    Epilation, omfg help me!

    Can't do it! It's so sore!!!

    I've had fairy tattoos and given birth but I'm left with one leg 85% done and the other one not at all! The one is red raw! It's not silky more like scraggly but I can see the hairs have come clean out which is the only good thing.

    I do have very black coarse hair, will it get better or am I just hurting myself fir not much benefit?

    Please help!

    I love mine! Is it a wet and dry one? You could try using it in the bath, apparently that reduces pain?! I never bother though, I must be hard as nails! Hehe! xx

    Hi opal, yes it is wet and dry so I must try it in the bath after a good soak and exfoliation.

    You are rock!!

    I think it hurts less the more often you do it, if that's any help. I agree a bath would probably make it a little less painful Or you could walk around with one hairy leg and say it's some kind of fashion statement lol

    I found the pain bareable but gave up as never had nice smooth legs like if promises, they looked ok but always felt prickly and strangely made my legs itch.

    Ok so I epilated on what mon was was it and I've only shaved my legs quickly once since and that was because I wanted to wear shorts and I knew if missed a few. My legs are still hairfree so indeed to keep doing it!

    I shave every day if I want my legs out!

    The hairs need to be short for the best results, otherwise epilating your legs is like waxing in slow-mo!!

    You do become used to it the more you do it.

    I'm definitely going to try again, if I could epilate once and not shave for a week then that's great, I just need to overcome the god awful pain!!!!!

    I'm just hoping by posting this that some lovely hairy lady might come forward and say yes! It's hurts! I'm hairy, or was and it's worth keeping going!!!

    Doing it damages the hair follicle as well in the same way that waxing does so the more you do it the finer the re growth will become and the easier it gets. I do the top of my husbands back (tmi?) and after 4 years we only have to do it about every 4 months now and he had tough coarse hair there. I do my under arms with it and the finer hair above my knees but I don't do the bottom of my legs because like waxing you need to wait for some re growth and I just can't have them beyond minimal fuzz!

    I found it almost unbearably painful at first, but now it's my only method of hair removal and it hardly hurts at all. I do my armpits with it too and would never go back to shaving. If you keep it up you'll be amazed at how easy it becomes!

    I went for my lady garden wax yesterday and we tell each other everything....I showed her my legs and she knows more than anyone how hairy I am and she was amazed! I have to keep this up girls, I got home from work, put a pair of shorts on after not shaving or anything in days and ok yes, I could see some i'd missed but seriously i'm thrilled with the first go so I must stick with it!

    Not sure about under arms though, I had them waxed once and omg I swore 'd never put myself through that again!

    You've inspired me to go buy a new epilator now, forgot how nice it was not having to shave everyday! Got to be honest though, used to do my underarms with it and they would bleed every time, so not sure I would do them either.
