Most Helpful Positive Review Way better than Nair
If shaving or waxing is too irritating for you "down there" this is a great alternative. I've tried Nair's version for the full ten minutes and it did not work. As long as you pamper your skin with a gentle scrub, good moisturizer (Shea Moisture after shave lotion works great) and don't over do it with this cream, you shouldn't have a problem with irritation or ingrown hairs (and I use it for a full Brazilian look). The irritation I get from using this product is way less than shaving or waxing, and if/when I do get irritation it seems to be from other factors like wearing rough fabrics (tactical pants) or feminine products, which irritates me regardless. If it irritates you at first, give your skin a couple tries to adjust (mine did at first too) before you give up. DO NOT leave it on for longer than ten minutes. TIP: place a HOT wash cloth (not too wet) over the area for a few minutes before use to soften the hair and make the product more effective.
Most Helpful Critical Review Be very careful when using this product
Usually I take to using a razor to shave my bikini area for a close to Brazilian look. However, as we all know, razor burn is a very real thing and can get very uncomfortable if the area wasn't shaved right. I saw some positive reviews on this product so I decided to try it out. I applied a little to my skin to make sure I didn't get an allergic reaction before, and it looked all clear. I applied it to my bikini area just as the directions say on the box. However, after 4 minutes (which is the minimum time you should leave it on for) I started feeling pain and burning. I quickly wiped the product off. It was very patchy and only removed parts of the hair. I also was left with a massive chemical burn and rash that is very painful. It made my skin break and bleed and I usually do not have very sensitive skin. If you purchase this product, be extremely careful and do your research to know the risks before you end up with a painful chemical burn.

Shaving my bikini zone always leaves razor burn immediately, which defeats the purpose, and I don't wax. (And I never liked Nair.) This stuff is amazing. And easy to use. I hop in the shower to trim hair down with my trimmer and use the warm water to open pores. After drying off, I apply and leave on for the full ten minutes before showering and wiping off with a washcloth. The hair wipes right off my legs. Perfect. Seriously no pain, which is great because I'm a wimp. Never any issues. Only once was there anything like razor burn and I think it actually had more to do with my legs sweating and irritating the skin while I sat with my legs crossed in the hot humidity. I've gone through multiple bottles and even bought some for other people. It's great. Effective and no pain, I've never found anything like it.
Worked without issue
Kari from Cincinnati Ohio
I get red blemishes when I shave. I used this for about 5 minutes and it didn't remove everything but the more I rubbed the more came off. I showered right after to remove the excess cream so many that's the trick to avoiding irritation? No rash and most hair removed. I'll try again in a few days to get the rest.

