I'll Be "SHAVING" Far Less This Year...Thanks To Remington's New iLight Pro Technology!

SHAVING...it's my enemy!  I remember when I got to shave for the first time (much to my humiliation), I took a huge chunk of skin off the shin of my leg...and thought to myself, "OUCH...was it really worth all the anticipation and excitement after all?"  Little did I know that shaving was something that would become a daily thing...and one that I really don't enjoy doing all that much!

I know I'm not alone!  How do I know that?  Because companies are making products to eliminate the need for daily shaving.  Without the demand...these products wouldn't be HUGE on the market like they are!
I was so excited when "The Balancing Act" sent me the new Remington iLight Pro Hair Removal System to review (sent free of charge for this review/feature).  Why was I SOOOO excited?  Well, after the first initial removal (with the possible need for a couple follow up revisits), the need to shave or hair remove could be spaced out in (UP TO) 6 month increments.  AWESOME!  So much more appealing to me than shaving daily or even weekly (if you NAIR or use that type of hair removal product).
So, because I was new to this system...the DVD came in very handy...to get me started on the road to "AT HOME" hair removal.
I decided that my armpits were a good starting point.  Being blessed with naturally dark hair...my armpits are definitely a DAILY shaving area.  Even hours after shaving...it can appear that I didn't shave that day!  I figured that if I could take care of that would be an excellent JUMPING OFF point. 
So, last night I shaved my armpits and made sure they were good and dry.  Then I plugged in the iLight Pro and got started in the process of hair removal.  I'm not going to lie...it gives a good zap (even on the lowest setting)...but in the long term of things, I would rather a little pain then the daily annoyance of shaving.  It didn't HURT...but again, it was on the lowest setting and it was my first time using it too!

Listen to my VLOG about my experience:



Curious how much this system costs?  It's under $250 and if you went into a salon to have treatments, it would cost far more.  Plus, you can do it from the comfort of your own bathroom or wherever you are comfortable doing it.  You could probably even do it in front of the TV at night!
Don't worry...I will be doing a follow up to this review...in a few weeks, to let you know the results of the whole system!  Will it be worth your investment??  I have a good feeling about it, but we'll see.

I was not paid to feature this post!  I was compensated only by the product sent for review/feature!  This feature will also be included on "The Balancing Act" website!

great post. I remember my first time shaving too, for some reason my mother was very against it. Looking forward to the follow up blog.
