Braun stole the show with this lightweight, compact, and attractive model. It does a fantastic job of safely removing hair with less discomfort.

We like some of the little touches Braun added to this unit. If you’re pressing the epilator too hard against your skin, a red light comes on to basically tell you to lighten up.

It’s also quite versatile, in that it does more than just pull hair. You can swap out the MicroGrip epilator head and replace it with a trimmer or shaving razor. It’s a quick and easy way to take care of your body grooming all in one sitting.

Other attachments include a massager and a skin contact cap. You get a charging stand for the epilator, making recharging a breeze. There’s also a handy facial brush included that works to exfoliate your skin.

Features

  • 10.2 x 3.7 x 7.8 inches
  • 7 heads included

Ease of Use

Thanks to its waterproof design, you can safely use the epilator and its attachment heads in the shower or bathtub.

Braun makes back-to-back appearances with models that are very similar. The Silk-Epil 3 is more affordable by comparison. Yet it delivers much of the same quality found in the Silk-Epil 9.

It sports a compact and smooth design that’s easy to hold. Its speeds are adjustable, too. So you have more control over how quickly you remove hair.

You also get 2 extra head attachments for complete body grooming. One is a trimmer that lets you shape up areas. The other is a razor for shaving sensitive places you don’t want to pluck. You can use these in the shower or tub thanks to the waterproof construction.

Although the Silk-Epil 3 is a rather budget-friendly model, it performs remarkably well. Yes, it’s still somewhat painful depending on the thickness of your hair. But the more you use it, the easier it becomes.

A built-in “Smart Light” makes it easier to see hairs you might normally have missed. For the price, this is a commendable epilator.

Features

  • 2.56 x 7.09 x 7.76 inches
  • Adjustable speed
  • Built-in light
  • 9.1 ounces

Ease of Use

Thanks to its speed control and massaging head, hair removal is quick and easy. The device is a breeze to maneuver, too, due to its rounded shape. Just be sure to be cautious when pulling thick hair.

It tends to be rather painful. Thankfully, the more you do this, the easier it becomes.

Panasonic delivers an all-in-wonder that does much more than hair removal. Its interchangeable heads allow you to get a full body grooming session, all from one device!

We found this one to be a pleasure to use, as it’s great for beginners. The heads switch out with ease, too. So there’s no fighting or wrestling. Just easy body maintenance.

We love that you can use it in the shower or while taking a bath. Its waterproof design lends to its user-friendliness, making this one a great buy for anyone.

The ES-ED90-P takes about an hour to fully charge. Once complete, you can expect to get around 30 minutes of run-time.

Want to give yourself a pedicure while you’re at it? Panasonic includes attachments for that, too. If you’re looking to get your money’s worth, this is the epilator to get.

Features

  • 1.6 x 2.3 x 5.3 inches
  • 30-minute run-time
  • Waterproof
  • 9.6 ounces

Simply swap out the head you want and switch it on. The extra attachments go a long way in speeding up your body care regimen. You’ll find there’s less of a need for other accessories, as this all-in-one device handles quite a lot.

Emjoi brings to you another corded option for removing hair. This robust epilator is packed with a staggering 72 tweezers. If you’re looking for the least amount of pain in your hair-removing venture, this is the unit for you.

The head zips along at a nice clip, pulling hairs at an astonishing rate. Now you know why this model is designed to be corded. With speed and power like that, you can’t afford for it to run out of battery.

We like that the epilator safely brings hair to the surface before pulling it out. This goes a long way in eliminating unnecessary pain.

We were quite happy with the performance of Emjoi’s Emagine. It packs a punch that is both quick and effective.

Not only that, but its asking price isn’t unreasonable. Considering the quality of hair removal you’re getting here, we’d say it’s more than fair.

Features

  • 1.5 x 5 x 5 inches
  • 72-tweezers
  • Adjustable
  • 14 ounces

Ease of Use

You can adjust the Emagine’s speeds to your liking, making operation more tolerable. The unit is compact and light, too. We found it to be very easy to maneuver. This is a big plus when you’re trying to get those hard-to-reach areas.

  • Smooth performance
  • User-friendly

  • Cordless
  • Not for body
check price

Just interested in doing your face? We recommend Remington’s Facial Epilator. This budget-friendly little model is about the size of a hair trimmer, so you shouldn’t try it on your body.

Besides, it’s made specifically for the face. It comes equipped with 6 tweezers. We found that they remove with speed and precision.

You’ll also appreciate that it is cordless. The best part is that there’s no messing with recharging or cords. Just pop in a single AA battery and you’re good to go.

This makes it ideal for travel. You can throw it in your bag with a couple of spare batteries and forget about it.

As big as it is compared to other entries, it’s surprisingly lightweight. It’s very easy to control and maneuver over the contours of your face.

Features

  • 1.5 x 3.6 x 8 inches
  • Battery-powered
  • 6 tweezers
  • 5 ounces

Ease of Use

Remington knocked it out of the park with this one. It costs no more than a couple of trips to Starbucks, yet it’s highly-effective. A single button controls its operation for a user-friendly experience.


6. Epilady Speed Review - Best Budget Corded Epilator

https://solidguides.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Epilady-Speed-94x175.jpg
  • Great for bikini area
  • Smooth shape
  • User-friendly
  • Affordable
  • No cordless mode
check price

Epilady’s corded Speed epilator is a commendable entry that won’t break the bank. This affordable little unit works well on all skin types with quick and easy performance.

