And it really doesn't work all that well on ideal locations. You do have to rub quite a bit, and your skin will get irritated.
don't waste your $$
Long Review: I had seen this on TV and threw the BS flag at it, but thought what the hell, I'll give it a go since it was a gift (my mom got one for each of us). Being a Greek girl I am no stranger to hair... dark, OMG LOOK AT ME!! hair... and having my arms tattoo'd I'm always shaving them. So it was with a bit of hesitant hope that I tried this product.
BZZT. Failsauce. Thing doesn't work well at all.
Oh, it works at first, yes. I read the directions thoroughly and went step-by-step with extreme care, following every step perfectly. As I began to rub, I got very, very excited - it was working! Not only that but my skin felt great. Yes, it leaves a white film on your skin but one wash and that goes away and leaves you with smooth, hairless, baby-booty skin. Sounds great, right?
Well it would be if the pad would last beyond the first use. The pads are essentially sandpaper downgraded into something skin-friendly. They have no lasting power whatsoever. So unless you plan on buying enough replacement pads to wallpaper your entire home, don't bother. Seriously. By the time I did both arms the pad was spent. Maybe I'm a freak and have stone skin like The Thing from The Fantastic Four but really, I doubt I'm the problem here.
Also, a word of warning to anyone wanting to try this on their face: Don't. I used the little one on my upper lip and it did nothing. I also tried using the bigger pad on my wannabe sideburns; it, too, did nothing, and then I guess I got a little ticked off and started to rub too hard because about 10 minutes later I had a severe case of red face disease. That was unshiny and burned for days.
Sigh. Back to the drawing board.
Of course, it doesn't just wipe the hair off as easily as in the commercials. But after the first usage my skin was so smooth and felt so good I decided to keep using it. I used it every night for a week and each night it took off a little more hair.
I have been using this for two weeks now and my legs are completely hairless and very very soft and smooth. I'm not really sure about the moisturizer's ability to retard growth but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt.
Anyway, that's my two cent's worth and I stand by it. I really do like this product and am very glad I tried it.
