Epilator, razor and wax Razor or epilator? For all women who dream of satin-smooth skin on a budget, La Redoute offers hair-removal appliances for at-home hair removal. For women in a hurry who want a practical solution to their hair removal needs: a lady's razor or a waterproof electric epilator for quick hair removal in the shower. The gentlest will prefer the painless depilatory roller or the pulsed-light epilator for virtually permanent hair removal. Hot wax remains a safe bet for legs and sensitive areas such as underarms, bikini line and down. Waxing has been around for over 2,000 years! As for fans of traditional waxing, the models on offer are not only increasingly efficient, but also, and above all, less and less painful, unlike the classic razor technique. For a practical electric epilator, it's best to opt for a more versatile model. To be sure you're choosing the right electric epilator, you first need to make sure it's compatible with different hair types. It can be connected directly to the shaver, or as a kit to be used with the shaver. Some electric epilators are capable of removing hair from all areas of the body, even so-called "black" or ingrown hairs. To be sure you're on the right track, choose a model that offers a degree of versatility. If you prefer a device offering more discreet hair regrowth, you should opt for models that incorporate a pulsed function. Finally, if you want to make sure you don't get ingrown hairs when shaving, a model equipped with a shaving head may be just what you're looking for. The advantage of interchangeable heads is that you don't need to change the model depending on the hair on your face or the rest of your body: changing the head used will suffice. Battery-powered electric epilators are the most popular models with users, as they offer a very distinctive and, above all, very comfortable result. However, you should be aware that their price can be relatively high, as they come in different models depending on autonomy and options offered. That's why, when choosing a battery-powered electric epilator, you should always rely on the recommendations of health professionals. Because battery-powered devices are sensitive to humidity, the risk of burns and cuts is higher. Electric epilators with rechargeable batteries are much more comfortable to use than those with conventional batteries, and mean you won't have to buy new batteries regularly. You can also benefit from several months' autonomy.
