I tried this out for the first time today. I've never tried any other face creams. I applied a layer with a Qtip and left the cream on for 10 minutes (max) I wiped the cream off with a make up wipe. The hairs were removed, it worked! However, this made my skin irritated. My skin usually doesn't get irritated this easily, like I said before I've never used any face cream ever. So maybe my face is a little sensitive to face creams. I'll try this again, maybe I had too much of the cream on, or I left it on for too long which is max 10 minutes.
