Great moisturizer, I have dry skin and it makes it look glowy and feel soft. One of the few inexpensive moisturizers I have used that actually makes skin feel soft all day, not just after applying. Will definitely rebuy
This review's for the Silk-epil xelle, which was $45 on clearance from drugstore.com. This comes with a regular epilating head (which has two speeds), a "starter" head with less tweezers, and a massage roller addition. I skipped the starter head and the massage rollers were useless. I have very fair skin and though my hair on my arms and legs is pretty fine, it grows back very quickly (get stubble within 24 hours after shaving). Update: this has continued to work great on my bikini line. I personally find it almost painless there. I finally tried it again on my legs (first time since previous review where my legs were horribly red and irritated for days) and this time got MUCH better results - it was about a month later so I had full regrowth, but I guess I just knew how to use it better. The best way, from what I'm seeing, is to go SLOWLY all the way up one half of your leg (or a quarter of your leg if you can't handle it), try to remember to keep breathing, and so on. First time I did short little strokes because of the pain and it took me 3 days to lose the red marks and my legs looked terrible - also, the pain is much better if you try to get it done quick. This time, I did it less than 24 hours ago and my legs have no redness. I find that shaving over them even when there's no hair left helps them feel a bit smoother, guess it just exfoliates off some of the skin that gets pulled around when the hairs are ripped out of your body...for me, the most painful area was the upper inside edges of my calves. I haven't tried my armpits because I don't mind shaving them but I might give it a go eventually. Can't really emphasize enough how awesome it is for the bikini line. Train yourself to get in an awkward squat position and you can get hairs towards the back you can't really see. However...I could never use this on the really innermost hairs - holy jesus it hurts so bad. Only way I can describe the feeling of an epilator getting near your labia is the same horrible panic sensation I imagine you would feel if you caught your hair in a blender in the moments immediately before a horrible death. I use this pretty regularly on my bikini line now and regrowth is so, so much less than before.
