Does veet work or any of them creams?

I made the mistake when I was younger by shaving the top half of my legs and now the backs of my legs are hairy and I don't like to shave often because I get razor burn and it hurts. I know that if I would keep shaving that it would probably go away but I wanted to try them creams. I have tried Nair but I just couldn't stand the smell but his was a while back around when if came out so it only had one smell to it.

So I wanted to know what cream works best to get rid of hair and keep it off for a least longer then 2 days.

  • They don't work at all for me. It mostly depends on the thickness and coarseness of your hair.

  • They don't work well for me. It only takes of the hair is small patches and leaves the rest of the hair to soft to shave.

  • Nair has worked for me for up to 2 weeks. A friend of mine swears by Veet.

  • no, it uses chemicals to DISOLVE the hair above the follicle which typically leads to irritation and hair growing back quickly.
