I decided to buy Nair Pretty Naturals Hair Removal Cream because it was Raspberry scented and I thought it would be a nice change from smelly hair removal creams. I like to use hair removal creams because I tend cut myself a lot when I shave, and also because I find that the more I use these creams, the thinner my hair grows back.
How To Use
This cream is very easy to use, you simply smear a layer over your legs, covering any hairs completely and then clean it off between 5 and 10 minutes after applying, I usually wait the whole 10 minutes as I find that when I test it after 5 minutes that the hairs aren't ready to rub away yet.
I find that after about 10 minutes of having this cream on that most of the hairs on my legs are easily whipped away, the few that stay behind are normally the thicker, courser hairs and I usually have to shave them off when I am done. Overall though the most of my legs are hair free after using this cream and I am quite pleased with its performance.
I love how this cream makes your legs feel, they are always lovely and smooth as there is extra moisturisers and oils added to this cream to make it leave your legs lovely and soft.
This cream is has a raspberry scent added to it to make it more appealing than other, smellier hair removal creams. I can't really say I like the smell of this cream though as I think that it still has that hair removal cream smell to it and that this is hardy masked by the raspberry scent. It however isn't the worst hair removal cream I have smelt.
Price and Availability
You can buy this hair removal cream in Superdrug for around £2 a tube, this isn't too badly priced as a tube lasts me about 4 uses if I am only using it on my legs, so it works out 50p a time.
Overall I think that this is an OK hair removal cream, it doesn't smell as good as I was expecting, but it did take away most of the hairs on my legs. I think I would only buy this again if the Veet brand was not available, however overall I would give this product 3 out of 5 stars.

I saw this cream being sold well below RRP, due to damaged packaging. I don't think I would have normally bought it because the childish graphics are a bit of a put off.
I really like that this cream comes with much less packaging than many others on the market. It also doesn't waste plastic on the funny spatula thing (every girl has about 5 in her bathroom!) The nice, chunky bottle is actually much easier to use than the smaller, fiddlier grown-up versions.
I don't know about smelling nice. This cream smells mostly of ammonia. It is available in loads of different scents. I've tried several of them and they all smell of ammonia, but some of them are glittery, and they're all fantastic colours.
This cream works really well. I have sensitive skin and this never itches or irritates me at all. It's suitable for legs, underarms and bikini line. The formula is nice and fast acting, and is done in the time it says on the packet, unlike most hair removal creams. The formula does feel a bit sticker than others on the market, so it might take a little bit of getting used to. As soon as it's done developing you wash it off in the shower, rub yours legs down with a wet cloth and done! My skin always feels fantastically soft and smooth afterwards. It does dry up a little bit after a few hours though if I don't put any body butter or anything on.
Overall, I think this is my favourite hair removal cream. It's clean, effective and kind to your skin.
It does smell (and look) very pretty, which is not something you can say about most related items. The pink cream has a mild grainy texture that helps with spreading it evenly and the illusion that it is working(like the placebo effect of bubbles in shampoo). Do not under any circumstances rub into your skin, just smooth it over and leave on the surface.
For large areas like your legs, my personal opinion is that it is best done in patches to avoid stubble or burns. However keep in mind that it will take longer.
Take note: Please test the product on a small area before using it, and wait 24 hours to watch for adverse reactions. They advise you do it every time, just in case your body has changed but i find this unnecessary for my own.
You leave the cream on your skin for about 4-10(max) minutes. The most difficult thing in using this product is judging the right about of time for your own body. Take caution when removing it too soon or you'll end up with stubble, but keep in mind that too long will result in a chemical burn. Err on the side of caution(maybe 6mins to start) until you discover it; chemical burns are quite unpleasant and can last up to 2 weeks.
Some packages provide a personal loofah to help with the removal, but a soft cloth does the trick without the abrasive texture. Dampen it with warm water first, and never use soap or any other product to remove.
My hair grows back a little slower than shaving(you are still cutting it off at the surface) but some of my friends find this lasts longer.
I always find whilst on holiday or during the summer months the hair on my legs re-grows very quickly. I am not really a fan of shaving as you are not supposed to expose your skin to UV rays for upto 24 hours after shaving or waxing and I often find my skin gets irritated. Also I think it spoils my tan as it takes off layers of skin when you shave and you always run the risk of cutting yourself. So Nair hair removal cream is perfect.
The cream is suitable for hair removal from your legs, bikini area and under arms, and I have tried this on both my legs and bikini area. It is really quick too. You simply smooth a thick layer of the cream over the hairy area, leave for around 10 minutes, then rinse. The only downside is that you have to be careful where you sit or what you do otherwise you may find you get this stuff everywhere. I find on my legs this cream is very effective and I am immediately left with silky smooth legs. However, I find this cream is not so effective on the bikini area especially if the hairs are very minimal.
The cream costs around £4.99 for a tube. Since I only use this product in summer or on holidays it is hard to give an accurate timescale of how long this product lasts. If used on a regular basis, I would estimate around 5-6 uses would come from a tube As good as this product is I am not completely wowed by it enough to switch from waxing, but it is a must if I am off on holiday and if like me you hate holiday stubble then I suggest you give it a go.
