Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator Review
This epilator is a great value considering everything that comes with it. If you are not limited by a certain budget, then we encourage you to get this one and enjoy the shaver attachment and great tweezers that are included. While this is one of our favorites, it does have a couple of minor downfalls that can easily be overlooked.
- Hypo-allergenic, textured ceramic discs
- “Active hairlifters”
- Active massage system
- 32 tweezers
- Shave, trim and style attachment
- Washable epilation head
Overall Rating: 4.5/5
Price Range: $100-$150
We use the number of tweezers in the head as one of the main indicators of how effective an it is. As you know, an epilator uses multiple, tiny tweezers to pull out hair at a fast rate. Typically, the more tweezers in the head, the more chances of the hair getting caught and pulled out.
This one has a 32-tweezer head attachment. The ceramic textured discs make for a gentle, less painful epilating experience. The active massager and hairlifter provide that extra assistance needed to get the flattened hairs up and your skin soothed while it pulls the hairs out. While the massagers do not take away all of the pain, we believe, they do play a part in making the experience better. Having said that, the massager attachments on this do get our attention.
We do not necessarily believe that being able to use an epilator in the shower automatically makes it more superior. The Philips HP6576 Sati Perfect is meant only for use in a dry environment. This product is not to be used submerged or near running water. While your skin may be more relaxed under warm water, we believe that it’s really more about personal preference.
We would recommend this one only for use on the bikini and underarm areas. Use on facial hair is not advised. Not to say you absolutely cannot use it on your face, but it may not get the fine hairs. The tweezers that come with this product are great, though. The light attached to the tweezers makes it great for use in cleaning up eyebrows and upper lip hair.
We rate this epilator high for ease of use and handling ability. It has a very sleek and ergonomic design and light weight makes it easy to hold. Although the tweezer count is less than the 48 we prefer, they are effective in hair removal. We like having the ability to choose from two speeds on this device. This can help in easing the pain depending on where you are using it.
This is a cordless device which makes it even more user friendly, in our opinion. The number one best feature of this model is that it can be used while attached to the cord and charging. We love this option! Having to wait for an epilator to charge can be a pain, especially if you tend to forget to charge it after each use.
Being able to use this product while plugged in can save you lots of frustration and time if you are in a bind. Let us tell you that having the freedom to use this one without a cord can come in handy when you know you will need it while traveling or if you would like to use it in an area where there is no plug available. It’s great for times that ladies want to epilate outside on the balcony (I know I do), while out camping, or somewhere that is more private that does not have a plug available.
Generally, it takes it an hour to charge if completed depleted. Once fully charged, it can run for about 40 minutes. This is typically a perfect amount of time to epilate your underarms and bikini area. You will have to to plug it in if you want to get your legs done at the same time, so that’s something to consider.

It’s great that the head is removable. Being able to take it off to wash can really help keep your epilator more hygienic. We are true believers that having a clean device is important in preventing infection on your skin as well as making it more effective at what it does. When the epilator is more effective, it is less likely to pull at the hair and cause ingrown hairs. It is a domino effect of negative things if you fail to keep it clean for each use.
This one comes with multiple attachments making it available to you for more of your needs. The shaver attachment is highly praised and even a blessing to those that cannot epilate very often. Having the shaving option is like having two product for one which make this a better value.
The light that is attached to this device is one of it’s best features. Being able to easily see some of those thin hairs can help you achieve smoother results. I can tell you that, having the light even outside in the sun is beneficial.
Another positive aspect of this device that helps get more hairs easily is the pivoting head. Being able to move it around the areas of your skin smoothly, and effortlessly is key in getting the job done faster and with great results.
When you are done using it, you have a cute little travel bag to store it in. You may think this is trivial, but keeping your product in the bag will help it last longer and keep it clean for your next use.
The battery life on this model is not quite up to par for us. Again, you can use it while plugged in so this is not the end of the world. As with any epilator, you will need to prepare your skin by exfoliating, etc., in order to minimize ingrown hairs. Some may complain that because this one is not water proof it makes it less desirable and versatile.
If you have short hairs mixed in with long hairs, it may take multiple passes to get everything. This may not even be that effective if your hairs are too short. On the other hand if the hairs are too long, this epilator may just break it and even cause more ingrown hairs. Another downside to using this particular model is that it is loud. If you are looking for a more discrete product, this may not be the right one for you.
Overall, we do love this epilator and everything it comes with. It’s not our top rated one because it is a bit on the higher price but has less tweezers in the head. If you don’t really mind the money aspect, but want the added extras and something easy to use, we recommend this for you.
