If you're looking for an excellent epilator, then you've made the right choice. I've been using it for about a month now and I'm very satisfied with the purchase. If you're a first-timer and are worried about the pain, then remember, epilating hurts way less than waxing. It can be a little time consuming but it leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. Plus, the light is a bonus -- helps you notice those tiny hairs that could be missed. It is less messy and easier to clean and maintain. Thanks to the brush! It is worth the money.
