    I was really skeptical about this product because it received so many bad reviews. However, I noticed that many people who reviewed it poorly were trying to use it on their eyebrows. I do not believe this is what this product is meant for!

    I used the "coarse hair" method and it worked great for me. I have very fair/sensitive skin and very dark, coarse hair on my lip and chin. I tried it on my lip and it worked! It took everything off! It also did not break me out and does not have the MOST revolting smell. Don't get me wrong...it still smells a bit but not as toxic as other creams.

    I used it two days ago and still no regrowth. I am the type of person who can't wax and almost everything breaks me out. This is worth the money for me.

    I read good stuff about this in Allure magazine. They said adding the protective balm really protects the skin, plus this stuff actually works for medium to coarse hair.

    Depilatories have never worked for me, and they also gave me irritation or a breakout, in addition to stinking. I had high hopes for this stuff since it's for coarse hair. The first time, I thought I just used too much balm. (It didn't work) So, I tried again. It removed a few FINE hairs, but it didn't remove the coarse ones which are a problem!! I don't want to wax cause I'd have to literally grow a moustache first. And mine is dark and coarse. (Tried one home wax kit for facial hair, and I ended up returning THAT too. Wax didn't come out with the right consistency, and I followed directions to the letter)

    Depilatories don't seem to work for me, so I'm back to shaving like a man! Also a pain of telling you to do the patch test before EACH use. I didn't do this, but although I had no reaction on the arm patch test, I had irritation on my upper lip. Plus, you have to wait 3 days between uses, and my moustache starts growing back in just 2 days!

    The protective balm did lessen the irritation a little,(which is why I gave it 2 stars--it is a good concept) but I still had some, and it's no good if the product won't work anyway.

    Thankfully, the store let me return it. It's expensive, and it doesn't have many uses---just "12" according to the package--depending on how much hair you'd want to remove. I was using it on upper lip only.

      Comments about Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo Kit, Coarse Hair, 1 kit:

      After using Nair for MANY YEARS, I decided to try Olay's product...fine to medium...and it did a beautiful job! Nothing to touch up afterwards as the unwanted hair was all gone. It removes long as well as short hair thoroughly..no touch up with tweezers afterwards as there is NO hair left. Had it on for nine minutes and no skin irritation afterwards. I cannot praise this product enough and HIGHLY recommend it for anyone.

          Comments about Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo Kit, Coarse Hair, 1 kit:

          This is the only thing that removes the stash. The waxing leaves me with huge red bumps, the bleaching is worse. I have thinner hair though dark and sensitive skin. Assume 2X as long as the directions. It does wipe off the hair. NOW the downside; you have to do on a day you are not going anywhere as you may have a red mark on your upper lip. Expect the hair to grow back in and look like stubble, like you forget to shave that day.

              I used this product as instructed, leaving it on a little extra time, as I have coarse facial hair. When I removed the product, the facial hair was still there. Nothing had changed. It was a total waste of money.

                        NO STARS. Despite the fact that I have fairly fine hair, I saw what people said and thought I should purchase the coarse hair product because of my eyebrows, etc. I have used it twice, just to be sure, following the directions precisely. It removed some of the fine hair but not all and certainly not the coarse hair. Removing the "protective layer" was then extremely difficult. Also it says good for 12 uses but they clearly mean eyebrows, mustache, etc. are one use each. Please save your money. I was very disappointed because I wanted to save my skin and stop waxing. This won't do it.

                            I was excited to try this product because of reviews on the Today show. It did remove my upper lip hair well but the next day I had stubble. I never experienced this and have tried many products in the past. I gave it another try thinking that I used too much of the the balm. I was just as disappointed the second time. I would not recommend this product!

                              Checked this out on the Olay website; reviews were negative & positive. Decided to try, despite high cost. What can I say? Easy to use, does not smell bad, took only 8-10 minutes to use. Unfortunately,
                              IT DID NOT WORK AT ALL! Followed directions to the letter, I have med.dark hair on upper lip, cannot afford electrolysis, waxing hurts/doesn't work either. Feel like this is another waste of money. Will try again in a few days.
