    I bought one & used it lots for several months, but eventually i went back to the razor! My legs were never smooth, which really irritated me. I love stroking my elgs after shavings them ,altho the smoothness lasts all of two secs!

    I like waxing, but can't do it myself. They only prob is that u hv to let the hair grow inbetween, but it definitely gets weaker overtime. Eventually i think i'm going to have my under arms, bikini line & legs lasered so that i neva hv to both with them again. That would be pure heaven to me! lol!

    Currently having bikini line IPLed (lasered): £250 for 6 sessions. Possibly a couple of maintainence sessions in the year after that. But the beauticians told me this: that they would only be lasered for small areas (underarm, bikini, lip). Done shaving- ok if you can be bothered to do it frequently; Done epilation- hurts like h**l, but looks good; Done waxing- for over 10 years and I can confirm that the hair grows in smooth and so even if you have to wait 5 or 6 weeks a guy won't necessarily notice or care!

    its funy you should say that... I got mine what two three days ago now and I shaved my legs normally the day before, normally I have stubble the next day (sometimes that evening, stupid genes) so I am quite suprised how my legs are still smooth, I'm having to wait to use it, maybe they are trying to scream at me? lol
    Quick pass them the loudspeakers!
    No but seriously - I think the hairs are in shock from the epilation treatment and so the fact that you've shaved hasnt hit home to them yet. But next time if you shave, they'll grow out the same speed as before.
    I find that happens anyway... Though I've stopped shaving now.

    Has anyone epilated armpits with any sucess? I mean, can you numb it or something to help the hairs come out more easily? My problem is not the pain of them coming out, but they don't come out first time... So the hair is being pulled up again and again... ouch!
