Being new to epilation when I bought this product, I was slightly concerned about the potential pain factor. I wasn't wrong to be worried. I tried it on my legs first, and it stung slightly (like the first time you pluck your eyebrows), but it was pretty tolerable. However, when it came to the underarms, the pain was excruciating! To be honest, I wasn't sure I was actually going to be able to complete the task at hand. I don't consider my pain threshold to be unusually low, but this was certainly not a pleasant experience. My biggest mistake, however, was doing it first thing in the morning. Whilst it's a good idea, in my opinion, to use this product after a bath or ... Read the complete review

This is my very first epilator and as soon as I switched it on, I was terrified at how fast it was going. Surely, it would cut me somehow. I actually applied it onto my pyjamas first just to test it out and see if it was likely to whip my legs. I found that the pain was bearable, in fact I can barely call it pain. I've noticed that other reviewers have said that it is a little painful, but I disagree. But then again, I am used to waxing so that could be why. It took a little while to get used to this protect.

Pretty and pretty painful. There comes a point in every girls life where you just ask is it worth it!! I did have very high expectations for this product, thinking it was going to transform my life by being cost effective for the long term and giving me smoother legs for longer. The problem is that leg hairs all grow at different rates and once you have delt with the first painful treatment then more grown in its place. Some hairs always remain small and never reach the rotary tweezers leaving what could be best described as look but dont touch legs. It just does not give you a nice smooth legs when you finish never mind inbetween treatments when you have to let the Read the complete review

I have been epilating for around 5 years now as shaving brought me out in a rash and I hated the quick regrowth. I origanally borrowed my mums Braun silk epil which although was a painfull experience, did not leave me with a shaving rash. However with any epilator, I recommend doing an night after a hot shower (as the pores are more open and hairs come out easier), and cleanse them afterwards with a lotion. Also do not put deodarant on straight after!! However the Remington EP3000 is not the best epilator. Although I liked the design and colour, I found the motion very mechanical. It tugged at the hairs rather than whipped them out! This was very painful and caused the .. Read the complete review
