Reader Review of the Day: Sally Hansen Brush-On Hair Remover Creme

When you're looking for skincare products, there are some things you don't want to see in a review. Take the phrase "chemical burn," for example. Those two words came up more than once in reviews of Sally Hansen Brush-On Hair Remover Creme, a product that didn't get much love from readers. Take it from hlisa:

This product may work well for some people, but definitely not for me! I did a small patch on my inner arm, which resulted in some redness. I then did a small test on the outer corner of my upper lip. Yowza! I wound up looking like I was on the road to herpes-lip. And it didn't even take the hair off that area. Be wary, especially if you have sensitive skin. And do a patch test!

Patch tests are indeed the key to working with chemical hair remover, so, you know, heed her advice. Is there something you like or loathe? Let us know about it by heading to Product Reviews and you could be our featured post of the day.

I got red bumps with white heads all over my skin area where applied but not until about 4 days later. What caused that?

I tried this stuff out because I thought removing the hair above my lip would be best, but the stuff doesn't even work! But then again, none of the hair remover cremes worked on my legs, even the extra strength stuff. I ended up getting some Jolen creme bleach and it has worked perfectly for the little hairs on my lip for years now.

This didn't work for me. It looked like my upper lip got badly sunburned. It was so embarrassing because it really drew attention to the area which was not what I was going for.

The patch test thing never worked for me. I would do a patch test and everything would go peachy. But then, I'd do half my leg and get burned. Go figure!
