I received this as a gift and immediately fell in love! I've tried plucking, waxing, shaving, cream hair removers and those pads you put on your hand and rub the hair away; nothing was quite as effective as the Remington Epilator.
When you first open your package, you charge it for about 8 hours I believe. After that, you epilate away!
Epilating is like a bunch of little tweezers that spin around super fast and get the hairs out by the root. The nice thing about this is that it only pulls the hair, not the skin - like waxing, so it's not as irritating.
My skin is very sensitive, but after epilating, I don't end up with a painful rash!
Pain you say? It depends on how much you can tolerate. If you are very sensitive, take some Advil or Tylenol about an hour before, you can also try a cold pack before epilating, just make sure to dry the area before you epilate.
I have very course hair that grows back literally the same day I have shaved. After epilating, it usually lasts about 3 weeks.
It's always best to exfoliate afterwards to avoid ingrowns, but with all hair removal, sometimes it can't be avoided!
What I like about this product is that you can plug it in to charge and still use it. Once it's fully charged, you remove it and can epilate anywhere, just try to avoid public places :P
It is a bit noisy, but it's not that bad, that's probably the only thing I would change, but it's worth it!
It also has these little rubber things on it that act as massagers, to help soothe the skin, it really does make a difference.
Another great thing is that with each time you epilate, the hair gets thinner! Some of my hair hasn't even grown back, how awesome is that?
So try it out, it's great, there's nothing to lose but HAIR!
Thanks for reading and happy epilating!!
