  1. Hi, just wanted to point out something you might want to add to your epilating tips. Maybe it’s on your site already, maybe not, but I personally find it important:
    It’s a good idea to avoid epilating around the time of your period, as you will be experiencing inflammation AND be more sensitive to pain. I’m not sure what the recommended time gap is, but I’d say from the start of PMS symptoms to a few days after your period ends.

  2. Hi
    I wanna buy the epilator and am new to this. As earlier I have only been waxing. But it’s not always convenient so wanna switch to the use of epilator. I have seen few of them in market but relatively confused about which one to buy.
    As I have a high growth but my hair are soft when they grow may b coz of waxing. I have never used blade or razors. So I want an epilator which should not harm my growth

  3. Hi
    I am looking for an epilator that removes hair from roots and can be used all over the body, especially face, and also exfoliates the skin leaving it soft and smooth. Which epilator would you recommend?
