I’m just going to come out and say it–I’m kind of hairy. There, I’ve publicly admitted it and I’m ready to move forward. This is easier said than done but I have a feeling I will be happier than ever now that I’ve tried the Nair products I was sent. (I’m so grateful!)
Would you believe me if I told you I have to shave every day to keep up the level of smooth-ness I prefer? It is insane! If for some reason my kids are crazy and I have to skip my daily shower my legs and underarms turn into a prickly mess. I always say I have a five-o-clock shadow–but it isn’t on my face. It has always been a hassle and I have more than one bad memory of being forced to go to gym class with stubble on my legs. Embarrassing. It’s also no fun when my husband comments on it (in the nicest way he knows how) and I turn beet red. Sorry!
Hair removal has always given me problems, I am forced to shave every day yet I always get ingrown hairs and my skin looks irritated. I used to think it was just my downfall in life–you know, something I will always be forced to deal with. I will go through patches of time in which I’ll do my best to not shave every day, or to wear capri pants during the summer a few times a week so I don’t embarrass myself, but it was so tedious!
Depilatory. Do you know what that means? I didn’t…but I’m glad I do now. My irritated, sensitive, razor burned, and ingrown hair filled legs and armpits are glad, too. Depilatory is a type of hair removal. Or, “an agent for removing hair, wool, or bristles” according to Merriam Webster. It breaks down the hair, so it is easy to wipe away from the skin, leaving baby smooth legs and wherever else you like to use it. After two weeks of using Nair I’ve notices the irritation on my legs is significantly less drastic, it looks like it is healing away. I also only have to use it twice a week, not sure why but it is great! I’m going to go into more detail about the two Nair products I was sent–they are both like heaven.
If you’re like me, and dread being smooth for summer, keep reading because summer is approaching and the time for showing off more skin and wearing cute shorts is upon us. The Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Total Care Body Trio and Face Trio are the newest depilatories to join the Brazilian Spa care like, and are inspired by Brazilian beauty and are infused with mango butter and açai berry which have moisturizing properties, and mineral-rich clay that help to purify the skin.
Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Total Care™ Face Trio
Oh, facial hair. If its not my eyebrows it is random hairs or the peach fuzz above my lip. Don’t giggle–every woman experiences this every now and then! The Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Total Care™ Face Trio is easy to use, in just three steps:
- Step 1: The first step is the pre-balm, which coats the skin to help minimize irritation and redness
- Step 2: The second step is the depilatory. There’s no drying time so you can apply the depilatory immediately after using the pre-balm.
- Step 3: After removing the depilatory product, apply the moisturizer, which is similar to a typical facial moisturizer. This will help neutralize the pH of the skin, bringing it back to the normal level.
My favorite thing to use this on is that area between my eyebrows, where the dreaded unibrow grows. If I’m not ready to do a full brow-scaping I can take the excess hair off of that section and be done. It is quick, painless, and extremely easy. I also love to use it on the random patches of hair that grow between my eyebrows and my hairline…they have no rhyme or reason but are easily taken care of with this!

Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Shower Total Care™ Body Trio
I use this one more than the face version, maybe it’s because I’m always fighting with having smooth hair? This one is also easy to use:
- Step 1: The pre-wipe contains mineral oil and chamomile to prepare your skin before removing hair.
- Step 2: Apply the depilatory, which is resistant to water through emollients similar to those found in waterproof sunscreens so it will resist runoff while you shower. Keep the area out of the direct stream of water.
- Step 3: After the hair is removed, apply soothing post-use gel with Aloe Vera for a perfect finish.
This stuff is magic. I love it. I always deal with extremely dry skin after shaving, this is my biggest rave–my skin doesn’t cry out for moisture after I complete my hair removal routine…in fact I can actually go without lotion if I have to. I also don’t have to worry about being “smooth” as often, it is so nice! I have been recommending these products to everyone since I started using it.
Suggested Retail Price: $13.99
So, if you are in the market for a way to effectively keep up with your smooth-ness, and summer fun–check out this new line from Nair! You won’t be disappointed!
