Review: Philips Satinelle Epilator HP600

I've been shaving my legs for as long as I remember. I want to try waxing, but I'm too lazy to go to the salon. I'm also scared to try Do-it-yourself (DIY) waxing 'coz what if I'll burn myself?! So, I asked myself, "why not try an epilator?" The effect is just like waxing but in the convenience of my own home. I got this epilator a few months ago and I think this deserves a review.

Product Info from Philips:
Enjoy long lasting smooth legs with this Philips Epilator. 
Removes hair from the root, for hair free legs up to four weeks.

* Ergonomic grip - for comfortable handling.
* Fast and efficient epilation system - pulls out the hairs by the root.
* 2 speed settings - extra speed setting for thin hairs and difficult to reach areas.
* Washable epilation head - for extra hygiene and easy cleaning.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 2,299 at Watsons

* easy to use and clean 
* hair-free legs up to 2-3 weeks
* can be used on the arms, legs and underarm (but I only use this on the lower leg area and underarms)
* the epilation head is made of stainless steel, therefore its durable.
* no more itching when the hair starts to grow, unlike using a shaver.

* no travel case
* I admit, it's super painful at first but take note I'm not used to waxing my legs. After using it several times I got used to it and its not that painful anymore.

* It is best to use the epilator after showering so that the pores are still open (make sure to wipe the area with a towel first)
* Do not apply anything (lotion, oil) before and after epilating.
* Do not wet the area within 12 hours after epilating, it is best to do it before you go to bed.

Those who are looking for an alternative to waxing and shaving.

I'm glad I tried this!  Now, I don't have to bring a shaver with me everytime I travel coz like I said, I used to shave everyday, but  ever since I started epilating, my legs stay hair-free up to 3 weeks. This product is LOVE =D
