When I started using my SmoothSkin Muse about twelve weeks ago, I made a joke on my instagram account about being hair free for Christmas and how liberating that would be. Now I’m at the end of my trial period, I can tell you: I’m almost there, and it’s actually pretty damn liberating indeed.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t cast any aspersions on anyone who might want to keep all their hairs where nature put them – but I’m not one of those people. I like the slip of my leg sliding into clean sheets without any fuzzy resistance, and the joy of not having to keep tweezers on every table in the house in case I find a pesky whisker.
That said, even after my efforts, I’m not happily bald as a coot, bodily (more’s the pity). My underarms have given up, and my bikini line is about there, but I still am battling some leg hairs, primarily because I think my IPL-ing technique leaves something to be desired and I’m quite sure I missed patches.
And this leads me to the real nugget of advice I want to give you if you opt to buy a SmoothSkin yourself (and if you do, make sure you use the discount I’ve got running, here): the device only works if you use it, each week initially and whenever you have hair sprout up thereafter. If you miss patches as I clearly have, they will of course still grow hairs. And if you don’t have skin that’s paler than your hair, you can’t use it. Also, you will have to accept the nuisance of shaving first and contending with stubble for the early period. This is especially annoying if you have a stubborn moustache, but in my experience well worth the bother.
In essence, it boils down to this: the right person, using it diligently, will see excellent results. I’m really enormously impressed with the reduction in hair I’ve seen and have no reservations in recommending that you buy if it, like me, you’re hirsute and wish not to be.
As mentioned above, I have a discount currently running so if you’re going to buy one and want to save some money, do use that code. But I also have one final device to giveaway, so if you’d like to win, please tell me in the underneath comments field about your biggest beauty battle. It doesn’t have to be hair – I just want to know what irritates you on a near daily basis, if anything. If nothing, tell me that too (also: lucky you!).
This giveaway is open to UK residents only and the winner will be picked and notified on the e-mail address they enter before leaving their comment on the 17th of December.
