Coming back into the world after the last two years mostly at home, we women are once again faced with a choice about our personal care and beauty routines. While we start to consider putting makeup back on or trying our high heels again, there’s one thing we can’t ignore any more: how to deal with unwanted body hair and what to do if we choose to remove it.
And it’s not like I have anything against body hair; it’s natural! But when your legs burn and itch after using a razor, or you’re brought to tears on the waxing table, or you hand over your credit card to your esthetician after a laser session, it’s clear these methods are straight-up inhumane. Times have changed, and so has hair removal.
Believe you me, I’ve researched and tried it all: shaving, waxing, laser, electrolysis, even things like sugaring, and hair removal cream one time in middle school (terrible choice – it smells like rotten eggs).
With all of this acquired wisdom, I feel like I can now share my easy, affordable, and effective hair removal secret with the world: the Nood Flasher 2.0.
But first, let me walk you through your options.
Option 1: The Prickliest - Shaving
Do you know the reason why the drugstore keeps razors behind lock and key? They may technically be weapons, but for the most part they are SO expensive – $480 over four years! That’s $120 every year just so the hair that you shaved off in the shower can grow back as soon as you step out. Even more, the hair that grows back is spiky and coarse, and can leave behind nasty, itchy ingrown hairs and bumps. We all know the feeling of itchy, painful razor burn and nicks after a shave. Nood works by pulsing light into the hair follicle to stop future growth, penetrating deep for permanent hair removal results without the irritation.
Option 2: The Most Painful - Waxing
Waxing is painful in more ways than one: not only is a full layer of skin getting ripped off, half your paycheck plus tip is on its way out too. Over four years, waxing costs a whopping $3,120, comprised of each time you’ve been nickeled and dimed to get an additional follicle of hair or two removed. Ignoring the physical and monetary pain, waxing only keeps the hair away for a few weeks at a time, and you have to wait for it all to grow back just to do it all over again. Not to mention, most people are prone to ingrown hairs following a wax that look and feel pretty bad. An endless, painful cycle. The Nood Flasher 2.0 comes with five different intensity levels, and you can choose whichever level works best for you. However, it really only feels like a slight tingle.
Option 3: The Most Shocking - Laser
Laser hair removal talks a big game, and demands an even bigger price. Permanent hair removal? I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop. $2,500 cost over four years? Ah, there it is. And even more, you have to have a standing appointment with your esthetician for the foreseeable future in order to maintain smooth skin. Nood uses IPL, or intense pulsed light, that targets the melanin in the hair follicle in the same way that laser does. The results of laser vs. Nood? Identical. The biggest difference? You can use Nood in the comfort of your own home on your time. Given the option, I choose Nood.
The Best Option, and My Personal Choice: Nood
Nood comes with a whole system, including The Revealer, a daily exfoliant, and The Reviver, a soothing post-IPL skin treatment, that helps to seamlessly guide you through the hair removal process.
After seeing the amazing results, I know I’m never going back to shaving, waxing, or laser. I’m going Nood!
