I want to buy a epilator, cos Im sick of shaving and waxing, and Ive heard you get smooth legs for up to 4 weeks.
As anyone got one? Is it painful? Is it effective?
Should I get the braun or phillips one?

I dont mind the pain, beauty is painful. Im sure it cant be worse than waxing.

My mate bought one and she only used it once because it was so painful. Have you tried that cream by Johnsons which is meant to thin out the hairs on your legs so you dont have to shave so often. I dont see a problem with shaving. It takes 5 mins twice a week

Well you did ask if it was painful....and i'm sure it is worse than waxing because waxing is very quick.

Your body gets used to waxing. The more you do it the finer the hair grows so it hurts less to wax. Its much less hassle than having to remember to shave your legs in the shower in the mornings when you're half asleep - you can just forget about it.

Ok thanx for all ur comments, I think I wont get it. Besides they cost alot too. I rather spend that money on a pair of jeans I wanted.
Yeah I have that Johnsons cream, it smells lovely, but Ive only been wearing it a week, so It hasnt really thinned the hairs yet.

I use this babyliss product:
http://www.babyliss.co.uk/jkcm/Default.asp?pg=211. It is painless and, as well as removing the hair, it also exfoliates the skin.
