Get Smooth For Summer With Hair Removal By Nair

With summer around the corner, that means it’s time for bikinis, denim cut-offs and hitting the beach. And showing off more skin! One of my least favorite things to do in the summer is making sure I don't miss a spot on my legs while shaving and that awkward in between time when hair needs to grow in a bit before shaving or else you get razor burn. Nair to the rescue! Nair products provide professional results at home for staying smooth all summer long – at a fraction of what you’d pay at a salon for hot waxing.
I had the opportunity to try out their Brazilian Spa Clay Total Care Body Trio and Face Trio. They are the latest additions to the popular Brazilian Spa Clay Line inspired by the beauty secrets and hair removal expertise of Brazil. Each product is infused with mango butter and açai berry known to moisturize the skin, and mineral-rich clay known to purify the skin.

Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Total Care™ Face Trio is the first 3-step depilatory for the face with a suggested retail price of $13.99. The box says you'll get up to 16 uses so that's less than $1 per use!

Step 1: Make sure you remove all makeup. Prep the skin with the pre-balm first, which coats the skin to help minimize irritation and redness. Spread a thin layer against the hair growth.

Step 2: There’s no drying time so you can apply the hair removal cream immediately after using the pre-balm. Use the contoured applicator to spread a thick, even layer over area. Do not rub in. Leave cream on for 7 minutes (total hair removal depends on hair thickness - do not exceed 10 minutes). 
Step 3: Gently wipe off with a damp wash cloth. Do not rub. Rinse skin thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
Step 4: After removing the depilatory product, apply the moisturizer, which is similar to a typical facial moisturizer. This will help neutralize the pH of the skin, bringing it back to the normal level.

The results: I was very pleased with the results. I did have some redness and sensitivity afterwards but that eventually went away. I am a big fan of Olay's Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo but you only get 12 uses for around $24 plus there's no moisturizer. So Nair's product is more bang for your buck!

Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Shower Total Care™ Body Trio is the only 3-step in-shower depilatory system, including the convenient Nair Shower Power® technology that works while you shower. The suggested retail price is $13.99. It doesn't say how many uses but the jar is 12 oz, which is a good amount. Here's what comes inside:

L-R: Pre-use wipes, Dual moisturizing blend hair removal cream (sponge inside), smoothing post-use gel, spatula

Step 1: Use the pre-wipe to prepare your skin before removing hair. It contains mineral oil and chamomile to avoid irritation.

Step 2: Skin must be dry before applying. Use sponge or spatula to apply a thick, even layer of cream (I used the sponge). Do not rub in. Cover the entire area of hair you want to be removed. Wait at least 1 minutes before entering the shower. Note: I didn't rinse off in the shower since I applied to my underarms. I just used a warm washcloth. 
Step 4: In the shower, leave the cream on the skin for at least 3 minutes; try to avoid excessive exposure to water on the areas which are covered with the cream.
Step 5: After 3 minutes, wash cream off with a warm washcloth. Total hair removal time depends on hair thickness. Do not exceed 10 minutes. Rinse skin thoroughly with warm water and pay dry. Do not rub.

Step 6: After the hair is removed, apply soothing post-use gel with Aloe Vera for a perfect finish.

The results: I used this on my underarm (didn't want to share TMI pics) and left it on within the suggested 10 minutes. However, there was a slight red area on one armpit that was sore when I applied the soothing gel. It eventually went away after a few days but I probably wouldn't use this on my underarms again. The hair grew back quicker than I thought or hoped. Also, there are only 2 pre-use wipes so you can only use the product twice which is a bummer since you're given so much of the hair removal cream.
