 Philips HP6401 Epilator is basically the simplest form of epilators while its working is definitely efficient. When one looks at such low priced epilator, there would definitely be some perception of low quality, same was the condition when we had to review it. Every product has pros and cons but Philips HP6401 Epilator is basically a simple single corded product, with a single cap. This model of Philips epilator comes with only a cord and cap.

It is claimed to work efficiently on leg only and it was designed for this purpose, but the question arises if its inexpensiveness justifies the only prominent function of this device, so we had a deep look in to the product and judged it on its effectiveness.

Let’s have a look on what comes in Philips HP6401 Epilator box?

As told above it’s a pretty basic product with smart design and no fancy accessories, but the absence of cleaning brush is utterly disappointing, but the absence of travelling pouch for storage purposes was a bit expected. The product comes with 45 days money back guarantee, in case you are not satisfied with the product. The instruction manual was of course part of the box and it is pretty simple and clear for beginners.

The complete box includes following things.

  • Philips HP6401 Epilator
  • 7 foot long cord
  • Efficiency cap for protection of head
  • Instruction guide for beginners understanding

Efficient Smart Design

The small size of the product is especially designed for ease in usage so it perfectly fits in the palm of your hand”

The outer body of the Philips HP6401 Epilator incorporates a lovely design, basically a print which associates it with the females as it gives a feminine look. It is very flat, lightweight which makes it a preferable choice over the bulkier ones. It is easy to carry and you can take it anywhere. It has the ability to accept 100-220V which makes it perfect for use.

Its cord can be a problem so you have to make sure that the plug is near you, choose the right space where you can comfortably use it. The plastic gears are a bit problematic as we have no idea how long they will last.

Tweezers

“21 Tweezers, not normal for full sized epilator, it is the lowest numbers of tweezers for epilator of this size”

So, the lowest number of tweezers category is owned by Philips. While the highest number of tweezers are of Emoji Ap-18 Emagine; it contains 72 tweezers. The single head with lesser tweezers make it a bit difficult to epilate in short time. The tweezers are not covered though, which makes them contact directly with the skin and it is one of the most efficient features of this product. As per claim it removes hair of 0.5 mm length but our experience turn out to be 3.4mm.

Speed Settings

“The Philips HP6401 Epilator has dual speed settings”

You can adjust the speed according to your requirement. The two speed settings are low and high, the device works faster on high speed. Your choice of setting is depicted by the area you are epilating and amount of hair.

Speed I is for normal hair and for thicker ones speed II is ideal. Its head rotates 29 times/sec at speed I and 34 times on speed II.

Noise Level

“79 decibels-Pretty noisy it is”

This is one of the biggest drawbacks of Philips HP6401 Epilator.  The sound it makes it pretty harsh, however not totally unbearable. It is one of the loudest epilators.

Areas it covers

Mostly recommended for legs”

Because it has one cap it is recommended to use at only one area and legs are the best area it can function effectively. This epilator is not a right choice if you want to use it on other areas as well. However, it can be used on arms, bikini area, arms and underarms. You should also be careful because underarms and bikini area is especially sensitive and can’t bear much pain.

It has only one cap so it should not be used for multiple areas like underarms and face as this might trigger any allergy, so it is not recommended at all. Its use must be limited.

Performance

“Despite of its inexpensiveness, it works effectively”

Just apply the right pressure and choose right directions, you will surely get the best results with Philips HP6401 Epilator. You might have to go over same area twice or thrice because in-spite of claims it doesn’t actually plucks 0.5mm hair. Choose the direction opposite to the growth of hairs and you would surely get the best results.

Pain

It tends to pain lesser in contrast with others as Philips HP6401 Epilator has 21 tweezers so number of hair plucked are less and thus lesser pain.

Conclusion

The device is perfect for beginners and drawbacks like noise can be negated when performance is effective. The one head can be a problem but it is perfect to know if you are an epilator using kind of person or not.

Emjoi Ap-18 Emagine Epilator Review

It is known as one of the best epilatorepilator made so far, the biggest pro of this epilator is its 72 tweezer head which plucks all the hair in one stroke. The 72 tweezer head make this epilator unique because this number of tweezers have never been used. The cord however might not be suitable for some but it definitely is a great epilator with efficient mechanism.

Pros of Emjoi Ap-18 Emagine Epilator

  • 72 tweezers can make any epilator desirable, while Emjoi Ap-18 actually incorporates 72 tweezers on head makes epilating smooth, fast and easy.
  • Thorough cleaning is another pro of this device, because it cleans thoroughly and on the first pass.
  • Easily usable shape of the device makes it much easier for you to hold the device in right place.
  • This device is also known to cause less pain than other conventional epilators, because of the dual heads, designed to press down the area.
  • This epilator also minimizes the production of ingrown hair, the middle lifting fingers of this device plucks the small and flat hairs, thus reducing the risk of hair growth.
  • The epilators use energy for its efficient performance therefore it is necessary that it is plugged in, the long 8 feet cord makes it easier to put it in any nearby switchboard.
  • The machine is designed for multipurpose and it can be used anywhere like armpits, bikini area, legs as well as for catching individual hair on face.
  • The device comes with 1-year warranty.

