Epilators: Friend or Foe? ;)5:43 PM
As women, we all deal with a little something called hair. From styling the hair on our heads, to tweezing our eyebrows, to shaving, waxing, threading, springing, ripping, and sanding, we are in a constant struggle to define how the hair on our bodies look.
Now I'm going to be honest. I probably have less body hair than the average person. I don't need to shave my legs since the hair there is basically very fine and nonexistent. I likewise don't have a ton of underarm hair (I know, gross, TMI right?) but since my skin is so sensitive if I tried to shave the few hairs I did have I would get razor burn and ingrown hairs. Anyone who has done this to their armpits knows what I am talking about! Very unpleasant in an already sensitive area! Maybe I just don't have those mad shaving skills that girls who shave their legs everyday honed, but I was reduced to tweezing the hairs with tweezers which gave me headaches from trying to stare at my own armpit. Yeah, just picture that. O_O
So this comes to the topic of discussion: Epilators. I had first heard about epilators from the ever-savvy Soompi Forums crowd. An epilator is an electronic device much like an electric razor except that instead of cutting your hair, it has little tweezers that pull your hair out. It sounds really scary, right? But I figured, I'm already tweezing my 'pit hairs so might as well let a machine do it for me.
The two epilator brands that kept popping up in terms of quality and popularity were Emjoi and Braun.
Oh, and I didn't want to forget to mention that Urban Decay is also having another sale on Hautelook starting tomorrow, Tuesday April 20th at 8AM PT (10AM for me here in Central Time). I really don't even need to say how much I love this brand, right? Pretty sure there's something Urban Decay in all of my videos. XD
So anyway, whether you decide to jump on these Emjois or invest in the Braun Silk-Epil or any other number of epilators, I do hope you can try one sometime and be happy and hair-free. They aren't as scary as they seem! Let me know in the comments, have you tried an epilator and if so, which one? Have you tried tweezing unconventional areas? I want to hear some hair-horror stories. ;D
