Never heard of this before. Where do you get one in the U.S? Sounds like it really works so I want one too :)

I bought 2 recently, and it's alright. Not as good as a twizzer lol. I feel the hairs are being remove but when I look, I still see them. I wonder if I use it correctly. I think I did, I'm sure of it. What about you guys? How good does it do the job?

It really does work, and it's a very popular facial hair-removing tool in Asia. :)
Basically it's a spring. You bend the spring into an upside-down 'U', put it against your face (cheek, chin, upper-lip, etc.), and then you twist the handles on the left/ride sides to remove the hair.

Youtube video of how it works, for those who are interested:

I have one and I use it often. It does work if you use it properly. I prefer it to the other methods.

I've got this!
It's like a metal stick that can pluck out a lot of hairs at once instead of using tweezers and plucking out only a couple of hairs at once.
You can get it off ebay. I don't know of any shops that sell the epistick.

U can get them off eBay for...around 5 dollars~~

Hmm, is there a proper way 2 using it? Coz I use it, and after I'm done, it looks good and all, but when I brush my finger of where I used it, I sorta still feel the hairs, like I've snapped them?

dont....i only just heard of them and by the looks of it they will WRECK/MAKE YOUR PORES BIG....anyone who uses them will need a hell of lot of time..not to mention patience and a very good/ alot of toner..to make the pores go smaller
dont salons provide a professional wax or something that lasts really long.. im pretty sure asian women who get married have it done just before...
