  1. I had used an epilator before and it was definitely a torture. When I got this epilator, I was so happy that it is different. It sure does sting but it is a good sting. It indeed is ideal for beginners because it is packed with a cooling glove and designed with a whole beginner system.

  2. I am extremely pleased with this epilator. It hurts less to use on the legs but hurts so much when used on the armpits. But, every pain is worth it. The advanced head allows me to accomplish epilation in less the time. I definitely will recommend this product to everyone who wants to end their battles with annoying body hair.
