EZ Cracker Egg Cracker Separator Review

ez-cracker-egg-cracker-separator-review01The EZ Cracker Egg Cracker Separator is an As Seen on TV product that you can purchase from online specialized stores and also from Amazon, EBay or your local Walmart. It is a kitchen device that prides itself in its capacity of cracking eggs in an instant without any shell spills; separating the yolk from the egg-white without any mess and which can remove the shell from oiled eggs with little effort. This EZ Cracker Egg Cracker Separator review aims to discover if the product is as efficient as it is marketed.

Features

The device offers anybody who wants to cook fast and well the opportunity to save time and avoid little kitchen accidents by helping them manage raw or boiled eggs with little time and effort. It can crack an egg without supplemental spills or shell drops in the food and the supplemental attachment can help separate cleanly the yolk from the rest of the egg. It also can help people to avoid the unpleasant and long task of pealing boiled eggs. The device is build out of plastic and consists in two plastic handles, rings and a claw. It also comes with a bonus attachment which helps the yolk separation be clean and fast.

Reasons to buy the EZ Cracker Egg Cracker Separator

–          Only if you think of yourself as a cooking gadget guruez-cracker-egg-cracker-separator-review02

Users who bought and wrote an EZ Cracker Egg Cracker Separator review seem to have mixed emotions and conclusions after using the device a few times. The function of cracking eggs is reviewed positively most of the times, but with a few amendments on the time saved and on the shell spills: testers and customers tracked the time necessary for the device to crack the eggs and found that the old classic way using your bare hands is much more efficient. Also, after a number of consecutive usages, the device begins to become messy, as it leaves small shreds of egg shell from one egg to the next, making them land eventually in the bowl. The reviewers admitted the device works on a number of limited occasions (large eggs, skilled cooks), but for a regular morning omelet, they recommend cracking the eggs by yourself.

–          Only if you resent getting messy

The separation of the yolk is considered not as efficient as marketed, although many people bought the item especially for avoiding getting messy and sticky on their hands when manipulating a large batch of eggs at a time. The process of getting the yolk separated from the egg white can become similarly messy, especially if you use smaller eggs that slip, or if you use a very large egg and the egg white spills for not having enough room to being deposited safely.

Consumer Issues and Concerns

ez-cracker-egg-cracker-separator-review03The device has been tested not only by customers, but also by professionals concerned with consumer products’ efficiency and cost balance. The main concern everybody mentioned in more than just one EZ Cracker Egg Cracker Separator review is the fact that the product doesn’t efficiently separate the yolk, but can sometimes crack the yolk itself, creating the yolk to spill. Also, small eggs slip out of the device, while if using large eggs, there is a chance that the separation process to be unsuccessful due to the large quantity of liquid that cannot be properly contained. Also, the shell peeling was described by users as being useless, as the device just cracks in half a boiled egg. Another problem mentioned by the users was that the device is not dishwasher safe; therefore cleaning it takes a lot of time, much more than washing your hands after manually cracking an egg. Also there is no guarantee on the shell shreds being kept away from the bowl or the pan, as the device itself may gather small egg parts after consecutive usage that end up in an omelet or a baking dough.

The Verdict

Taking into account all users’ perspectives on the product, the verdict of this EZ Cracker Egg Separator review cannot be positive. Consumers consider it as being an improper device to use as long as it keeps its current features, as it doesn’t save more time than cracking eggs by hand, doesn’t help keeping the shell shreds away from the bowl and it is inconsistent in its efficiency by working properly only a few times, depending on the egg’s size, shell toughness and the user’s skills.

The Amazing Comfort Ahh Bra Review

amazing-comfort-bra-review01The Amazing Comfort Bra – AHH BRA is an As Seen on TV product available on online stores such as Boscov’s or even on Amazon and is often considered the best choice of bra for women who hate (or suffer less) this type of woman apparel. The Ahh Bra is created out of a soft material that lets the skin breathe and doesn’t let anything show under a dress or a blouse, having also the advantage of being comfortable, as it doesn’t inflict unnecessary pressure on the breasts or doesn’t keep the skin tight. It offers support and due to its design, it can be worn even with larger V – neck cleavage. The purpose of this Amazing Comfort Bra review is to take into account all the Ahh Bra’s features and users’ opinions and to find out if it is really as comfortable, easy to use, “invisible” and efficient as it looks like to be.

