Way too gentle...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips HP6572 Satin Perfect Trim Shape and Style Epilator with Luxury Bag and Three Attachment Heads (Personal Care)
I've been using an epilator on my legs for about 10 years, and I'm used to getting the job done quickly. This item claims to be efficient due to its wide head and specialist tweezer material, but it takes more than twice as long than my older, low-tech epilator and leaves behind quite a bit of hair. The only head worth using is the basic one, as the others don't feel any different and remove even less hair. The best feature on this epilator is the light, which is helpful(albeit disheartening, as you can see how little it's actually removing). The shaver head is reasonable, but I can't see myself using it regularly as it can't be taken in the shower. Also, the bag is definitely not "luxury", just a basic material bag with a zipper like you'd get in a Pound Shop to store your clothes pegs in.
I'd like to come up with an intelligent word to describe this item, but having used other, better ones all I can really think of is "wimpy". More effort seems to have gone into designing a pain-free device than one that actually gets the job done. I don't think I'd recommend it to people who are used to metal tweezers which work fast, more to people who are new to epilation who are prepared to put up with taking extra time to avoid a bit of pain.
