If you recall, I bought Palmer’s No Blade Cocoa Butter Facial Hair Remover back in December, but I was not keen to use it because of the bad smell. However, desperate times calls for desperate measures!! My Husband started saying, “Hi Tasha!” i.e. he was saying hello to my moustache!!!
I was a bit apprehensive but I bit the bullet and tested the smelly Palmer’s No Blade Cocoa Butter Facial Hair Remover. Here is a picture of the ingredients and the instructions on how to use it.
I applied a thick layer of the smelly stuff on one corner of my upper lip. Waited around for 4.5 minutes and then scraped the cream off with the spatula provided. I was surprised at how much hairs there were!!
Gross or what?
The area of skin where I had applied the Palmer’s facial hair remover was throbbing red. It was a tad itchy. As instructed, I washed off the area with cold water and patted it gently with cotton wool.
And then I examined the area closely. Pah!! There were still some stubborn hairs left.
I was disappointed that there was no aftercare cream to apply on the area because my skin was red and itchy and needed something soothing. So I dug out my old hair removal cream aftercare moisturiser and put some on.
In conclusion, Palmer’s No Blade Cocoa Butter Facial Hair Remover is not a product I would recommend.
- It did not remove all my facial hair even after I followed the instructions to a tee.
- It smells really bad.
- The thick brush which you are supposed to use to apply the cream worries me because of cross-contamination.
- The product was not kind to my sensitive skin, leaving it red and itchy.
- No aftercare soothing moisturiser.
- A thumbs down 2 out of 10