Features

The Ahh Bra comes in all cup sizes and it is designed to offer the best support possible, competing even with professional sports bras. Its design also makes it wearable under more fancy outfits, such as dresses or V-neck blouses and it leaves no room for interpretation even if women choose to wear thinner (and sometimes transparent) layers of cloth, as it offers the same features of a classic bra. It also gives women a natural comfort as it doesn’t make movement uncomfortable no matter how intense motion is (at the gym, around the house, walking downtown or having to spend numerous hours walking from one place to another at the office) and, most importantly, they don’t leave unpleasant marks, sores or deep imprints on the skin, as some regular bras do. Sweat is also a problem resolved: one major issue with wearing bras in the hot summer is that they really affect and damage the skin due to perspiration. The Ahh Bra, being created out of a material that lets the skin breathe naturally, doesn’t cause prolonged wearing to become uncomfortable or even painful.

Reasons to buy the Ahh Bra

–          It is very comfortableamazing-comfort-bra-review02

Women who bought and wore the Ahh Bra mentioned the comfort it brought to them in more than just one Amazing Comfort Bra review. Users say it is light and easy to wear and by the middle of the day, they actually forgot they are wearing a bra under their clothes.

–          It is very practical

One Amazing Comfort Bra review says the product can successfully replace a classic bra and since it comes in nude and black colors, it can be worn with almost any type of colored blouse or dress. Moreover, the design allows the user to opt for larger cleavages, stay safe from sweating and wear it even in the gym, around the house and in the office. Many users claimed they even replaced their regular gym bras with this one, as it seems to offer much more support and comfort, while letting the skin to breathe.

–          It is more than affordable

In an online Amazing Comfort Bra review users that had ordered this bra also referred to its cost – productiveness balance, as being quite cheap, it offers numerous advantages to women uncomfortable or refusing to wear regular bras. The cheap price is also a buying factor for the ones who just needed a good replacement for a professional gym bra.

Consumer Issues and Concerns

amazing-comfort-bra-review03

Not everybody was happy with the Ahh Bra and women’s troubles revolve around two major points. The first one regards the front band which is a little bit wider than women expected and thus it tends to roll under the clothes. However, even if many women reported that their bands seem to roll, this isn’t something to bother them, as the aesthetics of a dress or an office shirt isn’t ruined by this aspect. Also, the rolled front band across the chest might inflict some pressure on the tissues and become uncomfortable at prolonged wear, but women didn’t mention this as being a trouble, on the contrary, many of them suggested that by bringing minor adjustments to their everyday look (while wearing the bra) turned out perfectly. The second issue concerns however, the fact that the bra isn’t fit for all women, due to the fact that some of them wear much larger bra cups than the average woman, for which the product was apparently created. The level of support was reported very low for women who wear double or triple C and D.

The Verdict

All in all the Ahh Bra is considered comfortable, easy to use, and adjustable to almost every need, time of day and occasion. Just as a dress model can’t be perfect for all women alive, this bra also comes with some disadvantages for women wearing C and D cups. However, the majority of Amazing Comfort Bra reviews spoke in favor of the bra, considering it not only useful, safe, fashionable and cheap, but also easy to maintain and keep, a worthy asset especially for those suffering the smallest consequences in pain and discomfort produced by the regular bras.

