A 'brush on' hair remover, it is easy to apply, easy to remove and creates very little mess. However, the effectiveness is questionable and it can leave skin feeling tight and sensitive.

      Nair Brush on hair remover

      I bought this product a couple of months ago and I bought it from boots, as it was on offer (as these products usually are). I haven't tried any products from nair before and I did not really know what to expect from this brand but the product itself looked good and worth trying, especially for the low price I bought it for.

      - About the product and the packaging

      The hair removal cream comes in small plastic jar which has a screw top lid and attached to the inside of the lid is a fairly large brush applicator - in my opinion it would be better if the brush applicator was smaller, as this product is designed and marketed specifically for use on the face. The cream itself is a light pink colour which looks like any other hair removal cream and it has a really smooth, thick consistency. In each tub you get 50ml of product, the cream I have is the sensitive formula and this product also contains camellia oil and ylang ylang. The box that the product comes in has all of the instructions on, which are simple and easy to follow - so far so good.

      - Using the product

      As with all hair removal creams you are advised to perform a sensitivity skin test on a small area before you use the product fully. I did this, I just placed a very small amount on my arm and I did not have any reaction to the product in the allocated 24 hours, so I could carry on and use the cream. I have used this product twice and both times I have used it on my eyebrows (in the section between my brows and also at the sides, between the end of my brows and my hair line. Firstly I washed my skin well and I also exfoliated before using this product as well, to make my skin smooth and I thought that the product may work better if my skin is smoother and clearer. I used the brush applicator that is attached to the inside of the lid of the product to apply the cream to my skin and it is ok as an application tool. Although I think the brush should have been made smaller as this product is specifically designed to my used on small areas on the face - so I don't know why the brush is fairly large. The application process is fairly quick and not very messy at all. I applied a thick layer where I needed it (you do not rub this product into the skin) and the cream does not drip or move when on the skin as it is so thick in consistency. You are advised to check the area, to see if the hair removes easily, after three minutes and if it does not wipe off then you should wait for another 1-2 minutes. I found that I had to wait for the extra amount of time, as the cream did not remove the hair after the first three minutes (do not leave the cream on for more than five minutes). I removed the cream from my skin by wiping the cream off using a warm, damp cotton pad - just as it is quick, easy and mess free. I made sure all of the cream was removed from my skin and I patted the area dry with a clean towel.

      - Results

      After I wiped the cream from skin and patted dry the area, I immediately noticed that this product has made my skin really smooth and slightly hair free. I found that this product only removed the fair hair from my skin and it did not remove my darker eyebrow hairs from the areas I didn't want them to be. The results from this product for me were really disappointing as I was hoping to stop using tweezers and use this product to get rid of the stray hair of my brows instead but it is not to be. I also found that even though this product made my skin smooth immediately after using this product it actually made my skin feel really tight, dry and flakey the day after using this product - this tight, dry, flakey feel of my skin on the areas in which I used this product lasted for about a week! Overall, this product only removed the fair hairs that are hardly noticeable around my brows and it did not remove the darker hair, which was really quite disappointing. And it also made my skin tight, dry and flakey where I had used this product and this effect lasted for about a week!

      - Price and availability

      I bought this product months ago as it was on offer in boots for just over £2 I think but it is now priced at: £4.89 in boots, £2 at asda, superdrug and tesco. I think the price for this product in the latter three stores is great and I would not have payed any more for this product - especially as it didn't work at all for me.

      Conclusions

      Positives

      *Very easy to use and the cream is also very easy to remove
      *Did not irritate my skin while using the cream
      *Very cheap in most stores
      *Does not smell too bad

      Negatives

      *Did not remove any hair apart from very fair hair - it just did not work at all for me
      *Made my skin tight, dry and flakey in the areas in which I had applied this product - and this effect lasted for about a week
      *The application brush is really quite big especially as this product is for the face

      Thank you for reading my review

      (the two stars are for the easy, quick application process and the low price of the product)

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Remove any trace of unwanted hair, but don't expect a nice aroma....

      Now ladies don't deny it, the majority of us have a bit of facial hair in places we wish we didn't; my ex-boyfriend used to tease me endlessly about the tiny bit of very pale hair on the edge of my top lip, to a point where I got so fed up I decided to do something about it - and from a chat with a friend of mine she recommended this hair remover to me, so I wandered off to Boots to get one in a vain attempt to shut him up - so I've been using this a while now!

