Emjoi my ass. The true extent of Pain.

Filed under: My Life, Self Pity — happychick @ 6.38p07

Ah, the vanity of it all. While on holiday, I bought one of these. I have never felt anything like it. The pain is, quite literally, indescribable. It acts much like a rotary hoe, the tiny little tweezers ripping out each hair on your leg individually, in the most unfriendly fashion.

Sigh. If I weren’t such a vain, beauty- obsessed little girl, I would’ve thought twice before investing in such a device. But sadly I am a vain, beauty-obsessed little girl, and hence, I bought it without question.

You see, on the box, they have a lovely long, brown pair of legs, all tanned and silky smooth. They don’t, however, mention the fact that as the hair is ripped out, a tiny red dot appears in its place and remains there, inflamed and tender, for 24 hours. They don’t show you that your legs are not silky smooth, that they feel just like a day-old shave. But mostly of all, they don’t mention the pain. You see, prior to this little hair-removal investment, I considered myself to have a pretty high pain tolerence. I can suffer waxing. I can endure emotional torure. I kinda think of myself as a bit of a tank. I was wrong.

I don’t suppose you can really imagine the throbbing sensation, the real torture of it all. You just have to experience it for yourself. That said, I once heard a person say “Beauty before comfort”, and hence, I am going to post this, then go for a little bit of Emjoi-ness.



  1. Reminds me of the Epilady of a few years back. Now I really could not give a shit less if I miss a hair or two when I shave my pegs every few days. And THAT my dear, is the beauty of old age. 😀

  2. Doesn’t “vete” or some other shitty brand have a bladeless razor thing with no pain and it gets rid of all the hair and stuff. And then there’s “Nair” which, if I ever feel like getting smooth between the legs will probably be my first choice.
