Final Comments:
I’ve always on the lookout for products that will save me time and money, so when I saw this product I was interested to give it a try. I figured it might be a good alternative to waxing, threading, etc.

I was a bit surprised that about the need for "guarding balm", because it made me wonder how harsh the hair removal cream was since I’ve used hair removal creams before for my legs and don’t remember having to use a pre-product. But I suppose this is a good thing as the skin on our faces is probably more sensitive than the skin on our legs.

I am pretty impressed with this product. I have normal hair I think (not thick or dark) and was pretty careful to follow the instructions. In the end I found it to be effective, easy to use and absolutely no mess. It removed my hair and left my skin feeling super smooth. The complete process takes 6-8 minutes.

And although it is a bit pricier, it does last quite long because only a tiny bit of product is required during each use.

How does it smell??? I've used Nair's product like this and it leaves a nasty burnt like smell that I HATE!

It does have a bit of the scent (chemical/burnt) that other chemical hair removers have, but definitely not as strong as others i've tried in the past.
