Rated 4 out of 5 by Ladyred2598 Good Product for hair removal
‘I received a free samples of the Philips Satinelle Advanced Epilator to review and after trying it several times using all the included attachments I found that I preferred to use it without the attachments as it seemed to work better. I liked that it was cordless and seemed to hold a charge well.
I would recommend this product to friends as it was easy to use and `painless` as some epilators can be painful to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LJS78 Good Product; easy to use; lots of options
Overall, I liked the epilator, that was sent to me as a free sample but I am just trying to adjust to using it vs. a razor.

I would first like to state that I received this product for free to try and give my honest feedback of my experience.
I had never used an epilator before using this product. I usually use a razor for shaving, so this was a different experience for me.
-Pretty easy to set up and use right away
-Gave a decent shave that lasted a couple days, probably longer than shaving
-Though I have a pain tolerance, I wouldn't say this product is pain free
-Takes longer than just shaving
For the price, I don't think that I would recommend the epilator when it would be so much more time efficient and cheaper to just use a razor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SabrinaA Performs nicely and has several useful attachments
I received this epilator free in exchange for my honest review. It charged up quickly and was ready to go. I've used it several times and haven't had to recharge it yet. At first, I thought the built in light was silly, but I quickly found that it helps quite a bit, especially in lower light areas of the house. I used the epilator on its own and with each attachment.
It works great on its own as long as you hold it at the correct angle. I found that it was difficult for me to hold it exactly right to remove the most hair, but when I put the massaging head attachment on, it forced me to hold the epilator in the correct 90 degree position. The rollers on the massaging head actually felt good on my skin and did help with the pain a bit. The only problem with this and all of the other attachments is that you have to press a bit harder to remove the hair.
The sensitive area and facial attachments cover part of the epliator head to focus on a smaller area. You have to press a bit harder to get to the bottom of the hair, but they work just fine.
The razor head works great. I've never used an electric razor before, but this is nice to have for quick touch ups or for the sensitive areas you may be afraid to use the epliator on. It's fast and no hair is left behind.
I only used the epilator in the shower once. It worked fine, but without a mirror in the shower, removing my underarm hair was difficult. I prefer to keep my showers short, so I will probably not use it in the shower again.
Clean up is simple. I remove the head - which comes off easily with the push of a button, use the provided brush to remove any hairs from it, rinse under warm water and allow to air dry.
All in all, this is a great product and a definite step up from my old epliator. It does a good job removing hair, comes with several useful attachements, and a bag to store it all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AnnetteG Better than shaving or waxing
I received this epilator free in return for leaving a review. This product is a good replacement if you are tired of waxing and shaving every other couple of days. Even though the epilator can be a little painful, it gives longer results than shaving or waxing. It is similar to the feeling I feel when getting my eyebrows plucked. It is an electric device the removes dozen of hairs at a time. So if you are sensitive to pain I wouldn’t suggest using this product. It uses an AC adapter instead of batteries, and is easy to clean. Two speed settings, with the low setting meant for bony areas like ankles and knees

Rated 5 out of 5 by MonikaB Easy to Use Product
I received a free Philips Satinelle Advanced Epilator. I've always used Philip's products and had a high expectation for this product. Once again I was not let down. This product was easy to operate and change the guards. I use this product weekly to shave my underarms. Afterwards I have a smooth finish. I never get any irritating hair bumps either. I definitely recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AMYb38 This product is fancy with lots of options with use
I received a free sample of this Philips Satinelle Advanced Epilator to use in exchange for writing a review about it. I was very excited as it had been quite some time since I had used an electric shaver (is how I think of it).It came very nicely packaged and came with directions and a bunch of adaptors. It was a bit overwhelming because I didn`t know they had gotten so fancy. One complaint I can say is, the directions were VERY overwhelming. You have to the fold the paper just the right way to find the English section and it isn`t even listed as the 1st language on the paperwork, so it took me a few minutes to find words I understood reading.(there was like 4 or 5 languages) my suggestion...make the pictures more colorful and larger font with pictures of the body parts that the adaptors are used for (understandable for any language), so it is a quick reference instead of having to read through so much literature. That can be an area for those who need further clarification can read. I just wanted to get to using the epilator, but instead had to make time to sit down and read the directions first. The product is a great size, fits well in my hand, doesn`t feel like I it is to big and clunky, and is easy to hold while in the shower. You don`t feel like your going to drop it cause your hands are wet. I was a little disappointed because it did not cut my hair very well, i would say i have medium to coarse hair and am a hairy person/woman overall. I felt like I had to wait until my hair was pretty long to be able to get a good shave, I tried it on my hairs on my legs that were only about 3 days out from their last shave and it did nothing. I tried different angles and hair growth directions even. Then I waited like 10 full days, and tried it both wet and dry, and I could feel it pulling out my hairs but it still was not making a noticeably clear section of skin. I tried all the adaptors on my different shaving areas and had some success, but still was not very impressed, it was also a bit painful, so that is a new sensation to get used to. I did finally figure out there are two shaving heads, so when I tried the other shaving head it did seem to shave a lot better, I shaved some pretty hair areas and it got very smooth. I prefer this adaptor way more than the epilator shaver, however the other adaptors don't fit with that old school shaver head. Also it seemed a bit time consuming to me because I had to go slow to make sure it got all the hairs. I almost prefer my shaving with my regular old shaver. I am still going to use the product again, I just have to plan out my shaving more with this than a regular old disposable shaver.
