Chandler Bing

Probably the only time I hated Chandler Bing. I mean, is there something that’s not great about baths or showers? Showers set the best platform to help you in everything from taking life-altering decisions to making you sound like a rock star/opera diva. And since it is the place where you get rid of all the filth, it makes perfect sense to get rid of all that unwanted hair in the shower, right? And what is a better way to remove hair than using some of the best wet and dry epilators in the market?

Now, there are hundreds of wet dry epilators out there and it can be a task to choose the best wet and dry epilator for you. Luckily, we’ve done some experimentation ourselves and found some good ones in our wet dry epilator review below.

Which Are The Best Wet Dry Epilators?

There are some epilators designed specifically for some body parts. Here we have considered only the wet/dry epilators that can be used over the whole body. These are listed below.

1) Braun Series 9-890 Silk-Epil Sensosmart Epilator With Shaver And Face / Bikini Trimmer

Braun comes out with some of the best epilator devices in the market. And this is no different with the Sensosmart Wet/Dry Epilator from Braun. Claiming itself to be the world’s first “smart epilator“, the Braun Sensosmart has a sensor which guides your epilation, ensuring the right amount of pressure is applied when you are epilating. If you apply too much pressure when using your wet and dry epilator, a red light shows up and prompts you to decrease the pressure with which you are epilating.

Features of Braun Sensosmart Dry & Wet Epilator For Women

  • Sensosmart Smartlight Technology – A sensor guides your epilation, and signals you when you are applying too much pressure while epilating.
  • Wet & Dry Cordless Epilator – Helps you epilate in your shower, making the epilation process simpler, faster and much less painful.
  • MicroGrip Tweezer – Remove extremely short hair (0.5mm) effectively.
  • Pivoting Head – The pivoting head helps remove hair from difficult to reach areas like your underarms.
  • Shaver Head – Comes with a shaver attachment.
  • Trimmer Head – Great for trimming your hair if it’s too long for epilation.
  • Wide Epilation Head – Grabs more hair while epilating, speeding up the process.
  • Special Attachments – Comes with a facial cap, skin contact cap and face trimmer for sensitive areas

This Philips wet and dry epilator is one of the best wet dry epilators available in the market today. It is a powerful device that comes with 32 tweezers. It works well and pulls out most of the hairs in the first go. This epilator comes with a set of 6 additional accessories including a delicate area cap, facial cap, efficiency cap, shaver head, trimming comb and storage pouch. It also comes with a built-in smart light.

Features of Philips Satinelle Advanced Wet And Dry Epilator For Women –

  • Special Caps For Different Body Parts – This epilator comes with special heads for operating on various body parts. The efficiency cap is suited for epilation on your arms and legs. Facial cap, well you can guess where that can be used. Delicate area cap is perfect for the bikini line and other sensitive areas.
  • Pivoting Head -The pivoting head helps in epilating curved areas (such as your knees) more efficiently.
  • Extra Wide Epilation Head – The head grabs more hairs in the first pass, without pulling the sensitive skin.
  • Wet And Dry Cordless Epilator – This is a wet and dry cordless epilator, which is preferred as it is more convenient while epilating. Just make sure to charge it beforehand. And since this is a wet and dry epilator, you can use it in the shower without any problem.
  • Smart Light – The Philips Satinelle Wet Dry epilator consists of a built-in smart light (yay!) which improves the visibility.
  • Shaver Cap – The shaver cap turns this device into a fully functional shaver.
  • Trimmer Cap – Use this to trim your hair before epilating.
  • Massage Cap – This Philips wet/dry epilator also comes with an in-use massage cap, which reduces the pain involved in epilating.
  • Multi-Speed Operation – Another important feature of this Philips wet/dry epilator is the presence of 2-speed settings for thicker and thinner hairs. The slower speed is also advantageous while epilating sensitive regions such as bikini line and face.

Philips has also released a new model called the Philips Satinelle Prestige Wet and Dry Epilator. Even though it has more number of accessories, I prefer the advanced one, simply because it is more productive and cost-effective.

There are 18 sets of tweezers on this head – 9 on each side in sets of 3. Using this epilator with this attachment definitely reduces the pain involved in the epilation process to a visible degree. If you are looking for an epilator that causes the least amount of pain, this is the one.
  • Built-In Lights – The built-in lights, like with the Philips and Braun epilators, improves visibility and helps finding fine hairs.
  • Pedicure Buffer Attachment – It also comes with a pedicure buffer attachment which removes dry, rough skin from the feet. And it might seem like an extra no-good feature, but it isn’t! It actually works pretty well and smoothens the skin.

5) Panasonic ES-EL9A-S Cordless Shaver & Wet/Dry Epilator

While I am not a fan of the shape of the handle of the ES-EL9A-S, it does come with a wonderful assortment of attachments that help with the epilation process. And being a Panasonic epilator, there are no qualms on it’s performance when it comes to removing hair efficiently.

I have also added a few commonly asked questions regarding wet and dry epilators below –

Is it better to Epilate wet or dry?

Epilating wet is better, since it is a lot less painful. Wet dry epilators allow you to epilate in the shower, since these devices are waterproof.

What is a wet and dry epilator?

A wet and dry epilator is a waterproof device, that allows you to epilate in the shower.

Should you moisturize before epilating?

We suggest using a non-comedogenic moisturizer after you epilate to help soothe the freshly epilated skin.

Can you use epilator on pubic hair?

Yes, and in fact, we recommend you do! Go for a wet dry shaver though, since it makes the process a lot less painful.

Which is the best wet dry epilator?

We recommend the Braun series epilators, but there are equally good epilators, all of which are listed in this wet dry epilator review.

  1. I thoroughly agree with you choosing the Philips Satinelle as one of the best wet and dry epilators. I have used it for years, and it removes extremely fine hair even in the shower.

  2. I have the Panasonic ES-ED90 epilator; wonderful wet dry epilator and has definitely reduce epilation pain by a huge margin.

  3. It is always recommended to go for wet and dry epilators, and not bother with any other type of epilator. Showering during hair removal results in much much less epilator pain.

  4. Best I have ever used is the Braun epilator, i recommend it.

  5. It is pretty hard to choose one among the above. All of these three are excellent wet and dry epilators. My sister and me own the Braun and Philips one mentioned above, and both are perfect.

  6. I got myself the Braun skinspa, and I am loving it. Also a word of advice to newbies. Opt for a wet dry epilator always.
