You may love the feeling of silky smooth legs, but let's be honest: it's a total chore to get them that way. Shaving is the easiest and cheapest option, but it's also likely caused plenty of annoying Band-Aid situations over the years. Waxing isn't exactly less painful, and if you have ridiculously sensitive skin like I do, you're probably not too keen on Nair or other hair-removal products. As everyone infomercial everywhere would ask, "Could there be a better way?" The answer now is yes - someone just invented a bladeless razor and it could change how you get your gams smooth forever.
This beautiful new invention comes from the minds over at Skarp, a company dedicated to giving its users the closest, smoothest shave possible. The Skarp razor doesn't have a blade: instead, the razor has a tiny laser light that zaps your hair away, leaving zero razor burn or irritation. Your skin will thank you, and so will the environment, as one of the goals of Skarp is to reduce waste from the millions of razors thrown away each year. Their video makes me want to grab a Skarp razor like, yesterday.
Unfortunately, you can't buy a Skarp razor - at least, not yet. While the razor does exist, the company is still raising money so they can produce razors to be sold to the public. But the good news? It might happen sooner than you think: the company launched their Kickstarter campaign just over a week ago and has raised $2.8 million dollars. The company's goal was a mere $160 thousand, which just proves how desperate people are for a better way to shave.
The price tag for the Skarp razor will be roughly $189, but if it means never having to purchase a traditional razor again (or deal with icky razor burn) consider me sold.
