Nair Review

Hello fashionistas!

When I showed that I purchased Nair a couple of weeks ago, I had many requests to do a review. 
So here goes nothing!

The product.

I bought Nair to try out because I had this strange rash on my knee and I was worried that if I shaved it would spread it. Thankfully the rash is gone, in case you cared! 

I've had friends who have tried Nair before and I was forewarned that it did not smell very pleasant. This was true. I decided that I could get past the stank of it, if it really worked. 
The directions state to apply on dry legs and let it sit for no longer than 10 minutes, and you can go about your normal showering routine while having it on.
I tried to use it in the shower, after letting it sit I started to use the sponge and rub it on my legs in a circular motion. Nothing was happening (other than my nose being attacked by the chemical scent). So, after I showered I dried my legs and reapplied. I figured I didn't use enough of it, so I waited, let it sink in, and tried to use the sponge again. It worked, after a good twenty minutes of painful scrubbing. The pores on my legs were enlarged to the max. There were also angry red splotches all over my legs. 

Did it remove hair?
Yes, it did do that. It didn't leave my legs silky smooth like a normal razor would, they felt slightly stubbly. 

Did you give it another try?
I did. It was the same thing. Giant pores and not a normal razor silky finish.

Would you recommend this?
Honestly, no I wouldn't. My legs stung after using this product. Maybe it was just my skin, or maybe that's a normal reaction, I don't know. Unless I have another rash on my leg, I will not being using this! 

Did you like anything about this product?
I liked the fact that it was a pump dispenser. Does that count?

I'm curious to know what other's thoughts are on this product. Let me know in the comments below!
^ I just love the way that rhymes. 




  1. Ive been wanting to try this! Thank you for reviewing it! xoxoxo you gorgeous thang you!

  3. Thanks for the lovely review, doll. I find it kind of weird how they left your legs feeling more stubbly than a normal razor would :/ I don't think I'll be purchasing this any time soon.

  4. I've used Nair, but not the Shower Power Max, which I will NOT be using thanks to your review. It doesn't sound as though it worked at all!

    Also, thank you so much for stopping by my blog the other day, and for the compliments. You made me blush!

  5. I have tried other nair product I did on my legs and it worked but then I did it on my underarms and noting happen after a while it just burn soooooooo bad it suck!!
