The Best Epilators For Women – Reviews And Guide

the best epilators for women

Shaving, waxing, laser treatment or epilation – all of these hair removal methods work perfectly fine if you want to have a smooth and hairless skin, but not all of them have long-lasting results or are effortless. Which one of these hair removal methods suits you best is a matter of your personal preferences as well as your budget.

If neither waxing, shaving or a laser treatment are an option for you, epilation may be. In this review, I am going to introduce you to the best epilators for women so that you can pick the one you think will work best for you.

Depending on your personal preferences and needs, you probably know by now which model suits you best.

Epilating certain areas of your body might hurt more than other parts of your body since you are pulling the hairs from the roots, but the more often you epilate, the more your discomfort will ease.

You can even epilate your bikini line or your face, but first, you will have to choose an epilator or an attachment that is designed for that specific part of your body.

  1. My wife has been looking for a new epilator for quite some time, and is expecting one on her Christmas gift list this year. After reading your reviews, I think I am going to go with the Panasonic Shaver & Epilator ES-ED90. My wife has sensitive skin and the hypoallergenic stainless steel foil and blades seem ideal for her! The built in LED light is perfect for those late night shaves when she can’t see the small hairs that may have been missed. The operation time of 30 minutes doesn’t seem like a major con, as my wife tends to take a good amount of time as it is! Thank you

    1. Good choice, I’m sure she’ll love it! The pedicure buffer attachment is a big bonus besides the fact that the device is 100% waterproof and can be used with shower foams and gels. It pretty much has everything to make the epilation sessions comfortable and enjoyable. Regards, Ruya

  2. My first choice for an epilator has always been Braun. They really do produce the best epilators for women in my opinion. Braun Silk-épil 9 9-961V Women’s Epilator will be my next purchase, as the old Braun epilator that I had was broken. Love that it may detect even the finest hair; meanwhile the fact that it includes a massage head is a big bonus 🙂

    1. Hi Leo! I also have a Braun epilator, though it’s an old model, and was always satisfied with the results. The massage head really is a big bonus and makes it a lot more comfortable to epilate even the most sensitive parts of the body. Have a nice weekend, Ruya

  3. Hi Ruya

    Wow, these takes me back to my days of epilating and the pain that goes with it! I guess another personal preference is the amount of pain levels you can tolerate too.

    They all seem like great products to use. I like the sound of Braun Silk as there’s no cons and love the fact that it has a massage mode, but maybe the price range is a little steep for my liking. Would you know how long the epilating session works on this one? Thanks for the review.


    1. Hi Teresa! From what I’ve seen, most people prefer a painless hair removal method, even if that means they have to remove unwanted hair on a regular basis. So yes, it’s definitely a personal preference. The operation time of the Braun Silk-épil 9 model takes around 40 min. Hope this helps! All the best, Ruya
