Prove It! The Pearl Hair Remover Review

When it comes to at home hair removal, I usually just say no. Maybe I'm lazy. Or maybe I've had some bad experiences in my adolescence when I randomly decided to shave my arms one afternoon and haven't gained my own trust back yet. Would the Pearl take me a step closer to trusting at home hair removal treatments?

Letting Doubts Turn to Experiments

Aside from the weird, stubbly hair that re-grew on my arm after my impulsive hair removal, I've also experienced quite a few at home products that just don't do much that they claim. But when I was offered to try out the Pearl Hair Remover, I thought "You are a blogger; these are the adventures you signed up for!" So here we go. I've braved trying out natural deodorant in the summer and tested out claims of 6000% more moisturized lips. And now onto the Pearl at home hair removal.

What It Claims

The Pearl Hair Remover claims to "utilize revolutionary technology to remove unwanted hair from the body". This 'revolutionary' tool uses thermo-transmitter technology, which "radiates heat down into the hair follicle, slowing down the growth of hair. Continuous slowing of hair growth promotes longer lasting results and does not irritate skin."




Alright, So Prove It!

I decided to try the Pearl on my legs to start. It's winter still and if something happens, no one would know for at least a good few weeks. Beginning to use the tool was a little awkward for me. You need to hold it at the correct angle in order for the thermo-transmitter to work properly, otherwise the little light does not come on and nothing is happening. I figured it out by the third try and that is when I started seeing better hair removal results. One of the highlights of the Pearl versus another similar tool I've used recently is that it is very quiet, instead of emitting a loud, buzzing noise like other hair removal tools.

The Pearl did not remove all of the hair on my legs, but did get a large majority. I suppose you could continue to go over the same spots but after ten minutes of the burning hair smell (that they tell you is going to happen, so don't freak out), I felt pleased with the amount of hair removal and used a razor for rest, and for my knee area as it is tough to hold the Pearl at the right angle around the knees.

I did notice that the hair grew back slower than normal, and best of all my sensitive skin did not have any kind of reaction to the thermo-transmitter tool. In fact, I had fewer bumps and redness than I do when shaving even. The product retails at $199.99, so this is an investment (though I've recently seen it selling for around $115 online). If you're ready to commit to regular use and practice with the Pearl Hair Remover, it could definitely be worth it for you. I'm planning to introduce Pearl to my arms soon and see if the relationship takes off.
