The Best Epilators for Your Face

braun facial2Unwanted facial hair is a real problem, and leaves us with some choices for how we get rid of it. Shaving is a no-no, it isn’t efficient, but Epilating is a great solution! Waxing is perhaps the only other real option but is very painful and hard to get right, especially for the face.

Why Epilate Facial Hair?

There’s no denying facial hair is an issue, and not just for older women, people of all ages experience unwanted hair on their face, and for women it can be a difficult thing to deal with, making us self conscious or even seeing us mocked by others! Not good! If you were to shave, it won’t last long because it doesn’t remove hair right from the root, and even worse will leave a five-o-clock shadow which is not a good look. That’s why Epilating is such a good solution, it is like a mass tweezing – removing hair right from the root and making sure it doesn’t grow back quickly at all, some leaving 6 weeks of no visible growth at all.

Fortunately, there are some amazing facial epilators out there, the big manufacturers realizing that this is a massive problem for many women and introducing new models or adding features that are great for epilating the face to their existing range, so what are the best epilators for the face?

What to Look For In a Facial Epilator

  • A thorough coverage making sure all hair is removed
  • As painless as possible (though there are things you can do to help this)
  • Precision – some of the areas of the face can be hard to reach perfectly
  • Good for sensitive skin – a rash on your face or irritation can be equally bad.braun facial

Braun Facial Epilator

Braun are one of the leading manufacturers of these products for a reason, and they’ve recognized the need for facial models. The Braun Facial Epilator, sometimes branded as the Braun 810, is one of the top models you can buy for this reason, and has many features that we look for, and others that go above and beyond, making this a bit of a luxury product.

The full list of features are as follows:

  • 10 micro tweezers to capture even the tiniest and thinnest hairs, which other Epilators may miss.
  • A thin head to allow you to reach all the different areas of your face, this is also amazing for areas such as the eyebrows to make sure you don’t overdo it and keep the natural hair which you want to!
  • Smooth skin for four weeks in just a few seconds, the 200 pluck movements every single second mean this does the job very quickly and doesn’t have to be any longer than necessary.
  • Battery operated so no charging needed, also making it great for traveling.
  • Built in exfoliating function which will help you to avoid irritation and can even make the process less painful!

A great luxury model for unwanted facial hair removal. Brain have hit the nail on the head here, especially for those who already have a method of removing hair elsewhere. It is very small, so don’t try and use it on other areas such as legs, as this will make it a longer process than it needs to be.

Emjoi Epi Slim

epislim2Emjoi are another titan of women’s hair removal products, and their equivalent of the Braun Facial is the ‘Epi Slim‘ range. This little pocket rocket does a superb job of removing hairs on the face. It isn’t quite as fancy as the above, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a decent model, and it can do a great job for small areas of your body.

So at under half of the price, do the features match up? What is on offer here…

  • Great for delicate areas and can also be used for bikini line and other small parts of the body
  • 9 Tweezers to remove hair in small areas
  • Improved motor on the most recent model which means that it can remove hair quicker and with a lot more efficiency.
  • Battery powered and portable

Okay, so it doesn’t have the same features as the Braun, but it will still do a good job. Exfoliating is important but can still be done separately after you Epilate and doesn’t have to be a built-in feature, so the Epislim is a good model. This is versatile and can be used elsewhere on the body if you’re happy to do that, and can be taken with you on your travels.

Bellabe Facial Epilator

We have mentioned the Bellabe before on the site, and it is a good option for those of us on a budget and are happy to do ‘manual’ Epilating. Plus it doesn’t use batteries or power so is great for traveling or just saving the planet! This is basically a ‘threading’ method of hair removal, and you see it used a lot on areas such as eyebrows, but it works well for any area of your face, and removes hair right from the root.

Features of the Bellabe facial hair remover

  • Removes the need for fancy electronics, waxes, creams and other products. Simplify the whole process
  • Small, portable, fast and effective
  • Great for all areas of the face and especially good for eyebrows and peach fuzz on your face.

Some say the Bellabe takes a bit of getting used to, but the reviews online are very good, and once you know what you’re doing with it it can be an excellent product, which can be used in conjunction with an Epilator elsewhere on your body. Plus, it is very affordable and eliminates the need for messing around with batteries and chargers.

