This is awesome especially for women of light/medium skin with very dark facial hair (Indian, Mediterranean etc). It lightens the hair, not the skin and left the face with a clean bright look. Comes in a sensitive version as well (which I use). Just DONT use it before a party or an outing. Use it the night before because you should'nt go out in the sun after and also there may be some slight redness that goes away.
Pretty cheap, easy enough to mix. I chose to use this on my arms after some discussion at work - don't ask.
Anyway, it smells like the same peroxide I've on my hair years ago because, basically that's exactly what it is and I never had any issues with that.
It has lightened the hair of my arms somewhat but it has lightened the SKIN on my arms horribly. My skin also looks like I have mild prickly heat. Thank god I didn't use this on my face! Hopefully the affect will fade in a few days and I can use make up or fake tan to cover this up.
I will update in a day or two to let you know how things go.
Hello. I also use this product and its great for me but I would like to know how many days does the result last!
Burned quite a lot when I used it but it's the only one I can find in my area :(
Edit: When I used it a second time, it didn't burn at all so I'm giving it one more lippie~
3 Lippies b/c it's the first and only bleach I've used, but it works really well! The first time I saw Carmindy, the make-up artist on "What Not to Wear" bleach eyebrows I thought, " I have to try that" My medium/dark brows were not working with my blonde highlighted hair. Every eyebrow pencil, powder and gel made them even darker and I always used blonde or taupe.
So about a year or so later I got the nerve to try it. Jolen was a name I was used to seeing around my Italian side of the family. I remember being a kid and visiting and seeing my Zia with a white moustache getting ready for a night out!
You get a little spatula and a speck of a plastic mixing tray. I use a small plastic cup instead, 1/4 powder developer with 1/2 cream. I measure with spoons I use for hair color as well. This amount gives a good thick coating for my brows so no hair is left behind. I take off the cream with the spatula quickly and rinse with tepid water then wash with my facial cleanser. I have not had any burning or irritation from this product.
Timing is key! The first time I used it I left it on for one minute. Didn't do a thing. Waited a week or so did a re-do with a 3 minute time my brows were now a dark blonde shade. I have since left it on for 5 minutes and got a light blonde which was too light.
Now my eyebrow products work well and I don't have contrast with my hair. Why did I wait so long to try this?
This is the answer to a dark haired girls prayers!..I used this on my upper lip for years until I finally started to wax it, but now I use it on my forearms and it works amazingly, although you do have to do it once every 2 weeks or so, the results far outweigh the hassle. It has really given me more confidence as I was always really self conscious about my arms. Waxing and shaving never really worked for me, as when it started to grow back it made me more self conscious, but this stuff is perfect, I am always going to have hairy arms, but once it is lightened it really doesn't bother me as much, and is not as noticeable.
I have dark hair around my neck and on the sides of my jaw, and this lightens it fantastically. Mixing is a bit fiddly but it's doable.
The smell doesn't bother me (years of dying my hair have hardened my nostrils) and the tingling is fine - just remember to take it off if it starts to sting.
I use this use to lighten my eyebrows for years. great product!!
I'm thirteen and I always remember my mom bleaching her upper lip when I was little and I always wanted to do it too. These past few years I've been getting more and more insecure about the hairs on my upper lip. Tonight, I just went for it, and I am sooooo pleased!! Jolen worked extremely well. I just want to remind people that if Jolen starts stinging, take it off immediately! A little tingle is okay, though :D one more thing... THANK YOU JOLEN!! <3
I literally just used it so I will tell you how it works. You rub this creme lotion stuff wherever u dont want hair. My arms r like bigfoots so ya. The stuff smells like crap but live with it. In 24 hrs i will be back with the results!!!
