      - My experience and opinions.
      After a long lie at the beach it was finally time to get shaped up and ready for a great night out. As I got in the shower and stares at my dry razor-cut legs, I was tempted not to shave my legs atoll that night. I burst open my suitcase and scrabbled through my clothes to find something that would hide my hair legs. At 51 degrees I was exactly in the mood for wearing skinny-legged jeans. I tried all varieties of outfits to hide my montourus legs, but nothing was working. I went back into the shower and reached for my razor, until, I saw sitting at the bottom on the bathroom, A long, purple box which read "sensitive formula HAIR REMOVING CREAM". Could this be the new soultion?

      My sister wasn't there at the time, so It was safe to have a quick sample of the cream. Before I new it I had spread the cream all down my legs and I started waiting. I left it on for 10 minutes, then I experienced a slight burning sensation. I quickly looked for my razor. Until I saw on the box, "remove with the spectula". Then I saw a plastic, somewhat blade less razor, and I scraped all the cream off with what I hoped to be the spatula. I was amazed at how much hair had disappeared. Whilst there was still a thin layer of cream remaining on my legs, I gave it a quick, gentle, dry-shave. And there it was, my legs were as smooth and silky as they had ever been. So, when I returned from my holiday I decided to use it for myself, and I've never used shaving foam ever since.

      - intructions.

      1. Apply the cream in a think, even layer using the spatula provided. Do not rub in.

      2. After 5 minutes test a small area. If the hair does not come away easily, wait a few minutes longer and test again. DO NOT LEAVE ON FOR MORE THAN 10 MINUTES IN TOTAL.

      3. Gently remove the cream with the spatula and rinse the skin thoroughly in lukewarm water. Do not rub or use soap. Pat skin with a dry towel.

      - Care and safety advice.

      Always carry out a patch test before use, on a small part of the area where hair is to be removed. If after 24 hours the skin is normal, proced with he full application. Please read the instructions before use and follow carefully. Contains thioglycolate. If you have experienced an adverse reaction to thioglycolate, do not use this cream. Do not use a deodorant for 24 hours after underarm hair removal. Do not use on irritated, inflamed, or broken skin. If you feel smarting or tingling at any time during use, rinse of immediately with cold water. Aviod contact with eyes. In event if contact with eyes, rinse immediatly with plenty od water and seek medical advice. Contacts alkali. Keep out the reach of children. Hair removers can be used anywhere except around eyes, nose, ears, on breast nipples, perianal or vaginal/genital areas. Store at room temperature.

