Anne French Hair Removing Lotions have been around for a long time now. These revoltingly stinking lotions were pushed back with the arrival of Veet Hair Removal creams, which gave almost the same results as Anne French sans the stinky smell. I have been a Veet loyal since forever. I saw this roll-on version of Anne French Hair Removal Lotion and bought it because I thought it was convenient to be used while on a travel. Here’s my review on it:
Hair removing lotion with moisturiser for normal to dry skin (uh-oh). Makes your skin silky soft and smooth.
Contains thioglycolate. Never use the material on inflamed or broken skin or near eyes. Should this occur, wash with lukewarm water and rinse with boric acid solution (approximately 3%). If used for the first time, carry out the following “put-on” test. Put-On Test: Use a little hair remover over 5 cm of skin on inner elbow. If 24 hours later, the skin is normal, the material may be safely used. Keep out of reach of children.
Rs. 45 for 50 ml.
My Take on Anne French Roll-On Hair Removing Lotion:
You know, Anne French – the brand can add rose, jasmine, aloe vera, cherry blossom whatever they want, but they would never be able to get rid of the foul smell. This roll-on is quite user friendly.
The hair lotion comes in a tube with a plastic stopper that prevents the lotion from coming out. The mouth of the tube is covered with a plastic roller with a plastic plug. The stopper needs to be pulled out of the tube and then the roller fitted back before use.
Once that is done, the lotion flows on to the roller and I could spread it on to the area where the hair needed to be removed. I allowed it to stay for 5 to 7 minutes maximum and washed it off with lukewarm water. The area where I had applied the lotion became hair free and smooth.
I think this kind of packaging is hassle free. I did not need the spatula or any wipes for the whole process. If you are travelling, this will come in handy.
The only issue is the foul smell, but it won’t stay on the skin for long.
One needs to clean the roller and plug after use each time so that it remains hygienic and one can re-use the tube.
But before everything, I had done a patch test because I didn’t want to take any chances. There was no reaction and I went ahead with the hair removal process.
But even with this easy hair removing tool, I won’t let go of my Veet tubes, they are the best hair removing formulas in the market.
