – I have to turn it off for some time during the long epilation process in order to let it cool down a little bit.

The package of The Braun SE7281WD Xpressive Body System includes various caps. There are caps designed especially for the beginners (they cause less pain, but may be not the most effective), underarm cap for removing armpit hair, and an efficiency cap for the fast daily epilation procedures. In the box you will also find a nice pouch, a cleaning brush and the cord for recharging. As the additional bonus you will get a set of Olay Pre-Epilation wipes. I have a very sensitive skin, so they came in very handy for me.

It is cordless – you can use it for up to 40 minutes without a recharge. It can also be used as a corded device.

Overall, this is an effective product with a good price/quality ratio. I especially liked the underarm cap, since I mostly use the epilator for removing armpit hair. It provides me with painless and effective epilation procedures.
Pros
Good build;
Convenient caps;
Fully waterproofed.
Cons
Sometimes it overheats, especially when you use it as a corded epilator.
 

LumaRx IPL Hair Removal Device for epilating pubic area

The LumaRx IPL is a hair removal machine for the whole body. It uses the Intense pulsed light technology, that removes excessive hair for a long period. It is suitable for the whole body and for the female facial hair (not male) for people with medium skin tones and dark hair. The machine is corded – you will not need to worry about the level of charge. I do not like cordless IPL machines, because they tend to lose charge very quickly – in 30 minutes. I think that it is more convenient to find a place near an electric outlet and complete the procedure in peace.

Unlike the most home IPL machines, this one has a big treatment window, which can cover larger areas of your body (my girlfriend needs only fifteen minutes for a careful treatment of one leg. This is pretty fast – with other budget hair removal machines it would have lasted the eternity.

It has five different levels of power, so anyone would be able to find the most suitable level for himself. I recommend using the lower levels for sensitive areas, because the higher level can cause discomfort.

Yeah, they are easy to find on market. I guess, because nobody buys them – they are very expensive! You can buy a nice new epilator at the cost of it!

Device also has two interchangeable caps – one of them is expected to be used for the face, and one – for the body. Facial cap will save your skin from irritation. Attention! Keep it away from eyes – as far as possible!

The LumaRx IPL uses a big flash cartridge, that will last for a year of use. Cartridges are easy to find on market.

This is a very good device for the professional hair removal at home. Unlike other budget hair removal machines, it can be successfully used for the large areas of body.
Pros
It has several caps;
There are five levels of power;
The capacity of cartridge is enough for a year of use.
Cons
Replaceable cartridge is very expensive!
 

Remington iLIGHT Ultra Face and Body Hair Removal System – Best Painless Epilator of 2017

The Remington iLIGHT Ultra Face and Body Hair Removal System is another great IPL machine from the time-tested manufacturer. It provides users with a good amount of treatments – mostly for smaller areas. It is perfect for facial hair removal – but do not forget to use the special glasses in order to save your eyes from the laser beam.

The manufacturer offers 3-year warranty – this is the longest period I know among all home hair removal machines – so do not be afraid – you won’t have an expensive piece of plastic if it breaks down.

The Remington iLIGHT Ultra has so-called “infinity bulb”, that will last for roughly fifty full body procedure – it means, that it should last for around three years of use! This is the great amount of time. If you are a going to use it only for smaller areas, then it should last for the whole seven years! This is the best result among the IPL devices on the market.

You can not use it on darker skin tones and the cord can be very annoying sometimes. Moreover, the cartridge is irreplaceable – so you can use this device only for a limited amount of time.

This device offers all the safety and treatment features that can be provided by the Intense pulsed light technology. I want to especially mention the built-in UV skin protection – many cheap machines do not have this very needed function. It also has two caps – one for the body and one for the face.

My girlfriend has used this machine on her lip, arms and legs. After a month of use there was not a sing of a single hair! This is a truly fascinating result.

This is a great and reliable product from a well-known and trustworthy brand. The Remington iLIGHT Ultra Face and Body Hair Removal System considered as one of the best IPL machines at this price range.

