Ok...this is an embarrassment But I have to have this product. I find the conditioner that comes with the kit is just a waste of money and product. I would like to see bigger tubes Of bleach and activator and skip the conditioner.
Its like I have to do this every 2 days. It drives me crazy.
When sallys all you have then u gotta use it. Would love better options.

I am using this product as the type this review!I don't know how many times I've repurchased this, but I always come back to it. I am Caucasian, but I have dark hair, naturally thick brows, and stubborn facial hair. I need something that I can easily use to lighten my unwanted hair, but doesn't require a visit to a salon or touch-ups every week or so. This stuff has been the answer to my prayers. It comes in two phases- one cream bleach, and one powder activator. Mixing it together is tricky; using too much activator can burn the skin, but using too little will make the mixture ineffective. A proper 2/1 ratio of cream to activator does the trick. I use it above my upper lip, and in just minutes, the hair is practically invisible. There is a slight, tingling sensation(which I like), and a sweet, almond scent. First applications may cause irritation, but don't worry!Just use the product in batches a few days apart until you get the desired effect. Overall, this an excellent product, although the formula has changed a little over the years. (It used to be a bit better.) I've tried competing products like Jolen, but none have compared to this. I do recommend the original strength over the extra strength one, as it seems to be more effective. The only problem I have this is the packaging. I wish the cream came in a squeeze tube, and the activator in something that sealed more tightly. (The jars they come in now seem to not only waste product, but also to spoil it more quickly.)

I've been bleaching my upper lip for years with this. 10 minutes and I'm done. Sensitive skin and no acne or major red skin caused. Love this product so much. My other peach fuzz is light. This makes above my lip fuzz match that. Yay!

I have been buying this product non-stop since I was 13 and I'm now 35. Can't live without it.

I was looking for Jolen bleach and the store I was at was out of it. I thought I'd give this Sally Hansen bleach a try.

I'm white with dark brunette hair. I use this on my upper lip and on my jaw line. The jaw line hair is PCOS related and fairly coarse.

This does not work well for me at all. The preparation and application is the same as the Jolen, it just does not lighten hair as well. It might be okay for finer hair or hair that is lighter than mine, but a 10 minute application did zilch.

Pros: Less stinky than Jolen and also less irritating to my skin.

Cons: Not very effective for its intended job.

I lighten my eyebrows from med/dark brown to dark blonde and have been using Jolen bleach.
I thought I'de give this a try and I found that while the application is identical, (be sure to measure or you can burn your skin) I do have to leave SH on my brows longer, though I didn't have any redness or stinging. I'll most likely go back to the Jolen for the time issue.

I am half white and half Guatemalan (Hispanic) and this product is a LIFE-SAVER. I swear, swear, swear bye it. I have very fair, yellow-toned skin with medium-dark brown hair. I've always had some peach fuzz, maybe more than the average girl, but since my hair is naturally dark, it shows up a trillion times worse on my upper lip. (I never was that hairy anywhere else, I didn't even have a unibrow.) Well, in middle school, my twin sister and I always got made fun of for having mustaches. Honestly, they made fun of her worse, but I still think mine was worse. Well this product bleaches great. We got out first box in 6 or 7th grade to share and since then its been wonderful. I've gone through about 10 or 11 boxes, and his product lasts a very long time. I can get about 6 uses out of a package, sharing with my sister every time. The results last strong for about 3 weeks, and begin to fade. I leave on for about 10-15 minutes. I almost always get white bumps on my upper lip after using, but they go away very fast (like 10 minutes at most). It will sting a little, but keep it on and it'll be worth it. I would definitely recommend buying. Totally worth it. And now it comes with pre-conditioner. I loveee.

Im on my 3rd box of this stuff because it is a life saver. I always get teased about the dark hair on my arms so i wanted them to be less noticible. This stuff really helps because you can barley see the hair after i bleach it. It does sting a little but its not bad for havjng such sensitive skin. So if yoihabe tough skin it shouldnt be a problem. It does smell pretty good for hair bleach and my arms actually feel pretty soft after using it. It lasts for 2 weeks or so. I cant really say that it should last longer because it doesnt fade its just that the dark hair is growing back naturally. So no complaints there. Definitely recommend this if you have any dark hair that makes you upset haha

I've been using this since my high school days because as a child i always got teased about my "hairy arms". This stuff really does the trick! It lightens my arm hairs to being completely blond and wayy less noticeable. This has been my HG product ever since! I would die without it. Until I can afford lasik hair removal, I will keep using this!

Also make sure you rinse off with very cold water instead of warm! Since it alleviates the itchy/burning sensation :)


Pros:
*Actually works
*Nice almond scent after rinsed off

Cons:
*Stings/itches like crazy usually! (but beauty is pain!)
*Sometimes the beginning of hair shaft is left brown/some hairs stay brown since the product seems to separate on the skin! (better than nothing tho!)
* Results usually last 2 weeks tops on me, until i need to re-bleach! Wish it lasted way longer :(
