Girls, can we talk about hair removal products?

I hope this isn't too personal but I've never seen it discussed online before. What do you prefer, shaving or removal creme, and which products work best for you?

I hate to sound like a commercial but I just discovered Veet foam gel. It comes with a bladeless razor thing. You put it on for 3 minutes and scrape it off like you were shaving. Works much better than shaving or Nair and a cloth, IMO.

Yeah, it is good for some areas on me. Unfortunately I have horrendously sensitive skin in other certain areas and my only option has been permanent hair removal. Shaving, waxing and veet etc all left me with horrendous ingrown hairs and nasty sores I'm halfway through my hair removal treatment and am absolutely thrilled with the results!! I'm doing Bikini line and underarms

You could not PAY me to discuss hair removal around here.



(But that Veet stuff ... does it smell nasty like Nair does?)

I always loved the smell of Nair

I can't use Nair nor Veet. They give me huge rashes all over my legs...

I have been wanting to try out the Veet. Nair has the most awful smell ever!

For shaving cream I love Aveeno They have the kind that is a hair minimizer which leaves your legs really smooth and helps you to shave less often.

I hate Nair and those sorts of things. And it doesn't really work in certain areas anyway. For shaving my legs I just use my bar soap and a disposable Venus. The rest doesn't need to be discussed in public!

Veet smells too. We used that when the kid first started shaving. It seemed to work well, but of course you'd always miss a spot or section. But then she used the razor and never went back.

Little tip: Use conditioner to shave with. It seems to do pretty well.

As for me... I'm a fan of the Gillette Venus (I tried the Schick Quattro once and it suuuuuucked) but I still hate shaving because it takes so damn long, and you have to do it so damn often.

I've been thinking about trying Veet, but I want to know what everyone else wants to know: Does it stink and does it burn? Because I tried Nair back in the day, and it smelled nasty and burned my skin.
