Hair Removal: Lady ROTOshave from Emjoi Review
I am a bit obsessed with hair removal at the moment. It may not be a glam topic but hair removal is entirely essential if you want to achieve any level of glam, and on that basis, I find it super interesting!
My latest foray into the topic is the Lady ROTOshave from Emjoi. For a start, it is pink, and that I like! But aside from that, here is the low-down:
9 rotating blades
30 rotations per second
Spiral protection windings to prevent nicks and irritation
Water resistant for use in the bath or shower
Battery operated 2 AA (not included)
Can be used to remove hair on any part of the body.
I have to say that I am rather fond of this little pink number! It is super fast to use and leaves skin silky and soft.
I just lather up a bit of shower gel or foam and get shaving, being careful not to apply pressure. Once you have mastered the correct angle (which doesn’t take long – basically as flat to the skin as possible because the blades are on the side rather than the end), hair removal is incredibly simple and fast.
The effect is similar, probably slightly better, to a good traditional wet shave but some some reason I find the re-growth is much less prickly and also a bit slower. It is brilliant for the armpits as you can shave in any direction and really get into the curves and contours of the area.
It is equally good on the bikini line and with the spiral protection windings, you can be sure that you won’t have any nasty accidents. Obviously it is also great on the legs. The only tricky areas are around bony parts such as the ankle, but because it is possible to use the Lady ROTOshave in any direction, it is quite easy to get the hairs with a couple of attempts.
I have no complaints to speak of, apart from perhaps the on/off switch can be a tricky with wet hands, and also the price. It is £49.95 from Boots which is pretty pricey but it is sturdy so I imagine it would last well. It also comes with a replacement roller.
I have had a look on Boots.com but can’t see any replacement rollers sold separately, so can’t tell you how much they cost. Also, I am not sure how often you’d need to change the roller but as it has 9 blades doing the work of one, I’d imagine it would be less frequent that a normal razor.
