It’s not often that I get excited about any sort of facial hair removing, unless it’s the thought of lasering it all away. But I am legitimately excited about the new Olay Duo Kit, because it includes a new balm that changes everything.
I know, it sounds extreme. But seriously, nothing like this exists out there like it. What makes it so unusual? It’s the balm that you apply before using the depilatory cream. It essentially guards the skin so that none of the depilatory touches your actual skin, saving you from tender spots and, heaven forbid, chemical burns from products left on the area just a minute too long (anyone ever had that? It’s so awful, let me tell you). This is especially important since we are dealing with your FACE, am I right?
The procedure is simple – apply the balm, then apply the cream. The balm comes in a tube, kind of like a lipgloss, so you can apply it easily. The depilatory cream also comes in a tube with a slanted applicator so you don’t have to touch it directly with your fingers. However, it can be challenging to get enough on to make it work effectively.
Remember, with depilatory creams, you need a solid layer of it, and you don’t want to see any skin beneath. Leave it on for the recommended amount of time, remove with a tissue, and you’re done.
The kit can be a bit pricey in drugstores, so check it out here at the P&G e-store. If you do purchase it or anything else, I might get a few pennies, and it will be much appreciated. There might be some other cool deals in there, too, if you’re interested, like 10% off now through 8/31/12, and free shipping on orders over $25. Be sure to check out the Olympic themed items while you’re there.
