Why People Love it
- Doesn't burn or irritate the skin
- Works quickly
- Easy to apply and use
If you have unwanted facial hair and you can't possibly stomach the strong smells of other hair removal creams, this is the product you need to try. It comes with its own bonus lotion which should be applied to the area immediately after rinsing the cream from your face. This helps skin to cope with the sincerely powerful ingredients you've just applied. We're also big fans of the extracts which prevent hair growth. You don't get massive quantities of them, but enough that you may notice slowed growth. That's always nice, isn't it?
Ingredients: You'll find a combination of Calcium Thioglycolate and Potassium Hydroxide. Okay, that's not all you'll find, but those are the powerful ingredients inside. Interestingly, you'll also find Willow Herb and Pumpkin Seed extracts; those are known to prevent hair regrowth which means you'll need to use this product less frequently than others.
How to use it: Users need to apply this cream with their fingers in a thick layer without working it in the skin. After three minutes, check to see whether hair comes off quickly. It's so powerful, though, that you don't want to give it more than five minutes. A timer will save you from immense pain. Then apply the enclosed lotion; it's designed to strengthen your skin and reduce irritation.
Who can use it? This is designed for women and men may not enjoy using it.
Where can you use it? Apply this hair removal cream to your upper lip and jawline. You could test in other areas, but other products are likely to be more effective off the face.
Scent: Of all the hair removal creams you will find for any part of the body, this one has to smell the best. We're not saying it smells like perfume, but the vanilla fragrance is nowhere near as medicinally strong as other products.
Will it break the bank? The MSRP is close to $10 for a pack which includes two ounces of hair removal cream and the bonus lotion. But, you'll probably pay something closer to $5 for the pack. That's $2.50 per ounce... not including the lotion. Score.
This is a new facial hair removal formula from Sally Hansen; it has a much nicer, cleaner smelling scent to it. You'll also notice that it's pumped full of Vitamin E to soothe your skin.
Most reviewers don't experience an issue with irritation, but you may find it happens if you leave this product on for longer than five minutes.