Im always on the look out for quick and easy hair removal products, now Im more of a razor kinda girl but I always find shaving doesnt last very long! So when I went shopping yesterday and saw this Nair product in my local 99p store I thought it might be worth a try. It caught my eye because on the front it says that it has a mild rasberry scent and after using quite a few hair removal creams that have smelt well not great I thought how nice it would be to have a pretty scented one! But as I have been so many times before I have been left disappointed! Im so glad I didnt pay full price for this because I would have been really annoyed but why was I so let down?
This prodyct is definatley eye catching because of its bright and light pink colours specifically aimed at women it will definatley beg a look if your just walking past whilst doing your shopping. It has the product name clearly on the front and even some insructions on how to use (but that will come later). Id say the packaging is very pretty and looks like the product inside will be just as great, but sadly that is not the case!!
* I WOULD RECOMMEND WEARING GLOVES WHILST APPLYING BECAUSE THE SMELL WILL TRANSFER TO YOUR HANDS!!*
1. Put on gloves and squeeze a large amount of the product onto the glove.
2. Try to evenly apply the product to each leg WITHOUT rubbing into the skin!!
3. Wait for around 4 minutes for the cream to take full effect then try and wipe off a small amount of the cream to test if it has worked.
4. It hasnt worked leave for another 2 minutes and then wash of with a warm flannel or cloth.
My Opinion + Did It Work?
For me it didnt work, which is why I was so disappointed! It didnt get rid of any hair at all even though I left it on for around 10 minutes! I think with this product you have to have to leave your leg hair grow VERY long before this cream will take any effect at all! However it did leave my legs feeling pretty soft which suprised me, as if they had just been moisturised and that was a major plus side! Which brings me onto THE SMELL! When first opened the lid I could smell a faint whiff of rasberry but when I was applying it to my legs I was horrified to smell that stench of like rotting fish guts! And nowI have had a shower and repeat washed my legs and I can somehow still smell it! So not good if your going anywhere after using this! I dont recommend at all!! 1/5 Dooyoo stars......!
I dread to think how many hours I waste looking for hair removal products while I am in Boots. Now the easiest option for me would be to just shave my legs - which I quite often do. But sometimes my legs just need a break and a chance to hydrate!
This is why I turned to Nair Pretty Hair Removal Cream (Soft Raspberry).
I have to admit I become pretty baffled when I stand in Boots looking at hair removal products, they all look the same to me and claim to do very similar things.
However the Nair Pretty Hair Removal Cream immediately stood out to me - mainly due to the packaging. The packaging is bright, colourful and very girly. The tube was distinctive in a pink and white packaging (such a difference to all the others!).
The tube I purchased was a 150ml tube, the tube stands on its end with a large pink screw on top. When you remove the plastic lid, there is a small hole for the hair removal cream to come out of.
Although it was the girly colours on the packaging that initially prompted me to take a closer look at this item, when I saw that it was a raspberry fragranced cream I was sold.
The cream is easy to squeeze out and the consistency of it is much the same as any other hair removal cream I have used. However the main difference is that it doesn't have the same awful smell that other hair removal creams do. Whilst the cream doesn't smell of 'real' raspberries and certainly doesn't smell good enough to eat, it is certainly an improvement on previous lingering smells I am used to when using hair removal cream.
It is easy to apply (if not slightly messy!). You are told to apply a thick layer without rubbing it in. One issue I did find when removing the cream though is that just washing it off is not enough to remove the hairs. I always use a plastic razor (that I got with another hair removal product) to remove the cream and thus remove all the hairs.
The cream is suitable for use on legs, bikini and underarms. It is recommended on the packet that you leave the cream on for four minutes, however you can leave it on for up to ten minutes. I have personally found that the ideal time is around eight minutes - but obviously it depends how stubborn your hair is!!
Whilst I cant say the results last a great deal longer than any other hair removal creams I have used, it is certainly longer lasting than shaving. It leaves my legs feeling lovely and smooth for up to three days longer than they would be with shaving, and it gives my legs chance to recover!
I paid £4.99 for a 150ml tube from Boots. Whilst this might seem a bit on the pricey side, the tube does last for several applications.
Nair Pretty Hair Removal Cream comes in Soft Raspberry and also Soft Peach (both 5.4 oz) retailing at about £4.99 from popular chemists! I have used Nair dipilatory cream before, but I found the smell to be chemically and overpowering, not really a nice experience!
I wanted to try these as the packet says "Juicy and Delicious Scent", I was a little dubious but I thought that I'd give it a go! The packaging was pink and had a lady doing yoga moves - so I thought this is going to be a relaxed and chillin' experience?! Oh how wrong was I?
The directions are smooth a thick layer onto your skin and leave for 5mins, test a little area, but do not exceed 10mins in total. The smell was the same chemically smell but with a strange whiff of fruit! Yuk! Being a woman, I have learnt that there is no gain without pain, so I waited the ten minutes with the toxic fruit smell trying to keep a smile on my face.
