How to Choose the Perfect Epilator for Your Skin – Like a PRO

how to choose an epilator


It’s not often that you get the privilege of choosing the perfect epilator for your skin. Whether because of budget constraints, or simply not having enough options in front of you, hunting for an epilator is so much easier said than done.

Why? Simple…

What do you honestly know about epilators? Aside from reading about it online, on female magazines, or a Kylie Jenner tweet, you don’t really have much of a grasp (if at all) about this product.

But don’t you worry. It’s definitely not something to be ashamed for. The good news my dear is that you’re here now, and in just under 3 minutes I’ll give you a walkthrough on how to choose the best epilator for your skin like a PRO!

So let’s begin!


TIP #1 Quality First


Ladies… I know you love checking that price tag before you make a purchase. But when it comes to epilators, being cheap will cost you A LOT MORE in the long run.

Because this product deals with your skin, it is highly important that you invest on a good one. So before anything else, check the quality. If you’re buying online, check some epilator reviews online (more on this later) to give you the information you need to make a purchase.

See my personal favorite here.

If you’re buying one in the mall, you can ask the sales personnel tons of questions to know more about the product.

Here’s a PRO Tip: To avoid biased opinions about these products, ask two different sales personnel about two different brands. You’ll hear both the PROs and CONs of these products from a different point of view. You will then be able to get a better, and more precise idea about the quality of these epilators.


TIP #2 Listen to the Crowd


Just like how you would check restaurant reviews on Yelp, choosing the perfect epilator would be a much smoother experience if you check reviews online.

As they say, experience is the best teacher. And since you obviously can’t use all the epilators in the market one by one, your best bet is to read reviews online so you can analyze and compare.

These reviewers will tell it to you straight from their experience. So whether it turned out for the good or bad, you’ll know.

Check out this epilator’s 1,000+ positive reviews and counting!

The best thing you can do here is to follow the crowd. Go for the ones with the most positive reviews. Pick out your top 3 choices and then further narrow it down until you find the best one.

And lastly…


TIP #3 Know Which Part to Epilate


Perhaps the most important tip for today – you have to know which body part you actually want to epilate.

You can’t just go around buying epilators like crazy. You need to know if it is compatible with your skin, or rather, the body part you want to use it on.

Most women use an epilator for their legs. So if that’s your main purpose, you’re pretty much safe to go with majority of the epilators in the market.

But if you want to use it for harder to reach areas like your bikini area and underarms, you’re better off purchasing a small epilator. This allows you to maximum flexibility and mobility as you pluck all the hair away.

A common mistake by women is that they buy epilators without really thinking about where to use it. So make sure you don’t commit the same mistake and start taking down notes!




With these 3 tips, you’re now a better decision maker when it comes to choosing an epilator for your skin. Just make sure to keep these in mind when you’re ready to buy one!
