Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo is the latter. In the past I've either waxed, which is not an option for me anymore as I get little bumps afterwards and quite frankly it hurts. Or threaded, which is not a bad option but prefer threading only for my eyebrows. The Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo is an effective and painless system which I used for my upper lip area. I was a little skeptic as other hair removal systems left me red & left a chemical burn. But as a beauty blogger I dare say I'm a little brave...
Its simple and painless!
Step 1: Skin Guarding Balm-looks & feels like lip balm, applied to skin area prior to hair removal cream. Helps soften the area & provide a protective barrier. Message the balm into your skin, going beyond the area to be treated just to ensure the hair removal cream itself doesn't come into direct contact with skin.
Step 2: Hair Removal Cream-a water based cream which is applied to the area of which the balm was applied. Wait 6-8 minutes (no longer than 10 minutes), wipe off, rinse skin & voila hairless!
Skin was left soft and smooth, no redness and no irritation! Wish there was a hair removal system that good for the rest of the body. Olay Smooth Finish Hair Removal Duo gets two thumbs up!
