C GENERAL INFORMATION ON EPILATION
This Remington® epilator has been designed to make the removal of unwanted hairs as
efficient, gentle and easy as possible.
The rotating tweezers catch even the shortest hairs (minimum length 0.5mm) and pull them
out by the root. The hairs that grow back are soft and thin. Epilating leaves your skin smooth
and hair-free for several weeks.
If you have not used an epilator before, or if you have not epilated for a long period of time, it
may take a short while for your skin to adapt to epilation. The discomfort experienced at first
is considerably reduced with repeated use as the skin adjusts to the process.
Using an epilator may cause reddening or irritation of the skin. This is a normal reaction
that will quickly disappear. However, you should consult your doctor if the irritation has not
disappeared within three days.
All methods of hair removal from the root can result in in-growing hair depending on the
condition of the skin and hair. Regular exfoliation helps to prevent in-growing hair.
In some cases inflammation of the skin could occur when bacteria penetrate the skin (e.g.
when sliding the appliance over the skin). Thorough cleaning of the epilation head before
each use will minimise the risk of infection.
F
HOW TO USE
This epilator is suitable for wet or dry use and may be used in the shower.
This epilator operates cordless only.
a Useful Tips
• When using an epilator for the first time it is best to try it on a small area to get used to
the process of epilation.
• The optimum length for hair removal is between 2-5mm. Epilation is easier and more
comfortable.
• Take a warm bath or shower before epilating and exfoliate to remove dead skin cells.
This will make your skin more pliable, making the epilation process less uncomfortable.
• Epilate in the evening so that any possible reddening can disappear overnight.
• After use you can use a body cream or aloe lotion to soothe the skin and reduce skin
irritation.
• Exfoliate regularly to avoid in-growing hair.
Why Exfoliate?
Exfoliation prevents in-growing hairs. Ingrown hairs occur when the growing hair curls up
under the skin instead of growing out like it should. It results in an often painful red bump
and possible infections. Rubbing your skin with an exfoliation glove in the shower or bath, or
using a dry body brush will help reduce ingrown hairs or infections.
Wet Use:
Ensure the skin is moist. For added comfort, shower gel can be added to the skin during use.
It is best to try different methods to determine your preferred method of epilation.
NOTE: After each wet use with shower gel, clean the epilator under running water.
Dry Use:
Before epilating make sure that the skin is clean, dry and free from creams or oils.
Rub the skin in the area to be epilated to lift short hairs to optimise hair removal.
5
Turn the epilator on to the desired speed:
LOW is recommended for fine hair
HIGH is recommended for coarse hair or stronger hair growth
Using your free hand, hold the skin taut to make the hairs stand upright.
Position the epilator flat so that the tweezers are at a 90° angle and flat against the skin. The
Perfect Angle Cap will ensure the optimum tweezing angle (Diagram A).
Using small circular motions, slowly and gently glide the epilator over the skin. This circular
motion is the most effective method and makes the process less uncomfortable. Alternatively,
guide the epilator in a slow, continuous movement against the hair growth (Diagram B).
Repeat within each area until all unwanted hair is removed.
After epilating, turn the epilator off.
, ARM/LEG EPILATION: (Diagram C)
Epilate from the lower arm/leg and slowly move upwards. To epilate behind the elbow/knee,
keep the arm/leg straight to stretch the skin.
, UNDERARMS AND BIKINI: (Diagram D and E)
Please be aware that these areas are particularly sensitive. However this sensitivity will
reduce after repeated usage. For more comfort, ensure that the skin is held taut and that the
hair is at the optimum length of 2-5mm. If it has been an extended period of time since
you have removed hair, trim the hair with the Bikini Comb Attachment before epilation.
It is recommended to use LOW speed or Detail Cap for these sensitive areas.
, FACIAL EPILATION
• Use the Detail Cap.
• Place the epilator at a 90° angle to the skin and move the epilator head in a circular
motion.
NOTE: Do not use for removing hair from the eyebrow.
Keep the product away from hair on the scalp, eyebrows and eyelashes.
, PRECISION LIGHT
• The precision light is incorporated into the ON/OFF switch to help to see every hair.
, EXFOLIATING GLOVE
• Use the exfoliating glove in the bath or shower to remove dead skin cells from the surface
and help prevent ingrowing hairs.
• Wet the glove and your skin with warm water.
• Apply a few drops of liquid soap or exfoliating scrub directly onto the glove.
• Using gentle pressure, massage your skin in small circular motions.
• Avoid sensitive areas such as near the eyes.
, DETAIL CAP
The detail cap is designed for small areas (including the face) and spot treatments.
• Ensure the epilator is switched off.
• Remove the Perfect Angle or Massage Cap.
• Place the Detail Cap into the appropriate slots at the top of the epilator.
• Gently press the Detail Cap into place until you hear a “click”.
6
, MASSAGE CAP WITH ALOE VERA
The Massage Cap is designed for gentler epilation.
• Ensure the epilator is switched off.
• Remove the Perfect Angle or Detail Cap.
• Place the Massage Cap into the appropriate slots at the top of the epilator.
• Gently press the Detail Cap into place until you hear a “click”.
, SHAVER HEAD
The shaver head provides a close shave for sensitive areas.
• Ensure the epilator is switched off.
• Press the head release button and remove the epilator head.
• Attach the shaver head until it clicks into place.
• Hold the shaver head at a 90° angle to the skin and move against the direction of hair
growth.
,
• • •
TRIMMING AND SHAPING
Attach the bikini trimmer attachment.
Hold the shaver at a right angle to your skin and press down gently.
Edge and shape the areas as desired.
A CAUTION
• For your protection your epilator may slow down or even stop if pressed too firmly
against the skin.
• Do not use the epilating head on irritated skin or skin with varicose veins, rashes, spots,
moles or wounds without consulting a doctor. People with reduced immune response
e.g. during pregnancy, or people who suffer from diabetes mellitus, haemophilia or
immunodeficiency should also consult their doctor before using this product.
• For hygiene reasons do not let another person use your epilator. It is recommended for
use by one person only.
C CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

This appliance is suitable for use in a bath or shower.

To remove residue
• To remove residue from the stainless steel tweezers, dampen a swab with alcohol.

CAUTION: Make sure that the cotton swab is not soaked in alcohol as this may damage the
epilator.

brush to brush the trimmers and shaver housing.
