I’m so excited to be sharing the new, amazing EPILFREE pain-free permanent hair removal treatment with you!
For centuries women have searched for the answer to hair removal that was pain-free, cost-effective and permanent.
Dating as far back as the ancient Egyptians who started many beauty rituals including full body hair removal including their heads.
Without modern interventions, they used tweezers made from seashells and pumice stones OUCH! Later actually starting early forms of beauty treatments such as waxing using sugar-based wax and beeswax.
Let’s face it as women we truly do pay the price and the pain when it comes to beauty. When I first heard about a new organic, natural PAIN-FREE solution that was cost effective and would warrant the same long-lasting permanent results as laser hair removal I was beyond excited… but does it really work?
I was contacted last week by the owner of SOLACE THERAPY in Cape Town to personally attend and review the promotional launch of the new EPILFREE treatment at her beauty salon.
I had heard about EPILFREE from the beauty sphere but wasn’t sure about the results and couldn’t wait to personally try it out and share my review with my readers.
So what is EPILFREE?
EPILFREE is an organic non-chemical solution that is based on very unique scientifically formulated ingredients, proven to naturally and safely slow down and suppress the regrowth process of unwanted hair. Epilfree works in conjunction with your regular wax treatment and is applied after waxing to the waxed area. It’s pain-free and can be used on those sensitive to laser results due to epilepsy or other health conditions with the same results as a laser hair removal treatment. It is also a much more cost-effective way to naturally remove unwanted hair permanently after a course of treatments. The number of treatments will vary from person to person and the size of the area that you are targeting. There are also other factors to consider such as hormonal levels, age and whether you have been waxing before or shaving as the thickness of your hair growth will vary.
Solace Therapy is a beautiful, tranquil beauty salon that captures the very essence of the word “Solace”.
Upon entering I was greeted by such a lovely smile and professionalism as I waited to meet the owner.
The atmosphere was so warm with the lovely scent of aromatherapy that instantly quieted my mind from the outside city hustle and relaxed my senses.
I instantly felt comfortable in my surroundings and was offered a lovely cappuccino while I waited in the beautiful foot bar area. I loved the beautiful natural pastel colors and the subtle nature sounds being played in the background adding the perfect balance.
I was taken to one of the treatment rooms where I met with Ushanta the owner of Solace Therapy. The room was warm and inviting with relaxing aromatherapy oils being burned and the perfect dimmed lights. The color was the room was cool but natural and gentle on the eyes.

We chatted about what the EPILFREE treatment entailed. She was open to any questions or concerns and I felt very comfortable. I explained that I personally do have very fast hair growth caused by sweating from living a very active lifestyle. As a personal fitness trainer and a bikini bodybuilding competitor, I spend a lot of the time exercising. I expressed my concerns about having very sensitive skin and worried about any reactions. As with my normal waxing routine results in terrible skin sensitivity and a fine rash. Ushanta listened to my concerns and gently assured me that the products used during the EPILFREE treatment are completely natural and there are no side effects. I felt reassured and ready to give this treatment a go! Next, my underarm was first prepped for the wax treatment and any deodorant residue was removed. I was also informed about any special precautions. (see below)
Should you want to try out this amazing treatment there are a few things that you need to know:
- For best results from your EPILFREE treatment, it’s vital that you do not arrive with any lotions, powders, makeup, deodorant on your skin as this could block your hair follicles.
- It’s best to arrive with clean skin and have a shower on the day of your treatment to rinse off any soaps, cleansers or residue left on your skin.
- The EPILFREE treatment can be used on all body parts. The preparation is safe and there is no danger of pigmentation or burn, as compared with other treatments.
- The EPILFREE treatment contains active ingredients, therefore pregnant and breastfeeding women should not use it for extra precautions.
- The treatment should also not be used on irritated or damaged skin.
So how does the treatment work?
Step 1: The treatment area is first waxed using an approved EPILFREE wax this is to ensure best results and better application. After the waxing process, the area was checked using a magnifying glass to make sure that the hair was removed from the root and that there were no visible hairs.
Step 2: The EPILFREE Activator serum A consists of antiseptic ingredients that disinfect the treatment area and dilates the hair follicles four times the normal size to allow the Toner serum B to penetrate deep inside the hair follicles. The Activator serum A is sprayed on and rubbed into the treatment area. I personally did not feel any burning sensation or discomfort. I did feel a slight tingling, cool sensation as I could actually feel my pores dilating and more air moving through but no pain at all. A timer was set for 3minutes for the serum to penetrate deep in my hair follicles before the toner could be applied.
STEP 3: The toner serum was lightly massaged into my treatment area. It felt very soothing and was quickly absorbed into my skin not leaving any residue and ensuring that the hair follicles stop hair growth.
Once the toner was applied I was instructed by my beauty therapist to follow the instructions listed below:
- Do not wash or bath the treated area, swim, exercise and prevent perspiring for the next 6hours.
- Do not apply any post-waxing products, lotions, creams, makeup, deodorants or perfumes etc.. to the treated area within the first six hours after your treatment,
If not adhered to the effectiveness of the EPILFREE treatment would be reduced.
My results one week later!
My skin is noticeably smoother and silky to the touch! Leaving no pigmentation, burning or irritation after the treatment was done.
I personally would recommend EPILFREE and will continue with treatments to target unwanted hair growth.
I highly recommend getting the treatment done during the winter months as you will be hair free in time for Summer!
