Product Description

  • Fast, Smooth Action with 90degree Pivoting Interchangeable Head 32mm width
  • Wet / Dry / Includes Various Heads (Shaver, Trimmer, Bikini, etc…)
  • 1hr Charge / 30 Min Use / Pouch / Cleaning Brush/ Build in LED


9 Piece Accessory Kit included
Includes: Epilation head for legs/arms, gently gap, epilation head for under arms/bikini-line, shaver head, trimmer head, bikini comb, foot-care stone, pouch, cleaning brush


30% Wider Head
Compared to conventional models, the 32.4mm wide head covers an area that is 30% wider and removes more hair in one stroke, for quicker epilation.  


Double Discs for Double Efficiency
The Double Discs ensure that leftover hair is caught, as the second disc catches hair missed by the first disc. The tweezers that catch the hair now number 60 in total, an evolutionary leap in epilation, catching more hair in a single stroke.


Catches Hair too short for waxing
The two tweezer tips that grip the hair align perfectly, so that even hair as short as 0.5mm which would not be removed by wax treatments, gets gripped and removed from the root completely


90⁰ Pivoting head fits every curve
The head can be flexed through 90⁰, keeping it closer to the skin. The pivoting head fits smoothly to uneven contours of the body, keeping un-plucked hair from remaining. It also lets you cover hard-to-reach places without straining. 


Gentle Epilation in the Bath & Shower
The water-resistant design allows you to use the device in the bath or shower comfortable. Pour shower gel direction onto the head to make a foam which will help the hair be remove more gently from the root. 

Panasonic Wet/Dry Epilator ES-EL8A

Wet & Dry Epilator is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad my old epilator broke! I hate to sound dramatic, but this epilator has changed my life. I am blessed with hair that grows rampant and have been epilating for over a decade, to reduce the "5 o'clock shadow" I'd even get on my legs. My previous epilator did a good job, but took a decent chunk of time. And as a result I struggled to maintain hair removal anywhere near as often as I would have liked to. Then it died and I got this Panasonic epilator - oh my my, it's an absolute beast and whips hair out in a tenth of the time, and manages to hurt less as well! I can easily freshen up every few days in a mere few minutes. The various heads are a bonus as well, I particularly like that I can keep my heels soft far more effectively than with a pumice stone. Highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best epilator ever I've been using Braun top of the range for many many years but the Panasonic Epilator beats them hands down. It picks up very short hairs first time around which means the process of hair removal is so quickly now. Definitely recommend this brilliant epilator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best One Yet. I recently bought this epilator as my current one was old & unreliable.After searching for one that met all my requirments this one surpassed all the others I looked at. Having used it I found it so much more comfortable & easy to use as the ergonomic shape made handling it a joy & it felt like the epilator just glided over my skin with no effort. I particularly wanted an epilator that had a specific attachment for underarms & I found it so adaptable to the contours of my arms & for the first time I didn't experience any pinching of the skin resulting in a rash. The extra head attachments make this epilator a very versatile product resulting in nice smooth skin in a minimum of time. Very happy with this product & would definitely recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silky smooth I was hesitant to try a new brand as i had been a Braun user for 7 years. I'm so glad i took a chance as i love this epilator! Unlike my old epilator, the head contours to the shape of your body, the tweezers remove the hair first go and the battery lasts long enough to do both legs on one charge. My legs feel a lot smoother too. I have only ever used this dry and on both long hair and shorter regrowth. The only down side (a very minor complaint) is that the cleaning brush is too small. Highly recommended but a warning if you have never used an epilator or waxed before - it will hurt. Also, try not to get as excited as i did in store when i turned it on and discovered it's three speed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First epilator and love it! I bought this after my razor lasted me 5 years. I have used a lot of different Panasonic products throughout my life and found them to be excellent products, I found this on their website and got very intrigued I looked up the reviews on this and was very positive. As soon as I started using it felt very strange but does an amazing job, no pain and was amazed at how much smoother the results are. Money well spent, thank you Panasonic for creating another amazing quality product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best hair removal product by far. I use this in and out of the shower. It's less painful than waxing but more efficient than shaving. I also love how many different features there are and it actually makes my showering a lot more enjoyable knowing Im getting a silky finish! I love this product and couldn't rate it high enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great epilator... Needed a new epilator after my Braun stopped holding its charge. I wanted to give this one a try as it has 60 tweezers. It is a great epilator and I am glad I purchased it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I received this product one week ago and it is amazing. My daughters grabbed it before I did and love it too. It gets the job done a lot quicker than my old model mostly due to the large amount of tweezers. I would definitely recommend it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not good for fine and fair hair Build quality is excellent. Head attachments are very handy. I have been using the same Braun Silk Epil since 2010 and this one hurts far less because of the various attachments. The underarm bikini attachment is fantastic. However, I am really disappointed in the amount of hairs it can pull out. It only gets about 50% the amount of hairs compared to my old Braun. A real shame, as Japanese designed stuff is usually far superior than anywhere else. I am very fair haired, so if you are too, perhaps stick with Braun. I suspect it would work better on thicker and darker hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features I bought this a couple of weeks ago to replace my 10+ years old model and have been pleasantly surprised by the ease of use and overall improved functionality.
Date published: 2018-11-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought this to use as an alternative to waxing, so far to good. It gives the freedom to touch up uneven regrowth as required rather than waiting for a salon visit. The pain to no more or less than waxing so completely bearable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short term pain for long term gain! I bought this about a month ago for the pure purpose of keeping my beauty bills down whilst maintaining the same quality as my waxing therapist does. I must say I am impressed. I currently use this epilator on my underarms, bikini area, tops and bottoms of my legs. Being an avid waxer/waxee(?), the pain factor is very low; especially on my underarms, bikini and tops of my legs. I usually shave the bottom half of my legs so this area is quite sensitive for me however I am working up to using the epilator fulltime! I find this epilator works best in the shower with shower gel (not lotion!) as per the recommended instructions. It also works best on long hairs as you don't have to go over the same area as much. I would definitely recommend some aftercare product of some sort for the sensitive folk as I usually come up a bit spotty afterwards. One con I would have is that you aren't able to use the epilator on certain parts of your body (areas are specified in the instructions) as these areas are prone to wrinkling *sad face*. So you (and your partner) may have to put up with hairy knees :p All in all this is a great product for someone who is looking to: - move away from shaving - cut their monthly waxing bills - save time booking apts and waiting for them - save awkward convos with their waxing therapist (A.k.a me, the Queen of Awkwardness) - front up to an event hair free without having the hassle of booking an emergency apt And this is all in the comfort of your own home!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Underwhelmed Bought to replace an Emjoi I’d had for about 20 years until it finally died. Read the reviews for this one and was encouraged by all the 4 and 5 stars. Liked the concept of the wet&dry usability, the larger head and more tweezers - actually this was a big selling point for me. Logically, it should provide a faster, closer finish than my previous epilator however that has not been the case. Tried both wet and dry. Apart from the wet version allowing for faster movement of the head over skin, it doesn’t remove hair faster or more effectively than dry. Plus had to go over the same skin at least 30% more times than with the Emjoi to achieve the same result. Not sure if that’s the tweezer design. No more or less painful than other epilators. Warning to people with a low pain threshold - don’t do it the first time with long hairs on your legs - that will always hurt, irrespective of the brand of epilator. Admittedly, I only used the leg/arm head for this review, so I can’t comment on the underarm/bikini line one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Painful! This is so painful I can barely use it. I’m using it wet in the shower to reduce pain and it’s still horrible. Don’t do it
