I don’t know if you may have seen the ads on TV for these crazy things, but there is a product, mostly geared toward women because they shave their legs and hate doing it, but also can be used for men, that is supposed to remove your hair and leave your skin smooth because it exfoliates the dead skin cells off at the same time.
It’s actually just like a piece of fine grain sandpaper if you look at it, and you take it off of a sticky pad and attach it to an applicator thingy and rub it clockwise and counter clockwise until you feel like you’ve removed enough body hair that you’re satisfied.
Male hair removal products are incredibly popular now because men, just like women, are very self conscious of excess body hair. Men also tend to grow a lot more body hair than women, so they also like to remove it, especially during the warmer months when they go shirtless or wear less clothing so that they don’t look like a hairy ape at the beach or at that company picnic, or in their swim trunks at the pool.
You’ve seen the guys that have backs that could double for a gorilla suit, yeah, it’s not really the most attractive thing to women, at least most women that is.
The sandpaper-like contraption that removes body hair is claimed by the makers to be a tool that men and women can use to remove unwanted body hair, with minimal irritation, that will leave the skin smooth and hair free for weeks, and not be expensive, like laser hair removal and some of the other salon and professional hair removal techniques, or stinky and irritating depilatories that are also fairly popular.
My personal favorite is this one, which I feel is the best male hair removal cream on the market today, because it’s used by body builders and it really does leave the skin hair free for weeks with minimal upkeep – no hard stubble either, which is great, whether you’re a guy or a girl, no one likes to have uncomfortable hair stubble.
However, the sandpaper product in tests has not fared so well with users. Many say that it does not take the hair off like it says it does, or takes off very minimal hair, and it also tends to leave the skin irritated and take a lot more circles to even begin to work. Some people have complained of very bad razor burn-like symptoms afterwards, and not even enjoyed the added benefit of hair removal which was expected.
I guess you really do get what you pay for. At least you know that if you can’t afford what is probably one of the best ways to permanently remove hair, laser hair removal, then there are other, much more affordable and effective options at removing your bothersome body hair for weeks at a time.
