I am an American guy who came to Seoul, South Korea and loved the country and decided to stay to start Seoul Brow, the first Eyebrow Threading company in South Korea

The art of eyebrow threading has been practiced in ancient cultures like India, Pakistan, and Iran for many centuries by young and old females of the family who learn this unique art form.

We have found multiple pictures of the before and after pictures of people who have had their eyebrows threaded or trimmed. Notice the difference in how they look after the session

The practice of eyebrow threading is hygenic and safe. The cotton used is 100% natural cotton so it will be irritating the skin

Like most eyebrow threading locations, we also offer the service of doing henna tattoos in not only the traditional red color dye, but also more fun blue and green coloring.

So where else around the world can you get eyebrow threading done if you are outside of the country and looking for a location? Find out Here!

So what is eyebrow threading? How is it done and is it painful?

Where To Get The Amazon Kindle In Seoul South Korea

Where To Get The Amazon Kindle In Seoul South Korea

Amazon Kindle In Seoul South KoreaSomeone recently asked me a question which left me actually a little puzzled. It was over the issue of finding the E-Reader sold by Amazon called the Kindle. Obviously their question was “Where can I get the Kindle in South Korea?” Since I have been living in Seoul, or South Korea in general for over a year now, they expected that I would be sort of some type of expert on South Korea and the shopping their.

This friend had been searching everywhere to find the device, including the COEX Mall, the Yongsan Electronics Market, and a few other places but they still could not find one place which carried the E-Reader Tablet.

After doing some searching I found out that apparently the country of South Korea does NOT carry the Kindle reader. It seemed that when Amazon first came out with the Kindle, the original models, Korea did import those models. Now, the only way that you can get the Kindle is to take a trip out of the country. On my recent trip to Ozaka, Japan I did find that the Kindle can be found in many stores.

However, once Samsung, the multinational conglomerate corporation decided to get into the tablet market, they started to build cheap tablets and edged the Tablet out of the Korean market due to price from the tariffs the Korean government had put on. The newest tablets that are coming out from Samsung are the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 & the Galaxy Tab 2. These tablet devices are not as small or thin as a Kindle but comparing the devices in weight, they both are very light.

So the best (and maybe only) way to get the Kindle when you are in South Korea is to buy it off of the Amazon website.

Using High Frequency Pulse Massagers For Pain Relief After Using Epilators For Hair Removal

Using High Frequency Pulse Massagers For Pain Relief After Using Epilators For Hair Removal

Pulse Massagers For Pain ReliefThere are actually quite a few common problems which come from using epilators or almost any type of device that promises to remove the hair from your skin by pulling it out by the roots. Some of the most commonly cited problems are…

Ingrown Hair – When you are trying to pull out the hair and run the edge of the epilator head over the skin surface, some of the hairs that were just lying down or to the side would be pushed in the wrong direction, not upwards but downwards. The result is that

Hair Stubbles – The other problem with the way that the hairs are removed by the epilators is that the ceramic or metal discs are spinning too fast. The speed at which the tweezer heads are spinning means that instead of getting a really good grip at the base of the hair and pulling it completely out by the root, it grabs just the tip of the stem of the hair and manages to break it in half. The result is that there are a lot of short hair stubble that is not removed.

Skin Bumps – We are talking about the fact that if you use the epilator for too much, like with tweezers, electric shavers, etc. is that what happens is that it results in the skin develop red bumps.

While all of these annoyances are problems, what is definitely the biggest complaint people have with using epilators (or eyebrow threading in general) is the fact that they are just so painful. The pain is often so bad that the person who is getting the hair removal is in so much pain that they start crying and can’t continue any further. That is the biggest problem, the pain.

So what can be done to make the pain not as severe as it really is? Here are a few things that you can do to make the pain become slightly more bearable.

Doing the hair removal in wet situations. When you put the head of either the epilator or electric shaver on your skin you want to add a little bit of liquid to lubricate the skin. Water, foam, lather, aloe vera lotion, tea tree lotion, etc. all would work in decreasing the pain and reduce the swelling.

The other way is to use a type of high frequency pulse massager for pain relief which vibrates very quickly. This feature where you have some type of plastic finger to rub very fast on the surface of the skin to decrease the amount of pain in the area of skin having the hari pulled out is very common. It is sort of similar to how acupuncture needles and acupuncture pens work. You use a very small amount of vibrational energy and waves to massage the area. The nerve ending which were attached to the hair root are going to be pulled apart from the hair follicle. They will send the electrical signal telling the brain that there is pain but it will be slightly disrupted.

