Comments about Emjoi optiMax Dual Opposed Tweezer System, Model AP-98R, 1 ea:

I have owned several Emjoi Optimas and thought they were great - but Emjoi doesn't make that model anymore. Perhaps the fact that they burned out after about 12-18 months had something to do with that. I tried the high-end Emjoi offering, the Silhouette, and it was awful - just broke off hairs. The OptiMax is good. It's nowhere near as fast as the Optima, but it appears to be designed better - the head compartment is protected. On the Optima hair could easily get into the motor, which I assume burned out the motors. The Optimax is definitely slower and takes more time than the Optima but it does a good job and the longer handle is easier to use.

Comments about Emjoi optiMax Dual Opposed Tweezer System, Model AP-98R, 1 ea:

I'll be honest, the first time I used it on my sensitive areas it hurt really bad. I honestly took about 2 nights to do the whole thing, but the second time I used it, it was far less painful. I'm really glad I kept using it because I am really pleased with the results, and now it doesn't hurt at all when I use it!

Why didn't I have this when I was in High School?? I love this. I am hairy! i have two or three hairs in each pore. The only thing is that I usually don't have a lot of time & I pass the machine too fast like I am shaving so I have to go over the area again. BUT I LOVE THIS!!!

Comments about Emjoi optiMax Dual Opposed Tweezer System, Model AP-98R, 1 ea:

The reason I bought this was to deal with my post-menopausal facial fuzz that's been driving me crazy for years. Emjoi optiMax is intended to remove single hairs on the upper lip and chin and is not to be used on the entire face like an electric shaver. With those warnings in mind, I proceeded with caution, holding the skin taut and did get my upper lip and cheek area fuzz free. It does pinch, but the payoff is a smooth, clean face with no stubble. I have had this for only two days, but so far I love it!

Comments about Emjoi optiMax Dual Opposed Tweezer System, Model AP-98R, 1 ea:

This thing is a piece of garbage!!! Be careful... if you look at it the wrong way, it will fall apart! The life-span on this thing is about 3 months, and not only did the tweezers come apart, the sprockets stripped themselves and now it won't work at all!!!

Comments about Emjoi optiMax Dual Opposed Tweezer System, Model AP-98R, 1 ea:

This Emjoi epilator's tweezing head has too much of a curve, so it is unable to grab hardly any hair. It also has barely any power in the motor. It was a horrible, poorly-made unit, which I returned.

By Anonymous

Comments about Emjoi optiMax Dual Opposed Tweezer System, Model AP-98R, 1 ea:

I used the Emjoi Gently Gold for years to remove facial hair. When it finally gave out, I considered the other Emjoi options and ordered the Opti-Max. What a disappointment! I go over and over the hair area, and nothing happens. Tips I received from an Emjoi customer service rep didn't help. I am going back to the Gently Gold model and am hoping they haven't changed it.
