Epi Smooth Review

Epi Smooth begins its television pitch by comparing itself the once-heavily-advertised NoNo Pro – without mentioning the latter by name, but noting its $250 price tag. With Epi Smooth, we are told that hair removal can now be affordable with a minimal $10 investment.

If you’ve never used an epilator, you may want to research the topic a bit, because this is not shaving, nor is it laser removal. Is is more akin to waxing, as the hairs are actually pulled from the skin, down to the root. While this may sound barbaric, it’s a relatively common practice and achieves pretty good results.

Most epilators cost about $45 to $150, and feature a row of spinning tweezers, while Epi Smooth only features a single row. This, I found, made hair removal with the device significantly slower than some of its more expensive counterparts.

There is only one speed with Epi Smooth, and it can only be used with dry skin. Most epilators have at least two speeds, and many can be used in the shower.

The fact that hair is removed from the root means that it will take longer to grow back to a visible state, similar to results you’d expect from waxing.

There is usually some pain involved with epilators, although everyone has a different pain threshold. The skin in any particular area could be red after an application, which is why many users of these types of devices prefer to do treatments at night before bed. I didn’t find that it caused much pain, probably because it didn’t actually remove a great deal of hair.

Overall, Epi Smooth is probably best described as a beginner epilator that will probably take you much longer to use than those offering a larger head. The price of Epi Smooth is on the very lowest end of the scale for devices like this, which may compensate for some of its drawbacks.

Alternatives

A search of epilators will yield a dizzying number of choices. There aren’t many in the same price range as Epi Smooth, although you may find a few, such as the Emjoi Tweeze eRase e6 is a $10 epilator with mostly positive reviews.

A popular, yet somewhat more expensive, option is the Braun Silk-epil3, which runs about $34 and has a solid 4 star rating.

If you want to go all out, the Braun Silk-épil 9 is an impressive device, and among the very best in its class.

    Cheap good for nothing product. Please don’t waste your money. The fact that they’re willing to give you a $5 credit to keep the product when you call to return it; let’s me know that it’s a piece of garbage. I really didn’t appreciate their shady business practices.
