I am reviewing Nair Shower Power Sensitive Formula. It has a pump dispenser rather than being in a tube. I have now used it on my arms, stomach area and upper lip. I am naturally blonde but have very fine, light but still noticeable hair on those areas.
I have tried other hair removal creams such as Veet, and I have tried Nair Pretty and the Nair Brazilian Spa Clay hair remover. They were all pretty terrible. I did not have any problems with this particular type. It did not burn and the hair came off easily.

This is the worst product ever!!!! It gave me a terrible painful rash on my legs. Never using this again.

I have been a consumer of hair removers for years because i hate shaving and i always end up with horrible razor burn/nicks on my legs no matter how careful I am. I decided to give shower power hair remover a try after seeing it in a commercial. When I first put it on it burned my legs so bad that i had to spray water all over and scrub it off. The second time i tried it the pain subsided and it felt some what hot on my leg. It did remove some hair but absolutely not all. I will not purchase again and i guess i'm back to using my razor routine.

Like many of you I had a very bad skin reaction. I actually wrote to the manufacturers and they told me I should have done a skin test first but did compensate me with a small cheque. My legs were raw and rashy and very uncomfortable and the effects kicked in only 10 minutes into using it.
I think it is a badly formulated product, given the number of reviewers who had bad reactions.
I have used depilatory creams in the past and not had this experience.

I have tried a few Nair products, and I found this one, thinking that maybe I'd have a better reaction with it than others. The first time I used it, I thought it was great. The hair came off nicely and it didn't irritate my skin. I believed I would never have to shave again. Then... I used it again. It didn't irritate too bad initially, but in the days after, I got a rash on my legs and they itched like crazy. There were little red bumps all down my legs - gross! I thought maybe it was just a heat rash or something, because it was 100 degrees outside at that time. That rash started to go away, and when I used it again, I got another rash. I decided it was time to dump the nasty stuff. It got MOST of the hair off, but it was so bad. I also tried to use Nair on my underarms, and they got irritated so bad I couldn't even put deodorant on. Shaving is much easier, quicker, and less painful to do. Not only that, but Nair stinks badly, and it takes me almost half an hour to try to put it on. I use 3/4 of a bottle just trying to cover my legs. All in all, I do NOT recommend this to anyone. Stick with shaving!

Wouldn't buy this again unless I was put in a institution and not allowed to have razors. Even then, I'd be pretty iffy about it. This didn't burn or make my skin peel or make me bleed like some others did. It just wasn't effective. It left stubble in most places but some were smooth. The smell of the lavender was a true headache for me. I liked the bottle (I had the pump kind) but the closure over the spout broke off so lippie was deducted. Granted, I've never tried any hair removal products before or after this with the exception of razors so I don't have much to compare to. Everything works differently for everyone, I just personally wouldn't repurchase

This didn't work for me at all. I followed the instructions, but not only did not remove the hair, it stung like crazy. I've had much better luck with regular Nair products. I would never dream of trying this again, even if someone provided me with a lifelong supply!

It was my first time getting rid of the hairs on my legs and I saw this at the pharmacy and decided to try it. It cost me $1200 JMD (that's like $13AMD) so yes the price was a bit steep.
But the good news is that it WORKED!! I applied it with the sponge that was provided and I left it on for the full 10mins before I stepped in the shower. The hairs just washed off!! that was yesterday. Today I am still silky smooth and I am loving it:)

Perhaps they reformulated this product...it came in the pump form and had a sponge to apply and remove the product. I put it on my bikini area (coarse hair!) for 5 mins...after 5 mins jumped in the shower and used the sponge to lightly rub it off. All the hair came off easily and I am now ridiculously smooth without the nasty red bumps and razor burn that I usually get. I can't shave this close! Very happy with the product.
**Update...2 days later I still got a little bit of the redness and a few bumps.

This product sucked! I thought it woudl be awesome, and I have coarse hair, but when I tried it on my under arms.... it removed nothing! I even waited longer some times, and washed hard since it didn't come out easily... and still nothign came out, along with the fact it smelled like cow manure! ew. The price was ok... but totally not worth it... Please don't buy!

According to the instructions, you should keep it on at least one minute before showering. Well, I wait at least 3 minutes, sometimes up to 5. Still, it removes some of the hair, making my leg looks patchy. It also burns from all the rubbing I do trying to remove more hair - and this is the sensitive skin one. Compared to the Nair lotion, this smells better, but does not work nearly as well. Definitely will not be repurchasing.