      ~*~ What is Nair Facial Brush on? ~*~

      This stuff is a sensitive facial brush on hair removal cream essentially; it is made with Camellia Oil and Ylang-Ylang, to give it a formula that is expert at removing hair, in sensitive areas. Its formula means that the hair is removed from underneath the skin - effectively giving you a nice smooth finish. However you can use it on bikini line as well as your face, and other areas as directed, make sure you read the instructions just because you don't want to be burning your skin as it will be very uncomfortable.

      ~*~ How to use it ~*~

      Make sure you have taken your entire make up, creams or any facial products off the area you are going to be applying the cream to.

      Apply a thick layer of the cream where you would like to remove the hair

      Leave it for around 3 minutes and test the area to see if the cream has taken effect, if it hasn't you can leave it for another 2 minutes maximum... Do not leave any longer else you will damage your skin.

      Then remove it with warm water, and obviously moisturise the area!

      ~*~ Does it work? ~*~

      Yes it does work but not without some downsides personally anyway. The first time I used it I remember not really thinking much about it - and then quite quickly at the three minute mark it started to feel a little bit weird, it began to feel a little bit like it was stinging so I decided to take it off fairly quickly after that, but the feeling stayed as soon as it was taken off for a while - it was quite a tingly sensation for some time afterwards. So I didn't put anything on it, or touch it for an hour or so until it had calmed down as it looked a tiny bit red. Eventually it did calm down; but that didn't put me off!

      I did use it again a couple of weeks later when the hair decided to poke it's head out again - it wasn't that bad actually as I expected to have some regrowth problems but thank fully it wasn't too bad, it had grown back as normal. Thankfully on a second attempt I didn't remove the hair with warm water I actually used a moisturising facial wipe, and I didn't get any nasty tingling or redness once it had been removed so that is my tip, if you get a bit of stinging. I think it was partially due to the brush as it is a little bit harsh on the skin once you have applied the cream, so once it's on don't keep moving it about, as the brush will irritate your skin

      However once the hair has been removed it does actually leave your skin nice and soft, for a few days anyway. Depending on how harsh your hair is will depend how harsh your regrowth is. I found about four or five days later I could feel a tiny bit of stubble coming through but nothing that you would call major, or needing any treatment. I've noticed however since I started using it about a year ago, that the hair I have in that tiny little area has become much fairer, so I am using this much less often because I am just not noticing the hair. My new boyfriend hasn't mentioned it, so it must not be visible - so I am going to keep a watch on it but thanks to its apparent bleaching qualities you can't see much anymore.

      Now my only complaint with this stuff, which is my same complaint for any hair removal cream, is the fact that it smells awful! When it is sat under your nose, it's a smell that you aren't going to be able to forget about any time soon which well, great makes the experience so much more fun! It will disappear quite quickly after you've taken it off thank gawd for that so you aren't going to be smelling that aroma all day!
      I tried it on my eyebrows but I have far thicker eyebrows than I do on the rest of my hair, so there was no chance the five minutes was going to work on them. I did try but it wasn't happening so I'm sticking with the plucking on that one - didn't really want to damage my skin too much and look all red!

      Oh yes, and it comes in a 50ml pot :)

      ~*~ Price and Availability ~*~

      Have a scout around on the internet for places that stock this because I have only ever seen it in Boots if I'm honest which is where I bought mine for £4.89 - but with your advantage card you can get yourself 16 points, so it's almost worth it for sixteen pence worth of points. Have a look around though because you never know where you might find it and for what bargain you might find it! I've had my current bottle for about 6 months and I've still got plenty left, so it isn't an item you'll get through very quickly!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        very useful product and good performance

        I have been using this for a while and its the only facial hair removing cream I would use. It does sting the first time I used it but the results were great.

        I use once a week and apply prior to going in the bath as the steam seems to help not sure why but it really does make a difference. I recommend that it is used in the evening so you don't have to apply makeup as my skin sometimes is a bit red afterwards. It isn't sore and it fades after a short while so is only minor irritation. My skin is quite tolerant so if you have sensitive skin It may be worth being cautious when using it. Also as I use this on unwanted side burn hair the reaction may be more extreme on more sensitive areas such as the upper lip.

