Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Review – Is it actually perfect?
As one of the best rated epilators coming from Philips, the Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator is getting more and more popular on the international market. That’s because it’s high quality and useful features. However, the thing that’s not perfect about the Satin Perfect epilator is its look. This is considered as one of the least appealing epilators, but as long as it does its job perfectly, you shouldn’t care about how it looks like.
After all, not many people will get to see it, since not many people will be there when you will use the Philips Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator. One of the most famous girls who is promoting this epilator is Alessandra Ambrossio, a popular Victoria Secret model. So let’s dive into the details of this epilator and see if it’s the best pick for you.
One of the benefits of using the Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator is the fact that you will save a lot of time. The solution brought by Philips for the time issue is simple. They created epilators with bigger heads, so that the area of skin epilated would be wider, removing more hair than the previous generations of Philips epilators.
Another noticeable thing about this model is its ceramic discs that are meant to replace the classic metallic tweezers we all got used to from all the other products of this category. The main benefit of the ceramic disks is that they are both more durable and friendlier to the skin. Also, due to the superior grip of the ceramics, the new Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator is able to get rid of those little hairs other epilators can’t handle.
Two speeds are included in this epilator. The higher speed should be used only when you have experience using the Philips Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator and it’s mainly appropriate for epilating large areas. For the new users and for areas, such as the bikini line, the first speed is more appropriate. Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe is also bringing you another useful feature, the opti-light. Even if it seems useless at a first glance, the opti-light of this epilator will help you spot those missed hairs by highlighting them.
With the new Philips epilator, you will be able to reach more skin in one movement than before. The reason for it is the new pivoting head, meant to follow the curves and lumps of your body. Also, there is no cord needed, because the battery allows a 40 minute usage with a 1 hour charge, and 40 minutes are more than enough for a full body epilation with the efficiency of this little helper.
The most interesting and desired feature in this epilator is the massaging property. Basically, it features a vibrating band that will stimulate the skin to offer an improved epilation experience, reducing the pain and keeping you safe from rashes or other reactions caused by hair plucking.
The additional trimming attachment of this epilator can be used to shorten the length of the hair before the epilation. It’s ideal for trimming the bikini line and the underarms, but it also comes in handy after a long winter, when the hair on your legs is just too long to be handled by the tweezers of the epilator alone.
Another accessory of this epilator is the hair lifter attachment. The job of an epilator is to grab the heirs and pluck them out of their roots. However, some of the smaller hairs are too laid flat on the skin, making it impossible for the tweezers of the epilator to have a good grip on them. This accessory will lift those hairs up and help you achieve a 100% hairless skin.
This is by far one of the most complete and useful epilators. Its features and accessories are not just an attempt of the manufacturer to make it look cooler or stand out from the crowd. As the biggest pro, I might choose the combination between the opti-light and the hair-lift attachment. The first will highlight the hairs you might miss and the second one will pluck them out efficiently. Other positive characteristics that are worth noted are the battery life, reduced charging time and the ceramic discs.
The sound it makes, because of the high resonance of the ceramic hear, can be a little too loud for some people. Also, its price it’s a little spicy, even if it’s justified. Regardless of the massaging band, the epilation with this device is still a painful experience. As a last and maybe the worst downside of this device is the fact that it’s not waterproof, which should be a must since these devices are meant to be used in a watery environment (bathroom).
On the high profile websites, such as Amazon or Walmart, most of the reviewers are offering 4.5 out of 5 stars for this epilator. Most of the mare complaining about the fact that it’s not a waterproof device. They are also reporting that the pain felt during the epilation is higher when using this device, even when compared with epilators that are not offering a massaging band. Maybe if the device could have been used in combination with cream or in the bathtub, the pain would be more bearable. The sound is also an issue for most of the customers.
The price is a little higher than the average of the market and it’s justified by the many accessories that come with it. However, the high cost of this device is not justified by its performances and properties. The hair lifter, trimmer and opti-light are really doing a good additional job. But, is it wise to give up on basic features and accept more pain for removing some of the very little hairs?
