Epilators Comparison
by Denisa-Alexandra Cinca
Our AssessmentDenisa-Alexandra Cinca reviews epilators, singling out the best five on this page (best epilator, best cheap epilator, etc.). The reviews aren't highly critical, concentrating more on features than performance. In fact, it's not clear that Cinca has tested all of the epilators. Some of the epilators are rated on a five-star scale, while others aren't rated at all. Still, this site is helpful for comparing epilators' features, and figuring out which features are actually useful.
