Gillette for women
Epilators pluck the hair from the roots, but sometimes, the outer layer of the skin is also peeled off, resulting in damage to skin. It may take some weeks for the skin damage to get healed.
The materials used for epilators and other hair removal products varies depending on the price of the product. For low cost products, the epilator can be used for a few months and then has to be discarded.
The Morphy Richards Epitrave is compact, but Braun 3170 Silk Epil Softperfection is the more effective epilator for hair removal.
The Panasonic ES 2058 epilator is one of the most expensive epilators available in the Indian market today. The inbuilt battery is charged using a 230 V AC supply for 12 hours. It has the following advantages over the lower priced epilators that are reviewed earlier

Philips Satinelle Epilator HP 6609 is more compact compared to other epilators, but has a few design flaws which detract from its performance. When connected to 230 V power supply through a Belkin surge suppressor, it does not work at all, but functions intermittently when connected directly to the mains supply or through a GM power guard. Though it costs about Rs 1000 ($25) more than the Braun Silk Epil 3170, its performance is not as good.
