    Im considering buying an epilator, however I really have no idea how they work lol Ive just heard they are better than shaving.
    Can I just ask how do you use one? Do you have to use it on each indivual hair? Also because I am brunette I have quite coarse hair and wonder will it still work effectively?
    Thanks

    it works by pulling out each individual hair (bit like if you pluck) you run it over the hair and it pulls them out

    its much better than shaving IMO, lasts a lt longer for a start, i normally have to shave my legs every other day but if i epilate i only need to do it once a fortnight

    I like epilating but it does hurt a bit. It also takes longer to do than shaving BUT the effects last longer and it is much smoother.

    use it like you would a shaving razor, run along the hair, and it'll pluck out each hair.
    i bought one, and used it about 3 times. it really doesn't work for me so went back to shaving - but it could just be the epilator i got.

    Get a Braun one. I got a remington one once, it was rubbish!

    Braun ones are the best. I got this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Braun-Silk-%...4388964&sr=8-1

    It's amazing.

    I tried it and was alright with the pain, but I have fine hair and it ended up not being able to push through my skin - as horrible as it sounds, really. Even with constant exfoliation, it was a disaster. I wish I could have kept using it though. It was the Braun Silk-épil one - really good brand.

    My leg hair grows so fast, I thought an epilator would be great...but it hurt so much that I chucked it away 5 minutes later!
