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.

    Do not use:
  • Around the eyes, eyebrows, ears, nose, breast, perianal, or genital areas. If eye contact occurs, rinse right away with water and seek medical advice.
  • On scars, moles, broken, irritated, sunburned, or skin that has been shaved within 72 hours or severe irritation can result.
  • More than 10 minutes per application or severe irritation can result.
  • The product again for at least 72 hours since last application.
  • On skin that has suffered an adverse reaction to hair removal creams in the past.

    Ask a Doctor before use if you are taking any medications which can affect the skin or if you suffer from any skin related disorder. Stop Use and seek medical advice if you experience swelling, rash, or other changes to your skin that persist after removal of the product from your skin. To avoid irritation, do not sunbathe, swim, or apply any perfumed product on treated skin area for 24 hours after use.

            Personally, I really think that the advertising on the package is misleading. I thought you could use this product all over your face; however it is only made to used on the upper lip. For what it is supposed to do, plus the price, I was not pleased. I would really recommend buying the Minerals of Eden dual kit, it's for all the face area plus it exfoliates the skin and the result are really amazing. the price is a bit higher though... but it worth it!!

              I don't understand all the negative reviews. I used the medium coarse version. Followed all the directions. Instructions said 8-10 minutes, I left on for the full 10. 'Stache totally gone. Zero redness, zero irritation. Not a particularly strong scent. I'm not sure why the one review mentioned having to use this every 3 weeks, it's a dipilitory not permanent hair removal, of course you'll need to reapply.

                  I have used this hair remover since it came on the market. I use the medium to course version since I have thick dark hair on my upper lip. I do not use the balm before applying since I found that it coats some of the hair and does not remove it. I thickly apply just the white cream to the areas where there is hair on my lip. I leave it on for about 6 minutes and remove with a wet washcloth pulling the cloth in the opposite direction of the hair growth. It removes almost all of the hair and I find that it does not irritate my skin. I will continue to purchase this product since I have not found any others that work as well.

                  I have sensitive skin and pretty heavy peach fuzz and this worked wonderfully! The smell isn't as strong as some other depilatories which is a plus. Very simple to use and virtually mess-free

                  I personally have not used this one, but I use the one for fine hair. (teal box) I absolutely love this product and am very upset because I cannot find any where any more. If anyone can tell me where to find it please contact me.

                          I use the one for course hair and I think it works great! I've tried other products and they just don't get close enough that I found I was trying to use them every day. This one I use at most once a week and can go longer even. I have sensitive skin and this has never irritated my skin. Just use the protecting balm as directed. This by far is the best product for me and worth the cost. One kit lasts awhile.

                              it works ok for me. but it left my skin red and sensitive for a couple of hours after using. I would recommend trying the "Minerals of Eden" special facial kit, it's a bit more expensive but I think it's the best facial product on the market today for sure.
