Get Beach Ready with Philips and Sarna

Now that we’re in the midst of beach season, a well packed beach bag is essential. Start with a great beach bag, Sarna skin products, sunblock, perfect pink polish and a towel. The only other thing you need for a day on the beach is  smooth hair free skin. I joined  the Philips Satin Perfect 30 day challenge to see how easy it can be to have smooth skin.

I hate the feeling of stubble so I end up shaving everyday to keep my legs smooth. I have thought about getting my legs waxed to save the daily pain, but the hefty price tag always keeps me from making the jump. When I had the chance to review the Philips Satin Perfect Epilator I was excited to see how well it works.

The  Philips Satin Perfect looks great and is really well made I was impressed how sturdy the unit is. It has two speed options, and comes with several different attachments that massage the skin and lift the hair to make the whole process easier. The textured ceramic disks  pull the hair out from the root. It also comes with an awesome set of lighted tweezers that make any plucking or clean up really easy. The kit  has a head for shaving and trimming, that turns it into an electric razor instantly and last but not least you get a little pouch to store all the goodies and make it extremely portable.

So the big question how bad does it hurt? Now pain is different for everyone and I would say I am in the middle leaning towards the wimpy side.  I love how much hair the epilator removed in just one stroke, with just a bit of a sting. It was a lot less painful that I had imagined.   The epilator vibrates a bit which helps it to soothe the skin, and helps the sting go away quickly.

The epilator can be used virtually anywhere on the body, including the legs, arms, and underarms. Obviously some areas will be more sensitive than others, so the degree of pain will vary depending on where you use it.

One thing I had to figure out was how to deal with the hair. The unit doesn’t collect the hair so the hair just floats around. I find using it in the bathtub (without water) is the easiest way to use it without any mess.

I am really happy with the Philips Satin Perfect, the pain was really minimal and the results are amazing. I did my first round a week ago and my skin is still smooth. Now my only question is why did I waste so much time shaving? I am excited to see the results the more I use it.

The Satin Perfect Deluxe Epilator removes body hair in sensitive areas, like under the arms; on hard-to-reach areas like knees and ankles; and on facial areas such as the eyebrows and upper lip using the illuminating smart tweezers. Its hypoallergenic, textured ceramic discs catch and remove even the finest hairs quickly and comfortably, leaving you with smooth skin for up to four weeks.

Efficient Epilation That’s Gentle on Your Skin
As gentle on skin as it is efficient, the epilator features an active hair lifter that makes even short hair stand up for easy epilation, while the massage system gently vibrates to stimulate and soothe skin. The speed control feature maintains an ideal epilation speed throughout the hair removal process.

Ceramic Discs Grab and Remove Fine Hairs
A built-in opti-light makes it easy to view fine hairs, and 32 textured ceramic discs effectively grip hair and prevent even the finest strands from slipping through the discs. The pivoting movement of the performance cap helps you keep the epilator at the ideal angle for best results.

After your glam day at the beach, revitalize your overly sun kissed (re: burned) skin with Sarna Original lotion. A steroid-free product, Sarna Original is designed to soothe the itch associated with sunburn via the cooling combination of menthol and camphor. It’s an essential for any beach bag, and also works great to stop the itch from the inevitable post-bonfire bug bites.

These are the must have lotions of summer. We are out camping at least two weeks a month and that leads to bug bites, burns and dry skin. Sarna lotion has been a lifesaver keeping post camping pain at bay. My daughter was attacked by mosquitos on our last trip and was crying the bites were so irritating. I applied Sarna original and instantly she felt better she was happy to get a break from the itch of the bites.

I got a bad sunburn on a little strip of my forehead I somehow missed with my sunblock. It was pretty tender and aloe wasn’t cutting it. I remembered I had the Sarna lotion and applied it and was amazed how fast the discomfort went away. Not to be out done the Sarna Sensitive Skin is also a really great product. My youngest has really sensitive skin and he gets a rash from even the slightest product change. I have been using the Sarna Sensitive on his skin post bath and his little dry, itchy spots have gone away. This duo is a lifesaver for any parent or outdoorsy person.

Sarna®Original

I have a very low threshold for pain, so this might work for me. Will definitely add to my beauty wishlist. I like the very detailed review that you provide on the Philips Satin Perfect. How does this compare to No No hair remover? Have you tried that before?
