We Tried It: Nair Cire Divine “Bye Bye Ouch!” Formula

Disclaimer: I’ve never waxed my own legs before. Just the thought of it freaks me out. So when I was told that Nair had a pain-free wax I was immediately interested. The summer is creeping up and so are our hemlines, which means flawless legs are a requirement. So I decided to ditch my fears and take the Nair Cire Divine’s Bye Bye Ouch! formula challenge.

Here’s how it went (and keep reading to find out how you can win big below!):

I followed the instructions on the Nair Cire Divine Microwave Resin Wax with Moroccan Argan Oil box  ($18.99 at well.ca) that said to heat the tub of wax for about two minutes. I was happy to learn that the wax is suitable for all skin types and works effectively to grip even the shortest hair close to the skin, ensuring full removal of the follicle from the root. Meaning you don’t have to grow your hair embarrassingly long in-between waxes.

I dipped the spatula in the hot wax until I had a good amount to apply to my leg. Because this is my first time I applied it to just a small area. I wasn’t quite ready to pull off all my hair at once. The wax felt warm, but not too hot, which was a relief! I waited for it to dry until it wasn’t too sticky to the touch.

nair wax

Here came the hard part. Getting the nerve to now rip it off. Luckily, the wax formula is made with a pro-sensitive complex containing 2% zinc oxide to help reduce the adherence to your skin. So I felt a little more comfortable than I would with any old wax.

I did it! Boy, was I impressed. The pain was so minimal, just a tiny prickle of the hair, but nothing that would have you running and screaming. This is because this new formula is supposed to desensitize your skin so you don’t feel the sensations associated with waxing.

As you can see it really got all my hair too! The worst is having to shave leftover strands of hair that the wax missed. Luckily, Nair did the job and I didn’t have to do that. Also, I was pleased that my skin wasn’t left feeling dry like it does with shaving, which is the Moroccan Argan Oil at work!

Here’s the result: Happy, sexy, smooth legs that are summer-ready!

Want to try Nair’s Cire Divine Bye Bye Ouch! formula? We’re giving away a kit to one lucky reader. To enter to win, comment below and tell us how you will be rocking your sexy legs this summer! (Contest ends June 18, 2015)

    I have always had to shave my legs every couple of days because it does not take long for my hair to grow back in. A product that would allow me not have to do this would be great, as I wear a lot of skirts to work during the summer time and shorts when I am not at work.