Space Bag Under-Bed Vacuum Tote Review

Space-Bag-Under-Bed-Vacuum-Tote-Review01The Space Bag Under-Bed Vacuum Tote is an As Seen on TV product that you can purchase from online specialized stores such as Target or from Amazon.com. It is a jumbo-sized storage bag with a vacuum that can store a variety of items, from bedding sets, pillows, blankets and even voluminous winter jackets or sweaters. Due to the fact that it presents a vacuum feature, it can be stored in otherwise unusable storage spaces such as the floor under your bed, although it can be safely stored on the top of dressers and in indoor storage rooms or dressings. This Space Bag Under-Bed Vacuum Tote review aims to discover if the product is as efficient as it is marketed.

Features

According to more than just one online Space Bag Under-Bed Vacuum Tote review, this product for the home offers the users a storage space up to four times more efficient than regular storage boxes or bags, due to its vacuum sealing. The material is resistant enough to keep the items inside safe from dust deposits, mildew, moth attacks, moist and odors. It is made out of plastic and nylon compounds which represent an efficient barrier against dust or dirt, while the locking strips make it also easy to transport, to move and to keep. The zipper system makes it easy for the user to insert and take out the stored items in and from the Space Bag Under-Bed Vacuum Tote, while the bag can be cleaned and maintained only by being dust-wiped.

Reasons to buy the Space Bag Under-Bed Vacuum Tote

–          It is very practicalSpace-Bag-Under-Bed-Vacuum-Tote-Review02

Users who bought this product often claimed they will buy even more pieces, as they provide an incredible storage room for large items to be kept safe during seasons. Also its portability makes it ideal for those who intend to move to another place or live in small apartments that leave little storage space around the house. Given the fact that it can fit under a bed, any aesthetic issues regarding storage and organization around the house are resolved, as the bag can be easily hidden either under the bed or in less circulated areas.

–          It keeps the stored items safe

While storing their clothes, winter jackets, bed settings, blankets or pillows, consumers stated that they faced inherent damage suffered by their items due to dust, moths, moist (and subsequently – mildew), even rodents or their own pets. Another Space Bag Under-Bed Vacuum draws the conclusion that the vacuum tote seals the items inside very well, preserving them even for longer periods of time, say the whole summer or winter season, depending on what it is stored there.

–          It is easy reliable and safe

Its practicality doesn’t come from just being able to store a lot of items into one place, but because the space bag is carefully designed and sealed, and, most importantly, because it is strong and reliable enough to be carried around in major movements, as from one state to another and even one country to another, without being damaged by transportation or heavy manipulation.

Consumer Issues and Concerns

Space-Bag-Under-Bed-Vacuum-Tote-Review03There are two major concerns people drew attention upon after using the Space Bag Under-Bed Vacuum Tote and these ones referred to the fact that some of them found miniature holes in the bag which rapidly transformed into tears which, of course, made the bag impossible to use. It happens sometimes that some products come with manufacturing errors, but most of the times, complaints and refunds solve the problem. These were reported only as very low-incident cases. The other issue which is more probable to concern many users is that even if they used the vacuum feature, the bag didn’t get the sharp square box shape they saw in commercials, but a bulky shape that not only looked bad but was hard to fit under the bed. One Space Bag Under-Bed Vacuum Tote review from a long term user admits that not always the bag gets a perfect box shape, but advises the inexperienced ones to try placing the items in the bag in different positions in order to get the best results. It is a matter of training and being careful on how to use the vacuum feature and the zipper sealing.

The Verdict

Taking into account all users’ perspectives on the product, the verdict cannot be but a positive one, as given the price and the high rankings the product have among customers, it has proven its worth. Few customers complained about it being too fragile and thus tearing apart at manipulation, while others appraised its storing qualities at full value. It is a good acquisition for those who live in small spaces and those who want to keep their seasonal clothes or apparel safe from environmental damages.

Heat Surge Review

heat-surge-review03This Heat Surge review aims to explore whether or not the Amish crafted heater is worth the money, given its qualities. It explores several issues taken against the heater’s manufacturers, but also takes a close look at the product’s aspect, its claims at saving the buyers money, and its efficiency in heating up the rooms inside a house. If the thought of buying an electric heater that looks like a fire place appeals to you, read on to find out whether or not this particular device is worth it.