Review Of Remington i-LIGHT Pro Intense Pulsed Light IPL Hair Removal System

Review Of Remington i-LIGHT Pro Intense Pulsed Light IPL Hair Removal System

Review Of Remington i-LIGHT Pro Intense Pulsed Light IPL Hair Removal SystemThe actual name for this laser hair removal device is the i-Light Pro. It is designed and sold by the company Remington. Remington is also well known for selling it really great models of epilators which we have already reviewed multiple times. In fact, the company Remington claims that they are the “nations’s #1 personal grooming company” on the i-Light Pro’s Amazon product page. This is a big claim but I am personally aware that Remington is a company that focuses mainly on selling products dealing with personal grooming like hair removal, hair trimming, and similar avenues of cosmetic products. From looking at the various epilator models, I would say that this device is probably not a complete scam product. It must have at least some ounce of credibility over the claims it makes about the i-Light Pro Hair Removal System.

This is a hair removal system or hair removal device. It uses this new form of technology called ProPulse Technology. The ProPulse technology is supposed to be proprietary, which means that the idea was started by someone else, and they are trying to protect the new idea by filing a patent to protect their intellectual property’s rights. While I am not very familiar with most types of light therapy devices or pulsing technologies, I do understand a little bit of of physics from my college classes. It seems that the technology is based on the device sending some type of light wave that is emitted in a pulsating fashion. The fact that the word “intense” is added before the term pulsed light suggest that the light does have a high intensity.

From basic physics principles, we note that all light are basically made of Electricity & Magnetic Fields and Waves. Technology all phenomena in terms of atoms can be described in terms of particles and waves. However, for our situations, we are going to describe the light in this context as a type of wave. It is noted that light just consist of packets of light energy known as Photons.

Getting back to the subject of the type of energy or pulsed light that this device emits, it is not exactly laser that this device emits, but a type of high intensity or strong light. That light is strong. I would then guess that what it does is trying to mimic the similar type of phenomena exhibited by those large, expensive laser hair removal machines that are found on so many dermatologist clinics. However, laser is actually light rays that are focused into one place.

From the Wikipedia article on laser, the actual name for laser is an acronym. The word represents the term L.A.S.E.R. Those letters are the first letters for the 5 word term “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation”. From the term it seems to suggest that the normal type of light rays which are usually scattered in all directions, are concentrated together. The results of having all that light concentrated in one space is to have the intensity of the light become Amplified.

In the product description of the i-LIGHT PRO there is no talk about the fact that the ProPulse Technology has the light focused and concentrated into one spot. That means then the light being admitted by the device is NOT a laser. It is just a high intensity light wave. The wave is emitted in a regular, repeating pattern that is known as pulsing.

So that is a little bit on the background and the scientific theory on why this laser hair removal device would even work. We now look at the different types of features it has.

The Features

  • Skin Tone Sensor – This is the first feature that this Intens Pulsed Light Hair Removal device has. It is some type of sensor which can detect what type of tone or shading your skin is under. Apparently this device can not be used by people who have skins who are too dark. Once the skin goes over a certain shading and becomes too dark, the sensors tells you that it can’t work on your skin color type. Based on scientific reasoning I would guess that it works by checking how much light is reflected back from an emitted light. Black color and the surfaces which have black light actually completely reflect all of the lights that reaches the surface back to it. White color is the type of color which actually absorbs all the light rays of all the different colors and wavelengths. Thus, if the sensor after shining a light detects that too much of the light it just emitted was reflected back, it will tell you that you can’t use the device.
  • Skin Contact Sensors -This sensor I would assume tell you that the emitted pulsing light did manage to get beneath the skin layer and actually have some type of effect on the hair root or hair follicle. The sellers of the device claim that somehow the light that is emitted is at a certain wavelength which allows it to disrupt the follicles of the hair and cause the hairs to not grow back.
  • 5 Energy Levels
  • Corded Power – This feature just means that the device has no battery power. You must always have the device plugged into the wall. If you unplug the AC Adapter power cord the entire electrical device shuts down. There is not charged battery as a 2nd type of power source.

 

 

Review Of Remington EP6010CDN Epilator

Review Of Remington EP6010CDN Epilator

Review Of Remington EP6010CDN EpilatorThis model is the Remington EP6010CDN Epilator. It seems to be exactly the same as the EP6010 which we had reviewed before Here. What we want to see is whether this current model, the EP6010CDN, is any different from the EP6010. We will compare the features of both models, look at the design power source, and more to see which one is slightly better than the other one.

Product Specifications

My Review

When we originally did the review on the Remington EP6010 Epilator, we went by that model really quickly. If we checked the actual model from the Remington website, the features that are given are the same for this model and the other model without the suffix of “CDN” attached.

There are just a few features at most with this model’s design so we will go over them quickly.

