Hi, I'm looking at purchasing a hair removal device but I'm not sure which one yet. I want one that can do the hair on my face and also legs. I'm open to all suggestions. Thank you
There are a few articles on here & also reviews. I'd go to the shaver shop and check them out they have quite a few and some have 60-90 day money back guarantees as well.
Hi Ab.Cam.84, with the various devices I've used I still ended up back at good ole waxing.
Hi GeeJ, I would do waxing but I have nerve damage and can't feel my legs. The problem with that is I can't tell if the wax is too hot or how the strip is removed.
Sorry to hear that. Hope you find a device that works. If not, I've had great success with the waxing strips you just pull apart and apply.
This is my favourite
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll check it out.
I purchased an epilator from the shaver shop about a year ago on sale and I dont think it was worth the money for me. I got the braun silk epil that can go in the shower and while i feel like its a good product, I got red bumps and ingrowns everywhere everytime I used it. My advice would be to save up and invest in laser hair removal, its honestly one of the best things I've ever done and I could not recommend it more. Often many laser places have massive sales and you can get it done for 50-70% off. If however you don't have the money, this is the one I bought- https://www.shavershop.com.au/braun/silk-epil-7-wet%2Fdry-epilator-%26-h...
but I would just be cautious if you are prone to ingrowns
I'm really hesitant to do laser as I have nerve damage and can't feel my legs, so I won't know if there's anything I should be worried about.
Nothing beats a good quality ladies razor for your legs. Cheap and effective. As for you face it would depend if it's peach fuzz or hormonal hair growth. Cold wax strips, threading or a Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler are all worth a try.
I currently use a cream hair removal product for my legs but I wished the would last longer. My facial hair has gotten thicker and darker in the past two years because of vitamin deficiencies that I suffered from. I'm trying a cream hair removal for my face.
I have the Braun 7 & 9. I prefer the 9 because it has a wider surface area for the legs. The 7 is $149 and the 9 is $199 (at the shaver shop), only other difference I've noticed is that the 9 has an attachable cleanser brush instead of a seperate one.
Both can be used underwater (this was SUPER important when I first started epilating). If you have always been a shaver then the first few times you epilate will hurt (it did for me anyway).
Thanks for your suggestions, I'll have a look at them in store. I'm not too worried about the pain as I don't feel my legs.
Hi, i have used epilators for years and never have any problems. My first epilator was from Philips. It worked really well for years (>5-7 years). I only replace it because the newer versions are cordless and worked on wet surfaces.
My second epilator is still a Philips. Then i received a Braun silk epi 9 as a gift and this is what i use now.
I also suggest visiting the shaver shop where the sales person can show you a few different products. When first starting epilating, it can feel quite painful. You get used to the feeling after a while. Some people do get prone to ingrown hair with epilating, so scrubbing and exfoliating the skin regularly helps.
If you are not sure, there is also a painless infrared hair remover called No!no! which burns your hair. I find it not as effective as epilating and it leaves small burnt out hair on the skin that requires buffing away. However this device certainly doesn't cause pain or ingrown hair.
Thanks for your suggestions. I'll definitely check these out. I'm not sure about the infrared system as I have nerve damage and can't feel my legs. The problem with that is I can't tell if it is too hot or if I'm burning skin.
I switched to epilator from waxing. I find that epilator makes my life easier, no more waxing mess. I have the basic braun silk epil 5 (bought from shavershop, can't remember the price though). It works wonder for me.
I recently brought this shampoo from beauty heaven reward room. This is my first time i use this brand.
Thank you BH for having this absolutely fabulous product available in the Rewards Room.