Cons of Emjoi Ap-18 Emagine Epilator

  • There can be a little pain in the start if epilating large amount of hair, but the device is really efficient in terms of handling pain.
  • The epilator has no light which means it can be difficult for you to see if all hair are plucked but you can use it under bright lights in order to ensure maximum performance.
  • All the hair you remove fall directly on the ground so it would be better if you use it would be better if you don’t use it on carpeted floor.
  • There is no shaving head with the trimmer and if you wish to remove longer hair then you are strictly advised to trim the hair first with separate trimmer.
  • The large head of the machine makes it difficult to reach out smaller areas and it can cause a problem on knees and other bony areas.
  • Small and fine hair would be a problem to pluck because the epilator would simply break the hair instead of plucking them out properly.
  • Continuous power supply is vital for working.
  • This is a high performance epilator and charges highly but once you buy it, you will save a lot of money you pay to the salons.

Design

The design of this epilator is quite handy, it is a little bulky as compared to others but handling it is much easy. However, it resembles men shaver somewhat but the hot red color covers it. The concave shape of the epilator also makes it easier to handle. It can clean the bigger areas swiftly but the smaller areas might need a little more effort.

The gears are located on the sides but compared to metal gears, these plastic gears can be a little problem. The cord’s jack is located on the bottom of the device. The power button is also easy to handle and is located on the middle.

Tweezers

The most highlighted feature of this device is the tweezers, which also make it ultimately best epilator available. The epilator’s selling point is the number of tweezers and people do admire its efficiency based on the number of tweezers it contains. The number of hair plucked increases while the time and energy consumed decreases almost halfway through.

Speed

Two different settings are available on this epilator. The safety switch lock is another smart feature of this device. Just push the lock up and you can switch between speeds. You can choose low speed for finer hair but for thicker and larger hair high speed will probably work best.

Head

This device contains dual heads which revolve in opposite direction, containing 36 tweezers on each head. When the opposite movement of heads work the skin is pulled tight, making it easier for the small hairs to be plucked out. The dual heads also make sure that the larger area of skin is cleaned. In between both heads, there are lifting fingers which pluck out the small and fine hair. The device also features glide technology which helps the epilating process without pushing the device too hard on the skin. This is a great preventive feature which makes this device even more desirable. Along with that antibacterial coating is also done on the heads making sure that no microorganism grow on the device.

Parts of skin

The epilator is based upon a multipurpose technique which makes it desirable for use at different areas of the skin including face (Chin, upper lip), bikini, area, arm pit, arms and legs off course. The epilator can be used on other highly sensitive areas of the body but the pain levels are usually high so be cautious. Shaving makes the skin look dark therefore epilating is advised usually.

Performance

The overall reviews and usage of this epilator is great and it tends to less painful than others, however it is bit overpriced. Usually reviews say that it is totally worth the price in terms of the performance. It is much faster than most of the epilators with its efficient tweezer head. You can take a bath or shower in order to open your skin pores for excellent performance.

Conclusion

With the all amazing features, the cord and price just dim out. The excellent performance of this device makes it absolutely admirable.

Best Hair Removal Options For Women

I am writing this post because every woman wants a hair removal method which is less painful, at affordable; price, keep hairs stay away for longer period of time as well as the method which is safe for your skin.

Epilators

Epilation is the fast growing method which preferred by women and I also recommend this top technique as once will feel less pain than other techniques as well as it keeps hair to regrow again for about 6 weeks. There are different types of epilators available in market, some of them are good sensitive body parts and some can be used on the whole body. Some of the good epilators I am sharing below.

Shaving

Shaving is an old technique used by women to remove hairs from different body parts. Shaving is better  option to remove hairs from legs and arms but one cannot use it on sensitive areas of the body. Shaving makes your hairs much thicker and the hairs will grow faster.

Plucking

Plucking is another option for hair removal but its effectiveness is very limited as one can use it at face and for eyebrows. If one has less amount of hairs at face then she can use plucker to remove unwanted hairs.

Depilatory Creams

Depilatory Creams are quite useful as it is cheaper than many other methods to remove hairs. You can remove hair from legs, arms, face as well as sensitive body parts like bikini area. But keep in mind when you are using this type of product that don’t keep the cream for longer period of time as its has many types of chemicals which can harm your skin.

Waxing

Waxing is my second preferable method to get rid of unwanted hairs as it is very cheap and effective with low side effects. If a woman has a sensitive skin then she might get rashes of waxing or may feel burning sensation after  Do not use waxing at bikini and other sensitive areas of the body.
