Love this thing,
This review is from: Philips HP6403/00 Satinelle Corded Epilator with Shaving Head (Personal Care)
I talked my wife into "doing" my back for me today with this thing. My back wasn't particularly hairy but I wanted to prove to myself (and to her)that I could stand a bit of discomfort and that the fuss that some women make when having their legs done is over exaggerated.
Had the back done and I most say it was in all quite pleasant - a bit like having a large tattoo done whilst having your back ironed with a hot plough.
I laid on my back after thinking that went well when she looked loving at me and said, "Want your belly done?".
Stomach was a bit hairy and as I'd already "done" my legs with a dry razor I thought why not.
Now I'm someone who doesn't mind having the odd bit of root canal work done and have read a book whilst having most of my tattoos done. I've carried on at water parks abroad after breaking toes there because I'd paid a few quid to get in and wanted my monies worth. Sticking my cut off finger tip with super glue to get me to the hospital - child's play.
But when she stood this thing on my stomach and turned the f***** on I'm sure my neighbours thought I was being chain-sawed in half.
Absolute agony and she only managed a 4 inch track before the sobbing kicked in.
Wonderful bit of kit but keep it off your stomach.
Highly recommended to anyone using it to get answers out of unwilling suspects or moving on squatters or protesters. Used as an anti-mugging device I could see this out selling pepper spray.
