I use this to rid of my facial hair. I was always so nervous to use nair on my face, as I don't really like the smell and I have really sensitive skin. But I decided to just give it a go, and it worked wonders. I left it on for 5 min the first time, and I know I can leave it on a minute longer the next time. It left my face so soft to the touch, and didn't break me out at all!