  • This model has 42 tweezer heads
  • This model can not be used cordless. You will always need to have it plugged into the wall with the power cord
  • This model has 2 speeds, which you can change between.
  • The head is curved for a more thorough epilation session.

That is all that this model consists of, besides maybe the product dimensions, weight, and color. Of course those design parameters are not as important as the essential parts.

So would we recommend this model, the Remington EP6010CDN, to the reader?

 

We did state in the other reviews from looking at other reviews that it was a reasonably good model to choose. From the amazon product page, this model did get some very good reviews and ratings on it. Out of the 40+ current reviews, its overall rating is 7/10. It does have some issues, just like the EP6010.

These are the most common issues

  • While it does seem to remove hair, it more often breaks the hair in two than actually pull the hair out by the root
  • It doesn’t get all the hairs in a skin region
  • It is very slow in actually removing the hair
  • You can’t use this device on the facial hairs or it will cause major skin irritation problems.

We know now that the EP6010CDN model and the EP6010 are the exact same model. While we have been listing all of the problems the people who wrote for this product page have stated, we would still recommend it. Overall, the ratings for this device and the reviews do show that it can pull hairs out by their roots for the majority of the people who buy it and use it. This is just an average to good quality epilator to try out.

In terms of price, this model is very cheaper compared to others. It is currently listed at around $25 from Amazon. When you buy it you get a 2 year warranty on it so there is some type of insurance or protection over it if you get it and it has a built in manufacturing problem. Even if you don’t like it there is always the added protection of the warranty in case it breaks and the head no longer removes hair.

Emjoi Optimax Epilator Review

Emjoi Optimax Epilator Review

Emjoi Optimax Epilator ReviewThe Emjoi Optima AP-98R Epilator is probably one of the less popular models sold by Emjoi. Based on the design and features of this specific model I am not sure if it is really all that unique or different than the other models we have already seen. When we looked at the way the spinning discs are aligned next to each other, we felt that the spacing of the tweezer heads might mean that there would an increase in the incidence of the skin being pinched and nicked. However, it is important that we at least take the time to go over the the various features over to see what it offers.

Product Specifications

  • 30 Tweezers
  • Rechargeable
  • Designed for women
  • Used on the Face and Body
  • Tweezes

My Review

The first thing that is noted about this model is that number of tweezer head that it has. This one has a total of 30 tweezers, which is slightly less than the usual number of 36. The less tweezers might mean that the area you are trying to remove hairs from would require a longer amount of time to get clean and smooth.

The tweezers are actually a form known as dual opposable tweezers. The Dual opposed tweezers we would assume means that there are two spinning discs stacks. The discs stacks are not pulling in the same direction. One is going in the clock-wise direction and the other cylindrical stack is spinning in the counter-clock wise direction. The opposable direction nature means that hairs that are growing in either direction are being removed efficiently.

The 2nd feature is that the epilator has a speed adjustable feature. There is two speeds you can set it to, the low and the high. The high speed is supposed to be able to do 72,000 rotations per minutes. The low speed is claimed to go as high as 57,000 rotations a minute. These RMPS are some of the highest that we have seen. However we already know that having a faster spinning rate does not mean that it will be able to remove the hair effectively. What often happens more often is that the higher speeds results in the hairs being ripped apart, snapping the hair strand instead of grabbing it by the root and pulling the hair out by the roots. So high RPM means that you are more likely to get stubbles than the complete removal of the hair.

The design of the contours of the epilator head means that it will keep the skin area that is being epilated on taut. The skin beeing kept taut is to prevent pain and pinching by the tweezer heads.

There are these hair guides which get the short hairs to lift up and get caught in the spaces between the tweezers. After you finish removing the hairs in one region, they claim that the region is supposed to stay hair free for upwards of 4-6 weeks.

If you plan to use this model on your face you want to use the attachment only on one side. It would work on the upper lip, the chin. As for the other areas of the body, it would work on the bikini line area, the legs, and the underarm hairs.

As for the power, this model can be cordless. This means that you don’t have to always plug it in to turn on the device. There is a rechargeable battery inside.

When you buy the epilator  you get the entire kit. This kit includes the epilator device, the cleaning brush, the owner’s instructional booklet, and the carrying case.

So what do people who have already bought the Optimax think of it?

This may be one of the first models sold by Emjoi where there have been a substantial number of complaints about it. In terms of numbers, there are not a lot of people who have left a review. Of those reviews, some issues were brought up. These include the fact that this model seems to not work on facial hair removal. It is painful and the batteries seem to die out very quickly. It doesn’t even remove the hairs on the legs very effectively.

I would not recommend this model because of the number of complaints about it. However it one is very insistent on trying out the model, then click on the link below.
