*Warning: Close-ups of Kim's lip!
The Olay kit says you get up to 12 uses and costs around $20. Nair's is around $8 and says 20 pieces; however, those include large and small sizes. Another benefit to Olay's was that there was a Skin Guarding Balm. The instructions were:
|Skin Guarding Balm|
|applying Skin Guarding Balm|
1) Lightly apply the Skin Guarding Balm across the area you wish to treat. Massage balm into your skin in a circular motion for approximately 20 seconds. This ensures there is a pre-treatment layer to keep the Hair Removal Cream from coming in direct contact with your skin.

|Hair Removal Cream on upper lip (so sexy...)|
2) Apply a small dab of the Hair Removal Cream to your fingertip and immediately smooth over the area you wish to be treated. Cover it completely with a thick layer. Do not rub in. Wash hands immediately after. Let the cream sit for 6-8 minutes. Do not exceed 10 minutes.
After 6-8 minutes, gently remove cream with a tissue or cotton ball. Rinse your skin thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
I had slight redness on my upper lip and that's perhaps I didn't rub the balm around enough. I felt no burning, itching or soreness afterwards. It wiped off nicely and my skin was super smooth. I did have to tweeze a few hairs but that is typical. It says not to use around your eyebrow area but I used it on my unibrow and it worked quite nicely.
It has now been several days and my upper lip/eyebrow hair feel very smooth. I am very pleased with the results. Just wish the price wasn't so high!
Would I buy it again? Yes, but hopefully on sale or with a coupon.
