Rated 5 out of 5 by Drasine Best one yet!
This review is based on a free sample I received for review purposes.
At the outset of this review I believe it is important to state that I am an experienced expilator user.
My initial reaction? I was horrified to find so much in the way of attachments/attendant pieces in the box, assuming the worst, that this was going to be a complicated undertaking. But, after a quick glance at the instructions, which contained the parts/numbers with depictions/explanations for use, I relaxed and was happy to begin my testing as all of the attachments made perfect sense ... with a beautiful silky pouch to hold everything neatly, I must add.
First let me say I loved the weight of the epilator, and especially the feel of its very ergonomical handle, so comfortable in my hand, and probably my favorite aspect along with the fact that it is cordless. (Other epilators I have tried were awkward to use and corded, which was challenging)
And, if appearance could win an award, this product would definitely qualify as it is quite attractive. (None of my other epilators even came close to being so elegant!)
Everything about this product was user-friendly, from ease of assembly, to the power button plus two different speed buttons right in front (all lighted), easy to find/reach without even looking, to the fact that this can be used both wet and dry, important to me based on use with other brands which were missing this critical feature.
Now as to the product's epilating performance, that, too, captured high marks. It quickly and efficiently removed hairs with a minimum of what I call epilation *twinges*.
Relative to the shaving head, this was a nice surprise for me, as other epilators did not offer this feature, which means that this dual function eliminates the need for two different appliances, and allows one to quickly go from epilating to shaving in a one task, time-saving period.
I should also mention that, although it's effortless switching from one accessory to another, the facial, delicate area and efficiency caps were of least importance to my personal use, but I believe these will be wonderful accessories for others who will use them.
Although I had no use for the trimmers, I very much enjoyed using the body massage and exfoliation accessories, which never came with any epilator I previously used.
I found little room for improvement, though if I had to select something it would likely be the three caps, which I thought were a bit too thick, though the concept was very good.
In summary, this product by far exceeded expectations, especially given my previous experience with epilators, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone in the market for such an item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SusanM Good product
I received a free sample of the Philips Prestige Epilator to review and I would like to share my results. The overall product design is well thought out and easy to handle and interchange the attachments. There is a good assortment of attachments to choose from as well. I found them all easy to switch between both wet and dry. Being able to use the epilator dry or wet is a definite plus. the epilator charges fast and holds the charge for a few uses in between. I found that hair needs to be at least a 1/4` long in ordeerf or the epilator to grab the hair enough to remove it. A few pass overs are required for a smooth effect. Seems to take a bit longer than just shaving the hair. Because this unit has multi attachments, I would recommend this model for it`s versatility

I received the Phillips Epilator free, to use and review. I have used other epilators before, so I was very cautious. I do have to say though, that as soon as I opened the package, I loved the way it looked. A beautiful high quality look. It fit great in my hands and had a good weight to it. Very easy to maneuver. It also had several heads that are easily interchangeable. I haven`t used them all but I can`t wait. This epilator really works. I`ve used it twice. Once in the shower and once out. I had smooth legs for almost an entire week, which is super convenient. Makes my morning shower much quicker since I don`t have to shave my legs. Overall, I am very pleased with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about purchasing an epilator. Try it... you`ll love it!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by syzma Way to many features and hard to understand.
I received a free sample of this Philips Satinelle Prestige Epilator to review. My feelings on this product are by no means influenced by this.
After receiving this epilator I was excited to begin using it. I have an epilator and use it on a monthly basis for removing excess hair on face and body, so getting to use a new one was going to be an adventure. First off, the instructions were very hard to understand and long. There were many attachments and not very much info on what to use for what. I tried for several days to re-read and understand the instructions and even had my husband read and see if he could explain the directions to me. Not much better at that than I. I finally gave up and just decided to start using the different attachments and see what worked. I found a couple that I liked and will stick with those. This epilator worked pretty good although I think it has way to many pieces for my liking. I don't need something that gives me a massage. Husband does that! Thank you Philips, next model please make a bit more simple.

***I received this product for free from Philips for the purpose of an open and honest review. The opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.***
I love the Philips Satinelle Prestige Epilator ! It was fully charged when it arrived. I would have never thought something so pretty would be so easy to handle! It can be used in and out of the shower however I found it to be most effective right after I get out from a hot shower. This epilator is very lightweight and easy to use. It is rechargeable and there is no cord getting in the way while I`m using it. It comes with several attachments which are very useful and an added bonus. It takes off a lot more hairs a lot faster, making the whole process faster as a whole so that`s another plus. What I noticed was, compared to my old epilator; this one takes out longer hairs without breaking them. I found that my legs are much smoother after I use my Philips.
Now for someone who hasn`t used an epilator before, the initial first sensation may be a bit hard to stand. This gets easier as you become comfortable with the product. The device is cleaned easily and is easy to hold and has a nice grip, Please read instructions thoroughly before using. It definitely is more painless than other models I have used in the past. I am very pleased with this product. It is a very effective machine and it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Donnap highly recommend
I received a free sample to use for this review.
The lightweight wand fits nicely in my hand. A gently shaped tweezer head conforms perfectly to body contours. Hair is removed efficiently with minimal to no discomfort while the light exposes any stubborn strays which need an extra pass. Little thing that helps a lot.
Easy head exchange makes multi use and cleaning a breeze.
The shave/trim head worked easily. I normally use an epilator or blade shaver and felt the shaver left a little stubble on my legs. Maybe this is normal for an electric shaver? I especially like the wet/dry option for the bikini area.
The exfoliating brush feels great on my chest and shoulders. Shorter bristles and more power left my skin feeling like a day at the spa.
I doubt I'll ever use the massage head. Seems like a silly addition.
I've used several epilators over the years and I'm not easily impressed. This is a great product - comfortable,thorough,efficient, easy. I highly recommend this epilator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Judie24 Much Improved!
In exchange for doing this review, I received a free sample of the Philips Satinelle Prestige wet and dry Epilator.
There are many heads to this device which I really appreciate because the massage head is a wonderful added bonus. The hair removal heads are many and can be a bit confusing.I will more than likely stick to one or two as opposed to constantly switching heads. The #7 efficiency cap seems to work best and fastest for me.The exfoliator head feels terrific and removes dead cells and leaves my skin smooth and silky. I`m not sure how many times I will take advantage of this head but it sure feels great!
The rechargeable battery did not last a full 40 minutes for me as the box stated but being cordless is an added plus. The travel pouch keeps all of the parts in one place.
Overall, I did like this Epilator as it is a great improvement over previous ones that I have used
