Beauty Wars: Hair Removal Cream vs Shaving

Beauty Wars: Hair Removal Cream vs Shaving

Beauty Wars - Hair Removal Cream vs Shaving

Hmm, hair removal cream vs shaving. Which would you opt for? Ok, let’s not beat around the bush – whipping out the razor in the shower and whisking off hair here and there is fast.

But it’s not all silk and roses as it also means you’ll probably be doing the same thing two days later! Day two of shaved legs feels more like little rose thorns, so you’re back in the shower whipping around the legs again. And again the next day because the crazy stubble-on-stubble itch of your legs resting together kept you tossing and turning throughout the night. Shaving cuts the hair off at the skin’s surface, making it grow back faster, and spikier than other hair removal solutions.

And don’t get us started on the bikini line!

So, hair removal cream vs shaving... anyway, by now you’re probably thinking, ‘of course Nad’s is going to say hair removal cream is better that shaving… they don’t sell razors! And you’d be right.

But if Nad’s founder, Sue Ismiel thought shaving was the best way to remove daughter Natalie’s excess arm hair, there’s a good chance we’d be in the razor business.

What we do know about the pros of shaving is that it’s fast. But do hair removal creams work as well as – if not better – than shaving?

We asked Nad’s beauty expert Natalie Ismiel to share her thoughts on hair removal cream vs shaving, and here's what she said:

1. Hair removal cream leaves skin feeling smoother for longer

While shaving cuts the hair off at the skin’s surface, depilatory creams like Nad’s Sensitive Hair Removal Cream dissolves the hair so it’s more tapered and natural as it regrows. This also makes depilatory creams more suitable for the face than shaving. Try Nad’s Facial Hair Removal Crème and remember to always read the instructions.

2. Hair removal cream comes with zero risk of cuts and razor burn 

It may not happen every time you shave, but when you nick yourself, it stings and bleeds and just keeps stinging and bleeding. Add razor burn to the mix and you’re going for maximum discomfort. There’s no risk of razor nasties with hair removal cream. However, if you feel that your skin is a little sensitive, try Nad’s Sensitive Hair Removal Cream and, as always, read the instructions before you begin. Our dream cream has a no drip formula is painless and super-fast; ideal for use just before you jump in the shower! The dream cream is formulated with natural extracts of Melon, Aloe Vera, Avocado Oil and Honey which help to soothe and protect the skin. An added bonus is that we’ve introduced an Odour Elimination Technology (this means it’s a lot less stinky). Yay!

3. There’s at least 4 minutes of ‘me-time’ built into every application of hair removal cream

Bet you didn’t expect that in a tube of hair removal cream! Four minutes’ quiet time behind the bathroom door is enough to give your eyebrows a quick tidy, listen to your favourite song at least once or send a text to organise a lunch date. Try doing any of those things with a razor in your hand and… well, see point two above. ;-)

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.

Don’t take our word for it! See what others have to say about hair removal creams vs shaving…

“The Nad’s Sensitive Hair Removal Cream is so easy to use; you just cannot go wrong with this product!”

-Annyex. Beautyheaven

“My legs were hair-free and smooth to touch. I was highly impressed!”

-Beautybabe 140194. Beautyheaven

“For me, I always seem to get red little lumps EVERYWHERE after I shave.”

-PandaMonium7789 Beautyheaven

“The only problem is that I find myself cutting my legs whenever I'm shaving and it's been very painful! Just yesterday I cut myself on my knee and before that I cut the middle of my leg.”

-MissM19 Beautyheaven

Kick start smooth hair free skin for 2014!

Here are our top 3 tips on how you can kick start hair free skin for 2014!  



1. Invest in a hair removal method! 
Choose one that’s going to be most comfortable for you whether that may be hair removal cream, wax strips or laser hair removal! 

2. With any form of hair removal there comes a degree of ingrown hair; 
Prevent this with Nad’s Ingrow solution!

3. To further assist with the release of ingrown hair, regularly exfoliate your skin. Wait 24 hours after hair removal to begin exfoliation so as not to irritate your skin!

Wax with confidence!

Last month Sue Ismiel, CEO and inventor of Nad’s chatted live with our loyal fuzzy Facebook fans answering questions of the waxing kind!
 
A particular question that stood out was when waxing visible places on our bodies, how do we avoid getting the line between the waxed area and the not waxed area? Here’s a great tip from Sue Ismiel herself! 

Waxing tip!

Dab the area with a wax strip rather than removing hair in a clean sweep. This helps blend the two areas!

Common eyebrow shaping problems – How to fix them!

If you are looking for eye-catching eyebrows, the unique Nad's Facial Wand Eyebrow Shaper is the easiest way to remove unwanted facial hair and get salon quality results at home.


Eyebrow Problem: You have no arch.
Nad's Tip: Follow your natural shape, prevent ingrown hairs and maintain precision.
Use the natural space between your eyebrows and eyelid to determine the shape your brow should take.

Eyebrow Problem: Your eyebrows are too short, patchy, or over plucked
Nad's Tip: Pencil them in until you grow them out again. Don't panic if you've accidently gone too far, use a pencil that matches your hair colour to fill in the gaps. But be careful not to press too hard as eyebrows that are too dark for your skin tone can give a harsh look to your whole face.

Now what i love is that its easy to mirror both sides evenly as your doing sections rather then one by one. So it took me 5-10 minutes rather then 30-40min. Also its easy to remove excess gel with a wipe or warm water, the baby wipe did just fine for me.- Tara's Treats

Nad’s Beauty Tip – Applying and Removing False Lashes!

Nicole Thompson, Senior MAC Cosmetics artist recommends to always allow for the glue on your falsies to go tacky before applying them! 

MORE TIPS ON APPLYING AND REMOVING FALSE EYELASHES:
- Measure the length of the false lash to make sure it fits your eye shape. This will avoid the corner drooping or worse, the end poking into your eye!
- Apply the lash to the base of your natural lash line on top of your actual lashes, not on the eyelid
- See a gap showing on the eyelid skin between your own lashes and the false ones? Don't pull off the strip and start again; you can just fill in the gap with black liner 
- Before taking off the rest of your make up, take off the false eyelashes first! To stay up to date with the latest Nad’s beauty tips visit our Facebook page or follow us on TwitterJoin #nads on Instagram! ...read more
