Going Old-School: Meet the Epilator


Perhaps you remember the term “epilator” from when you were a kid, your mom or grandma had one in their bathroom. I haven’t heard of anyone choosing one of these babies as their hair removal system of choice recently!

When Emjoi reached out to me about trying their eRase epilator which has 60 tweezers that pull out any hairs they come into contact with I immediately said #SIGNMEUP. I’ve talked before about how much I despise shaving so I thought this was the perfect chance to give a different hair removal method a try!

I stopped shaving and fortunately the device was quick to be delivered! It came in a cute little set for all your epilating needs:

I plugged it in and put those 60 tweezers to my week old leg growth, immediately teared up and yelped and promptly set it back on the sink. #NOPE

I knew  if I was going to give you babes a full review, I would have to get through at least one defuzzing session! So I got a glass of wine (or two), set my teeth and did a small section at a time. By the time I was done with that first miserable calf I was #HOOKED.

Epilator Tips

1: Take an Advil or drink some wine before your first time using!

2: Each session hurts less and less!

3: It’s not a one and done, but with continued use you’ll cut down immensely on the amount of time you have to shave or epilate.

I’m still using it a month later, and now the 60 tweezer thought doesn’t bother me at all! I will definitely continue to use it. In fact, despite the initial #NOPE I definitely would recommend trying one of these out.

Have you ever tried one of these? I’d love to know what your go to hair removal method is! Cause we’re girls and talk about weird stuff like this…..

*I received this product for review, but all opinions are 100% my own.

If I don't like it you'll always be the first to know!

    I have been using one for years….everywhere. It really only hurts for the first minute then after that it isn’t bad at all. It takes about 3 different times for the bikini region because of the pain, but once it’s done, each time is easier because the hair really doesn’t come back as much. I will have to try their new one because mine is about 8yrs old.

      I want to be brave enough to do my bikini line, I just haven’t taken the leap yet! I might have to after your comment though- and knowing that it gets less painful each time. Hugs, Kait

    I’ve never heard of this product before! It definitely sounds a little nerve-racking to try, but it sounds like the results are worth it. Have you tried using it on any other spots or have you just stuck to legs so far?

      Just my legs! The pain factor scares me with other areas. One day I’ll get brave (or drunk) enough! Hugs, Kait

    Holy crap this sounds so painful!! Lol but I would try it! 🙂

    Yelp…Nope! I could just picture it. I definitely need to get one, and if I know it would get better then I think I could stand the pain for a little while.

      Hahaha yeah, it was quite the moment! I promise though that it gets better. Hugs, Kait

    YELP….Nope. I could picture it. I think I need to try one, but it makes me nervous. lol

    I’ve never tried one so I think I’d give it a try. Anything to lengthen the time between shaves is worth it! Which for me is everyday {insert see no evil monkey emoji} I’m obsessed with having smooth legs always, so I think I need to get one.

      It’s the same for me!!! But with this I can go over 3 days- and then just touch up with the epilator. It’s fantastic! Hugs, Kait

    Lol! I LOVED reading this. I actually have one that I bought a few years back and used it once and it HURT! So I’m glad that you said it gets better. You’ve inspired me to try it again! Wish me luck! HAHa

      Best of luck!!! The pain is ridiculous but it really does get better! Hugs, Kait

    Oh man, I’ve never heard of one of these! But I’m definitely down for something that cuts down the frequency and time of shaving. I’m the kind of girl that still has to shave in winter- can’t stand feeling fuzz on my legs. This sounds like a product worth trying!

      Right? Anything to make the process quicker! Have a great week babe. Hugs, Kait
