Benefits of the Remington EP7030
- Can be used both in and out of the shower
- Remington Smooth & Silky reviews claim good results with facial hair for this face and body epilator.
- Reviewers say it works well on both fine and coarse hairs.
- Unlike some epilators which appear to only break the hairs off, this epilator is reported to actually remove the hair at the roots, as the roots are visible in the hair.
- Safety feature: it cannot be used plugged in, so you need to charge it before using it in water.
- According to review, its slower rotation speed, compared to some other face and body epilators, creates a much more effective epilating experience.
Disadvantages of the Remington EP7030
- The detail light, according to one epilator reviewer, can look somewhat purple-ish in places because of the colour of the plastic, and doesn’t show as much of the skin directly in front of the epilating head. The light seems a little far ahead of the area you are working on.
- One reviewer with coarse hair found it was not powerful enough to remove a lot of hair at a time.

Benefits of the Remington EP6010
