I am going to talk about something I have never mentioned on my blog before......hair removal! I am a simple shave and hair removal cream girl that recently thought about waxing but was put off by the fact I had to have at least two weeks re-growth before it could be done.
With this in mind my thoughts turned to an equally painful method epilation!
I have been researching it and it would seem you do not have to let your hair grow for quite so long before you epilate which is a major plus in my books.
Oh and apparently the more you do this the finer and less dense the hair grows back :)
This is the epilator I have my eye on:
Its the Braun 5180 silk-epil epilator (£34.50 from amazon)
This is the product description:
'Braun’s Silk-épil 5 Xelle 5180 gives efficient results in minutes, leaving skin hair-free and smooth for up to four weeks. It combines the power of 40 tweezers for effective epilation in just a few strokes. With epilation, you get smooth skin that lasts for weeks. That’s because removing hair from the root means hair takes longer to grow back than removal with surface methods, such as shaving and creams. Plus, when it does grow back it’s softer and finer than before. Features include SoftLift Tips which effectively lift even flat lying hairs at the root and guide them to the tweezers. Meanwhile, a smartlight reveals even the finest hairs for no miss removals.
Silk-épil is dermatologically recommended, promising for gentle hair removal thanks to tailored features which make standard epilation even more comfortable. Other benefits include a dual massage system which activates the skin before and after epilation while the Ice Glove effectively cools the skin before and soothes it after epilation.'
Sounds.....good? :P I have quite a high pain threshold so im not too scared to take the plunge.
So my (rather personal) question is how do you remove your unwanted hair?
And have you tried epilation?
