Products with dead sea mud are quite sought after, since they come with natural ingredients and rare minerals. Now, we get to experience the same benefits in a hair removal cream. Isn’t that delightful? A very close friend of mine suggested I try this as she is scared of getting her bikini line waxed or shaved, and relies on this cream. And, praise the lord, does this perform. The package comes with instructions on the timing for each body part, and I followed it to the ‘T’. What I got was silky smooth, hairless and exfoliated skin! Yes, it also works like a light scrub.

I have to say, the name fascinated me. I am quite scared of waxing my bikini and sensitive area, (yes, I am one of those) and constantly look out for products that can keep me feeling clean and hygienic without giving me any pain.

L’Oreal Magic Smooth Hair Removal Cream:
So, one day, I was lazily surfing through an online shopping portal after I added a few items to my shopping cart, and pop came this tube on the ‘recommended list’ and I was like “Whoa, what. L’Oreal has a hair removal cream, I’ve got to try th is one”. Side topic, I am not a L’Oreal aficionado in particular, but I wanted to buy this hair removing cream only because I was pleasantly surprised. Bam, added to shopping cart, checked out and a couple of days later this arrived. Did a patch test, and it worked well. And, then on a ‘at-home-spa-day’ I took this one out and did the needful. And, was it MAGIC or what, just like its name. It’s particularly marketed/targeted for getting a bald head, razor free shaved look. But, hey, it works for my arms and legs, beautifully. If you are looking for a quick (4-minute) process, this is your cream. Price in India: Rs.1,346 for 6 ounce.
WOW Hair Vanish:
Okay, I might be cheating a little since this is not really a hair remover, but it’s a deterrent. Which means, it is to be used after you have removed your hair (by waxing/cream). Can be used across the body, it reduces hair regrowth and repeated use can delay hair growth for weeks together. This one is paraben free, formulated with natural herb and plant extracts. Price in India: Rs.800 for 100ml. Availability – Online
I know most of these seem to be on the pricey side, and I did struggle with putting them on this list. But, when you are putting together the best hair removal creams in India, you will have to put the ones that you have used, and liked. These have worked for me, time and again, and I know every product reacts differently with skin types, pigments, etc. and the results can be subjective, too. But, I have loved using them and I hope you will benefit from them, as well.
On that note, here’s signing off from this post, and do share your comments, views and any hair removing creams that you’ve tried, liked and would recommend. I am always up for some ‘hair removing’!