        Great product at a reasonable price. You don't need to use much of the product on application so the bottle will last you a while. I have found that after a few months if unsused the cream becomes less effective I always notice better results when using a fresh bottle.

        The smell can be a bit unpleasant but I think this is the same with most hair removal products.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I get lots of hair around my upper lips and side burns and applied the cream to those areas using the brush attached to the lid.I felt no stinging or burning sensations during the 4 minutes I had it on, although when I removed the cream using a damp towel it was very painful. Immediately after I washed my face with warm water without soap and soon after my face had exploded with redness. I used Aveeno cream to reduce dryness occuring and 3 hours later there were still no sign of the redness reducing. A small rash is also forming on the side on my upper lip. This product has removed all the hair nicely, although the effects are painful and off putting. I am extremely reluctant to use this again.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Nair have many great products for hair removal, and this is another one!

        Firstly I am not a big fan of plucking my eyebrows, because for some reason I always end up sneezing! So a few years ago I went around looking for a treatment that wasn't too expensive, and that mirrored Veet that I use on my legs. I stumbled upon Nair, hair removal for sensitive skin, which was created for use on the face.

        The product --> This comes in a cardboard box with a clear front, and instructions on the back. However, on the little tub itself, which lid turns into the facial brush, there is all the information needed about how to apply it. It is a 50ml bottle.

        How to use --> The skin has to be clean before use, without make up. Before using it for the first time it should be tested on the skin, and for 48 hours checked to make sure there is no allergic reaction from it. After this time, and no bad reaction, it can be applied to where you want it (e.g. eyebrows and upper lip) to cover all the area wanted to remove hair. I always leave on for 5 minutes, and then wash off with cold water. I don't rub my face afterwards, as it can feel a little hot. However, the results are great and there is no pain like plucking or waxing involved!

        I really do find this great product, and for somebody like me who doesn't like plucking it's brilliant. It lasts for ages - I have had this bottle for almost 10 months now, and there is still half a bottle left. It is such a quick process too, and shapes eyebrows great. The smell because it is a hair removal cream is not very nice, it almost smells eggy like. But this can easily be forgotten, and soon disappears.

        The cost --> This is £4.89 in boots, but because it lasts so long it really is a great purchase. Especially because waxing costs about £8 now for facial, this is great.

        A smashing product that takes away the pain of plucking! Brilliant, fast and good results. Recommend.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        One to avoid.

        I have always waxed my upper lip and find that waxing works really well for me but it does get expensive. I was complaining to my best friend about the amount of money that I spend on waxing and she recommended this product. I was reluctant to try it because I just didn't want to take any risks with my face. She insisted that it worked as well as waxing although she did warn me that when you first use it it leaves your skin feeling less than smooth. What swung it for me was the price. At £5 for a bottle that she said lasted her for at least six months I couldn't afford not to try this.

        ==What it's supposed to do==
        This Nair product is made specifically for facial hair meaning that it's more gentle than other Nair products. Nair do say that you can use this on other sensitive areas but I only used it on my face. Nair claim that hair will be removed from below the skin and leave skin feeling smooth.

        ==My Experience==
        I followed the instructions precisely for this product, I didn't want to risk leaving it on for too long. I applied it evenly and generously, I left it for three minutes, checked a small patch as recommended and then left it for the two additional minutes before rinsing it. I have dark hair that can be quite thick so before I used the product I soaked my face in hot water as recommended for tougher hair. When I removed the cream I found that the lighter hairs (the ones that don't bother me anyway) had gone but the darker hairs were still there. Not only did this product not remove my hair it left my skin feeling terrible. Far from leaving it feeling soft my skin felt rough and just horrible. This feeling lasted for a couple of days. It didn't look red or irritated fortunately but touching my upper lip was unpleasant.

        ==Recommended?==
        If you have lighter hair this product mightr work for you but it didn't remove the majority of my hair and it left my skin feeling horrible so this is a product that I most deifnitely do not recommend.

          Disadvantages

          Get rid of that moustache!

          I've had annoying hairs above my lip for years now and I decided a few months ago that it was time I did something about it. I walked into Superdrug and found this hair remover. Being a bit wary of putting something like this on my face, I went on dooyoo and read the other reviews. Most say it was painful and ineffective but there were some positive comments. At the end of the day, noone was killed and it got rid of at least some of the hair.

