Philips Satinelle is a great epilator which I've had for over 12 years now. It still works fine and although it's pretty painful this is a very efficient hair removal method.

I remember the day when my mother offered Philips Satinelle epilator to me. I was 14 or 15, I don’t remember exactly and I felt really grown and feminine. “I’m a real woman now” were my thoughts. I was proud to have a real electrical epilator. Then I turned it on and tried it out on my legs…ouch! It hurts! But I wanted to look gorgeous in my short skirts so I pushed myself through the pain. “I’m a real woman and I won’t cry!”. Twelve years later my epilator still works and I can tell you all about it! Read my Philips Epilator review if you’re interested whether this is a good hair removal option for you.

Obviously, you can’t buy my epilator anymore. Luckily, progress is going on! But the Philips Satinelle line still exists and I decided to share the description of the newest epilator with you.

Philips Satinelle Epilator Description

Enjoy long lasting smoothness with the Philips Satinelle epilator. Gently removes hairs as short as 0.5 mm from the root. For hair free skin up to four weeks. Includes 2 accessories. The ultimate hair removal experience.

My Philips epilator is very simple: there are no thousand different heads, no speeds, there’s just 1 speed and 1 head, a cleansing brush and a charger. And a cute white bag (which still looks good after all these years!)

Here it is:

I still like the design of the epilator, I think it looks nice and I like the light blue color.

Here is the epilating head:

I have no idea anymore which model I have but it must be one of those, as this is the original charger:

My Opinion:

First of all, I can’t mention the great quality of the product: it still works perfectly after 12 years! I’ve never had any problems with my philips epilator. It works as the clock! It removes about 95% of all the hair. I use it mostly for my legs: other areas are too sensitive for this epilator. The process is pretty painful, personally I find waxing less so. What I also don’t like is that I get huge red dots all over my legs after epilating and they need about a day to become less. But my legs stay hair free pretty long which is amazing. All in all, if you want a great product for the price you should definitely choose Philips Satinelle epilator!

Epilating in general:

In the end, epilating is probably the cheapest hair removal method. I mean, I’ve had the epilator for so many years! Yet it is also the most painful so whenever I have the chance not to do it, I skip it and shave my legs instead. Also I hate the small red dots! Because of course I think about epilating my legs right the moment I have to leave the house and I’m planning to wear a short skirt so I can’t have these dots! So you always have to do it in advance.

Advantages of epilating:

Price

Longlasting result

Smooth skin

Disadvantages of epilating:

Pretty painful

Red dots and irritated skin
