I recently tried a new product for hair removal. This product is called Sally Hansen Spray-On Shower-Off Hair Remover. The idea behind the product is to remove hair quickly without shaving and without as big a mess as hair removal creams. I tested it on my legs. Here are my results.
To apply this product, you just shake and spray a coat over the entire area of hair to be removed. This was fairly quick and fairly easy – much faster and less messy than applying my regular hair removal cream. However, I did have to place a towel on the floor underneath the spraying area. My next step would be to wait – who likes waiting? Not me. But 3 minutes sounded reasonable, so I proceeded to wait it out.
This only took a few minutes of waiting time. One the 3 minutes was up, I tested an inconspicuous area. The hair rubbed away effortlessly. So, it was off to the shower to rinse off and see just how magical this product really was. I hoped it didn’t disappoint because I was getting ready for church and did not want hairy legs showing underneath my skirt.
The product instructed that one was to simply rinse away the product under the shower and the hair would come away with it. If need be, a washcloth could be used to completely rub away any hair. Since my hair is coarse, I opted for the washcloth before even testing whether I needed it or not. However, it wiped away easily, so I ended up ditching the cloth halfway into the rinsing. Now it was time to see my results with the area dry, so I stepped out of the water and dried off.
As the area became dry, I was actually amazed at the results. There was indeed no hair left on my legs. It worked as it said it would. I was very pleased. I even showed my husband once I was dressed, before we whisked off to church with the kids. Of course, it was really no big deal to him. What does someone else care about how I rid my legs for hair? Probably not much.
Now, this is where the product left me unsatisfied. The hair grew back twice as fast as with my usual hair removal cream. So, I had to re-do the process much sooner than I would wish for.
Upon re-application, this product did not perform as well as it did the first time. I tried again on 3 different occasions and could not achieve the same results as I did with initial use.
I was satisfied with the first application, so I would recommend to someone to use once if they needed a quick solution instead of performing epilierer test to your skin. However, that may be all it’s good for. As a long-term product, this one gets an F. But, as a quick one-time fix, it gets an A+.
Will you be the next to try it?