          It's hard to notice my 'moustache' unless the light's on it or I've drunk coke or blackcurrant. I'm lucky in a sense because I am fair; if I was dark I would look something like Captain Beefheart.

          Anyway, the fact was, something had to be done so I ended up buying the cream.

          The instructions are pretty clearly laid out on the outside of the box. You remove all make-up, brush the cream on where the hair is, then after three minutes rinse off with a wet flannel and pat dry with a towel.

          The cream is a baby pink, it's thick and smells like hair remover, which isn't the worst thing I've ever smelt but not the loveliest either. You apply it with the brush that's attached to the lid, kind of like nail varnish. The brush is quite big so it's not going to be really accurate.

          I could feel it tingle about a minute after I'd put it on, and by the time it was due to be taken off, it was a bit sore but not massively so. It did take a while to get all of the cream off but it's very important you follow the instructions so as not to irritate the skin any further.

          Once I had managed to remove all of the cream, it was clear that it had removed most of the hairs which was fantastic. However, for the next five days the area was crimson and slightly swollen, and I did get a couple of comments, so that is definitely something to bear in mind. But it stopped being painful the day after.

          This was a few months ago and some of the hairs have grown back but not all of them, and overall I am pleased with the result. The side effects are a shame but to get rid of those nasty hairs, for me it's worth it.

          The bottle is quite small, you get 50ml for your money, which according to a box on my right is about £4.84.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great easy to use product but it is a bit stinky.

          There comes a time in every girls life when like it or not some sort of facial hair remover will become a permanent lodger in your bathroom cabinet. That is unless you want to grow old naturally and become the weird bearded lady at number 53 or you are just a lucky lass.
          About a month ago, I discovered I was not so lucky to escape the invasion of facial hair and I just don't think I could pull of the hairy bear look, so my hunt for a suitable hair remover begun.

          There really is a lot of choice out there, wax, razors, bleach and creams all claiming to be the best at removing facial hair. I have fairly sensitive skin and really didn't want to risk waxing my face, shaving my face just didn't appeal to me and I was a bit scared of using bleach, I decided to use a cream.
          So when I found this Nair - facial brush on hair remover specifically for sensitive skin I thought that it would be perfect.

          The hair remover comes in a little cardboard box with a big instruction sheet. This is set out in an easy to understand format with very little jargon.
          The bottle of cream looks a bit like an over sized nail polish bottle, it is a plastic bottle with a screw top lid, the brush applicator is attached to the underside of the lid. There are basic instructions on the back which is great because most people would throw the leaflet in the box away.

          The cream is a pale pink colour, sadly it does have that rather disgusting strong chemical smell to it, which lingers for quite a while after use.

          Using the product was very simple, even to a novice like me. It is recommended that you do a skin test 24 hours before use to make sure you are not going to have an adverse reaction to the cream.
          · First wash your face to remove all make up and any lotions or potions you may have on your skin.
          · Next, using the applicator brush you simply apply the cream in a thick layer to the areas where you want hair to be removed.
          · Leave for three minutes and remove a little of the cream to see if it has worked, my hairs must be very stubborn because they are still clinging on for dear life at this stage. If you need to you can leave the cream on for a further two minutes at the most.
          · Wash the cream off with warm water and pat dry, do not use any cleansers or soap.

          That's it, you should be footloose and hair free.

          I found that it worked brilliantly, the brush helped to provide accurate coverage and when I washed it off after five minutes, all of the unwanted hairs were gone. My skin felt smooth and soft although it was a little red and this lasted for about an hour or two after use so it's probably best to use before bed and not before a night out.

          The cream is enriched with camellia Oil and Ylang-Ylang which I think contributes to the lovely smooth skin I am left with after use. But I am not sure why they can't add a nice smelling scent as this would really make using the product more enjoyable.

          Each bottle contains 50ml of the cream, I use it about once a week and a bottle would last me for about two months. You can buy this from supermarkets, chemists and cosmetic stores. I bought mine from Sainsburys for £4.58. Which I think is good value considering it does the job and lasts for a good while.

          You can find the full list of ingredients and cautions such as 'do not ingest' and 'do not let kids play with it' at www.naircare.co.uk/p_creams_brushon_information.php.

