Six of the best: Alternatives to shaving

EPILATE

How does it work?
Filled with a hundred mini tweezers, these electronic hair removal devices gently pull out the hair from large surface areas. It's ideal for legs, underneath the arms and even the bikini area.

Advantages
Because epilating pulls the hair follicle out from the root the result leaves treated area feeling smoother for longer compared to shaving. After a few months of use, the grow-back should be less frequent and softer leaving bristly legs to be a thing of the past.
