I Bought an Epilator!

I bought an epilator last week and I finally got it today :) I honestly don't know why I bought it LOL (probably because it is purple hehe) but I felt that I want this. I regularly go to salon to get my underarms, upper lips and bikini area waxed. I tried waxing by myself as well but it requires alot of effort and I find it too messy when I am doing it. I thought I would save time and money if I will just buy this.

So I ordered the Emjoi Soft Caress Gold Cordless Rechargeable Epilator from for $69.95 (+$29.21 shipping). I was excited to get this really but to my dismay, Philippine customs charged me Php1,271 tax for this. I am like WTF?! There is tax for a freaking hair remover?

Oh well, even if I have to pay more than what I am expecting for this I am excited to try this out. :) I will post another review after I have tried it 2-3 times. For now, I will share with you things you get with the epilator and its features.

Packaging: The packaging is good specially if this product is intended to be shipped. It is enclosed in a tight PVC plastic (#3) so the item is secured from damage. The only trade off is I had a hard time opening it. I had to cut it with big scissors. :D

Accessories: The package includes the epilator, adapter, protective cap, massaging finger attachment, cleaning brush, loofah, and carrying pouch. It also includes instructional manual. If you also have bought this product, it is important that you read it before using the epilator.

Product features as written in the package:
  • Luxurious hair remover with 36 patented tweezer discs removes hair from root
  • 24 karat gold plated tweezers remove hair quickly and comfortably
  • Antimicrobial protection against damaging bacteria
  • Enjoy smooth skin for up to 6 weeks
  • Patented Pain Reduction Technology greatly reduces discomfort
  • Removes hair as short as 0.5mm
  • Contoured design hugs your curves
  • Soft touch grip fits comfortably in your hand
  • Gentle enough to remove individual hair on the upper lip and chin
  • Excellent for removing hair on the legs, bikini line and underarms
  • Includes Massaging Finger Attachment
  • Cord and cordless
  • Dual speed control
  • Compact and great for travel
  • Hypoallergenic
As much as I want to try this already, I still need to charge it for 16 hours as indicated in the manual. I will try this for a month or so and will post another entry telling about my experience using this. :) If you have used this product before feel free to share what you think! ^_~


  1. Have you used an epilator before? Doesn't it hurt?


  2. It doesn't hurt. At first I find it scary to take it close to my skin while it is on but I got used to it.

  3. I might try it then! ;) I can't wait to read your review! :)



Have fun and stay beautiful everyone!