Ten minutes past and I popped in the shower and washed off the cream. I was left with smooth patches along with some stubble. My skin felt quite sore also. I was really dissappointed!
I didn't want to leave the cream on for over 10mins as that is not reccommended. Perhaps this cream is just not strong enough to remove all the hair? It is not worth £4.99 in my opinion.
I once again made my usual trip to the hair removal section of my local chemist. I had tried it all! Waxing (too time consuming and painful!) shaving (the hair grew back thicker) and the Nair Pretty Hair Kiwi and lechee spray (very smelly and more expensive than the cream) When I first opened the bottle all I could think was eww! The smell was sickening and indescribable. The hair removal cream had easy instructions to follow and use. I could feel a tingling as the cream worked and a little bit of stinging. When it came time to washing it off it was a little hard, as the packet said: do not rub. After a while it came off. I think it took about 15 minutes in total. It worked well as a hair removal cream though, but only lasted a tiny bit longer than shaving. I would recommend using this product if you don't want to wax or shave but I found the spray much easier to use. If, like me you have dark hair and need to do the tops of your legs the product does not have many uses! I strongly recommend mosteriser as soon as you have finished as this product really dries out your legs!!!
I bought 150ml of Nair Pretty Hair Removal Cream in Soft Raspberry for £4.99 in Boots.
I had previously been using individual sachets of Nair but found they had a really bad smell so when I saw one with a fruity smell, i jumped at the chance to try it!
I smelt it before application and it did smell sweet and fruity, however, this smell soon disappeared and the old smell was back! I cannot describe how bad this smell is, it is like dog poo or something! And even after showering etc the smell still remains! But it does work well as a hair removal cream, and really softens your skin.
I have read other reviews that do not have a problem with the smell, so maybe it is just me, but my friend has it too and she thinks the smell is bad aswell.
It is worth spending £5 on Veet removal cream rather than Nair
I recently wrote about Boots hair removal spray, which I was surprised to find worked, as I hadn't ever found a hair removal cream/spray that had worked on me before. I went back to get another can, but while I was there I spotted Nair Pretty Hair Removal Cream. Having bright pink and very girly packaging, it stood out from the other predominantly white, green and blue products available, and was also on special offer. On closer inspection, I noticed that it was also Raspberry fragranced, and this pretty much sold it for me, because I hate the usual smell of hair removal creams which are usually very strong and horrible.
~About the product~
This is a cream designed to remove body hair. It is fragranced with raspberry and has added moisturisers to leave skin softer for longer. It is dermotologically tested and can be used on legs, bikini and underarms. The product also comes in a Peach fragrance according to the Nair website, although I didn't spot that in Boots, but will look out for it next time.
As I said, it was the packaging which attracted me to this product in the first place. It comes in a tube, with a fabulous bright pink lid. There is lots of pink colouring on the tube, as well as a sort of cartoon picture of a girl doing yoga!? The packaging lives up to the product name - it's simply pretty. There are step by step instructions on the back of the tube, as well as little pictures too.
To use, you must smooth a thick, even layer of cream over the area of hair you want to remove, but do not rub it in. When I squeezed the product out, I was pleased to see that it was pink! Unfortunately, it's not quite the same bright pink as the lid of the tube - more a dusky colour, but pink is pink! It's true that it does have a raspberry fragrance, although the raspberry scent isn't very strong. You can still detect that tell-tale chemical smell, but with the raspberry covering it, it's not too bad, and certainly is one of the nicest smelling hair removal products I have ever used.
I have quite sensitive skin, and was a little bit worried as my skin seemed to be tingling quite a bit while I was using this product. I found that once I removed it the tingling stopped, and my skin felt OK again.
You need to leave the cream on for 4 minutes, and then test by removing a small amount. If the hair comes away, you can remove it, if not, leave a few more minutes, but do not exceed 10 minutes. I found that 4 minutes was sufficient, and I didn't need to wait any longer.
To remove the product they suggest using a wet was cloth to get rid of the cream and then rinse the whole area with plain water - no soap. Oh, and remember to stick the flannel in the wash, in case you or someone else uses it and ends up with no eyebrows!
This was excellent. It got rid of all the hair and not only that, but my skin felt lovely and soft afterwards. I was really pleased with the results. It does say on the tube that the results last longer than shaving, and it could be right, as I used it four days ago now, and there still doesn't seem to be any regrowth.
I bought this when it was on special offer in Boots but can't be certain how much I paid for it, but I'm sure it was not more than £5. I believe that this is a relatively new product and is not yet listed on the Boots website, but I have found it online at www.blushingbuyer.com for £4.99. If I remember I will update the review with the correct price once I've discovered what it is!
Well, needless to say, I absolutely love this stuff. I would definitely say that it is the best hair removal cream I have ever used. If you want to use a cream instead of shaving or waxing, but hate the smell, I would definitely recommend this. It's also very quick and effective to use. Oh, and it's pink!