Conclusion

Any of the above models will serve you well in the world of facial hair removal, they will provide long term clarity of your skin, meaning you should only have to Epilate every 4-6 weeks. The three different options mean you have a choice to make based on features and price which one you buy, but considering the huge amount of features on offer, and how immensely well-received all of these products have been, any one of them would provide you with great value for money. Getting rid of the peach fuzz or overgrowing eyebrows should no longer be a problem!

How To Make Epilating Less Painful

hp6401 useIf there’s one downside to Epilating it is the pain it can cause, especially if you don’t prepare and take precautions about it. Fortunately, there are ways to make Epilating hurt less, and we’ve got the definitive guide for you here! The methods below are totally safe and most importantly they get the job done, some are products you can buy and some are just techniques, but all will help in some way.

Buy the Right Epilator

This is the first thing to consider, whether you have the right Epilator in the first place. Some of them are less painful than others, with some models designed to be better for sensitive skin and a low pain threshold. On all of our Epilators we have reviewed how much they hurt and even put together this article to help you choose.

Numbing Creams

lidocaineOne of the most popular methods people use, and one I do recommend, is utilizing numbing creams on the area in question. This is also great for those of us who wax certain areas too. It is also known as Lidocaine, and one of the most popular types is called “Dr. Numb” – it is used for other pains and tattoos as well, so if it can help with the pain of needles inking your skin it should be able to help Epilation too! They usually have an effect for 2-3 hours but should be applied generously about an hour before you do the deed to make sure that they have taken effect. DO NOT just rub it on and go, or it won’t have had time to sink into your skin and actually take effect.

This doesn’t affect your skin elasticity or have any other negative effects and does the job perfectly, other Lidocaine creams will do a similar job but this is the one we recommend.

An alternative numbing cream which does a similar job, and is well reviewed on Amazon and other online retailers is the Numb Master. It is linked to below. Numb master is slightly more affordable which is positive, but only lasts for an hour and should be applied around 20 minutes before you begin the process of removing hairs. This doesn’t necessarily mean it is less effective, but the cycle is certainly quicker.

Other Tips

Although I believe creams are the best way to avoid pain when Epilating, there are other things you can do either as well or as an alternative. We’ve listed the rest of the methods below, and there’s no wives tales involved! It is all proven to help with hard science, lets kill the pain!

Hold The Skin Tight

One of the top tips for those of us who are getting on a bit in years too! If the skin is wrinkly or uneven it can cause a lot of pain, if the skin is tight the Epilator will function more efficiently and whip the hair right out with minimal irritation. All of us have areas (like the underarm for instance) that may need to be held tight to get the best result shaving.

Make Sure Your Hair is the Right Length Beforehand

Another big tip that can be really helpful. If the skin is too long there is a real nasty ‘pulling’ effect taking place. It isn’t nice and it makes the process hurt. If it is too short then the tweezers on your hair remover will struggle to get to it and remove it. Experiment with the right length to make sure you have something to grip but it is not pulling from a distance. Holding the epilator closer to the skin can have a similar effect and avoid gripping from the end of the hairs and feeling like your little brother pulling at your hairs when you were a kid!

Try it in The Shower

wetdryMAKE SURE you have a wet and dry model to do this, which means you can take it in the shower or bath with you. The best wet and dry Epilators offer some great features, and it helps a lot with the pain. Showering opens up your pores, in a way loosening the hair and making it easier to pull out, the resistance, and therefore the pain of removing it, is much less.

Exfoliate!

Exfoliating is good practice anyway, this will mean that there are less ingrown hairs as the exfoliator gets rid of dead skin and clears the pores. It reduces the pain but also the inconvenience of having ingrown hairs after use, which is a very real possibility.

My Experiences

The first time you use an Epilator it does hurt, and the fact you’ve ended up reading this article tells me you probably know that already, but the above tips can go a long way to reducing that. Numbing cream is the biggest help in my opinion, combined with exfoliating regularly and having the right model to start with, the pain will be less. Plus, your body conditions itself to cope with it, you really do get used to it and the pain lessens the more regularly you do it. Keep going and soon you won’t be struggling at all.

