The bleeding under your arms doesn't sound good, should that happen ?

The more you use the epilator the better it will get, I promise!

The first defuzz is the worst now if you try and get rid of it as soon as it comes you will find it much easier. I have been epilating for 4 years and I don't feel it anymore. I know its TMI but I even get rid of all pubic hair using the epilator!

I have never tried epilating and after reading this, not sure I want to!
I think I would rather tackle my stubble with a razor! Lol

I had an epliator but i couldnt handle the pain!! I gave it to my OHs mum and she said that it gets less and less painful each time (or you just get use to it!?)

My advice would only be to put a frozen pack on it first to numb the area

It does get better, honest! For your pits, make sure you have your arm stretched way down your back (like a tricep stretch) to keep the skin as taught as poss. Regrowth is so much softer than shaving, it lasts longer in between, and some of the hairs seem to have given up altogether!

Also - try not to use ice packs as the cold causes your hair folicles to contact making the hair harder to pull out. If you can try to epilate straight after a hot bath as your folicles will be relaxed allowing the hairs to be puller out much easier.

TMI = too much information.

I love epilating. I do it once a month and shave twice in between to stop ingrown hairs. Really taught skin when doing the underarm, I agree, although I dont do it there. Just my legs.

I also have a epilator that has 3 circular blades so it pulls in 3 directions and so you make circle motions my using it and you dont have to just go up and down. i think this works better in the pain department and you can use it in the shower it's waterproof! ALthough I dont.... hehe.
