GENERAL INFORMATION ON EPILATION
The Remington® Cordless Wet/Dry Epilator has been designed to make the
removal of unwanted hairs as efficient, gentle and easy as possible. The
epilation head and various caps are especially designed to follow the contours
of your body that channel fine, short and flat hair into the tweezer discs, leaving
the skin silky smooth.
The rotating tweezers remove hair as short as 0.5mm. The hair is pulled out
from the root.
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 time for your skin to adapt to this type of hair
removal system. The discomfort that you feel at first is considerably reduced
over time, as your skin adjusts to the process.
Using an epilator may cause reddening or irritation of the skin. This is a normal
reaction and will disappear quickly. However you should contact your doctor if
the irritation has not disappeared within 3 days.
All methods of hair removal from the root can result in in-grown hairs
depending on the condition of the skin and the hair. Regular exfoliation with the
exfoliating glove will help to prevent in-grown hairs.
In some cases inflammation of the skin can occur when bacteria penetrates
the skin (when gliding the appliance over the skin). Thorough cleansing of the
epilation head and caps after each use will minimise the risk of infection.
SOME USEFUL TIPS
• When using an epilator for the first time, it is best to try it on a small area
first. This will help the skin adjust to the process of epilation.
• The optimum length of the hair for epilation is 2 – 5mm. If hairs are longer
we recommend that you shave or trim the hair first with a Remington®
shaver or a Remington® bikini trimmer and epilate the shorter re-grown
hairs after 1-2 weeks.
• Take a warm bath or shower before epilating and exfoliate to remove
the dead skin cells. This will ensure that your skin is pliable, making the
epilation process less uncomfortable.
• It is advisable to epilate in the evening, so that any possible redness can
disappear overnight.
• After using your epilator you can use a body cream or aloe lotion to soothe
the skin and reduce irritation.
• Regularly exfoliate after epilation with the exfoliating glove to avoid ingrown hairs.
• For facial use (upper lip and chin area) use the Facial Cap only.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHARGING
Before using your Remington® Cordless Wet/Dry Epilator for the first time,
charge for 24 hours. For subsequent uses, charge for 4 hours before use. One
full charge allows for 40 minutes of cordless usage time.
Ensure that the On/Off switch is in the Off position. Attach the power adaptor
to the product and plug into any household (100-240V AC) power outlet. The
charging indicator light will illuminate, to indicate that the battery is charging.
• Only use the power adaptor supplied with the epilator.
• Make sure that the epilator is turned off while charging.
NOTE: The epilator cannot be turned on while it is charging.
DO NOT attempt to operate your epilator when it is plugged into the
charging adaptor.
• Your epilator will alert you when the battery charge is running low. The
red indicator light will be illuminated to indicate low battery. When the low
battery indicator is illuminated, you must return to charging mode.
• Your epilator cannot be overcharged.
• If the epilator is not going to be used for an extended period of time unplug
it from the mains and store it.
• If the epilator is not used for a period of 2 – 3 months, fully recharge the
epilator when you use it again.
• Always charge the epilator in a cool, dry place
• In order to preserve the life of the batteries, they should be fully discharged
every six months and then fully charged for 4 hours.
• Always ensure that your hands, epilator and mains/charging adaptor are
dry before charging.
• The Remington® Cordless Wet/Dry Epilator cannot be used when attached
to mains voltage (100-240 Volts) while it is charging.
• Do not charge the epilator in close proximity to water.
• Only use the power adaptor supplied with your Remington® Cordless
Wet/Dry Epilator.

