Tonight I decided to be brave and epilate my underarms. I knew it was going to hurt but kept telling myself that it couldn't be that bad. Gosh was I wrong!! I was only going to take pictures to show but after the pain from doing my left underarm first I decided to film myself doing my right arm. I almost did not even want to do it. I could actually hear and feel the hairs being yanked out of my skin. This is far worse that epilating your legs. This is also worse that waxing because when you wax they pull everything off in one pull. With epilateing each individual hair is pulled separately. This is very painful.I do not recommend this to anyone who is sensitive at all. I am not sensitive but honestly this hurts!! I am still going to use it though. If this decreases the growth of underarm hair than I am all for it. I know that the pain will decrease in time, To me the pain is worth it.
I am a BzzAgent and I received this product to test and review.

I read different reviews and blogs before doing this and most said that the pain was excruciating. A few did not finish there legs because of the pain. This added to my fears. As recommended, I took a very warm shower and exfoliated my legs to soften my skin and hairs. I thoroughly dried my legs and did not add any moisturizers at all. I read the directions and placed the recommended attachment for first time users. After much hesitation, I placed the epilator on my right leg. After a quick call out to Jesus for protection, I turned on the epilator. I epilated about 1 inch of leg........my battery died. I couldn't believe it. I know that I charged it a few days ago. But I did show it off to a couple of friends and family the day before. I charged it and started again.
Are you wondering if it hurt? My honest opinion is no. Now I'm not going to tell you that it is painless like the underarms because there is a little bit of discomfort. I do tolerate pain pretty well though. I'm not really sure how to describe this discomfort. Have you ever plucked your eyebrows? If so, where is the most sensitive area to pluck? Imagine you doing that but instead of pulling one hair you are pulling 10 hairs at a time. That is the best way to describe the pain/discomfort. If you are the type of person who can tolerate pain and you are looking for another way to remove hair besides waxing and shaving then epilating may be just for you.
I liked the way my legs felt afterward. They were smooth. I also like the light that is on the epilator. It gives you a better look at the area that you are epilating. It also makes the hairs on your legs stand out more. I am sure that once you epilate a few times it will become less and less painful. I am definitely going to use this for my underarms and legs.
Here are some before and after pictures.
