Emjoi Emagine epilator - A Review


So I didn't know where to put this review. My hair blog or my makeup blog. I figured that this was the best place to put it because it is about hair removal not hair growth. :P
This is the product description from the company:



Emagine the possibilities!
The Emagine Tweezer-Head Epilator from Emjoi is a groundbreaking hair remover that features 72 tweezer heads. It's faster, safer and more beneficial than shaving or waxing. The revolutionary Emagine Tweezer-Head Epilator removes hair quickly and comfortably and reduces the number of passes required to achieve the chief benefit of epilation: smooth, silky, touchable skin.
Emjoi's patented Glide Technology reduces irritation. Coupled with Emjoi's innovation of one fixed-tweezer disc and two that open and close, the skin gets gently stretched, to increase comfort and efficiently remove hair. Emagine is the world's first epilator to offer Silver Ion Technology, which provides antimicrobial protection from bacterial infections. Its innovative, dual-opposed staggered heads are a new feature for an epilator; they enable the unit to cover greater surface area than ever before while grasping and removing more hair in a single pass. To reduce the chance of ingrown hairs, Emagine features exclusive Middle Lifting fingers that raise flat or short hairs for easy epilation. The results? Skin that’s soft, smooth and hair free for up to 6 weeks. Emagine Tweezer-Head Epilator – it's the ultimate hair remover!

Now I have never used a product like this. For my legs and pits I usually just shave, so this is kinda a foreign concept for me in a way. I pluck my eyebrows and have attempted to pluck my armpit hairs and bikini line when I get hair bumps. Did I mention that when I shave I get crazy hair bumps! No matter what I do they always come up and they hurt!

When I first found out about this type of product I ran for the hills because I do not like pain. I have since then become fed up with the hair bumps and started tweezing until I started to get tired of that also. As its very time consuming. I ended up coming back to trying to find the right epilator because it seemed to be the only solution besides waxing.  I don't really like waxing because I can't do it myself. What really sold me was pursebuzz's video with this product. here and here
OK enough of that! On to the review!

My initial thoughts on this product:
  • The packaging was great! It came with a lot of information on the product, as well as a pouch to store it, and a brush.
  • When I first used it I tried it on my armpit. OMG! It was painful! I had to stop at first, but I kept going and found that the pain does lessen when you keep going.
  • On my arms & legs it was easy. It didn't hurt very much at all and it removed all the hair. My legs were silky smooth.
  • The bikini area was very painful. Much worse than the armpits and the legs put together. I do not use this on the bikini area unless absolutely necessary. I just keep that area trimmed low.
  • It is fast at removing the hair.
If you can handle the pain I say go for it! Me, I have been through labor 3 times so I know that I can handle this with no problem. I do recommend this epilator to anyone mostly because I have heard that others do hurt much worse than this one. :P

This product retails around $120. I got mine for a little less than $100 with free shipping form a seller on amazon.

All in all I absolutely love this product! Its fast and easy. It does hurt like hell on sensitive areas initially but after a while the pain subsides and it does the job.

Would I repurchase: Yes I would if I felt like I had to... :P

I bought mine on amazon last year. The prices have come down a bit since then. :)