Choice criteria. The basic selection criteria.

In order to attract more customers, manufacturers produce models with richer functionality. As a result, consumers who are unfamiliar with the basic requirements for the quality work of devices, decide to make the choice according to the simple scheme – the more complex the better.

The more various functions a device has the more expensive it is, and you would not use the most of them anyway, so it is better to not follow that rule.

So, let’s review the most important things you should pay attention to:

Buying guide. Main types of working principles for epilators

No matter, what functionality the specific model has, but the main task for every one of them is the same – removing hairs with its follicle. It is done by rotating tweezers or discs. During rotation they rub against each other, grasping and removing hair. Correspondingly, epilators are divided into two types: epilators with rotating discs and epilators with tweezers (spiral wires). Let us consider their differences.

Both types remove lots of hairs at one:

Discs epilators remove up to 32 hairs;

Spiral wire/tweezer epilator remove up to 20/40 hairs.

Naturally, the larger the number, the faster the process. Consultants at the same time note that the disc work a little better, and acquire more than 40-pincer plate. Therefore, my advice is to choose disk model, or the one with 40 tweezers.

I really recommend you to choose the 40 tweezers model. This will speed up the process of depilation itself, that is painful anyway.

By the way, disc epilators create absolutely zero risk of causing an allergic reaction, that often is accompanied by the appearance of skin flushing. Anyway, there are instructions on how to avoid it.

Methods of pain relief

There are plenty of rumors and messages considering the pain, which is caused by the epilation procedure. But many customers also confirm, that they get “4 weeks of the smooth and clean skin on their legs”, and the amount of epilators sold increases.

It’s about time to look, what models are able to ease the pain of the whole process, since manufacturers surely are looking for more reliable methods for convenient use of devices.

Cooling – you can apply a small bag of gel (which you have to put into the fridge before the epilating procedure). Also, users have remarked the possibility of replacing them with chilled towels or ice packs.

Air cooling – there is a type of epilators with a special numbing system, which provides user with a flow of cool air. Mainly it is produced by “Phillips”. A good choice for people with sensitive skin.

Vibromassage – during an epilating procedure it relaxes the skin, significantly reducing the pain. Users particularly note the high-quality work of this function in Braun epilators.

The marking, which indicates the existence of anesthetic block from different manufacturers, is being written differently:

Speed setting

The very first models of epilators only had one speed setting, that you had to use all the time. Nowadays most of the epilators come with two various speed settings, but some of “Roventa” models have three speed settings.

First speed – Slow. It is mostly used for removing thin and stiff hairs. It is not suitable for long hairs, because it is not pulling them, but simply breaking.

Second speed – Normal. It suits for the longer hairs. The inertia of an attachment head lets to carefully grasp them and pull it out from follicles with a single stroke.

Third speed – Fast. Is used for fast and efficient epilating procedure, increasing the level pf pain.

Inspecting the epilation head

As the hair removal procedure involves getting micro skin irritations, the hygiene comes to the fore.

The power type

There are only two types of power: cordless or corded.

Make your choice, considering the need to take the epilator for travel and it is necessary to use it near the outlet. Also read user reviews, that mention that battery life is only thirty minutes long, since this time will not be enough for the whole procedure.

Additional settings and attachments

Next, consider the supporting points that you can draw a conclusion about the need for “bloat” in a selectable device.

Built-in light. This is a relatively new function, that is made to help removing thin hairs.

Attachment for those who is only starting to use it.

The idea of these attachments is simple – they cover some tweezers, so they are simply not used during the work. At first the lesser number of simultaneous tweezer strokes will soothe the pain. Look for yourself – it will not save you from pain completely, so you do not have to look for the device with this feature.

Choosing your very first epilator. The best tips for beginners.

