After using Nair sensitive hair removal cream (the pink tube) around 3-4 years ago on my legs, and being burnt, covered in a nasty irritating red rash, and having hair growth come through just 2 days after application - I was VERY sceptical about trying this; especially on such a sensitive area.
But god have I been pleasantly surprised!
Being a typical english rose, extremely pale, painfully sensitive and also having very dry skin, I was surprised not to have been left red, itchy and bleeding from this product. Instead, I felt absolutely no irritation - which i found very bizarre! There was no burning sensation, itching or stinging. I left this product on for exactly 10 minutes, as it states to not go over this amount of time. I firmly (not too rough, but apply some pressure) wiped the thick layer of cream away from the area, and voila - absolutely hairless, silky smooth skin!
I have never been so pleasantly surprised to have such a good experience with a Nair hair removal cream, I thought that this would turn into a disaster!
A good tip when using this is to ensure your skin is in good healthy condition, no scabs/cuts, rashes or broken skin as this may cause irritation. I like to do this before getting into the bath or shower. I just apply a thick layer (as hair tends to be very course in this intimate area). Avoid rubbing in, just gently spread over the area, ensuring the thickness of the cream is consistent throughout the chosen area. I prefer to set a timer for 10 minutes, and at the 5-6 minute mark gently test an area to see if the hair is becoming weak/coming away from the skin.
A good indication that the product is working for me, is that my hair tends to go curly/crimped as the chemicals are working at dissolving the hair. At this mark, I rub off the product with a soft wet cloth using lukewarm water. I then like to have a shower as usual, to rinse off any remaining cream.
Extremely cheap, this product cost me £1 from Poundland!!
Works really well for me
Doesn't irritate my skin
Lasts longer than shaving
No razor burn/rash
The smell isn't amazing, but it doesn't linger onto your skin which is great!
I totally understand that this product isn't for everyone, I didn't think it would be for me after my not so good experience a few years ago with the pink tube on my legs, however after this positive experience I am willing to try it again! I would definitely give this product a try, even if you don't like it, you can get it for as cheap as £1.
