Hair Removal Wars: Depilatory Cream vs Shaving

Hair Removal Wars: Depilatory Cream vs Shaving | Nad's Hair Removal Blog

Sure, it’s tempting to shave away unwanted body hair in the shower, but there’s also the risk of nicks, cuts and irritation from the blade.

Don’t get us started on post-shave stubble, which in some cases appear in as little as 12 hours. Yep, when it comes to body hair removal, shaving only cuts the hair off at the skin’s surface, so that smooth-skin result you’re craving only lasts a little while.

Enter, Nad’s Sensitive Hair Removal Cream, which is formulated with natural extracts of Melon, Aloe Vera, Avocado Oil and Honey to soothe and protect sensitive skin, while effectively removing unwanted body hair in as little as four minutes. An added bonus is the Odour Elimination Technology, which means there is less of that overpowering smell that’s previously been associated with hair removal creams.

Hair Removal Wars: Depilatory Cream vs Shaving | Nad's Sensitive Hair Removal Cream

Here, Nad’s beauty expert Natalie Ismiel shares her thoughts on why Hair Removal Cream beats shaving, every time!

1. Hair Removal Cream leaves skin feeling smoother for longer

While a razor shaves the hair off at the skin’s surface, your depilatory cream will dissolve the hair. This means when it grows back, it is more tapered and natural, with less of that harsh ‘stubbly’ feel. With this in mind, Nad’s also developed a depilatory cream for the face. Perfect for those who don’t want to wax sensitive facial areas, Nad’s Facial Hair Removal Cream contains Almond Oil and Calendula to soften and soothe delicate skin on the face as it removes unwanted hair.

2. Hair Removal Cream comes with zero risk of cuts and razor burn

There’s no risk of scrapes, nicks, cuts and razor burn when you use hair removal cream. Nad’s Sensitive Hair Removal Cream has a no drip formula, is painless and quick to use. It’s ideal for use just before you jump in the shower.

3. There’s at least “Four Minutes Me Time” built into every application of hair removal cream

Yep, you can take four minutes of quiet time behind the bathroom door while your hair removal cream gets to work - give your eyebrows a quick tidy, floss and brush your teeth, or file your fingernails into shape. Try doing any of those things with a razor in your hand and, well, see Point Two!

In conclusion: hair removal cream does take a little longer than shaving, but it leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and hair free for a little longer than a quick whisk around with the razor.
