It's easier to epilate if your hair is short, like after shaving. But a few days after shaving. But once you do epilate and get yourself fairly clear of hair, the regrowth is sparse and generally fine, and touching up is a breeze and a joy really. Even feels good actually.

See my other posts.

The All New Braun Silk-Úpil 7 with 47 tweezers now and can be used in the bath as well, is positively (in my opinion) the best ever epilator! Three months use now, no ingrown hairs at all, and my (male) legs are silky smooth for a week at a time and the re-growth is sparse and fine. (getting finer all the time!) Love it! Works on my chest and other intimate areas too!

I watched the video and this looks like a very cool product. I might get one just for fun.

Ugh. I hate epilators.

Also, why does this feel like advertising?

Probably because it is advertising?

I never used one of those things, but there was one "tear out the hair" unit that ... well, you could hold up a bank with the thing! EEEEEKKKK!

love the fact it can be used in the bath i thought that soaking hair in water made it more elastic and probably slippy and then you are going to try and pull it out with a rotary epilator did i miss something ?

I use to use an epilator and hated it because ingrowing hairs and grazes. When doing intimate bits you have to be extremely careful incase the scrotum gets jammed up in the epilator ouch! I have had 5 laser hair removal treatments with an alex and everything is feeling very smooth and far outclasses shaving, waxing and depilating. Still got some areas that have been missed i.e. strips of hair that need sorting out and some grey hair to be removed down there by electrolysis after I finish my LHR.

I am NOT ADVERTISING!!!!!! I HAVE FOUND A PRODUCT THAT WORKS FOR ME I hate people thinking that just because I found a product that works, and I tell others, that it must be an ADVERT, stuff all of you moaners..... All I was saying is that this epilator works for me and I am hair free a LOT longer (7 days!) than daily shaving!!! Stop bitching!!!!

Well, when you post many times and have the same story over-and-over it LOOKS like spam. No bitching, just maybe ONE post would be enough?

^Exactly.

----

Having used epilators for a good 10 years and more models than I care to remember from Philips, Braun and Remington (anyone remember the rotating rubber with nicks in it??), my personal opinion is that I would not recommend them to anyone.

Sure, it all seems great in the beginning but when you start to get ingrowns, they are the most horrible sort you can get. My underarms and bikini line skin is permanently messed up from all the cysts I had.
