Epilating vs. Waxing – Which is Better?

emjoi softHair removal has been a popular beauty regiment for decades. Many women have enjoyed removing unwanted hair all across their body, leaving their skin smooth and healthy. For many women, the preferred method of hair removal is waxing. Waxing is a technique that uses sticky chemicals to grab onto the tiny hairs and pull them up all at once. This technique is painful for many women, but can lead to the best results. For those who would rather not turn to waxing to remove hair, epilators have been a great alternative to satisfy their needs. Epilators are small, electronic devices that use rotating discs to grab and pull hair in quick succession, much like waxing. Unlike waxing however, epilators can be used over and over again and without the use of chemicals that damage the skin. Epilators can come in different models, such as cordless, corded, or even battery-rechargeable.

So which is better, epilating or waxing? The answer is simple. Each has its pros and cons, but the bottom line is that it really comes down to the consumer’s personal preference. Waxing has been around a lot longer than epilating, and has satisfied countless women. It is far more popular than epilating, and is used worldwide and sold exclusively in many beauty stores. Epilators on the other hand are quicker to get the job done, and come in several different models and types. They can be taken almost anywhere and used at any time, and clean up is far faster than traditional waxing. The downside to epilators is that they can be very pricey depending on where the consumer gets them, while regular waxing products can be bought for half the price of most epilators. Most epilators can last for several years, and even come with 30 day money back guarantees. This makes them more than worth the cost to purchase one, and they last much longer than traditional waxing products.

In summary, it’s up to the consumer to decide whether waxing or epilating is the right choice for them. While epilators have an up front cost that is more than traditional waxing, they can be used over and over again for a long time, overall they will probably save you money. Waxing tends to be more painful than epilating, and can sometimes cause skin issues to arise due to the chemicals involved. Epilators can be taken almost anywhere, and many run on batteries that can be recharged. We, as you may be able to guess, tend to prefer Epilators for most of the reasons above, if you buy the best model you can do the job effectively, with less pain, and a lot more simplicity. The reason we think it wins the battle is because of the fact that you can do it yourself, and while on the go. Want to take an Epilator on holiday with you? No problem. Planning to wax while you’re there? Could be more difficult, finding a salon, or going through the rigmarole of trying to do it yourself or with a partner. The convenience factor goes a long way, and while everyone has their own preference, this is the method we recommend.
