Being beautiful can be an unforgiving process: this also applies when it comes to hair removal. Aside from the fact that an epilator is simply a device which tears out hair from its root, there are many differences in product quality or function which can cause your epilation experience to be easy-peasy or a real pain. For example: is there a massage function? That’s useful for preparing your skin for the epilation process and to avoid extra discomfort. Through an exfoliation function, your pores will open slightly and be prepared for the hair removal process. 

We’d like to introduce the 6 best epilators which probably won’t make the epilation process enjoyable, but at least bearable! And the results speak for themselves: silky smooth skin for weeks, after only one short epilation session. Of course, there are other hair removal options: shaving, waxing, hair removal cream. Epilation is essentially the electronic version of waxing: the same result with less mess.

The Braun Silk-Epil 9/980 takes the first place on our list. Not only does it look sleek, its functions also takes the cake in our product comparison. Its wide epilating head allows it to cover more surface area at once. The unique MicroGrip technology removes four times as much hair as waxing does. Thanks to new SensoSmart technology, this epilator can remove finer hairs even more effectively.

This epilator from Braun is offered with 13 extras and guarantees a complete home spa experience. Some of the extras include a body exfoliation brush and a bikini trimmer for sensitive areas. Additionally, the facial cap, skin contact cap and shaver and trimmer cap ensure that you can remove hair from even the most sensitive areas. The Silk-Epil 9 is also waterproof, so you can feel free to use it in the shower or bathtub.

The Silk-Epil 7 is hardly inferior to the Silk Epil-9. The only differences are fewer extras, a narrower epilating head and slightly weaker battery power.

It features the same SensoSmart and MicroGrip technology to create an especially effective epilation experience. This cordless Wet and Dry epilator can be used in the bathtub as well as the shower. Additionally, it comes complete with a body and face-trimmer.

This cordless epilator from Philips is multifaceted in the art of hair removal: with diverse epilating heads, you can remove hair from your legs and face. The razor attachment allows for especially gentle hair removal in sensitive areas, while the trimmer attachment allows you to shorten longer hairs. The Satinelle Prestige is also waterproof and can be used wet or dry. Similar to the Epilators from Braun, this one from Philips comes complete with a great set of extras. Some of those extras include a body massage attaching, an exfoliating head, and a cleaning brush.

This small epilator is also cord-free, which makes it easy and convenient to use. However, this epilator is unfortunately not waterproof like many of the others on our list (use in the bath or shower is not recommended). The Satinelle Essential comes with fewer extras, but for the same reason is quite affordable.

The results, however, are just as satisfying. The Satinelle Essential has multiple small tweezers which can remove hairs as small as 0,5 mm, without pulling on the skin and causing great discomfort. It also has two speeds, the slower of which being perfect for removal of very thin hairs or hairs which are difficult to reach. Additionally, the removable head of this epilator is quite easy to clean: just rinse it out with water.

The hairs are gently removed at the root, while the facial cleansing brush gets rid of any skin impurities. The Micro Vibration head also enhances skin appearance. Once again, this epilator is waterproof and safe to use in the bathtub or shower.
