How you remove unwanted hair is largely a matter of preference. Some of our women testers found that using an epilator or hot wax was painful, while others said that depilatories smelled bad and were messy. And those who had previously used razors weren't happy with any electric shaver they tried. Different methods work best for different people, and you might have to try several before you find the one that's right for you.
If you're trying an electric razor or epilator for the first time, give yourself some time to get used to it, because it can take a while to develop the right technique. For that reason, choose a shaver or epilator with at least a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can return it if the product doesn't work well for you. This women's shaver and hair-removal guide will help you choose.
