O The Lawnmower for thine Legs!

9:00 am

I shake my fist at whichever goon in the past who started the whole idea that body-hairless women = BEAUTY. Does anyone else out there feel like the whole issue of epilation is one big fat lie?

 All the epilators, sugaring, waxing kits promise you that hair removed from the root grows back finer or stops growing after awhile... which is a whole bunch of hogwash! If it did, women wouldn't need to wax anymore!

 So I bought this after being really annoyed that my clumsy self kept accidentally flipping my Veet wax strips the wrong way and staining my bathroom all over with sticky wax, thinking it would be faster and less messy. Was it worth it?

Pros

  • The device itself is easy to operate, comfortable to hold.
  • Less messy than waxing, no sticky residue to remove or stain things with.
  • Longer lasting result than shaving.
  • Easy to touch up quickly without having to clean up wax residue.
  • Same pain-level as waxing.

Cons

  • Expensive initial spend. Assuming I wax twice a month, it would take me about 2.5 years to break even (versus Veet 40-pack wax strips at £12, 3 packs a year).
  • Not as fast as I thought it would be. I thought it would be as easy/quick as shaving, but I find myself having to go back over areas slowly multiple times to get every single hair.
  • Noisy! On the upside it does mask any yelping of pain.
I find I am indifferent to this, I slightly regret the impulse buy as it wasn't as quick to use as I thought it would be. The fact that I need to go over areas to catch stray hairs (more than if I were to wax) is a bit annoying, especially for something that costs so much. However I don't deny that at times I do appreciate not having to fiddle with sticky messy wax.

Is this a must have? No. Like most electrical grooming products it's definitely a nice-to-have, if you have the money to spare and don't like fiddling with messy sugar/waxing methods.
