I don't know if it is just b/c I am a freak, but my leg and arm hair needs to be done sooner than the directions say.
I've pinched myself too...It sucks! I would never have thought of using an electric razor if the epilator that I got (braun silk epil) hadn't come with a razor head attachment.
Sometimes, the armpit hair stays away for almost two months; other times I have some regrowth after two weeks. Supposedly if you epilate every day for a week, you end up with really smooth skin for a long time. I haven't tried it yet though, and I wouldn't really need to do that on my armpits anyhow...more like my legs.
Right now, I have about 1/4" of regrowth on my armpits. I could have epilated days ago but the hair has turned so baby fine you can barely see it, so I haven't bothered. And I have very dark, coarse hair.
A couple months ago, I did try to do my belly because it got hairier, but I just got a rash from doing it. Plus it hurt really bad.
I know it's really silly, but I love walking by the razor aisle in the store and never having to buy anything from it anymore. I know the epilator uses electricity, but I kind of feel like I'm able to accommodate my vanity while still being less wasteful by not using disposible razors, waxes, shaving cream....
