I have tried a bunch of epilators over the years...I can't shave anymore as I get itchy skin beyond belief and it's NOT due to the razors, or foam, or lack of exfoliation or allergies...it's simply because my hair now grows so darn fast and my skin is rather sensitive. Anyway, so I have rather thick, fast-growing, dark hairs on my legs. I would say that among any epilators on the market, this one is the best. Willl it miss hairs? Sure...a few here and there. Will some hairs break? A few. You won't have a perfect result. BUT! You can be pretty darn close...very close indeed. I have had my legs waxed numerous times by professionals too, and even they miss a few hairs here and there... And don't get me started on the cost. This once every 2-3 weeks vs. waxing? I'm saving about 90 bucks a month!!! Worth every penny. Does it hurt? Yeah...and A LOT the first time if you've never waxed or used an epi before. HOWEVER - pain DECREASES with continued use...anyone can tell you that. Now I feel no pain. The hairs that grow in are sparser, thinner, and lighter. All pluses. Beats shaving hands down. And I'm lazy...so trust me, this is great if you don't want the hassle of shaving every day. Also no stubble! Can't beat that eh? :-)

This is the first epilator-type unit I have used, and I have only owned it for a short time. Overall I don't find it as painful as I expected from some of the earlier reviews. It works easily on legs and arms and any area with firm skin that is easy to see. I am still working on my technique for the bikini area. I'm having trouble with keeping the skin tight and flat enough to avoid pinching in this delicate zone. I actually like that it has a power chord, and the light is helpful.

    Comments about Emjoi Light Caress Hair Remover, Corded, 1 ea:

    First let me say I have very sensitive skin. Since menopause I have fine hair that has appeared on my lip, sideburns and chin. Have tried cream bleach that just burned my skin and waxes that left strip marks on my skin. This is pretty painless, shaves close, but the jury is still out on how long the hair stays off. Says it takes it out from the root and lasts 4 weeks, haven't seen it last that long.

        The first time was the worst, but it's really not that painful. It works okay. I was hoping to do away with shaving altogether because lately shaving makes me itchy throughout the rest of the day, but I still have to shave if I want super smooth skin. This helps your legs look smooth longer, but not feel smooth because it doesn't get every hair every time. It takes longer than shaving - like 3 times as long, at least - and I still have to do it once a week or so (it definitely does not last the 4-6 weeks that it claims). I have relatively fine hair, so it's hard to see where you've missed until you've already cleaned up and put the thing away. It works well on armpits, but not around bikini because of the concave curve of the tweezers. Overall, it does most of what it says it does, just not to the degree I had hoped.

          I just got this today in the mail from this website. I've been dying to try epilating for a while now so I was so excited to get this. I took it out the box and heard the noise and didn't think it was as loud as I expected it be but when I saw how fast they were spinning, I was scared to death! I eventually got over the fear and it actually didn't hurt as bad as I thought it would. You do have to go over the same patch of hair over and over sometimes, but the results are amazing! I did my legs, underarms and arms and they all feel great! I'm so glad I bought this and I don't think I'm gonna be going back to waxing or shaving. It's especially easy to get the back of your legs and it leaves it super smooth. I definitely reccomend!

            I use this for my legs as 1) getting tired of running to the aethetician (thighs) and 2) experiencing lots of irritation from shaving (calves). It is great for thighs - extremely happy to have made the switch. Works less well for coarser hair on calves but still using it. It does hurt horribly the first time (on my calves, not bad on thighs) but there isn't any hair removal like this that doesn't - shave or use nair if you don't want ANY pain.

            First of all, if you have never waxed or used an epilator, I'm not sure why you would go out and buy an epilator. I was waxing for several years before I decided to try epilating. Yes, it's painful at first, but why wouldn't it be if your hairs are being pulled out from the roots? So I was very happy with this the first year I had it. After the second year, it started to die out every 30 minutes or miss hairs. I also lost the little cleaning brush so that made it very hard to clean without. A little after two years of owning this, it just died one day. I know people who have had Braun epilators for several years and are still very happy with theirs, so that will be my next epilator.

                I have been using epilators since 1996 because I get razor burn no matter how carefully I shave. I use them on legs, bikini and underarms. I have always bought Braun epilators. This is my first Emjoi.

                THIS IS THE BEST EPILATOR I HAVE EVER OWNED.

                1. It didn't hurt at all.

                First, let's get this out of the way: epilating hurts the first few times you do it, and for the first few strokes of any session. The Emjoi, though, has the least pain of any epilator I have ever used. I barely felt a thing, except for on the sensitive outer thigh area, and even that wasn't bad.

                2. It removes hair - not breaks it.

                I have very fine hair on some areas, and all my old epilators would just break it off in those areas. I learned to skip the front and outside of my outer thighs for this reason. This Emjoi, though, actually removed the hair instead of breaking it. It must be because of the gold-plated tweezer discs.

                3. It doesn't pinch your skin.

                All my old Brauns had flat heads. The head of the Emjoi is a curve so it hugs your body. This also means that you can use it in areas that the Braun would just tear your skin. Because I had years of experience, I was able to do my underarms and parts of my bikini line with my old Brauns by stretching my skin and going slowly, but even so, I would always end up with a few places where it would literally tear my skin and make it bleed. Not so with this Emjoi. I was able to just run it right over my armpits in any direction with no problem. I was also able to get it in the very inner thigh/bikini area - I could NEVER do that with my Brauns. Once I realized this, I got more confident and just ran it all over my skin with no problem.

                4. The motor is much stronger. I could feel it vibrating a bit, but that is reassuring, because I had 5 or 6 Braun motors die on me. This sounds like it will last a long time.

                5. It didn't leave any red marks. With my old Brauns, I learned to epilate at night because my skin would be bright red for 12 hours or more. This Emjoi didn't leave my skin red at all. Not a tiny spot. This is amazing because I have the world's most sensitive skin. Seriously. Not even a tiny bit red. I could have gone right out in a skirt and no tights.

                If you are on the fence, buy this Emjoi right now. It costs less than one full leg wax and works the best of all the epilators I have ever had.

                    I really hoped to find something to get rid of my unwanted hair fast and painfully, but this device hurts so much, that I could only do one leg. If you can stand pain go ahead.

                    The revolving wheel freezes and I can hear the gears underneath rotating as they try to engage the wheel. So for the majority of the time it isn't grabbing hair. It has been doing this since purchase date. This is the first one of three of these models that I have purchased that has this defect.

                    I've had mine for three years and I don't know how I lived without it. It's easy, clean, and fast. Of course it's not perfect, but you can go over your skin multiple times and work in circles to avoid missing too many hairs. It's a little rough on the bikini line, but the more you do it, the easier it gets.