Features

As mentioned by many another Heat Surge review, this product is also known as ‘the Amish Heater’. That’s because the producers were adamant to make it clear that the heaters’ cabinets are all handmade by the Amish community. It’s not a bad selling point, considering it attracted a lot of support from consumer advocates, as well as from buyers who specifically purchased this product, as a show of support for the Amish. Indeed, it seems this claim is true, but there is at least one Heat Surge review out there which claims the cabinet isn’t that well made after all.heat-surge-review01

The heater is small (2 feet tall and 2.5 feet wide) and comes with two power levels (750 watts and 1,500 watts, respectively). The front of the heater displays faux flames, which are lit up by two bulbs. There are also fake logs inside, in order to best emulate a traditional fire place. The cabinet is set up on wheels and the device can be controlled through a remote.

Reasons to Buy the Heat Surge

–          It’s remote controlled

The remote control system will allow you to alter most of the settings of the Heat Surge Roll-n-Glow from a distance. You can change the power, the thermal output, and you can even make the flames less bright.

–          It’s easy to move

Although most reviews of the device are focused on its claim to save money, the one Heat Surge review focusing on the product’s features that we found highly praised the ease with which it can be transported from one place to the next. That’s because the cabinet is set up on wheels, but also because the space heater itself doesn’t take up that much space.

–          It’s life-like

As seen on TV products for the home can be controversial. But the producers of the Heat Surge Roll-n-Glow invested a lot of attention to detail into making the heater look like an actual, real-life fireplace. We think their efforts paid off and that the end result looks as much as a fireplace as it possibly could have. The fake flames look attractive when the heater is turned on and the glow it radiates is a pleasant addition to any room.

Consumer Issues and Concerns

–          It doesn’t come with a thermostat

As one Heat Surge online review has noticed, you can’t adjust the temperature to finer degrees, since the device doesn’t come with a thermostat. This makes it rather awkward to use, as it either tends to overheat or to under-heat the rooms in which it is placed, depending on their size.

–          It doesn’t actually save the buyers money

heat-surge-review02A lot of importance is placed in the Heat Surge infomercials on the fact that the product can save buyers money. However, according to another Heat Surge review, this claim isn’t exactly supported by the facts. Even though the device is made in China and comes in a relatively small size, it’s similarly priced to other products in its category. In other words, buyers might opt for a different electric fireplace which would cost them just about the same, but generate more heat – perhaps even warming up several rooms at a time. To boot, since it can only be purchased directly from its producer, it can end up running high shipping costs.

The Verdict

The conclusion of our Heat Surge review has more to do with the company that manufactures the device than with the heater itself. While the issue of affordability does put an dampen on an otherwise quality product, it’s important to note that the process of returning the device is complicated, time-consuming and costly. There have been hundreds of complaints filed against the producers of the Heat Surge for this reason, so make sure you weigh your options carefully before selecting this particular space heater.

Greenwash Ball Review

greenwash-ball-review01Have you ever gone through the pain of carrying all your due laundry to the laundry room, only to discover that, to your great dismay, you are fresh out of detergent? Not only is this annoying, but it also brings up the issue of cost: detergent isn’t exactly the cheapest thing to buy these days. The Greenwash Ball promises to clean your laundry with absolutely no detergent. According to the producers, the ball contains natural ceramics, which bounce around during the washing process and automatically increase the pH levels in the water, thus cleaning your laundry with absolutely no need for adding detergent. Our Greenwash Ball review looks at the experience of customers that have purchased the device and tested it, in hopes of finding out if it actually works.

Features

The Greenwash Ball is available for sale online and can be purchased on Amazon, for only $6.99. It is marketed as an environmentally-friendly product, since it makes no use of detergents. Detergents contain some chemical ingredients, which are potentially harmful for the environment. The Greenwash Ball, on the other hand, activates a natural principle, which allegedly helps clean clothes. It also has a textured surface, which claims to loosen up the dirt accumulated into the fabric. The producers claim each ball can be used for up to 1,000 laundry loads, but we’ve found no Greenwash Ball review to confirm this figure. Each set contains two balls.