            Disadvantages

            NOT ONE I WOULD ADVISE!

            Would be good if it lasted!

            *Product*

            Nair Facial Brush On Hair Remover with sensitive formula is an innovative beauty product to aide the removal of unwanted facial hair. It contains camellia oil and ylang ylang and has been dermatologically tested.

            *Packaging*

            This is comes in a box as shown in the dooyoo picture though I recently threw it out though most of the information is located on the bottle as well as the box. The bottle is plastic *recycle* and round with a screw off grey lid. There is a label around the bottle which has the brand name and product name. On the other side there is instructions for use, any caution warnings, company details and a logo stating this can be used for 12months from opening.

            *Cream*

            When you screw off the lid, you discover a long handle with a thick brush attached to the end. The handle is built into the lid like nail polish lids. The hair removal cream is thick and has a baby pink shade. The smell is strong and typical of the majority of hair remover products.

            *How to Use*

            From the bottle

            Irritation or allergic reaction may occur with some people, even after prior use without adverse effects. Therefore, a test should always be carried out on a small part of the area to be treated before each use. Follow the instructions and if the skin is normal after 24hrs, proceed with the full application.

            1. Remove all makeup and other creams or lotions from your face.

            2. Gentle brush on the cream to completely cover the area of unwanted hair with a thick, even layer. Do not rub in. Replace the cap after use.

            3. After 3mins, test a small area. If the hair does not wipe off easily, leave on for 1-2minutes longer. Do not leave for more than 5minutes in total.

            4. Rinse off thouroughly, with lukewarm water, use a wet flannel if required and pat dry with a soft towel. Do not rub or use soap.

            Note - for hair that is especially coarse or hard to remove, saturate the hair with water water for several minutes before application, pat dry then apply the cream.

            *Cautions*

            - follow the instructions
            - contains thioglycolate
            - contains alkali
            - avoid contact with the eyes. In the event of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice

            *Availability and Price*

            I think this is fairly new and I have only spotted it in Superdrug at £2.99 but I am sure other stores will stock this. Available in 50ml size.

            *My Opinion*

            You may have read in a previous review that I have a condition which I refer to as *hairchinitis*. I suffer with dark and scary hairs under my chin and a few around my lip area and its depressing to say the least. Unfortuantely it is something that both my Mother and my Granny have and has passed on to me..I couldn't have the nice skin or nice hair..I had to have the hairy chin! So I have plucked, I have trimmed, I have used various hair removal with no success and I can simply not afford laser treatment to blast the hairy bandits for good!

            In my desperation, I scoured the hair removal treatments and spotted Nair Facial Brush on for sensitive skin. I do have quite sensitive skin and react to various creams and lotions but picked it up and paid the £2.99. I took it home and opened it up. The cream looks a pretty pink shade and the brush is a good size though it has that awful chemical hair remover smell which is vile but I persevered and got out my trusty mirror.

            On application, the cream is very cold and goes on thick which is good as you need a thick layer for it to work its magic. By about 2mins my skin was starting to tingle and I tried to see if it was working at 3mins but the hair wasn't for budging so I gritted my teeth and left it for the whole 5mins maximum time then hopped off to the bathroom.

            I used a soft sponge to remove and along with some luke warm water and I began to gently wipe the cream off. Ouch it stings something terrible when I was wiping which was very unpleasant. I eventually got the cream off and noticed that not only were the hairs still there..they were darker and thicker looking that before! Oh no what I had I done!

            I patted my face dry and noticed a few hairs were moving then so I scrubbed a little which you aren't really supposed to but some of the hairs came off. I was left with a sore and tender red chin which I tried to soothe with some cool water but this did not make a difference.

            So I had managed to kill some of the hair though my chin still had a stubbly appearance and feel to it and by the end of the day..hairs were noticebly clawing their evil ways back onto my skin! I have tried and tried this again as I don't want to waste my money though I personally don't see the point in using a cream that :

            - doesn't remove all hairs after application
            - leaves you stubbly
            - is vile in smell
            - stings during and after application
            - hairs come back within a few hours
            - hairs are thicker and darker when they come back!

            I am sorely dissappointed with this hair removal cream as it doesn't succeed in what it is supposed to and I wouldn't recommend it.


