So, summer skirt season is almost here & I decided on a whim to purchase this product. Living in Wisconsin where winter is long and shaving legs is not a priority during the winter months-I decided I needed to do something. I purchased this @ Walmart thinking I didn't want to clog my drain with hair from shaving. The instructions were pretty simple. Apply the lotion to the area where you don't want the hair, don't rub it in, & let it sit for 3 minutes or longer depending on your hair type and wipe it off with a towel and shower afterwards. I applied the cream on my hairy legs and started checking after 3 minutes. I left it on for 5 minutes and started wiping it off with a towel and the hair started wiping of no problem! The one thing that I was not a fan of was the smell... Nothing can quite cover up the smell of hair being singed off the leg. After all of this, my legs were pretty smooth. . . That lasted about 2 days & then my legs started feeing prickly.
