Guide Review- Avon Skin So Soft Fresh & Smooth Facial Hair Removal Cream

I had a hair removal party and used this product on three different hair and skin types. Let me say, trying to come up with an invitation for that was a bit difficult! We tried several different types of hair removers, but the number one for the evening was this product by Avon.

Picture three girls, with relatively thick mustaches and even one person with what she called her goatee. They all used the Avon hair removal cream on their faces.

First Tackle: Sensitive Skin

The first victim, "Elizabeth", has blond, thin hair. She tends to have sensitive skin and breaks out with most make-up and skin care products. She had a slight mustache that she was not fond of and would normally shave it every day. She used to wax but with the economy the way it is, she has to watch every penny.

She simply used the tube and smoothed on a thick layer over her top lip and left it on for 2 minutes and 3 seconds. Yep, we had a stopwatch. Voila. All her hair was gone. She didn't have any redness, bumps or tightness and said her upper lip felt very soft. She was pleased with the outcome.

Next Up: Thick Facial Hair

The second girl to try the product was "Nelah". She had the same mustache going on, except her facial hair is black and thick. She has normal skin with no dryness. I must add that she is from India, and beautiful without the extra facial hair, but with it, wow. Let's just say I was happy to have her try the product.

She simply applied cream and waited for 3 minutes and 23 seconds. She has tried cream hair removers before and has always had to leave them on for much longer than recommended. Using a warm damp cloth she revealed her beautiful hairless face. There was no redness or puffiness, and her face felt soft. Although she could do with out the "nasty smell", as she put it.

Last: De-fuzzing Lip and Chin

Next was "Gretchen". She has drier skin with brown, thick hair that tends to be coarser. She did the same by smoothing the product over her lip and chin area. She waited the exact 2 minutes and thirty seconds and removed it to reveal her hairless lip and chin. She said she did not have to press hard to remove the hair. Her upper lip felt tight but not dry, and she had no redness or red bumps. She said it beat the painful waxing she has been doing for years.

Overall

The only downfall that these girls and I found was the awful scent of the product. It did not smell fresh or clean. It did its job well and lived up to everything the product information stated.

first time using a hair removal product for face, Member michele1319

I have both light blond hair and several patches of course dark hair. I left on for almost 5 minutes. Removed almost all of my hair. A couple of the course black ones where still there, very easy to tweese. I do have some redness which could be from leaving it on for almost 5 minutes. This is my first time ever using a product, I always plucked or bleached the dark hairs. Its only been a day but so far I like it!
