We’re doing a series of product reviews here at Wit & Delight where I offer more in-depth information on tried-and-true products I’ve been using for months (or years) that have changed my daily routine for the better. These reviews are meant to provide detailed information about products that may be of interest to you, so if you’re in the market for such an item, you have all the information you need to decide whether or not to make a purchase.
Wit & Delight content creator Greta and I share our personal reviews of this product. We talked a bit about this product on Instagram and there was such a positive response that I wanted to share more details in a blog post.
I want to point out that the decision to remove or maintain body hair is a very personal one. We are sharing this for anyone who is interested in learning more about this at-home hair removal option. If you are not interested in body waxing, skip this post!
We both have this product since January 2022. The brand gifted this product to each of us, but this post is not sponsored in any way. We just wanted to share our experiences with it as we have both found it very useful.
How often do you use this device?
Kate: Honestly, I rushed into this product when I first got it last winter (without reading the instructions for use…I do not recommend this!) and used it on my legs every other day for several weeks. The brand recommends using it twice a week for the first two months to see permanent results, followed by a maintenance treatment once every 1-2 months if needed.
I took a break from using the product last summer as it is recommended to avoid sun exposure on treated areas immediately after use. I plan to resume using it this winter, with both maintenance treatments on my legs as needed and a full treatment on my underarms.
Greta: I used the product consistently last winter, twice a week for eight weeks, as recommended by the brand, on my underarms, legs, and bikini line. I wanted to make sure I was getting a good amount of use while keeping my skin as protected from sun exposure as possible. I plan to do maintenance treatments as needed this winter.
What is your routine when using The Flasher by Nood?
Kate: I suggest following Nood’s recommended routine, which you can find on their website here. They also have a lot of additional information on their FAQ page and on their blog.
Greta: My process consists of showering, exfoliating with Nood’s exfoliating cleanser and shaving in the shower, drying my skin completely after the shower, and following in The Flasher’s footsteps. Afterwards, I moisten my skin very well.
What is your overall opinion of how effectively this device removes body hair?
Kate: I find this product works well in terms of lengthening the amount of time between shavings. I have fairly soft hair and it has been effective for me. I find that much less hair regrows on my legs now and any hair that does grow is thinner. It was really nice to be able to see a noticeable difference relatively quickly.
Greta: This product has helped thin my hair, lengthening the time between each shave. On the back of my legs, the hair has not grown back at all. It has also drastically improved my problems with ingrown hairs.
Overall I think this is an efficient and effective device that is easy to use. It definitely takes a commitment to see results, but I think it has been well worth saving the money you would have spent on in-clinic laser hair removal.
Is there a problem that you have noticed with the product?
Kate: I haven’t noticed any problems with the product itself, although it is a little painful to use (but not nearly as painful as getting a wax).
Greta: No, I really love everything about it. It’s even less painful than I expected. I would liken “zaps” to a slight pinch or snap of a rubber band. I experience the most discomfort during bikini line treatment, which I believe is partly due to the awkward angle required to treat the area myself.
Kate: Anyone who wants the convenience of long-term hair removal from the comfort and privacy of home should consider purchasing this product. At $299 (currently on sale for $209!) it’s also significantly less expensive than regular waxing or consistent laser hair removal treatments.
Greta: I think this product would be great for anyone considering laser hair removal, for whatever reason, but not particularly thrilled with the financial commitment. I’ve always wanted to get laser hair removal, but it seemed like a big investment, so I’m glad this option is available!
