Nair for Summer Legs and Body to Smile About! #summerready

Disclaimer:  I was provided with items to test in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own and your views may differ, thank you! 

I was born with very dark hair and so there is no getting past it - when I have hairy legs, I have hairy legs - and there's just no hiding it unless I am going out dressed as a tree for the night! 

I don't particularly like the feeling of hairy legs and I know not everyone agrees with me and some do prefer to go natural, but I do like a smooth leg (or two!) and have tried about everything over the years to get the best results.


I have tried creams, many years ago, then stuck with razors as that seemed to be the quickest and easiest option to maintain, but I have fallen out of love with shaving since my back has been going in and out on me lately and my shower is the size the T.A.R.D.I.S would be if - it was the same on the inside as it appeared on the outside! 

When I was offered a chance to try some Nair cream, spray and wax strips recently, I jumped a the chance to get summer-ready and to try something a little out of my current zone of comfort zone and, to my liking, I found them to be very useful and quite effective.

The cream was quite easy to apply, if not a little messy, but easy on in the shower and then after a short time, wiped off to remove the hair. I did not have 100% success, but a big enough success to know that it was well received and I feel like after a few uses I could perfect a better hair removal ratio.

With the Nair spray, however, I had even better, almost 100% results on hair removal, with an easy-spray can to apply the mousse-like cream, in the shower, and easy wash-off for removal after a short time.

I have also tried the wax strips, which are very easy to unbox and ready prepared to be used, so it was just a case of applying, waiting and then removing to remove any hair. They are a little tricky the first time or so, but once you get used to it, you can place and remove the strips quite quickly for effective hair removal results. There is also a wipe to use after any hair removal to comfort and remove any excess wax.

I was impressed with my over-all experience seeing as I haven't used either creams or wax in years, but I was equally happy with the smell of the product, which was not overpowering and light. My skin was left surprisingly smooth - especially after using the spray.

Neither product gave me any nasty side-effects, and I made sure to test them before putting them to use, which is what I recommend for you - especially if you have sensitive skin. I am not a medical expert and I know some products are not for everybody, but it is up to you to figure out if you should or should not indulge.

Personally, I would definitely use the spray again, and the wax strips. The cream is not particularly for me, but that was more because I didn't like that application process, but preferred the quick application with the spray. I do like Cherry Blossom a LOT and so that makes me happy for a scent to wear and my smooth legs appreciate the effort.
