Time marched on and advances in technology were made and I broke my vow and have been using a Braun epilator for many years now. I thought it was doing a pretty good job so when I was given the opportunity to test out the new Philips SatinPerfect model I figured I was a good person to give an opinion on it.
I tried the Luxury for Legs model and they also carry a model that can be used all over your body including your face and bikini area.
Now I know for every newbie the concern is the pain factor - and I figured my legs were pretty immune to how much it may or may not hurt considering how long I have been using one. On my legs it's the faintest of stings but of course the longer you use one of these, the less the pain gets as you kill off the hair root. So I tried it on my arms which is not a place I normally remove hair from so they are not immune! There was a light sting but nothing I would call painful - and I'm a total wimp so someone who has gone through childbirth probably wouldn't feel anything at all!
So overall, I would totally recommend the Philips Epilator - it was quick, it was easy, it was fairly painless and of course the best part with using a epilator, the results last for a couple of weeks, not a couple of days like shaving and the like. I'm even thinking I will upgrade myself to the all over model!
The Philips Luxury for Legs Epilator is available at Zellers, The Bay, Jean Coutu and Personal Edge among others for $89.99 - you can get more details at www.philips.ca.