Braun SE7681 Silk-épil 7 Wet and Dry Epilator Review

silk epil 7Braun’s Silk-epil range of Epilators are some of the best known models out there, commonly available and at the time of writing the SE7681 model is the second best selling Epilator on Amazon, in spite of being over $100. We’re looking at why it is such a high seller in this review, and taking an in-depth look at the features, which it has to be said are quite impressive, and justify the price tag of what is one of the best Epilators available, the Silk-Epil 7 SE7681. The RRP is over $100, but don’t let that put you off, this wet and dry hair remover with built in trimmer will not let you down, as Braun have pulled it out of the bag with their design…

Features

Lets crack on with a full list of the features, of which there are many! Braun have thought of everything with this hair remover and for those looking for the complete Epilating solution this could be the one for you…

  • Pre-Epilation wipes. This is a unique feature that I haven’t seen used by any other brand other than Braun, and the wipes really do help, designed to numb the skin and reduce the pain involved, they don’t make it entirely pain-free but they do help a great deal.
  • Five different head attachments. Braun have included different heads for different purposes. There’s a trimmer head as well as four others, a facial head designed for peach fuzz and facial areas, a ‘sensitive’ cap which is great for areas such as the bikini line, there is also an ‘efficiency’ cap and the standard shaver head.
  • Cordless use for your convenience, meaning you don’t have to leave it plugged in at all times.
  • ‘Wet and Dry’ – as the title explains this is a wet and dry epilator, this means it can be used in the shower, not just for cleaning, but during the actual use of the product. This is helpful for two reasons, it is said to reduce the pain involved by stimulating the skin first, but also means that the clean-up operation afterwards is a lot more simple.
  • Claims to be able to get rid of hairs as small as 0.5 mm which is the size of a grain of sand!
  • Speed settings – choose the speed at which you feel most comfortable.
  • 40 tweezers for maximum hair removal efficiency.
  • Smartlight – this feature lights up the area you need to epilate which means you are a lot less likely to miss patches of hair! Helps you getting the most detail possible.
  • Pivot head – the head can move 15 degrees to help contour to your body, this is great for epilating areas that aren’t flat such as underarms and more.
  • Designed to massage the skin as it moves across it which helps to sooth the hair removal.
  • Just a one hour charge can provide 40 minutes of cordless use.

What Others Have Said

As you can see, the list of features is impressive, and this is reflected in the reviews elsewhere on the internet. Concensus is that the Braun SE7681 is one of the top models out there. People have commented on the many benefits of being able to use this in the bath and shower, as well as the longevity of the use, meaning you don’t have to use it that regularly, which is great for those of us with a low pain threshold!

Conclusion

As we’re called the “Best Epilator Guide” I feel it only right to say that this definitely has some claim to being the best model you can buy. Brain’s Silk-epil series really is great quality, well-built, and they’ve thought of almost everything with the features. If you’re looking for a cheap model, this isn’t for you, and you can buy decent hair removal products for less money, but if you’re looking for the very best, look no further. 10/10 from us.

Emjoi Epi Slim Portable Epilator Review

epislimWe are often asked what the best Epilators are for those on the go, if you’re going traveling, spend a lot of time on the road for work or just don’t want to lug your Epilator and attachments to your boyfriend’s when you stay over! There are quite a few models of cordless Epilators, which you can of course take out and about with you, but perhaps the title of ‘most portable’ Epilator out there is this, the Emjoi Epi Slim. It is tiny, fits in your handbag or overnight bag and the compromise on quality or features really isn’t so much. Plus, it is quite an affordable model. We delve into more detail on its features below…

Features of the Emjoi Epi Slim

  • Nine tweezers for removing hair. Quite a lot less than larger models, but still gets the job done, especially in smaller areas.
  • Improved motor for less pain! One previous model of the Epi Slim caused some discomfort to users, Emjoi have addressed this and improved the motor and build quality.
  • As we’ve mentioned already, it is amazing for travel, so tiny and still works a charm!
  • Takes two AA batteries. These are universally available (again great for traveling) and means you don’t have to worry about charging. Two batteries will last you a while too!
  • Great for precision and detail due to its size.

Are there any downsides?

Is it perfect? No, but it comes close for what it is. If you’re looking to Epilate big areas on a regular basis, such as if your leg hair growth is out of control or you’re a man looking to get rid of back hair, this isn’t going to do the job with ease because it is small. Emjoi have other models for that. What it will do is provide a detail hair remover, great for smaller areas such as the bikini line, underarm, face for those of us who are getting whiskers and touch ups on legs. It makes this the perfect companion to a stay-at-home Epilator for big areas, while the Epi Slim comes with you on your travels! It isn’t designed to do huge areas, but that’s okay, what it does, it does perfectly.

