Review - No! No!

Hair removal, I think we all hate it. I started, like everyone else, shaving, then went on to epilating when I started getting ingrown hairs and really bad shave burn. I'm quite happy with the results of epilating but I've only dared to use it on my legs.

A while ago I saw about this product, No! No!, which used Thermicon technology to remove hair and prevent regrowth. I was slightly dubious about how it worked and if it actually did and at around £150 I certainly wasn't going to rush into buying it. Then one day when I was browsing the TV channels I flicked on QVC and it was on there! Being able to see what it did made me want it even more but having heard lots of mixed opinions about it I still held back from the purchase.

That was until a couple of weeks ago. Again I was watching the beauty show on QVC and it popped on. This time it was on Easy Pay, this is where the price is split into a few monthly payments, and at £54 for 3 months I bought one! And the best thing is, if I'm not keen on it I can return it with their 30 day money back guarantee! So what do you get?

You, of course, get the No! No! device, mine is pink because that's the only colour they had left, a charger, a CD user manual, 3 Thermicon tips, a brush cleaner and 2 skin buffers.

I was a little scared about whether or not this would hurt but on the TV they said it didn't. Still slightly dubious I started on my super hairy arms. Like epilation Thermicon will slow down the hair growth and in the end it will hopefully stop hair from growing.

I started on the lowest setting, there are three, and I was surprised that it was actually painless. You can feel a warm sensation but that's it. It does take a little while to get the position and pressure right, if you're not doing it right it doesn't work. And then there's the matter of the smell of burning hair. At first it is really over powering but you do get used to it and the instructions recommend a scented candle! I also recommend this or a room with a window!



I was impressed with how well it removed the hair and it didn't even take that long. I have used it on my legs which did take quite a bit longer because it's harder to hold the device at the right angle and I've done my under arms but as the hair is thicker I didn't get such a great result but I will keep trying.

They recommend using the No! No! 2-3 times a week for the first 4-6 weeks and then to reduce usage to  once or twice a week. I will keep you updated on my progress but my initial thoughts are that I will keep this.

Have you used the No! No!? What did you think?
