This is the first epilator I have used. I decided to try it out based from the reviews.

I don't like to shave my legs and generally just use an at-home waxing kit, but that gets messy and takes a long time. This nifty little epilator does a great job removing hair and I did notice my hair wasn't growing as fast. Takes me significantly less time to do both legs (10 mins at most). It has a very handy LED light which I didn't think was necessary at first, but I'm glad to have it as you can see if there are spots you need go over again. The cord is sufficiently long and the epil comes with 3 different heads (although I've only used one). There are 2 speeds which at first seem quite fast, but it works out. I have a high pain tolerance level, so I didn't find using this epil painful at all. It does come with a cooling pad that you can use if you need it. The only issue (albeit small) I have is cleaning the head. I found that the hair gets stuck in the little crevices and is a little hard to brush out and wash off, but it's not enough of a problem to knock down a star.

I have no other epilator to compare this too, but would still highly recommend the product.

This was purchased for my girlfriend who was getting fed up with shaving and got to try an old Silk-Epil from a friend for a few week. After only a few uses, she noticed how the hair was getting finer and not growing as fast on her thighs already, so she decided this product was a must to add to her feminine grooming arsenal!

This is a neat little package with various attachment serving dedicated purposes. Depending on your needs, you might not use all attachments, but at least the options are available.

A few weeks later, she is now doing thighs and lower legs at a decent speed (about 10 minutes per leg) and is very satisfied with the product.

The only downside, but this is her fault really: ingrown hairs have become a problem, but she won't exfoliate although she was always prone to in grown hairs. I am sure that if she took the time to exfoliate regularly, this problem would get better rapidly.

This was my first epilator
It's not really painful on my legs (armpits are a whole different thing) but it's not as efficient as waxing for sure. I thought I could go a week with smooth legs using this but it's not the case.
There is definitely less hair now than when I shave, but I still have to use it every 2-3 days and even then my legs are not completely smooth.
Still, I guess it's better than using a tweezer, which I used to do all the time instead of waxing (and still do as this thing doesnt get all the hair)

Pros:
I can go longer without shaving my legs, as not all the hair grows back right away and I dont mind a few thin hair here and there
It takes less time than waxing or using a tweezer
Less trouble than waxing
Hair grows back thinner than when shaved
Isn't really painful on the legs.

Cons:
It takes more time than shaving.
It's not as efficient as waxing.
Sometime I have one relatively long hair sticking out and I have to go over it several times for it to be removed (so I guess it does the same thing with all the other hair) and it still doesnt get all the hair.
There is hair all over my bathroom floor when I'm done.
Can't do my armpits (or bikini region) with this thing as it hurts like hell and I start bleeding on the Epilator
I don't know if it's just mine, but there seems to be a problem with the cable; when held at a certain angle, the epilator stops.

It's an okay product. If you're aiming for perfectly smooth legs to the touch, keep shaving. If you just want your legs to LOOK smoother for longer,, then this is ok. If you're looking for an alternative to a tweezer, this is for you. If you can't afford to use wax every other week but dont want to shave, go for it.

I love this thing. I used it on my arms (forearms, not underarms) and it's totally tolerable especially after you get going. I didn't need the ice pack at all, and I had minimal redness that was all gone after a few hours. This is so much better than shaving and waxing, especially for my sensitive skin. It does take some time but not as much as waxing (I spent about 5 mins on each arm) and it's so much cleaner and simpler! I see regrowth after a week on my arms but it's not actually noticeable and needing to epilated again until after 2 weeks.

Remember to keep the skin taught- for example, when going around the elbows, keep your arm bent, not straight. I had my arm out straight once and I pinched my elbow skin- it scared me, but there was actually no damage to the skin.

I also used this epilator on my cheeks and upper lip (the lip is definitely a more sensitive area to do) with great results but it can be a little awkward to use in some spots because it's large, so I decided to try the Braun face epilator. Well I ended up returning it because it was so weak and inefficient compared to this one. I realized I wanted a face attachment for this silk epil 5 and I was kicking myself for not getting the silk epil 7 or 9 because those models come with the special cap for the face. I did find a face cap on eBay and I bought that, now I am happy. it's useable on the face without the cap but with it it's much easier to do the upper lip and I can also get between my eyebrows with the cap. So if you intend to use it for those areas then I recommend getting a model with the face cap. Cheeks and chin are fine without the face cap. I do my face once a week and that keeps it smooth and perfect for makeup! Beware: before you use it on your face you MUST EXFOLIATE.
