In the run-up of the test we have defined the following test criteria:
- Epilation result
- Battery performance
In order to be able to evaluate these criteria, we have defined several tests for the epilators. First, the scope of delivery and functionality are checked. In a first test run, the devices are used at the lowest level.
The volume is measured from a distance of one meter. The other stages are then tested. Handling and user-friendliness are always evaluated.
The devices are kept under water to test whether they are easy to operate even when they are wet. Before a further run is started, the epilators are completely discharged and recharged to check the battery performance. The epilation result is determined by precise hair removal without causing skin irritation.
It is also evaluated how useful the accessory is and how easy it is to attach. Finally, the cleaning effort is evaluated.
In order to rule out mistakes and to ensure the strain of everyday use, each test takes place in several rounds.
The test criteria receive percentages depending on their importance. The final score is then objectively calculated from the test criteria using an algorithm.
Our product selection is based on observation of the current market. In addition to popular branded products, we also include insider tips in our selection. Criteria such as price and range of functions are an important factor for us. The test field is also determined by analysis and evaluation of customer reviews and external tests (e.g. Stiftung Warentest).
The devices are purchased anonymously or lent to us by the manufacturer. Dealers and manufacturers have no influence on the tests and our evaluation.
As soon as new relevant products come onto the market, our test field is extended by these. The new products go through the same test as the already tested devices.
