Smooth Away Product Review

A while ago I was asked to preview a product called “Smooth Away”. This product is a hair removal product that does not use creams, wax, or razors. This European hair removal system simply uses friction!
So I got my package in the mail and decided to test it (but not on myself of course!) on a willing subject! Well, first of all the system works with friction so in other words you are basically rubbing the hair away. And the rubbing actually works! My test subject was amazed at how well the product worked. The hair was gone and there were no nicks, cuts or abrasions! Awesome huh? The Smooth Away product is available in store like CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart, Sally Beauty Supply and Walgreen’s. The product goes for the low price of about $9.99 and comes with four large pads and four small pads a large paddle and a small paddle. The pads are used to rub off the hair (you attach them to a large or small paddle).
OK, so you must want to know how this magic is done, right?
Well, it is very simple. Attach a pad to a paddle and rub the hairy area, three times clockwise and then three time counter clockwise, and keep repeating these actions until the hair is gone! That was easy.
Unfortunately, my test subject only de-haired one underarm. After de-hairing one underarm, which by the way took about 20 minutes (That’s right I said TWENTY MINUTES!) she gave up on me! She said that her underarm was burning, you know like an Indian burn (I’m sure that the term Indian Burn is very politically incorrect, but hey I didn’t name it!) as a matter of fact the test subject walked around for about half an hour with her arm up like a chicken wing until the burning stopped. My test subject was happy with the bare under arm results but not at all pleased with the lasting burning sensation! I told her she was probably rubbing to hard (the directions do warn against this) or maybe her hair was a little too uh … coarse for this product!
Last I checked my test subject is still walking around with one bare underarm and one hairy underarm! But that one bare underarm looks great!!
So there you have our honest review of the “Smooth Away” hair removal system! You can also go to the Smooth Away website HERE and check it out for yourself.

    It seems like it would hurt- does if feel like your hair is getting pulled?After the nasty cut I gave myself today while I shaving (it’s seriously like 2 inches long and bled for a long time!) I might have to consider trying this.

    She said it wasn’t pulling, just the slight burning sensation. I personally think she was rubbing to hard!

    I’ve seen that and heard various thing some people love it and some hate it. I get waxed every few months well not that often now because the hair eventually seems to have stopped coming back. ;0i might have to get one of those.

    I tried this about a year or so ago. Never used it again. Enough said.
