  • Epilators??

    I recently just bought a epilator and only tryed it on my leg for 2 seconds and it hurt like ..! Is it meant to hurt like this or has anyone got any tips on using them?

  • yeah it hurts like ********** <---lots of eyewatering swearing.
    the first time you do it.

    but keep with it, it does hurt less the more you do it.

    you might find it better to get waxed to begin with
    then deal with the regrowth with the epilator.

    also do it after you've had a shower when the pores are more open and use an icepack or aloe vera gel right afterwards.

    • I am new to this site and soo glad I found it lol
      I am thinking of getting an epilator mainly for my legs and bikini line as I am getting seriously fed up with shaving there and it growing back within 2 days! ggrrr

      Does it really hurt that much to begin with?? x

      • im sorry but for me, it really does.

        it doesnt hurt now, but when i first did it it was really painful.

        • I have not tried epilators, but wax sure hurts. If you are not so much of a masochist, waxing is not for you. LOL.

          • in my experience epililating hurts more than waxing.
            mainly i think because its taking out less hair in one go so you get a sort of constant hurting rather than a quick rip.

            it does get much less painful the more you do it
            so i think waxing initially and then dealing with the regrowth with an epilator is the way to go.
