Jolen Creme Bleach
Advantages: Easy to use, affordable, effective
Disadvantages: None that I can think of
Being a naturally dark haired lady I have suffered with the unsightly dark hair on my upper lip since my teenage years. As all other women who suffer will know it's one of those things that make you feel totally self conscious despite the fact nobody else even notices (I never find myself looking at other womens top lips!) In the last 13 odd years I have tried various methods of ridding myself of said hair to make myself feel better, home waxing (never again!), Hair removal creams (rash anyone?!) and tweezing furiously. Well that's just painful! I decided last summer that bleaching the hair to make it less obvious was the best way to go. Having never tried this method before I asked the sales assistant in my local boots for her reccomendation and she pointed me in the direction of the jolen cream. I can't recall exactly how much it cost but no more than £4-5.
In the box you get the instructions, spatula, a mixing palette, powder and cream. Using it is so simple, simply mix one spatula of powder with two of cream and apply to the area (clean and make-up free), 10 minutes later wash off. I think the instructions state you can leave on for longer if the desired effect isn't achieved but I have never had to. What your left with is previously dark hair lightened to a light blonde colour, leaving it practically invisible against the skin. I have quite sensitive skin, hair removal creams designed for facial use have always stung and left me with a rash but I have never had a problem with the Jolen cream. No stinging, no redness, no unsightly rashes.
I only re-do my top lip every couple of weeks and because you are only using such a small amount I have only had to replace the product once in almost a year. The smell of the product is slightly bleachy (for obvious reasons!) but certainly isn't unpleasant.
I would certainly recommend this product to anyone who has issues with dark facial hair, it's a fantastic confidence booster and doesn't break the bank.
Summary: Fantastic little product that you will buy again and again
