Epilator Reviews

Still not decided which is the best hair removal epilator for you? Not quite sure if the top rated epilator in the epilator comparison table is right for your needs? Never fear, in this section I’ll provide you with some more detailed epilator hair removal reviews of the best epilator brands.

Once you find a brand whose quality and performance you feel comfortable with, it narrows down the selection of models to choose from. While I don’t provide specific epilator for face reviews, I do provide details on which brands offer an attachment that lets you use their epilator on face hair. Like I said earlier, I’m all about efficiency and reduced clutter, so when I buy epilators, I’m looking for the best epilator for face and body.

Braun epilator

If you’ve already scrolled through Braun epilator reviews on any other sites, you’ll have noticed that it is continually rated the best brand. And for good reason. The Braun epilator range is top-of-the-line, and contains as standard many of the features that some other brands offer only in premium models (for example: a light, massage rollers, etc).

If you don’t know if epilating is right for you, you may not want to spend a lot of money on a premium model. But that doesn’t mean that you have to give up on getting a Braun. You can still pick up an older-model Braun epilator online. If that’s what you plan to do, I recommend that the absolute earliest model you consider is the Braun Silk-epil 3 which you should be able to find online for under $50. In short, if you’re a first timer who wants to get the best experience possible by starting out with a quality epilator, or if you’re looking for an upgrade for your next model, you can’t go wrong with selecting one of the Braun models.

Emjoi epilator

This Emjoi epilator review is somewhat nostalgic, as the brand of the first epilator I ever owned. Unfortunately the model I owned is now out of production, otherwise I’d recommend them unreservedly (that’s the one that lasted for 8 years and never died).

Emjoi has done something really interesting, which is to be the first on the market to introduce dual opposed tweezer heads. This means you can get 72 tweezers as opposed to the standard 40. More tweezers means faster hair removal, and that’s the dream!

I should caution, though, that while this would be great for experienced epilators I wouldn’t recommend it for first timers who aren’t yet used to having their hair yanked out by the roots.

Emjoi also does a specific epilator for men. The Emjoi AP-18MS Emagine Epilator for Men is a corded model, and comes in black. Apart from the colour, there is virtually no difference between this model and their women’s epilator so for any women who prefer the colour black to red, feel free to purchase this one instead!

Philips epilator

Philips have their fingers in lots of electronics pies, so I guess it shouldn’t be surprising that they’re producing epilators as well. Philips epilators aren’t particularly fancy, but they do compare favourably in terms of epilator price. For this reason, the Philips epilator range usually appeals to people who are just starting out.

Remington epilator

Much like Philips, Remington epilators appeal to men because of the brand familiarity. If I’m brutally honest, although I’d place them in the top four epilator brands they’re not my favourite. A lot of people report having trouble with the motors, and my own experience owning one (for a brief time) wasn’t particularly joyful. Still, if you’re particularly wedded to Remington as a brand and you wouldn’t otherwise buy a leg epilator, then I say go for it.

Remington is another one that often compares favourably in terms of epilator price. Click to view the latest model.

ModelBest forRatingCordlessWet/DryLightAssessmentPrice
Braun Silk-épil 9 Legs, underarms, bikini (using included attachments)*****YesBothYesBest-selling epilator from the leading company. Price is higher than entry-level models, but you really can't go wrong with this one.$$$
Remington Smooth & Silky
Leg, underarms, beginners, budget***NoDryNoAffordable, no-frills epilator. Good news is that you won't have battery issues (there's no cordless/shower option!). Overall a fairly decent budget option.$
Emjoi Emagine
Stubborn/course hair, ****NoDryNoThe big sell here is the 72 dual opposed tweezers (most epilators have 40) that promise to remove more hairs in a single pass. In reality, the difference isn't as significant as I would have expected.$$
Epilady Legend
Legs*YesBothNoI was really disappointed with this one. Other reviewers reported it breaking down after just a few months. To my mind, not worth the risk as you can get much better epilators for the same price.$
Panasonic Wet/Dry
Legs, arms, face (with attachment)***YesBothYesPretty good, smooth, I've linked to one that comes with some great attachments.$$
Philips Satinelle
**YesBothYesGood budget model, has a wide head which (theoretically) means more hairs captured in a single pass.$
