Nair is a company who offer various hair removal products for the body and face.*Product*
Nair Facial Brush On Hair Remover with sensitive formula is an innovative beauty product to aide the removal of unwanted facial hair. It contains camellia oil and ylang ylang and has been dermatologically tested.*Packaging*
This is comes in a box as shown in the dooyoo picture though I recently threw it out though most of the information is located on the bottle as well as the box. The bottle is plastic *recycle* and round with a screw off grey lid. There is a label around the bottle which has the brand name and product name. On the other side there is instructions for use, any caution warnings, company details and a logo stating this can be used for 12months from opening.*Cream*
When you screw off the lid, you discover a long handle with a thick brush attached to the end. The handle is built into the lid like nail polish lids. The hair removal cream is thick and has a baby pink shade. The smell is strong and typical of the majority of hair remover products.*How to Use*
From the bottleIrritation or allergic reaction may occur with some people, even after prior use without adverse effects. Therefore, a test should always be carried out on a small part of the area to be treated before each use. Follow the instructions and if the skin is normal after 24hrs, proceed with the full application.
1. Remove all makeup and other creams or lotions from your face.2. Gentle brush on the cream to completely cover the area of unwanted hair with a thick, even layer. Do not rub in. Replace the cap after use.
3. After 3mins, test a small area. If the hair does not wipe off easily, leave on for 1-2minutes longer. Do not leave for more than 5minutes in total.4. Rinse off thouroughly, with lukewarm water, use a wet flannel if required and pat dry with a soft towel. Do not rub or use soap.
Note - for hair that is especially coarse or hard to remove, saturate the hair with water water for several minutes before application, pat dry then apply the cream.*Cautions*

- if you experience burning or stinging, remove product immediately and rinse well with water

Available in Superdrug at £2.99 and slightly more expensive in Boots. This is for a 50ml size.*My Opinion*
I have a condition which I refer to as *hairchinitis*. I suffer with dark and scary hairs under my chin and a few around my lip area and its depressing to say the least. Unfortuantely it is something that both my Mother and my Granny have and has passed on to me..I couldn't have the nice skin or nice hair..I had to have the hairy chin! So I have plucked, I have trimmed, I have used various hair removal with no success and I can simply not afford laser treatment to blast the hairy bandits for good!In my desperation, I scoured the hair removal treatments and spotted Nair Facial Brush on for sensitive skin. I do have quite sensitive skin and react to various creams and lotions but picked it up and paid the £2.99. I took it home and opened it up. The cream looks a pretty pink shade and the brush is a good size though it has that awful chemical hair remover smell which is vile but I persevered and got out my trusty mirror.
On application, the cream is very cold and goes on thick which is good as you need a thick layer for it to work its magic. By about 2mins my skin was starting to tingle and I tried to see if it was working at 3mins but the hair wasn't for budging so I gritted my teeth and left it for the whole 5mins maximum time then hopped off to the bathroom.I used a soft sponge to remove and along with some luke warm water and I began to gently wipe the cream off. Ouch it stings something terrible when I was wiping which was very unpleasant. I eventually got the cream off and noticed that not only were the hairs still there..they were darker and thicker looking that before! Oh no what I had I done!
I patted my face dry and noticed a few hairs were moving then so I scrubbed a little which you aren't really supposed to but some of the hairs came off. I was left with a sore and tender red chin which I tried to soothe with some cool water but this did not make a difference.So I had managed to kill some of the hair though my chin still had a stubbly appearance and feel to it and by the end of the day..hairs were noticebly clawing their evil ways back onto my skin! I have tried and tried this again as I don't want to waste my money though I personally don't see the point in using a cream that :
- doesn't remove all hairs after application
- leaves you stubbly
- is vile in smell
- stings during and after application
- hairs come back within a few hours
- hairs are thicker and darker when they come back!
