Before I Try This...

I just want to know if anyone else has tried it, much less even heard of it?


During a browse on Another Online Mom's site, I came across this recent post and stopped cold in my tracks. Could this possible work?

Not sure about the rest of you, but I am not the type of mom to have lots of time on my hands to go out and have someone else pamper me. I usually shower when the girls are sleeping and give myself a quick clear polish pedicure so that you cannot see the mess-ups...so if this stuff

works on removing unwanted body hair in very sensitive places without the need for sharp blades and itchy, ingrown hairs...I will be one happy lady!

You are suppose to take some of the powder and mix it with a little water until it forms a thick past. Then you spread it on the treatment area and let it sit for five minutes. Next, you take a spoon and scrape it off...leaving behind super smooth skin with no razor burn.

Should I try it? Or should I wait to hear back from Another Online Mom about her experience or wait and see if some blog lurker comments with her story.

Wonder if it will also work on underarms, legs, etc?

I hear that you can get it pretty cheap in the hair color section of places like Target and Walmart. I have also heard that it smells pretty bad, but doesn't Nair!?!

I plan to go to Target and buy some at lunch but may not have time to try it today--depends on the kids's moods after work (ha)--but my two friends at the beach have been doing it for two years now and swear by it!

Do it! I love experimenting with new products! If Target and Wal-Mart weren't so far from me, I would get some today and try it with you.

Good Luck!

I'm suspicious... Let me know how it works!

I can honestly say that any hair removal that says "magic" on it makes me very, very scared.

How does it make the hair "let go?"

Anyway, thanks for visiting on the Blog Train...I enjoyed hearing from you!

One other thing...do you seriously read ALL those blogs?? HOW do you do it??? :-) Big list. Have a great day!

Guess what!? YOU'VE BEEN TAGGED! :) It's a fun one, see my blog for details :))

Well? Did you try it? Is it worth it? Enquiring minds NEED to know! ;) I'm praying for your Aunt, btw, keep us updated!

Okay...I must say I'm curious. I did look at it and it's certainly cheap enough...$1.38 ! Even if it doesn't work you're not out anything. I'm picking some up today.

Okay, well, I did it! It works and it smells no worse than Nair. Actually it smells just like Nair. I decided to go the extra 40cents and get the "moisturizing" kind in the silver can. It takes FOREVER to get the powder into paste form, so make sure you have extra time for yourself in this project. I ended up leaving it on my legs for 10 minutes before rinsing. Most of the hairs came off with some added effort from a washcloth. So my tip is put it on 10 minutes before showering. I was pleased with the results. Nair always gives me a nice rash down my shins...not this stuff! Thanks for the tip, Kara!
