Here on the Gulf Coast we are getting little glimpses of Summer with a few warm days here and there that assure us that it will not in fact be freezing forever. (thank goodness) Summertime means bathing suit season, and while I am getting my body in top shape to rock a new suit this year with POUND, there are other things you have to make sure are in tip top shape too... like.. ummm... your bikini line. There is absolutely nothing worse than a great body, a great suit, and wicked razor burn that hurts as bad as it looks when you get in to the salty water of the Gulf of Mexico. Thankfully Emjoi has our answer - the Emjoi Epi Slim+ e18.
The new ultra-portable and ultra-affordable Emjoi Epi Slim+ e18 battery-operated epilator does everything that its larger Emjoi siblings do—removing unwanted hair from the body and face, while doing so with the absolute minimum of discomfort—but in a smaller, lighter package and at an extremely affordable price.
The Emjoi Epi Slim+ e18 features 18 of the same patented 3-disc tweezers that have long made Emjoi products the go-to choice for removing unwanted hair (as short as 0.3mm) from the root from any part of the body. With eRase glide technology, its disc opening at an optimal 14mm and operating at 540 strokes per second, these tweezers remove the majority of hair at the first pass to keep the possibility of skin irritation to an absolute minimum.
So here is what you really want to know... does it hurt?
Well... it is uncomfortable. I don't know that I would say it necessarily HURTS - but snatching hair out of a follicle by its root is never going to be a completely painless process. However, what I did find was that when I used it shortly after a hot bath or shower - when your pores are more open than normal - it was much less uncomfortable. It also hurts way less than the sting/itch of razor burn which is the alternative.
The Emjoi Epi Slim+ e18 is available now on the Emjoi website - and at a price of $34.95 it costs you literally half of what one Brazilian wax would cost! Check out all of Emjoi's products and get bathing suit ready!
