Brands of Epilators

Recommended Posts

Guest LizMarie

I'm sure different people have their own recomendations for epilators but what do you like and why? If you can list a brand, model, and your personal opinions about it, that would be great as the rest of the information can be researched from the internet. Also, if there were any brands or models you really disliked or returned, list those too. It's good to be aware of possible "lemons" out there.

Thanks in advance! I am thinking of buying one but wanted to see what people recommended.

I have the Remington smooth and silky.

It has two different heads and does seem to work fairly good for me.

I got it at Target.

I do wish it was a little more powerful and if I were buying again I would be sure to get one with a light so I could see better how it was doing.

Bed bath and beyond carries the Braun, silk epi model steems to change yearly. I prefer the dry models they dont have the battery in them. the rechergable one limit your use time and are less powerfull imho.

Do epliators hurt, sorry I was going to ask this but the subject of epliators hurt. I recently bought a Philips silk epil epilator but after reading online reviews, am put off using it for months.

I really want to have nice sexy legs for longer, I like it and its makes me feel nice and fem for my boyfriend. I usually shave in the shower twice a week but its a inconvience and I often cut myself and this hurts.

So is it sore? Is it painful? I dream for smooth legs for longer just cant muster the courage

I have a epilady but I'm about to buy a new one, I think my initial heavy leg and arm hair was a little too much for it to handle

Painful? Oh yes, they're painful... :hairpull: Of course it depends on one's level of pain tolerance, but I've found the back of the thigh just insanely painful. Have to go in small sections there.

I've got a rechargable Braun silk epi I think it's called. It works, but needs multiple passes and still misses some hairs, not sure why. Still better than shaving, for me anyways.

I've been using the Braun Silk Epil for many years. In fact I bought my second one a few years ago because the heads are interchangeable and I now have one set up as an electric shaver for times I'm in a hurry and the other is set up with the epilator. Both are corded, so I never have to worry about charging them up and the cords are long enough not to get in the way. Regarding pain, when you start out, the more little pinchers the better, so spend the extra money for the model with the highest number. But over time, the hairs come out so much easier and the pain drastically reduces. I found underarms to be the most painful location, but I do that now with no difficulty at all. I've used them all over my body back when I needed to, but now it's mostly for legs, arms, and underarms and those are more sparse all the time. Do not use it on your face! I'm sure your electrologist will warn you against plucking facial hairs anyway--at least until you get to the point of only have one or two strays here and there from time to time.

The first time you use it on an area, it can be very painful, but by the 3rd or 4th time, you kind of wonder if it is still working because the pain is almost unnoticeable. So tough it out for the first time, and you will be glad you did. Generally the pain is only there while you are using it, so as soon as you stop the pain stops.

I also use a Braun Silk Epil, it seems to work pretty well, and the light is a great thing to have. I do wish you could just plug it in and use it instead of charging the battery though.

      If you have insurance, they might have options, and or your doctor, to get a referral for some type of Nutritionist that could help you. Possibly a councilor  could recommend group meetings, perhaps even a trans group that you could join. I know it helps to have a support system in line. Substitute fast food with veggies and fruit. Drink water with all of your meals, good or fast food, drink water. That helps me filling up and it's just plain healthy. Try and eat salad with your meals too, they can be rather tasty. Dont go cold turkey, ease into it, find a comfortable balance. Walk when you can, and ease into that too. Start bringing small weights with your walls after a while. Maybe find people that are willing to walk with you.  During my research of HRT and what would help me see changes, boobie growth, losing weight was one of them. That inspired me, cause I noticed the changes after i lost weight and maintained keeping weight off. The weight distribution has really been shoing this past week.  Other than eating healthy foods, going to a therapist might help you with what is driving you to eat when you are not hungry.  I wish you the best!

      I do not miss anything (yet), and I dont believe i will. I am doing what I have always wanted to do, so everything that comes with it will be gravy. I get looks, and I enjoy them. I havent been flirted with yet, at least not as far as I know. That might come later when I present more.

