I recently purchased the Braun Ever-Soft. Fancy little gadget!
I must say it works pretty damn good. The first time I put it to the test - I didn’t know what to think. The pain was so intense / different, that I really didn’t know if I should continue or not. I pressed on and after a while I became used to the feeling. The belly (treasure trail) was extremely sensitive!
I had gotten a wax job once before - and this wasn’t like it. It’s the same feeling, but with the epilator it is very slow. And you are controlling it yourself. The first operation took me a long time to get the job done:
A) Because you almost need to take a break and focus on something other than pain for a while.
B) With a lot of hair it is a slow process.
Make sure you trim your hair down - so it doesn’t clog up the rotor. I also found it’s not as painful when the hair is trim. It is much more efficent when the hairs are straight and just the right length instead of curly and long.
The second time using the epilator which was tonight - it was not painful at all or there was very little pain. There were only a few stray hairs. Sometimes you feel a little pull, most of the time I felt nothing.
Between uses I applied a hair inhibitor by Parissa (Azulene Oil).
I’ve found that a bath after epilating feels really good…actually now that I think about it, the first time - my skin was too sensitive. It was red for at least a day or more. They suggest doing it at night - which I would recommend…especially if it’s your first time, because during the day you will constantly look at all the red bumps on your body wondering when the are going to go away. It’s a little nerve racking. But they do go away.
I did everything but the legs - so you’re on your own there.
I picked up my epilator at Canadian Tire.

PS. Enjoy the first time guys…girls I don’t know if it’s the same experience.
