I looked through many reviews before I bought this epilator and I think it is great.
1)This epilator was relatively pain free on my legs. However, I have used an epilator for five years and compared to my old one, which was a very old Remington model, it is much better, but I cannot comment on it as a first time user.(Note: First time epilation hurts, but it is just like plucking your eyebrows, the pain subsides over time and you get used to it - just don't get out of the habitof epilating!)
2)The interchangable heads do make a difference and I found them easier to use. The trimmer was also useful.
3)The cable is a really good length, such that you are not glued to your nearest plug socket.
4)My legs have been silky smooth for a week since I have used them, in spite of a bit of hair growth. (I'm not lucky enough to have four hair-free weeks, but, since I am blonde, it is not noticable.)
5)After use, the redness from the epilator is much reduced compared to my old epilator and goes away faster than when using my old epilator.
1)This epilator is quite noisy and sounds like it will be painful. (But don't fear, it is fine!)
2)With the other attachment heads, the epilator is less effective at removing short hairs.
Despite the noise, I am very pleased with this epilator because it does what it was tasked to do.
