Excellent

Easy to use. Cheap. Effective. Re-useable.

Leaves a white powder, but it can be rubbed off. W...

We all hate shaving, don't we? It is one of those mundane tasks that we all have to do, but hate! If you have read any of my other shaving opinions, then you will know that I have not had much look in finding a product that I like. I don't like razors, as I am a little too clumsy for my own good...

“show off those sexy legs”

published 14/05/2003

cheap, exfliates, leaves skin smooth

can irritate very sensitive skin, takes time

Many years ago, when shaving my legs was forbidden by my parents and I had to sneak my Dad’s razor if I wanted to do it, there was a girl at school called Roz. And Roz boasted to everyone that her mother allowed her to get rid of her new sprung pubescent hair and what’s more, Roz’s mum even...

I tried these last summer for the first time, having got fed up with the various creams and lotions, the tiny cuts which take ages to heal and quick re-growth from using even an electric razor and I’ve never really had the courage to use wax of any sort. I’m always suspicious of things that are...

It takes AGES!!!

I used a Silky Mitt before I went away on holiday and I have to say, although they are strange at first, they give good results. A silky mitt is a kind of glove made out of what feels like sandpaper. It can be bought in Boots, Superdrug and other large chemists, in the hair removing section (The...

“sliky skin with silkymit”

really smooth skin, easy to use, no cuts possible

time consuming to use, maybe hard to use in some a...

I have used Silkymit for a couple of years now and it's grown on me - just like those pesky hairs! Silkymit hair removing glove looks more like a mitten. It appears as though it's made from a fine grade sandpaper. To use it is very simple - you just slip it over your hand and work it in circular...

“No Razor Required”

published 14/05/2005

silky smooth legs, no razor

takes time

I first saw these about 5 years ago in Boots at a reduced price of 59p. ( Now I have seen them in Boots for about £1.15). I was only 14 at the time and didn't own a razor (I used my Dad's :S *cringe*) and was off to torquay on holiday for a week with my friend, so I thought what the hey - they're...

“No cuts, no smells”

published 05/10/2000

cheap and efficient

cannot use under arms or on face

The simplest and cheapest solutions are often the best! With respect to removing hair from my legs, I have tried ordinary razors, electric shavers and depilatory cream (although I'm too much of a coward to try waxing!). I always ended up cutting myself with razors, while electric shavers seemed...

I was fed up with the way my legs went dry and occasionally flaky after shaving. I didn’t get on with home waxing and can’t afford to have it done proffessionally. My answer? well, I searched high and low (on the hair removal shelves of Boots!) and came accross Boots own brand “Silky Mitt Hair...

That’s what my boyfriend rightly calls it... On the packet it told me something along the lines of... for those in between days... as a quick alternative to shaving short re-growth, or following waxing. For a short period of time it did make my legs feel smooth, then I realised it was...

Hair grows back quicker than after waxing

I have been using Boots Silky Mits for a few years. These are gloves you slip over your hand and in a circular motion you remove the hair from your legs. It is very fine sandpaper essentially, but does not hurt or damage the skin in the least. It is quick - about 3 minutes for each leg and is...

“wipe the hair away”

published 12/03/2004

cheap, effective, good for the skin

takes a while to complete treatment

When you use these for the first couple of times you may not be impressed - so my advice is to keep trying, perhaps twice a week. Also you may see some small red dots on your skin the first couple of times but again don't be put off. I have tried every painful, smelly and sharp method of hair...
