Factors that should influence your decision when choosing an epilator.
If you are in the market for an epilator, there are a few factors that need to be considered before you make that decision. A good way of navigating this decision may be to go through a few reviews of the product. But there is one thing that needs to be mentioned here. While word of mouth reviews are more reliable, the vast majority of epilators excel at their designated functions and have very favorable reviews online. This may confuse the person buying it even more. This is why this article may be a good place to know about the factors that should influence your decision.
The decision really comes down to the individual buying the product. Each woman will have different needs and different desired functions of their chosen epilator. The one that is however recommended is to buy a decent quality product.
The following are the most important variables to take into consideration:
Dry or Wet?
It is important to mention here that it is a proven fact that epilators work best on dry skin. With rapidly changing technology however this may not be the most important in your decision making process. With technology catching up fast the differences between wet and dry epilating is becoming smaller and smaller. Some of the different types of epilators of recent times perform exceedingly well even when used under water or in the shower.
Corded or Battery Operated
Modern epilators come in three varieties of powering methods. They can be corded, battery operated or rechargeable. It really depends on the individual and their personal preferences as to which one they want. We personally suggest the rechargeable ones especially if cost is not an issue. Especially if the person getting it plans of epilating often, this variety of epilator would make the most sense.
Number of Tweezers
This is another important factor to account for when making the purchasing decision. The tweezers are what removes hair from the root. If you are new to epilating you will soon find that this takes a bit of time, especially if you have one with fewer tweezers. If you get one with a bit more tweezers you will find that the time it takes to properly epilate will be drastically reduced BUT it may also be more painful to epilate with an epilator that has more tweezers.
The Pain Factor
Epilating can be quite the painful experience especially if you are new to the process. It should really not come as a surprise as the process involves removing hair from the very roots. Some features that are desirable to reduce the pain are the features of different types of epilators. Most of the newer ones offer a few design tweaks to lessen the pain factor.
Most of the newer types of epilators employ the use of some attachment caps to make the epilating experience a lot less painful and more enjoyable. Some examples of these attachments include special attachment heads or caps for the more delicate areas of the body. This type of attachments will come in specially handy when epilating underarms or bikini areas of the body. Other types of attachments include shaver heads which lets the user use this product as a dry shaver. Other attachments include heads and caps for when you want to use the product on your face.
Which Part of The Body Are You Looking to Epilate
Although mainly used by women to epilate their legs, epilators can be useful in getting rid of unwanted body hair from other parts of the body. If you want to have a multi-functional epilator, it will be a good idea to get one which can fit multiple types of feature caps. When epilating areas of the body that are hard to reach, we recommend using a smaller epilator.
Some of the other factors that you should consider are sounds, the settings of speed, light and obviously price. A large number of products available in the market does make a very loud noise when epilating. Discrepancy in sound does exist among different variations of the product. Many epilators come with different speed settings. This feature will come in handy as not all parts of the body demand the same speed setting. Light may also come in handy and make sure that you don’t miss any spots. With all these variables in the product available, it is not surprising that epilators come in various price points. Expensive ones do not automatically mean better performance. So, having considered the factors listed above, get one that fits your particular needs.
