4.0 out of 5 stars No more shaving! July 20 2004
By pamelars24 - Published on Amazon.com
I love this product! I was so sick of shaving that I decided to give this a try. I have a low pain tolorance and I have to say that it did hurt ALOT the first 2 times. (I admit I had a glass or two of wine before doing it the second time lol) but after that the hair is much finer and since it grows back at different speeds its not as concetraited in one area...which is why it hurts. I use this all the time now. My legs are soooo smooth. I usually do this once a week while watching tv. It actually lasts for 3/4 weeks or so however since hair grows back at different speeds and depending upon how much of the hair was taken out by the root or if it just broke off I like to use it weekly. It doesnt hurt at all now...although I read someone used this on their underarms. I tried it and will NEVER do that again...that was painful!!! the bikini line is less painful than that. This product works great and I'll never go back to shaving!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Ergonomics April 8 2004
By DCH - Published on Amazon.com
I've used a few other "epilators" and I liked this one least for several reasons. I found the tweezing plates revolving in 2 directions, as opposed to one, rather uncomfortable. Also, the plastic pieces at ends (bordering the tweezers) were sharp and often scratched my skin. The biggest reason that I don't care for this product is it's size and shape. It's small and thick and difficult to hold comfortably, often grazing my fingers during use. While this wasn't painful it was certainly annoying. Of the products commonly found on the market, I prefer the emjoi "Gold Caress." It's easier to hold and use, and it's less expensive. (The Gold Caress, however, doesn't include a shaving head.)With this model you also have the choice of AC or rechargeable. Hope this helps.

4.0 out of 5 stars Painless? Slight Prickling? Who are you kidding?!?! Nov. 28 2005
By Katherine Chan - Published on Amazon.com
I've always considered myself someone with a high tolerance for pain...but after getting this thing, I may have to rethink that. First off--the thing works. You want to get rid of a huge amount of hair from the root, this little baby will work wonders! You want it to be painless...FAT CHANCE. When I first used it, I did not em-joy the amount of pain issued by this little bugger.

The first time you use thing thing, the only thing coming out of your mouth will probably be AAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHHHHHHH! (and if you're creative like me, a whole lotta expletives as well!) You *will* have red, and possibly bumpy skin afterwards...and if you're really lucky, you may even have a few little pinpoints of blood where more stubborn hairs used to reside. But rest assured, all of those pesky side effect will go away--and yes, the pain does get less each time you use it afterwards. If you have a low tolerance for pain, can't pluck your brows without crying, or can't even pull a hair on your head, it probably would be best to stick to a razor or nair. I've had my Emjoi for over 2 years now, and I have graduated into bikini area and underarms Emjoi-ing...a good tip is to use the Emjoi, then take a good warm shower. I've found that Tea Tree Soap and a good lotion after the shower helps the pain subside greatly as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Thing I've Ever Bought!! Aug. 2 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
First let me say I have very dark, very coarse leg hair and even after shaving you can still see the hair on my legs and a couple hours after, it is already prickly again. So this product does work with coarse hair...I'm not sure about fine hair. Anyways, I hated it so much, and started waxing. I then began to hate that...letting your hair get that long stinks, and $50 a visit began to drive me crazy! After doing some research I decided to invest in this product and have never been happier. I received it a little over a week ago and my first experience with it was painful. Let me tell you, the first time you use it, it kills! This may be because I have such coarse hair though. After thinking about it, I also think it is the same pain level as waxing, however, it seems worse at the time because you are doing it to yourself and can stop and agonize over how much it hurts instead of someone just ripping away. Anyways...a week later...as with waxing you do have a very tiny bit of growth...not even noticable but I have always just glided a razor over it but it's not necessary. I just decided to use the epilator again real quick to get a little more growth that has started and it didn't even hurt. You just need to learn to pull your skin really really taught. The only negative is I found it very hard to get my knees, but I feel like I'll catch on soon enough. Also - if you've ever noticed, with waxing they usually start half way between your knees and ankle... do the same when epilating because it is much more sensitive around your ankles! So if you do experience a lot of pain during the first time...don't give up! Take it out again a week later and you'll be pleasantly surprised. Just don't let the growth get too thick again or else you'll go through the same amount of pain as you did the first time. By epilating every week that shouldn't happen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good epilator, bad ergonomics April 25 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Compared to other epilators, this one is great at removing hair. It has two heads, so it seems to be twice as fast. The little roller bar that is meant to dull the sensation does dull the prickly feeling, but for me epilators are not painful anyway. Also, it got most of the little hairs that the other Emjois often miss. The heads pop out very easily, so this is the easiest to clean of any epilators I have used.
Now the down side. Terrible ergonimics! It is very short, about half as long as other epilators, and very wide and squat, since it has two heads. The cord is placed right on the side of the squatty little thing, so it is always in the way. There are no thumb grips or any other things that might help. I found that the cord got in the way, especially for the underarms and bikini areas. I dropped the thing three times in one session, and kept getting my fingers in the way of the tweezer heads. If it were not superior in hair removing abilities, I would return it due to poor ergonomics. If you have any kind of grip problems, or large hands, I can't imagine you would be able to use this. Go with the Braun silk epil, it works about as well, and you can get a grip on it, or the Emjoi Gently Gold Caress, which is rechargeable. Don't give up on epilators because of this poorly designed little thing.
Emjoi, fix this design and you will have a great product.