      Thank you. 💛💛

      I have yet to find anything I really miss other than the looks from cute girls. Girls are definitely not checking me out anymore. Well maybe except a lesbian but I haven’t noticed that either.  And what’s worse is that that’s been replaced with guys checking me out and flirting. It’s really really weird still for me. Like really weird. lol.

      Great topic, Dawn.  I miss both of the things listed above.  I really miss being able to carry heavy things like I once could.  My upper body strength has dwindled.  When moving things like couches, sheets of plywood, etc...I never realized how much of the lifting required me to use my chest to help balance these bulky items.  I can't have ANYTHING touch me anywhere near my chest.  It nearly sends me into orbit when I inadvertently hit my nipples.

      It’s hard, but you need to start cutting out the bad foods. Foods high in fat and sugars make you crave more food. It’s why you can sit down and eat an avocado and feel more full and more sustained than when you eat 3x as much of something like Doritos or McDs fries. Your body is being fooled.  Eat as much healthy foods as you can. Nearly 50% of your food every day should be veggies. For someone your size I’d say you should be in the 6-8cups of veggies a day.  My advice, cut out bad and replace with good. Go as fast or slow as you can handle, but create goals no matter how small they may be and stick to them. Eventually you’ll get where you want to. But it’s gonna mean work. And I also recommend a support group. It really helps. A lot. If you stay active with it at least.    Good luck.

      I really don’t think this is the whole story. There’s just too much that doesn’t add up. He’s not talking or giving a motive for the shooting. Usually killers give a motive once they are caught. She worked retail and didn’t live the lifestyle even though she had a place on a seedy street. She leaned in the passenger side window which implies a passenger. The pace of the interaction was implied as being quick, so that tells me she was killed for being a witness. People don’t usually drive up to a random woman and have a short conversation with her and inexplicably shoot her with a shotgun. Unless it’s a hit.    There’s also a sub culture in the region they don’t mention. It’s common place for people who don’t have cars to flag others down and seek rides, called hacking, basically Uber before there was Uber and definitely cheaper. That’s something the suspect would be interested in if they just had a car accident, a rental van, and needed money. It’s entirely plausible. So was the passenger actually the killer? Was it one of those bait and switch situations where the passenger just killed her and the driver was surprised it happened? He definitely wouldn’t argue with an armed man. Did they threaten the driver and/or promise them protection if they didn’t talk? Was part of the deal to take the shotgun and take the fall if the police came after the driver? I think this was a hit, to take out a witness. Which means that the first killing was probably by the same person and the rabbit hole goes way deeper into the criminal underworld.

      The right wingers will go crazy over this (I think they already have), but I think its appropriate and a nice touch.   Carolyn Marie

      @Carolyn Marie thank you for sharing this true story.  So much of it describes the way I felt during puberty and at other times during my life.  it was just over a year ago that I finally figured it out and started therapy and sought help.  That's a long time to be depressed and not know why.   Willow

      So last weekend I went camping(tents, drinking, bonfire, no restrooms) I was in boy mode as I am not out yet. When natured called as is the case with mass quantities of cheap beer is involved, I found a tree, pulled it out, shook it off after, put it away and went back to fun. It got me thinking if or when I transition to a girl, it will require a little more privacy and toilet paper.(I have camped with girls) I have what I have between my legs, but male parts are so much more convenient in that regard.    It got my thinking what little thing will you miss or do you miss after transitioning? (Let's keep this on the light side, we are all aware of how society can treat us, just little things)   Dawn

      In an effort to make Berkeley more inclusive for its non-binary residents, the city council voted Tuesday night to make the language more gender neutral, following a city clerk review that found that the municipal code primarily contained masculine pronouns.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2019/07/18/berkeley-plans-remove-gendered-pronouns-its-municipal-code/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.8248f991c2e8
