Hair removal isn't something I would normally talk openly and freely about. It's one of those topics I'd prefer not to shout about from the rooftops Yes, this kind of conversation is reserved for private moments—at least I would never bring up my leg shaving habits on a date.
But since I'm a girl who loves summer, tans, new bathing suits, and relaxing long beach trips, I need to pay attention to this absolutely essential beauty routine. Here are my thoughts: shaving is annoying, as it's a daily process that doesn't ever seem to last, and waxing is intimidating. Laser hair removal? Well, I found this process intimidating—until I chatted about it with the lovely Jenny McCarthy, that is.
At a recent Tria roundtable, Jenny sat down with myself and a few ladies to talk about their at-home laser hair removal product, the Tria Hair Removal 4X. Jenny explained that this product is for your body, but, if you find yourself growing some unpleasant hair on your face, it actually can be used on that delicate area as well. She told us that when she first tried it out, she fell in love with it. Judging from the passion in her voice, and the fact that she told me it was her beauty must-have, I totally believed her.
"I knew, judging from their price point, they were serious. I mean, it’s not $29. It’s a treatment. So I tested it out, fell in love with it, and said, 'I want to back it,'" says Jenny.
But the first thing I wanted to know was how painful it was. According to Jenny, it doesn't hurt at all but is more like a "flick." Jenny also filled us in on the the noticeable difference, which is, of course, something I had to know about. "I’ve done three months of treatment, once every other week for some hairier areas. And then for some lighter areas, I’ve done two treatments, and I’ve noticed a difference," says Jenny.
The product is sold on triabeauty.com for $449 and will be released in fun colors in July.
