As most women do I am constantly shaving and/or tweezing my face, arms and legs. Well, my face and armpits anyways. I am way too lazy to shave my legs unless I plan on wearing a dress or my lady parts are getting an visit from someone other than the person I am married to.
I have been getting sick of conventional methods for hair removal so I when I saw Smooth Away I really wanted to try it. My very first attempt to try Smooth Away was using the smallest piece to try to ward off the stache that tends to grow like a Chia Pet.
I prepped my face as per the directions and then I was ready to rock. Seemed simple right? Rub this little doohickey above my lip carefully and voila, no more hair. Or so I thought. Apparently I rubbed just a little too long. When I was finished the hair had disappeared but so did the first five layers of my skin! Here's the kicker - only one one side. So one side was great and the other RAW. Finally after three weeks of lotioning the crap out of my upper lip I was back to normal.
This whole experiment got me thinking about different hair removal systems that I have been swayed by. I've tried many but there was one that has been around forever that I have yet to try. That product is Nad's. Even now, I can't help but laugh at that awesome name. I feel like I'm in seventh grade all over again!
Do any of you remember when Nad's came out in 1992? Those infomercials were on all the time! Seriously, who could take a product seriously when its name was a synonym for a part of male anatomy? Funnier still originally the process was to roll the gel into little "balls" and then smooth them out over the hair covered skin. I still remember to this day the founder of the company telling me that I just needed to "flick and peel" the Nad's and the hair would be gone. Nad's. I'm still laughing about it!
Apparently nowadays Nad's is still around. I seriously had no idea. They now have hair removal cream in addition to gel. I do like the fact that Nad's is all natural, which isn't something I could have or would have appreciated in the seventh grade.
After my horrible experience with Smooth Away I am actually entertaining the idea of using Nad's, especially for facial hair removal. They even have a wand so that when you are applying the hair removal cream you can do it with precision around your brows before placing the hair removal wax strips on your face. Intriguing but I get really nervous about my eyebrows. I always have a small fear that I will end up like Jason Biggs in My Best Friends Girl.
What about you? Have you ever tried Nad's? If you have any hair removal horror stories please feel free to share them here. Or am I only the one that is hair removal challenged?
