Anyway, i was able to try this product when i included it on my HBC loot.
A local hair remover product?!
This i got to see!
I have tried Sally Hansen Hair Removing Cream before during my college years. My friend & I tried it in the hopes of making our hair removing easier compare to shaving. I remember buying the green variant of it with the "works in 4 minutes" logo on it.
That was the first & the last hair remover lotion that i have tried. It just means that my experience is not good so i didn't dare buy it again to try it once more. Wanna know why?
- It didn't remove the hairs on my legs
- It smells so bad (a very strong chemical scent - like those perming creams!ugh!)
- made my skin dry
- very messy
After years & years of my bad experience with depilatory lotion, i guess it's time to try it again.
What have i got to lose,right?
It has Shea Butter & Olive so it just means that this won't at least dry my skin as bad as Sally Hansen did. It's available locally & made locally so it's good. I think this is the only filipino-made depilatory cream.
It includes a spatula which is quite convenient!
Net content of 1.76 fl.oz/50g
hmmm.... it's quite small but i guess with the price you pay for, it's not bad.
Regular Price is Php 105 (a little more than $2)
Product Information, Directions, Ingredients, etc.
Just click it to make it large...
The product is a white cream that smells like a perming cream too but not as bad as Sally Hansen did.
At least this is tolerable...
It says on the direction that you have to leave it on for 5-7minutes but not longer than 10mins. The hairs on my legs are already quite long because i have kept on putting my waxing session off. Anyway, i mostly go out wearing pants or anything that could cover my legs so i am not really in a hurry to wax it off.
I used 1 whole tube for my big leg...hahaha!
Hey! It's only 50g & the instruction says that i have to apply a thick amount. So i generously slather on the whole tube just for 1 leg.... good thing that i have 2 tubes!
Sorry for the hairy leg... What am i thinking of posting my big hairy leg? LOL!
Looks awful i know, but then you'll get to see the effectiveness of the product.
Feel free to click it again for a closer look.
I left it for a little more than 7 minutes & i wiped it off with wet wipes, since i don't have any cloth to spare.
There would still be hairs left on your first wipe, but just continue wiping it until all the hairs are completely removed.
I then washed it off with cold water & applied the Body Recipe Pure Coco Oil Body Butter all over my legs. Actually i can get away with not applying body butter on my legs since it didn't made my skin dry, but i don't want to risk my skin.
I am wow-ed by the result!
My legs feel so soft & smooth like a baby's bottom! hahaha!
I said before that i do wax my legs. I like how my skin feels a couple of hours after waxing right after the redness had subside & my hydrating lotion had been absorbed by my skin. But this one just made my hair removing experience something to look forward to!
This is way better than shaving, of course.
I hate it when you shave & then you run your hands the oppose direction of you hair growth & feel the stubble. It's very disturbing & annoying...
No pain & soft, smooth, hair-free skin in just less than 10 minutes?!
Why would i not like this?!
I am so glad that i included this in my basket because i really really like it!
I posted this now because you have to take advantage of the Great at 88 sale! You can get it for only Php 88 as opposed to the regular price of Php 105. Not much if a difference, i know but hey, it's better to buy it discounted,right?
Let's summarize my experience...
- has a spatula included
- easy to use
- painless way to remove hair
- was able to remove my hairs 98% (really effective!)
- locally available
- pinoy product
- doesn't dry the skin
- leaves the skin soft & smooth after use
- doesn't leave a scent when wiped off
- "disturbing" scent (but tolerable) hahaha! can't find a word to describe it..lol
- the quantity is too little
- could be messy especially when taking off
- might not be available internationally (i think HBC is available in US)
It's definitely a keeper!
My legs are so smooth i can't help but touch it!
Can i have a lifetime supply of this, Ms. Lorie? I freakin love it!
If you want to try depilatory creams but is not yet ready to shell out, then this is a great option!
You don't have anything to lose in trying this!
Take it from me, i have been removing my body hair ever since i was in highschool. If only this was available back then, my depilatory cream experience would definitely be wayyyyyyyyyyyy better!
Did i said that this is pinoy-made?
Yeah, i did. But i am stressing that this is made here! So let's support our local products.
This product is really worth checking out!
Make sure you include this in your HBC basket,ok?
Hurry, because their sale is only up until the 21st of this month!
Have a great day,hunnies!
