How do I use the attachments of my Philips Satinelle Epilator?
Updated on 2021-11-16
Your Philips Satinelle Epilator may come with different attachments. Find out here how to use these attachments for the best epilating experience.
Replacing the attachments
Some attachments can be placed on top of the epilator head. For others, you need to remove the epilator head first and then attach the new head to the body of the epilator. Simply snap it onto the epilator body until you hear a click.
You can use the shaving head of your epilator to shave your legs, underarms and bikini line. While using the shaving head, move the device gently over your skin against the direction of hair growth.
When shaving your underarms, place your arm behind your head to stretch the underarm area, then move the device up and down and from left to right to cover all the hair growing in different directions.
For maximum shaving performance, clean the shaving unit after each use and replace the shaving head cutting unit once a year. This replacement part can be purchased on our website.
Trimming comb accessory
To trim hard-to-reach areas like your bikini zone, it is better to use the trimming comb accessory which comes with your epilator.
Efficacy cap accessory
The efficacy cap or the skin stretcher attachment help to keep the skin tight during epilation to reduce pain.
Bikini trimming head
This accessory can be used for sensitive areas such as the bikini. It is easy to use because of its compact design.
Delicate area cap accessory
Attach the delicate area cap onto the epilating head for precise epilating of delicate areas such as upper lip, bikini or armpit. The opening of the cap is optimised to be more gentle and precise so that you will only be able to epilate smaller areas.
Body exfoliation brush head
The body exfoliation brush helps to remove dead skin cells. It should be used before epilating, as it makes the skin smooth and makes epilation easier and less painful.
To attach the body exfoliation brush to your epilator, you have to remove the epilator head first. You can then attach the body exfoliation brush to the coupling unit and then attach it to the appliance handle.
If you use the body exfoliation brush 2–3 times a week, replace it every 3 months. This replacement part can be purchased on our website.
Some epilator models also come with a nylon exfoliation glove.
You can use this glove before epilating to remove dead skin around your hair follicles. This makes your skin feel soft and smooth and makes hair removal easier.
To use the glove, first make it wet and, if you like, apply a few drops of body wash or peeling lotion to it. Massage your skin with the glove in circular motions, applying gentle pressure.
Some models also come with a massage cap to ease the epilation sensation.
Please note that the attachments that come with your epilator vary per model. For accurate information about the attachments of your particular epilator model, refer to your user manual or contact us for further help.