What Others Have Said

A quick scan of reviews online will show you how well regarded this is, it is one of the top selling Epilators out there and user experiences are generally fantastic, with recommendations from all ages and skin types, and even hairstylists and grooming experts chipping in to recommend the Emjoi. It has four stars out of five on Amazon, great for an affordable Epilator which doesn’t have all the features of some of its rivals!

Conclusion

It is what it is, a portable, travel Epilator, and if you’re in the market for that, this could be your answer. It is easy to use, easy to power (batteries) and easy to take with you wherever you go. Comes with our top recommendation if this is your aim. If you need to do bigger areas then look to one of its older sisters in the Emjoi range perhaps, but if you want something to take on the go with you or just do small areas such as your face and underarms this will do the job nicely.

iVog Pro X-Tweez Epilator Review

ivog proMany of the Epilators featured here on our site are made by huge manufacturers. By comparison, iVog are certainly not as big as Braun or Philips, but they do offer an Epilator which rivals their features, and today we’re going to take an in-depth look at the iVog Pro X-Tweez.

The first thing you may notice when it comes to the iVog is the price, it is very affordable when compared to a lot of the Epilators out there. This may mean it strikes you as a cheap imitation brand, but that is not the case, and the X-Tweez does hold its own when it comes to hair removal with some cleverly thought out features, and just about everything you’d need from a value solution to that unwanted hair.

Features

  • It’s a 2-in-1. This is the first thing to mention, this is not JUST an Epilator like a lot of the models we feature, it is also a body shaver. Some see this as pointless but there are many people out there who find a use for both, if you’re one of them this could be the Epilator for you, and it further adds to the value for money.
  • 36 Tweezers and a medium size design.
  • Unisex style design to appeal to both men and women. The epilator for men market is growing and iVog avoid the problem of using a pretty pink flowery model if you’re a butch man!
  • A clever rotating disc system is designed not to leave a hair untouched, and make sure that the coverage is thorough.
  • 2 speed settings for you to choose from depending on how coarse and thick the area of hair is.
  • Can be used wirelessly. It doesn’t have the battery life of some other models, but a 6 hour charge can get you around 30-40 minutes of usage, which is enough for most of us and very respectable considering the price.
  • Comes with a built in light to help you see detail that you may have missed.

Whats in the Box?

One of the really cool things about this product is the fact that it comes with some great added extras. As well as the Epilator itself, this has a cool little carrying pouch, multiple heads for its epliating/shaving modes, a cleaning brush and even an exfoliating pad, which helps a great deal with avoiding ingrown hairs or irritation after use.

Conclusion

This is a really highly reviewed Epilator, and many have complimented the way it holds charge, the fact that it doesn’t cause a lot of pain, and of course the thoroughness of hair removal.

Is this the best model money can buy? No. It is not an all-singing, all-dancing top of the range model, but it is an amazing choice for those of us on a budget, and can be picked up for an exceptional price considering how versatile it is, the features that it offers and the fact that it is so highly regarded. The iVog Pro X-Tweez is a great budget epilator.

Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator Review

hp6576Philips manufacture a huge range of products, from grooming products such as Epilators to garden equipment! So, does the HP6576 Satin Perfect live up to their company’s huge reputation? How does it compare to the other hair removal products we review here on bestepilatorguide?

Price

It should be said straight off the bat that this is one of the more pricey Epilators, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t value for money, plus it will last you a long time, coming with a two year warranty from the manufacturer. If you’re looking for a cheaper, more budget model, something from the Emjoi range may be more suited to your needs, you may however have to compromise on features if you choose to go cheaper, but if you’re simply looking for the best quality, keep reading…

Features

Philips have gone all out with the HP6576 and have tried to create a luxury model of Epilator. They’ve succeeded. The feature list is impressive, and they’ve thought of almost everything in terms of both quality and comfort. Of course, it needs to have something to offer considering you may be paying north of $100 for it, but not many who have invested in one of these will find themselves disappointed. Full features list:

