Recently, I had to have a “come to Jesus” conversation with my new relatives Mrs. Beard and her brother Mr. Mustache. They pop up periodically on my face like those relatives you don’t want to see! Both of them know that I despise their sneaky, pesky, and coarse facial hair attacks that decide to make appearances at various times of the month, but I’ve found an easy solution.
In a past post, I wrote about hair removal for the face and my thoughts on which products worked best for me. I’m officially hooked on Olay Facial Hair Removal Duo! I know that I’m probably late to the party but I’ve been busy trying so many other skin and cosmetic products that it’s only now that I’ve been able to use this product and report my findings. Unlike other home removal hair products, Olay does not include wipes and oils. Instead, the removal system (for hair textures ranging from fine to coarse) contains one balm that you massage into the area being treated before using the actual removal cream, which comes in a slim tube with an applicator at the tip. Olay did a great job with keeping the application process simple and they figured out how to almost completely eliminate that noxious odor that usually accompanies facial hair removal creams.
After removing the cream with a tissue and rinsing with lukewarm water, Mrs. Beard and Mr. Mustache had been officially evicted! On a serious note, I have dry, sensitive skin along with eczema, so I was elated to my skin felt smooth and suffered zero irritation issues. The removal system is available at your local mass merchandise stores (I purchased mine from Target) and the price tag was a little heftier than other brands, but totally worth every penny!
