    I use this product once every ten days, with a plastic applicator/scraper that came with another exfoliating product. I save the used product in a plastic storage container and re-use it twice before throwing it away-- works great. It's important to leave it on no longer than ten minutes. I use an aloe-based lotion after using the product and my legs look and feel great. I just LOVE this product.

    I used Nair for the first time last week before a trip to the beach. I'm still not sure if it's better and/or easier than shaving - there are lots of pros and cons to each. So I will just share my experience and let you be the judge.

    I used the cream on my legs (fine, blond hair) and my underarms and bikini area (darker, coarser hair). I never have problems with sensitive skin, so I decided to leave it on for the full ten minutes. It felt a little warm while I was waiting. The scent was pretty bad (it smells like one of those old-school perms), but tolerable. After ten minutes, I hopped in the shower and expected to rinse the hair away. It wasn't quite that easy. I had to use a washcloth - and in coarser areas I had to use a mesh sponge - to scrub the hair away. But it did come off, with the exception of one little quarter-sized patch on my leg that I didn't notice until later (not sure what happened there). I had one place of redness and irritation on my right underarm - I think it was a combination of the chemicals in the Nair and too-hard scrubbing on my part. It went away in about 24 hours.

    The smell was very faintly noticeable for the rest of the day, and after another shower that night I couldn't smell it at all anymore. At the beach, I noticed that my skin was definitely smoother on day 2 than it would have been if I'd shaved. It was the third day before I could feel any hair coming back, the fourth day before I could see any hair, and the fifth or sixth day before I really needed to repeat. This alone is the main reason I'm considering switching for good. I wonder if repeated use will make hair come back slower...

    I think waxing is the best option, of course, but it's inconvenient to do it yourself and can be expensive if you're doing your legs, bikini, and underarms. I think Nair is an alternative that I'll continue to use in the future. I should note that I used the gentle gel-cream formula and it did not work at all, so this review just applies to this particular product. Good luck!

        I wouldn't waste your money on this product. I'm not actually sure if it works well removing hair, because the stench was so strong I couldn't leave it on for more than 2 minutes. I first tested it on my underarms but the scent almost made me throw-up. I STILL smell it everywhere I go. I would not recommend this!!!

            This is the WORST PRODUCT I HAVE EVER USED. If you have super sensitive skin like me, DO NOT GET NAIR!!! I only put it on for 3 minutes on my legs and underarms, it started to burn like holy HELL so I rinsed and wiped it off, and guess what? My legs and underarms started bleeding, and I have unsightly welts because of this dumb depilatory too. FANTASTIC! I wish I could give it 0 stars. It deserves NOTHING

                I am very pleased with this product, it works well, and it is easily removed. I have been using this product for over a year now, and it always does what it is supposed to do, it leaves my legs and underarms very smooth.

                Not only did this product only remove about half the hair; even when I followed the exact directions AND left it on for the maximum time allowed. Just doing your legs uses almost half the bottle.

                This product completely removed the hairs from my legs. I did not have to leave it on the maximum time to achieve this. It has a low odor. Now if I could just find one that works on my neck and face as well as this one works for my legs.

                This just doesn't work. I put it on the maximum time, as directed - and my legs are still prickly. It seemed to remove the softer, longer lengths but left the root of those longer hairs - and all others. I'm much smoother with shaving.

                Worse hair remover I've ever used. It left patches of hair and it made me bleed terribly. I have used Nair in the past and I never had a reaction like that.

                Very nice! It really did take only 3 minutes and the scent is actually not as strong as some other products. Having used both Nair and other creams before, I was kind of expecting that strong, lingering smell again but it was lighter. I just rinsed off in the shower, slathered myself with shower gel and no more smell!
