[Beauty] Philips Satinelle Epilator - Is The Pain Worth It?

I've been shaving my legs forever and just got my FIRST epilator from Philips. Why didn't I get one earlier? Honestly I'm really scared of the pain especially since I've tried waxing strips before and know how much it can hurt.
That familiar sound when you rip a waxing strip off with pieces of your skin stuck on it LOL But okay.. Anything for beauty right? xD Here goes!
Wow fancy-nya.. 
Exactly my first thought. Didn't epilators just have one button that says press to turn on the pain? The Philips Satinelle Advanced Wet and Dry Epilator comes with 2 speeds and the battery indicator blinks red when you need to recharge it with a cord. Each quick charge lasts approximately 40 minutes which I find reasonable since you won't be epilating often.
Check it outtt.. Don't underestimate this light. It will help you scan for every single hair strand on your body.
You can use it both dry and wet, lathered with shower foam. I prefer dry since I can aim properly but for more sensitive areas I use wet to lessen the sting.
Feel free to zoom in LOL wow my legs haven't felt so smooth in a loooong time! I did use waxing strips once and they also removed hair from the roots but they weren't 100% effective plus they left my skin so dry after. This is totally different!

After seeing how smooth my hairless leg is, I can now answer the question.
Yes, it is worth it!
The pain is not unbearable after all.. When you're new to eyebrow plucking it's also painful but somehow it fades after a while and you get used to it. Besides, hair grows back slower so you get to enjoy smooth skin longer! =D
Unlike waxing strips, there was barely any redness after using the epilator! I'm impressed..

P.S. I did try this on my bikini line and it's very effective but you should avoid it if you can't take the pain. Switch to the Shaving Head instead! =)
I still do apply body lotion afterwards to sayang back my skin and make it extra silky smooth.

5 body care heads

Because Philips understands that 1 device simply cannot be used on the whole body, they have provided 5 extra heads to cater to different body parts. Each head clicks on and off easily.

Facial Area Cap & Delicate Area Cap

For smaller areas like your face, underarm and bikini area, attach on the facial and delicate area caps for more accuracy and comfort.

Massage Cap

If you're new to epilating (me) or your skin is just really sensitive, attach the Massage cap to ease to pain. The rollers are also great to guide your hand and as they roll along, you can kinda trick your mind into feeling less pain.

Shaving Head

Don't wanna epilate? No problem! Switch to the shaving head and trimming comb for a close shave and added gentleness. I use this for spots where I just can't bear the pain. You can use both sides which is really convenient for your wrist and the middle part is for a smoother shave to remove the last bits.
The Shaving Head is actually the same as my Philips Ladyshave which I love. It gets close to the roots and isn't as damaging to skin as a regular shaver. I do prefer the S shape of the Satinelle though.

Trimming Comb

In case you ever want to keep some mystery or you're prone to ingrown hair, snap on the Trimming Comb so it doesn't shave all the way in.
