Just wondering if anyone can recommend a good electric razor? i have looked on-line and so many say they are electric rechargeable but then small print says it needs batteries, i would like a wet/dry one so do not want batteries in it.

I would have thought that most of the wet/dry ones would be battery operated?

The dreaded Amazon should be a good starting point, the product reviews can be quite helpful.

Epilator is brilliant , tiny bit 😳

Definitely epilator - the hairs on my legs gave up after a few years of using one - they just lay down and died!

I have a teeny epilator for vestiges of moustache (I have very dark hair!) and the same thing is happening.

Definitely better than shaving which causes stubbly regrowth.

So, which is the best epilator?

I don't think you could use an electric one in the shower! shock

Mine is battery operated, wet and dry and the battery seems to last for ages (although perhaps I should use it more often).

I found using an epilator agony.

I have a fairly new Remington wet and dry shaver which has batteries. Frankly it's useless. I also have a Phillips Ladyshave and have forgotten how old it is but they don't make them anymore and it's still very effective. If they make rechargeable wet an dry razors for men, they must make a lady's one too.

I have had a Philips Ladyshave for years. Still works perfectly. Probably got it in Boots.

Checked online and apparently still available - wet and dry!

Yes, mine is a Phillips Ladyshave and I haven't had it that long - it replaced one which I'd had for years.

I used to have my legs waxed but can't face the pain these days.
