I bought this because of all the youtubers who swore by this product. My legs are a bit on the hairy side, and I thought that this would save me trips to the salon, and definitely cut down the amount of times I shave with. While that is true, I find that the epilator breaks the hair more than it pulls out the whole hair. That left me with TONS of unsightly itchy bumps and ingrowns that were a HUGE pain to deal with. On top of that, the breakage meant that the hairs came back just as thick as before. While there were times that it pulled out the whole hair & the root, the amount of time & money I've spent getting rid of the ingrowns makes me not use this anymore.
