Rated 3 out of 5 by Ingrid Only lasted over a year
I loved this epilator at first, as it did the job better than my previous epilator and quicker because it has more tweezers. It can also be used on wet skin, which I found was less painfull and is easy to clean. But after I had it for a year and a half, it started getting hot and would stop working after just half of the leg, sometimes not even half leg. I tried charging before use, letting it cool between legs, but it does not get better, I think it is ruined now. Need to get a new one, what a shame can not buy a new battery for it...Also it is taking a long time to get all the hair, have to go over the same spot few times, takes me over 30 min for the lower part of my leg, just one leg! Will be looking for epilator that has more tweezers (this one has 40).

Rated 5 out of 5 by didi Dependable Quiet and Effective
I have had this Panasonic wet/dry epilator for 2 years and it is still extremely effective. A superior feature is that it is quieter than most similar products, but its main feature is that it works like a charm. It can be used on any part of the body and wet or dry uses are both effective. I prefer the wet with lather, as it seems a bit less on the sting when it pulls the hair out by the roots. Wonderful product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by didi Quieter than Other Brands - Dependable for 2 years
I have used this product for 2 years and am buying another one soon because I think it may finally be wearing out a bit from the constant use. It works on the entire body, wet or dry. There is nothing to say about this product that is negative - I love it. I have two other brands of epilators, and they work well, but they are truly as loud as lawnmowers! While my Panasonic is not "silent" it is quite reasonable and much quieter and pleasant to use. The charge holds long enough to do the full body, but it will not function while the cord is plugged in, which some of the Emjoi models do. But I found the work life sufficient!

Simply stopped working - used it maybe 10 times, perhaps less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ladysings Exactly what I was looking for
I have facial hair, chin and upper lip. I HATE it!! I am 59, post-menopausal and have elevated testosterone levels, for which I am taking medication. However, that doesn't undo the damage I did shaving.
I just got this unit, charged it and turned it on. The noise was a bit unnerving, but I put the beginner cap in place and began. Yes, there was some discomfort, but I wouldn't call it pain. I followed the instructions, pulling the skin taut, warming my skin and I am so very happy with the outcome. I scrubbed my newly smooth face and loved the feeling.
Now, to find a lotion with a hair growth inhibitor....

Rated 5 out of 5 by TLPRE NICE product
I have never used an epi before but I have waxed my underarms and my entire bikini area (the whole works) So I wanted to try this because I wanted my legs done but waxing your legs are so tedious and messy and time consuming and just not practical. I used to just shave them because Id not have the patience to let enough hair grow that wax can grab on to. I hate body hair. This epi was great did everything I Needed it to, I did flinch while doing my legs of course as I was doing them dry so decided to hop in the shower to finish and it was much less painful in the shower. I mean the pain isnt bad but bad as yanking hair out of your body would be. None of these items or waxing are pain free. Depends on your own tolerance. It did start out a lil more painful then I expected but soon as you start doing it you get used to it and its like getting a tattoo at first you think oh ouch and then a bit later its just an annoying feeling but it was so worth it my skin is so soft and I dont have to get up early to shave tomorrow :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cleo Great Convenient Product!
I was hesitant to buy this model as I didn't find any reviews online and not many videos either on it. But the shop where I purchased it had a deal going and gave me a 30 day return option, so I bought it to try it out. I am extremely happy I did! It is easy to use, change the heads and hardly painful. I have been waxing for years now, so this was a lot less pain, clean (no messes like with wax) and left my arms, legs, and underarms soft and smooth! It will be painful to users who haven't waxed those areas before as it was painful when I tried it on my stomach.
