Nair for Hair : No-Mess Removal

Screen Shot 2016-10-12 at 3.53.41 pm

I have long been a fan of hair removal, and traditionally I am a waxer – I have my own facial and body wax kits (hello google and youtube) and I am predominantly self taught in the hair removal game. I have used hair removal creams in the past, but none have really ever lived up to their promises of pain-free and effective hair removal, but there was something about the Nair products I thought I would give a try.

Recently having launched their new Sweet Argon Oil range, I figured now was a perfect time to test them out. At a steal of a price (most their hair removal products are under $10.00) it was an easy sell, and the packaging was clean, pure and to the point.

They have two types of creams – the face and body and the precision face wand. I wanted to use both to see the effects and how well they both performed.

Before ANY type of hair removal, it is SO important to read all instructions from the packaging, for your own safety. Always do a test patch to ensure you aren’t allergic to the product and that it is safe to use – a must, especially for your face (try the bend in your elbow, or under your wrist). The instructions I grabbed are from the packaging, to ensure no confusion is met.


Smooth on thickly to cover hair. DO NOT RUB IN. After 3 – 4 minutes, test a small area. If hair is not easily removed, re-apply and wait longer. DO NOT EXCEED 10 MINUTES. For especially coarse or hard-to-remove hair, saturate hair with warm water for several minutes before, pat dry, then apply. DO NOT SWALLOW.


Rinse thoroughly with warm water using a washcloth. DO NOT RUB OR USE SOAP. Pat dry. Cap tube tightly when not in use.

The wand was an absolute breeze to use – much like a lip gloss, you just glide it over the area you wish the hair to disappear from. With my hair removal background, I decided to test it both in the direction of the hair growth (just like waxing) as well as the opposite direction too, and discovered both worked just as effective as the other. As long as there is enough product covering the hair and the application is through, the removal will take place. This can also be said for the face and body, in both scenarios. Works like a charm!

I followed these instructions directly, and it was really easy. I did notice that the finer hairs on my face had disappeared after about 4 minutes, but I did require another 4 minutes (after I rubbed the product off) for the more stubborn / thick hairs. It absolutely depends on what areas you are using it on, and how long you leave the cream on for (no longer than 10 minutes!). I didn’t have any red marks or insensitivity, and the skin was really smooth and soft after too (I can thank the organ oil for that!). I recommend applying your usual moisturiser (with SPF 50+) after, to help calm the skin after use (not that I had any irritation).

Another big note to mention is the colour and scent of the creams – both pink and delicious! Most wax products have an off-putting bleach or chemical smell to it, but the Nair hair removal creams were a delight to work with – especially being right under your nose! These products are suitable for legs, bikini, underarm and the face, as well as the upper lip, chin and cheeks with the applicator. Perfect for those who travel too, for the simplicity and ease of use of product. No messy waxes to clean up or heat, and can all be over in five minutes. Its almost too good to be true! As you can see, even Pierre loved it.

Overall I loved these products and am a true convert – I haven’t had any pimples after waxing like I normally do, nor any discolouration, reactions or anything other than smooth and soft skin. These are some really great products, so a job well done by Nair in my book.

You can find both the Precision Hair Removal Cream for Face and the Hair Removal Cream for Face and Body on their website, and all Nair products at a range of selected pharmacies, Woolworths and stores across Australia. There is a list here.

  • @BioOilAustralia has been there for me from the start - when I was a teenager and I acquired my first lot of stretch marks. And here we are again in full swing with these twinnies to help improve the appearance of those extra marks and make me feel like ‘me’ again. I just apply twice a day, morning and night, and it only takes two minutes, so I get more time with my little mate Carter. Those chubby cheeks get me every time! #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • My beautiful girl, Kennie Rae 💕 
  • It’s fair to say it’s been a mighty big weekend here in the #CoulthardAndCo household... @biozetattack gave me such an incredible (and terrifying!) opportunity to come along on their #BiozetAttackBrigade campaign at @toughmudderaustralia .. oh my goodness!! SO many thoughts about this and surprisingly I didn’t suck (or die!) at it! As you can see, I’m fairly excited about my new laundry additions and I had a blast shooting this campaign in own laundry, which is where I spend most of my life these days.. haha!! Oh the irony. Anyway, I was impressed with the results from my laundry loads (not so much my Tough Mudder injuries - swipe right!) but my crew on the day made it SO much fun! So many more pictures to come this week... there was no escaping that mud! 
PS. Anyone know a great massage place on the coast?? I’m in desperate need over here.. So sore. 😂😜 PPS. Congratulations @fabiancoulthard !! SO proud of you. Winner winner 🍾🏆👌🏼 #FabPack

