I have the Braun Silk epil.
Death. Slow death.
I forced myself through one pit and couldn't make it through the other one, it hurt so badly. And the bleeding freaked me out. I'd never bled when waxed. But I always rash up when waxed, and didn't with the epilator.
On my legs, I found it broke more hairs than pulled them, which defeated the purpose. I now just use the electric shaver or Nair. I wish I knew a way to keep my skin from bumping up after waxing.
