I use this to remove my arm pit hair mostly and it works very well in that regard. I like to sprinkle a little powder before epilating. I feel it helps to reduce the pain and makes it easier to work the epilator.

I haven't had much success using it on my leg hair though. My skin is kind of red and bumpy after that and most of my leg hair just break off. I'm hoping it's …

I would not recommend this for sensitive areas as it hurts a lot. I tried it on my chin hair and it didn't really work, probably because the area is not taught enough, It would hardly get any of the hairs out and it hurt a lot. That being said I just decided to try it on my legs and it works great, it is not painful on the legs, because they are not such a sensitive area, easy to use and …Read more

After 2 years...Still using this device, haven't had to replace it. Still works well and still worth it. When new batteries are needed it loses effectiveness but works like new again once it has fresh batteries.

I have been using this for about a month on my armpits once a week. I used to shave my armpits when I didn't have time and plucked them when I did. Because I have experienced the pain of plucking individual hairs, the epilator was a dream come true! This method is so much faster, no pain at all and now my armpits stay very smooth for quite a while! The hairs are growing much less and much …Read more

I bought this to take care of my bikini line. I used to get regular waxes, but I'm really trying to save money right now, so I thought this would be a good substitute. Wrong! I can deal with the pain/discomfort, but what was making me mad is that it would pull the hairs, but they weren't coming out. It was only yanking them yet they were not coming out. And they were definitely long …Read more

This is my first epilator. I can't compare it to other epilators but I can say it's pretty awesome.

Works best on my underarms. I find it more painful and longer to do than waxing. But I have problems waxing my own armpits, and this is way more economical than getting waxed at a salon.

I rarely use on my bikini line. Aside from being so painful, it irritates …

This is probably the cheapest epilator out there, mostly because it's travel size and battery operated.
I've never tried epilators before so I didn't want to invest a lot of money in it. I used this for my underarms, and surprisingly epilating doesn't hurt as much as I thought, it's like a fast pricking, not nearly as painful as waxing.

The reason I give …

LOVE THIS EPILATOR! I use it on my upper lip & armpits & YES it is painful to use the first few times, but you eventually get used to it. Even after just using it for the first time, I noticed my armpit hair grew back slower & thinner. I used to wax my upper lip but it was so bad for my skin since I had extra sensitive skin right about my lip. I ordered this online from walmart & …Read more

I have been cursed with lots of snow white, fine hair all over my chin and upper lip. The hair is so fine that it is impossible to wax without taking a layer of skin off. I read about this little tool on Folica, and when I saw it at Sally Beauty Supply, decided to give it a try.

The good news is, it gets rid of the hair on my chin. I use it about once a week. It's not at all …
