Question of the Week: Let's talk body hair removal. Are you a razor person, or do you use another method (wax, depilatory cream, or device)? Or do you prefer to go au naturale?
I shave my body and my face, but let's forget that question of the week, because I have something better to discuss. I just started trying a new beauty gadget and I'm not really ready to talk about it. (butOMGit'samazing!) I've only been using the DermaFlash for a week, so my opinion is not fully formed, but I feel the need to gush. My face is so incredibly soft, I can't imagine life without it. Not just because the peach fuzz is gone, either. The DermaFlash uses sonic technology to "gently sweep away dead skin, hair and debris" from your face. It's similar to dermaplaning, which is done by a doctor or trained professional. It would be hard to hurt yourself with this gizmo (so don't worry about that) and skin is left super soft and glowing instantly. And you know I'm always all about the glow. The only downside is the one-use razors, but I suppose safety and cleanliness should be important. I'll give you more details and before and after photos in a post soon. If you are starting to think about de-fuzzing for spring, don't forget your face!
