Epilators are great! Your legs will be stubble free but don't expect this to last for weeks as it depends when in the hair-growing cycle you epilate them - some hairs will grow back quicker than others. I find the best way to use an epilator is to do my legs once a week (in summer anyway), when about a third of the hairs will have grown back - it's quick to do & easier & less painful than waiting several weeks and spending 20 minutes or so plucking out all the hairs. I have a Phillips at the moment but Braun is also a good make. I also use my epilator on my underarms, & bikini line (carefully!)

I do my legs and underarms on a 7-10 day basis.

I've got a Braun silk epil.

Get your legs waxed before you use it for the first time, and then you can do a bit at a time when not all the hair have come through. Do it every 3 days to start with, and then you get used to it, and can stretch out to 7 days.

Underarms aren't that painful, but are tricky