Reasons to Buy the Greenwash Ball

–          It saves moneygreenwash-ball-review02

By not having to buy detergent every other couple of months, many users found they could efficiently save money. The Greenwash Ball will not show any signs of deterioration, even after prolonged usage, according to at least one Greenwash Ball review we found online.

–          Works well with light stains

There is at least one user who claims the ball works very well for removing light stains off of clothes. One more enthusiastic buyer says it even helped remove pet odor from a mat, thereby turning him from a skeptic into a ‘believer’.

–          Can be used to reduce detergent consumption

A Greenwash Ball review that is more on the skeptical side explains that, while they gave up on using the ball by itself, it still helped them use less detergent than before. Other users, which employ the ball alone, add scented pellets in the wash, to make clothes smell fresh.

Consumer Issues and Concerns

–          It’s not scented

One Greenwash Ball review explains that it’s virtually impossible to tell if the device actually works, since the clothes don’t come out smelling ‘clean’ from the washer. In other words, unlike with detergent, which lends a certain perfume to the wash load, the Greenball will not make your clothes smell like anything at all. Some users complain that after using nothing but the ball for a while, their clothes and laundry start ‘stinking’.

–          Users can’t tell if it works or not

greenwash-ball-review03One disappointed user says that all the positive reviews are probably based on first experiences, when there was still some detergent left in the washer from previous loads. Most agree that it’s difficult to tell whether or not the Greenwash Ball actually cleans clothes or not, especially if they are put in the laundry when already relatively clean.

The Verdict

The conclusion of this Greenwash Ball review is that opinions on the product are mixed. It is definitely favored by those who live thriftily and care to save money, as well as by environmentalists, on the lookout for alternatives to making their own cleaning and household supplies. However, its efficiency cannot be really tested or evaluated by average users and would require some more thorough scientific research.

Chef Basket Review

chef-basket-review01The Chef Basket is a self-described ‘cooking dynamo’, which, according to the product’s infomercial, can be used in dozens of different ways for cooking. It allegedly works as a steamer, a colander, and a deep frying basket, to name but a few of its functions. Now, this here Chef Basket review is going to try to see what other reviewers have had to say about the product, and then conclude whether or not the Chef Basket is all it’s cracked up to be, as its producers claim.

Features

The Chef Basket is, in a nutshell, a collapsible, foldable wire mesh basket, which can be used in a wide range of different ways, for cooking purposes. It can be used in a frying pan or a pot, in boiling water or sizzling hot oil. It can be used as a pasta colander, to transfer noodles from the pot into your plate, or it can fry your chicken drumsticks or pounds of potatoes that you want to serve fried at the family dinner. The infomercial, as well as more than one Chef Basket review we found online, only mentioned several functions – the ‘dozens’ did not quite add up. However, it’s safe to say that the Chef Basket is a multi-functional cooking device – a new addition to an already expanding market niche, which focuses on functionality in the kitchen. Once used, the Chef Basket can be folded up, in order to be stored safely.

Reasons to Buy the Chef Basket

–          It doesn’t take up that much space

chef-basket-review02Given its light, wire mesh structure and clever design, the Chef Basket can be easily folded up and stored away. It doesn’t occupy that much space and will certainly not clutter your kitchen. It takes up about as much room as your average trey. Unlike other multi-functional cooking devices, it is not as big as a pot, or a frying pan, which also makes it rather easy to clean and manoeuver.

–          It’s a great steamer

One other Chef Basket review noted that the product is great for usage over a pot of boiling water, for those who prefer their food steamed. You can choose to steam vegetables and rice, if you are so inclined (and tend to favor the Asian cuisines). The Chef Basket can be safely affixed to the edge of the pot and left to steam over the water, with no concerns for the food burning or becoming too mushy.

