A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure once again of receiving a fabulous gift from Glamour. It was time for the third round of Olay products for the Glambassdors to test out. I couldn’t wait to see which product they sent us to try out. I grabbed the envelope and literally ripped it open and to my surprise it was what I have been waiting; Olay’s Facial Hair Removal Duo!!!
Now being a girl who is 100% Italian, thank you mom and dad, I have had the unpleasant gift of having dark facial hair. Yay! Since the age of 11 or 12, I forget it’s been SO long, I have been either waxing, bleaching, threading, using burning creams and yes even a had a laser treatment or two. Thousands of dollars purchased and spent over the years. And to be honest, I would prefer to not have my face ripped off, poked at or even have had a laser shooting at it, but sometimes pain is beauty, right? But honestly, to me a cream should be the way to go, however, every cream I had tried, left a burning feeling on my face as well as redness (not a pretty sight when you’re trying to get ready to go out). So clearly using those creams were not an option I could stay with until….Olay!!!
Olay finally came out with a facial hair removal cream. This company is by far my favorite; it never lets me down. So needless to say when I opened up my package from Glamour, it was a sign from god. No more poking at my lip, tweezing or even threading. My relationship with them was over.
The first time I used the remover it didn’t really remove every hair on my lip. (I honestly think, I was afraid to really put a lot of cream on and I didn’t leave it on for the whole 8 minutes. So it was clearly an error on my part). However, the second time, a few days later, I touched up the ones that were left behind (mostly the corners). Now, the kit comes with a skin guarding balm, which is fabulous~it has a soft and silky feeling (this goes on beforehand). I honestly loved it!! It went on nice and smooth and it didn’t feel greasy at all. And I didn’t break out from it (not sure why I’m surprised by this, I never break out from anything by Olay, but you never know sometimes). After you apply the balm, you then put the hair removal cream on (make sure you’re not afraid to put it on there). I was expecting a little burning (like I’ve said, I’ve experienced this with other brands) and what do you know, voila, there was NO burning or awful smell either. It honestly felt like a cream on your face.
The whole prepping process was a great experience from beginning to end. As far as the time, make sure you do the full 8 minutes. The first time I did 6 and that’s how I ended up with a few stragglers. The only reason I honestly didn’t do the full 8, I wasn’t sure if I’d break out (shame on me for doubting Olay) haha, but the second time the full 8 minutes was better. And as an ending result this product worked like wonders!!!! It’s definitely going to be the way I remove hair from my lip from now on. And, it’s a great money saver 🙂 Who doesn’t love that!?
I’m so glad I got to try out this product and Olay hasn’t let me down yet. Their products just keep amazing me!!!
Thanks again Glamour for sending me another fabulous product!!
