I have always tried new hair removal creams to try and find one I really like as I find creams quick and easy to use especially for when going on a night out. I have used many hair removal techniques as well as creams such as shaving and using an epilator (Machine that plucks the hairs). I have always stuck to shaving as its a lot simpler and makes my legs smoother,but it tends to dry out my legs which leads me to pile on the moisturiser. With epilators I tend to get small lumps where some of the hairs have been plucked, plus its a painful process which I don't want to repeat regularly.
The packaging is very cute and girly. Comes in a white squeezable tube with an orange cap, the with the Nair logo, a cartoon women on the front and a little information about the product. I'm not very found of the smell, as its pretty strong and definitely doesn't smell like peach like it indicates on the label.
I do like this product as it saves a lot of time and leaves your legs extremely smooth. I did find that I still needed to apply a small amount of moisturiser on afterwards, as my legs did feel a little dry. I also decided to ex foliate after removing the cream, which added extra smoothness!
The product recommends leaving the cream on for 5 minutes and then rinsing. The first time I tried this I followed the instructions carefully, after the 5 minutes I tested a small area on my skin. In the end I had to leave the product on for 15 minutes instead as 5 minutes was not long enough.
I bought this product from Poundland for obviously £1 a few months ago and have only used it about 3 times. The cream has lasted me really well and for the price I would say meets the quality of the product. I would only recommend using this of your under-arms and legs as I don't think it would be benefit sensitive skin.
Overall a nice product which is good for using before a night out, the quality of the product isn't great as the recommended time interval was incorrect and the smell is very strong, but for £1 its a good product.
I am quite a big fan of hair removal before a night out, as it is quicker and easier. You can start on your hair or make-up while the hair removal works its magic. This product is by far my favourite for many reasons.
Usually I shave most of the time as it leaves legs smoother and it does not come with the awful smell. But this product is so easy and it does not smell as much so it has become more of a favourite.
To apply the product, use your hands and smother it onto your desired area. I think you should make it relatively thick as this way you know all your hairs are being touched rather than just a few. The smell might take you over a bit though. It does smell very faintly of peach but the smell of chemicals and hair removal are much stronger.
The product does recommend leaving it on for 5 minutes then washing without scrubbing. I find this to be the worst way to use it. You should in fact leave the product for 10-20 minutes (so ALL the hairs are dissolved) and then rinse while scrubbing with a loofa (big ball to scrub your body) or an exfoliating glove. Use a good moisturiser or body butter after too, as it leaves skin quite dry which is never good.
The packaging is very girly and cute. There is an image of a girl on the front with the words 'Nair Pretty Soft Peach Hair Removal Cream'. The product is in a squeeze bottle and because the screw on lid is underneath it means you use most of the product. You do not end up wasting much before you bin it and it can be screwed tightly to avoid it going crusty and dry. On the back of the bottle there is information about where not to use the cream, what to do if irritation occurs, ingredients and how to use the product for best results.
I purchased the product from pound land for (obviously) £1. I find this is so reasonable as it lasts you quite a long time depending on how often you choose to use it.
The only down fall in my opinion is that it it removes fake tan, and often it removes it in patches so you look very streaky and awful for a while. Although, if you exfoliate well after the hair removal then the rest comes away easily.
I would recommend this product for leg and arm use only. It states on the pack to keep away from your lady garden. Due to a friends bad (and very red) experience, keep away from your face also.
Rated down a star for the smell.
I've had a pretty hit and miss relationship with hair removal creams in the past, and to be honest, I've found that using hair removal creams is a big, smelly hassle, and it's easier just to shave. However, if I want to be able to go a day or two without shaving my legs and still have them feeling smooth, I will use Nair Soft Peach. As I said, I'm not a fan of hair removal creams generally, but this is probably the best of them.
I quite like the packaging of this product, the tube is white and orange, and it says 'Nair pretty' accross the top. There is a cute cartoon of a girl on the front. It's very pretty packaging.
