Here's the thing about these products. A lot of people complain that they had a LOT of irritation and burning afterwards, even scarring and lesions. With these products, you CAN NOT RUB IT OFF really hard, hence the pain, you have to be pretty gentle (it takes a while to find the right way :) ). What I do is use a wet tissue and lightly rub it off. I've been using these products for years, but just recently tried the Sally Hansen's because well it was cheaper and you didn't need to leave it on as long as the brand I had at home (8 minutes! Yikes). It works well! And doesn't smell as bad as my other stuff, it smells like vanilla. I'd definitely recommend it!

I've been using facial depilatory (Nair Sensitive for Faces) for almost a decade for the somewhat dark and fast-growing upper lip and chin "sprouts" I've had seen my late teens. I wanted to try something new since the Nair seemed to be burning more and removing less hair lately. This Sally Hansen product got about half "love it" and half "hate it" reviews, but better ones than the competitors', so I bought it.

Well, the reviewer(s) who said it burned IMMEDIATELY were right; I felt it burn within seconds, but it didn't last, so I stuck it out (hey, I'm used to depilatories). I left it on for the maximum recommended time (8 mins.), which may have been too long -- when I wiped it off with a lukewarm-water-soaked cotton makeup pad, it BURNED so badly! I could barely touch it to my face, let alone use enough "force" to wipe the hair off! So needless to say it didn't get all the hair off. So great, I was left with stinging, red splotches AND stubble that I wouldn't be able to pluck or use my Nair on for a few days! The next day you could definitely tell I'd done "work" on my upper lip b/c it was still somewhat red, and I also had tiny, red spots like shaving nicks that had scabbed over, which my makeup didn't even cover.

The after-lotion was a nice touch, and now I understand why they include it: to soothe the burning. It was very painful to apply at first and made it sting even WORSE, but within a few moments it seemed to calm it for a little while. I wouldn't mind the chemical burn so much IF it works and removes all the hair, but this didn't -- not even close.

Bottom line: it doesn't remove all hair, and it BURNS. And this is coming from an experienced depilatory user.

I love this product...I have a lot of dark peach fuzz : ) and absolutelt hate hair on my face this is the only product that works for me and its extremely gentle...I have sensitive skin and have no problems w reactions at all...I will say that if the hair is on the coarse side I don't think it would be as effective...also the after cream it comes with not a big fan I use La Mer after since its much richer

    Comments about Sally Hansen Facial Hair Creme Remover, 2 oz:

    I don't really have sensitive skin, or at least I don't think I do, but when I used this product it immediately irritated my skin making it burn, swell, turn red and become very sensitive. In a way I should have expected this since I have never been able to use any hair removal cream with out some itchiness (which I though was normal). It did remove the hair but it grew back two days after. I also realized it didn't remove it all. I was not pleased with the results, but I personally think that it was not because of the product but because of my skin. I have read many good reviews, but I'm not sure I would recommend it to someone with sensitive skin.

        I have extremely sensitive skin and am under the care of a dermatologist. It is because of this that waxing is out of the question. This product worked well with absolutely no signs of irrittaion.

            Apply a thick layer. Leave it. Wipe off. Throw wipe in toilet, so the smell does not overpower the bathroom. You're done! It's the best product I have found for removing facial hair by far. No mixing or clumpy applicator.

                This product applies evenly, and works well in about 7 minutes. Then just wipe it off with a warm washcloth and you have smooth skin. I did have a bit of trouble removing hair at the corners of my lips but now just put more on. There is a generous amount in the tube, more than you get with Nair and the extra lotion to use afterwards is nice. All in all I am very happy and have purchased a second order of this product! Would highly recommend!

                  This product works better than that awful brand that did nothing. The only downside is that is does sting and burn and leaves your face with red scars.

                      Do not but this, it left my chin red and it burnt like crazy. Even after trying to rinse it off any contact with my skin, even water made it sting. Do not be stupid, do not buy this product.

                          I do not even have sensitive skin, and I followed the directions exactly, but this product burned my skin. I had some swelling on my upper lip after using. It also irritated my chin, and left me red for 3 days after use.

                              I really like the Extrasmooth lotion to use after the hair removal. it seems to calm the skin down. Would actually like to be able to purchase the conditioner with collagen protein in a seperate larger bottle. Thank you.
