Get Smooth For Summer In Three Simple Steps with Nair Hair Removal!

With summer around the corner, it’s time for bikinis and short shorts {for some, more like one pieces and the occasional flouncy, knee length skirt for me} and overall, showing off more skin. Nair products provide professional results at home for staying smooth all summer long – at a fraction of what you’d pay at a salon. Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Total Care Body Trio and Face Trio are the new depilatories to join 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.

I'm not gonna front like I don't shave, it's quick and easy which is important in a pinch {like when you've got two little girls playing with all of your products right outside of the shower you're occupying, when they're not repeatedly pulling the curtain back to ask when you're getting out, soaking themselves and the floor in the process}. But truth be told, I prefer depilatories: I feel that for my skin, they produce smooth, longer lasting results AND they're a bit more useful {and thorough} in certain...delicate areas {and my forearms}.

Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Shower Total Care Body Trio

Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Shower Total Care Body Trio (MSRP $13.99) is the only 3-step in-shower depilatory system, including the convenient Nair Shower Power technology that works while you shower.

Step 1: The pre-wipe contains mineral oil and chamomile to prepare your skin before removing hair.

Step 2: Apply the depilatory, which is resistant to water through emollients similar to those found in waterproof sunscreens so it will resist runoff while you shower. Keep the area out of the direct stream of water.

Step 3: After the hair is removed, apply soothing post-use gel with Aloe Vera for a perfect finish.

All in all this was super easy to use: the cream is thick and clings well {less mess}, it doesn't smell terrible, and I love the two applicators that are included {a sponge and a spatula}. The after care aloe moisturizer is super soothing and non irritating {even on delicate areas} and I really like the gel formula. The one slight drawback-while I like the idea of a pre care step, there are only two of the wipes, and considering the generous amount of depilatory cream, their inclusion is nice but a bit superfluous {I'd be all about them if the amount included was comparable to the amount of hair removal cream}

I've pretty much gotten a grip on hair removal on the major parts of my body {legs, underarms, and um... other areas}, but I haven't pinpointed what works best to tackle the peach fuzz {and FYI: unless a woman is sporting a full on Fu Manchu-NEVER refer to her facial hair as a mustache}. I've tried waxing and various depilatories and have come to the conclusion that those options are either too painful, or too strong for the delicate skin above my lip, or not quite strong enough to do the job adequately. But I think I may have found a winner in the Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Total Care Face Trio (MSRP $13.99), the first 3-step depilatory for the face.

Step 1: The first step is the pre-balm, which coats the skin to help minimize irritation and redness.

Step 2: The second step is the depilatory. There’s no drying time so you can apply the depilatory immediately after using the pre-balm.

Step 3: 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.

It only takes about 7 minutes to transform your upper lip to a more... feminine {ie-hair free} surface. Let's face it, it doesn't matter how flawless your makeup application is if unwanted hair is peeking through {and that sparkly lip gloss and the latest bright lipstick shade only attract attention to it more}. The pre treatment balm is a game changer {the lip gloss like applicator is star}.