      - Pricing and purchase

      I bought my bottle for £2.50 in Superdrug, as it is a Superdrug product, this is probably the only place youll find it.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Okay…so we are all adults here and guys it’s time to acknowledge that girls not only have periods but also have to deal with the intrepid task of removing unwanted hair from places where the sun doesn’t usual shine. So ladies…. to avoid those hairy canary moments may I recommend ‘Superdrugs Hair Removal Cream’. It can be a bit of a ‘Bridgett Jones’ moment for ladies who are considering sex with a new partner for the first time…. to groom or not to groom that is the question. But the thing is, once you start it can be a hardy task to maintain that perfect muff…so here are a few handy tips. ********************************* Shaving – the quick, easy and cheapest option by far. The draw back is however that the blade never quite seems to give that longer lasting effect that you may desire and you can end up with 12 o’clock shadows, razor bumps and ingrown hairs by abusing this system. Strip Wax – obviously created by some sadist. Waxing- sounds good if you have the money and are brave enough to reveal ‘Miss Mary’ to the world of salon assistants…. ********************************* The answer…give hair removal cream a bash. It last longer than shaving, can be a bit messy but with a little perseverance can also be very rewarding. Superdrug provide one of the best smelling products on the market for a very reasonable price that comes in two different sizes (which I like to affectionately term the flatmate super size share pack and the staying at the boyfriends for a few days slip it in your bag pack). Superdrug have created their very own home brand that comes in a variety of flava’s (so to speak) Normal, Citrus & Sensitive and at a very competitive price: Superdrug: Normal/Citrus 50ml £1.49 100ml £2.49 Sensitive 50ml £1.69 100ml £2.99 Imma
        c: Normal 100ml £4.15 50ml £2.55 Nair: Normal 150ml £4.09 **************************************** Each Superdrug Hair Removal Cream packet comes with a spatula for easy application of the product, which helps you to smooth it on (the thicker the better by the way) and some instructions and guideline on use. Please take the time to have a quick read if you are a first time user of this product, then have a think about these few tips below. So for a successful and gratifying experience…give this a go. 1. Leave the cream on for a few minutes longer than the recommended time to help say goodbye to those more stubborn hairs. 2. Use the plastic applicator to scrap of the bulk of the cream, but then employ circular motions working in small areas at a time. This will loosen the hairs from the roots and help prevent the sudden re-growth of the dreaded stubble. 3. Use a slightly warm/hot damp flannel in circular motions as well to reinforce the message. 4. Always wash of well and moisturise for that silky soft finish. 5. Wherever possible, allow the re-growth to reach a decent length before repeating the process. The longer the hair, the better the finish (1cm is good if you can be patient). 6. And finally…try and share the finished effect for maximum satisfaction. ************************************** Having a nice tidy muff is a bit like a red flag to a bull. It can give you extra confidence in expressing yourself sexually and you may be tempted to get it on to show it off (so to speak). But even if your not ready to share it with someone, give it a go and I guarantee that by just knowing that your groomed for action, you’ll get that little twinkle in your eye all the same. Now guys, if you are prepared to play, then you should take an interest in maintenance. So for all you couple who are comfortable in showering toge
        ther, why not have a go at expanding your repertory to styling…you may be pleasantly surprised. PS…Go to the loo before you begin, as it can get a bit messy if your caught short mid-muffing. By the way….Superdrug have also come out with a Bikini Cream. Don’t be fooled girls, it’s double the price (£4.09 50ml) and no doubt does the same job as the regular stuff.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          The Superdrug facial hair removing cream is great. It works well on any part of the face. Its fast and easy. And it does not hurt. You all so get soothing finishing balm and a spatula. All you have to do is: Put the facial hair removing cream on to the unwanted hair. Leave for a few minutes and wash off. Than put the soothing finishing balm on and its done. The facial hair removing cream is enriched with sweet almond oil which helps leave your skin soft, smooth and supple. And the finishing balm soothes and helps restore your skin's natural ph balance. There are lots of hair removing produts on the market and i think this is one of the best i have tried so far. It great vaule for money it's prived between £2-4.

            i was wary for the first time i used this. i used to use branded products and although i alway bought sensitive skin versions i often found that i would get slight rashes from using the products. i thought at first that by buying 'own brands' might actually be worse. i was very suprised by the results - no rashes. the lotion is easy to apply but be careful. i have found that because it is not as thick as some lotions i have used previously, it sometimes slides of the spatula (not supplied) and falls onto my bathroom floor. the lotion works well. it removes unwanted hair for about a week. it also has a good moisturiser and a nice smell.

              I bought this product as I always seem to get razer rash when shaving. I usually use Immac but this was so cheap (£1.69 - about half the price of Immac) that I thought I'd give it a go. The product really does smell - that really bitter smell that lingers for ages and after leaving the cream on my skin for 15 minutes (10 is the supposed max) the cream still had not worked and I had patches of hair left all over my legs. I think this product is a fine example of the old saying "you get what you pay for" I certainly won't be doing any more false budgeting with this product.

              Disadvantages

              Im usually a great fan of Superdrug products and i think they are great value but today i purchased a tube of thier hair removing lotion, I have to admit I bought it as it was the chepest at £1.99 per tube and it seemed like a bargain. It states on the tube that it has cocoa butter with vitamin E for soft smooth velvety legs.... well i'd like to know where they hid it. Yes it is very quick to work and it only takes about 5-10 minutes but the first thing you notice is the smell it is so revolting its unbeleivable. It has that horriable old smell that used to come with hair removers in the olden days when they were a fairly new thing .I would have thought that in this day and age that the manufacturers would be able to come up with a better more user friendly product. It really does make your eyes water ,i think in future I'll pay a bit more and get a better brand.
