This is my first epilator, and so far it's been great. It pull out even the tiny hairs. The first time I used it on my underarms, it was EXTREMELY painful. However, it's bearable. I know, it is very tempting to zoom past the hairs especially when it's that painful. However, it's best to move very very very slowly. It only hurts when it's pulling hair out, so I wouldn't recommend moving it until it stops hurting, otherwise you'll have to go back to epilate the hairs you missed. I did get like 4 tiny red dots on each armpit after epilating for the first time though. This was probably because my hair was too long (approx 1cm) and the tweezers had to yank it out. It went away by the end of the day. You probably will get ugly red bumps all over where you just epilated because the skin is irritated from just having all it's hairs plucked out. Don't worry! They should be gone in less than half a day.

This epilator is very versatile. I can use it on my underarms, legs, arms, body, and even fingers! I haven't tried it on my upperlip yet since I am still getting used to the pain.
I never used the ice glove, and I doubt I ever will. It doesn't do anything for me but make my skin cold. Any regular ice pack would do. I wished they took the glove out and made the product at least 5 bucks cheaper! Also, don't bother with ther beginning head attachment. It just slows the painful process down. Just use the optimal head.
Make sure your skin is nice and clean, without any lotions or deoderant on. Lotion can damage the tweezers by making it loose it's grip.
Exfoliate well after using to avoid ingrown hairs. I use a shower poof, and that works fine.
For place with folds (like underarms and knees) pull the skin back as tight as possible. You get more hair out like that!
