The Best New De-Fuzzers For A Smooth, Stubble-Free Summer

Now that the weather has finally warmed up, raise your hand if your first thought was “Yay, sundresses!” and your second was “Oh, crap.” Such was our train of thought upon realizing that after months of neglecting our hairier parts, the jig is now up: There’s no more hiding our furry gams beneath pants, tights, and leggings.

Coming to our rescue is a crop of new, totally nifty ways to quickly and effectively remove any unwanted body — or facial — hair. From fancy razors to at-home laser kits (yes, you read that right) it’s never been easier to de-fuzz in the privacy of your casa. Check out our picks, and let us know — how will you be getting bikini-ready this season?



Forget what you remember about those clunky razors with the huge, built-in moisturizing bars — this ergonomic razor has petite ones that make for a smooth, flawless, and safe shave. 

Gillette Venus & Olay Sugarberry Scent Razor, $10.65, available at


We know, we know — at-home lasering? Sounds a little scary, but this FDA-cleared device has been tested by dermatologists and plastic surgeons for safe use at home. If you’ve considered permanent hair removal but think the idea of multiple office sessions far too pricey, this device can provide similar results at a more reasonable price. 

Silk’n Flash & Go Permanent Hair Removal Device, $299, available at Sephora.


For longer-lasting results than shaving, try an eplilator — the device removes hair at the root, which means that your smooth results can last up to six months. This pick from Clio includes a mini trimmer — ideal for detail work. 

Clio Palm Perfect Cordless Epilator, $49.99, available at Ulta.


If facial hair is the bane of your existence, try this brand-new, fresh-smelling potion from Bliss — ideal for areas such as the upper lip or hairline.

Ever been burned — literally — by at-home heated wax treatments? Give these new Nair strips a go — their logo fades when they’ve heated to the right temperature, so no more guesswork and singed skin.

Love multitasking? Then check out Braun’s new SpinSpa: It removes hair (even hairs as short as .5 milimeters!), and gives your skin an exfoliation treatment with its 10,000 vibrating bristles. Talk about an overachiever!

In our experience, there is nothing worse than a cheap disposable razor — and the razor burn and inevitable nicks they leave behind. Well, forget your fears of flimsy plastic and dull blades — these new Schick disposables include five blades with built-in moisturizers to baby your skin while they shave extra-close. 

Schick Hydro 5 Disposables, $9.99, available at


We dig this easy-to-use wax kit because it’s goof-proof. Simply heat the wax inside the roller and glide it on — the wax will never apply too thickly or too thinly, so you get the exact right amount, every time. 

Remington Smooth & Silky Electric Roll-On Wax Kit, $19.97, available at Walmart.
