A while back I purchased the Epilady Legend 4 from Hautelook when it was on sale. I’d never tried an epilator before, and I’d heard they were torturous devices. However, the modern ones were supposed to be great. So as soon as I got this and charged this I gave it a try.
The Website Claims:
Use corded or cordless
New, quiet, wide epilating head, with perfect angle guide to keep you at the perfect angle for the best epilation
Removes even the shortest and finest hair, leaving skin smooth for up to 4 weeks
Dual voltage adaptor (110-240v) for easy use anywhere in the world
Two operating speeds
$69.95 on Amazon.com, $53.95 on Hautelook (including shipping)
Does it live up to its claims?
Yes & No. To me, this is not quiet. The noise is disconcerting. It’s not exactly loud, but it definitely makes noise. The faster speed is noisier. It does have two operating speeds, but I’ve only used it on the low speed. It does remove even my short and fine hairs. So I feel it fails as a quiet device, but otherwise lives up to the rest of its claims.
Would I purchase again?
Probably. When I first tried this, I hated it. I felt like it was torturous. I waited a few weeks and then tried it again. The second time around, it wasn’t so bad. I’m able to use it easily to remove hair from my underarms, which I normally wax. However, my skin is too sensitive for me to use it anywhere else. I can’t make it through an entire leg because it just irritates my skin too much. I do like that I can use it under my arms, and will continue to do that. I may quit getting waxed there since I can use this fairly easily under my arms. It doesn’t pinch the skin or grab it at all, which is a relief. It really does just stick to the hair.
How about you? Have you tried out an epilator? Do you like them? What’s your favorite way to get rid of unwanted hair?
Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
