Having olive skin and dark brown hair has meant I’ve had to look into hair removal options much earlier than most. I began shaving my legs as a teen and when I moved into my early 20s began to notice some fuzz on my face, namely my lip and chin.
I started waxing as a longer lasting hair removal option but found it difficult to find the perfect wax strip as many I tried would easily irritate my skin leaving me red and blotchy. On some occasions they could also cause breakouts of sore red pimples the following day.
When I was introduced to the Nair wax strips range I was very keen and excited to try them as they’re specifically designed for sensitive skin. I used the large wax strips on my legs and the mini wax strips on areas of my face.
I quickly found that one of my favourite things about Nair strips is that you don’t need to rub them before application. You simply pull them apart and they are ready to use which means you don’t disrupt the layer of wax, making contact even better.

The strips were very effective as they did not leave any stray hairs behind. I never had to go over a section twice which meant I used less strips in the process and avoided irritating my skin with repeated usage.
The size of the strips makes them very easy to use and the wax itself smells great. After use my skin feels smooth and soft and I can get rid of any wax residue left behind with the after-care wipes. I leave the product from the aftercare wipes on the skin to further soothe the area.
