From armpits to legs we women struggle on a daily basis to mange hair growth that we deem unsightly or embarrassing. Ever since I was a preteen I’ve been uncomfortable with said body hair; I even started shaving my legs in 6th grade even though I was blatantly going against my Mothers wishes. I couldn’t get rid of it fast enough although, looking back, I wish someone had warned me about just how much of a chore the routine would come to be in later years. Since my preteen years I have learned that, in addition to the shaving of legs and the removal of armpit hair, there are more important places that need looking after such as the eyebrows, chin and upper lip.
Thankfully with companies like Nads the pesky process of keeping ourselves smooth and hair-free is much easier than it was back in my early learning-to-shave days. I was fortune enough, recently, to receive the chance to work with Nads to review their products for myself. Founded by Sue Ismiel in 1992, Nads is an Australian company that was brought to fruition when Sue created her extremely effective, no heat, natural hair removal product to be used by her young daughter. Sue accomplished her goal with a formula made from simple, everyday ingredients found in her own kitchen.
I was sent the Nads Original Hair Removal Gel, Facial Wand Eyebrow Shaper and Brazilian and bikini wax for my review.
The Nads Original Hair Removal Gel is great for users with sensitive skin since it was the first product that founder, Sue Ismiel, created for her young daughter who had sensitive skin and was in need of a gentle product for her own hair removal needs. It’s hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and uses your own natural body heat to activate the gel so no outside heating methods are necessary. The Original Hair Removal Gel also comes with 100% washable cotton strips so you never run out.
I tested some on my chin. Yep I have a horrible issue with chin hairs:
The Facial Wand Eyebrow Shaper is a real lifesaver when it comes to touching up or giving your brows a much needed makeover. Forget paying salon prices, the Facial Wand Eyebrow Shaper is extremely affordable and can give you the same flawless finish that any salon professional can. With it’s precision tip, the Wand delivers just the right amount of wax to your desired area. Hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested, this awesome product is completely water rinsable so if you make a mistake it’s totally easy to clean up and there’s no mess or residue left over like most other waxes on the market.
Thankfully, I’m pretty okay with my eyebrows but every now and then I start to get a unibrow look. With the Facial Wand Eyebrow shaper I can quickly put wax in just the right spot and clean it up:
The Brazilian and Bikini Wax is a no strips required formula that has been specifically designed for our sensitive skin and coarse bikini area hair. While regular visits to the salon can add up to quite the pretty penny, the Brazilian and Bikini Wax is super affordable and enables you to work at your own pass while passing by the embarrassing and painful process of going through a salon professional. Better yet, at such an affordable price, the Bikini Wax formula comes with enough to do 2-3 Brazilian sessions. That’s huge savings for you! I’m not sure I’m up for trying to do a Brazilian at home but it could come in handy.
The best thing about using each of these products? There was no burning from hot wax and no after sting.
