I bought a Braun Silk Epil 5270 back in early November. It comes with one of those new little spot lights which is a really neat addition to epilators as it lets you see hairs that normal indoor light won't.
BTW, I'm a guy and remove my body hair mainly to help keep control of achne that I get on my legs, arms and chest. Removing the hair helps with keeping the scabs from prematurely coming off. I also love the smooth skin. I'm also practicing up for my debut in soft-core porn...no just kidding...
Anyway, the 5270 has 40 tweezers in its rotating barrel. Apparently 20 more than an earlier model.
When I first started epilating (from shaving), it took me about a week to get totally clear/smooth, as each day I was finding new hair growth cycles. Since then, I have just done daily or so touch ups as regrowth appears from weeks prior. In any case, it's way better than shaving which would be an total body everyday experience. I couldn't keep my skin smooth for more than 24 hours. With epilating I can keep the majority of my skin smooth for weeks with just the occassional touch-ups as hairs grow back.
