My Epilady arrived yesterday, much earlier than I expected (thanks, Amazon!).
I epilated my left ankle. It was not pleasant, but not altogether UNpleasant. I slathered it with coconut oil cream afterward, and it was itchy and goosebumpy till this morning. Now, it's smooth and nice. ::pets ankle:: Yup, still nice.
I think I'm gonna take a soak and try it on my whole leg(s) soon, but I figured I should do a spot test first.
So far, here are the positives:
--- cheaper than shaving over the course of one year (shaving about $120)
--- not rash-inspiring like Nair
--- keeps hair gone for weeks (supposedly... we'll see)
And the negatives seem to be:
--- takes a while to do
--- sounds like a swarm of disgruntled hornets
--- feels a bit like a swarm of disgruntled hornets, also
The key seems to be to take a soak before using it and to be sure to exfoliate regularly.
Oh, my order for the purple leggings was cancelled due to lack of inventory. So, I re-ordered in red. We'll see if they come this time or if I need to post slanderous things about the website I'm ordering them from...
