This is the new shaving product that has the bladeless "razor".

Well, I did, and I feel I have to warn you...

I out the stuff on my legs, dry, which somehow didn't feel right. I didn't know how much to put on, the directions don't really say. OK, I am supposed to leave on for 3 min and no longer than 8. I figure 2 somgs on the radio should be about right.

OK, then I decided to try it, down there, beats shaving, right? Well...

The stuff didn't do anything on my legs, they are still stubbly, nada, BUT

Down there? Well, let's just say I haven't looked like this since the day I was born! My husband cracked up.

So, I just wanted to warn you, it works very aggresively there!!! Go easy!! :rotfl:

Just wondering if there was burning like there can be with Nair and other products like that. I tried Nair on my legs once and had chemical burns for weeks:uhoh21: .....where they weren't burned the hair was still there though:rolleyes: :rotfl: Never knew that I was so sensitive:p :imbar

Please see my post in the thread, "Funniest injury you have ever seen" for my experience with Veet! :imbar

BASICALLY what happened was I used it on my legs and underarms. I used the aloe vera one with the "bladeless razor" to remove the cream. I have dark, coarse hair on my legs (thanks, PCOS!) so I left it on for the whole 8 minutes. My skin was fine, but it didn't remove all the hair - maybe I spread it too thin in areas? The bladeless razor thing was helpful but I still felt stubbly afterwards so I used my "pouf" thing to really exfoliate and get smooth. It didn't last any longer than shaving, and between the still-stubbly areas and the patchy hair areas...it SO wasn't worth it!

Now...the injury. It says not to use on face and genital areas. Add underarms to that!!! About a minute after applying to my armpits, I had a horrible burning feeling so I removed the cream. I burned off the top layer of my skin! OH MY GOSH does that hurt! Plus, it wasn't long enough to remove the hair, and then I couldn't shave...so then I had raw skin, burning, AND stubble irritating the area! Even fragrance-free, hypoallergenic deodorant burned. I asked one of the docs at work to prescribe Silvadene to me, but she recommended staying with Neosporin unless there was blistering. There wasn't, but I spent a week with VERY painful pits. :crying2:

I double-checked the canister this morning, and it DOES say not to use on face and/or genitals! OMG!

I didn't have any burning whatsoever, anywhere... but I don't think I'll use this stuff again!

A friend of mine used a depilatory cream on her upper lip once and the result looked like the WORST case of herpes I'd ever seen. I wont use the stuff. My skin is way too sensitive.
