      It hurts but it works

      There is a correct way to epilate and my epilator came with instructions, but I threw them away because I thought it was too fiddly and following my own method of epilating in any direction until all the hairs have gone works just as well for me. I've had a few ingrown hairs on my legs but no more than I'd expect from this method of hair removal.

      This epilator has two speeds, I use both speeds each time I epilate because they are both effective in different ways. I start off using the lower speed then move onto the high speed when most of the hair has been removed, I only epilate my legs and use other methods of hair removal for my underarms. When I first put this to my leg the pain is quite severe but that first burst of pain numbs the rest and it quickly wears off, I can feel the hairs being pulled out but the epilator doesn't feel as harsh as it should considering it is pulling out your body hair.

      The epilator is comfortable to hold and easy to control across the contours of my legs. The longer I have used it the quicker the process is, I've learned to use the epilator in a time efficient way and also the hairs on my legs are so much finer now that they're easier and quicker to remove.

      The useless thing about this epilator is the built in light. It's nice and bright and sounds like a good innovation but it doesn't shine on the area of my leg where I'd need illumination and ends up being irritating, like when the sunlight hits your watch and you keep catching sight of the light bouncing off it in all different directions.

      I love the feel of my legs after I've epilated them, I like to be hair free and over time I'm having less and less hairs and those that are still there are finer and softer. When you epilate the hairs always have to grow back from scratch so the point of the hair is truly pointed, that automatically makes the hair less visible and softer than when you shave and the hair just grows to push the blunt cut end of the hair back out again. I have blonde hairs on my legs so they're not very obvious anyway but I am confident that by using this epilator I have made them even less obvious and not just because there are fewer hairs there now.

      Fast and effective.

      The Braun 5180 shaver was purchase for me by a family member as a gift because I am constantly always complaining about cutting my self with normal razors and how using normal razors is so time consuming. It really is a very great product but quite expensive as well. If you have the money to treat your self and hate using razors like me then you should invest in this product. It is so easy to figure out how to get it working and is so so quick to use and shaving is no longer a chore for you women. I also love that the Braun is designed to be small almost like a pebble shape so it is easy to hold and control in your hand as i have seen many that have been a ridiculously big size and they look so difficult to be able to hold and use at the same time .. and not to mention there is no more razor nicks and cuts with this product, it smooths across your skin and is completely pain free and a very fats process. Very suitable for lazy people like my self. At around £50 to 60 pounds in different shops depending on where you go I think it is such a small price to pay for such a good product and I have never had a problem with this Braun shaver before and don't expect to have any problem as it is of high quality and of a good brand name also.
