Philips HP6576 Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator is the only epilator with ceramic tweezers, designed to be used on the entire body. Although it has only 32 tweezers, it is the most powerful epilator on the market, reaching up to 81,000 tweezes per second.
The epilator doesn't come alone in the box. The extra accessories for the actual epilator body and even an extra device for sensitives areas will intrigue anyone who wants to have more than an epilator at home.
Although it has fewer tweezers than other epilators which are its competition, this doesn't mean that it isn't efficient. The power inside the device moves these tweezers very fast, making them pull out even the shorter hairs. We associate the number of tweezers with efficiency, but all the time, our conception should be true. Because if these tweezers aren't of quality, they can do more harm than good, instead of pulling the hair from the root, it can break them. A small number of tweezers connected to a powerful epilator's body is the perfect combination for an efficient epilation.
Because it is so powerful, my recommendation is not to use it on your face. For this area, Philips has included a separate pair of illuminated tweezers, like the size of a lipstick. This item has a small mirror on the side, which can help you to find even the stubborn, short hairs to pluck them out. Some customers love the LED light and mirror accessories.
It has an optimal performance cap pivots for optimal skin contact, an active massage system, the built-in opti-light to reveal tiny hairs clearly, a 2 speed button with a locking feature and a curved head that follows any contour of your body for a better epilating, removing the hair quickly and effectively on the first pass.
The product has different caps for the epilator head. Also, it can be transformed in a shaver and trimmer, using the shaver head. These heads are smaller, so the process will take a while. The wide epilating head makes it difficult to use it on knees, underarms and bikini line. Even the caps for this head (basic cap, optimal performance cap, active hair lifter with active massage cap) are designed for how experienced you are, not for different areas of the body, which would be a logical thing to do, right?! The beginner should use the optimal performance cap or the active hairlifter cap because they slightly reduce the pain.
Coming back to the ceramic tweezers appearance, it has been proven by the customers to be slightly more comfortable, therefore less painful on the skin than the normal, metal tweezers. These tweezers are coated with hypoallergenic silver ions, which prevent the growth of bacteria. Although it can remove most of the hair in a single pass, it is more difficult to catch shorter hair, so you have to insist more.
The producer promises that it can last up to 40 minutes wire-free and one quick hour to recharge. Compared with other epilators, this model can be used while charging. If we go further into comparisons, this epilator is very loud, it can be painful and difficult to use in some areas, not to mention its price, which is high.
This epilator is not a wet and dry model, therefore it is not waterproof, it is not recommended to be used in the shower or bath. Instead, it has a washable head, which is good because it can be detached and cleaned under running water for better hygiene.

I love how the company advertised this epilator.
- The battery doesn't last for a long while, and if you want to epilate a large area of your body, this aspect can be considered a drawback. But it can be used also while it is plugged in.
- It is not waterproof, which is a standard option for many epilators nowadays.
- Because it is a powerful epilator, it is loud. If you want a more discreet epilator, you should choose another one, like Panasonic ES-ED90-P, which is the quietest epilator on the market at this time.
Although it is expensive, it is still one of the best epilators on the market and it comes highly recommended. If you don't mind the price (around 100$) and you want the extra attachments that this epilator has, he should buy it immediately from the best retail store.
