Hi, I’m Chloe!

I'm beauty enthusiast, and my sister and I have spent the last several years researching and testing the best hair removal and beauty products on the market.

The Absolute Best 5 Ways To Remove Unwanted Hair

My sister and I find laundry detergent sheets as a lightweight, plastic-free alternative to bulky and messy plastic liquid detergent jugs. We tested the top laundry detergent sheet brands on the market for effectiveness, scent, cost, and ingredients. Here are our results:

The hair removal methods we tested🔬

Shaving, clinic laser hair removal, at-home IPL devices, waxing, creams, etc.

How we tested effectiveness of each hair removal method

  1. Removing hair on all body areas – We used each hair removal method on legs, bikini line, armpits, face, etc.
  2. On different skin types and tones – We tested it on sensitive, dry, and other skin types and on darker and brighter skin.
  3. Ranked each hair removal method using the following criteria:
    ✅ How Long Results Last
    ✅ Pain Level & Irritations
    Ease of Use
    ✅ Suitable for All Body Areas
    ✅Is It Skin-Friendly 
  4. Selected A Winner Based On The Results – We ranked each way of removing hair on a score of 1-5 for each of the different criteria and summed up the results.

Before: Not shaved for 6 days 

After: Smooth and silky legs with Silkier IPL. 😍

⭐ Overall Rating ️
Our ABSOLUTE favorite! Silkier IPL device removed hair without any pain on bikini line, facial area, and on both arm and legs. It’s a win-win-win! This was so effective and left my skin smooth and soft like never before! This device provides results for up to few weeks and months and it’s safe for any skin type (even most sensitive).

❤️ What we love ️
This is the best and most effective hair removal method I’ve tried. I loved how I can easily adjust settings to remove hair on my armpit, bikini line, and on my legs. Also, I have very sensitive skin and this left my skin silky!

Another thing we loved about Silkier is their customer service. They were very friendly, helped answer all our product questions, and even helped us figure out which intensity level to use for different skin types. Silkier is my new go to!

They’re also offering a limited time, 35% off  sale.

🙈 What are the downsides
Honestly, I can’t think of many downsides about this product (other than I wish these were around when I was teen!). If I had to pick one, it’s that it isn’t available on Amazon, but honestly, for such a high-quality product, I’ll order it straight from their official store.

✨ Effective hair removal with longest-lasting results
It leaves no hair behind and results last up to months because it removes the hair from the root. What pleasantly surprised us is how painless it is and it doesn’t leave any redness or marks even for the most sensitive skin type.

🙌 Only 10 minutes of use
It took us less than 10 minutes to remove hair on our legs, and even less for smaller areas. It saves time and effort and there’s no risk of cuts.

🌿 Keeps your skin smooth, soft, and silky
W‍ith adjustable intensity levels, we could adjust the intensity based on our skin type and tone (my sister has even more sensitive skin than me, so she used lower intensity) and enjoy in smoother skin than ever before.

💆‍♀️ No risk of ingrown hair:
While every other method will often cause ingrown hair, using IPL device is the only at-home method that eliminates risk completely.

Works great for armpit, bikini line, and facial area!
Legs are now smoother and silkier than ever before.

2. Clinic Laser Hair Removal

What we love:

What we don't like:

⭐ Overall Rating
We really enjoyed in laser hair removal and how effective it is at removing body hair. The biggest downside is the cost that’s usually around $200 per treatment and you’ll have to book multiple sessions to have longer-lasting results, meaning that overall cost can quickly ramp up.

❤️  What we love ️
We really loved the whole spy-type of experience and how you feel at salon. After the treatment, the skin was very smooth and there weren’t any redness or irritation. The results lasted for 5 weeks before we had to book a new session to re-do everything again.

🙈 What are the downsides
Our primary concern is overall cost. In most cases, you will need good 6-7 sessions which then ramps up to $1,400 in cost – which is a lot. Another thing we didn’t like is the recommended lotions to keep your skin smooth after this type of treatment as they’re very expensive too.

One $200 laser hair removal treatment left my legs also smooth and silky.

3. Waxing

What we love:

What we don't like:

⭐ Overall Rating
Waxing at home was really easy, time-saving, and it have done a great job in removing hair on legs. However, it’s not so suitable for sensitive skin as it will leave you with redness and even in some cases with itchiness.

❤️  What we love ️
Home waxing kit had very pleasant scent which gives you spa vibes and you can do it all by yourself from the comfort of your home. We enjoyed in the whole process and putting on wax was really relaxing and it warms up your skin. Also, it’s very affordable method.

🙈 What are the downsides:
While waxing is good hair removal method, it’s painful and you can’t use it on your bikini line or face without redness or irritation (my sister was itching for 2 days after waxing). Home waxing kits are usually cheaply made and imported from China, so the list of ingredients isn’t very reliable.

Lastly, I was a bit disappointed in effectiveness because I had to apply wax on certain areas multiple times to completely remove hair.

Waxing left redness on armpit area that lasted for 2 days.

4. Shaving

What we love:

What we don't like:

⭐ Overall Rating
Removing hair with razor is something everyone has done as a teenager – it’s cost-friendly, very fast, and you can use it under the shower. After more in-depth research, I realized that razors are very damaging to the skin and they cause your hair to grow back thicker.

❤️  What we love️
Speed and convenience is the biggest advantage of using razors. They’re very affordable and you can use them when you need a quick shave. They work pretty well for less sensitive areas such as legs and armpits.


🙈 What are the downsides
Shaving will definitely damage your skin and most-likely cause razor bumps and other irritations. The risk of ingrown hair is high, and they cause hair follicles to grow back faster and more thicker. Also, you can’t shave facial hair as shaving only removes hair from the surface.

 

Shaving caused razor bumps and little “red dots” that were itching me for 3 days.

5. Hair Removal Creams

What we love:

What we don't like:

⭐ Overall Rating
Hair removal creams did a solid job in our test of removing hair, however, we find them more convenient as a pre-treatment for hair removal. Often times we had to reapply it on certain areas to completely remove hair, but the process is completely painless and very gentle on the skin.

❤️  What we love️
For quick and pain-free hair removal, these creams work pretty well. They had pleasant scent and they don’t require a lot of effort. These creams have moisturizing capabilities that left our skin hydrated without any redness.

🙈 What are the downsides
B‍iggest downside is the effectiveness since we had to re-apply cream on some areas to completely remove the hair. Also, you can’t expect lasting results as it will typically last around 5 days before you have to remove hair again. A lot of formulations contain chemical ingredients, so you have to be cautious to pick the right one. 

Hair removal creams often require re-applying and they didn’t remove all hair.
And the skin was oily afterwards!

Why We Chose Silkier IPL Device.

So, to recap, I didn’t go into this thinking I’d fall in love with IPL lasers, especially after seeing how much some of them cost. Silkier IPL was a lot more effective, skin-friendly, flexible than any other hair removal method we’ve tried out.

Additionally, with their adjustable intensity levels, it’s suitable for all women – no matter the skin color, tone, type, or even where you want to use it..

The Silkier IPL was the only IPL that actually worked pretty well for me and it costs less than other IPL devices (in fact 3x less than some of the most popular ones.)

Overall, I’m thrilled I have found a hair removal method that is not only effective, but it keeps my skin smooth and silky like never before. While providing same results as laser hair treatments, it costs less than single session and I can use it anywhere I want, wherever I want.

Thanks for reading!