–          It’s perfect as a colander

After all, one good look at the Chef Basket will tell you that’s just what it is: a mesh colander. As such, if you need a device in which you can easily rinse vegetables, fruit, or even some types of pasta, this one may be the solution you’ve been seeking. It’s easy to handle, thanks to its design, and can help you toss and turn the food under the stream of water, even without you ever getting your hands wet.

DTM_468_60_2

Consumer Issues and Concerns

–          It fits poorly in most pots

Although there is more than just one Chef Basket review out there to attest to its usefulness and efficiency in the kitchen, the truth is that the device will not fit in all pots. It is too big for some, and too small for others – a design flaw which undermines its claims at multi-functionality. Ideally, the Chef Basket should be adjustable, as to fit in as many types of pots and pans as possible.

–          It’s shoddily designed

The actual concept of the Chef Basket is not bad at all, but its construction leaves a lot to be desired. Some reviewers and users have found that the device will simply break when attempting to fold it. Others noticed that, after some usage with heavier food items, it will give in under their weight.

–          Its holes are too big

Perhaps the most relevant Chef Basket review online is a YouTube video, during which the tester attempts to cook pasta in the Chef Basket. The result? He stops mid-way, as he realizes that the holes in the mesh wiring are too big for the spaghetti he was trying to cook. His verdict: “If I can only cook rigatoni, this basket’s useless”.

chef-basket-review03The Verdict

The conclusion of this Chef Basket review is that, while the concept of the device is quite clever, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. Given the problems in design that the product displays, it can actually only be used with relative success to perform a couple of tasks in the kitchen – which pretty much defeats its very purpose for existence.

gogo-pillow-review02Users who bought and used the product speak about its versatility and usefulness in their GoGo Pillow reviews, as both a home tablet stand – one that is comfortable to hold in your lap, on your knees or on the coffee table in front of you – and a reversible car TV holder, as it can keep a tablet safe enough to be hung on the front headrest to become a miniature cinema for those in the back seats. Others appraised its plush cover material and its flexibility of becoming a head and neck support travel pillow that proved its utility especially in plane trips across country.

–          It is easy to use

Many customers feared that being a multi – tasking product, they will meet difficulties in using correctly all the sockets and pockets and make use of the features, but the GoGo proves itself very intuitive and easy to transform from one thing to another.

–          It has special features that always come in handy

Besides from being a tablet stand, the GoGo is provided with elastic bands capable to hold still and keep safe not only the tablet, but other mobile devices, such as a GPS or a smartphone. Due to the elastic stripes, it can also be used as a backpack, especially for children and since it has quite an unique design, powering up a mobile device or connect headphones to it is very easy.

Consumer Issues and Concerns

Some customers that provided a GoGo Pillow review drew the attention regarding the size of the tablet the GoGo allegedly holds in place even during car travels, as tablets vary in sizes and weight. Users who bought the item didn’t complain about the pillow not being able to hold smaller models of iPads or Android tablets, as the bands are elastic and expandable, however, they met some fixing problems when it came to cell phones and Kindle devices, small enough to not perfectly fit in the sockets – not deep enough to hold a Kindle Fire for instance. Another concern was about the devices heating up while buried in the pillow, especially if plugged. Reviewers admitted that tablets seemed to get hot quite fast, but this wasn’t perceived as a problem, as the devices cool down right after they are removed from the pillow – stand. Nobody claimed damages inflicted to the digital devices due to the pillow stand.

gogo-pillow-review03The Verdict

The general conclusion of this particular GoGo Pillow review is that it is a useful multi-purpose item, particularly usable during car rides and long trips, as it can hold in place safely a tablet, for both the front seat passenger aiding the driver with directions (while checking maps on the tablet comfortably placed in their lap) and the back seat passengers who can watch a video, listen to music or browse the Internet. Reviewers consider it a great purchase choice as it is easy to use and maintain and because it can be used as both a tablet stand and a travel pillow, they consider it as a luggage – friendly product and a worthy companion during long trips.

