"I would recommend Smoothskin to anyone"
I'm on my 3rd week of using SmoothSkin, and I'm really impressed with it. I'm quite a dark haired person (all over) and this has come as a god send.
I was a bit reluctant to use this thing at first, kinda felt like Dr Evil taking over the world with my laser..... Ok, maybe not the world, but the evil hairy parts that have been the bain of my life for years.
Remember to shave thoroughly, if you don't, you will soon find out about it.
The 'sensation' when you hit a rogue hair is like a hot elastic band pinging you. Not nasty but a tad uncomfortable, enough to call your new friend a expletive or two.
I have braved using it on my chin, my only inspiration for this (ok, let's go for desperation) is having the mental image of stepping off a 19 hour flight to Bali looking like a man with a full grown beard...... Very real in my case, so I zapped away. First off I used the gentle setting which really didn't have the effect I was hoping for, heck, if you're gonna do it, do it properly! At this point the bearded lady man was still dancing around in my head......
I closed my eyes, gritted my teeth, wanged it on full power and zapped.....
It wasn't the most pleasant experience, my vocabulary of expletives has pretty much tripled from the missed hair on the leg experience. But 5 mins and you are all done.
Thank god it's only once a week and it gets easier the more times you use it!
Overall I am very impressed with SmoothSkin, I would recommend it to anyone.
