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.
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.
*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
*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)
Summary: I will not be buying this product again :(
