Why Crystal Hair Eraser Is Not For Everyone?

Many cultures around the world have deemed female body hair as both unsightly and impure. It then comes at no surprise that the practice of hair removal has been linked to cleanliness and beauty.

In order to comply with the local hygienic and aesthetic standards, women have desperately tried to find (and even invent) techniques that simplify this painful and messy process.

Waxing, sugaring, shaving, trimmers, tweezers, IPL, lasers, etc., are some of the options available in the market. Regrettably, there is no perfect way to remove hair as all of them have their own pros and cons.

Having said that, minimizing pain, irritation and fussy application are the main factors that women take into consideration when purchasing a hair removal system/device. And no one can deny that a low cost would represent an added benefit.

The Crystal Hair Eraser seems to meet all the aforementioned requirements. Could it be too good to be true?

This handheld tool employs a bed of nano-crystals that, when rubbed against the skin (10-15 circles per area), will clump the hair and break it up at the surface of the skin. In other words, the Crystal Hair Eraser is basically a depilator and won’t remove the hair from the root. All of this translates into short-term results and more frequent application. It´s abrasive nature, though, does provide an exfoliating effect that leaves the skin silky smooth.

Regardless of the sloughing benefit, it would be a huge mistake to claim the Crystal Hair Eraser is suitable for everyone. While it is indeed painless, fast and easy to use, it comes with its own set of drawbacks. Because it turns to dermoabrasion to remove unwanted hair, it can potentially cause or exacerbate abnormal dryness (xerosis), sensitivity, irritation, and redness. If you suffer any of these conditions, or have been diagnosed with an inflammatory skin disease, then this device would be completely contraindicated.

It is a well-known fact that repeated mechanical rubbing in those cases can and do*:

– Strip the skin of its natural oils.
– Create micro scratches.
– Harm the cutaneous microbiome.

Furthermore, it is not recommended to use it on thin areas like the face, private areas and underarms. All in all, the Crystal Hair Eraser is a great alternative for those who are looking for a simple, affordable and effective hair method. Just keep in mind that delicate and inflamed parts are to be avoided, and the results are short-lived when compared with IPL Device or even waxing.

* To minimize this, use after a bath or shower. Apply circular motions and do not press too hard on the skin. Use it maximum once per week on hair longer than 2 mm. Moisturize well afterwards.


  • Do not use the eraser on delicate areas like the face, underarms and bikini line. 
  • Avoid overusing it or rubbing too hard.
  • The Crystal Hair Eraser is contraindicated for those with abnormally dry skin or skin with signs of infection or inflammation (redness, itchiness, flakiness, etc.).

Always moisturize well afterwards to replenish the lost oils and avoid damaging the skin barrier. 

*Contraindicated for abnormally dry skin (xerosis)
