I absolutely love all the products from Philips. I use their hair straightener and trust me, it’s a one hair tool that I cannot live without. So, recently I got hold of their newly launched Satinelle Legs and Arms Epilator BRE200/00 for women, which is endorsed by none other than Alia Bhatt. So, today I’m going to review and share my thoughts about Epilators and what I thought before using it and after using this.
For me salon trips are really a big task because I’m on the go all the time. Hair removal is a challenge for me. I have actually tried everything possible which will take as much as less time. So, after getting this cute and handy Philips Epilator, my life becomes a little easier.
I’m always scared of the word Epilators! I heard from a few of my friends that it hurts bad as it plucks the hair out, Epilators make your hair hard, etc. Firstly, yes it hurts a little but trust me it’s just a fraction of seconds that it’s just like a small ant bite. Secondly, it does not make your hairs harder. In fact, it will slowly soften your hairs and then make the hair growth even lesser.
Why it is better than the waxing?
I have a terrible experience in waxing after that I’m scared to my death doing it in parlours where they use hot wax on you and then use strips to take the hairs off. Once they use such hot wax that they end up hurting me. With Epilators, there are no such issues. Plus epilating is quick in comparing to waxing. Also, I don’t know how much you spend on your one visit to a parlour to get your waxing done, but here you can get a Philips Eplilator just for Rs. 2495 and you are sorted. It is travel friendly and easy to use. I remember when I first started waxing it hurt like hell, but then slowly you start to get used to it, same goes with the Epilators. I will, of course, choose epilator over waxing.
What the product Claim?
Enjoy long lasting smoothness with Philips Satinelle Essential epilator. Gently removes hairs at the root, as short as 0.5mm. The hair grows back thinner and more slowly to enjoy up to 4 weeks hair-free skin. Epilation removes 4x shorter hair than waxing, and is hassle free and no need of waiting till the next waxing session. It is an unique epilation system with gentle tweezing discs.
Philips Epilator available in three different variants: Philips Satinelle BRE200/00, Philips Satinelle Advanced BRE210 and Philips Satinelle Essential BRE201. I got the basic one which is Philips Satinelle Essential BRE200 which comes with a single head epilator, a brush to clean the epilator and a sensitive area cap. It is a corded device which I do not like. I feel like it should have a rechargeable battery which can work without the power cable. What I like is, it very portable and handy, travel friendly, easy to operate. The head can be detached and cleaned under running water for better hygiene.It actually removes the hairs softly and it does not pain much because of its high speed. The epilation discs remove 4x shorter hairs than wax (0.5 mm) at the root. So, no need to wait until the next waxing session.
All in all it is a great product to have!
I hope you like the review. Thank you so much for reading.