  • Ceramic discs designed to remove even the finest hairs. No hairs will be missed by this model as it slides along your skin. The discs are hypo-allergenic and will help to avoid the irritation some hair removal products will unfortunately cause.
  • Active hairlifter. This is a vibration technique that will pull your flat lying hairs upright so that they are removed by the tweezers within the epilator, this creates a more thorough trim and again makes sure there are no leftover hairs.
  • A massage system is in place which is designed to stimulate and even soothe the skin to avoid discomfort.
  • Washable head. One of the most annoying aspects of this way of removing hair can be the clean up afterwards, but with a washable head, you can simply and easily get rid of the debris that will inevitably be left over in your machine.
  • Multiple heads for length. Choose whether you want to take it all off or simply trim or style your hair, simply by replacing the head.
  • Cordless. This is a huge feature that many people are looking for. This no-expense-spared Philips model can be used for forty minutes cordless, which is great for weekends away or just taking for an overnight stay somewhere. It only takes an hour to fully charge.
  • A built in ‘opti-light’ is in place to help you see all of the finest hairs and make sure you remove them accurately.
  • Two different speeds for your personal preference.

Whats in the Box?

The kit is very pleasing on the eye and shows the quality on offer. It comes with, as you would expect, a charger, a cleaning brush, all of the attachments we have already mentioned and a storage pouch. The design of the products is great, and they look like a high quality product. Though this is not the number one aspect we judge on, its nice to have something that looks good when taking it out and about.

deluxe

Conclusion

Met almost unanimously with good reviews, this model, though not the least painful on the market, is one of the most effective. Philips have focused on effectiveness and features such as the light, multiple heads and clever ways to remove fine hairs make this one of the top Epilators out there when it comes to doing what it is designed for, removing hair! It comes with a two year warranty, so the manufacturer is clearly confident of its build quality, and it is unlikely you’ll be disappointed with the results. Any pain can be minimized with creams and other products, eliminating the one downside of the HP6576. Definitely gets the thumbs up from us!

Emjoi Soft Caress Epilator Review

soft caressToday we’re looking at another of the Emjoi range of Epilators, and another with branding that alludes to being a more comfortable and painless models. Unfortunately such thing does not exist, but some are a lot better than others when it comes to pain, and one of the companies that does a huge amount to try and keep your skin from hurting is Emjoi. So does this model really have a ‘soft caress’ feel to it and live up to the branding?

The company certainly haven’t downplayed this epilator’s abilities, describing it as a ‘totally luxurious hair remover’. It is justified, though, and the hair removal is not only effective, but is relatively comfortable. Of course, as we always stress here, it is not a pain-free process, and it is unrealistic to expect that the first time you use a product like this to remove hair that it doesn’t hurt, but as epilators go this is one of the best in terms of pain, offering, in their own words ‘patented, pain reduction technology’.

Features:

Lets get down to business and look at exactly what is on offer here.

  • 24 karat gold plated tweezers, so there can be no denying the quality! This is something you don’t find in many epilators.
  • Protection against damaging bacteria to make sure there’s no irritation after use.
  • Contoured design to follow the curvature of any body and make sure every inch is covered.
  • Can remove hairs as short as o.5 mm to make sure it is completely thorough.
  • 36 tweezer discs to remove hair right from the very root.
  • Can be used cordless (something the e60 doesn’t offer)
  • Has massaging attachment to further add to the comfort.
  • Offers two different speeds for you to select between.

What’s in the Box?

All Emjoi epilators tend to come with a range of attachments and extras in the box, which further adds to their already impressive value. As well as the hair remover itself (which, it should be said, is small and very portable), there is a massaging finger attachment, travel pouch and adapter (very useful for the jet-setters among us!), instructional booklet as you may expect and a loofah! Not something its competitors can necessarily offer.

What Others Have Said

The reviews online for this product are generally very positive. It is not to be taken literally, is it a soft caressing model that will feel like silk on your skin? Of course not! Is it one of the least painful epilators? Absolutely. Other reviews have talked in depth about the quality of this epilator, and the painlessness it does offer. Many people talk about the Emjoi as the “best epilator they’ve ever owned”. It is efficient and manages to effectively remove the vast majority of hairs.

Conclusion

We’re big advocates of Emjoi here, and their range of hair removal products is great. This is no exception, they may have bigged themselves up in the description, but it is justified, and the product has almost universally been very well received. Its RRP is $67.95 which is very reasonable, and the chances are you won’t be disappointed with what is on offer. Portable, cordless, not very painful, affordable and effective, it basically ticks all the boxes and comes with recommendation from us at bestepilatorguide.com!

Emjoi eRase e60 Epilator and Shaver – Our Review

emjoi eraseEmjoi are a brand we cover a lot on our Epilator site, their large range of products are generally well received, and the eRase e60 is one of the best reviewed Epilators out there. I can tell you straight off the bat that this is one of the best out there, for a variety of reasons, not least because of the comfort of use and lack of pain reported by so many of the users!

