Does Smooth Away Really Work?

But not with the Smooth Away! Ok, I'll admit... when I first saw the commercial for Smooth Away on TV, I was a bit skeptical.  Then I was walking around at one of those expos where you can actually try the product and I was STILL skeptical.  They did a demonstration on a small area of my arm. At first I thought it was cool -- until I looked at the side of my arm and it looked like my hair was still there.  So I immediately thought, "This doesn't work, it's just another gimmick". Then I recently went to Walgreens and I stumbled upon Smooth Away once again.  For only $9.99, I thought, fine!  I'll try it again.  It says that it exfoliates your skin, so if it doesn't remove the hair, at least my skin will be silky smooth, right?  Well I took it home and tried it on one arm and the results were night and day!  The arm that I used Smooth Away on was smooth like a baby's butt and there were no signs of any hair, while the other arm was still rough, dry and hairy.  So then I went crazy and used it all over my body and now I frickin love this product!  Not only do the mini crystals file down the hair, it exfoliates away any dead or dry skin, leaving you feeling super smooth and soft.  I'm curious to see how long it takes for the hair to grow back. So far, it's been a week and nothing.  Of course results vary, but this is a super easy and painless way to remove your hair and exfoliate your skin.  You have to have to have to try this product.  I love it!!!

Note: when you go to purchase this product, do not order from their website or commercial!  It's a complete rip off when they say they'll give you 2 sets for $14.99+shipping and handling.  A lot of bad reviews came up for this product simply because people ended up paying like $50, which is way too much.  You can purchase Smooth Away for much less on eBay (do not pay more than $10 for 10 pads) or at your local Walgreens/CVS store.  Happy filing your hairs aways!

    That’s total bs. I bought one and it was nothing like that pink thing- I got one that was light blue with a little vibrating thing, and you had to put it together. Everything was sticky and wouldn’t even hold! Then, using the product: it didn’t even work. Sometimes it’d work on one or two hairs, but it made no impact on even the smallest stubble.

    The Smooth Away does work, but you need to be VERY GENTLE and PATIENT! I got a little over-enthused with mine and wound up having red and very tender arms for about four days. I also noticed the hair started to grow back within about three to four days. So not much more effective than shaving, a little less messy but far more time consuming.