this product didnt work and only caused issues. Not worth it!
Burning, bumpy, irritated skin
Gray The Skincare Enthusiast from Pittsburgh, PA
Sensitive formula but gave me a painful burning sensation. Left bumps that look as bad as razor burn. I think waxing would have been less painful. This formula and I clearly did not get along.
Pm from Seattle, WA
It only takes off the longer hair and leaves the little stubble, plus very uneven. I even used it 8 min because it wasn't working, still doesn't. Smells like sulfur.
Does not work
Court from Pennsylvania
I did exactly what the instructions said and tried it 3 different times and it didn't remove even one hair. I don't know what I'm doing wrong!
Better than Nair
Becca from Fayetteville, GA
I use to use Nair brand but it would leave a chemical burn for a day or two and this one only slightly irritates me for a few hours, so major upgrade. Another plus is that it doesn't give me the razor burn bumps when my hair starts growing back.
NEVER BUY THIS!
Bells from Virginia
If I could rate it negative stars, I would. The first time I used it, I left it on for 4 minutes, no results. Left it on for another few minutes, and nothing came off. Just made my skin super red and irritated and not attractive at all. Gave it another try with what was left in the bottle, left it on for 10 minutes this time and NOTHING. NO RESULTS. JUST REDBUMPS WITH TONS OF HAIR STILL. WORTHLESS PRODUCT.
Wish I never tried this
jessx0x from Utica, New York
Awful product. I bought this to try something new and it burnt my skin SO bad. My skin had such a bad reaction to this product I had to sleep with a cold pack on my skin.
I would NEVER recommend this to anyone!
Burns your "lips"
Elle from New Mexico
I used it for the recommended 4 minutes and it did not fully remove the hair. Once I got to the inner bikini area and outer "lips" i put it on and it started burning within a minute. My brazilian zone was really red and bleeding. Didn't work well and burned. Would not recommend.
Gave me a chemical burn
❤️ from Foley, Alabama
I've used countless cream hair removers, and since I love Bikini Zone products I figured I would give this a try. I did like the consistency of the cream and the odor was not nearly as bad as others I've used before. I used it once on longer hairs and it worked just fine, so I decided to try it again a week later on some shorter hairs. The cream got in my skin and was burning me before I was even done applying it. After another minute I took off the cream and had a red, sensitive, burning spot on my skin. The next day it was a full-blown chemical burn and it lasted for an entire week. I'm not really surprised, but I won't be repurchasing this product. I still love Bikini Zone's other products though
made me cry
This Product Sucks from wisconsin
I tried this product out hoping to remove my hair without the razor burn. I followed all of the directions. A couple minutes after I applied it it started to burn really bad and I assumed it was ok so i left it of for the remainder of the four minutes when I took it off I had a huge burn and broken skin it felt so painful that I started to cry. My skin usually isn't this sensitive at all. This product is terrible.
Kaylee from Arkansas
Stick to nair. This didn't burn me but also didn't remove the hair.
Burnt me so bad!
KH from Raleigh, NC
This cream burnt me very very bad for a few days. I used it exactly as instructed and didn't leave it on for a long time, and somehow that area bled and burnt and it was so bad that even using water to clean off the cream was so painful. I would never buy or use this again; what a waste.
works for me
val from Scranton
I used to use Nair which I'd have to leave on longer and it would irritate me. This, I can leave on for only 5 minutes and is thicker and you need to use less. you have to apply anything like this on thick. It takes away everything for me. Different products effect people differently.
Cmilasky from Ohio
Don't use this product if you plan on using it in sensitive areas. I used it on my underarms and it burned me! Was painful to even shower or put on deodorant after that.
Run from this product
Luna from Lancaster, CA
I bought this product as an alternative to shaving and needless to say, I regret that completely. Apparently this product WILL give you chemical burns, and I say this because it did in fact burn me if you apply too close together, and nowhere does it warn you that this might happen. Also, chances are you will have to shave before you use this anyway, literally the one thing you are trying to avoid doing. The smell is awful, and you better be prepared for stubble after you use it. Also, that Hair Growth Inhibitor that comes with it takes a minimum of a month of use—maybe—to actually work. Save yourself the trouble and go to a waxing salon. Overall a better value, and you'll have to do it less than this because it lasts you maybe two days (and you have to wait a minimum of four to apply again if you don't want ACTUAL CHEMICAL BURNS).
Does Not Work
LL from Pittsburgh
Does not remove all hair. What does remove still leaves stubble and isnt smooth. Smells TERRIBLE.
It made my bikini area have male pattern baldness
Suffering from Columbus, GA
I have fine hair that was maybe at most a quarter inch in length. I put a thick layer of this on and left it on for a good 5 or 6 minutes. It slightly stung but I didn't think much of it, because I tend to have sensitive skin anyways. However, when I tried to remove this stuff, it barely removed anything, and the hairs that it did remove weren't removed completely so the skin didn't even feel soft underneath. I tried putting another layer on the patches that it missed and left it on for another 5 or so minutes, and it didn't even affect them. I tried to shave after it since I didn't want my bikini area to look like Danny DeVito and when I put the shaving cream on my skin burned like crazy. I'm laying here trying to air out and thirty minutes later I still feel like I rubbed a porcupine all over myself. I would give this 0 stars if I could.
Mediocre at best

It was easy to use, but it didn't works as well as expected
Terrible deserves less than one star
Brooke from Wilmington NC
It's absolutely terrible waste of money my hair is fine not hard to remove at all but it made barely any difference and burned my skin bad
Ash from Raleigh nc
This worked amazingly. Yes, it stinks but all hair removal does. I expected it to remove some hair and I'd have to shave the rest but it removed it all completely and I have very course hair! It was baby smooth. This stuff works!
Didn't work at all
PureMichigan0 from Michigan
Did do anything at all and I left it on for more 4-10 minutes. Even applied more after I tested a small area. Burned skin, ended up using shaving cream instead.