HOW TO USE YOUR EPILATOR
NOTE: THIS EPILATOR OPERATES IN CORDLESS MODE ONLY.
Before epilating, make sure your skin is clean, dry and
free from creams or oils. Ensure that the On/Off switch
is in the Off position. Turn the epilator on ensuring that
you press the switch lock in with your thumb. Set to
the desired speed. Low speed is recommended for fine
hair and High speed is recommended for course hair or
stronger hair growth.
Using your free hand, hold the skin taut so that the hairs
stand upright. Position the epilator so that the stainless
steel discs are at a 90º angle and flat against the skin.
The Remington® epilator attachment heads are designed
to ensure maximum contact to the skin to maximise the
hair removal process. (Diagram A)
Glide the epilator in a slow continuous movement against
the hair growth. Do not apply pressure as the epilator
will slow down or even stop. Repeat until all unwanted
hair is removed. After epilating, turn the epilator Off.
ARM/LEG EPILATION
Select and attach the Perfect angle cap, or Massaging
cap with Aloe Vera to the epilator. Epilate from the lower
arm or leg and slowly move upwards. To epilate behind
the elbow or knee keep the arm or the leg straight to
stretch the skin. (Diagram B)
FACE, UNDERARM & BIKINI EPILATION
Select and attach the Facial cap to the epilator. Please
be aware that these areas are particularly sensitive to epilation. However this
sensitivity will reduce after repeated usage. For more comfort, ensure that the
skin is held taut and the hair is at the optimum length of 2-5mm.
When epilating the underarm keep your arm raised so that the skin is
stretched. Directly after epilation avoid using irritating substances, such as
deodorants with alcohol. (Diagram C)
When epilating the bikini line hold the skin around the bikini line area taut, and
glide the epilator in a circular motion. (Diagram D)
7
ATTACHMENTS
Your epliator comes with one interchangeable shaver head. To attach the
shaver head press the head assembly release button and remove the current
head. Attach the shaver head by pushing it onto the body of the epilator until it
clicks into place.
THE SHAVING HEAD ATTACHMENT
The shaver head allows you to shave sensitive areas or long hairs. To use, hold
the shaver head at a right angle to the skin and glide it, with light pressure
against the direction of the hair growth. To shave long hair, tip the shaver
slightly, allowing the front trimmer to glide along the skin against the direction
of the hair growth. After removing the long hairs, move the shaver across the
skin gently so that the foils can remove any remaining hairs.
A bikini comb attachment is included for your shaver head. This allows you
to trim hairs to a shorter length prior to epilating, or for shaping the hair to
a desired length. To use the bikini comb simply attach it over the top of the
shaver head and glide it over the hair at a right angle to the skin.
THE FACIAL CAP ATTACHMENT
An interchangeable Facial cap attachment is included with your epilator for
smaller areas and spot treatments, such as the face, underarms and bikini line.
To attach the Facial cap first remove the cap that is currently on the epilator.
Align the Facial cap with the epilator and then gently push down until it locks
into place. To use, hold the epilator at a right angle to the skin and glide it, with
light pressure against the direction of the hair growth.
MASSAGE CAP WITH ALOE VERA
The massage cap is designed for a more gentle and comfortable epilation.
Infused with Aloe Vera it soothes and calms your skin by gently stimulating and
massaging as you epilate.
THE EXFOLIATING GLOVE
The exfoliating glove gently removes dead skin cells from the surface of the
skin. Exfoliation helps to prevent in-grown hairs. In-grown 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 the exfoliation glove in the shower or bath will help reduce in-grown hairs
or infections.

MAINTENANCE
CLEANING THE EPILATOR HEAD AND ATTACHMENT CAPS
To ensure long lasting performance of your epilator it is important to clean the
head assembly and attachments regularly. Always keep a cap on the epilation
head when it is not in use to prevent damage to the barrel.
• Ensure that the epilator is turned off and disconnected from the mains.
• Pull the cap attachment away from the body of the epilator. (Diagram E)
• Using the cleaning brush provided brush the
accumulated hair from the tweezers by slowly
turning the barrel. Alternatively, remove the
attachment cap from the body of the epilator and
rinse the cap and barrel under running water.
• Replace the cap attachment back onto the body of
the epilator.
• Alternatively you may also clean the tweezers using the cleaning brush
dipped in alcohol. The cap attachments may be rinsed under warm water.
CLEANING THE SHAVING HEAD
To maintain peak performance it is important to clean the shaving head
attachment regularly.
• Ensure that the epilator is turned off and disconnected from the mains.
• Press the head assembly release button and remove the shaving head
from the body of the epilator.
• Remove the blade, foil and cutter assembly by placing your finger either
side of the assembly and pulling upwards away from the shaver head.
• Gently shake the blade and trimmer assembly to remove the hair. Using the
cleaning brush provided brush any loose hairs from the shaver housing.
DO NOT use the cleaning brush to clean the foil. The shaver foil is easily
damaged and must always be treated with care.
• Replace the blade, foil and cutter assembly by gently pushing it back into
place.
LUBRICATING THE SHAVER HEAD
Once a month Remington recommends that after rinsing the epilation barrel
or shaver head with water, that a light grade oil (such as sewing machine oil)
be used to lubricate the attachment. Simply spread 1-2 drops lightly over the
cutters or epilator barrel with your fingertip and wipe away all excess oil.
DO NOT use hair oil, grease or any oil mixed with kerosene or solvent as these
will evaporate.

STORAGE
When not in use, always unplug the power adaptor from the power outlet.
Never wrap the cord of the power adaptor around the unit as this will cause
the cord to wear prematurely and break. Handle the cord carefully for long life
and avoid jerking, twisting or straining especially at the power plug. If the cord
becomes twisted in use, periodically straighten it.
