Reasons for taking the plunge! --------------------------------------- Like most of us ladies (and some men?!!) we are always looking for ways to remove unwanted hair and I am no different! For years I have shaved my legs and underarms and experienced the pain of waxing the bikini line! I was fed up with the tiresome job of shaving my legs every other day and an epilator was recommended to me by a friend. I decided to do a bit of research and was at first quite shocked at the prices of these 'torture tools'! However the promise of smooth legs for up to four weeks was too much of a temptation so I took the plunge! I decided on the Silk-epil ... Read the complete review

So, epilation HURTS, that has to be the first point. But it is effective. I started epilating about 3years ago when I moved into a flat share (7people, one bathroom), so spending time shaving my legs and what not in the shower with a cue of people waiting was just a no no. So, I tried out waxing and just ended up making a mess and not really getting rid of any hair. Whilst the epilator works on a similiar method to waxing by plucking out the hairs, it is more controllable, it doesn't have that whole thing of right, ok, 1...2....3! As happens when ripping off a wax strip. So, this epilator comes with some different heads, one is a starter head (with ... Read the complete review

I started looking for an epilator at the beginning of last summer (2009) as I was going on holiday and, knowing I was going to be wearing a bikini, wanted something to remove unwanted hair easily and quickly. Up until I bought this epilator I used to shave my legs/ bikini line which, although is very quick and easy, only stays smooth for one day and causes painful red spots and ingrown hairs. I considered waxing but never quite plucked up the courage and thought an epilator seemed a slightly less severe alternative. I chose this epilator because of its reasonably low price in comparison to others. It comes with two different heads and combs, which fix on top ... Read the complete review

After getting sick of shaving my legs every day to keep that stubble-free feel, I started to search for other ways of hair removal. I dismissed the hassle of waxing, the messiness of hair removal creams and the expense of electrolysis. Then I came accross the Braun Silk-Epil online and after reading other consumer reviews, decided to take the plunge and treated myself to one. What attracted me to this particular model was the 'Easy Start' kit that was included which consists of a cooling glove which you freeze before use, an easy-start head (with less tweezers in) and massaging roller attachment. So I froze the glove in the freezer and ... Read the complete review

Shaving your legs daily is not something I imagine most women enjoy having to do, however, it is necessary (well for most of us anyway). I used to use razors and shaving gel but no matter what razors I used, whether they be cheap or expensive ones, I always ended up with a horrible razor-burn type rash on my calves...not attractive. I tried waxing them once but only managed half a leg before I could take the pain no longer. I had been pondering over whether to buy one of these bad boys for some time - after all they are quite expensive for what is pretty much just a giant tweezer - but it's not like you can return it just because it hurts. Anyhoo, I finally ... Read the complete review
