  1. I wish I have been introduced to this epilator years ago. If I had this, I could have saved a lot of time removing my dark, coarse hair. When I got this epilator, I was really amazed as to how fast and thorough it can pluck my hairs out. This thing does not miss even my little hairs. For sure, you will be pleased with this product too especially when you are already used to the pain caused by usual epilators.

  2. I used to wax in order to remove my facial hair until I got this epilator. This is so much better as now, I can remove facial hair myself. The directions for using this thing is easy to follow. Plus, it does not give me a headache during cleaning.
