DOES IT WORK? Smooth Away


MADISON (WKOW) -- You asked, and we listened.  27 News tested the Smooth Away hair removal pads in this week's Does it Work? segment.

The small pink pads promise to easily buff away unwanted hair anywhere -- legs, arms, etc. 

We bought a Smooth Away and asked four recent female UW grads to test it.

Megan loved it.  She says it made her legs extremely smooth and says she'd buy the product.

Sophie was also impressed.  She tried it on her arm, and said she was surprised it was so smooth and not coarse at all.

Molly's results weren't as impressive.  She tried it on her legs.  Molly said the Smooth Away didn't give her legs as close a shave as a razor does.  She said she probably wouldn't buy it.

Liz was also not extremely impressed.  She agreed the product made her legs smooth, but she says she'd probably stick with a razor because that's what she's used to.  She also preferred the closeness of a razor shave.

We're going to give the Smooth Away 3.5 stars out of 5.  Some of our product testers really liked it.  It seemed to work well in some cases and decently in all of them.  We think it's probably a matter of personal preference.
