Nair is one of the best known brands in the beauty world and I thought it was about time I looked at what they had to offer us in the struggle with keeping our skin hair free.
The Nair hair removal products range mainly consists of hair removal creams and lotions (for which they are best known) and products for waxing. In each of these product areas Nair are constantly innovating and making improvements large and small. Even if it is just an easier application method, a better fragrance or clearer packaging it helps improve the hair removal experience which quite honestly could do with some help! It is no one’s way to spend a great afternoon (even a wet one).
All Nair hair remover lotions and creams work on the basis of a strong chemical breaking down the components of the hair and dissolving it slightly below the skin surface. Success depends on how your skin and hair react to the strength of chemicals in the product. If the chemical is too strong for your skin, it may become sore. If the chemical is not strong enough for your hair, it won’t dissolve it.
This accounts for the sometimes very different opinions and reviews that you get about products like this because it depends so much on the balance between your skin sensitivity and the strength of your hair and the actual strength of the product. I do know that if you don’t get on well with one formula, another may be just right for you. It may be a small thing like how your skin reacts to the fragrance or the softening agent added. So it’s worth persevering because most people find hair removal creams and lotions an easy option for fast and pain-free hair removal. Just don’t forget to do a patch test to make sure your skin does not react to the chemicals in the lotion.
Anyway, let’s see what Nair products have to offer. I have picked out some of the best selling lines to give you an idea of what to look out for on the drug store shelves (or you can order any of the hair removal products pictured online (and find out even more information and reviews) by clicking on the picture or the MORE INFO link in the description.
