Wish I could epilate. I used to do it, but it gave me terrible ingrown hairs. Not ingrown in the traditional "it turns into a pimple" sense. More "undergrown." They would grow right under the surface of my skin, I'd see them laying there horizontal, and my legs would itch like mad. I guess my weak hear wasn't strong enough to break the surface. Tried lots of exfoliation and everything, but what always ended up happening is that I would scratch my legs till they bled, and then I would get scabs, and then I would pick at them a bit, and now I've got scarred legs.
So, epilating sounds great, but isn't for everyone. I'm stuck with a razor. Sigh.
