I got one at Sephora seriously 5 years ago?  Used it on my arms a little and on my legs a lot. Back then it was expensive for the replacement blades so I fell out of using it after about a year.  I still barely have any hair on the tops of my legs and well less on the bottoms.  Not much change in my arms but I didn’t really focus then.  It looks like they’ve changed something about it though because mine could absolutely not be used on your face. It smells horrible (like burning hair) and it took awhile to see results.

 

Long comment made short:  Definitely worked, but stunk and takes some time.

I have one that I use for the blonde peach fuzz on my face.  It works, but not nearly as well as the infomercial shows.  Like PP stated, it stinks & takes time.  I have to go over the areas on my face a couple times to be really satisfied, I couldn’t imagine trying to use it on a larger area.  I purchased mine a couple years ago directly from the No!No! site.

For what its worth, I also have super hairy arms.  I started shaving them in junior high but got sick of the prickly feeling when the hair would grow back & was super self conscious about someone else feeling it.  About a year ago I found Nad’s Body wax strips & decided to try them.  They are pretty cheap, a box is about $7 & it will last me 2-3 months.  Needless to say, I LOVE them!!  They are really easy to use because the wax is already applied to the strip so you just have to pull it apart, slap it on, and yank it off.  If you decide to try them, make sure you pay attention to the direction of the hair growth (mine grows in different directions on different parts of my arm) & apply the strip in the same direction as the hair growth & yank it off in the opposite direction.

It two words, No No. 

I didn’t see any reduction in hair growth, and it had to make about a million passes over my arms to get rid of hair, and even THEN I found myself shaving the rest off.

Yes, it works in that is does burn off the hair. I did not find that it actually reduced my hair over time though. It take a long time to use and the blades are expensive.

I gave up and switched to the Veet bladeless razor for my arms. If I ever start making a real income, I’ll wax.
