Remember when your mom told you, “If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is?” Well, Hair Off would fall into that category.

A couple of weeks ago, I had noticed that I needed to shave my legs. Unfortunately, I was in the car already in route to my activity. I stopped at CVS to pick up some Benadryl for my son and Hair Off just jumped right into my cart. The kit comes with 3 body mittens and 3 facial buffers for about $6. It advertises "instant, painless hair removal." So, I rationalized, why not give it a try. I figured, how bad could it be?

Since my hubby was driving, I broke out the package and proceeded to get straight to work. As soon as I opened it, I KNEW I was in trouble. As I took it out, my first thought was it looked like pink fine grit sandpaper. Seriously, I laughed out loud. I couldn't help but think that someone, somewhere, is making money selling pink sandpaper for “painless hair removal.” Out of curiosity, I looked on a package of sandpaper my husband has laying around but it did not list the ingredients. The actual ingredients for Hair Off are: silica, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, fragrance.

Anyway, since I already knew I needed to shave, I felt compelled to give it a try. I carefully read the instructions and then placed the pink Hair Off “mitten” on my hand and proceeded to apply light pressure and rub in a circular motion. First I rubbed clockwise and then counter-clockwise. Then I inspected the area. While the hair remained, the top layer of my SKIN had been sanded away. The area was a shade lighter than the rest of my leg and proceeded to turn a light red color. I had given myself RUG BURN on my leg!

Save your money on this one, unless you WANT rug burned legs!
