When you are searching for the right epilator, you should search for a quality product, which has those specific features that are going to make the epilating process short, easy and painless, as much as possible.
Emjoi AP-18 Emagine Dual Opposed 72 Tweezer Head Epilator is the fastest epilator for women. As you can imagine, having 72 tweezers and a rotating head, it removes hair without multiple passes needed, making the epilating last less and reducing the skin irritation. The irritation is also reduced because of its glide technology. With this particular technology, you don't have to press the device down hard on your skin to catch the hair.
Due to its power, this epilator isn't recommended for first-time users. They will experience a lot of pain because they aren't used with epilators and the entire process will have a negative connotation, which it shouldn't happen. On the other hand, the Emjoi AP-18 is perfect for those people who want an effective epilation.
How it works
Let's explain briefly how it works: the epilator head is actually made from 2 parts, 2 heads, each one with 36 tweezers rotating in opposite direction. Doing this action, they actually stretch the skin, making easier to catch the hair and pull it out. Also, in the center there are the "lifting fingers" which will lift the short or flat hairs, snatching them, thus, minimizing the ingrown hair effect. The head is not pivoting, but the entire epilator shape is curved in order to offer better results and to compensate for the motionless head.
The video below will help you to understand exactly how the epilator works and how its head catches the hair.
Most of its users believe that this is the most efficient epilator on the market, but only for large areas, like legs and arms. Using it on smaller areas, like underarms and bikini line can be difficult because of its wide head.
It is a corded device with 2-speed settings, perfect for the entire body if you have some experience. If not, just use it on large areas of your body and after a few sessions, you can use it also on your sensitive and small areas.
This model is not waterproof and it is not designed to be used in the shower or bath. Don't try to clean it in the water because you will destroy it. It works only if it is plugged in, but the long cord makes the process easy.
The company has recently released a new epilator, called Emjoi Ap-18R Emagine Rechargeable Epilator having the same features, only that is is a cordless device, designed for corded and cordless operations.
Although the producer tells us that it can be used on face and body, I wouldn't recommend it on your face. For instance, you won't be able to shape your eyebrows because you won't have the necessary precision for this action. Instead, you can use it on your chin and upper lip. Also, removing the hair from your bony parts will be more difficult because of the large head, but not impossible. Even more, if you want to remove the hair from the bikini area, you should prepare for a lot of pain, at least the first time.
This is only an epilator, if you want a shaver or a trimmer, you should buy them separately. It doesn't have any light, so it can be difficult to see the hair from the shadowed areas. Furthermore, this epilator doesn't work well on very fine hairs, it can break them and leave behind stubble.
