I got the Phillips HP 6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator as a gift from my husband. I have to say I was pretty thrilled with how elegant and feminine it looked just out of the box.
I also thought it was a good sign that it came with a lot of attachments.
I eagerly dumped everything out on the bathroom counter and plugged it in so I could use it right away, excited to try epilating for the first time.
Oh, holy night, did the first few passes at my legs leave me gritting my teeth trying not to howl in pain. I was unpleasantly surprised by how much it hurt when the dozens of little ceramic discs tore the hair off my legs by the roots. I have had my bikini line waxed, too, and thought that was as painful as it could get. Boy, was I wrong.
When I felt the strip of skin on my leg that I had used my new Phillips HP 6576 epilator it was as smooth as could be. I decided to finish the job. The massaging action is supposed to to make epilating less uncomfortable. Combined with the the speed control it was tolerable. The bikini line attachment made doing that area easier and I loved how smooth my legs felt when I finally finished.
I decided to try out the shaver head on my underarms. It worked great! Best shaver I have ever used.
While I was waiting for my new Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator to become fully charged I had the opportunity to check out the rest of the accessories that had come with it. I love the illuminated tweezers. They are so great at getting really tiny fine eyebrow hairs and I shaped my brows beautifully with them. It might be the best thing about the Phillips HP 6576 epilator. The entire package consist of:
If you are considering going the epilator route, the Phillips HP 6576 Satin Perfect is a good choice if you want all the attachments included, to be able to use it while it is charging and want a really great shave head. The very bright light on it helps you nab even the smallest hairs, even those you couldn’t have waxed yet.
The HP 6576 is NOT for you if you want to use it in the shower, your face or have a small budget. At over $100 it is a sizeable investment, but what do you spend on shaving products or waxing per year? You might be saving money over the long-term.
Speaking of your face, the product information online says it’s for face and body, but when you get the unit it says for use only from the neck down. What?
I don’t need to use it on my face, so this was not an issue for me, but it will be for men and girls with stray chin hairs.
The instruction sheet that came with my new Phillips epilator was ridiculously long and complicated to follow. I tossed it and just figured out how to get all the heads on (and off to wash) myself. If you have a degree from MIT you might find it useful.
I wanted to read what other people thought about the device so I checked out the Phillips HP 6576 reviews to be forewarned about any problems that might crop up. Most people loved the device and gave it 4 or 5 stars. Those who complained that it hurt, well, duh, it’s yanking your hairs out, there is going to be some pain.
I am concerned that a few reviews claimed that the battery life is short, but since you can use it while it’s charging that’s not a deal breaker for me.
Fast forward two weeks and my legs are still relatively hair free. I have had to touch up a few spots where it grew back faster, but it was not as uncomfortable as the first time I used it.
I like the fact that it has a travel lock so you can’t accidentally turn it on when it’s banging around in your gym bag.
Overall, I have to recommend this epilator and think the only thing missing that I see on other models around the same price is an exfoliating brush (check out the Braun 7921 if that is dealbreaker for you). It’s really important to exfoliate when you epilate to avoid ingrown hairs. It does have all the other bells and whistles, though, and is very stylish.
All in all, the Philips HP 6576 is a great option for those who want a top-rated epilator.
Not sure that the Philips is the right epilator for you? The search for the best epilator of 2016 continues here…
When I got the Emjoi Soft Caress Epilator in the mail I was immediately struck by how small it was.
Then I was worried that it might not have enough power to really do a good job. However, the Soft Caress came highly recommended and the price was right.
I was not sure I wanted to spend a fortune on an epilator in case it hurt too much to use or didn’t get the job done.
This epilator from Emjoi comes with 36 gold plated hypoallergenic tweezers to yank out hair by the roots, without irritating your sensitive skin. If you have really sensitive skin, epilating is not for you, but if your skin just has an aversion to some medals this is a great unit to try.
The whole design of the Emjoi Soft Caress corded epilator is very nice. Mine is a lovely light blue with graceful lines to fit the contours of your legs and body with gold plated tweezers that give it an elegant look. It’s a very fancy-schmancy looking device and I hoped it would work as good as it looked.
Here is what you get with this epilator:
The Emjoi Soft Caress corded epilator is not my first one. I actually had one of the models from awhile ago with the coils. I worked pretty good, but was really painful on certain areas and did not work well on the thicker hair around my ankles and bikini line.
I chose the Soft Caress because it was touted as the least painful epilator on the market. Reviews revealed quite a few comments from users that it was the least uncomfortable epilator they had ever used.
