philips satintouch precision epilator. This compact little beauty, specially designed for more-subtle-yet-effective hair removal on our face and other sensitive areas, features a number of genius tweezing discs that firmly grab and remove the hair from the root, helping to avoid discomfort and reduce pulling of sensitive skin. It comes with an extra cleaning brush and a protective pouch for storage and travel and retails for just $40 (exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart). As for legs, Philips has those covered, too. Its Satinelle Prestige wet and dry epilator includes seven accessories for silky results and two brand-new bodycare heads (an exfoliator and a massager) for really radiant skin.
