Having been epilating my legs for a few months, I was beginning to get really irritated by the number of ingrown hairs I found. I've always exfoliated before epilation and I was thinking I was going to run out of options. I tried out Silkymits having read about people with similar problems who had had some success.
The product is essentially a little tube of fine sandpaper through which you can place your hand. I personally found it quite difficult to keep a hold on but I do have particularly small hands so that may be why!
The sensation of applying to mit to skin is not at all uncomfortable (as you might expect of sandpaper!) and you can see the exfoliating effect in the dust that accumulates very quickly.
Unfortunately, I didn't notice any effect at all (I'd allowed the hair to grow back a little before use to see if the hair removal effect was any good). No hair was removed and my ingrown hairs stayed exactly where they were. I do, however, have very dark, coarse hair that I've never even been able to wax successfully, so I imagine that's the problem (this is the reason I give three stars, rather than two. I can envisage much better results with fine or light hair).
One benefit of the mits was that my skin felt lovely: once I did epilate, I could tell the difference, so if nothing else, these things are good for exfolation! They're also very cheap so it may well be worth a try, particularly if you have fine hair.
