Why people love it
  • Works effectively on coarse, dark hair
  • No skin reactions or irritations
  • Quick and easy to use

The folks at Avon have long been committed to making women look their best without spending a fortune of time or money. They've done it again with this hair removal cream; it works in as little as two and a half minutes!


The manufacturer says not to use this on your face. While some reviewers have tried it, the strong smell may put you off the idea. 


When you thought you had hours more until leaving the house and left all your grooming to the last minute, this is the sort of product you want to have on hand. You may find the hairs from your legs and arms disappearing in as little as two minutes. Yes, that means it's STRONG - so be careful. Luckily, the folks at Avon have pumped every bottle full of soothing ingredients to keep your skin happy. We're also smitten with the price; if only it would handle the hair on your face as well. If it did everything, this would be our top pick. 

Ingredients: Inside of every container you'll find a wealth of moisturizing ingredients. That includes Shea Butter, Meadowfoam Oil, and more. That's in addition to the Cherry Blossom used for fragrance and, of course, the Potassium Thioglycolate as the active ingredient. 

How to use it: Apply to clean, dry skin and work towards an even layer. After two and a half minutes, it's time for a test. Hairs should wipe off easily; if they don't then you can leave it as long as eight minutes. But, the manufacturer places a LOT of emphasis on removing this product from your skin within eight minutes. We wouldn't test that. 

Who can use it? This particular cream is designed for women to use. Men could get away with this but probably should look elsewhere... unless they have seriously dry skin. 

Where can you use it? Women are advised not to use this on their face; it's too strong for the skin in this area. And, if you really want to try it along the bikini line, you will need to take the patch test exceptionally seriously. 

Scent: There's that light Cherry Blossom smell, but mostly this hair removal cream smells like the chemicals found inside. Fortunately, that disappears quickly. 

Will it break the bank? You'll pay a little more than $12 for a two-pack of this Avon product. Considering that each tube contains over four ounces of hair removal cream, that's a little less than $1.50 per fluid ounce. Not bad at all. Frankly, that's quite a good price.
