This is the 4th Epilator I have purchased and it is the best so far for my legs.
I purchased another Panasonic Wet/Dry, ES2045P, which was my first that could be used in the shower. It definitely helps to do it in the shower, and you can use soap to help it glide but this is better, at least for legs. I don't use it for anything else so I can't say.
I agree with some of the reviews that it does take a bit longer than for instance the Philips, which was the first one I purchased, but it is a bit of a "tortoise vs. hair(e)" race in that this does a better/more complete job, which means being able to go more days between, which means less time in total.
I often found that with straight line epilators (vs. this, which spins the heads) I was having to try many different directions to grab the hair, which is very tedious, especially in hard to reach places like hamstrings, and the bottom of your bottom.
The spinning heads have a spring loaded ring around them which allows for pressing down to make the skin taught in areas where the skin is covering areas that have a bit more fat, like the inner thing, than for instance the quadraceps. I've never been able to get as far up into the inner thigh with another epilator. I still can't get all the way up because the skin gets looser all the way up, and it gets into pubic hair, which is just plain painful to remove.
The second attachment head is useful for making a straight line when removing some of the pubic hair above the genitals.
The only thing that keeps it from getting all 5 stars is it is not useful for the pubic hair between the genitals and leg. I believe this is because the skin is not taught enough in this part of my body.
Perhaps a single spinning head attachment would work for this, becasue the spring loaded ring would hold the skin taught.
One other note: I splash on witch hazel after the shower and a rub in a little Triple Anti-biotic cream in the pubic area/upper legs to reduce redness and minimize infection. It seems to have helped with reducing the occurance of acne that forms when the follicle is injured.
