This product didn't remove any hair after 5 minutes, but worked after leaving it on for 10 minutes. It had a menthol/minty smell. I think I might stick to products that I could use in the shower just because that's more convenient for me instead of sitting on the bathroom floor for 10 minutes. This product requires you to use a wash cloth to remove the hair which gets messy. The hair comes off fairly easier with a cloth but not with your hands or running water. Not sure if I just have sensitive skin, but I experienced a light stinging feeling with this product. Aside from that, it did the job and left my legs silky smooth!
