remington smooth and silky epilator

Recently I was sent an amazing box from Remington filled with products to help out with a pain free epilating experience. Firstly, The Breakfast Scrub by Soap and Glory, which just happens to already be my favourite body scrub, smells of banana and oat deliciousness and does a fantastic job at buffing away dead skin cells. Once my legs are buffed and scrubbed I move onto the Nivea Water Lily Shower Gel, this has a beautifully delicate feminine scent but is also combined with oil pearls to give skin back moisture. 

Out of the shower and an hour or so after my skin is ready for hair removal I get started with the epilating. I had already tried this method of hair removal a few years ago and after training as a beauty therapist decided waxing would be the better option for me but now I'm turning back on that idea as waxing can be messy and a nuisance. The Remington Smooth & Silky epilator is surprisingly compact and light-weight, completely different to the clunky epilator that I owned in the past. There is no doubt that epilating is painful but in my opinion it's well worth getting used to as I find it the best method of hair removal for long-lasting results, it usually takes around two weeks until the hair starts to grow back which is ideal for a holiday. If you get fed up of constantly shaving your legs then do consider trying out epilating, lighting a scented candle really helps to ease the discomfort too, the Neom Relax candle fills the room with a beautiful lavender scent.

Once any redness has gone down on my skin it's time to moisturise which is where I use the Korres Fig Body Butter, another great smelling product which is thick and luxurious and leaves my skin feeling nourished and soft.


  1. I keep seeing this Korres Fig Body Butter everywhere, it sounds really nice :) I have an epilator, this has reminded me to put it to use again.

  2. I've always been scared of using an epilator but this one looks good, not too scary x x


  3. This looks amazing! And not a bad price xo


  4. Ive been wanting to try an epilator for a while, just the pain part bothers me! Im sure after time though, your body gets used to it and its a doddle! Just have to grin and bear it for a bit and then its worthwhile in the end for the results!

  5. Not bad for the price, this could be the one that tempts me into using an epilator.

  6. I tried epilating my legs before and it killed me! honestly it hurt so bad, maybe i should try again x

  7. Hi don't like the pain of Epilators, that's why I went for home laser hair removal system. Getting great results and is creating permanent hair lose.

  8. Great little epilator! Only recently had to replace it but I do miss it, so comfortable, easy to use and makes epilating so easy! Affordable too, great review and love the blog :)

  9. I have Remington Smooth and Silky Epilator.It's like a little box of magical robotic tweezers that yank out unwanted body hair fast. Epiliated areas take a few weeks to grow back for me, compared to a few days if I just shave. My previous experiements with waxing have all left me sore, sticky, and still hairy, so I can't compare the epiliator to a successful wax.

    Sure, it hurts a bit (you're yanking out a bunch of hair all at once; what else do you expect?), but on areas where you can contort yourself to keep the skin taut, it's really not so bad. Additionally, the vibration from the little motor inside seems to have some kind of soothing/numbing effect (or maybe that's just endorphins).

    It's easy to clean with the included brush thingy, which is small and easy to lose and can be replaced with a dollar-store toothbrush. I'd recommend making sure any area you use it on is clean and dry -- I've owned the damn thing for a year now and still haven't figured out how to get the spinny head bit out for any cleaning that'd require immersing it in a liquid. Oh yeah, and listen to the manual when it says which of the 2 speeds to use on which areas -- the faster speed actually tends to hurt less, so use it where you can.
