Long time no Blog. I know I have been a bad girl, but...I have a lot of reviews I am going to be getting into, because while I am studying my subconscious listens to QVC that is on my tv and my fingers start to dial 1800-buy-to-much-.com... I am thankful my husband hasn't revoked the cable as of yet, but as with any addiction you know we shopaholics will find a way ;) LOL
Well today I am reviewing the Me Smooth by Elos and let met tell you; I bought this with the notion I would have been sending it back but guess what, I wanted to try it. So I paid $299, five minutes before the next todays special value was to start and something told me to just try the unit, what did I have to lose. So I dialed automated and prayed I didn't get a dropped call or hit the end call button by accident.
Reason I bought this:
I started swim classes in January of 2013 and well even though I have been shaving for 20 years, I seemed to have grown allergic to shaving. Yes, I am making up the allergic part but the break outs were scary. I would shave every 3 days so that I wasn't wolfing and my pubic hairs wasn't going to grab anyone's leg in my class while making a fool of myself. The break point was when I went to shave and a hair bump was raised high, I pulled the shaver over it and it cut the top of the bump off and a hair protruded... are you grossed out yet.. Well it hurt burned like hell. I also shaved my whole lady friend and used Nair.. but the chemical and my skin don't get along and the hair bumps were so vicious I had so many hair bumps and grew frustrated with trying to get the hair out. So... I couldn't continue that.
While waiting for my Me Smooth to come in...GUESS WHAT I DID... I Epilated my armpits and they were bleeding so I decided to get a wax and it went smoothly. I was in pain with the Vajajay area but as I say to people "The first time is the worst time, after that it is smooth shaving..I mean sailing" LOL . When my Unit came in, I immediately called the company and asked was it okay if I used it several times a week and extended the treatment; they told me it was ok and that it couldn't hurt me. I then proceeded to use the unit doubling the treatment time, tripling the days of use. My bikini area was clean in four weeks and no growth months later even after stopping maintenance treatments, (I don't advise you stop, twice a month isn't going to kill you) My underarms took all of the seven weeks and probably a little more.
Ladies, you truly start to see hairy pits and five o'clock shadows when your hair free. I kept noticing and trust I wasn't looking for it, hairy pits on women of all shades and sizes. Those five o'clock shadows is no joke either.. I kept noticing that on myself only when I started shaving multi times weekly. Normally I only had to shave once and shadows wasn't an issue.
My only issue with this unit ladies and it goes with laser as well is before I used this, I never had to wear deodorant. I literally only perspired when I was about to get my monthly visit. ALL OF A SUDDEN... POW... I was wearing protection all the time thinking my period was coming but no... the Me Smooth unit happened to affect my glands and it is a known issue with laser and IPL.. with enough research... But would I take a do over if I could? NOPE.. I would use it again in a heart beat. I absolutely love being hair free. You can use this unit from cheek to toe.
Price: $299 TSV ($328 plus shipping)
What you get:
What you get if you order from QVC, is the ME Smooth Unit, the power cord, a case to hold it in, a cap to put over it when you don't have a cartridge in, 2 cartridges with 6000 pulses and the instructions and box.
This unit is amazing, but you will have to tweek it for your own personal use. Will it work in 7 weeks? I doubt it would have for me but it works none the less. Try it how I tried it, but consult with the company first as things may have changed. This works for all shades of skin from pale to dark. Don't be afraid.
:) most of all QVC offers a 90 day return on this unit.
