Olay Hair Removal Review

Olay Hair Removal Duo for Medium-Coarse Hair

Gentle Hair Removal for Medium to Coarse Facial Hair

-Facial Hair Removal Facts-

According to a recent Olay global survey of 6,600 women:
Women are as concerned about unwanted facial hair as they are about their fine lines and wrinkles.

41% of American women think visible facial hair (in certain areas) is not socially acceptable.

85% of women remove facial hair occasionally

4% of women remove facial hair daily

Healthy, youthful looking skin helps define female beauty, and research shows that unwanted facial hair prevents many women from feeling as feminine as they would like, impacting their quality of life and confidence. Seeing a clear unmet need for a simple way to remove facial hair, Olay introduced Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo for Fine to Medium Hair in July 2011 that quickly became the brand’s second best-selling product in the U.S. Facial hair can be particularly bothersome for women with medium to coarse hair, as it is thicker, more noticeable and stiff to the touch, making the skin’s surface feel uneven. Facial hair removal can leave women with visible tell-tale signs such as irritation and redness that give away their “beauty secret.” Olay’s specially-formulated 2-step system helps minimize* redness and irritation, and given the original Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo’s overwhelming success, Olay is expanding the line with an effective  solution to remove medium to coarse hair, leaving behind beautifully smooth, visibly hair-free skin.

Introducing the NEW Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo for Medium to Coarse Hair, a two-step system designed to gently yet effectively remove noticeable, stubborn facial hair on the upper lip and jaw line, while minimizing* redness and irritation.


My Impression: Let's face it sometimes as women we have less than stellar appearances. Hormones and other factors can leave you with hair in places you'd just rather not have it. I have this issue. Due to my hormones and having PCOS I deal with hair growth on my face just in certain areas and I've used hair removal creams for along time, but one thing that never fails is the dreaded break-outs I get and irritation from the creams. They always burn my skin and leave me with redness that's hard to cover up. With this 2-step system the protective glide on stick of waxy gel helps to create a barrier between your face and the hair removal itself so that it only removes the hair and not sink directly into your pores thus causing irritation. I've been using this for a couple weeks now and it's not caused me any pain. The downside to the product is that it's pricey and it will be up to you to decide whether the price is worth it. For me to not have the irritation, redness, and pain from the other creams outweigh the price, but all in all I think this is a great system and will continue to use.
