smooooooth away review!


I bought this product last month and I am finally doing a review on it!!  

I bought this product initially to get rid of my hairy arms...someone did a a demo on me at the mall and it didn't hurt, my arm was really smooth and soft, but the lady was trying to rip me off...$20!!  I knew I could get it at CVS for $9.99!!  I went with a girlfriend and we got the vibrating one because well...it looked so much more fun to play with ;p  har har...ANYWAYS..

DO NOT BUY THE VIBRATING ONE!!  Just buy the normal one...plus the vibrating one cost $5 more...the vibrating one...because it is on a plastic piece...the glue melts and gets all over your hand and it just nasty.  Do yourself a favor and get the regular one for $9.99.

The fine crystals on the pads smooth away the hairs.  The kit comes with a large applicator, one small applicator, 5 large replacement pads, and 5 small replacement pads.

I've tried waxing...it hurts too much.
I've tried shaving...it grows back really prickly.
I've tried Veet...it grows back fast AND prickly.
Smooth Away grows back slower and not as prickly and pokey.

The only downfall...when using my left hand [I'm right handed], my left hand gets tired and I miss parts...so I just tell my sister to smooth away my arms...she doesn't mind much :p

I've only used it on my arms, and I think it works great.
The pack comes with a smaller piece you can use for your face [lips], and bikini area...I've tried a small part of my bikini line and I don't break out or anything.  

It's available at drugstores, the mall, online...I think it's cheapest at the drugstores though.

I love the price and the outcome.  I definitely recommend this product for its price.  Go get your Smooth Away kits!!

i've never tried the smooth away i suppose it works different on other skin types. this lady tried on me at a convention and my skin almost pealed off. i'm not sure if its because she rubbed it too much or whatnot, but from your review seems like it works absolutely great. maybe i'll get myself it!

does it really work that well?
it doesnt make your hair grow back darker/thicker?