That information combined with the nice price (when compared to other makes and models), it seemed like a good fit for me.
I was really amazed at how little discomfort I felt when I fired up this little device. The massage fingers attachment really seemed to make a difference and I completely removed all the hair under my arms in about ten minutes with only a little bit of redness left behind. I used the lowest speed and tried to keep the skin stretched as tightly as possible, which helps you avoid pinching yourself with the tweezers.
The same was true for the upper half of my leg. The hair there is pretty thin and not very long but the Emjoi’s gold plated tweezers were able to grip and pull them out. Next I moved down to my lower legs where the hair is thickest around my ankles.
This Emjoi epilator did a better job on my lower legs than my old model, but it still took a lot of passes on the highest speed to get the hair off and some of it stubbornly stayed put. The same was true for my bikini line, which was disappointing because I had hoped to avoid waxing or shaving that area ever again.
I did dare to try it on my face, and was pleased by the way it quickly got rid of the fuzzy sideburns I get that are more noticeable in the winter because my skin is so pale. The slight redness it left behind quickly faded.
It is key to exfoliate regularly if you use an epilator because of the higher risk of getting ingrown hairs. The makers of the Emjoi Soft Caress thoughtfully provide a loofah with the unit to encourage scrubbing the areas you are going to exfoliate in the shower.
There are other more expensive model epilators (like the top-rated Braun 7921) that have an exfoliation brush head, which is probably pretty nice, but those are usually twice the cost. If you frequently develop ingrown hairs, stepping up to one of those models might help. Otherwise, just use a loofah regularly.
I ultimately did ordered a more expensive model epilator that would work better on removing my thicker more coarse hairs. I passed the Emjoi Soft Caress to my neighbor’s teen daughter in exchange for some babysitting.
I liked it, but needed something a bit more sophisticated to really remove the hair from my bikini line and lower legs. I do give the Emjoi props for how long my underarms and thighs stayed smoothly hair free (almost 3 weeks).
I would still recommend the Emjoi Soft Caress Rechargeable Epilator just because it didn’t completely work for me. This unit is for someone with less thick, coarse hair, who has a budget and wants something easy to use that’s portable.
It was perfect for my neighbor’s teen daughter who has thanked me three times for giving it to her. The Emjoi Soft Caress is very wallet-friendly, easy and comfortable to use and keep clean, and really does a good job on underarm and thinner hair.

I have been a fan of waxing rather than shaving my legs and underarms for many years. I loved it when I could afford to get hair removed by a laser, but beyond the expense it is time consuming and not always convenient.
Then I discovered the Panasonic ES-ED90-P Ladies Wet & Dry Epilator and fell in love!
I literally fell in love (we are married now) and moved to San Diego where the weather is nice all the time and my legs are bare most of the year. Shaving everyday got tiresome and having to suffer through days of stubble until it was long enough to get waxed was not cutting it either. I got a glowing recommendation for the Panasonic ES-ED 90-P Ladies Wet And Dry Epilator and decided to give it a try.
If you are new to epilating this is the Panasonic epilator for you. Epilating is a lot like waxing as it pulls the hair off your legs, bikini area, underarms, where ever, by the root! It is more painful than waxing, so beginners beware, but the results are fantastic and last a lot longer.
The Panasonic Epilator ES-ED 90 comes with a lot of attachments. The very best one is the beginner cap because it eases you into this new hygiene process. I foolishly skipped it when I made the first pass up my leg with my Panasonic ED-90 and almost passed out from the pain. After some deep breathing I put the beginner cap on and it was a lot less painful. Now I always use the cap for the first round of epilating and then finish without out it.
Another great reason I highly recommend the Panasonic ES-ED 90 epilator is that it comes with a great little attachment to exfoliate your feet! If you wear sandals all the time like I do now and want your feet to look good this is an excellent attachment. Just pop it on and go to town on calloused heels to keep them looking smooth.
There really are so many good things about the Panasonic ES-ED 90-P Ladies Wet Dry Epilator:
If you are a girlie-girl like me then you will appreciate that the Panasonic epilator ES-ED 90-P comes in pink and white with a nifty pouch to keep it all together.
The only drawback for me is that it does not work very well on my underarms. I find it awkward to hold the skin tight enough to keep the tweezers from pinching me there. I think it’s my technique more than the epilator, though. I usually only manage to get half the hairs out and end up shaving the rest down.
