Let’s be real! Facial and body hair is something a lot of us glamazons struggle with on the regular, and not everyone can be fortunate enough to get laser hair removal! So for everyone else, we turn to other methods like tweezing, shaving, waxing, and more.
This has been my dilemma – I’m always switching between a bunch of different techniques and can never commit to one that will #JUSTWORK! Some are great for convenience but don’t last long (sometimes my hair grows back within 24 hours!), while others are effective but time consuming (and #AintNobodyGotTimeForThat). Some hair removal methods even require you to hit up the spa or salon, but the idea of having to get ready and then trek back home afterwards does not make it worth it.
It’s taken me a while to figure this all out but I think I have finally found the perfect balance between all three! It’s the convenience of shaving, with the results of waxing all in one! Allow me to introduce you to the new SatinTouch Precision Epilator and Satinelle Prestige hair removal tools from Philips!
I have been using these two goodies for quite some time now – the SatinTouch for sensitive areas (like on my face) and the Satinelle Prestige on my body, primarily focusing on the legs and chest area. The results have been great and the convenience of the products themselves is amazing. The SatinTouch for the facial area is an accelerated version of tweezing with the smooth results of shaving, minus the extreme ripping and pulling pain of waxing! I have brought it to New York and Miami with me and it has been the best travel companion. While the Satinelle Prestige has been great for getting super smooth legs that last an entire trip, not having to constantly maintain my look throughout the week because of unwanted hair growth is such a relief! Especially since I’m always on the go! Now you may think I’m crazy because let’s be real, epilation isn’t exactly pain free, but it’s worth it for the results!
I normally like to perform the process early in the morning before the day starts, that way I have time to be precise with the hair removal process! And let’s face it… at the end of the day it’s still an epilator, so getting ready in the morning gives my skin the time it needs to heal, and when I apply make-up or any products to my skin, there will be no irritation! I have definitely learned that the key ingredient to success with the epilating process is to prep your skin with taking a nice shower (or bath!) and exfoliating prior to use! That way your pores are opened up and the extractions are that much easier! Pairing that with proper epilating technique equals amazing results, especially since both the devices firmly grab hair by the root!
