Epilators hurt. It doesn't matter if it's a $20 one or $60 dollar one, they all feel the same: PAIN. While it does get better the more you use it, it's almost not even worth getting to that point as it takes WEEKS. The only good thing I can think about these guys is that it does prevent ingrown hairs. However, ripping your hair follicle out also leaves that pore empty and open to infection, so you have to be extra careful to keep it and yourself clean.