I am quite happy with my epilator, but my friend was not. I checked the Panasonic ES-ED 90-P reviews after she called to complain and found that she was not alone. She has super thin, fine hair all over her legs (not like me) and the epilator just could not seem to get a grip on them. A few other users reported the same issue, so this model works best for the really hairy girls like me, I guess.
Overall you will probably be very happy with a Panasonic ES-ED 90-P Ladies Wet And Dry Epilator. I love the beginner cap and that I can use it in the shower to make it less uncomfortable. You will love the way the foot care head because of how it makes your heels look after a good scrubbing, too. The price is right, especially when you consider that it comes with so many attachments that you would have to order separately and pay extra for.

If you want smooth legs without shaving everyday then an epilator might be right for you. With so many to choose from you can quickly get overwhelmed trying to decide what brand to get and with what accessories. I can help.
Braun is one of those companies that has been around since the stone age and they offer a huge variety of products, which explains why every device has such a long name. They have been in business so long because they make high quality products that work. The Braun 7181 Epilator is one such product.
If you are new to epilation for personal grooming then here is some quick information to get you ready for a whole new personal grooming process. An epilator removes hair by pulling it out from the root. It’s a lot like waxing, but a whole lot less painful and more effective.
The Braun 7181 Silk Epil Wet and Dry Epilator is the perfect first epilator because of it’s features, reliability and wallet-friendly price. This is a very basic model epilator from the Braun line but it gets the job done. The best feature on this particular model is that it can be used wet or dry. This type of versatility and portability make it easy to take with you and use anywhere. You are not tethered to a wall outlet.
The other feature the Braun 7181 Silk Epil Wet Dry offers that makes it a best buy is the two speeds you can use it at. If you are new to using an epilator I highly recommend the low speed until you get used to the sensation. However, when you kick it into high speed, it might be a bit more uncomfortable at first (and loud, but don’t be alarmed, that is normal) but it removes hair really fast, even the super short ones, in record time.
There are a lot of great features with this epilator even though it is Braun’s base model without some of the more expensive bells and whistles other have. With the Braun 7181 you get:
Before you commit to any epilator it’s a good idea to read what other users are saying about it. I have found that the Braun 7181 reviews are consistently favorable. The chief complaints are that it is loud, that it’s not good for under your arms and that their customer service is bad.
Well, it is loud, but not deafening and you get used to it. There are attachments for the bikini area and underarms but you have to order them separately. Honestly, it is just a matter of getting used to using it on the more delicate areas and with the lower speed.
I have never had a problem with my Braun 7181 so have never used their customer service. I have read about other users ordering from Amazon.com, and I have always loved the service I got from them.
There are certainly other epilator models from Braun and other companies, but the 7181 Silk-Epil Epilator is a really good buy for the money and beats the constant hassle of shaving everyday or paying for waxes every week or so. Once you get used to using it and having smooth hair free legs and other places for up to two weeks at a time, you will wonder how you ever got by without one.

The Braun Silk Epil Female Epilator se7921 spa hair removal device is the latest and greatest way to get rid of body hair and leave you with glowing skin and more free time.
If you are new to the term epilator, it just means removing the hair by plucking it out from the roots as opposed to shaving, which just cuts it off. Epilating is closer to waxing, but in my opinion, a lot less painful and the results last a lot longer.
Waxing is extremely painful to me. The home wax kits don’t do a good job on a lot of areas of the body and there is a lot more preparation and clean up involved.
Yes, the name is long, but the product makes “short” work of unwanted body hair. It efficiently removes stubble from your underarms, bikini line and the entire leg. I have read reviews from people who use it on their face, too. I don’t, only because I have no need to.
One of the best features on Braun Silk Epil 7921 model is the firmness and density of the exfoliating brush. It is especially important to exfoliate when you use an epilator to remove hair because it lessens the risk of ingrown hairs. Plus it leaves you skin soft and almost glowing when you are done.
There are a lot of great reasons to go with the se7921, though:
If you are shaving your unwanted body hair, you are doing it a lot, like everyday, for some. If you wax, then you are spending a lot of money and time to travel to get it done. Waxing at home is messy and never as effective as a pro can do in a salon.
Using the Braun se7921 model to remove hair will give you smoother legs longer for less. Less time and less money, if you account for the cost of waxing or buying shaving supplies over a year’s time and shopping for such things. That’s not even figuring in transportation costs, tipping or shipping fees.