The only reason I'm giving this product a 1 instead of a 0 is that at least it didn't do any damage to my skin. But it also didn't have any effect on my hair. The first time I tried it for the recommended time, the second I left it on twice as long. But zip, no hair removal AT ALL. And the smell is foul -- it may be "lavendar" variety, but it's more like "lavendar scented toxic waste." Oh well, at least it was free. I'm sticking to razors from now on.

Re: Shower Power MAX: You see that other picture up there with the nifty pump dispenser? Looks appealing, right? Don't let it fool you. That stuff is evil. I've used it twice. First time = beautiful, wonderful success! My legs were so soft and smooth. All my leg hair just wiped right off. I was so happy thinking that my days of shaving my legs would soon be a thing of the past. I was thrilled when the leg hair grew back in slower and softer. But then... (duh, dunt)... just when I thought it was safe to go back into the shower with my Nair Shower Max, this stuff chewed me up and spit me out. It wouldn't remove even half of the regrowth and then, in an attempt to 'help' the process, I left it on a minute or two longer (carefully checking every 15 secs or so) and thats it all it took. My legs started burning and the poors on my upper thighs turned blood red and the skin was RED. I couldn't get that stuff rinsed off fast enough. Kinda weird that I didn't actually bleed though. Not that I'm complaining. BEWARE....STAY AWA Y! ! !
I thought I was showering with Jekyll and he quickly became Hyde. (gosh that metaphor brings back a few past acquaintainces to mind. LOL).
UPDATE: I must say that despite the bad experience, the regrowth has been so soft and not prickly. That has been an unexpected plus. But I'll still not retry. Next on my list to try is Gigi's hair remover lotion. Fingers crossed...

I got this product for my underarms, as shaving doesn't really work for me, but I also ended up using it on my legs. I had a horrible allergic reaction anywhere I used it, and worst of all, it didn't work any better than shaving. In fact it was less effective than shaving with a cheap dispoable razor. The smell is disgusting, and hangs around after you get out of the shower. The only plus was that it made my legs soft after I shaved them using this as a shaving creme.

I would only use this product once every few weeks on my tummy and legs but stopped emmediately after I noticed white spots all over my tummy area and a few on my legs. I haven't used it ever since and its been like 5 months now and I still have these white spots. Just a few days ago I went to the dermatologist to get my skin checked out and turns out I have a skin condition called "tenia versicolor" I will have to deal with this for the rest of my life thanks to nair! This product can go to hell.

I have dark, coarse hair and my skin seems to haaate razors. I've had a bottle of this stuff kicking around for ages, and after two months of evading the razor, I did a patch test and tried this out. The patch test went a-ok, so I tried it on my legs. It worked REALLY well for long, scraggly hair on my legs. The only things I dislike are:
- It doesn't seem to do as nice of a job on shorter hair a few days later.
- The bottle. Slippery and annoying.
Also, my cat seems to love to smell me when I'm using the stuff, so I need to lock her out of the bathroom. I don't even know what her deal is. Regardless, I will repurchase, possibly in the pump bottle to eliminate the bottle problem. Make sure you moisturize afterward!

I bought this product from Shoppers Drug Mart for 8.99, which is an okay price for me, and before I tried it I decided to read some MakeupAlley reviews. As I read about burning, sores, and ingrown hairs, I grew steadily more and more disheartened. However, I didn't want to let 8.99 go to waste! I decided to try it on my left calf only, and if it started burning I'd wash it off and throw it out. I did that, and I didn't experience discomfort of any kind! It washed off without a problem, stayed on while I was showering, and my calf is silky smooth and hydrated. I'm putting it on the rest of my legs tonight!

I don't understand why everyone seems to have negative experiences with this product. I'm a guy - so if it works on my legs when I haven't shaved in a while it certainly should work for women. If the cream is not taking the hair off, you're not leaving it on long enough. I usually leave it on for 10 minutes (the maximum time) without any burning or irritation. Use the sponge for application and use a washcloth and moisturizing soap in the shower to remove it. Wet the cream with some soap before you try to remove it. PAT the area dry and use a good non-greasy lotion afterwards.

Ladies (and gents if there are any...) please refrain from buying this product. I have used it once and it gave me a nasty rash. I used as directed, even did a patch test. Everything was going fine until it started burning my legs like crazy. I washed it off and continued my shower. Once I dried off I noticed it barely removed the hair and it left my leg red. That is when I noticed a rash starting to develop and some skin peeling off. This a horrible product and it is probably what caused the skin loss in Cabin Fever.
