Diary of a Defuzz | SmoothSkin Gold & GIVEAWAY!

SmoothSkin Gold_front- high res

When do you normally start thinking about de-fuzzing? If you’re anything like me, it’ll be about a week before a beach holiday when the only viable options left are 1) shaving (hate the regrowth), 2) waxing (ouch!), or for a really painful experience, 3) epilating –  double ouch!

This year, I’m getting in on the game early. I’m starting the war on unwanted hair right now, with a new home-use IPL (intense pulse light) called SmoothSkin Gold. Now, I’m not for a second suggesting that this is totally pain free but hear me out: either way, there’s a little pain, whether you wax or epilate or even shave (I’m so cack-handed I’m always nicking my ankles and knees with the blade). But go with those methods and you get the pain AND still get regrowth, right? I’ve had IPL on my legs before (to great effect, might I add) and although there’s a little pain, it’s nothing compared to the pain of an epilator and at least this way, I get permanent hair reduction. Whoever said no pain, no gain? I beg to differ!

In the past, it’s been difficult to find a home-use IPL that a) had a large enough “head” to minimise the time taken to get through a body part and b) most importantly, one that works for Asian skintones. SmoothSkin Gold delivers on both these, so I’m really excited to get going with this. The blurb that comes with it promises a gentle experience, a special ‘Sensitive Skin’ setting and best of all, results are seen after just three weeks, with significant results after 6-12 weeks.

So here I go on my mission to free myself from the fuzz. I’m thinking I’ll keep a little 6 week de-fuzzing diary to keep you up to date with how I’m getting on with it and what I think of the results. Now, if you’re anything like me, the thought of seeing someone’s hairy (and then less hairy, hopefully!) skin is not the most attractive thing, so I’ll spare you the ongoing photos and find other, more attractive photos for you to feast your eyes on.

Best of all, those lovely people at SmoothSkin Gold have given me one of these amazing defuzzing devices worth a huge £299 to give away to one lucky reader! Entries for the competition will close in six weeks time, when I get to the end of my hair diary – there’ll be a question relating to the SmoothSkin Gold, the answer to which you’ll find in one of the three diary posts coming between now and mid-January.
