  • As long as it is used as directed I would not see a problem

  • Make SURE to do a small test patch first! That stuff can burn the living daylights out of you. I can't use it without getting blisters. So...yeah. Small test area first and wait 24 hours at least.

  • I have very sensitive skin and i can't use any of that stuff, it burns like crazy. so i would do a small test area first.

  • Okay as far she is doing under your supervision (for a couple of years)....

  • No. It's full of chemicals and I personally wouldn't use it for myself.

    Stick to a gentle olive oil soap and a razor; that's all that's needed and it's not toxic.

  • I don't see any problem in using it

  • Personally, I would never use a chemical hair remover on a young teen. Far better to teach her how to use a razor and shaving cream.

  • I used it for a while and loved it. Lasts longer than shaving!

  • my dd 13 uses nair hair removal BECAUSE everytime she used a razor she hacked up her leg, so the better option for her was the hair removal creams and i talk to her ped and thats what she a razor sometimes is not the best option.....OP choose whats right for your kid

  • I got horrible burns from Veet and others like it. I would rather just teach her how to shave correctly.