Depil Silk Hair Remover Review

depil-silk-hair-removal-review01The Depil Silk Hair Remover Review is an As Seen On TV cosmetic product that any woman dreamed about at least once in her life time, if not every time she had to get a classic bikini wax. What gives this product its novelty feature is that it is a spray, not a cream and not a cold-wax band and our Depil Silk Hair Remover Review will try to find out if it really works exactly as it says it does.

Features

The Depil Silk Hair Remover pack, available on Rock Bottom Deals, contains six boxes, each of them consisting in two products: one Depil Silk Spray hair remover (4 OZ) and one Facial Hair Remover (0.3 OZ), while being altogether repack shelf pulls. The goal of the product is to help women get rid of unwanted hair on their legs, armpits, arms and bikini line without having to endure a classic painful waxing session, make use of shaving blades or use depilation cream. Given the fact that it takes only five minutes to remove all extra-hair without having negative effects on the skin (irritation, rash, itches), but on the contrary, leaving the skin soft and silky, the product appealed to many women, especially since it comes together with a facial hair remover that has a cooling effect and a fresh enjoyable scent.

Reasons to buy the Depil Silk Hair Remover Pack

  • It is fast, clean and effective

How many times, as a woman, you found yourself in the situation of having to go out, wear a dress or a sleeveless top and not being depilated properly? Consumers who bought and used the product admitted that they managed to be ready for a party or even an intimate date with their partner without having to concern about depilation, as it took only five minutes to solve the problem. Reviewers also appraised the effectiveness of removing facial hair in an instant without having the usual post-waxing skin marks, but felt also cooled down and refreshed. The procedure implies no touch and no messy leftovers, as women using the product only had to spray the hairy area and then wipe it clean with a tissue or a cloth.

  • It smells great

depil-silk-hair-removal-review02Whoever used some depilation crèmes always complaint of the cream’s smell, highly chemical. The Depil Silk Hair Remover spray leaves behind a refreshing cucumber and melon aroma those reviewers enjoyed very much.

  • It doesn’t affect the skin

Unlike many other depilation products, reviewers admitted that the Depil Silk Hair Remover leaves the skin clean and fresh. Being designed with a vitamin enriched moisturizing lotion, the skin doesn’t suffer from chemical burns.

  • It is efficient also for the bikini area

One concern that strolled women’s minds was that the spray might not be effective for removing the bikini area hair, as it tends to have stronger roots only waxing could get rid of. Some reviewers however stated that the spray does it job well even in those areas, even if it had to pass more than five minutes to reach its full potential. On a brighter side, given the sensitivity of the area, some reviewers were perfectly happy with waiting more than 5 minutes, but obtaining a rash and irritation – free skin afterwards.

  • It is effective for men too

Some men tried the product and were pleased to find out that it works for them as well. It may not compensate for beard shaving, but they felt satisfied with the hair removal from armpits and inguinal areas.

Consumer Issues and Concerns

depil-silk-hair-removal-review03Some of the concerns we saw in another online Depil Silk Hair Removal review included the effectiveness of hair removal where hair has deep and strong roots or it is hard to handle. While some reviewers openly admitted that even waxing have failed in some cases, as it left hair roots still buried in or irritating skin marks, others felt completely satisfied by the product’s features, especially by the time spent to get the results and its highly practical added value: small and portable, it was a good companion on holidays, spontaneous and unprepared trips, last – minute party or event attending. Men, although reluctant about the product’s efficiency, stated that the product worked at least within some boundaries imposed by their genetic make-up. It won’t replace shaving, but the male reviewers admitted the product was a good help in times of need. Some of the reviewers were concerned about the amount of time passing between the depilation and the hair growing back, but a final conclusion couldn’t be reached, as it depends mostly on every person’s metabolism and genetics.

The Verdict

Bottom line for this Depil Silk Hair Remover review is that the product works if you need a fast depilation and a risk – free one, namely post-depilation irritations or rashes. Reviewers consider that without a doubt, the spray removes hair efficiently and is a good choice in cases of emergency, in case somebody missed their regular waxing session and during vacations or trips.
