Not worth the money, 24 May 2011
Considering the price of this product I had high hopes. After a good bit of research I decided I was better off spending a bit more to buy an epilator that could be used wet or dry so I went for the 7681.
I have to agree with everything that J. Casey has written in her review even though I'm not as qualified having only used it for about a month so far. I am plagued with ingrown hairs and don't know how to get rid of them aside from picking them out - epilating takes so long as I have to keep stopping to do this every time I come across one which is approx 50% of the hairs on my legs now. I have exfoliated to the point of pain and epilating after is not fun.
As for being able to remove hairs as short as a grain of sand - not a chance! I have gone over and over and over hairs that I have been able to pluck out with tweezers and the epilator just doesn't pick them up.
The noise is off putting too.
I would have to epilate a day before I am planning to wear a skirt or dress and definitely can't see myself ever getting even more than a week from it.
I think I'll be going back to shaving unfortunately. I don't have heavy hair growth, average I would imagine, but I can't see this working unless you have very light growth.
