Advantages: Removes hair
Disadvantages: Smell, made skin sore and red
I usually wax my legs but seeing as the weather is freezing I am mainly wearing jeans and leggings at the minute and so I've just been shaving once a week.
I had some of this hair removal cream in the bottom of my make-up drawer as my friend had left it at mine a few weeks ago so I decided to use it up. As instructed on the tube I did a patch test the day before and after 24hrs had no bad reaction to it. I used it last night after I'd had a bath. It was easy to use and I simpy spread a thick layer of it all over my legs and left it on for around six minutes.
The cream is like a lotion sort of texture and it is white and quite thick. It's a littlle greasy but it spread over my skin well. I needed a few large blobs to cover both of my legs and the cream was easy to dispense as it comes in a squeezy tube. The first thing that I didn't like about this was the smell - it smells like garlic, in my opinion and very chemical-like - the smell actually made me feel quite sick to be honest!!
Around six minutes after applying the cream my legs felt quite irritated and sore, like someone was sticking pins in them or something. I washed it off straight away and was pleased to see that my legs were hairless, although there were a few small strands left so I did need to give my legs a quick shave which was actually quite painful as the cream had left my skin feeling like it was burning. After shaving my legs they weren't too red and despite the cream causing me some minor discomfort I was pretty pleased with the results and my legs felt nice and smooth.
This morning though I woke up in pain and looked down to see lots of red scabby looking blotches all over my legs, especially on my knees. It resembled the stubble rash that my boyfriend sometimes gets after shaving and it was soooo ugly, lol. Luckily it has calmed down now and it isn't painful any more, but I am confused as to why my skin reacted like this when I did the patch test correctly.
A 200ml tube of this retails at around £5.00 for anyone wondering but I wouldn't recommend it. It left my skin sore and red despite the fact that I did the patch test and it smells gross too. Yes it removes hair, but I'd much rather shave or wax than use this again.
Summary: Horrible stuff.
