I saw in ad in a magazine for a new connair electric hair buffing system. I'm not sure if it's in stores yet, but I'd be interested in seeing if it works. If anyone decides to try it, can you write a review here? Thanks! [Smile]

STAMFORD, Conn. - March 27, 2003 - Conair has removed the pain out of hair removal with its innovative Conair Hair Removal System, a plug-in appliance that involves two fine-grain exfoliating pads that rotate in two different directions, reducing hair into dust.

In addition, the soft sandpaper-like pads exfoliate skin as they remove unwanted hair on arms and legs. The Conair Hair Removal System, which includes four replacement pads, will be available in both mass and department store for $69.99.

Yeah,
I'd like some more info about this product also. Apparently it's pain-free and it can last for up to two weeks.

Two weeks?! Now I'm a little suspicious. But if that were actually all true I'd easily pay that price for such a miracle. [Smile] *crosses fingers*

Do you really believe that sandpapering your hair away will be painless? Most cultures left friction behind when shaving became a possibility.

You can tell what this company thinks of the product just by looking at the price. $70 for a hand held body sander? It is the Epi-Lady all over again. You can't return it because I bet there is no way to sterilize it after first use, so once you bought it, you are just out the money.

Do you realize that you can by Black and Decker sanders for wood at that price?

Would this be similar to the process that the mittens to remove hair uses? Cause the hair removal mittons aren't painful.

Update:

I ended up trying this a few months back, but the results were nowhere near my expectations. Although it was't painful, it didn't remove hairs very well at all. The good news is I bought it at one of those drugstores that lets you return anything you're not satisfied with. It could be worth a try as long as you're sure you can return it.

Don't waste your money. I tried it for a while (on my thick male hair) and found that it only reduces the hair down to stubble. Shaving was much better. However, on areas with fairly thin hair, such as my arms, it worked pretty good, sometimes giving an appearance close to that on waxing.
