“Hairy backs and long days spent on the beach are not...”

Good Points
This product comes in a very attractive bottle, and seems promising...

Bad Points
... it's not

General Comments
Hairy backs and long days spent on the beach are not two expressions that go hand in hand. With the lovely weather right around the corner and the hairy pale back having spent a long winter under a jacket, I have to say that I was looking forward to swimming, but was somewhat intimidated by this as well. So, to this, I did what seemed right. I had heard about this mystical product that made hair disappear, and this was very interesting. I went out and bought a bottle, quickly came home, took a shower and tried it out. (Now if I'm actually here, it's for the reason that what I am about to tell you is true and very important, since I never write reviews...) I applied the cream exactly as it stated on the package waited for exactly 4 mins, not 3 because I wanted to make sure that it was all gone. After the long wait, I removed the product as directed and glanced at the final product. Hairless at last! But this did not come without anyway pain. I had an unsightly rash on my entire back, and I had the impression that someone had just pored a bucket of hot boiling water over my back. (... and yes, to all of you out there who are telling themselves that I should have done a small test before applying it to my entire back: TRUST ME, I did it) After two weeks, it had cured and I shaved instead of taking the risk of doing this over again, until today. I had not shaven in a while (4 days) because I'm very busy and tired and have not had the time. So I cracked out the old bottle of Veet and after a long moment of hesitation, I reapplied it. I did this only because I managed to convince myself that I had badly applied it the first time and that this time, it would not hurt at all. So I did it. One minute, two, three, four, and I quickly removed it. I am now writing this comment on my bed with my back covered in Soothenol, because I am having once again the same reaction and regret greatly having done it once again.

This message goes out to those who are hesitant to use this product, and I have to say that if you do decide to use it, make sure you leave a good 3-4 days ahead of you for your body to heal, so you don't have to go out into public with your bod in a rash.

I am a swimmer, and now have to go swimming with my back covered with a red aching rash and short stubbly unsightly hairs.

Hope this helps,
