Doesn't do as advertised
This product doesn't remove the hair at the root as it says it should do in the advertisement. It just sands it off and I can still see the hair inside the skin. It takes way too long to do. I would rather use a razor as it is much quicker. Disappointed in this product. Also, I bought it from Lina Silk and when the product arrived it was called Nina Silk.
Does not do as advertised
The pad doesn't remove hair from the root as advertised, it just breaks it off so it then grows back as stubble. It also takes ages. I wouldn't recommend. I contacted to ask for a refund, it's false advertising, the company are not communicative. Do yourself a favour and don't buy.
Just doesn’t work!
I was so looking forward to receiving this product. However I am now very disappointed in it. Not only does it not work but after ages of circular movements in one area my skin is sore and still full of hairs!. I’m more angry in myself for believing the hype and buying it. What a waste of money,time and skin!!!.
I was so excited to receive this and waited around a month for it to be delivered to be sorely disappointed. I have fine hairs on my legs and after a long time of using this as instructed my legs still have lots of hairs! It should be advertised as an exfoliator not a hair removal device. Do not waste your money. I believed it would work based on all of the positive comments but these must be a marketing ploy as I can't see anyone being happy with how this works or more to the point doesn't.

Product does not work and has no instructions
The box has no instructions so I had to find tutorials and tips online, I tried them all, but this product just does not work. Not even the slightest. I tried on stubble and long hair alike, I tried different movements and different parts of my body and I tried using it for anywhere between two and twenty minutes, and nothing happened. Unless I am using this completely wrong (which again, no instructions) then this product is just an outright scam. It does nothing. Don't waste your money.
Nina Silk Hair
ths is the best way to get rid of hair! equal in closenessas a razor.. with the addd bnus that youj don't have to dry yourself tose the parts you miss. works even better aroound the knees than arazor, that alwas causes a bit of blood shed. the only thing i regret is my hesitation in making th decision tobuy this product sooner.
Fast and easy. Leaves skin soft.
I shaved my legs a few days ago but as I am due for a spray tan I thought I would give them another quick shave as I had stubble. Thankfully Nina arrived and I read the instructions thoroughly, I then tried it in my lower legs with brilliant results that also left my legs feeling soft and smooth.
I will be recommending this product to my daughters!
I loved using this for the first time. Great quality, gotta make sure its not a real hot day/night wen u do it as the moisture doesnt help. Very satisfied by how close down to the skin in goes, i like the little razor type things their great to do ur feet or if u find u missed a spot. Also great to do eyebrows if u know wat ur doing. Thanks
Love my Nina so much
I have been using the Nina for a while now and I find that after using it for sometime the hair does seem to grow back a lot softer. I now use everyday and it does a great job. Plus I can carry it with me every where without having to worry about using a razor. Can use it anywhere. I love it !
I find the Nina Silk does the job well if used every day. It doubles as an exfoliator too. The closeness of the cut is much better than a razor.
November 8th 2018 Update: Silky Nina Silk!
The Nina Silk hair removal works for me as I use a depilatory cream on day 1 to get a super smooth surface and then daily thereafter I use the Nina Silk.
The important thing is to thoroughly remove all hair before using it. This is the key to its success!
Dishonest advertising, ineffective product, it really is a scam.
Nina Silk micros accessories felt like a dry razor on my face, sometimes getting caught on hairs and ripping them out painfully. left a bumpy red rash and stubble. There was no description of the micro accessories on the packaging explaining it is essentially a razor and shaves. It is not a desirable result as I am conscious of hair regrowth on my face and had never shaved my eyebrow and facial hair before, now I have to deal with painful ingrown hairs, rough stubble, inflamed skin and possibly thicker/ more hair regrowth on my face.
-Nina...silk itself was useless removing hair for me. I eventually gave up using it on my leg and instead shaved with a razor. I left some stubble behind, and tried using Nina Silk again on the stubble. It didn't smooth the stubble. For that reason I say this is a useless product and falsely claims to do what it isn't capable of doing (remove hair) in a way it isn't capable of doing it (smooth, quick, painless, better than shaving and waxing).
