The Best Epilator for Facial Hair Review – Top 4 List for Nov. 2017
For most women, facial hair growth is a common and natural condition which is best kept secret.
However, when the hair is left unattended it can mar a lady’s facial structure, complexion, and general beauty. Excessive facial hair can demoralize a women’s spirit, self-esteem, and confidence. Fortunately, by selecting the correct epilator it is possible to get rid of facial hair very effectively and relatively painlessly.
There are methods other than epilating that can be used to get rid of facial hair (such as laser hair removal, electrolysis, depilatory creams and of course shaving), however utilizing one of the epilators below will ensure certain benefits such as:
• Effectiveness – These epilators are designed to facilitate maximum removal of facial hair. The tweezers utilized in these devices are very effective at trapping and pulling out even the tiniest and softest hairs. Hair removal via an epilator will last longer than when shaving as the hair is pulled out via the root.
• Speed – Rather than using conventional tweezers where you have to remove the hairs one at a time, epilators glide over the skin surface grabbing all the hairs in their path. This means you save yourself a significant amount of time.
• Comfort – Pulling out hair is generally painful and it does take some getting used to. However, the duration of the pain is reduced significantly as the hairs can be removed very quickly. Over time the hairs become finer and the process becomes less painful.

1. The Emjoi AP-9L Epi Slim
This Emjoi epilator is very well designed – it is small and comfortable to hold making it easy to maneuver over the contours of the face. It is particularly great for facial hair growing in and around; the chin, the upper lip, and the sideburns. It can be used reasonably well for precision hair removal, although if you are specifically after an eyebrow epilator this is probably not the device for you.
Its lightweight and portal making it ideal for the person who travels frequently – it takes 2 AA batteries which are not included.
The head comes packed with 9 tweezers for maximum hair removal. To root out the hair, simply glide the epilator smoothly over the affected surface. However, to avoid pinching, you may have to pull the skin taut in the affected area. This epilator works especially well with soft facial hair, but it also gets rid of coarse hair albeit not as fast.
This device can also be used on the bikini line and underarms.
2. Bellabe Facial Hair Remover
The Bellabe facial hair remover comes with a unique design and functionality, making it very effective.
It is ideal for ladies dealing with soft facial hair growth. This device comes with two handles enclosing a spring between them. The handles are used to control the epilator’s movement while the spring captures and pulls out the hair by the root. To use it, position it over the affected area of the face and bend it slightly. While in this position, turn the handles in either direction, which will enable to spring to capture the facial hair as you move along.
Bending and twisting the epilator does not take much strength, and as such, it is easy and fast to operate. As there are no electronics, the Bellabe is very affordable, cheap to maintain and very portable. For effectiveness, use this epilator on the cheeks, upper lip, and chin. This device is more effective at rooting out soft hair and will struggle with tough and coarse hair.
3. The Remington EP7030
The Groom+Style review team likes this Remington a lot, because it comes with a comprehensive set of features and because it’s 100% waterproof, so it will work without an issue in the shower or bath. It’s also much more than a facial epilator; it works perfectly anywhere on the body including legs, arms, and sensitive spots.
The EP7030 is designed well. It uses 40 sets of tweezers and a flexible, pivoting head to flow with the body’s natural contour and effectively deal with pesky hair many competitors miss. The two speeds on this epilator let you remove both fine and coarse hair at the roots, with the slow setting used for fine hair and the fast speed quickly removing coarse hair. There’s also a narrower precision cap to be used on the face and those touchy “detail” areas, as well as a massaging cap that contains aloe vera that is great for easily-irritated skin.
As we mentioned, the review team loves the fact that this Remington model is a rechargeable wet/dry model and completely waterproof, so you can use it while showering or wherever is most convenient. It’s also ergonomically-designed so it’s very comfortable to use without hand fatigue. There’s even a detail light on the epilator, so you don’t miss those really fine hairs that often “escape.”
4. Remington EP1050CDN Facial Epilation Tweezer System
Here’s another Remington model, and it’s a great choice for a budget epilator. It doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles of the EP7030 we’ve already reviewed, but it still provides excellent personalized hair removal anywhere you want to take it – even in the shower, since it’s a 100% waterproof wet/dry epilator.
The biggest difference between the models is that the EP1050CDN is designed specifically for the face, so it has just six sets of tweezers instead of the much greater number typically used for effective hair removal on the rest of the body. There are other differences as well; this epilator runs on a single AA battery instead of being powered by a rechargeable battery, and it’s substantially less expensive than the EP7030.
When it comes to performance, however, you won’t be disappointed. This Remington’s slow and fast speeds let you remove both fine and coarse hair from the roots, the ergonomic design makes the epilator a pleasure to use, its slim shape lets you tuck it into your purse and take it anywhere, and the head is easily removable for quick cleaning.
First Time Users of Facial Epilators
There are some things to keep in mind if you are using an epilator for the first time – the process will hurt. No matter what you do, there is going to be some pain. Lubrication can make it hurt less, and you can use aloe or witch hazel to soothe the area once you are done.
If you are particularly concerned about the discomfort you could consider a number spray such as the one below.
Your hair will grow in finer as you continue to use the epilator. Over time, this should make epilating less painful. You might also be able to use a hair growth inhibiting cream which will reduce the frequency at which you will need to epilate.