            Thanks for reading

              Very handy product,

              If you ever have the problem of unwanted hair and you are fed up with plucking, waxing and shaving then Nair sensitive hair remover could be the product for you.

              It comes in a small twist top bottle, with a built in brush which I find very handy for applying carefully onto my skin. The smell is a little off putting, but not as bad as most hair removal products and it also disappears after washing off. So for the product itself you spread it on to the area that needs treating and leave for up to 5 minutes. Never exceed that time. If you feel any discomfort then you should wash of immediately. I have fairly sensitive skin and found that this was gentle enough to use for me and cause no irritation at all. It contains Camellia Oil and Ylang Ylang oil which help calm the skin.

              The result? Completely hair free and smooth skin. Unfortunately it doesn't last forever, but up to a week and is the best method of hair removal compared to waxing and shaving in my opinion. Also a little goes a long way making it great value for money.

              Smooth as a baby's ***

              If you have ever suffered from a reaction be it mild or otherwise from using a facial hair removal product- then I would recommend that you try Nair Hair Remover Sensitive Formula with Camellia Oil and Ylang Ylang. I have never found a product before this one that caused me no problems whatsoever.

              The pack I bought was a 50ml container and the cap is also an intregal brush and the contents, a cream, brushes on easily. You do not have to rub it in- just leave it on from 3 minutes to 5 minutes and your facial hair will be easily removed with a damp flannel or moist tissue. After which you should pat the area dry with a towel or dry tissue. I have never experienced any after tingle.

              If you have particularly coarse hair they recommend that you should moisten the area first, with warm water for several minutes, pat dry and then apply the cream.

              As with any similar product you need to do an allergy/sensitivity test on a small area 24 hours before using for the main area for hair removal.

              All hair removal products I have found have a distinctive smell and this is no different- but the smell is more underlying than pungent.

              It lasts for ages- so a good buy.

              Don't put this stuff on your face!

              I purchased a small pot of this a while back. I think I paid around £4.50 for it at the time. - I was desperate for something to finally work!

              The pot is quite small, if you need to remove a large area of hair using this may become quite expensive. I followed the instructions and applied it to the area I was trying to treat (The smell is awful!) It states that 3-4 minutes would be sufficient - but no longer than 5. After about 2 minutes I could feel my skin start stinging/burning, I used a damp flannel to wipe the cream off of my face. (This hurt even more!)

              I was left with red, rashy, spotty, irritable skin in the area I put the cream. Not only that, if didn't even really work properly!

              I do not recommend this AT ALL. It doesn't work. Well it didn't for me. (I seriously suggest you stay away from it if you have sensitive skin.)

              Disadvantages

              Worth buying if you need to treat facial hair at home.

              I first used Nair Facial Brush on Sensitive a few years ago and found that it caused soreness and burning around the nose and mouth area. However, I read somewhere about the improvements that have been made on this product and so I decided to try it again.

              This product is very easy to use and can be used for any area of the body as well as the face. All you have to do is to brush the paste on with the brush provided and rinse off after about 4 minutes. It does have a very pungent smell but it isn't as bad as the old Veet in a tube if you have ever used that.

              Some people may experience irritation so it's wise to do a skin test before applying this product. Just put a little on the area you are going to treat and wash it off after a few minutes. If you get no reaction within 24 hours it's safe to use this.

              Before use remove makeup and any other product you have on your face. Gently brush the cream on so that it covers the area you want to treat with a thick, even layer. Be careful not to rub it at all or it will cause burning.

              Rinse off with warm water. I found that an old flannel was ideal for this as you can rinse your face and pat it to remove the cream with rubbing. Pat dry with a towel but whatever you do don't rub your skin with the towel as it is still very sensitive and the pores are open after the treatment and it will burn. Don't use soap to wash the cream off as there can be a reaction between the two and the soap may burn your skin.

              I found this quite effective but I had to reapply it the next day as it hadn't resolved the problem completely. According to the instructions it isn't safe to leave this on more than five minutes although I found that it started to burn after four minutes. It all depends on your skin type.

              I did find this easy to use and in spite of the fact that I had to reapply it, I would buy it again. The 50ml bottle I bought cost around £3 and I would estimate that I will get get at least ten applications from it. So, it's good value for money.
