Still on the search for a better hair removal method, I decided to try this out last Fall… Sick and tired of nicks and cuts from using my razor, I decided to give Smooth Away a try. When I first tested it, I was pretty impressed. It actually did what it advertised, and it was pain free. It’s just too darn bad, hair has to continuously grow…
Seems to me that the results last equally as long as a regular shave.
I definitely stress using extreme caution to anyone who decides to try using this on their face. I happen to have some really fine light colored hairs near my hairline, and near my jawline, which, thanks to my genes, there isn’t much I can do about it. Normally I have to tweeze or just wax away those fine semi translucent hairs, but at least once I decided to try the Smooth Away. Boy, was that a mistake! Although the Smooth Away worked decently on my legs and other areas, the skin on my face proved to be way too sensitive to tolerate that kind of hair removal method. After I was all done, I was pleased with the results, however, the next day I happened to notice how dry and irritated the skin on my face had become. It became extremely dry and flakey, quite rash like and took nearly 4 days to heal.
Because this product is essentially sanding your skin and hair, you should still use caution when using it. You do not want to over dry and take off skin in the process. The one thing I did find nice was that I could use is almost anywhere, it was so easy I could do it mindlessly. The even better part was, that if I choose to use it prior to showering, I don’t have to shave in the shower, and it could save me tons of time. I think it’s kinda neat that you don’t need water to use it. My husband constantly complains that I take half hour showers, heck, my family used to complain when I was growing up. With my legs hair free prior to showering I could get in, wash my hair and body, and get out in ten minutes.
I have since found a somewhat more effective product, but I would still somewhat recommend this to others, mostly to parents with a young girl or preteen that they are not quite ready to hand over a razor to. That’s probably the only one I would recommend the product to…
I probably wouldn’t buy this again, and I have to say to my readers, that my search for the ultimate hair removal product continues. Until then, I will stick to my razor.
