This money saver is a a wet/dry epilator which gives silky-smooth results that lasts up to four weeks. It performs with less pain and irritation by holding down the skin and removing the hair, not shaving it, removing as in waxing. It has pivoting head that provides side-to-side gliding motion, which really helps in a smoother more in depth epilation. Its three-in-one hair removal system with epilator, shaver, and bikini trimmer is very versatile, but I usually stick with the epilator only. Best of all it is rechargeable!!, you cannot beat the cordless convenience. In the beggining you will need to epilate every week, since you can pull the longer hairs out but in a week the other hairs will have grown. After the initial 3-4 times you will succed in getting smooth legs with no bumps. The instructions recommend using the shaver head for the bikini area, but that would have defeated the purpose of my purchase, so I tried the epilator head on the bikini area too. Since this area is more sensitive, it was a bit more painful, but still ok to do as long as your hairs are neither too long nor too short. Be very diligent in cleaning this epilator after each use and it should last as new forever :) Enjoy smooth!
