Here’s a less glamorous topic for you today, but nonetheless one that most of us ladies will want to know about. Hair removal isn’t usually something we talk about openly, yet there’s so many different options. Most of the time I just use my Venus razors, it’s quick and convenient and easy to do when you’re having a shower or bath anyway. The only problem with shaving is that it is irritating to the skin and hair grows back so quickly and can often be irritating to the skin too.
So, when I’m after a longer lasting hair removal method I go for hair removal cream, I’m too chicken to wax. Can’t afford to wax professionally and my experience of waxing at home has been messy and painful, I’m just not that dedicated to hair removal to deal with the fussing.
This time I decided to give a different brand a go and try out Nads (yes, I know that name is funny) Moisturising Hair Removal Crème. This product is the usual format, you smooth onto the skin, wait an allocated amount of time and remove. The Nads Hair Removal crème is applied with your hands, which is quite messy, so you might want to have a sink full of water at the ready for hand rinsing. It’s pretty difficult to dispense the product from the bottle when you’ve got crème everywhere.
The product consistency is thick and smooth, therefore pleasant and easy to apply by hand, as with most hair removal creams it does have a weird smell, but I don’t think that’s something you can get around. The bottle recommends waiting a maximum of 10 minutes and for me, the maximum time is required, so I’d recommend the same for most people. You then remove the cream using the included sponge. The sponge has a soft side for removing and a rough exfoliating side, which is a nice feature, however, it’s quite small so a bit time consuming to use, I prefer the scraper that comes with other products personally.
Anyway, it’s a decent product for a hair removal cream, but for me I think I’m going to still stick to shaving because I’m lazy and it works for me. Being blonde, I’m lucky that hair isn’t often very noticeable so I can get away without constant hair removal. Now I’m thinking I’m at risk of TMI, so I’m going to stop there.
What’s your hair removal method of choice?
Have you tried anything from Nads?
