SatinPerfect removes even fine short hairs while being gentle on the skin for comfortable and complete hair removal.

How does it work?

Philips SatinPerfect is a very simple and easy to use epilator: high-speed rotating tweezer discs gently pluck hairs from the root, giving you smooth hair-free skin without ingrown hairs or skin irritation.

Tips and Tricks

  1. Exfoliate your skin regularly to prevent ingrowing hairs.
  2. Epilate: Select your preferred speed, place the epilator at 90 degrees angle against the hair growth and gently glide over your skin with smooth even pressure. The multiple tweezer discs will quickly remove the hair without pulling the skin.
  3. Moisturise the treated area and your skin will be left silky smooth.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good all round 2 Sep 2012
    By buy-it-try-it VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Having read the 2 previous reviews I think it might be useful for readers to hear from someone who's epilated before; a lot of the negative stuff in the other writeups, in my opinion might apply to any epilator newbie. Hang in there people, it really does get better! It's so many years since my first epilator that I can't really remember any pain, so sorry if I sound unsympathetic, I'm not.

    Right. Epilators. I'm comparing this one with my most recent ones; the Braun Silk Epil Xpressive range. I've had 2 or 3 of these, upgrading as the new ones came out to get rechargeability or wet/dry capapbility or whatever. And I've actually been pretty happy with them. If you take an averagely hairy leg, never waxed, never epilated, and attack it with any epilator, it's going to hurt, but for my sturdy pins which have been regularly waxed and epilated for more than 20 years, it isn't so much of a challenge. The "pain"; it's no more than a mild prickling once you're used to it. Out of the box (nice packaging) the Philips set looks the part, though marginally less "quality" in appearance and handle than the Braun if I'm honest. I charged it up and set to. First, the instructions are entirely diagrammatic, but unless you haven't read an instruction book for a very long time this shouldn't be a problem for most. As long as you note your model number and which acccessories you should have it's ok.

    So the set contains the epilator, a special head, and a smaller "disposable-battery-powered" epilator for sensitive areas. This last one I can't understand at all.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Really, really fast hair removal 31 Oct 2012
    By Boothie
    My friend bought one of these and told me that it was way better than my epilator. I have to say I was skeptical as my Philips Satinelle is pretty hard to beat. But I was blown away by the Satin Perfect when I tried it. The wider head means that you have a larger hair removal space, and it is about twice the speed of the other one, so I recon I can halve my hair removal time. The light is simply a stroke of genius as I normally have to sit right under a lamp to get a really good finish on my legs. And the ergonomic grip (which I normally think is over-rated) actually made a surprising difference when I compared it with my old epilator. Oh and the ceramic discs (I was skeptical) were much softer on the skin considering it was brand new (with the metal ones I've found they take a bit of 'wearing in' when you first get them). I'm converted. Both of them are brilliant products, but when I come to change my Satinelle, I'm definitely going to spend the extra and upgrade to the Satin Perfect! My only criticism is it sometimes takes a bit of repetition to turn it off. But that's such a small thing.

    I have epilated for about 10 years, so it doesnt hurt AT ALL, and I can do it as i'm running out the door as there is no irritation or redness. For all those people who experience pain at the start - it is longer term hair removal, so it will hurt a bit while your body gets used to it. Persevere. I promise you it is well worth it! The hair really does grow back so much finer, and for all you ladies like me with dark brown hair, it means you can get away with a lot more time out having fun instead of worrying about stubble!

    Verified Purchase
    I needed a new Epilator and I thought I would go for another philips since my first Epilator was a philips and I was extremely happy with it and I had if for about 6-7 years and thought it was time to treat myself to another one.

    My previous philips Satin Perfect must have been one of the first ones on the market back then. It came with 3 different head pieces and a cooling device that you attached to the epilator to cool down the area that is being worked on, it was brilliant, never left any redness on the area you were working on and I felt your hair growth was less frequent. You also got an exfoliating head and a shaver head.. It worked a treat.

    So, I decided to go with another Philips Satin Perfect band again... Oh deary me, guys what have you done!! It was not an improvement from the one I purchased 6 years ago, to me it is not worth the money I paid for:

    You only get two heads, both are almost identical, yes the little light is the only improvement I can see. When I epilator any area, it leave red spotting marks, so I really missed the cooling device that came with my first one.

    Yes, you can use it wet but I would rather have one that worked off the mains as you dont have to charge before use.

    I find the epilotor is not getting all hairs and I need to use this more than my previous one.

    I have my epilator 3-4 weeks it looks like one of the head pieces is coming lose so it spots working even thou the motor is still running, I can't return it as I have throw away the packaging, as I didn't think Id need to return it.
