Philips HP6509 Satinelle Soft Sensitive Total Body Epilator with Shaving Attachment

For Christmas I got an epilator, I had wanted to try one for a while so my sister decided to get me one. I got the
Philips HP6509 Satinelle Soft Sensitive Total Body Epilator with Shaving Attachment, there are a number of pros and cons with this epilator.

I'll start with the pros: 

There are a number of attachments for underarm and bikini line which are useful. The attachment for doing your legs is also good as it has a massage function to help sooth the leg after epilating. 

I don't have to shave my legs every 2 days so that is a definite benefit. It claims that you can get weeks from epilating, I would not say weeks but I definitely can get a week from epilating which I would consider good since I usually only get 2 days from shaving.  

I comes with a nice small bag that fits the epilator, the cable and the attachments which I like as it keeps everything together. It makes it easy to travel with too, if you are going somewhere. 

Now onto the cons:

The pain from epliating is not for the faint hearted. I didn't find it very painful when I started however the longer I did it the less I was able to tolerate. This lead me to trying something different. I did half of one leg and then left a few hours and processed with the other half. I felt that this was less painful and meant I could use it to do both legs. 

I thought before I picked this one that is was rechargeable however that is not the case and it has to be plugged in at all times. Therefore not suitable if you want to do it in the bathroom.

I would buy this again. I like that I get a week of not having to shave or use a cream to remove unwanted hair.  And although it is painful to begin with it does become bearable the more that you do it. Also ensuring that the hair is not to long reduces the pain.

Airport Shopping

I'm going on holidays on Saturday and this, of course, means that there will be duty free shopping. There are a few beauty related items that I want to get and I'm sure that there are a number other things that I will see when I get there. I have a 6 hour layover so I will have plenty of shopping time. 

I had wanted these first two things for Christmas and that was not to happen. The first is the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. I have wanted to try this for a long time but never gotten it and it comes in porcelain and alabaster so I'm hoping that one of those shades will suit my skin. 

The second thing that I had wanted was the Clinique Dramatically different moisturising lotion. I like Cliniques products and this can be used on dry combination skin which I have.  

The last two items are eyeshadow related products. The first is the Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Palette. I didn't have a lot of interest in this palette until a friend of mine received it for Christmas and upon seeing it I really liked it so naturally I had to add it to my make-up wish list. 

Finally, I'm not even sure if this will be available, is the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I have the first palette and love it, I think I have used it nearly every day since I got in last May. I have read that they are very similar and that you only need one but being a great fan of all things make-up related I feel I must have it. 

So what make-up related or skin care products would you like to purchase? I will let you know what I get when I come back in a few weeks.
