Electric shavers sound mighty convenient but they also make me nervous! The thought of buzzing blades across my skin is quite intimidating but so is the battle against body hair.
But it's summer and I'm a shorts and skirts kinda girl so the hair has got to go!
Luckily Philips recently sent me their new SatinShave Prestige - a feminine pastel pink and white electric shaver that looks pretty harmless.
I tested it out for three weeks before writing this review and here are 4 reasons why I won't go back to regular razors or disposables...
1) The SatinShave eliminates rashes, razor burns and all that unattractive stuff
You can use the SatinShave every day but for me, twice a week was enough to combat unwanted body hair. Hold your skin taunt, RELAX and let it do it's work (you can actually hear the hairs chopping away so no need to apply extra pressure). The job was done just as fast as shaving with my regular razor minus any irritations.
2) Wet or dry - your choice!
You can easily use this shaver in the shower (with or without shaving gel) but I prefer to use it on dry skin (which was a pleasant surprise) since it offered a closer shave. As a busy mom, dry shaving really comes in handy during those in-between days when I need a quick touchup or when I'm traveling, it's so convenient to be able to shave on the go wherever I am.
3) Bless that bikini trimmer!
Pop on the specially designed trimmer head and I was able to get up close and personal with my lady bits without the nicks and bumps.
4) Save time & money - who doesn't want to do that right?
Replace the foils and cutters once a year and clean them once monthly for maximum shaver performance. While disposables and blades may only cost a few bucks each, do the math and you'll see how fast that adds up over the year!
Curious about electric shavers? We have one of these beauties to give away to a lucky winner!