Your time is worth something, too. Why not spend less than 20 minutes getting rid of hair with an epilator once a week (at the most-I get 10 days completely smooth) in the privacy of your own home with a device that does double duty? The Silk-Epil 7 Skinspa removes the hair gently while it massages your skin. It thoroughly exfoliates to cut your risk of developing ingrown hairs and makes your skin feel smoother and softer, too.
With the Smart Light feature you can use the Braun 7921 anywhere and get all the little hairs (as small as a grain of sand) in one or two passes. Then simply wash it thoroughly and let it dry overnight before you recharge it again. There’s no rush to recharge because you will be hair free for days and days.
I only found consistently good reviews for this model. Even people who had some problems with it being really painful (it can be at first, but the more you epilate, the easier and more comfortable it becomes) kept using it because it does such a great job. In fact, it consistently receives 4 to 4.5 stars from reviewers.
Some issues people had with this Braun epilator are true of any epilating device. If you don’t hold the skin taught under your arms it will pinch it. Don’t use it the first few times dry because that is more uncomfortable. Using it in a warm shower initially makes it easier to get used to the sensation of the hairs being plucked out by the roots. Over time the hair grows back slower and thinner making future epilation faster and easier.
This is the perfect hair remover for someone who wants to spend less time on personal grooming by combining hair removal with exfoliation. I use the brush on me heels and elbows to keep them soft too. It’s totally portable for travel and you can use it anywhere, not just in the shower.
I give the Braun Silk Epil Female Epilator se7921spa my highest recommendation because of the ease of use, and great long lasting results. The vibration as it removes hair feels good and lessens any discomfort. The densely bristled brush exfoliates really well, which is essential for avoiding excessive ingrown hairs. Now I have more time to spend at the pool, the beach doing whatever instead of constantly shaving or waxing.

Whether you’re shaving, using a cream, or waxing, it can get exhausting just trying to stay on top of your appearance and getting rid of those annoying little hairs.
Today we will be discussing the Braun SE7681 Silk-epil Wet and Dry epilator.
When we picked up the 7681 from Braun, we already knew about the kind of hype it was getting. Touted as “the most efficient wet & dry epilator” on the market, it can be used while having a bath or shower, or even afterwards.
To be honest, though, using it while hair is as soft as possible not only makes the process much easier, but also much less painful.
40 tiny close-up tweezers provide fantastic accuracy, meaning that hairs as fine as half a centimetre thick can still be removed from the root for up to 4 weeks.
The fact that it’s cordless is a very convenient touch, and the adjustable speed provides a much greater feeling of control and safety than some other epilators on the market. The High Frequency Massage feature and Pivoting Head also add to the comfort of using the Silk-epil 7 by making the plucking of hairs much easier, and by providing a flexible head that can pivot by up to 15 degrees.
Included in the box is the Silk-epil 7681 itself, an optional shaver head, trimmer cap, sensitive-area cap (highly recommended!), facial cap, efficiency cap, pre-epilation wipes, and a storage pouch. Each accessory is definitely useful for its purpose, and we highly recommend you use each of them as advised by the instruction manual.
On removing the Braun from its packaging, the first thing we realised was how stupidly easy to use it is. We gave it a quick test run on our arms, and noticed right away that it was very intuitive to control and caused very little discomfort. Even the shorter hairs which we thought would be missed were completely gone.
Right away, we started discussing how much more beneficial the Braun 7681 epilator is when compared to waxing. It’s cheaper (both in terms of per session price and long-term investment), and it manages to remove the hairs that waxing just won’t pick up.
In terms of actual use, it can be a little painful when using it for an extended period of time. Follicles will go red, but after a short while they’ll fade away. You may also notice some dry skin, although to be honest this is nothing you can’t fix with some moisturiser.
We found that after using the Silk-epil 7, you can realistically expect hair to be gone for a week. After that, you’ll start noticing that they’re growing back. However, thanks to the relatively pain-free process of using this epilator, it’s easy enough to quickly go over each area again before heading out for the evening.
While we were slightly dissappointed to see that our skin wasn’t as smooth as it would be when shaving, the hair is showing much slower signs of growth and they are much finer than before too.
The 7681 costs significantly less and you can expect it to last much longer, too.
We really love that it can offer such an enjoyable and pain-free experience, especially considering that it’s so effective. If you’re going to use it around your bikini area, remember to lubricate the patch of hair first with some kind of petroleum-based oil.
If hair is too dry, it can be an extremely painful and — depending on the area concerned — concerning experience! We’d also like to quickly point out that you should avoid using tea tree oil directly after epilating, as the combination of recently plucked skin and tea tree vapors can result is some severe discomfort!
