Emjoi-AP-18-Emagine-EpilatorWorking with 72 tweezers, Emjoi AP-18 Emagine epilator has one of the highest number of tweezers on the market. It features two sets of discs and each set contains one fixed disc and two that open and close constantly. These dual opposed heads stretch the skin, keeping it taut to increase comfort and decrease pain. Emjoi AP-18 features17mm disc opening and that is the optimal radius to remove hair effectively.

It is for dry use only and is a corded unit. However, its cord is long enough to move around comfortably. Plus, you will never need to worry about running out of batteries because corded use will provide you with constant power. There are two-speed modes available. Speed mode 2 is for coarser hair whereas speed mode 1 is for finer hair.


Emjoi AP-18 has an ergonomically engineered handle. It balances in your hand perfectly and is easy to maneuver all over your body. Its curved shape will hug the curves of your body closely and miss to corner. It measures 1.5 x 5 x 5 inches and weighs 14 pounds which is a bit heavier than some of the other models on the market but it is quite a powerful epilator after all.


Emjoi AP-18 is suitable to use on the following parts of the body;

Arms and Legs – Its wide head will clear large surfaces of the arms and legs in no time.

Underarms – As the dual opposed heads will hold the skin taut at all times, the epilator will remove the unwanted hair efficiently, without the risk of catching loose skin by its tweezers.

Bikini Line – Its antimicrobial protection makes it safe to use on the bikini line without any risks.

Face – It is safe and gentle enough to be used on the facial area. When in speed mode 1, it will remove even the finest hair on the upper lip or the chin.


Emjoi-AP-18-Emagine-EpilatorEmjoi AP-18 Emagine epilator is a very innovative device and combines many technologies in one epilator. Patented Glide Technology lifts up and removes hair by gliding the tweezer discs over the skin without irritating it. The epilator will glide swiftly over your skin like a feather. Even if you have sensitive skin prone to rashes you do not need to worry because  AP-18 Emagine is as gentle as an epilator gets.

Meanwhile, the middle lifting fingers prepare hair for removal by lifting even the shortest hair strands up and decrease the possibility of ingrown hair. It can remove hair as short as 0.5mm right from the root and can give you smooth skin for up to 6 weeks.

Last but not least, Silver Ion Technology provides antimicrobial protection.  This technology inhibits the growth of microorganisms by forming a protective surface against microbes, pathogens, and bacteria, such as E. coli and Staph. Furthermore, it suppresses the growth of harmful mold and fungus.


Emjoi AP-18 Emagine epilator stands out for its effectiveness against ingrown hairs. Emjoi has integrated lifting fingers into this model in order to efficiently prevent the formation of ingrown hairs. Thus, if your skin is prone to razor bumps or ingrown hair, AP-18 Emagine might be one of your best choices. As well as preventing the formation of ingrown hair, these lifting fingers also allow for even the shortest hair to be picked up.

As you might guess, if hair strands are lying flat on your skin, they are less likely to be caught by the tweezers. However, when they are lifted up they become better exposed to tweezers. Thus, the lifting fingers are the key to smooth skin completely rid of all hair.


The package of Emjoi AP-18 Emagine epilator contains the following;

  • AP-18 – the epilator itself
  • Worldwide power cord (110V / 240V) – the unit is electrically operated and has to be used plugged in.
  • Cleaning brush – the unit is for dry use only and cannot be rinsed under water; it needs to be brush-cleaned.
  • Loofah – to be used before epilating sessions for exfoliating the skin and removing ingrown hairs.
  • Pouch – for easy storage and carrying around.


Emjoi AP-18 Emagine epilator does not feature a rechargeable battery and because of that, it needs to be used plugged in. This means that you will have to hassle with a power cord during your sessions. As the power cord sent with the unit is generously long, you will not have any problems with reaching anywhere. Still, there will be a cord on your way to deal with while epilating. In addition, it is a bit bulky and may not be ideal for traveling.


Bottom Line

Emjoi AP-18 Emagine epilator is a gentle, precise and efficient device. It is a bit high on the price range but also really professional. If you have sensitive skin or if you suffer from ingrown hairs, we highly recommend this sleek epilator.
