Recently I was chosen by Influenster to test out a hair removal system that you can use at home!
I was SO excited when I heard that I would be receiving this in the mail! It's the Silk'n Flash & Go Express. The machine in stores would cost around $200. This is the most expensive thing I've ever received from Influenster, but also the item that has excited me the most!
I've always wanted to try laser hair removal. Something at home would be even more convenient and wonderful!
Tonight I tried it out for the first time. You have to shave the area first and make sure it's clean of deodorant and lotion. Then you plug the machine in and you're ready to go!
You press the on switch and hold the button down, moving it a little every time it flashes. This would make a lot more sense if I were showing you. It flashes a light on the area, then you have to move it in a line or clear path to make sure you get all of the hairs.
The machine is suitable for face, underarms, arms, bikini line, and legs. It takes multiple treatments to work fully. I've only done one treatment so far, on every area I listed, with the exception of my face, which doesn't have any excess hair.
The machine doesn't hurt at all to use. The light gets a little warm, but not warm enough to hurt you. The areas I used this on have an odd sensation. They feel a little itchy but not enough that I actually want to scratch them. It's really not that uncomfortable. I have very sensitive skin, so trust that if this machine doesn't hurt me, it most likely won't hurt you.
I'll keep you updated on how well this works over the next few weeks (you need to use this every two weeks).