The 7681 is a definite recommendation from us. It’s a great product that makes the process of meaningful hair removal much easier, with less discomfort, awkwardness, and pain. It’s definitely not the cheapest model on the market, but the benefits you’ll experience compared to some of its competitors make it a genuine bargain. Don’t skimp on an epilator, buy a Braun Silk-epil 7681!

Every woman wishes she could find that one product that can not only get rid of body hair, but can keep the hair and coarseness away for weeks. There are so many products out there that claim to do just that, but most of them are just a waste of money.
I have some good news for you: the Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator really is a great device for getting rid of unwanted facial and body hair for women!
It’s designed for the smoothest operation imaginable, so you won’t have to worry about rashes or irritation.
It works wirelessly for up to 40 minutes after a quick one-hour charge. The head is washable for maximum hygiene. You can simply detach it and place it under running water.
Let us take a look at some of the many benefits I’ve experienced by the Deluxe Epilator by Philips.
With features such as the built-in Opti-light and pivoting technology, the finest hairs are revealed and eliminated. The performance cap is designed to pivot and contour against the skin. The ergonomic design enables the device to be kept at an ideal angle. A stretch bar lifts and prepares the hair for easy removal.
The removal process is made smooth and easy thanks to 32 textured ceramic discs, which grip the hair and prevent any strand from getting away or slipping through.
During the process, the Philips Epilator utilizes a massaging system to gently vibrate and stimulate the skin. The speed control technology maintains the ideal speed through the hair removal process, although it can be manually controlled as well. The hair-lifting technology also allows for flat-lying hairs to be removed.
A razor and trimmer are both included to provide a smooth shaving and trimming experience. The tweezers are stylishly designed and come with the aforementioned LED light for illuminating the eyebrow area or any other part of the face or body so that you can see every last hair that needs to be removed.
In addition to the eyebrows, you can also remove hair in areas such as the upper lip, bikini area, back of knees, etc. The discs, which are hypoallergenic and made of textured ceramic, are designed to remove the hairs comfortably. You can finally get rid of annoying hairs in such places without any discomfort or pain!
There is no need to spend a bunch of money on regular wax jobs, since you can eliminate unwanted hairs on your face and body yourself. The process is simplified, and the results last for up to four weeks. You also won’t waste any more money on products or creams that don’t work as effectively as the Deluxe Epilator.
You don’t have to keep it in the bathroom. The cordless operation means that you can just toss the device in your gym bag or suitcase and take it with you wherever you go.
In short, the Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator is a versatile device, with its hair lifter function, massage system, cleaning brush, trimming comb, and intuitive tweezers with lights. The charger, storage pouch, and cleaning brush are included.
The best-selling Epilady 4th Generation is the faster, smoother epilator that removes even the shortest hair by the root.
Suitable for face and body and leaves skin smooth for up to 4 weeks.
Epilady is a well-established model of epilator for women and this latest model is another improvement, based on customer input, offering the following features and benefits:
The Epilady Legend 4 comes complete with an adapter, Perfect Angle guide, storage pouch, cleaning brush, and instruction manual.
This epilator has received a large number of top epilator reviews with a 5-star rating on Amazon. Surely this indicates that the Epilady Legend rechargeable epilator is a winner. There are only a few negative reviews, and these tend to relate to pain management, and there’s no denying that even the best epilator will not be completely pain-free, and people differ in their tolerance for discomfort. It is also an affordable epilator and is likely to be within your budget.
In this article we will look at 5 different models of Emjoi Epilators. Emjoi is a well-reviewed brand of face and body epilators and a leader in hair removal.

The Tria 4x Hair Removal Laser offers affordable, convenient professional laser hair removal from the comfort of your home.
The manufacturer promises that you can see results from as little as two treatments and may be able to stop shaving or waxing in as little as 3 months.
I know covering laser hair removal is straying a little from the epilator focus of the site, but I just felt that this is such a good option for at home hair removal, that I had to review it.
The dermatologist recommended Tria 4X is the first and only FDA-cleared laser available for home use and is suitable for use on both face and body. This review will discuss the benefits and disadvantages of this method of laser hair removal to help you make a more informed decision. Let’s see what my Tria Hair Removal Laser 4x Review reveals about this product.
It’s important to note that hormones and genetics cause brand new hair follicles to naturally keep forming, and so this is why continued treatment is needed even when using laser hair removal. I hope this article has helped you to make your decision about what kind of hair removal system to choose.