  • My FIRST Mother’s Day 💝
How special is today? So magical 💫 
The meaning of this day has changed for me so much this year. Being a mother is so special and such a privilege. ‘WHAT DOES MOTHERHOOD MEAN TO YOU?’ It’s a question I asked in my stories yesterday and I had literally hundreds of replies from so many of you. Thank you for sharing with me your beautiful answers. How lucky am I to share this time with my family, as well as with all of you? If you didn’t already answer, what does it mean to you? I’ve written a BLOG post about it too, and included a little story and some beautiful images of my tribe too. So chuffed to have a day like today to celebrate with you this incredible life purpose and journey. Let’s hear it for our mums! 💝 #CoulthardAndCo
  • So from what feels like a lifetime ago, I used to model. Day in, day out, I would work out, go for a run, eat when ever I wanted (and what ever.. ahh metabolism!), have my make up and hair done, outfits given to me and I would pose from dawn until dusk and have beautiful and effortless photos flooding my inbox on the daily. So yes, a lifetime ago, this would have been a quick two-second snap at the end of my day.. not any more folks! This was done at about 10 at night, I had something on that day and left over make up. All the daily chores were done, kids in bed, dog fed and I thought, ‘I should probably get a photo for once.’ So, here you go, instagram. Here’s my ‘end of day’ EFFORTLESS photo for you. Haha, I am funny... I don’t think I did too bad, do you? 😂 *also, if you watch my stories you’d have noticed I had my brows microbladed last week. Thank you @mimsybeauty I’m in LOVE!! Get to see her girls, you won’t be disappointed 😘🖤 #BeckyLamb #CoulthardAndCo
  • Kennie knows how to make me smile! Now that I’m a Mum, I find my time being consumed more and more by this little cheeky grin and dressing her in the cutest outfits I can find.. but I still need ‘me time’ and I am always after those products that will get this bod looking and feeling its best. @BioOilAustralia gives me the control back and helps improve the appearance of my stretch marks in just two minutes a day. It lets me feel like me again with smooth and soft skin.  #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
  • THIS IS NOT A DRILL. It’s actually just a little reindeer named Carter... I’ve given him a cuteness rating of 9.7/10 😂 This little guy is my happy baby, always giggling, looking around and keeping me on my toes. He’s a typical boy - easily distracted, needs constant stimulation and knows how to make his Mama’s heart melt..! Like this.. haha! He was born a little 4’10 and he was such a little fighter from the moment he arrived. Always being smaller than his sister, I think he has a point to prove. We love you little guy, - the biggest, sweetest, curious little character I’ve had the pleasure of meeting 💙 @cartercoulthard #coulthardandco
  • Mackenzie Rae Coulthard. Kennie. Kennie Ken Ken. Little Kennie Wennie. Grumpy Ken. (The last one is my favourite!). I wonder if she knows how loved she really is. Do any of us? Probably not. This little princess was sleeping through well before her brother, and she has only ever woken us up once (Her brother would wake us and we would just feed her at the same time). If you’ve ever wondered what the textbook baby looked like, here she is. Always patient, so observant and only cries when there is a genuine problem. I think she has experienced life before now, she’s been here before. If this was your first and only baby, you’d definitely be going back for more 😂 
I also love dressing her in girly outfits.. this bow is so cute too. Courtesy of @blondesinbows 💕
I’ve been thinking of writing letters to my children.. have you done this? What are your tips to doing so? Are there any sets I can buy to make it easier? 
Also thinking of posting photos of these two on their own accounts.. what do you think? #CoulthardAndCo
