Smooth on a thick, even layer to cover hair. DO NOT RUB IN. Wash your hands immediately after applying. Wait 3 minutes. Check a small area for hair removal. If your hair is thick, you may need more time. (DON'T LEAVE ON LONGER THAN 10 MINUTES.) Gently wipe off the lotion and hair with a damp washcloth. DON'T RUB! Once all hair has been removed, rinse skin thoroughly with lukewarm water in the shower. Pat dry and you're good to go!
