Philips Satinelle Essential corded epilator gives you soft, smooth skin. Unlike disposable razors or depilatories, Philips Satinelle epilator removes hair from the roots and is gentle on your skin. Complete with two speed settings and an ergonomic grip for comfortable handling, this epilation system removes hair as short as 0.5 millimeter. However, please note that epilation is easier and more comfortable when the hair has the optimum length of 3-4 mm. The 21 hypoallergenic discs and a removable, washable head ensure a hygienic hair removal experience.
