Hey everyone!

I am lucky to have sumptuous, thick and strong hair on my scalp. However, I’m quite as much unlucky to have the same type of hair on my legs Sad

My hair is dark, sturdy and grows very quickly. If I shave it in the morning, I have prickly legs with stubbles in the evening. Moreover, a razor ensures dreaded ingrown hairs.

To be honest, I don’t feel like spending big bucks on waxing or sugaring in a beauty salon every week, because my hair grows too fast even after these treatments.

I’ve tried sugaring at home, but it’s a tiresome procedure. I spend around an hour on my legs and after that I try to wash the sugar off for quite a while.

And it’s even worse with wax. I rip off my hair for hours, then wash the wax off with oil and then try to wash the oil from my body. Ugh… So, I’ve decided to use an epilator for my legs and I use it since then constantly. It takes me about 10-15 minutes to epilate them, but the results last for about a week. Yes, shaving with a razor is quicker, but an epilator is cheaper than salon treatments and quicker than this torturing at home.

I’ve been using this epilator for about 2 years and don’t regret that I bought it.

What’s in the box:

1. This is how the epilator with a pivoting head looks like.

It fits really well in my hand. It’s neither big nor small. Plus, the design is sleek.

2. The massage roller is a knock-out! It diminishes pain dramatically.

You can remove this head, but I’ve never done this except for cleaning purposes.

3. The cleaning brush: everything is clear about it Smile

4. The shaver head is great, because it helps get and maintain perfectly smooth skin after epilation.

It takes only a minute with my legs. I use it also for shaving the upper part of my legs and for dry epilation of my underarms. I don’t use it for the other parts of my body, because it hurts.

5. Trimmer cap: I use it for trimming down my hair, when it’s too long.

Usually I trim my hairs on my arms with it. Thank God, my hair is light in this area, but it gets sometimes too long.

6. A cooling glove: I used it only for the first few times to cool my skin before the process. Other than that, I don’t use it. My family takes it out of the refrigerator and uses it only for cooling themselves down in the summer Smile

7. Charging cable: It’s about 2 meters long, which is great. You can use it where it is more comfortable for you, and not only right near the socket.

The kit also includes a small white pouch, but I’ve never unpacked it.

The use

It has 2 modes that ensure different speeds. I always use the second mode, because it’s more comfortable for me.

Also, it has a LED, so that you don’t miss a hair. It is very helpful when the lighting is not enough.

My experience

I’m really pleased with the results. It helps get rid of irksome hairs pretty quickly. More than that, the massage roller makes the procedure almost painless.

You just go up and down 2-3 times with this epilator to remove hair from the area you see in the pictures below.


It’s noteworthy that my legs were all covered in hairs before I started using this epilator. Now the hair is thinner and softer.

More than that, I feel comfortable and not really prickly when it starts growing. Do I have ingrown hair? Yep, but I had way more ingrown hairs after using a razor. It all depends on your skin type.

I recommend this tool. It’s the best option for me.

But I might someday take the plunge and undergo laser hair removal Smile

Have always beautiful and smooth legs Smile
