Nair Sensitive Formula Glide-On Hair Remover Cream 100ml
Less Mess than a tube formula
I bought this because I did not want to use the tube formulas with the spatula that are available. The name of the product is slightly deceptive in the sense that I thought it was a roll on type of hair removal cream. In fact it is like a twist up cream deodorant I use. I was expecting a roller ball type of hair removal which would glide the product on. Not a twist up and smooth on product. Other than that it does a mess free job, does not smell too bad and easy to use. The price is a bit steep for the amount you get, which is 100ml. So I would think about buying another one, but would not say that I would for certain.

This product is one of my fav's! Love it! Removes any hair around the upper lip area in just a short time of three mins. Easy application, no mess! Also, growth of the hair back is slow, I personally only have to apply a few times per year which makes it great value for a low price and hair does not appear stubbly or thicker than before! The only problem is, if your skin is very sensitive a small rash/spotty area may appear around the places you have applied the product.

Perfect for underarms and bikini area
I love this product - I bought a bottle on a whim last year, and now I can't live without it. You twist the bottom, and the cream comes out of the top, which wasn't quite what I imagined from the description, but is still easier to use than a tube.
Since swapping to this from shaving, I have had no ingrown hairs in my bikini area (which apart from looking rank can also be quite painful, as well as tricky to remove for yourself at times) which is reason enough to recommend it. It's not as stinky as the depilatory creams from my youth, and the applicator makes it easy to cover as much or as little of the bikini area as you choose without the wastage you can get with a tube. I tend to wipe off the applicator after use with a damp cloth, but there's very little wastage with this method.
As the cost per ml is higher than a tube, I personally would save this just for fiddly areas if I was going to use cream everywhere - I think it would be a waste to use it on your legs. It's perfectly designed for underarms and the bikini area, but is also handy for the sides of the face or the upper lip.
Another point to note is that if you do wish to use it on your netherest regions, in a manner not recommended by the manufacturer but increasingly popular amongst women today, it works quickly, and takes about two to three minutes to begin to sting a little - if you remove it at the first sign of a sting, you'll find it has worked quite well, and after effects will be minimal. If you leave it on that area the full five minutes, you'll be aware of your hair removal for a good six hours or so after! But - it's less problematic in the perianal area than anything else I've tried: there was a wonder product aimed at the head hair of black men - however, they have changed their formula in recent years, so Nair is now the most effective and least uncomfortable cream depilatory out there.
Bottom line: this works and is the least wasteful method of depilating those hard to reach or smaller areas. I find a bottle lasts me about three months - which is not too bad as I am definitely a maximalist hair remover! - and the effects are long-lasting.
