Legs For Days, Darling. Introducing the Silk’n Flash&Go!
My legs are one of my favourite features – I’m quite tall and have very long legs, and I love showing them off! Especially during the summer time – shorts, skirts, dresses… love love love! What’s on the menu? Legs! What I hate though, is shaving. I’m not the biggest fan of body hair, and I’ve tried most types of hair removal. Waxes, razors, shaving creams… you name it, I’ve probably tried it. The trouble with these types of hair removal is that you’ll be smooth for a few weeks, but the hair will eventually grow back. Worst of all is that it gets super messy! I’ve been curious about laser hair removal for a while now – the convenience of being smooth without painful cuts or ingrown hair bumps? Sign me up! But it can be quite expensive – I’ve seen laser treatments priced from $1000 and up, depending on the amount of hair and where on the body you’d like to zap! When Silk’n reached out to me about their new Flash&Go Express Compact Hair Removal Device, I was immediately intrigued! I have always wanted to try out light-based hair removal (which I will explain a bit more later on!) I tested out the device for two weeks (two treatments), and today I’ll be showing you a mini demo and review
I actually used it in the weeks leading up to my Muskoka trip, which you can read about here!
A major confidence booster!
There’s something about feeling silky and smooth that just boosts my confidence! Maybe it’s tmi but I always make sure to shave and smoothen up in time for conventions. Many cosplayers use nude coloured tights when they have to show their legs, but I prefer to go barelegged! It looks more natural in my opinion. I always feel like a total boss when I’m strutting down the street with smooth legs, haha!
What’s Inside The Kit?
The Silk’n Flash&Go comes in a sturdy zipped kit. Components include…
- Silk’n Flash&Go Express Device
- Plug & adaptors for UK & European plugs
- Instruction Booklet
- Microfibre cloth
The Silk’n Flash&Go is a beautiful piece of technology – it’s a small and compact rounded device that has a nice weight to it. It feels quite luxurious, and the user-friendly design means no fussing around as it has super easy maneuverability! Simply plug it in, set your flash power, and press the front clicker to activate the device! The device also has a built in fan which keeps the machine running efficiently.
How Does It Work?
First, shave the treatment area (for me, this is my armpits and legs.) Then, plug in the device. You’ll see lights circling around the power button – press it and you’ll hear the inner fan turn on! Next, keep pressing the power button to select your desired level. For me, this is level 3-4. Next, simply place the front of the device (where the opening is) along your skin, and press the main button on the top. The device will emit a rapid pulse of light. Move to a different area on the skin and continue until you’re finished! It’s super easy! You can see a demo on their youtube channel here!
Does it hurt?
I think many people will be curious about whether or not the pulses of light hurt. At first, I used power level 3, as I figured the middle level would be a good place to start since I have dark, thick hairs. Now, I consider myself to have an average pain threshold, and I did not feel anything for level 3! You see a zap of light and hear a little popping noise, as well as a subtle warmth on the skin, but nothing painful. At level 5, the heat did feel more intense and the pop was louder, but again it just felt like a zap of medium heat on the skin for a split second. In my opinion, it did not hurt at all and felt completely painless!
I don’t know how they did it. I was a little nervous at first but the whole process felt totally fine and I didn’t experience any irritation at all.
It’s really convenient and only takes minutes to use! I’m absolutely loving it, and can’t wait to see my future results! 😀 Now you can be silky smooth and stubble free forever! It’s not messy and aftercare/ cleanup takes seconds. The device glides effortlessly across the skin, and the whole process is just so simple. Join the Silk’n not shaven revolution and make shaving a thing of the past! You can find Silk’n products at Bed, Bath & Beyond; Kohl’s, Ulta, and select Target locations in the USA.
