CLEANING THE CRYSTAL HAIR ERASER

Rinse your Bleame™ Crystal Hair Eraser under water to remove dust and debris. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive scrubbers when cleaning your device. Instead, use a soft cloth or sponge to gently clean your Bleame™ Crystal Hair Eraser.

PATCH TESTING

  • Identify one small area on each leg for testing. It's best to test on your legs as they're scientifically less sensitive than your arms.
  • Cleanse the test areas with a gentle cleanser and tenderly pat them dry.
  • Test different methods to find your preferred technique:
  1. Dry SkinEnsure your skin is completely dry, devoid of oils or lotions.
  2. Damp Skin - Maintain your skin slightly damp, but not excessively wet, and also free from oils or lotions.
  • Gently rub your Bleame™ Crystal Hair Eraser on each test area with light pressure and circular motions. 
  • Take breaks between passes, use lighter pressure, or opt for shorter strokes to minimize friction and heat generation. Compared to dry skin application, friction heat is less noticeable using the damp skin method. If you feel a slight warm sensation, rest assured that it's generally considered normal.
  • Move your Bleame™ Crystal Hair Eraser in the direction of hair growth to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs, skin sensitivity, friction, and irritation. 
  • Adjust your technique as needed for gentle and effective hair removal.
  • While both the dry and damp skin application techniques are tried and tested methods for effective and comfortable results, we understand that everyone's experience may differ. 

  • If you feel that neither method fully meets your expectations in terms of effectiveness, comfort, or both, we recommend considering two additional steps. These steps provide additional options for you to customize and tailor the process according to your needs and preferences. 

    • ADD A PROTECTIVE MOISTURE BARRIER: For those with sensitive skin, consider applying a thin layer of a gentle, hypoallergenic moisturizer or barrier cream and allow it to fully absorb before using our Bleame™ Crystal Hair Eraser. 
      This optional step creates a moisture barrier that helps minimize potential irritation and enhances your overall comfort during the hair removal process. Look for products that are free of potential irritants like fragrances, dyes, or alcohol to ensure maximum compatibility with your skin.
    • OPTIMIZE YOUR COMFORT: If you feel the need for additional comfort while using our Bleame™ Crystal Hair Eraser, you can experiment with applying a thin and even layer of hypoallergenic shaving gel or cream once your skin has fully recovered and appears normal. This optional step provides a protective barrier that optimizes your comfort during the process.  
  • Take note of the comfort level for each method during use.
  • Monitor the areas for 24 hours, and refrain from applying any other products.


DETERMINING SUITABILITY

If no intense redness, irritation, itching, or discomfort manifests during or after the test, it indicates your Bleame™ Crystal Hair Eraser is suitable for your skin!

Proceed with the method that felt most comfortable during the patch test.


FINAL INSTRUCTIONS

  • Cleanse with a gentle, hydrating cleanser to remove impurities without drying out your skin.
  • Use the method that worked best during your patch test. For dry skin, make sure it's completely dry and has no oil or lotion. For damp skin, keep it slightly damp, not too wet, and has no leftover products.
  • Start with light pressure and gently rub your Crystal Hair Eraser in circles one small area at a time and gradually increase pressure if needed.
  • Adjust as you go by using lighter pressure, shorter strokes, different angles, and moving in the direction of your hair growth to prevent ingrown hair. Adapt your technique to find what works best for you.
  • Rinse the treated area with cool water and pat dry with a soft towel.
  • Apply a fragrance-free, hypoallergenic lotion or moisturizer. Reapply regularly to prevent dryness. We also recommend soothing with a cold compress for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Rinse your Crystal Hair Eraser under running water to remove hair and dead skin. Then, store it in a dry place, away from direct sunlight, to maintain its quality and effectiveness.
