epilate : the removal of hair by the roots
I’ll admit: Epilation scares me to death.
I like having smooth legs, don’t get me wrong. But I don’t like the prospect of having to endure pain unnecessarily.
That said, I know some people opt to epilate instead of shave because it allows them to have smooth legs for weeks.
That’s right. Epilators “remove hair at the root for smooth and stubble-free legs for up to 4 weeks.”
It sounds enticing. After all, I have to pull out my regular razor several times each week if I want stubble-free gams. If I switched to epilation, I could potentially save a lot of time.
Time is important to me so I’ve considered it, but I don’t think I’m quite ready to “make the leap.”
What about you? Do you epilate or would you want to give it a try?
Today, I’m pleased to be giving away a Braun Silk-epil Xpressive Epilator to one reader. The Xpressive has these marketable features:
- trademarked HairLift system that gently loosens, lifts, and removes hair by the roots
- a flexible head that can pivot up to 15 degrees forward and back
- 40 minutes running time when fully charged; recharges fully in just one hour
Plus, the Xpressive is quite sleek and impressive looking. And it’s available at most major retailers.