The product smells marginally better than those that don't contain something to attempt to cover up the hideous smell of hair removal creams, but not a lot. The smell of peach is faint at best, and rather overpowered by the chemical smell.
Apply this product with your hands, or an old sponge, and smooth it over the area you wish to remove hair from. Do it quite thickly, if you have an area that is only thinly covered, you will find that not all the hair will be removed. The packaging says to apply for 5 mins, then keep checking, but I personally think it's a waste of time, at 5 mins only bits of hair will be ready to come off. I leave it for ten mins, then shower off. It says not to rub, but if you don't give your skin a good scrub, all that hair is not coming off! I use exfoliating gloves to get it all off.
Moisturise well afterwards, with a thick, non-scented moisturiser so as not to further irritate your skin. You should find that the area is quite smooth. It will stay feeling smooth for about a day than shaving does,and when the hairs grow back, they won't feel as stubbly. This is because when you shave, the hairs are cut, leaving blunt, sharp ends, whereas when you use hair removers, the hair is dissolved, so the ends of the hair is softer, meaning your legs will feel smoother for longer.
Now I wrote a review basically slating the raspberry version of this cream few weeks ago so I have no idea why I then went out and brought the Peach scented one, maybe because it was a £1 and I was hoping peach's deliver better results or something. BUT I was pleasantly surprised to find that this one worked! I have no idea how because this one must contain the exact same ingredients as the raspberry version but how did this one work and the other didnt?! One of life's great mysteries lol.
So What Is It?:
Well as you have guessed by now this is a hair removal cream that can be used on legs, bikini & armpits, I have only ever used this on my legs I don't trust it anywhere near my bikini area!! This particular cream is said to smell of peaches leaving you with not only soft legs but also legs that smell amazing.
This cream is said to be specifically designed for people who are sick of shaving all the time and want something that lasts a lot longer. So this cream promises to leave your legs hair free for twice as long as shaving so in my experience that would be around 4-5 days. They promise that this cream has a peachy scent to it which covers up that usual horrid hair removal smell and that it will leave your legs feeling intensely moisturised and best of all hair free.
* WEAR GLOVES BECAUSE THE HORRIBLE SMELL DOES TRANSFER TO YOUR HANDS!!*
On the back of the tube it says to apply a large but even amount of this cream onto your legs or wherever your planning on using it but do not rub in, just leave to sit on your skin.
The back of the tube suggests that you should leave it on your skin for around 5 minutes but I suggest leaving it for 10 minutes to get the best results.
Then you simply get an old sponge or something and begin to rub off with warm water until all of the cream has gone. Then just pat dry and moisturise as normal.
Don't be fooled by the promise of this cream smelling of peaches because it doesnt. There is a faint whiff of peach if you really smell but believe me you don't want to. Like most hair removal creams this smells like a mixture of fish guts and sewage now this must be something to do with the ingredients used, I have no idea but the smell doesnt linger for long especially if you have a quick wash with shower gel. So overall the stench is pretty horrifying.
After leaving this on for around 10 minutes and then washing it off I wasn't expecting the best results because of the bad experience I had with the raspberry version of this cream. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that my legs were smooth and best of all hairless! Maybe it had something to do with the amount of time I left it on I honestly don't know but there was not a hair in sight when I washed it off! And best of all my legs felt like they had just been moisturised! I was shocked to say the least but very happy.
If your looking to buy one of the scented Nair creams then the Peach one is definitely the one to get for some reason it just works better. The smell is very off putting but if you can learn to get past that then this is a fabulous product. It works and does leave your legs hairless for longer than shaving, I'm glad I took a chance on this because it certainly has become something I will use all the time!
You can get tube of this cream from amazon.co.uk for around £3.99 (not including P&P) but I have seen this product lurking around 99p stores and Poundland so it's worth having a look in there if you have one near you.

I had already tried the Raspberry fragrance of Nair Pretty hair removing cream and loved it, so I was looking forward to trying the Soft Peach fragrance from the same range.
