I was sent to try and test this nono hair remover. I don't have that much hair on my arms and legs so when it comes to hair removal, it's just my underarm that concern me. I usually shave them as I find plucking painful and takes so long. I want everything quick, like shaving, but my problem is that they grow quickly and I needs to shave several times a week to keep it at bay.
I have seen good and bad reviews of the nono hair remover and to see its price which is £149.99 I thought it's a bit pricey so it has to be worth it. Personally, I was scared to use it the first time because I don't know how to properly use it. It's important that you read the user manual.
The package content included :
- No no micro
- Pouch / bag
- Wide and narrow tip
- Cleaning brush for the tip
First charge it took at least 5 hours. It comes with 2 tips: Narrow tip for small sensitive areas like face, neck, underarm, and bikini line. Wider tip for large areas like the arms, chest and back.
Before using it you have to make sure that the area is clean and dry and free of any chemical such as cream and deodorants etc. I would also recommend practicing on smooth and even skin surface like your legs or arms before moving to face, underarm and bikini line.
You glide the no no micron at 90 degree angle, with the roller flat against your skin and the logo facing in the direction you are travelling. You have to glide one way only and use a steady, smooth and even motion. When you are gliding at the proper speed, a blue light will be steady. You may need to glide 4-6 passes then buff after each treatment. Also when using it, you may notice a burning smell because the pulse is meant to target hair follicle, not just the hairs themselves, to slow down the growth of hair for semi permanent hair removal.
I have noticed that it has slowed down the growth of my underarm hair since using it but when it comes to removing hair, it won't immediately remove my under arm hair as fast as shaving, it is definitely a long term treatment.
Personally, at first few uses I felt that it hadnt really removed a lot of hair and I thought that it's not working for me. However, to be fair with the no no micron hair removal, it's meant to be use through a period of time before seeing a result. It takes time and patience as everyone has a unique pattern of hair growth. This will work easier for thinner hair compare to thicker hair. I've notice that when I tried it on my arm hair which is thinner compare to my underarm's hair which is thicker.
You also have to be careful when using it as you might get burn or your skin gets too warm. Personally, I don't know if I can justify the price because it didn't easily remove the hair on my underarm. Maybe this isn't good for a quick or instant result but for a long term use. If you ever buy this product, make sure you give it a try for a longer period time before deciding and have a look for a return and refund policy. The warranty period is valid for 1-2 years in Europe.
Now, it's up to you to decide weather it's a nono hair or no buy!
