How do I use my Philips SatinShave?

Published on 08 December 2022
You can use the appliance to shave your legs and body. The product is suitable for use in the bath or shower, but you can also use it dry. Use the appliance on clean skin. You can exfoliate your skin a few days before shaving. Exfoliating removes the dead skin around your hair follicles and makes it easier to remove hair. It is essential to check the shaving foil to see if it is not dirty, damaged, or worn out. A faulty foil will cause the product’s performance to decline or even cause skin irritation. If it is damaged, it needs to be replaced immediately. Please see the video below for more information on using your SatinShave.
 

Wet and dry use

For best results, use the product dry to trim hairs. Place the product on your body, so the attachment or accessory is in complete contact with the skin. Move the product slowly against the direction of hair growth. Allow the product to obtain catch all the hairs for a smooth result. When you use the product on sensitive areas, stretch the skin with your free hand. When you use it on your underarms, raise your arm and put your hand on the back of your head to stretch the skin.

When using the device on wet skin, rinse the head regularly to remove hairs and ensure it continues gliding smoothly over your skin. Make sure your skin is thoroughly wet with water. Gently pat your skin dry after use. Consider wet hairs tend to stick more to the skin. If you want to use creams or body lotion, apply them after you have used the product. Please refer to the video below for more information on epilating or shaving when dry.
 

Aftercare

You may apply an (alcohol-free) Aloe Vera cream/lotion or an after-sun crème on your skin. Also, allow some adjustment time and give the skin time to recover between sessions. Clean the appliance thoroughly to remove all the hairs on its head and leave it to air-dry (See FAQ: How do I clean my Philips SatinShave). For more information on aftercare, please refer to the video below.
