Product: Veet Sensitive Touch Expert Electric Trimmer for Women (Pink)
I've been using cream hair remover so far - and didn't want to use it too frequently since it involves chemicals. Since I swim on a regular basis, I wanted a solution that I could use more frequently and easily without fear of chemical overuse. I've always been terrified of razor/blade for fear of hurting myself. I decided to take a risk with this product, and I'm very happy with the results. I was initially scared to use it, but was able to use it within minutes of experimenting - directly without even using the comb extensions.
The only thing I am still nervous about is running it over the eyebrow with the comb as shown in demos, but have been able to use it to clear the gap between the eyebrows. I have found it easier to use it without the comb extensions, using "distance from hair root" to manage the length of the cut. I tried out all combinations/extensions on my leg hair first till I got comfortable about handling the device - it was easier after that to work on the desired areas .
But to set expectations correctly, this is a trimmer that cuts hair, and the results will not be like waxing or hair removing cream. But one can cut the hair very close to the surface of the skin. Just needs a bit of practice and appropriate caution initially, and it is fit for all purposes !
Also, the blade doesn't touch the skin - it seems it works like a "horizontal scissor" rather than a "razor blade". So there is no blade-dragging over skin especially on spots when there is very less hair. It works on the hair, not the skin. I'm very happy with this purchase !
