A Smooth Life’s epilator reviews are here to make sure you find the best epilator for you. If you travel or are going somewhere on holiday, this is a highly recommended companion. Besides being smaller and lighter than most hair killing machines, the Emjoi Epi Slim is unbeatable for both portability and price.
A Closer Look
The Emjoi Epi Slim is great at what it does. It’s a compact epilator built for hair removal of the upper lip, chin, cheeks, bikini line and underarms. Basically the more sensitive areas of your body. It has a narrow strip of 9 rotating tweezers that allow for a gentler plucking of hairs than some of its counterparts.
Taking care of unwanted facial hair and keeping your underarms smooth can often be an arduous and expensive task. Everyone is different and even using other epilators on your face can be too much for a person. That’s one of the main reasons we love the Epi Slim. Its lightweight, unintimidating and works so well on sensitive areas, leaving you hairless for up to 6 weeks.
What about the pain?
An added bonus to using this model is that the amount of pain we felt was completely minimal, and most women agree. Redness that often comes with the act of epilation was most of the time not even an issue. It should also be mentioned that the Epi Slim is quieter, if less powerful, than other brands.
This is a must for business trips and holidays. Sometimes it can be a hassle finding an outlet for your electric devices, which is why when you’re out of the country batteries are king. The Epi Slim runs on 2 AA batteries, so either bring a backup couple with you or easily find some replacements at a shop if it runs out. We feel like this is much better than carrying razors (airplanes aren’t too keen) or hair removal cream (exploded in my bag one too many times) around.
Sensitive Area Specialisation
A downside to this epilator is that it’s limited to sensitive areas and can’t tackle larger body parts such as legs, thighs and arms. Of course it’s capable of doing them but due to its small size, it would take a while. What we do think its great for is if you get a wax and find a few missed hairs, you can easily remove them with the Epi Slim. Touch-ups are also very doable.
A lot of women find it difficult to remove hair in the tighter spots with larger epilators, despite their attachments. That’s where this model shines. If you tend to wax or shave those areas for this reason but still want the smoothness of an epilator, this model is definitely what you’ve been looking for.
If this is your first epilator, the Emjoi Epi Slim is a great place to start. With the device comes a bit of advice: before using the epilator on your body, take some time to get used to the speed and the plucking sensation by testing it on the back of your hand. We totally agree with this. It will make you feel much more comfortable if you’ll be using the epilator on sensitive body parts. Also remember to make sure your skin is pulled taut, allowing hairs to be pulled most effectively.
The battery operated Emjoi Epi Slim is a fantastic product for its price. Out of the box we felt that the build quality was decent and it was clearly made well. It’s easy to hold with its long, curved shape and won’t slip out of your hands. It comes with a brush, making it very easy to clean and is a great money saver if you’re used to waxing. Epilating is much healthier than waxing for your skin, especially in sensitive areas. This is where the Epi Slim shines. As a travel option or for at-home epilation, this is a must have.
