Purchased today. The epilator works...my face is smooth and hair free, except for the very very short peach fuzz. This is good though because it looks natural. As for pain it hurt some... on a scale of 1-10, it was a 3 except for the lip area and the longer sideburn hairs. In this area it is 8...only for about 5-6 seconds then the skin seems to numb. My face is quite hairy by the sideburn area. the rest is peach fuzz that i usually would trim with a mini trimmer..i would do this weekly. i think i will use this unit quite often at first to keep smooth and lessen discomfort and possibly the redness. (that is inevitable when you are pulling out your hair!) the redness cleared and i was back to my pale self in about 3 hours. I will continue to use and update the review in a few months if the thing ends up being garbage...for now. the 85.00 was completely worth it.
I would recommend this to a friend!

This epilator worked pretty well for about a year and a half. Then one day it just completely went dead even with a brand new battery. It's far too expensive to have to replace every year or two. Otherwise I would have recommended it. Very disappointed.
