I just saw an ad for Smooth Away, a hair removing product , on TV. Here is what I have to say about Smooth Away:
Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!
Yes, Danger! I had the misfortune of falling for this horrible little product, about a year ago. What could be easier I thought, than gently abrading away my unwanted hair? What I didn't realize is, that unless your hair is super fine, you will not only abrade away your unwanted hair, you will abrade away your wanted skin, as well! After testing this product out on the backs of my hands, I went around for the next two weeks, with what looked like rug burns on them. The insidious thing about this little nightmare of a product is, that like a sunburn, you won't notice the damage, until it's too late. Fortunately, I didn't use it on my arms, torso, or legs, or God forbid, my nether regions.
My advice is, that unless you have nothing other than peach fuzz to remove, stay as far away from Smooth Away, as you can.
