About Glame Hair Removal

Glame which is sold on is touted as the best hair remover that leaves your skin smooth not bumpy. It’s said to use epilation and sensa-light technology leaving your body so smooth to touch, no ingrown hairs, bumps or skin irritation.

It allegedly works by by first plucking hairs with the epilation component, and then targeting the follicles with energy to reduce hair growth. However, the question that begs to be answered is this; does it really work as claimed or is it a scam?

I Tried The Glame Hair Remover Device – Here’s my Experience

So after seeing a couple of not so good Glame reviews on Reddit, I decided to give it a try to see if it’s as bad as reviewed or if it holds some hope. My order took nearly a month to arrive, it came all the way from China though the packaging says ‘Made in California’ (First Red Flag).

Being of Native American descent, my hair is pretty much coarse, and I’m yet to use a hair removal device that perfectly removes my hair without causing bumps and skin irritation. It was no different with Glame Smoothbeam. It couldn’t remove any hair, and got stuck many times.

What’s so interesting is the Glame looks very much like Bleame Hair Remover Handset that I bought and tested nearly a year ago. Same low quality, poor blades that don’t really tackle the hair. When I contacted support@shopglame, the co-founder emailed me under the alias Riley.

I have screen shots of the 90 day risk free refund policy, the emails back and forth, etc. I could only upload one item so it’s a picture of how the product arrived. Yet, my refund request wasn’t granted.
