Beauty fans are raving about hair removal ‘crystals’ that claim to use ‘nanotechnology’ to leave you lint-free – but other buyers are NOT convinced and warn they’re ‘not worth the money’.
- Hair removal crystals claim to remove hair by causing “clumps” to fall off the body
- Fans claim they avoid the redness, bumps and ingrown hairs caused by shaving
- However, others claim they cause “burns” and say they’re not worth the money
A new hair removal device claims to be the answer to your shaving woes — but not all buyers are convinced.
Hair removal crystals, also known as “hair removal erasers” or “hair removal stones,” are small, hand-held pads that use something called “nano-crystal technology” to clump hair and then detach from the surface.
By rubbing the pad across the skin’s surface, the pad is said to provide a closer shave and prevent redness, bumps and ingrown hairs.
Hair removal crystals, which cost an average of £20, have become a hit on TikTok, with customers sharing rave reviews of the incredible results.
But not everyone is convinced. Other buyers turned to Amazon to complain that the products weren’t working.

A YouTuber compares the traditional razor to a 20-pound hair removal crystal, saying the crystal is “easier” and “takes less time,” even on thick hair
Bleame, the company that first designed the item, claims that the nanocrystal technology “gently removes” unwanted hair from the body, leaving skin feeling silky smooth. Now some other imitators are taking advantage of the trend.
A video claims to show a crystal hair removal product that works in just 10 minutes, reveals painless application and leaves smooth legs.
Hundreds of customers have bought similar products and taken to Amazon to share their excitement.
One delighted shopper wrote: “I am really impressed with this product. I risked it being too good to be true, but it does exactly what it says on the tin. I am so happy with the results.”

Another wrote: “Amazing product. It takes a little time to do. You have to go over the same area a few times, but it’s worth it. My skin feels so soft. Softer than any other razor. Even the next day without lotion.”
A third added: “This is brilliant. So easy to use and leaves skin soft. I don’t know how long it will be yet, but it’s perfect.”
Others, however, were less convinced, saying the results weren’t nearly as good as advertised. The reviews are from a company product copying Bleame’s.
One customer shared in a one star review, “I followed the directions exactly and 3 days later my legs are still sore and very very dry which they weren’t before.
“I may have had a lot of used sandpaper on my legs and didn’t even remove the hair, there was plenty left. Shouldn’t be allowed to sell that!’

Another agreed: “I worked for about five minutes, went through half a leg and then stopped working, it rinsed off, it dried, nothing so I had to go back to my razor, seriously, don’t bother.” .”
A third warned: “Yes I followed the hype and bought this and it’s a total waste of money. It doesn’t get the hair off as well as it looks. It also tore my forearms badly. Don’t mind my advice, it’s not worth the money.’
Another review read: “I bought this product after seeing it all over social media touted as the best new hair removal method that claims to be painless and removes hair quickly and efficiently.
“The reality of this device is not like that at all. First I would like to say that the first area I tested this device on was my legs and it seemed to work well there, painlessly removing hair and leaving my legs smooth and soft.
“When I tested the device on other parts of my body, I was very disappointed. On every other area of my body I tried this device on, despite using a moisturizer (which only seemed to make it worse) it left the skin very red, irritated and inflamed after use.
“Although the device irritated my skin, it didn’t even properly remove hair in the areas I tested it on. Although it worked on my legs, this still lasted much longer than just using a razor and shaving and for that reason I would not recommend this device!’
