Braun Silk-épil 3-3270
This one needs no introduction. Braun Silk-épil 3 series epilators are extremely popular among ladies for the gentle hair removal they ensure and great functionality they boast of. This women's epilator is exactly like that. It offers the light way to remove the tiniest hairs for long-lasting smoothness. The thing is that it pulls each hair from the root without breaking it. And unlike waxing, your hairs don't need to be extra-long. The epilator tackles even a couple days' growth owing to the SoftLift Tips®. The unique tips lift even the shortest and tiniest hairs and direct them to the tweezers for gentle removal from the root. The unit has as many as 20 tweezers allowing for very accurate removal of unwanted hair in all body areas.
Although it's less painful (and cheaper) than waxing/sugaring, take note that if you're shaving for the first time, it might hurt. The thicker your hairs are, the more painful it will be to remove them.
The Braun Silk-épil 3-3270 is a corded epilator, which we consider as an advantage. See for yourself, you don't need to recharge it and naturally, it won't stop dead in the middle of a shave. Plus, corded epilators are considered more powerful and hence, more efficient. This one is no exception. It offers 2 speed settings so that you can choose what's best for your individual needs. The high speed is fairly powerful and excellent for legs, while the lower one is better for more sensitive areas.
In terms of ergonomics, the product has some nifty things to offer. For one, it has a built-in SmartLight that can let you see the area you're working on. It reveals even the finest hairs and helps you not miss sections for extra-thorough hair removal.
For two, it comes with 2 extra attachments - a trimmer cap and a massage cap. The latter gently stimulates and massages your skin to prevent discomfort. It really disguises the pain, so you don't feel the pinch as much. It's great for use on armpits, legs and bikini line.
All in all, if you need a decent appliance from a reputable brand, the Braun Silk-épil 3-3270 is a good choice. It's not the best in terms of convenience since it can't be used on-the-go, but we think it's a good option to have in your bathroom. It's functional, gentle, and can be used for epilating different body parts with the maximum comfort.
Panasonic epilator has confidently won the hearts of million ladies, and it's not surprising why.

What is an Epilator?
An epilator is a popular electronic device for grasping unwanted hairs from body and face with an effect, frequently comparable to waxing, but less hurtful and more lasting. The rotating discs in the head of a device gyrate and pull out the hairs similarly to tweezers right at the roots. In this way, for the next time when the hairs break through to the skin, they become considerably thinner and rarer. And compared to waxing, the smoothness of the skin stays much longer. Some models act less painful on the skin than the other due to a number of accessories they come equipped with. This is where you may want to take a closer look at those features, provided by different manufacturers.
Conventional epilators might cause some pain despite all the anaesthetic features they have. However, you can use laser hair removal systems that remove all unwanted hairs with a power of laser. These appliances cause no pain at all.
And don't forget that you must always keep your feet neat and callus removers will help you with that. It's absolutely safe in use and let you have smooth and soft skin on your heels.
What Features to Compare
So you’ve decided to buy an epilator but not sure which one is gonna work exactly for you? We’re gonna help you make a choice through practical tips and recommendations. Before we go any further, let’s clarify right away what Types of epilators exist and how they differ from one another. Basically, there are only two types in the market, disk and pincer, the names of which explain their head construction. Disk epilators feature a pivoting head with stainless-steel (sometimes ceramic) discs that rotate and remove the hair from the root. Epilators with tweezers do the same job but in a slightly different way. The principle of their work is often associated with the work of a pincer - it's just as accurate, precise and efficient. Which one to choose? Honestly speaking, there’s not a great deal of advantages of one epilator over another, and more often than not, it’s a matter of preference. However, what we do recommend you to pay attention to is a power source. The corded epilators are commonly recognized as more powerful, fast and hence, more efficient, but in terms of convenience they easily yield to cordless units. When compared to epilators that must be plugged into the power outlet, battery-operated hair removal systems can be used literally anywhere and do both, Wet and Dry epilation.
Check how many Speed Settings are there provided. Basic epilators usually have only 1 speed which works great for short hair and doesn’t irritate skin too much. The flipside of a coin is that such epilators require more passes to epilate a large area of the skin and take considerably longer overall. Most epilators though offer two speed settings. You can find models even with three settings, but their price may bite. In our article we’re gonna review epilators with 2 speed modes for the reason they are more demanded and purchased worldwide. Ok, so how do speed settings differ? It’s easy to get an impression that one speed is more than enough. Not really. The first low speed is definitely good. It doesn’t hurt that bad and it’s perfect for sensitive skin and delicate areas. But what if you need to epilate legs? Would you really fancy spending a few hours in a row to do epilation? We guess, no. This is where you may want to switch to a higher speed and do the job quicker. The number of tweezers also matters. The more tweezers there are in the head, the quicker they will pull out the hair. But with fewer tweezers the process is gonna be less painful. Here you need to decide how high or low your pain threshold and move from there. These are the main factors that you need to consider when looking into Operation of each particular epilator. A good combination of both will let you do epilation quickly and painlessly.
If you’ve never used an epilator before, you should be ready to go through a hell of emotions, no doubts. There’s very little of pleasure in pulling the hair right at the root. But the good news is, most advanced epilators offer a variety of Anesthesia features to make this process less stressful. Among the most popular are gels with a cooling effect, massaging caps and lifting fingers technology. Now you’ve got a choice - either to clench your teeth and endure the pain or alleviate the suffering. Depending on the price, different hair removal systems offer different Extra Functions. If you plan to use an epilator for various body areas, consider what additional caps are there included in the box. What’s good for legs won’t work for face, and vice versa. Some epilators also include a Smartlight that detects each hair that have accidently been missed in a pass. The choice is vast, as you can see, and the options will only become more numerous (it’s understandable, considering the market growth). But now at least you know what to look for and your choice should not be that hard-to-make.
