    I wouldn't use it on your face, it would be very painful and give you ingrowing hairs and a rash. The best thing to use is a depilatory cream for sensitive skin, only leave it on for a few seconds....about 60 should be fine, and wash it off. I have PCOS and I use this method it lasts for about two weeks.

    Hope you find omething that works for you, I can give you the name of the cream I use if you want to try it.

    Safe, yes, But very painful to me. I'd go with home electrolisis for the face. That removes hairs one at a time, so not good for large areas, but it's 100% pain free and PERMANANT! :)

    I don't see why not. They work like tweezers, and you can use tweezers on your face, so an epilator should be safe; it can't cut you.

    i wouldn't adviise it... ones for your face a designed for your face, so they are more gentle and kind to your skin. the legs are tough and can take more rough and tumble than your face can... you could try, but it will prob hurt really really bad, and make your skin sore x
