Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo

Fine To Medium

Item #: 2238112

Options

Healthy, youthful looking skin helps define female beauty, and research shows that unwanted facial hair prevents many women from feeling as feminine as they would like, impacting their quality of life and confidence.

Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo Includes:
  • Removal Cream (0.68 oz.)
  • Skin Guarding Balm Stick (0.06 oz.)
48 Hours Prior To Every Use: Read and follow warnings and directions carefully. Conduct 48-hour skin reaction test.

Step 1: Prepare the skin:
  • Apply Skin Guarding Balm.
  • First, lightly swipe the Skin Guarding Balm only once across the middle of the areas you wish to treat. Important: apply a thin layer to ensure effective hair removal.
  • Massage Skin Guarding Balm.
  • Use your fingers to massage the Skin Guarding Balm into your skin, going beyond the area you wish to treat. Massage for 20 seconds in a circular motion.
  • Effective massage ensures there is a thin layer to keep the Hair Removal Cream from coming in direct contact with your skin, while ensuring the balm doesn't overly coat any hairs you want to remove.

    Step 2: Remove the Hair:
  • Apply Hair Removal Cream.
  • Squeeze the Hair Removal Cream onto your fingertip (small grape size for upper lip treatment) and immediately smooth over the area to be treated (on top of the balm), covering it completely with a thick layer. Do not rub it in. Use only with the Skin Guarding Balm provided.
  • Wash hands immediately and thoroughly. Wait for 6-8 minutes. Leave on longer for thicker hair, but do not exceed 10 minutes.
  • Remove Hair/Cream.
  • After 6-8 minutes, gently remove cream with a tissue or cotton ball (do not rub excessively). Rinse your skin thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.

    Precautions: This product can cause allergic reactions and irritation. 48 Hours Before each use, test your skin reaction by applying small pea size amount of cream on forearm evenly. Do not rub in. After 10 minutes remove product off your skin with a tissue or cotton swab. Rinse the area with water. If after 48 hours there is no adverse reaction, begin using as directed. If discomfort or irritation occurs, remove the product right away and rinse area with cold water. Prolonged or frequent use may cause allergic reactions and irritation, even after prior use without adverse effect. If irritation persists, stop use and seek medical advice or call a Poison Control Center.

      Comments about Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo:

      I started prednisone treatment a few months ago and had some facial hair growth as a side effect. I have very sensitive skin- I tried various depilatories - all made me break out in a rash or hives. Even waxing caused me to have bumps and hives. I decided to try this out because of the pretreatment balm. I think it's the balm. It says to add a thin layer - I just added a bit more- I would spread some on, massage it, then added another thin layer. As a result- I am hair free and my skin is not irritated, red or in hives. I would give this a 5, but the price is a bit steep. BTW- I had fine facial hair with a bit fine-medium across my forehead. Came off no problem.

      Good product too expensive

      By Debbie61

      Comments about Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo:

      This product works quite well in removing the hair on my upper lip. Finding it in the store can be hard. I am in agreement that this is over priced. As for doing anything for my skin, I would have to it does nothing.

      Wasn't effective

      By LovelyLady31

      from Lewisville,TX

      Comments about Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo:

      As an African American woman it is very challenging to find a product that works on my facial hair.I had very high hopes for this product, especially since it was on the expensive side. However, it did NOT remove my hair. Instead it only removed hair in random patches. For the price of the product I expect so much more. Olay has always been a go to brand for me. I am very disappointed.

      I bought this product two weeks ago and I do not like it at all. I would really recommend trying "Minerals of Eden" special face cream duo kit!!!

      this product does what I need it to do even on my chin but...there is not enough skin guarding balm in the box. i have 3 tubes of hair removal cream and no balm. they should put more in the package without raising the price

        Not Effective on chin area

        By siva

        from BNg

        Comments about Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo:

        This cream works okay on finer facial hairs, but it was ineffective on the coarser chin hairs - I still had to pluck afterward. I will continue to use this cream on the finer hairs and pluck where needed, but when it's finished I will not repurchase.
