When it comes to epilators (or intimate hair-removal products), it would seem that double spin discs are so last year. It's all about triple spin discs now, that move vertically and horizontally to ensure hairs are gripped from all directions. If it makes the process a lot quicker and less painful, which apparently Panasonic's Wet and Dry Epilator does, then everybody is happy.
Could this actually mean the end of wincing and gripping the nearest object to alleviate the shocking pain invading your leg? Let's take a look at what Panasonic is telling us and try and fish out what's fact and what sounds like marketing spiel.
This device hasn't been given the name Wet and Dry Epilator for effect, it can actually be used on dry legs or when you're in the bath or shower. Apparently, skin soaked in warm water makes removing hair easy and pain free because your pores open up and skin becomes softer.
Adding to the easiness element of the epilator is the triple spin discs, which have been designed to glide quickly and smoothly over awkward areas like the knees and elbows. Combine this with skin protectors around each disc and your skin should be left feeling smooth and well looked after.
Panasonic's self-titled breakthrough technology promises to say goodbye to red patches and skin irritation, promising silky smooth legs, slower re-growth and less frequent hair removal. The Wet and Dry Epilator is washable, rechargeable and cordless. Moreover, it comes with an exchangeable shaving head, so that you have better access to difficult-to-reach zones.
Unfortunately, the only thing that Panasonic doesn't mention is the price tag for their “revolutionary” epilator. In this case, if you are anxious to see the results of the Triple Spin Discs, you will have to contact the manufacturer directly.
