Many of you have rightly pointed out to me before passing a final solution, it is common to start by using different techniques at home.
So I decided to carry out several tests to determine with several users the best models available in the market.
And here I deliver results of best epilator review.
Of course, for this part of the body, I know not recommend opting for the final electrolysis, particularly for the chin area where hair can tend to push harder.
Electric epilator for the face: Technology
In doing my research, I discovered a true technology: simply put, electric epilators are powered by a rotary epilator that clamp and tear the hair at the root.
If they all operate on the same principle, the fact remains that they each have their specificities:
- some models numb with cold,
- others have small massage pins that make less painful hair removal (perfect for cozy women including myself part).
- others are waterproof and can be used in the shower or have a built-in light.
As for me, I was looking above all the speed, efficiency and good quality / price ratio. So I have deliberately not mentioned models that do not meet these criteria.
For those who think they are plucking feel anything, I have to prevent: the zero pain does not exist. The first sessions are often painful then prefer cold or massage option, which still attenuate pain.
An additional small board and not least the higher your electric epilator rotary clamps possess, the more it may be painful at least during the first few uses. At the same time, he will have more and more it will be effective and fast …
To you manage according to your sensitivity!
It left for the tests!
3 Epilating techniques tested on face
Still often dethroned by the beauty institute, waxing or electrolysis see manual waxing, there are some products on the market designed specifically for the face. They are few and some can be expensive.
Do not forget that facial skin is very fragile, so avoid ironing over twice on the same area. The best is one pass per week and especially to moisturize the skin after.
As for the pain, it is certainly mitigated by cold or other methods, but the face is still the face …
Test 1: Epilator BRAUN Silk Epil Face 810
The Rolls electric epilators designed for the face!
BRAUN Silk Epil Face 810 Another plus: the brush for gentle exfoliation. It can be used to remove make-up every day, much like a salon treatment, but home! It appears from his shower with a clean, soft skin, ready to be creamed!
It works with one AA battery and can be used in the shower (wet & dry epilator).
The design is nice, color silver and white too. Its size tweezers specially designed for the different areas of the face makes it very easy to handle.
Conclusion: easy and convenient to use, the 2 in 1 (hair removal and skin cleansing) is a definite plus.
The only snag is the price, within 70 euros … And we must take into account the fact that it plucks the face, it will take another epilator for the other area of the body.
Test 2: Philips HP6365 / 03 Epilator SatinTouch
Undeniably one of the cheapest, this electric epilator can be used on all sensitive areas of the face (chin, upper lip, eyebrows …) but also for small areas such as the bikini or armpits.
Philips HP6365 / 03 Epilator sensitive areas
At the level of pain, it is a “bit down” by the rapid rotation of the blades.
Its small head allows the use on small areas of the body, particularly on the difficult places.
Conclusion: Undeniably the cheapest, its low price makes it particularly attractive. Small, practical, perfect for the holidays! 😉
By cons, first flat, it may take several passes over the same area and some hairs can break … 2nd flat, it is sold depilatory several areas of the body but given its size I would not recommend it for waxing legs.
And do not forget to provide batteries!
Test 3: The Philips HP6540 / 00 multi-purpose
We had already spotted and had been well noted in the article where we were looking for the best epilators underarm.
Epilator armpits and sensitive areas Philips HP6540 / 00 Similarly, he had also stood out although when we were looking for the best epilators difficult areas like hair removal bikini.
It was therefore not very surprising to see the Philips HP6540 / 00 highlight once again positively to the result of our tests on facial hair removal 😉
Reminder of the main features:
- Epilator head off large areas of tweezers (like legs)
- Wireless mini epilator
- Clamp with integrated light and mirror
Quite painful … but it was never pleasant either tweezers to believe.
Several passages necessary for the legs
Conclusion: Always a small cost and high capacity, for soft skin everywhere 😉!
Test 4: Epicare
I did as electric epilators and yet … Inspired by hair removal thread, Epicare seems to delight more than one!
Epicare facial hair removal
It must be said that for a cheap price, it plucks the down on your upper lip and cheeks very easily.
Epicare is also used for the chin, forehead and neck!
However, do not pluck your eyebrows, you may no longer be at all! As always, we are told that it is painless, which is not quite true.
Tip: Before waxing, pass an ice cube on the affected area and then to dry thoroughly before using the Epicare.
So, you find your happiness?