The compact design makes getting at hard-to-reach angles much easier. We found it to work really well on the bikini area, in particular.

There are 2 speeds on this model that let you control how quickly you remove hair. There are a total of 40 mini tweezers that work to pull 31,000 times per minute.

You won’t be taking this epilator with you into the shower, as it’s for dry use only. But considering the low price, that’s a small caveat to deal with.

Features

  • 2.5 x 1 x 4 inches
  • Dry-use only
  • 4 ounces
  • Corded

Ease of Use

This corded epilator provides plenty of power without the need for recharging. A 3-level switch on the face of the unit controls the power and 2 speeds.

https://solidguides.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Philips-Beauty-HP640150-102x175.jpg
  • User-friendly
  • Cute design
  • Affordable
  • Compact
  • Limited functions
  • No cordless mode
check price

This cute little unit from Philips is an affordable way to safely remove hair. We love the comfortable shape of the Beauty. It’s easy to maneuver over your body, and pulls even the most stubborn hair.

There are 2 speed settings, so you can control the rate in which you remove hair. We were quite pleased with how smooth the Beauty left our legs.

There are some potential downsides, though. It’s not a cordless epilator, so you’re always tethered to an outlet. This does, however, give you unlimited use.

You also won’t find any extra attachments. But for epilating, it does what it’s designed to do. If you’re looking to remove hair in the shower or tub, you’ll want to look elsewhere.

The Philips Beauty is not waterproof. So you’re going to be taking a hit on the versatility offered by other models. Thankfully, it’s quite affordable and stands to save you money.

Features

  • 2.2 x 6.8 x 8.5 inches
  • Dry-use removal
  • 2 speeds
  • 8 ounces

Ease of Use

Simply plug the Beauty in and flip it on. It’s easy to use and great for first-timers. And being corded means there’s no messing with recharging or waiting to use it.


8. Panasonic Cordless Shaver & Epilator Review - Most Attractive

Panasonic returns with a classy epilator you’ll be proud to own. This premium unit sports a unique design that will look great in any bathroom.

It comes with several interchangeable heads for easy body maintenance. Whether you’re looking to exfoliate or trim your bikini area, Panasonic delivers the goods. There are a total of 7 heads for greater convenience.

This versatile epilator gently massages as it pulls. It comes equipped with 60 tweezers that work to reduce pain as much as possible. The head pivots as you use it. This helps get difficult angles with ease.

Thanks to its waterproof design, you can use the epilator in the shower or tub without fear of damaging its internal components. This is a great way to use some soothing gel to make the process go smoother.

We really enjoyed taking this one for a spin. It’s a high-class model that performs exceptionally well. Just be prepared to shell out a handsome sum for it, as it’s pretty pricey.

Features

  • 1.8 x 2.6 x 6.4 inches
  • 7 attachments
  • Waterproof
  • 5.9 ounces

Ease of Use

A built-in LED light guides you as you remove hair. Combined with the pivoting head, you’ll have a much easier time with your body grooming needs.


9. Remington Smooth & Silky Review - Best Budget Cordless Epilator

https://solidguides.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Remington-Smooth-Silky-175x175.jpg
  • Comfortable shape
  • Adjustable speed
  • Easy to use
  • Built-in light
  • Bulky design
check price

The Remington Smooth & Silky is a relatively inexpensive option for those who are just learning the ropes. It’s not quite as comfortable as other entries, but it certainly gets the job done.

There are a total of 40 tweezers at work to remove your hair. We like that Remington included an LED light for better visibility.

The shape of the Smooth & Silky is, well, smooth. It’s comfortable to hold and it’s fairly lightweight. Our only gripe is that it’s a bit bulky. It can sometimes be hard to see exactly what you’re doing.

It is, however, cordless. So it’s easier to maneuver over your body. We appreciate that the Smooth & Silky is waterproof, too. We prefer using our epilators in the shower, and this makes it possible.

Features

  • 3 x 8.4 x 4 inches
  • 12.8 ounces
  • 40 tweezers
  • Waterproof

Ease of Use

A low battery power warning light lets you know when it’s time to recharge. And there’s an option to adjust its speed for slower or faster hair removal. This is handy with different thicknesses of hair.


10. Philips Satinelle Review - Best for Underarms

https://solidguides.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Philips-Satinelle-222x175.jpg
  • Comfortable design
  • Shaves and pulls
  • Great for arms
  • Lightweight
  • Struggles on other areas of body
check price

If you’ve been looking for a quick and (fairly) easy way to remove underarm hair, Philips has the solution. The Satinelle is a waterproof epilator that you can use in or out of the shower.

It sports a wide head that gently brings hair to the surface before pulling it. We were pleased with the efficiency in which this unit works.

You also get an electric shaver head for greater versatility. The performance of both is smooth and effective. This helps to cut down on your preparation time.

As a cordless model, you can expect to get up to 40 minutes of run-time on a single charge. There’s even a built-in light to help you better see what you’re doing.

Features

  • 2.6 x 5.8 x 7.3 inches
  • 11.2 ounces
  • 32 tweezers
  • Waterproof

Ease of Use
