We put our bodies on the line to bring you the top three epilator reviews for 2016. It wasn’t easy; sometimes it was outright painful, but after all the swelling went down we were able to pick the 3 best epilators. You may be surprised with our choices! Before we get to the results, lets cover the very basics… (skip to reviews)
What is an epilator?
An epilator is a hair removal device that functions similar to waxing or tweezing. Yes, this means it pulls your hairs out by the root. Now before you get frightened off, it’s not nearly as bad as it sounds and after using one a couple times you won’t even blink twice. If you are new to the world of epilators check out our basic information page to see why women and men alike are embracing this technology.
We have tested and compared the top models on the market. There are multiple cost tiers of epilators available so we have tried to be fair and even balanced in our assessments, however some more expensive models may out perform some cheaper models yet still be ranked lower due to the “bang for the buck” aspect of the lower priced models…
Now without further ado, lets get to the reviews.
Being one of the lowest priced epilators we reviewed we expected that there would be missing functionality or poor performance, however we were pleasantly surprised to find out that this model compared quite well to its higher-priced counterparts.The biggest downfall we found with this particular device is the fact that it is corded, and who likes cords in the wireless age?!Beyond the cord, epilating was a bit more painful than other models and we would not recommend it if you are a first timer (unless you have an affinity to pain).

The two speed Satinelle epilator by Philips is about as affordable as you can find, however it is very basic in design with no battery, dry use only and only 21 discs, however it is built solidly and is gender neutral which makes it popular with menSimilar to other bargain priced models this one is quite painful compared to other higher priced devices. If you are first getting started with epilating this is probably not the one for you since you will probably never try it again after the first time. read more
This is another bargain priced model that does not disappoint. While not as impressive as higher priced models it boasts many of the features of the higher priced competitors such as a built-in rechargeable battery for cordeless operation, wet and dry use, and 3 additional attachment heads.The downside of the Fyola epilator is that, like others that are low priced, it is quite a bit more painful than the more expensive models. If you are looking for your first device you may want to continue your search for something that is not as painful.Read our full review below. read more
