    sorry i meant, incase you do know what i'm talking about but you just want to confirm that we're both talking aout the same product!

    and Bhaal85, do you know if it comes with a guarantee thing where if you don't like it you can return it after a certain amount of days, like some other epilators have? thanks!

    Erm....I was just pulling your leg and wasn't actually serious, sorry. lol. Though I presume if your buying from Argos they probably have a 14 day money back gaurentee, as they are a mainstream company and not some local shop trying to protect their profits.

    What the hell is an epilator?

    ok, it's like this machine which removes hair, each hair at a time, from the root, and it KILLs (by that i mean more than waxing)
    it's good for keeping your legs smooth for up to 4 weeks. uh-oh now i sound like a catalogue :eek:

    Epilating needn't always hurt. Obviously removing a full leg of hair is very painful, but if you subsequently deal with the odd hair as it comes through then it doesn't hurt at all. Epilight ('permanent ' hair removal system using pulses of light) now that's painful! Once you've experienced the horror of that, epilating can never scare you again!

    bhaal85-yes, the things we do :rolleyes:

    neha p-are you thinking of getting an epilator or the babyliss silky smooth? i've got an epilator already and it's an old model, the ones that really hurt, but i'm thinking of getting this as it sounds good, and minta, if you think epilators don't hurt that much you're lucky you'v probably got one of those new models, which is less painfull (something about numbing the skin before :confused: )

    waxing shouldn't be painful if you get it done properly!!- Go for the pink or yellow wax- more sensitive skin

    as for the gadget- it does work, but don't think it gets the returns thingy unless its not been used- would ou want to be presented with a "Returned used" one :eek: I wldn't!

    It also gets rid of the top layer of skin so one less thing to worry about in the shower- nice smooth legs for longer!!

    No to epilators! that is painful they can also double up as torture instruments I'm sure!!

    really? thank for that tip! i do have extrememly sensitive skin. have you got the babyliss? does it work on the whole leg or only parts? it says that you can use it on any length hair, but does it really? and does it hurt if the hair is long or cause any other probs? thanks again!
