I haven't experimented with hair removal cream since I was a teenager so when I was offered Silky Sensations, the latest hair removal product from Nair, I was keen to try them after an eight year interval and see how things have changed.
Cream should really be my hair removal method of choice as I suffer from keratosis pilaris, (those annoying bumps you can get on your skin.) Whilst shaving from ankle to knee bares no problems, shaving my lower thighs aggravates the small bumps I have and makes them more prominent, not to mention painful and red. Hair removal cream seemed like the perfect solution to this problem.
Available in Sensitive and Normal formulas, the candy stripes make the cream look very appealing and I mistook them for body moisturisers when I first saw them. With Pomegranate and Kiwi labelled on the packaging, it all sounded very promising. Application is simple; apply to skin, leave for 3 minutes and remove with a wash cloth. I was so hoping to smell the delights of fruit when I used this cream, but unfortunately, it smells how all hair removal creams smell - strong and chemical.
Smell aside, the cream performs amazingly well. Silky Sensations is a very apt name for this product. My legs were left so incredibly soft and smooth I couldn't quite believe it! It's also an effortless way of removing hair, it makes me ponder why I ever bothered with shaving which is such a laborious task - especially if you have long legs. Better yet, my skin wasn't irritated (and I didn't even use the Sensitive version) and it's hard to miss any hair as you can clearly see where you've applied the cream. Overall, I've been won over! I'll be ditching my razor in favour of creams from here on in.
