9 Epilators for Bikini Area

epilators for bikini area

Most of the time, the hair around the bikini area are kept under wraps, but it feels good to know you are looking as just good underneath your clothes too, right? Imagine how embarrassing it is if you put on your swimsuit, only to realize that some of your pubic hairs are showing around the crotch area of your swimsuit.

For some, pubic hair is just gross and unhygienic, and it is almost a ritual for them to trim public hair and stop nature from creating a jungle. For others, removing pubic hairs that are not exposed is for aesthetic or sexual reasons.


There are many ways to remove pubic hair such as waxing, epilating, shaving, sugaring or using hair removal creams. But in order to achieve hair-free state for up to 4 weeks, the 2 most effective and longer-lasting methods would be waxing and epilation. Both waxing and epilation do entail some degree of pain, but they prevent the hair from growing back right away and leave you with ultra-smooth results for a few weeks.

If you like the effects of waxing, but hate the messy cleanup at home or the inconvenience of traveling to the salon for professional waxing services, then buying an epilator for bikini area is a worthwhile investment for your personal grooming needs.

Here are a few buying and epilation tips for you if you are thinking of buying an epilator for bikini areas.

    1. Look for an epilator that comes with shaver/trimmer attachment

      You need the hair to be of certain length before you can epilate, otherwise the tweezers cannot grasp the hair. Trimming is therefore necessary. If you already owned a bikini trimmer that helps you to keep your bikini area to look perfect, then perhaps this tip may not be applicable to you unless you intend to replace the old standalone bikini trimmer.

      Some of the epilators that come with shaver/trimmer attachment include:


  1. Choose a good epilation head designed for sensitive areas

    Instead of buying a basic epilator that is best used for lesser sensitive skin areas such as the legs and arms, it is best that you choose an epilator that comes with a good epilation head designed with curved shape to follow body contour. It is noteworthy to mention that Braun Silk-epil Series comes with a pivoting head, which can adapt to your bikini areas for more up, close and personal epilation around your vagina.

    To avoid irritation, look out for epilators that comes with extra sensitive head that helps to make the experience more comfortable and relaxed. Besides good active messaging system that glides over your skin to sooth your skin and to minimize the discomfort before and after epilation, look out for hypo-allergenic epilation system. For example, Emjoi Soft Caress and light Caress is great for sensitive skin because the 36 tweezer discs are 24-karat gold-plated. Gold, being a non-reactive metal, is hypoallergenic according to emjoi’s official website.

    Some models even come with their own light. I must say that it is a handy feature to have because not only it helps to reveal the finest hair, it also helps to prevent shadows from the epilator obscuring your vision while you handle the awkward position.

  2. Exercise patience and extra care before epilation

    Using an epilator can be uncomfortable especially for sensitive parts like bikini area. It is easier just right after you take a hot shower or hot bath. This is because the warm water relaxes your skin, so you will enjoy a gentler epilation.

    Make sure you are completely dry before you begin. Unlike shaving, there is no need for any gel or cream. In fact, for optimal results, your skin should not have any cream or lotion applied to it.

  3. Exercise patience and extra care during epilation

    For those who need a little piece of mind that you will not hurt your tender labia while using an epilator, you may want to consider using a disposable vaginal shield called Va j-j Visor!

    Try squatting to stretch your skin around the bikini area. This prevents snagging and helps to make the process less painful. It is important to keep your skin taut. Depends on your pain tolerance level, you may experience tingling sensation to worst pain ever. Since the tweezers does not pull the skin when removing hair, there is little adverse effect of skin irritation.

  4. Exercise patience and extra care after epilation

    Depending on your skin and hair type, it is common to experience red little bumps after epilating because like waxing, epilation remove the hair by the roots. But the pain will subside over time.

    For sanitary reasons, it is important to keep your epilator clean, and keep it for personal use only.

    For non-washable epilator, make sure you rotate the tweezers and get rid of all the excess from your epilator using the thin brush that comes with most epilators. To minimize the chances of infection, you should also wipe the tweezers with rubbing alcohol using a cotton ball and allow the device to be completely dry before keeping it away from dust and debris.

    Alternatively, you can consider buying an epilator that comes with sealed body such as braun silk-epil xpressive series so that you can wash your epilator fully for maximum hygiene.

Besides budget being one of the considerations, you should choose an epilator that is designed for the body part that you want to use it on. In this case, check out the reviews and read what real users have to say about epilator for bikini areas.

  1. I recommend to take a shower and exfoliate your skin before the process of hair removal. It removes the dead skin cells from your skin and frees you of any ingrown hairs.
