Best Epilator in India: Philips Satinelle Advanced Epilator BRE210 Review, Price & Buy Online India
Hair removal has been one of the constant headaches in my life. From waxing to epilation, shaving to depilatory creams, there are many options for removing hair and everyone has their own favorite. Being an experimental person, I’ve tried pretty much all the methods to find the one that I am most comfortable with and my top 2 methods are definitely waxing and epilation. They do hurt, no doubt but these are the only methods that give smooth, hair free days for a good amount of time. Philips recently launched a new range of epilators and I shall be reviewing the Satinelle Advanced Epilator BRE210 today.
Price: Rs 5,995
Can be bought online at Flipkart & Amazon India
Enjoy long lasting smoothness with Philips Satinelle Advanced epilator. Gently removes hairs at the root, as short as 0.5mm. Hairs grow back thinner and more slowly to enjoy up to 4 weeks hair-free skin. Use wet or dry.
The new Philips Satinelle Advanced Epilator comes in a pink carboard box which contains the product along with its attachments and a white pouch to store them. Now, I know I’m nitpicking a bit but for Rs 6,000 I was expecting the packaging to be a bit more fancy as the last time I bought a Philips Epilator, it was so beautifully packaged and had this gorgeous satin pouch that I still own. Anyhoo, since one rarely stores these cardboard boxes (unlike me) I guess it isn’t much of an issue.

The Satinelle Advanced Epilator is a battery operated device which comes with 2 speed settings. I love the fact that is cordless as the previous model I own isn’t so convenient to use because of the cord which keeps getting tangled anyway. The best part about the particular model is that it can be used both wet and dry so you can easily use it in the privacy of your shower without a worry!
Besides, the epilation head, the product also comes with a shaving attachment and a sensitive cap for epilating the delicate areas like the under arms and the bikini line. A unique aspect is the skin stretcher attachment, I’m not sure if other brands provide the same but its the first time I’ve gotten it with an epilator and I must say it does help in epilating the hair without the fuss of you having to stretch the skin yourself, making the hair removal process much easier.

Waxing vs Epilation
Now coming to the comparison, when it comes to the pain, personally I feel waxing and epilation hurt the same. I’ve heard that some women find epilation a bit more painful but on areas like the arms and legs I find it more comfortable than waxing. The biggest advantage I feel is the convenience. My sister who recently embraced motherhood finds it almost impossible to find time for herself with a naughty infant and a trip to the parlour is hard for her. She recently switched to epilation and her life has become much, much easier.
The Philips Satinelle Epilator manages to remove hair as short as 0.5 mm which waxing cannot. The wide epilation head and high tweezer motions per second of the Philips Advanced Epilator, results in quick and easy hair removal. The epilator also comes with a small brush to clean the epilating head.
Philips Satinelle range offers 3 epilators which are designed to offer complete hair removal. These gadgets are ergonomic, compact and hygienic. The range offers epilators priced between Rs 2495 to Rs 5995, thus a model to suit every girl’s budget.
