Nair Hair Remover Sensitive Formula Gel Cream

Hello sweethearts,

Here is one more hair remover from my collection. I read a review about this brand on IMBB so I wanted to try this myself. I spotted this at the beauty shop and my Anne French kit that I bought was already over so I picked this one up to keep it to be on the safe side. Rather than getting those kits I decided to get a spray as I thought this would be more convenient.

Nair Hair Remover  Sensitive Formula Gel Cream

Price:

Rs. 230 for 155 grams

Product description:

Nair hair remover sensitive formula is designed for smooth radiant skin. It is for legs, arms, underarms and bikini area. Not for use on the face.

Directions for use:

To apply gel cream

• Dispense gel cream into palm of hand. Smooth on a thick even layer to cover hair. Do not rub in. Wash your hands immediately after application.
• Leave the gel cream for 3 minutes, then check a small area for hair removal. Total hair removal depends on hair thickness. If the hair does not wipe off easily after 3 minutes, leave the gel cream on a few minutes longer. Do not exceed 10 minutes of application.
To remove gel cream and hair
• Gently wipe off the gel cream and hair with a damp washcloth. Do not rub. Once all hair has been removed, rinse skin thoroughly with lukewarm water in the shower.
• Wipe off excess product from the dispensing nozzle
• Replace the cap when not in use

My take on Nair hair remover sensitive formula gel cream:

I initially thought of trying something different from those hair remover creams that come in a tube. This hair remover gel cream comes in a spray bottle that is blue in colour and is very travel friendly and the cap also doesn’t come off the bottle so no worry of leakage at all. The whole lot of instructions are given behind the bottle so you know what exactly to do. You just open the cap there you get a dispensing nozzle. I thought that this would be very convenient to use but it was not. When you have a spatula you can spread the cream very evenly and in this case firstly when you press the dispenser, a lot of quantity comes out which might not even be needed for 1 underarm and this cannot be even evenly distributed with the fingers. It may happen that there is more cream on some part and less on some. Then you will have to ruin your fingers and as I have long nails it goes inside and sits there. Then immediately instructed to wash hands and then cleaning the nails.

The cream is thick is consistency and easy to spread on the hands. The smell is refreshing as well as connects to the spring essence they mention. It does not smell like those typical hair removal creams. I kept it on for like 6-7 minutes even if they said 3 minutes. And I washed off my hands and legs with a sponge. But what I could see is there were still some hair on my hands and legs which had not been removed effectively. Some of the hair has become twisted and curly because they just got half the reaction of hair removal. Like that I had to reapply the cream and a lot of product was wasted. My hands and legs felt smooth and not at all dry. They did look radiant but you know that hair on the legs are quite thick as compared to the hands. In this case, it left small black hair from the roots which look like the ingrown hair and you don’t actually get a clean waxed feeling because you can see those small hair peeping out and I couldn’t even wax them because they were very small. Overall I would that it is a good one as if kept for 10 minutes but if you remove it less than this time then you will not get the desired results but I can say I have used better products than this one.

Cons of Nair Hair Remover Sensitive Formula Gel Cream :

-Nozzle gives out too much product.
-Availability.
-Fingers are to be ruined while applying this.
-Gets stuck inside my nails.
-Did not remove all the hair in 6-7 minutes even when it claimed just 3 minutes.
-Uneven distribution.
-Some hair were not at all removed and looked like ingrown hair.

Will I repurchase/recommend Nair Hair Remover Sensitive Formula Gel Cream?

No I don’t think so because there are many more products that are convenient to use like the Anne French kit that I reviewed and will not buy it again, I will just try finishing this up.

Actually Sowmya its like a blend of that creamy shave smell plus the spring essence… *happydance* you will get a little bit smell coz of the chemical thats put in to remove the smell … but this smells better than the other for sure *happydance* *happydance* *happydance*
