OW.. so, my fiancee purchased the Braun Epil X'elle epilator for me as one of my early birthday gifts (bless his heart!) and I was really excited because I read many good reviews on this product as it's supposed to be the best epilator on the market today. I mainly want to use this for the chin area since I have somewhat of a beard that I've been growing due to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I read a few people's reviews who said that using an epilator is worse than getting a tattoo! I tried the X'elle on my leg and I couldn't bear the pain of it. I tried so hard. I did half of my lower leg and I couldn't take it anymore and had to stop. I am kinda bummed because I just want to see how long my legs will be hairless after epilation. Grrr.. I wish I could just grit my teeth and take the pain, but I seriously can't! Anyone have tips on how I can do this with less pain?
