It works…but PLEASE use as directed…
By David Holbrook
Ok, so I got this product in an attempt to get rid of massive loads of hair painlessly. This is my opinion based on my experience with it:
First impression, yes it works (very well, actually), but you must use a good amount in each area you want to remove hair. I tried a thin layer first, and got hardly anything off. In the end, I used about a whole bottle for one complete hair removal.
Another thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of people complain about the smell. Honestly, it’s not that bad. If you’ve ever been in a hair salon, you’ve already experienced it, and while it’s strong at first, you get used to it in under a minute (don’t recommend having your mouth open though…)
After you’ve placed the stuff on, you’re going to be waiting a while to get it off, so bring something to entertain yourself. Staring at the ceiling for 8-15 minutes is not an enjoyable practice for me. At the same time, however, PLEASE bring a timer in with you. Set it for 8 minutes, and try to wipe a small amount with a damp rag after it dings. If nothing comes off (or little does), try again after 9 minutes, 10 minutes, 11 minutes, etc. Point is DO NOT LEAVE IT ON PAST 15 MINUTES!!! If you do, YOU WILL GET CUT AND/OR BURNED!! (especially if you have placed it on rather sensitive areas). If you do leave it on though, and get hurt, don’t worry, it only lasts for the rest of that day tops (it’s a good idea to do this when you don’t have anywhere to go), and while I’m on this subject, DO NOT place any kind of cream or anything to remove the burning sensation!!!! I did (stupidly) and it was like throwing a bunch of brush soaked in oil on the fire. I literally could not move for a good minute because it hurt so badly…
Something else I must stress is that you test it in a small area and wait at least a week before you go ahead and start going for the whole removal. I didn’t do this, and while I was fine at first, 5-6 days later I got some really bad acne in the areas I applied this stuff. I bathe regularly, sometimes twice a day, and it only occurred in the areas I placed this stuff. Now this may just be some freakish reaction that only I will have to this stuff, but I do recommend testing it to see how it will affect you before you place it all over your body (don’t be stupid like me).
One final remark is that it DOES NOT last 2 weeks. After 2-3 days I could noticeably see hair growing back in all the areas I had removed it from. Again, this may just be me, and maybe after multiple sessions it does get to this point, but based on my first experience I definitely think that the two week lapse that is advertised is a lie.
Hope this helps!

Works great for me!
This must be one of those items that works great for some people and horribly for others. I purchased this a little bit hesitently after reading the negative reviews, but eventually decided it was worth a shot.
I wanted to use this to get rid of the hair on my back. So I smeared it all over with some contortions and set a timer for 15 minutes. The smell at first wasn’t bad at all, but it quickly turned into a nasty, chemical smell that reminded me of the perms my mom and sister did once. It wans’t horribly overpowering though, just irritating.
After the 15 minutes were up I used a washcloth and wiped all the hair off. It seemed to work best if you were slow and methodical in this step. I also found myself rinsing the washcloth often to get the hair off. Then I jumped in the shower and rinsed and washed with soap.
In the end I ended up with a perfectly smooth, hairless back and zero irritation. So far its been a week and there is no stubble, so I’m happy with the results.

May not be for everyone but it worked for my son
By Clearing the Forest
When my 18 year old son came home from college for Spring Break, he had a mission. He wanted to transform from “Big Foot’s” cousin to “a dolphin with eyebrows”. In other words, he wanted to get rid of some of his body hair. Now, I didn’t think it looked too bad but since he was determined to get it taken care of I figured I should at least guide the efforts. The first stop was the local salon for a chest wax. It worked great but according to him it was very painful and he broke out in a rash that night. Benadryl cream helped but it took a few days to go away. His dermatologist’s office recommended a product like Nair so the next time I was at the Pharmacy I picked some up. He carefully read the instructions and tried some on a small area on his ankle. That seemed to work well so he did the rest of his legs today and it worked fine. I have no doubt that it may “burn” some people but for whatever reason my son’s skin did not react negatively to it. So if you’re thinking about using this product DO A TEST AREA FIRST! That’s the only way to make sure you won’t react negatively to the product. The smell is no more offensive than shaving cream so just imagine 5 guys shaving at once and that’s about how it smells. Get lots of towels – preferably towels that mom doesn’t mind ruining a bit and follow the instructions. Good luck.
