Every woman should feel beautiful. If you’ve ever met me, you know I am passionate about inspiring women to know their worth and see their beauty.
Sometimes a little “Me Time” is just what a woman needs to be able to see how beautiful she really is.
When Philips contacted me about an amazing “Girls Night In” giveaway for my readers, they also let me choose to review a product. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something new. I decided on the Philips Santinelle Soft Sensitive total body epilator. I really had NO idea what to expect as I had never used an epilator before.
The girls were in bed and hubby was out at a meeting so I decided to put on my favorite music, dim the lights a bit and try out this epilator. The night before I exfoliated my skin using the exfoliation glove that came in the package.
I must admit it was not exactly what I was expecting. In fact, I worried that I may let out a little scream and wake the girls. I read over the directions and made sure to follow them closely. It was a bit tough to complete the first leg, and the second (I admit, I may not be the toughest woman) but I did it. I am glad I used the included ice-pack because it really helped to sooth the burning feeling and I was surprised that the redness on my legs did not last long.
As you know with my reviews, I’m honest. Although using the Philips Santinelle Soft Sensitive total body epilator was not how I was expecting my “relaxing evening” to be, I’m really glad I did not write it off. My hair was removed from the root…which left my skin silky smooth for weeks, not just days. I was so happy with the results that I decided to try it again and by the second time I used the epilator my legs were not nearly as sensitive as the first. I think my legs just had to get used to it, just like the first time as a teen when I decided to pluck my eyebrows and couldn’t stop the tears and now I feel no pain at all. I was reading on the Philips website that hair grows in cycles and after the 3rd time using the epilator the hair grows back less and is more fine. I look forward to seeing how it feels after I keep using it. Yes, I can actually see myself continuing to use the Philips Santinelle Soft Sensitive total body epilator! I love not having to shave my legs so often!
Everyone has a different pain threshold and from other reviews I have read it seems that only a small percentage of people find it to be very painful. Have you all used an epilator before?
The Philips Santinelle Soft Sensitive total body epilator is not a part of the Girls Night In Giveaway, but if you are looking to have smooth legs for more than a few day you should give it a try!
