Although I usually avoid hair depilatories on the face (stubble, anyone!), after reading reviews, I decided to give this a go. And although I was originally planning to return it, based on the price, I'm so glad I didn't! I use it almost every 2 weeks. Although I only mix it in with my routine - I still swear by laser, it's the best, this is a great 'in-between' laser treatments. It does exactly what it says - removes hair without irritation. ALWAYS apply the balm first, before you put the hair removal cream on, this is what keeps the skin protected from irritation. I usually leave it just under 10 minutes - voila, no pain, no redness, no hair.
I will re-purchase. And although I was initially very off put by the price tag, I've had one tube almost 6 months, so it's quite good value.

This has been my favorite hair removal product so far. It gets the job done and there is barely any burning sensation but there is a tingle but I highly recommend this to anyone.

This broke me out. Not just where I used it but all over basically. Little red hives/rash. It worked for sure but since I broke out, I returned it.

Followed the instructions and worked perfectly for me! No burning/redness/irritation that everyone else on here did.
Used the "Skin Guarding Balm" on upper lip area, rubbed it in as if it were a lotion, then put the hair removal cream on my finger (as directed) and applied it immiatedly to my skin. I didn't notice a particularly bad smell, most hair removers have that kind of smell so it didn't bother me.
Let it do it's thing for 8 minutes (recommended 6-8), wipes it off with a cotton pad and voila. Perfectly smooth skin. Not only did it remove all visible hair, but I also noticed the texture of the skin there was also smoother.
The only thing I don't like about this product is the price. About $30 CND for 19g? I feel like I'd run out of the removal cream and have a lot of the balm left over. So that seems a bit wasteful.

I have tried this twice on my fine,blond upper lip hair....doesn't do a thing for me!
I just noted the remark below about dabbing on the skin protector....will try this next time....
I got a 2pack of this for $3.90 at BJs...
I will update next time I try it...but so far...no good for me
Update....this does not work for me .....

I love this stuff! It works miracles. I know it's kinda expensive but you don't need a thick layer for t to work and this is coming from the girl with extremely thick hair! I love this because it does the job and never burns my skin like other products do

It worked and didn't irritate my skin. Waxing breaks me out like crazy so I was happy to find a gentler alternative.
The only cons are that it's expensive and the packaging is wasteful.

I have fine light blonde slightly light brown facial hair on my lip. This is my second time buying this product. Works well cheaper then going to the salon.
I found the trick in not to glide the skin protector across you skin but that it works better when you dab it on and smooth it over with your finger.
I have sensitive breakout prone skin and I have Never had a reaction from this product.

I have to say I am impressed. Previous depilatory creams just burned and lot hair behind. This works well, upper lip hair gone after 10 minutes and 1 swipe of a cotton pad. No burning. Odor is tolerable. Just pricey.

Some of the Olay facial products are mainstays in my cleansing routine. That said, when I saw the Smooth Finish Facial Hair removal duo Double Package offering in Costco, I thought to buy and try with my daughter-she is 30, I am 54.
Separately, we each tried it, leaving it on for 10 minutes, then a few weeks later, 15 minutes.
Not remarkable, sorry to say.
Lesson learned- read a few reviews before spending $25!
