Over Waxing & Shaving? Try An Epilator

Over Waxing & Shaving? Try An Epilator

When it comes to hair removal methods, we tend to believe that the humble epilator is highly underrated.

Unlike shaving, waxing and laser hair removal, how much do you really know about epilators?

Let us educate you…

Epilators utilise multiple tweezing mechanisms to pluck large sections of individual hairs (some as short as 0.5mm), and because of this they can extend the time in between hair removal sessions by up to four weeks.

Why? Because it takes hair longer to grow when the root of the hair follicle is removed. Plus, pulling the hair out from the root helps to gradually thin hair growth over time too.

Modern epilators also come with multiple attachment heads, which means you can use them on multiple areas of your body (yes, even your bikini area and face).