Why is the eRase so Painless?

Well, its duel head and 60 tweezers come with precision engineering, they’re designed to take hairs right from the root at the first attempt, and they usually manage to do so! Meaning that pain is minimized through shear efficiency. If you’re a first time user it won’t be totally painless of course, but as Epilators go, this is one of the best for those of us with a low pain threshold! Even more of the features (mentioned below) are in place to help with your comfort and avoiding pain.

Features

On top of its impressive 60 tweezers, the Emjoi e60 comes with a ton of other features:

  • eRase “glide” technology to ensure smooth passing across the skin, another way it minimizes discomfort.
  • Dual heads are designed to stretch the skin whilst passing over it, yet ANOTHER way it minimizes pain, and also makes sure it gets the best coverage when it comes to ridding your skin of unwanted hair.
  • Can be used on the face as well as body, so you can get rid of that unwanted, fine facial hair.
  • Can remove hairs as tiny as 0.3 mm
  • Takes all hairs from right at the root, meaning you can go as long as 6 weeks without having to epilate again, perfect for long holidays and just more convenient!
  • Comes with a ‘sensitive’ attachment for the more sensitive areas on the body such as the bikini line.
  • Two different speeds to suit your preference.
  • Comes in the box with a travel pouch, impressive 71 inch cord, cleaning brush, an instructional booklet and more.
  • Available in a variety of different colors! Nothing to do with performance but it is still cool to be able to choose your favorite color to add to your collection.
  • Great value for money!

Downsides of the eRase e60

There are downsides, in spite of this being a fantastic Epilator. It isn’t cordless, meaning it has to be plugged in for you to use it, not ideal for travel but usually not a big issue. This is really the only criticism we can find of the e60, though some have talked about Emjoi not having the build quality to last years and years, but naturally Epilators do have a life expectancy, and won’t last you 10 years unfortunately! That’s just the nature of products like this.

Conclusion

This Epilator really does come with high recommendation from us, it is well made, great for managing pain, and does a good job, all at a very reasonable price tag. Emjoi are one of the best brands out there who specialize in Epilation. You can usually pick this model up for well below its $150 RRP, making it great value for money. If you’re not overly bothered about cordless use, and a (very reasonable 71″) cord will suffice for you, this could well be the model to suit your hair removal needs!

Philips HP6401 Satinelle Epilator Review

philips hp6401When it comes to Epilators, Philips are one of the top manufacturers out there, and most prolific, which is proved with the Philips HP6401 Satinelle, which at the time of writing is the best selling Epilator on Amazon. So does it live up to the hype?

About the Company

In case you didn’t already know, Philips are an absolute giant in the world of consumer electronics, producing everything from kitchen appliances to, well, epilators! Founded over 100 years ago, the company pride themselves on quality and simplicity throughout their massive range.

Price

The first thing to mention about the Satinelle is the price. Philips have obviously looked to hit a more affordable area of the market, and while most epilators will be close to, or above $100, this is available for less than half of that price, but is it quality and reliable or is it simply a cheaply made option for those of us not wanting to splash the cash on our grooming? An excellent question…

Features of the HP6401

Dual Speed. Impressively, this product offers multiple speeds, this is in place so that you can choose depending on which area you are focusing on, and the more sensitive areas may require the ‘gentle’ speed to reduce the pain of the experience. Looking to epilate larger areas such as legs? Turn up the speed and whizz through if you can handle it.

Although this is not a wet and dry model (can’t be put underwater or used in the shower) it does have a washable head, which makes the cleanup operation 100 times easier! This is something everyone who buys this product will be thankful for after a use or two.

As you would expect, it removes hair from the root and leaves your skin feeling super smooth, it boasts removal of hairs just 0.5 mm long, which means you can get really close to the skin with the tweezers. 21 Hypoallergenic discs are in place to avoid the skin of the areas in question getting irritated during use.

The Satinelle HP6401 is designed to be a full body Epilator, to remove hairs as painlessly as possible in all areas of the body, there aren’t a lot of places where this struggles even when compared to the more expensive models on the market.

The use of the product is corded, which is fine for most of us but may not be ideal for traveling. It is the cheapest in a whole range of sister products from Philips, some of which offer more complex features, but for a basic trimmer, this could be the one for you.
