Philips Satinelle Epilator HP6422/02 UK Review
I guess you will already know the name Philips as they are a very well known maker of high quality electrical goods. They are a better known for making men's electric razors and aren't not so well known for epilators.
This Satinelle model Epilator is an entry level unit and is also one of the best sellers. This is not always an ideal combination as usually the cheapest model is unlikely to be the best one and just because a lot of people buy it, doesn't mean that its good. However there has tob e a starting point in every range.
That being said we wont hold the low price against it. If its good, its good. Keep in mind though that it will undoubtably lack some of the features of the more expensive models. For as start this is not cordless and it has to be plugged into the mains to work.

What Buyers Say About the Philips Satinelle Epilator
There are hundreds of buyer reviews for this product ranging from really good to not great. They tell us that this is a perfect example of an entry level product that works very well at removing hair but it totally basic. It leaves the skin smooth and doesn't cause much irritation so as an epilator for sensitive areas, it works great.
A few buyers gave a poor review and they found that it lacked the build quality of the more expensive models. In essence they thought this epilator was a bit flimsy though no one complained of it actually breaking. It would also go up in the estimations if it was cordless.
There are always one or two people who are never happy but its plain to see that this product has a good overall rating with a very low level of poor reviews. It seems it works really well and the extra shaver head is really handy.
75% of buyers have rated it 4 or 5 out of 5 and this is excellent for an entry level model at this price. This is a good epilator to start with.

This is an entry level or starter model so don't expect all the bells and whistles of a £100 epilator. Its the cheapest in the range but you would know that from the build quality. Then again its the cheapest in the range and it works very well
Tips for first time epilator users
The right time for epilation is in the evening. If you go to bed with a few bumps or irritations they will be gone by the morning. You should prepare by taking a warm showing an all over exfoliation. This helps to relax the skin and reduce ingrowing hairs.
The Braun Silk Epil SkinSpa exfoliating brush is an excellent product and it gets 4x better results than a manual peeling.
Hold your epilator loosely and naturally a 90 degree angle to your legs and move the epilator going against the direction of hair growth. Not much pressure is required, just touch the epilator lightly on the skin. Braun Silk Epil’s cooling glove and massaging rollers will minimise any discomfort and once you get the hang of it, epilation becomes virtually painless.
The number one thing to remember is always moisturise after epilation and never before. This will give the best results and get set for soft, silky skin in the morning.
