Do you all remember your mom using Nair when you were growing up? I remember so vividly that pink bottle of Nair, always in the bathroom, sitting on the corner of the tub. (Recognize that bottle above?)
What’s the next thing you remember about Nair? I remember stinging skin, and a very, very strong smell. Still with me?
Last week I got a big ol’ box of products from Nair to try out, and my first thought was….. could it be the same Nair I remember? Will it smell the same? Feel the same? Honestly, I haven’t given Nair a second thought since I left my teens, and this was the first time I really considered giving it a try again.
I opened the first box, and it was their new product, Spa Clay. So how’d it go?? Follow me after the jump!
This product you can use in the shower, but I didn’t want to use it in the shower – wanted to give it a shot on the tub….like mom. So I pulled out the pre-wipes, wiped the mineral oil and chamomile on my legs to get them ready. Took about 2 seconds.
Next, I took the sponge that came with the clay, and smeared a thick layer of Nair all over my legs. One thing I noticed immediately is that SMELL is almost gone! Part of me remembers this smell very well, but it was mild compared to what I remembered. Next thing I noticed was it didn’t burn…. at all….. ever. I left it on my skin for about 5 minutes before I checked to see if it was working, and to my surprise, it worked! I used the pink spatula the kit came with, and in a couple, quick motions, I had all the Nair and hair off! In less than 10 minutes my legs were so soft and hairless – it’s like I spent half an hour getting my legs waxed! Seriously!
I think the #1 thing I like about Nair the most (besides how easy and effortless it is) is how long the hair stays away. When I shave, I’m lucky to have 2 days before I have to shave again. I’m at least 3 days into my Nair experience, and I can barely feel the hair!
I will absolutely positively be using this again. It was so easy to use, and the results last so much longer than shaving!!
