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.

FEATURES:
* 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

PROS:
* 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.

CONS:
* 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.

TIPS: 
* 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.

I RECOMMEND THIS TO:
Those who are looking for an alternative to waxing and shaving.

OVERALL:
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
