An epilator is an electrical device used to remove hair by mechanically grasping multiple hairs simultaneously and pulling them out. Epilators a somewhat similar to waxing although unlike waxing in a way, because they do not remove cells fromt the top layer of your skin. Aside from the spring in early spring-type epilators, there are no parts in epilators that require regular replacement. Epilators come in corded, rechargeable and battery operated designs.
I own the Emjoi Light Caress Corded Epilator that I bought online and love it. I have to admit it is a bit painful but if you have waxed in the past I am sure you can handle the pain. I do admit is a bit more painful than waxing even though it does the same thing, but after awhile it numbs the parts you are removing hair from. Basically I see it as a bunch of tweezers that pulls your hairs out all at the same time. It is also great for underarms for girls or women that have a problem with darkness from shaving too often.
