After getting bored of shaving and hating the stubbly feeling I decided I may try hair removal cream but from almost every review I've seen people say it's very painful?

This.


Really, don't do it. It burns like hell. Take the precaution of applying a little bit onto the area you want and waiting a good minute to make sure.

Edit: by the way, it was Veet.

It doesn't hurt, it slightly stings BUT I wouldn't say it's a better alternative to shaving, fair enough it requires less effort but the hair will still grow back thicker and as quickly as it does with shaving.

It may be just a tad exaggerated, but probably best not to test it out....

These are hilarious reviews, nevertheless there is probably an important lesson there!

I just used some Veet stuff (not trying to sell it, honest!) and I've had mixed results.
On the one hand it lasts a lot longer than shaving and it is easy to spot any bits you've missed straight away. It's also painless and there's no risk of cutting yourself.
On the downside it doesn't smell too great, takes a bit more time and if you have shaved recently (like less than 3 days before) it will burn like ****. I've only been in more pain when I dislocated my kneecap. Ok I probably didn't really help with the reassuring thing, but if you don't shave recently before, it should be fine.

If you're worried, try the versions made for sensitive skin.

Probably a wise choice. Perhaps frozen sprouts also.

I use veet. No problems ever. Plus your hair grows back nice and thin.

Entirely depends on your skin and the cream you use
There are some made for sensitive skin which you could try if you're afraid of the burning.

My brother uses cream. He says it smells a bit, but he's never complained about pain. I guess it just depends on your skin type. He uses Aloe Vera after to sooth the skin; that was my recommendation

I went through a phase of using it for a few weeks. Did the test patch, fine. Used it every 5/6 days or so. One time I did it (for a normal length of time following the instructions meticulously) I got horrible chemical burn all on my calves and the hair follicles were bleeding and wouldn't stop for ages. Never again :eek:

If this is what you have in mind read the reviews here. No good will come of it http://www.amazon.co.uk/Veet-Men-Hai.../dp/B000KKNQBK
