Here we list the quietest epilators available to buy without sacrificing functionality, effectiveness, and time in getting the job done. Most people who use epilators deal with the dilemma of wondering whether they’re holding an epilator or a jackhammer. Some epilators are just way too noisy and let’s be honest, the noise is pretty disturbing and can be off-putting. Besides, we don’t want our neighbors to know that we’ve been removing all those extra hairs in the bathroom all the while we’re there, right?
Luckily, technology is improving and epilators are getting a lot less noisy, we’ve listed those closest to achieving silence below.
Panasonic ES-WD-51-P Epilator
Operates with a noise level of 67dB (decibels), this little monster is fit for the job while keeping its voice as silent as possible. Most of its users’ say that it is less painful compared to other epilators they’ve used and it’s pretty much a complete package with its 3-in-1 hair removal system. It can trim, shave, and epilate all at the same time. The trimmer can be used to trim the hair to the ideal length for epilating. It is made up of 48 tweezers which means faster epilation, and can work cordless for up to 40 minutes.
Braun Silk-Epil Xpressive 7681 Epilator
An all-around epilator that can epilate efficiently in almost all body parts. Yes, it still makes a grinding sound, but it is not something that’s irritating. In this list, as per functionality, this is probably the best. It picks up the shortest hair up to 0.5mm and is currently the number one sought after epilator. It’s not painless although it’s not really that painful. The Braun 7681 can work in both wet and dry environment. Epilating under running water greatly reduces the pain. You might want to take note of that. It also comes with a built-in smartlight to better see the spot being epilated.
Braun 5280 Silk-Epil Epilator
Another award winning epilator from Braun. Falls short as compared to its brother who’s really an epilating powerhouse, but pretty well-versed as well in functionality. The difference is the pain. This one is less painful, with 40 well-positioned tweezers and soft tips which makes epilating much less of a painful deal. Has a built-in massage rollers that stimulates the skin, before and after epilating, that greatly reduces skin irritation and discomfort. A great buy, I would say, especially for beginners who are just trying out epilating. Fits perfectly in the palm of the hand for better maneuverability. Compact and good for travelling. Sound produced is very much just like a quiet electric men shaver.
However irritated we could be, it’s almost impossible to make a totally silent epilator, at least not yet. The mechanism itself will produce noise since it makes the discs or tweezers spin at a fast rate, making epilation possible. However, there are always ways to reduce the noise. One way is by putting the cap that comes with the epilator. This list will be your guide in buying a really quiet epilator, that will put you at east, without sacrificing the much needed value for money. Try them for yourself and see which fits your mold.
