Epilady, The First Epilator? Talk about revisionist history!

When you ad department types come here to hawk your products, would you please try to stick to the facts, and maybe attempt to give some GOOD INFORMATION instead of just screaming BUY OUR PRODUCT(S)!

Why don't I do the customers a service and remind them that the original Epilady was a $70 rotating coil that was purposely designed so that one could NOT remove the coil for cleaning, so that it would also be regulated as a "Personal Care Item" that could not legally be returned to a store once it was opened. By not having a way to clean or replace the coil, it became like buying underwear. Once you open the package, only the manufacturer can give you a refund, the store can not.

This increased their sales, as everyone who bought one, used it for 30 seconds, and stormed back to the store was informed that there was nothing the store could do, as they could not take it back if they wanted to. Strangely, the Isreali makers of the product wanted nothing to do with the angry customers, and many people were hopping made, but $70.00 poorer for the experience.

I bought a Philips Satinelle HP6400 yesterday with the intention of eventually using it all over my body. I'm a guy with kind of a hairy chest and belly, which is where I've been using it since last night. Still not done. Jesus, this is painful.

However, looking over the damage, I find my skin looks as it did when I used to use those Nair wax strips. I'm feeling optimistic.

Anyway, back to it. I need to finish this sometime today.

EDIT: BTW, the total with shipping came out to under $30 for a product being sold in the $40-$70 range..you guys might want to jump on this deal, but it might be more prudent to wait for my review. Up to you!

I was looking into buying the Braun 5270 X'elle Body System Epilator for the longest time, and I was waiting for it to go down in prize on Amazon.
Stupidly, I waited so long it got discontinued or something. Hahah!
Does anyone here have good recommendations for another epilator?

I would not epilate. I read your other post. Epilators cause the hair follicles to become distorted and also break a lot of hairs instead of pulling them out.

What do you do with your legs at the moment?

I shave them. The hair is pretty dark and thick in most spots there, and it grows pretty unevenly.
What would you recommend?

I would wax. With the help of some youtube video's and practice, you can learn how to wax yourself.

You can buy professional student starter kits that come with a small wax heater, some different kinds of waxes to start you off with, spatula's and cloth strips etc. There are some brands of wax that can remove short hairs of a few mm in length.

Whatever you do, you need to exfoliate regularly, say 2-3 times a week on dry skin using a mitt like this:
http://www.adorebeauty.com.au/adorebeauty/product/5465/Riffi+Original+Exfoliating+Mitt/

And moisturise daily after showing. With a body moisturiser or even better, something like Rosehip oil which will help fade the discolouration and improve the tone of your skin.

Also, are you sure you cannot save up for some Laser? If done right, I think even two treatments on the legs can get you a decent reduction. Enough to make shaving or waxing more bearable. My lower legs were done in three. You can read the thread linked in my signature.
