Does it Work: DepilSilk

(KFVS) -

Tired of shaving, the nicks? The cuts? It promises to get rid of unwanted hair with a simple spray.  No pain and a much-better scent than similar products. It's Depilsilk.

Best friends Taryn and Austin to test it out together.

"Don't rub it in but evenly spread."

It claims to work in less than eight minutes, and it is painless.

"Smooth!" said Taryn. 

Smooth yes, but a closer look it seems we still had a hairy situation.

"Ooh, you can pull it out. It's supposed to wipe out easily, and this is pulling your hair out!" said Austin.

We also asked coworker Justin West to try it, just because he's got more visible hair. After all, the product said it can work for men.

However, Justin's not a fan.

"That's nasty looking!"

We don't know what was worse: taking off Justin's leg hair or watching Justin take off his leg hair!

"Ew, this looks gross!"

It appears the DepilSilk works, but the question now: is it worth the trouble?

"It was just 'so-so', I just don't see spending a little bit more money for this product as opposed to just going for a wax or shaving. I just don't see a lot of a difference. I think Nair is a lot cheaper than this product, so," said Austin.

It is, and it's $15 for the bottle! So, it's not a silky smooth finish for DepilSilk. It earns a 'D' on this Does it Work test.
