RE: Hair removal creams are effective?

Hair removal creams may seem like a pretty simple solution, but as with any skin treatment, you should know your products before you run out to buy them and start slathering them on. Whether or not hair removal creams will work for you depends on your hair and skin type. The body part on which you're applying cream and the amount of hair you have are factors, too. You should consider how often you are willing to apply cream, as most people need to use depilatories once a week. Hair removal creams also have potential side effects, some of which can be painful.

If you think depilatories might work for you, then read on to learn more about how they work, what ingredients they contain, and their advantages and disadvantages.

Not really

Effective for what? They have good temporary results, and they are also easy to apply. That's it.
Be aware of what kind of creams are you using. Most may cause side effects.

yes it is effective..

Yes. Hair removal creams are effective. But they are not permanent. They are a little bit better than shaving. Why? Because, for most people they shaved everyday. When using hair removal creams, such as nair, you could use it every other day or every 2 days. It wont leave your skin dry, you could iliminate razor bumps and ingrown hairs.

However, there is a permanent hair removal method, which is laser hair removal. It might be expensive but if youre going to sum all your hair removal expenses through out time, it would appear cheaper.

It is very good, but it is

It is very good, but it is quite annoying to use. It takes away nearly all the hairs, and they grow back softer, but at the same time it is messy to apply. It is hard to find a good place to use it, because in the shower it will just wash off, in the bath you have to keep your legs out of the water all the time, and then there is nowhere to dispose of the used cream, and if you just try sitting down and applying it out of water it is quite awkward. To be honest, it is quite overpriced, and you end up using nearly the whole lot in one go. It lasts about a week if your hairs are short and fine. I used to buy it from pound shops (they sold real Nair products) but I found it too fiddly and it gets quite annoying on a long term basis. Sorry if it's not what you wanted to hear!! Maybe you'll like it more than I do :)
