I have an epilator and I think it makes hair removal a lot easier. I have the Silk Epil Braun too. It hurt like HELL when I did my armpits for the first time but it's definitely worth it. My armpits aren't as dark from the hair beneath the surface and its usually a week or more before I have to epilate again. When I used to shave I had to shave them every other day. I've used it on my legs too. I like that I can go for weeks without hair removal but on the down side it takes forever to get rid of all the hair. So if I have to go somewhere quick I just shave. For the bikini area I'd rather wax. Epilating is extreeeemely slow and I just can't deal with that around my lady bits.
