I don't know why on earth will someone epilate when you can use laser, removal cream or even waxing.

Laser isn't great for all skin types and can be expensive. Removal creams can irritate (on my hair it doesn't work unless I leave it on longer, by which time my skin would be burnt off) but also there are ongoing costs, and the hairs grow back quicker because they are not uprooted. I prefer the epilator as I love the smoothness because the hairs come out by the root. I like the quickness (if you keep it up, you can just epilate for 10 mins a week or less). I like the portability and the lack of ongoing costs. Waxing would be ok but I find it a little messy, more expensive in the long term, and a little awkward compared with epilating. I'm sure there will be loads who disagree, but everyone's preferences will be different
I love an epilator personally!

but isn't the most painful method?

When I first did it, it hurt so much, but surprisingly the 2nd time, the pain was tolerable, and by the next time I barely noticed it. It is easier if keeping it up though. Sometimes if I don't bother for 6 weeks and then have to 'catch up' on my epilating routine then it hurts, but not as much as the first time. In those cases I usually just do a really quick shave and then epilate a week later and try and keep it up. By doing it every couple of weeks for 10 mins, it doesn't hurt at all (for me, or the very few people I've talked to about it) as there aren't so many hairs to pull out at one then. I'm at the stage now that I find I can do arms and legs without pain, with pits tolerable but with gritted teeth! I also have hardly any leg hair on the bottom half of my legs (probably about 30-40% of what I used to have) because of having epilated for years. I think waxing would have had the same effect over the same time but I don't like doing that at home and don't have the money to pay someone else.
This is a bargain

Would this work for me?
