How to Get a Fabulous Epilator Without Spending Big

Here’s the deal:

You can get an epilator, a really good one, even when you don’t want to spend a lot of money.

These hair removal devices remove the hairs from the root for a silky smooth skin at a reasonable price.

Why Getting an Epilator It’s Totally Worth it?

why epilation

An epilator is a hair removal tool for the long run, no matter if it’s expensive (around $100) or cheap (around $30 up to about $50).

Firstly, there’s the 2-year warranty.

Secondly, you can extend the warranty for another 2 years. It’s a good thing to do for women getting more expensive models.

Thirdly, they are sturdy little things with tiny tweezers that grab many hairs at the same time. It’s almost the same what waxing does for way less money.

There are women who have owned the same epilator for 10 years even. That’s a lot. But as long as it works, why change it? If you clean it properly, everything is perfect.

When it comes to technology, things aren’t evolving as fast as they do in other fields. At the core, you get an ergonomic mostly ovally-shaped device with tiny tweezers.

Sure, more caps have been added as years passed, besides the classic efficiency cap, like the facial cap or the sensitive area cap or the shaving and trimmer heads.

So not only you have an epilator for the legs, bikini area, underarms, etc. but you can also use it on the face. And when it hurts you can use it as a razor. When the hairs are too long, pop in the trimmer head and trim them.


Some models are wet&dry, they can be used in the shower. The hot water opens up the pores, which reduces the pain a little.

An important addition is that nowadays epilators are faster and better at removing tiny hairs.

The Models for a Tight Budget

The basic models, the ones that are really cheap don’t have as many accessories and as many tweezers as the top ones.

But who cares when in the end you can get an amazing epilator even if you are on a tight budget?

1.) Philips HP6401

Philips HP6401 is my top recommendation for women who are looking for something cheap and really good, able to perform great.

It just comes with an efficiency cap, 21 tweezers, and a washable head. That’s it but wait till you see the price.

If you’re interested in the Hp6401, read my extensive review here.

2.) Braun 3170

Next in line, at a small price difference is Braun Silk-Epil 3170.

It has 20 tweezers, an efficiency cap, massage rolls, built-in light, and a cleaning brush.

Read more about it in this review.

Or Maybe You Want a Medium-Price Epilator

If you want to bump up the price a little, the offer becomes even more tantalizing.

1.) Philips Hp6520

Another one from Philips but this time I recommend Philips Hp6520 from Satin Soft series.

It’s the slightly more upgraded version of the Hp6401 with 21 tweezers.

Furthermore, the Hp6520 has a sensitive area cap, a massage attachment, it’s cordless but don’t use it in the shower, and it includes an exfoliation brush.

If you want to know more, here is a review for this Satin Soft model.

2.) Braun 5280

Braun Silk-Epil 5280 is impressive.

It has 40 tweezers, close-grip ones for the removal of tiny hairs, an efficiency cap, massage rollers, pivoting head, a built-in light, a trimmer and a shaver head, and a cooling glove that you can use after epilation.

3.) Emjoi AP-18

However, the ultimate medium-priced epilator is Emjoi AP-18. It cannot be matched.

For the price, you can’t do better considering that it has 72 tweezers, which make it one of the best fastest epilators.
