Panasonic ES-ED90-P Wet and Dry Epilator Review

panasonic esed90pPanasonic perhaps aren’t the most prolific of manufacturers when it comes to Epilators, but they have a prestigious history of making great electric products including grooming products and household items. They are a worldwide brand, and you can count on them for a wide range of your needs, but is this the case with Epilators? Are they up to our high standards here at Best Epilator Guide?

Panasonic have taken on Emjoi, Silk-Epil and more top of the range models, and haven’t been shy on the price here. The RRP is up over $100, so the expectations for the product will be high for those parting with their hard-earned cash. Does it live up to it?

Features of the Panasonic ES-ED90-P

The first thing to mention is that it is wet and dry. This means that it is waterproof (100% waterproof as the manufacturers claim), so you can use it in the shower or bath, can wash it completely and avoid any mess when you’re removing that unwanted hair. This goes some way to justifying the price tag, but the other features are also impressive.

A cleverly designed head sticks out as a real plus point, it is at a 60 degree angle and has 48 rotating tweezers for the most efficient removal going, and to shape to the contour of your body. It really does make it easier to use. The “side-to-side hiding shaving head” is there to help to treat the skin softly, something we are all grateful for when it comes to the pain we can experience with hair removal. The¬†hypo-allergenic blade makes it a good choice even for people who suffer with sensitive skin, and will avoid irritation.

The battery is brilliant, and takes under an hour to charge fully in some cases.

The icing on the cake is the 6 heads that are on offer. Different attachments are in place for different needs, and are designed for use on different areas such as the bikini line, feet and more. This turns this into one of the most versatile epilators on the market today.

What Others Have Said

Customer reviews from Amazon
Customer reviews for the Panasonic ES-ED90-P are overwhelmingly on the positive side of the spectrum, suggesting that the price tag is after all justified. Many have made the inevitable Emjoi comparison, and it has to be said that this model comes off favorably in most peoples’ views. A brilliant 4.1 out of 5 average rating on Amazon speaks for itself. Areas where this epilator thrives includes the underarms, which can traditionally be a really tough area for women to deal with, the bikini area and pretty much anywhere else, and as I have already mentioned, those six different heads really come into their own when you need to focus on different areas.


The electronics powerhouse that is Panasonic have thrown their weight around with this model, and have created one of the top selling Epilators in the world, and certainly on Amazon. It is costly, but then not many epilators come cheap, and in many respects the phrase ‘you get what you pay for’ is apt. Works brilliantly on thick and fine hairs, and comes with top recommendation from us!
