Rated 4 out of 5 by Nnnnnnnnn Expensive but effective
This is an excellent device. Does a good job of removing the hair from the roots. less painful than the other epilator I have used. My only concern was the price tag. It is never on sale. Good battery life between recharging. Overall a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lara Superb product!!!
This is the epilator I have been waiting for!!! It has a superb strength and epilates your body in as much the time that would take a normal shave, with the big difference that the Philips epilator will leave your skin smooth for days! I can now go on long trips without having to worry about shaving.
Given that this is not the first epilator I have tried in the market, I was a bit skeptic about the fact that this epilator only has 32 tweezers compared to others that may have 48. Buy boy I was wrong, the Philips epilator tweezers are so powerful and gentle at the same time that it epilates so smoothly without missing any hairs, and the normal redness that comes after epilating, was even lesser compared to other epilators. It almost feels as if you’ve had a wax done, as if you were born with no ugly hairs at all!
This epilator is also very ergonomic, very light and easy to handle. It is almost like a minimalist design. It is nicely packed with a white pouch to keep, a cleaning brush, a charging plug and one manual of instructions. It didn’t feel overwhelming as with other packages where you don’t know where to start.
I am sticking with this epilator, no more shopping around for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by famosamos8 works better than I thought it would.
I was very impressed with how easy it was to use. The hair on my legs did not come back for about three to four weeks. I also did not have any bruising on my legs at all.

I got my epilator a week back and this was my first one. Online reviews encouraged me to try this one and I am glad I did! Let me give you a helpful review for all new users like me who want to try it.
1. PAIN QUOTIENT: Unfortunately there is no unit for pain measurement but let me tell you that if you can take the pain of a waxing tug, YOU CAN EPILATE.
Online reviews on pain factor are many time baseless with nothing to capare it to. Let me tell you, its no more than someone pinching you. Only difference is that here you are anticipating the pinch which makes it harder. I suggest try on a tough patch of skin, like your knee maybe, before you venture to your legs. Proceed slow. And then its not diffucult. I use it now for hands, legs and underarms.
I dont want to give you an idea that its very easy and painless. It hurts definately. BUT its bearable. And the more you get used to it, the lesser painful it gets.
2. DESIGN and EASE OF USE: Just a brilliant and simple product. No hassle device. Easy pictoral guide (I read just the essential and skipped most of the boring word-to-word directions)
9/10 for user friendliness
3. Value for money: May seem a little steep initially but its a one time investment. And completely worth it when it negates all those parlor visits for waxing.
VERDICT: GO FOR IT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Julie Very Happy!
Due to hormonal imbalance, I have a lot of facial hair. I've tried shaving and plucking and neither one give me the results I get with this epilator. I am so happy with it. It takes longer for the hair to grow back and it leaves my skin looking smooth and not bumpy.
It takes a little practice to use, and the hair has to be a certain length. It doesn't seem to get every hair, but pretty close. Any extra can be plucked if necessary, but I find it's usually because it's not long enough.
The razorhead attachment was a plus! I didn't realize how much better it was at shaving under my arms versus a regular razor! I love it.
I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ginnia Love the product!!
I have excessive facial hair, and have been tweezing for years -- then I found this item!! I LOVE IT!! Haven't used all the attachments that came with it yet, but so far, so good.
The light seems to be on the wrong side for facial hair, however -- seems geared for legs more. A pair of lighted tweezers came with the product, and they are simply wonderful..

Rated 5 out of 5 by DPSC Wonderful epilator
I had previously used one of the original epilators, which finally died. I am so glad it did! This one is much easier to use, gets more hair more quickly, and is less painful. Actually, there is no real pain, just a slight burning sensation.