Generally me and hair removal creams do not get on - I've had disastrous results in the past, but find that Nair is one brand that does work for me. I must admit, I only use these products for the hair on my arms which is quite fine - but I prefer my arms to be smooth, despite my boyfriend's insistence that they're supposed to have hair on them (bet he wouldn't say that if I suddenly had hairy legs!). Speaking of legs, I tend to wax or epilate them, so don't need to use this sort of product for doing my legs, but for the purposes of this review I did test the product on my legs - read further on for the results!
The cream comes in a white tube with orange screw top lid and features a cute cartoon picture on the front. It's quite a fun looking tube, and looks to be aimed towards younger girls.
Using this cream is very simple. You simply smooth a thick, even layer of the peach coloured cream over your skin in the places you want to remove hair (It is suitable for legs, bikini and underarms). You don't actually rub it in, just leave it on there.
Now one of the worst things about using a hair removal cream (for me anyway) is the smell. The majority of creams on the market have a disgusting chemical scent. With the Nair Pretty Raspberry I found that this smell was masked by a lovely raspberry scent, so of course I expected this to have a lovely peach fragrance. In fact the tube even states it to be 'deliciously fragranced'. I was very disappointed then, to find that this absolutely stinks! There is not even a hint of peach fragrance as far as I can tell, just that awful chemical scent which is so familiar with these sorts of products. Even worse, was that the longer I had this on my skin, the more it started to smell like cat food. Absolutely vile, I was glad when I had to rinse it off!
It states to leave it on five minutes before testing to see if the hair has come off. You can do this, simply by rubbing a bit of the cream away. To be honest, I find it very difficult to tell if it's come off or not so I just take it off after the five minutes which is always long enough. If the hair doesn't come away easily you can leave it on for up to 10 minutes, but no longer. I personally use a wet wash cloth to remove it as it just seems easier that way.
I find that this gets rid of the hair on my arms brilliantly, leaving them feeling beautifully soft and smooth. There is absolutely no hair left and strangely the re-growth time seems a lot slower than when shaving.
I mentioned earlier in the review that I had also tested this on my legs. As I was between waxing, I decided to try this on just a small patch on my leg. The hair on my legs is darker and thicker than on my arms, and in fairness this did seem to struggle to remove it. When I wiped it off after the five minutes were up, most of the hair came away, however I was left with a sort of stubble (attractive!) as if I had shaved - it was as though it hadn't dissolved the whole hair, which was disappointing.
A 150ml tube of this costs £4.40 from Superdrug. One tube gave me enough cream to do my arms twice.
Overall, this was alright -it was effective at removing the fine, blonde hair from my arms, but the smell was awful. If you have particularly dark or thick hair I don't think I would recommend this, and personally I'll be sticking to the raspberry fragrance from now on - at least that one doesn't smell like cat food!
Nair has a whole line of hair removing products which is why the name "Nair" rhymes with "hair". I am not too much into shaving or using creams or lotions for hair removal purpose. Traditionally I have been using the method of waxing. Lately I felt that waxing was becoming a long and tedious procedure and thought of trying out a quicker method of using a cream.
After consulting a few friends I settled on this new fancy looking tube of cream with a soft peachish smell. I didn't have to go far ahead with using this product before I realized that it was a waste of money and ruining my skin. I paid nearly 4 pounds and a half for the 5-4 oz tube and threw the money down the drain.
The soft peach flavour was an awful smell and even though I followed the instructions carefully, my skin started burning as soon as I applied the lotion on.
The instructions asks to apply the cream like a layer on the area and leave it on for 5 minutes and then wash it off with a damp wash cloth. But it's almost impossible to leave the cream on the skin. When I actually tried to leave the cream for that long and washed it off, only a few hai came off and the rest just remained there like stubborn kids. I was in no mood to reapply the cream and leave it any longer. After a few days I noticed that the hair grew harder on the area where I had used this cream and I decided to discontinue the use immediately. I would never recommend the product to anyone unless you want to ruin your skin.
