Basic epilators reviews


If you’re looking for a basic, entry level epilator, the Emjoi Soft Caress is the one for you. The 24 karat gold plated tweezers remove your body hair effectively, although not as quickly as some other models. And let’s face it, having gold plated tweezers on this unit just looks cool! This epilator is great for people who are just starting to epilate their body hair, because the pain levels aren’t too great because the epilator only has 36 tweezers working at once. That’s not to say that it won’t hurt-you are still tweezing your body hair, you’re just doing it much faster with this tool.

The Emjoi Soft Caress Epilator is cordless, so it can be used just about anywhere, and it operates with the cord attached, so it’s easy to plug it in if you’ve forgotten to charge it-as I did, multiple times. It works on hair as short as .5mm, and it’s actually recommended that you epilate stubble rather than longer hairs. The epilator is perfect for your legs, underarms, and bikini line.

This epilator fit nicely into my hand. The small size and travel pouch made it easy for me to pack this and take it with me on vacation, so I was able take care of a small bit of bikini line clean up before I hit the beach.

While this epilator is great for a beginner, someone more experienced with epilating, or someone with a low pain threshold, may want a higher powered model with more tweezers. Models with more tweezers may cause higher pain levels, as the hair is being pulled from a larger area at once. I was disappointed about the slow speed because it is a lower powered unit.

Because some people may be concerned about ingrown hairs with an epilator, Emjoi recommends that you exfoliate when you use an epilator, and even includes an exfoliating pad. I strongly feel that if you use an exfoliator the way you’re supposed to, then ingrown hairs shouldn’t be a problem for you.


I highly recommend this epilator to anyone who is a beginner to hair removal. Since the number of tweezers in the head is smaller, the pain you experience from epilating is going to be reduced, making it more likely that you will stick with using an epilator for hair removal.

Epilady Legend 4 Epilator Review

I received the Epilady Legend 4 as a gift from my mom, who has used one for years, and calls every epilator an “Epilady,” regardless of brand name. I’ll admit, I was hesitant to try this one, because I remember hearing my mom talk about how her Epilady ripped her hair out. However, that was way back in the 80s, and I figured that the company would have gone out of business by now if they were really as bad as she made them sound back in the day.

I am so glad that I tried the Epilady. It’s much quieter than I expected, and the level of pain was quite a bit less than with other epilators that I’ve used. It’s definitely a great product for a beginner, or a more experienced epilator user. Since I’ve used epilators before, I knew what to expect, but I was able to sit through an entire session, doing both my legs and my bikini area, without too much discomfort. It was definitely better than I expected. I feel that just about anyone who has tweezed or waxed to remove unwanted body hair could benefit from using the Epilady Legend 4.

I would highly recommend this unit to both the beginner and someone who is more experienced. If you travel much, then this one is a great investment, because it has a dual voltage adapter, so it will work in Europe. I personally feel that this epilator is a great investment for anyone!



I decided to try the Braun Silk-épil 7 7-521 Women’s Epilator because I’m an experienced epilator and thought that I would be able to use this unit without a problem. When I first held it, it fit nicely in my hand. I really enjoy how it looks.

My favorite feature on the epilator is the smartlight. It’s so much easier for me to see and target the smaller hairs, and it’s great for taking care of those random hairs that you seem to sprout as you get holder. I wish the light had a separate power switch, because then the battery would last longer.

The Braun Silk-épil 7 7-521 Women’s Epilator comes with five separate heads, which may seem a bit confusing, but I had no problem deciding which one I should use where.

The downside to this model is that you can’t use it with the cord plugged in. Therefore, once the charge runs out, you’ll need to wait for it to charge again before you can finish epilating. I’m hoping that once the battery life runs out, I’ll just be able to buy a separate battery rather than replacing the entire unit.

I feel that this is a good model for someone who is used to epilating. The pain was a bit more intense than it was with units designed for beginners, but if you know what you’re doing, you’ll know how to minimize that. I highly recommend this unit because the light makes it well worth the money, especially if you are starting to have problems seeing smaller things.
