First you have to charge the rechargable batteries in the handset for an hour with the plug and lead provided; there is an indicator light which tells you when its fully charged. 1 month later with light use the initial charge is still going strong.
You are advised to use the exfoliator brush supplied 24 hours in advance of depilation. I loved the exfoliator brush, its pretty and feminine with a plastic crystal on top to fit over the fingers and give you a good grip. I will probably use this more than anything else. I do not plan my hair removal sessions 24 hours in advance though, and I don't think pre-exfoliation really makes much difference to how well the epilator works.
I tried the epilator first. The massage guard was quite easy to fit, although since it has rather flimsy moving bars I managed to disconnect one, but this was easily put back into place. I didn't even notice any massaging effect. The epilator has to be held at right angles to the surface of the skin and worked very well although I did go over the surface of my legs a couple of times to make sure I got all the hairs. A word of caution though, the epilator head has moving blades, don't press too hard. I didn't keep the handset upright as I negotiated a tricky turn round the outside of my knee and ended up nicking the skin.Read more ›
Other than that, it does take the hairs out very well, even short hairs. It seems very good at gripping the hairs.
It does rotate faster, thus leading to quicker results (as promised in the description).
it is quite light & soft to hold & easy to work with. I prefer the shape of it as it holds better for my small hands.
it also has a shaving attachment which makes it ideal for cutting the hairs shorter if needed prior to epilating (NEVER EVER ATTEMPT TO EPILATE LONG HAIRS!
It has 2 speed settings, & charges quite quickly (within 1 hour) & gives roughly about 40 minutes of cordless epilation).
It comes with all the standard attachments for epilation, trimming and shaving of body hair, as well as 3 plastic protectors. An added touch is a round body brush with a handle, which is supposed help with dealing with ingrown hair. Personally I have not tried it as I suffer with keratosis pilaris and body brushing exacerbates my condition.
The Philips SatinSoft needs around 1 hour to charge and a full charge gives you 30 min battery life of cordless operation. The epilator is a nice ergonomic shape and lighter than other ones I've owned, making for added control during shaving. The switch on button has two speed settings too. It can be used both for dry and wet epilation. Personally I find this to be a very practical advantage. What's more this product works amazingly well at removing body hair with minimal pain. I would go as far as to say this is the most painless epilator I have owned.
One area that this product lacks is good comprehensive instructions. Anyone who has already owned an epilator will probably not mind that. However a first time user of epilators might want to look up online videos demonstrating the functions of the various attachments included in the pack.
Overall I really like this epilator as it is practical and as painless as they come.
