Sephora No!No! Review

SEPHORA no!no! Contest Give-Away! April 21, 2008 to May 7, 2008

Have you longed for the no!no!? Perhaps, you’ve read all the reviews and really, really want the no!no! but for some reason or another you haven’t been able to get that lovely, hair reduction tool into your hands. What if I were to tell you that one lucky reader will be the owner of a new no!no! – maybe that reader is you! The Sephora No!No! contest is here!


(UPDATE: March 02, 2008– scroll to bottom) The no!no! hair removal system has been delivered into my anxiously awaiting hands. I snapped some photos to show you what comes with the no!no!.

Front view of no!no! in hand for comparison
The no!no! is quite small and from the front view looks as slim as an iPod but it’s not…

Side view of no!no! in hand for comparison
As you can see from the no!no! profile, it’s quite a bit thicker than you would expect. Even thick around the middle, the no!no! was small enough to hold comfortably.

October 3rd 2007 Update:Sephora no!no! Hair Remover in ActionI read the manual and watched the training video – which I highly recommend to any one who purchases this product.

Despite reading the manual and following the instructions I still had a problem figuring out which blade was for long hair and which one was for short hair. I can be ditsy at times so it’s probably only me who would get confused but the blades themselves weren’t labeled and just looking at the illustration in the manual didn’t really help. As I said I can be a bit obtuse when it comes to mechanical things. I’d recommend that the no!no! manufacturer find a way to label the blades themselves – just a little product design tip :)

Once I figured out which blade I needed to tackle the long hairs, I then started putting the no!no! together. The instructions for this part were thorough and I had the no!no setup in less than a minute. The no!no! uses direct power (no battery operation) and the on and off switch are directly on the power supply. With the power button switched to “on” there are no indicators/light signals to tell you the no!no! is ready for use – it just is.

Hairy leg pre-no!no
My hairy pre-no!no! leg. I never realized how ugly my legs could look at such close range – scary.

I was apprehensive about applying the no!no! to my skin – bad memories of my teen years and the medieval hair removing torture device called the EpiLady – I hesitated for a bit and then just pressed down and got started.

The no!no! hair removal device doesn’t hurt and my fears of EpiLady hair-ripping pain were put to rest :)

According to the manual to effectively use the no!no! you need to “glide” – it’s a method that you quickly learn thanks to the no!no!’s signal light. The signal light will be a steady green when you’re working at the right speed and start to flicker when your timing is off. Within minutes I was comfortably gliding.

no!no! removing hair
Using the no!no! is quite easy and the green signal light here shows that I’m gliding correctly.

As I glided the no!no! across the test areas on my leg I noticed the smell of hair being singed but no pain. There was a bit of discomfort when I stopped in one area for too long -it felt like being snapped with rubber bands – but that was operator error. Within five minutes I felt like a pro. The green light held steady and the hair was coming off.

I also had stubble on my legs (hair still growing in from the last waxing) so I tried out the stubble hot blade and that worked just as well as the hot blade for long hair.I did have some difficulty getting at the hair on my knees. It’s going to take practice because gliding on round surfaces is a bit challenging. I will practice that technique over the next few days and will dutifully report back.

After removing the hair on the test section I noticed that my skin felt like it had one-day old stubble on it. That feeling didn’t last long once I started buffing (exfoliating) with the no!no! buffer pad. When I finished buffing the test section my skin was as soft as the skin of my five month old niece – just silky smooth.

The real test for the no!no! will be the reduction in hair density. Over the next eight weeks I will document my use and the results of the no!no! for permanent hair removal system.

    I will be anxiously awaiting your review of this! I am curious if it’s really pain-free, and if it works! After all of my experiences with laser hair removal, I am wondering how this will compare.

    Hi Jeni,

    It’s definitely pain-free.

    This will be an incredible and affordable at home hair removal tool if it does perform as promised. I can’t wait to see what my results will be eight weeks from today.

    Thanks for the review. I can’t wait to hear about the long term no!no! results.

    I have a few questions I hope you can answer:

    How does the no!no! compare to waxing?

    Do you get stubble the next day or does it stay smooth?

    I noticed that your legs aren’t that hairy maybe it’s the photo – you did say you had stubble coming in, so do you think that the no!no! would work on someone who has a lot of hair?

    How long does it take to remove hair on your legs using the no!no!? Is it as fast as shaving?

    Thanks again.

    Hi Loren,

    Here are answers to your question:

    The no!no! is truly pain-free. Waxing is torture for me and then theres the sticky wax residue that seems to stick to me no matter how wonderful my wax lady is (and she’s a doll).

    I didn’t get stubble the next day, however, today I’m sporting some rough stubble – yuck. The stubble is more like stubble from a waxed leg instead of a shaved leg in that it doesn’t feel angled or sharp.

    Sorry about the images – when I got to close to my legs with the camera (even in detail mode) everything got out of focus. It’s easy to see the long hairs the stubble just showed up on the pictures as a thousand dirty pores. I really do have hairy legs just most of that hair right now is in stubble mode. I will also (working up the courage to do so) use the no!no! on my hairy arms. The hair on my arms has long caused me distress and I would love to see the hair disappear. Pictures will be forthcoming – once I work up the nerve to no!no! my arm.

    The no!no! took me WAY longer to use to remove the hair than if I had shaved. Granted I’m still new to using the no!no! I have a feeling that it will always be slower than shaving. From my limited experience I’d say to reserve a block of time to use the no!no! – when you aren’t in a rush. The key to no!no!s effectiveness is to use if often (3 x a week) and use it correctly and that requires patience and a block of uninterrupted/non -rushed time.

    Fernanda Says:

    Did you try it on your bikini-area? How about armpits?

  6. 6

    ms. distressedDerma Says:

    Hi Fernanda,

    Haven’t no!no!-ed either of those areas yet. The hot blades do have limited life-spans so I am concentrating on my legs for this review and as I mentioned to Loren – my arms.

    I’m just a bit nervous about doing my arms because I have to be really flexible to do my right arm well. I am lousy using my left hand for painting my nails so am just a bit afraid of the quality of hair removal I will experience using the no!no! with my left hand. I am tempted to approach my husband, sisters or friends to help :)

    ms. distressedDerma Says:

    Hi Cylan,

    The no!no! can be used by men or women.

    Hi Belinda,

    The replacements are inexpensive. You can buy them at Sephora – they sell them in combos for $21.00.
