My life is to make everything around me beautiful.

Okay, another experiment, chicks.

Yes! Yes!
Recently, I purchased this No!No!. Have you ever heard of it? Nooooo... Well, I'm here to tell ya. It's supposed to be the best thing since nose jobs. I kid you not. Now, since we alllll know I'm an old lady with lip and chin hairs and have tried the electrolysis bit—and let me tell you right here that to get a treatment from Daisy Lee (which is what we'll call his lady) wasn't so much a treatment but an experience!

Once when daughter was visiting I asked her if she'd go with me to Daisy Lee's for the treatment. She agreed and since she was in the room and my daughter and Daisy Lee both love cats they got carried away with the conversation and nearly bar-b-qued my chin and lips! I am not joking. Daughter could tell I was in distress, which is a polite phrase for a near panic attack with my eyes bugged out. She quickly shut up and Daisy Lee looked at me and said, "Ooooops." I gave that up posthaste. Then since I'm so fair the laser treatments won't work. They're designed for dark hair and if mine isn't light it's gray—face, not head hair, which looks frosted because of so much gray. ;-)

So, lo and behold, I hear about this latest technology called thermicon, which burns the hair. Yessssss, it burns it but it truly doesn't hurt. I only smell like a singed cat for a day or so. Well worth it.

Join me in unwrapping the box.

You knew I'd pick the pink over the black one, right?

Cord and bag to keep it in.

Yes, you must buff the singed hair off.

The super duper blades. They don't call them "Hot Blades" for nothing. Oh, and pictures will follow later. Sigh...

After the self-treatment on my face, I had to go do something in the craft room to forget the experience for a while. ;-) I'll do the legs tomorrow. Can you guess what this is being froufrou-ed up?

Okay, here is the leg right after "shaving" a week earlier. Please remember the age of these legs and also that it is very drying to have them zapped and then using a buffer on them, but I wanted to show you that it takes the hair off wonderfully. And truly there was absolutely no pain in doing it. Just once in a while I'd feel a very quick "burn".

If YOU photographed your legs up this close they probably wouldn't look much better! ;-) So I'm giving it a high rating and recommending it if you want less hair and finer hair at a fraction of the cost of laser treatments.

See what I go through to show you gals so that you won't have to waste money if something doesn't work. :-)


  1. You are, without a doubt, a HOOT !
    and, you're right about a pic of my legs ! ! !
    Thanks for this latest research on our behalf and for the comprehensive report.
    Hugs & ♥♥♥s,

  2. You are very sweet to be the NoNo GuinneaPig for all the rest of us who also have the HairyLipChin Syndrome. I've never tried Electrolly...NoNo Thanks! I might be willing to try your latest...on second thought...sorry...NoNo...I guess I'll stick to the Goddess Venus Shaver...I think I'd rather have RazorBurn! But, YouGoGirl!

  3. You truly are ONE BRAVE LADY!! LOL!!

    Glad to see it works!!

  4. Ouch,does it truly not hurt! If I smell burning hair I run for the shower-lol. Not sure if it would work on me as you can barely see the red hair on my legs.
    Now that pink polka dot material will keep me up for days, wondering what you are making with it. I covered my computer chair with my pink polka dot material and love the new look. Sitting waiting anxiously for the project. Your leg looks like it never had hair on it. Hope they didn't burn you too much. Love and hugs, Pat

  5. It is so fun to go on your make-over adventures with you. You're a brave soul to bare it all for us.

  6. Connie, that's one thing they don't tell you when your young... when you get older you grow hair in strange places! I'll have to check this out, can't wait for your follow up. Kathy

  7. You are so funny and your leg looks great! When I put my "reading glasses" on, I see all kinds of spots and blemished on my legs, that I can't see otherwise. If you can find us a good product for age spots and freckles, let me know!

  8. Ha ha Connie, you crack me up....what you put yourself through for all of us!!!!
    Your leg looks lovely, but then my eyes aren't that great anymore, he he, just kidding....that is amazing.
    I will have to see if I can find one of those babies!

  9. I have seen this on Sephora's website and wondered if it really worked. Thanks for the info girlie!

    I am catching up on my Blog visiting since I am still stuck indoors recovering from this nasty pneumonia. I am FINALLY on the mend!


  10. You make a great reviewer? So, how much is this thing?

  11. I will just sit back and watch you test it out...I think I will pass...all the cords and attachments scared me!

  12. Hi Connie,
    Thanks for the heads up, or legs up in this case. Your research helps us all.
    Liked the pink color though!!!LOL!!

    Big hugs, Celestina Marie

  13. Oh Connie you are a hoot and we appreciate all that you do to keep us hair free and beautiful..;)

  14. You are too funny..... brave, but funny... :0)

  15. Oh Dear Connie,
    You are a "hootin' comic" should be touring around the world with Daisy Lee, her cat and your NoNo machine.
    Thank you so very much for trying these things out.....I WILL BE LAUGHING FOR DAYS
    Hugs and Blessings
    Simply Debbie
    by the way....what type of grapes are you growing on the arbor...with your sense of humor I thought maybe I should be planting your

  16. You are too cute Connie. Thank you for being our test person to let us know about this fine product. It sounds like the perfect gift for us chicks over 50, and I am so glad it comes in hot pink. Have a great week. Kathi

  17. Hi Connie,

    Too funny! Girl, you had me in tears.
    My friends and I salute you for being so brave.

    big hugs,

  18. Hi Connie,
    I've never heard of the NoNo. It's good to know it works and not like the "Ooops" treatment you got from Daisy (so sorry to hear about that!). I can't tell what's getting dolled up there, looks like a printer perhaps?
    About my birdhouse/beach house ~ I've had it about 6 years & got it in town here (the store's long out of business) but I bet you could find one if you Googled it.
    Happy Week! xo~Tracie

  19. Love your test product results ... lEGS? what? my legs look more like a stream of purple rivers ... does it hide them for me, too?

    You are such a kick, Connie.
    Have a beautiful day ~
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  20. Well Connie...i am Italian.

    ciao bella

  21. Thanks for giving us a leg up with your new device. Looks like it beats the pluck and pull method. Thanks for sharing. Stella

  22. HUm, I don't know if I am brave enough to try that. It sounds like it would hurt, hopefully not.

    I saw where you commented on Ceekay's post about adding the "page" under your header with all of your different gadgets there. I have read that a dozen times and I don't get it. Can you do a tutorial? I would love to get some of the stuff off of my sidebar. Thanks. Hugs, Marty

  23. Lady, you're a trip! Thanks for popping into Rehab today. I'll be back to wander your halls.

  24. NoNo!
    I do not want hair on my chin!
    I do not want hair on my legs!
    I do not want hair on my arms!
    Thank you fro telling us about this product!
    the things that get invented these days-genius!
    My husband is allergic to cats--do you think he'd be allergic to me, if I smelled like a singed one?
    (Thanks for the smile! I needed that)!
    XOXOXO, sugar!

  25. Thank you so much for that demonstration. I might have to get that. Had to shave my legs for gd wedding, since I had to wear a dress. Oh the things we do to be beautiful.

  26. Oh absolutely hair-larious!!! Connie you are so funny!!! But am kind of impressed with that NoNO thingy!! Off to google it!!! lol - Not sure I want to smell like burnt cat though!!! Rachaelxo
