    I'd like to know about this, too. I want to remove hair on arms and it's better to know more about this.
    does Johnson baby cream work on that?
    anyone who knows please share the experience with us. many thanks. :)

    I have used veet for 2 times,it's ok up to now but confused if it is really harmfull then better to stop it. Personally I don't think any moisturizer would change the effects caused by hair removal cream.
    Will like to know more from you ladies!
    Thanks

    i used it only once, i dont remember the brand but it was meant of very sensitive skin and i still regret it. It left a patch no amount of healing could fix. I might be an exception to get such bad result. But i can never recommend hair removal to anybody.waxing might hurt initially but after 3-4 sitting it will be a cakewalk.

    Yes skin does become a bit dark if using hair removing cream often specially underarms. With waxing the hair does not grow back faster, but with hair removeing cream, the hair growth is faster which means you have to use the cream more frequently.

    Always use any mositurising cream after using a hair removal cream. I use Fem. Noticed that I have to leave it on for a shorter period ( a couple of minutes lesser) as compared to other brands.

    i dont think any good quality creams will change the colour of our skin.Go for a branded one. But we have to do patch test before start using it. For that first apply a little on the back side of the palm and wait for few seconds, If no reaction is seen, then u can safely start using it

    Many shop bought hair removal creams do often darkened skin with prolonged use due to the harsh chemicals they use.

    The newer organic, all natural creams don't tend to have the same affect. Plus they provide a permanent solution to hair removal so you don't need to use them over the same prolonged lengths of time.

    Hi,

    It extremely true, because if your going to use them continuously, it might be chance to get dark color on your skin wherever you apply lotions or creams. So try to take "Laser Hair Removal Reduction" for permanent solution.
