I followed instruction exactly.
Smell was horrible, and my hair barely fell out.
What' worse, it actually stings!!
My skin turned red from this product.

Nair leaves my legs feeling very smooth with no irritation if I use it properly. I leave it on for 5 to 6 minutes, wipe it off with a wash cloth (do not rub! it will irritate your skin), then hop in the shower and use the water to get rid of most of the left over slimy feel. Once you are finished with your shower your legs should be smooth and no longer slimy. I cannot keep my legs smooth with shaving because I get bumps and ingrown hair that will not go away unless I use nair. Although this is great for my legs I cannot use it on my armpits. I have tried it twice and each time, although I only left it on for three minutes, my armpits stung so much (for a few days and it also didn't remove the hair) :( this is why I took off one lippy. Since I know it works for my legs but not on my underarms I can tell you that it is VERY important to test a small area on the body part you are planning to use the product on.

This product is terrible. It burns, it smells terrible, and I had to leave it on for almost ten minutes for it to remove hair. Even then I still had many spots where there was still some hair. Definitely do not recommend this

I hated this product. first of all, this lotion is STANKY! Ughh, the smell is horrid! It did not remove all my hair, it left it patchy actually. And it burns so the point where i can't keep it on long enough to ensure that more hair is removed.

This was the second hair removal creme I have ever used. At first I tried Veet but since it was pricy I wanted a cheaper alternative so I turned to Nair. I have only used it once and I do not like it. It didn't work whatsoever to remove my hair, I ended up going back to veet. Overall I give this product a 2/5 and a no to repurchasing.

I use Nair on my arms exclusively. (I shave everywhere else). Surprisingly it only takes like 3-4 min for me but you need to use really heavy coverage in order for it to work the best. I've burned myself a couple times but once you figure out about how long you need to leave it on for, you shouldn't have this problem. I like that my hair grows back slower and less stubby compared with shaving.
The biggest issue that I have with this is that awful smell! I can tell they tried to cover up the smell with an overly strong baby powder odor that just worsens the problem. I wipe it off with a wet towel but it takes multiple washes to get the smell out of the towel. Other than that, this stuff works for me.

I bought the Nair with baby oil for smooth skin one, and I didn't get any harsh chemical smell. A slight one, but the baby oil overpowered it. You do have to use quite a lot, so the bottle doesn't last as long as I wish it did. You either love nair, or you hate it. But it worked for me. I have medium-coarse leg hair and after 3 minutes, I'm basically done. I just wipe it off with a washcloth then wash it off. If I want my soft legs to last a little longer, I let it sit there for another 2 or 3 minutes, but NEVER over 10 minutes. Nair burns away hair, and it will start to burn away skin. My skin is usually baby smooth for 4-5 days, compared to shaving where I was prickly after a couple days. And this is a lot quicker than shaving, which is great. Veet leaves me patchy, and I have to go back with a razor and its so annoying. Nair works differently on everyone, so just try it out on a small section of your leg, an if it doesn't work, return it.

Nair was extremely popular when i was in high school. I always used a razor until i was introduced to lotion hair remover. When first put on it has s tingling hot sensation but after a few minutes it subsides and feels cool. I wipe off with warm warm and pat with a towel. My legs feel SO smooth and hair does not grow back for about 3-4 days. Perfect accessory for summer.

It works exactly like it says it will for me at least. I don't think the odor is really that bad, if you're buying chemicals, you have to expect it to have some sort of chemical smell. I have no problems with it. For the quantity it gives you it is kind of expensive so I'd say shave when you can but if you're in a hurry or just don't like shaving then it's a really good product.

Nair is one of those tricky products that either works amazingly well or, literally, scars you for life. For me, Nair works amazingly well but only in a very limited capacity. Judging from the reviews here (save for the one reviewer that called others "dumb" for sharing their experiences and opinion. Really, lady? You can't disagree with people you don't know without childish insults?), I think Nair is kind of hit or miss for every one.
First, I'll admit that I've used Nair on just about every part of my body in a vain effort to avoid shaving or waxing because I'm lazy. If I can find a shortcut, I'll use it. For the most part, Nair ain't a short cut. If anything, it can make matters infinitely worse. When I was a teenager, I foolishly tried using Nair on my underarms. Even after I did a patch test, it still left my underarms red and raw for about three days. Not pretty and it certain didn't feel good. My legs didn't fare much better. While they weren't raw, I developed weird-ish bumps and the hair grew back just as fast as it does when I shave. Sort of pointless, no? My third use of Nair was on my upper lip and brows. I actually used it for a while on my face in between waxes which I wouldn't recommend. While I didn't break out, it's rather useless in removing the hair there. It just sort of melts the hair leaving you with decidedly odd looking stubble that grows back almost immediately. The one and only way I can use Nair is for my bikini area. Granted, you have to be VERY careful not to get it on any of your sensitive bits but otherwise, it works fairly well. I won't say it's comparable to a bikini wax (which I've never gotten) but it's a somewhat decent alternative.
Aside from its hit-and-miss hair removing ability, Nair is also downright stinky and messy to use. No matter what scent you get, it reeks and the chemical-y smell lingers. My goodness how it lingers! Then there's the whole process of applying, waiting, and praying you've left it on long enough to remove the hair because a second pass will leave you with raw skin. Unless you're rather patient, it can be a pain to use. I can't imagine who can use this in the way it is advertised because I haven't met one person - fair, dark, hairy, non-hairy- who can use this as directed/advertised and get awesome results. I'm sure there's someone out there who can but I haven't met them. I've also noticed that the price has gone up exponentially. Even the regular "old" formula is about $6-7 which isn't too expensive but Nair used to be insanely cheap.
Even though I gave Nair a decent rating, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone because waxing it really the better alternative. It hurts like hell but it's better than waiting 10 minutes with stinky lotion on your *insert name of body part here* while praying that it removes unwanted hair but leaves your skin intact. Even if you do a patch test, Nair is kind of unpredictable and really doesn't remove all the hair, especially if your hair is coarse and thick. If you have very sensitive skin, I say skip is altogether. I have pretty rough skin and even I can only use this in a limited capacity.
