Top-Picks To Give You A Pro-Level Hair Removal At-Home


The One That's Shower-Friendly

Skin Care

Philips Satinelle Advanced Wet & Dry Epilator

INR 4,794 AT Philips

The best thing about this at-home hair removal device? This epilator is designed to work even in the shower, which makes it a covetable beauty product. Position the epilator at a 90-degree angle to your skin for best results and move it in the direction of hair growth to prevent cuts or ingrown hair. Enjoy up to 4 weeks of total hairlessness.

Best For Darker Hair Colours

Skin Care

Remington I-Light Prestige Hair Removal System

INR 48,895 AT Remington

There’s a reason this pick is cult-loved - it can reduce your hair growth significantly and promises permanently hair-free skin in just 3 sittings. When you turn this baby on, it scans your skin to target melanin pigment in the hair to neutralise them. Just so you know, this only works on dark hair. It is more likely to work when there's a major difference between the skin colour and the hair colour. The device is painless but you may have to wax, shave or epilate your hair before you follow it up with this device. 

For Folks With Sensitive Skin


Veet Sensitive Touch Electric Trimmer Expert

INR 1,799 AT Veet

FYI: This device is beloved for painless hair removal and the ease to use it even on sensitive body parts. If you are looking for one device to cater to all your needs, this can be it! From eyebrows to bikini-line and upper lips - it can do it all and it’s perfect for folks with extra sensitive skin. It also has a skin protector to help you get close and personal to the skin without risking nicks.

For Hard-To-Reach Areas

Skin Care

Flawless Finishing Touch Facial Hair Remover Blush

INR 2,375 AT Nykaa

The coolest thing about this device is that it works fast, precisely, and is as sleek as it gets. This cute tiny pick is perfect for reaching more hard-to-reach and concentrated areas (like your brows and upper lip), and it’s really gentle and comfortable to use to get rid of peach fuzz. The built-in LED light makes it easy to see and remove every hair. 

For Permanent Total Hairlessness

Skin Care


INR 8,999 AT Erikka

We get it- not everyone wants to invest their time sitting around with a laser hair removal device. That’s what sets this device apart- it's designed for super quick and painless treatments.  Don’t be fooled by the small purse-friendly size as this device is equipped for hair removal on your arms, legs, and even your bikini line. If you are looking to zap coarse, thick hair on your legs, this can be your next go-to device. It takes just 12 minutes to treat the legs and 40 minutes to treat the whole body and promises total hairlessness in 12 weeks. Seriously, what's not to love?

Wondering how to treat your skin after the hair removal process? We recommend giving it a li'l extra TLC by moisturising it right away and keep the dry skin at bay. A gentle formula like GLOW Iridescent Brightening Body Lotion will do the trick.