Beginners should keep in mind that hair removal with an epilator can be pretty harmful. Since everyone has different pain threshold, somebody can even use it even for intimate areas, and some people can not use it at all. It is good if you had an opportunity to try the device before buying it.

Before going to store, check all of our advices – that can be very useful.

If you are buying an epilator for the first time in your life and you couldn’t try it before the purchase, I recommend you to use the most budget option; if you won’t be able to use it, you will at least save some money.

For example, an epilator with massage rollers and an additional trimmer head.

The package may include:

Cap for beginners – it eases the epilation process for novice users. I think, that it is useless.

Massage rollers – made to ease the pain during a procedure. The effect is not very significant.

Shaving head – it can be used instead of the epilating head. So, buying a device with this thing, you get 2 devices in one: both an epilator and a shaver. This is pretty convenient. Remove hair on legs and then use the shaver for more delicate areas.

Heads for sensitive areas. There are 2 types: that should be put on the default head and removable, which are used instead of it.

Phillips epilators have a useful cooling bag. Put it into a fridge for 40 minutes in order to minimizes the pain. It will be much comfortable to use ice on treated areas – especially when you have a soft skin.

Decide for yourself, what attachments do you need, and what are simply useless and do not worth buying. There are hundreds of choices – you will undoubtedly find the best for you.

In an addition to epilators there are cooling aids! They should be used after the epilation procedure. I really like their nice cold feelings on the freshly treated skin.

Famous manufacturers – “Panasonic” and “Braun” – produced the special line of epilators, that can be used in water – this is significantly decreases the level of pain. You can use such a device right in the bath or shower. The author of this text had the opportunity to try out on himself epilators of nearly all manufacturers and therefore I can say for sure, that wet hair removal is much less painful. To check it itself, try to use an epilator in shower. You can minimize the pain during the epilation, using foams or gels.

In conclusion I would like to give some tips regarding the epilation procedure itself. Of course, we are all unique and individual, but there are some days, when the threshold of pain is pretty high. Moreover, we are less susceptible to pain in the morning than in the evening.

It is recommended to steam the skin and do piling – this way hairs will be more easily removed. Piling should be done regularly in order to deny the appearance of unwanted hair.

After finishing the procedure, it is recommended to treat the zones of hair removal with soft lotion, which is good for your skin.

Choosing the best facial epilator

Every woman faces the problem of removing excess hair on her face.

Whether it’s the eyebrows, mustache on his upper lip, chin, cheeks and décolleté. Hair removal with tweezers solve the problem only when it is necessary to correct the eyebrows or remove hair above the lip. If the hair is much longer, the procedure for their removal becomes a real torture for women. Therefore, a universal means to combat excess hair on his face are epilators.

Can you remove facial hair with epilator?

Many women believe that the epilator is only designed to remove hair from the bikini area and underarms. But this is not the case. After all, the problem of extra hairs is not limited to only these areas of the body. Manufacturers have taken care of this and released a series of special epilators-correctors for the face. The sensitivity of the facial skin has been accounted for, so during development epilators are added options that help to eliminate discomfort during and after the hair removal procedure.

Facial epilator removes hairs from the follicles, and the cleaning brush ensures the deep cleaning of the head afterwards. With only one instrument your face will be flawless, radiant, perfect.

The epilator is designed to remove hair in the face area, it has many advantages, which were confirmed by reviews of women, using this device:

Duration of the result. After the hair removal with the help of this device the hair does not grow around 2-3 weeks, which is quite a long period.

The device allows you reach and pluck hairs in hard to reach areas. Using the epilator, you can easily clean the excess hair from all over your face, and remove hairs from the nose.

There is no skin irritation after the operation, since the epilator does not get in contact with the skin surface.

The epilator is capable of removing as small, fine hairs, and large and coarse hair.

No need to spend money on the supplies that are required in other methods of hair removal.

The following factors can be attributed to shortcomings of hair removal epilator:

The pain. Since parts of the face have increased sensitivity, the hair pulling is inevitably accompanied by tenderness.
