Silk-épil Xelle - All about epilation
If you are epilating for the first time or if you haven't epilated for a longer period of time, it is a good idea to shave or pre-cut the longer hairs first (with the shaver head and OptiTrim attachement). The ideal length of hair for epilating is between 2 and 5 mm.
|The Essential Facts |
Need to know how fast hair grows? How many hairs the average woman has? The latest answers are all here, in this bite-size, fact-packed guide.
A woman's leg and underarms combined contain approximately 78,000 hair follicles, and the number of follicles you have a determined by genetics - no new follicles are formed after you're born.
When hair is removed via apilation new hair growth will have tapered tip making it feel and look finer than older, longer hair.
On average, women have approximately 16,800 hairs on their legs and 600 hairs under their arms.
Hair itself is not alive. Once the cells that make up a hair are produced, they die and harden, forming the hair shaft. The shaft is then pushed up through the follicle opening, towards the surface of the skin. Then average rate of movement is 6mm per month.

I didn't expect the epilator to remove all my leg fuzz but it did (less than half an hour for both legs!). I did my bikini line with no problem at all (less painful than wax) and once I had plucked up the courage I did my underarms, which I had always just stuck to shaving. The underarms are definitely the most painful but I didn't use the cooling glove as I was impatient.
I do have a bit of a rash a couple of days on but it is going down quickly and is something I used to get with waxing which is why I am giving this wonderful machine 5 stars! My cooling pouch is also sitting happily in the freezer waiting for the next time as I have a feeling it may help reduce redness afterwards for sensitive ones like me!
The first time I used it, it hurt quite a bit, but I decided to stick with it. I used to cooling pad and the lower speed head and somehow managed to finish my legs. But what a difference next week! It hardly hurt at all, the hairs were not nearly as thick and the little massage wheel thing really did a good job. I couldn't believe it - the thing was pulling my hairs out and I could barely feel it! It's been absolutely great since. It's quick and easy to use, doesn't hurt at all and my legs are much less hairy. The built in light helps so it doesn't matter if your bathroom isn't well lit. It's true that it doesn't leave your legs perfectly smooth, especially not for the first few weeks, but that actually gets better in time.
Bought this when it was half price and the first time I used it, the results lasted for just over 2 weeks! I then wore trousers for a couple of days, so it was 3 weeks before I used it again. As a busy student nurse with little time for myself, this will be a godsend over the summer months.
Tried it a little on my bikini line, but as yet, can only do a few seconds each side. Will persevere though.
Wow! It's so much more effective than that one was especially with the 'expert' head. The expert head stings more initially but it feels more like I've had a close shave than any other epilator I've used. It just got so close to the skin and really picked up the teeny hairs although as a result, it stung more than I've been used to.
The headlight is not just the gimmick that I thought it might be. It makes a real difference if you're using this under artificial light. Much better than suddenly spotting a random lurking hair while out and about.
I won't lie and say that epilating is entirely pain free, but I can certainly attest that it hurts less than waxing and although my skin was a little pink after use, it did not nick me or give my skin the unpleasant rash that I've come to associate with shaving. This god-send come with several attachments so that you can remove hair more efficiently from bikini line and armpits, and even your face, if you're feeling brave. The other thing I've found immensely useful is the smart-light that illuminates your skin as you epilate and has meant that I've been able to pick up stray hairs that otherwise I would have missed.
Aside from the inevitable discomfort (and the fact that it's also rather loud) I couldn't recommend this more. It's the smartest buy I've made in a while, and I think it's now safe for me to chuck my old razor out.
I have to say it worked a treat (on the areas I could reach) but in the end I opted for wax strips since the pain is over and done with in less time and generally I need someone else to cater to the majority of my hair removal needs
4 stars for quality and effectiveness
1 star off for searing pain and mental scars I will not forget
