Can The Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Epilator Offer The “Deluxe” Performance Buyers Expect?
Many of us want more from our hair and beauty products these day than one simple function and the Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator hopes to cater to this need with an interesting and versatile looking system.
This cordless device can run on forty minutes of charge, has textured ceramic discs that allegedly “catch and remove even the finest hairs” and is ergonomic and pivotable for use on most body parts.
Can this epilating, trimming, shaving and massaging system combine to turn this product a fully beneficial and multifunctional hair removal and beauty system?
Are these different functions well received and what other benefits does this Philips HP6576 Epilator have that could add to its appeal?
The range of attachments with this Philips epilator, which is larger than any other model in the range and is arguably a key selling point, has received a lot of positive feedback in customer reviews.
This is particularly true of the tweezer, with a surprisingly large proportion of users showing a lot of love for it, but there is also praise for the razor attachment and trimmer. The tweezers are surprisingly stylish, come in their own little tube with a mirror and include a handy LED light – a light that is apparently so bright that some are considering using it as a torch.
The razor offers a smooth finish and the trimming attachment cleverly vibrates to lift the hairs before cutting them. Add to this the massaging head and it is easy to see why this is viewed as such a versatile device.
On top of this, buyers have also left positive comments about some of the other minor features and details and the way they add to the overall experience.
This good looking device has two different speeds for different areas of the body, the body is said to be lightweight and comfortable to hold, there is a locking feature for extra security and even though it does not take long to charge up, it can even be used while you are doing so.
Additional features that have been highlighted are the integrated light which offers great illumination of finer hairs – even though it does seem to do so with an odd yellow tone – and the vanity bag that helps store all the components and makes the product more portable.
Are there any problems and disadvantages that have been noted with the performance or design of this Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Epilator?
As you may have noticed from the review so far, there is no mention of the word epilator in the section about the advantages and positive feedback. This is simply because while the attachments have been a pleasant surprise, the epilator left a lot to be desired.
The most commonly mentioned criticisms of this epilation system are that it seems to break more hairs than it cleanly pulls out, meaning the job takes even longer, and that you seem to need a high pain threshold in order to use it.
Some argue that the pain is worth it for the results but others are not so sure, particularly those that have experienced bleeding and other negative reactions. The specification mentions hypo-allergenic ceramic discs for a more beneficial result but some users with sensitive skin have noticed red bumps and itching.
Other flaws with the design of this system are the fact that the main body can generate a fair bit of heat during a long session and it cannot be used in the shower.
Summary: if the epilating function is so poorly received, can this Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Epilator Epilator still be recommended for purchase?
In answer to the question of whether this is a beneficial, multifunctional hair removal and beauty system, the verdict would have to be that it is relatively so, but not to the extent that is advertised and that buyers expect.
Ultimately, this Philips Satin Perfect Epilator is a good razor with some impressive details and extra functions but a fairly average epilator.
When it comes to an endorsement, this product is probably best recommended to those that want a reliable, high-end shaving system, and are perhaps only looking to experiment with epilation, rather than those that are deliberately seeking out a top quality, painless and reliable epilator.
