    I used hair removal cream 3 days ago - and I am already getting stubble! I was expecting alot longer than 3 days. Haven't got the packet anymore - does anyone know how long it should last for?
  2. Not sure how long it should last for, but never lasts more than 2/3 days with me.
  3. Think it depends on the hair thickness, I used to use it (then couldn't stand the smell anymore!) and it lasted my fair hair 4-5 days

    It probably depends how fast your hair grows! If I'm doing extra hair removal round the bikini area ready for holidays I find it needs doing again quite quickly and repeat two or three times in the fortnight before I go away. After that it seems to last for a while.
  5. The creams remove hair that has grown. The problem is that hairs grow, stop growing and then fall out in a cycle, so you won't get the ones that are just about to spring into life, as it were. That's why you look like you've got regrowth - it's the ones that were waiting in the wings! If you do it every 2/3 days for a week or ten days, you should have zapped them all and then get a bit longer before they reappear. Or you could just buy a razor....!
