With that out of the way, let's jump right in. A while ago, I complained about shaving my legs. Yes, it's one of those womanly things that we all have to take care of. I've had hair laser treatments on other parts of my body, and I also get monthly waxes, but when it comes to my legs, I was missing a solution. So, I whined, and my friend mentioned that she used an epilator. Huh?
Yeah. So I went on trusty Amazon.com and did my research. I read and read and read reviews until I thought my eyeballs would fall out. Okay, so maybe that's an exaggeration, but I felt like I was drowning in reviews. Then M did some research (don't hate me for saying that you did, but you did).
And after I received an eGift Card to Amazon, I decided on the Emjoi Soft Caress Cordless Hair Remover. Because my gift card was for $25, I only paid the remaining balance of $19. Deal? I think so!
It arrived on Friday night, and I actually read the instructions to let it charge for 16 hours before use. Saturday morning it should have been fully charged up, and I braced myself for the pain. (A lot of reviewers claimed it hurt.) Fortunately, it wasn't as terrifying as I thought it would be. So over the course of the weekend, I epilated. And let me tell you, it definitely took a long time. I would have to go over the same section multiple times to get it all. So it's not as fast as shaving.
I can't speak to how long the results will last for me personally, but I think in the long run, this will save me time (and money). I think I'm going to look into this one for the future since it has more tweezers. But for now, I know that the one I chose is perfect for the beginner like me. And it doesn't hurt that even M noticed how much smoother my legs are already!
P.S. You cannot go out in a dress, skirt, or shorts after epilating. My legs were covered in tiny little red dots...so I wore a maxi dress for date night.
