Not suitable for sensitive skin
I did a patch test on a small part of my leg as recommended. No pain or burning during application of wait time. The smell was good compared to other similar products. I left the cream on for the 5 minutes and checked to see if it was working. Hair was coming off so I removed the cream in the minimum time recommended. Rash began to appeared all over test patch and the burning sensation lasts near 24 hours.
A side from the red angry skin, my test patch is smooth and hair free. Very unfortunate but I am thankful I followed instructions and did a test first.
Not for sensitive skin. I left on for recommended time and it did not remove hair and also burnt my shin.
Do not use this product if you have sensitive skin. It burns and I actually lost some skin on a patch on my leg.
This did nothing
The cream didn't work at all and it's just a waste of time and money. I would not recommend this product to anyone. The brand itself has constantly disappointed me with their terrible formulas and though I have tried only a few of their products, I think that this brand is a farce for making me pay for a product that doesn't do as described.
Waste of money
I was very disappointed with this wax. It was slow to heat up and despite following the instructions exactly, this wax did not work. It became brittle and broke, or when I managed to pull it off in a strip, it failed to remove 95% of the leg hair. Now I have to go on holiday with dreadfully hairy legs. That will teach me to leave it to the last minute to try a new product. Save your time and money and skip this product.
Worst thing ever. I'd sue them.
I have sensitive skin. I did the patch test yesterday on my chin and it was fine. An hour ago I applied the cream to my whole face and it started burning and stinging really bad. I took it off straight away and the water stung my face. Now it's really sore and red and painfully and ugly. I literally do not recommend this to anyone! I'm so disappointed and I even cried about it.
Amazing results and really positive experience!!
Got a facial wax a few weeks ago and naturally the hair grew back. Instead of going and waxing again I thought I would give nair a go. Wow. After applying it for 3 minutes on patches of my skin where hair was visible, I used a damp cloth to remove the cream and the hair just came off so easily. I am so happy with this product and will DEFINITELY use and recommend it. Not to mention my skin is feeling amazing and smooth!
Red and burning!!!
Used this thirty minutes ago now and even after doing good a patch test to ensure I wouldn't have an adverse reaction, my lip feels like it's on fire! I left it on for four minutes total (three minutes didn't remove any hair) and followed all instructions to the letter. I don't appreciate Nair for advertising this as a product for 'sensitive' skin given that it has left me with a swollen, red, burning upper lip - I gave it 2 stars because it does remove the hair. I know tomorrow I will wake up with little pimples across my upper lip, I'll write an update tomorrow.
Not very effective, bad for sensitive skin
Used this on my neck and it was fine however even after soaking hair beforehand AND leaving the cream on for longer than suggested it still didn't remove the hair properly.
A few weeks later I used it on my face. After a fine patch test on my cheek I applied it to the sides of my face and upper lip. Had to wash it off within 3 minutes because of how badly it was burning me. I now have blisters and redness on my face, and the hair is still there!
Been looking for a solution on my hairy legs. just recently my officemate recommended me this product since his brother has been using it for sometime. so i asked him to buy one for me. when i applied it on the first time ( small amount to check if i have some allergic reaction, thank God i dont have) i was amazed how the hair was removed. then i applied it for the second time on half of my leg and after 10mins. OMG, it was perfect. it doesnt leave any rashes and my skin was smooth.
Chronic Eczema Sufferer & this has been great!
Admittedly I only used this for the first time tonight, I have been nervous to try any hair removal creams having had chronic eczema (at times requiring hospitalisation & 10 months of the year steroid treatment). I've also had some reactions to bleaching products and other hair removal creams from various other brands.
I can confidently report that at this stage I have had a brilliant experience, tried to remove after 3 minutes yet needed more time, after 8 minutes I removed it all, no negative side affects on my eczema and as far as I can see there has been no chemical burns.
Will comment tomorrow if anything changes however I am beyond stoked that I have been able to find a product (so far) that has not negatively effected my eczema!

A must try product!
I'm a guy and facial hair just annoys me. I dont want to shave it off because it will grow thicker and faster. So, I tried waxing but it was so painful I had to stop. I then asked some of my girl friends if they use hair removal cream for their face and one of my girl friends recommended this product. I bought it and it was pretty cheap ($6 AUD) compare to the waxing strips ($12 AUD).
I used it the night that I bought it and left it on my face for 10 mins. The smell of the cream is not strong and it kinda smell good to be honest. The 'spatu...la' is also helpful for spreading the cream on your face instead of using hands, therefore making things cleanier and faster. After 10 mins, I washed it off and some of the hairs were gone but there were still a small amount of it on my face. Otherwise, it is still a good hair removal cream and I definitely see myself using it in the future.
Best cream for body anyone with sensitive skin
I really like this product the other brands give me a chemical burn
Read instructions and follow them wash off after 10 mins. Not much smell and I didn't get a skin reaction to the cream all good in my book.
Leaves skin feeling great no chemical burn smells better then the others
Missed a few hairs had to leave on slightly longer then 10 mins but i wouldn't recommend that
Questions & Answers
I'm a guy and I usually shave my legs with a shaver. will nair on my legs keep the hair away longer than shaving. is it safe to use?
Hair removal cream only removes the hair that's above the surface of the skin- the same as shaving. The hair will grow back just as fast. If you're looking to go longer between hair removal you will need to remove the hairs from their roots, you can do this by waxing or epilating. And for permenant results, laser hair removal is required. I hope this helps!
