I recently bought a cream for removing facial hair for sensitive skin & whilst it worked brilliantly it burnt the left corner of my mouth, I did a patch test & followed instructions. Has anyone used hair removal facial cream before?

  • Hope you have managed to find a safer alternative of hair removal.

  • I think anything that melts hair can’t be good.

  • I would suggest contacting the manufacturer as they may be able to assist you. They will also want to know about the problem with the product. Place something soothing and gentle on the area.

  • There are harsh chemicals in those creams I wouldn’t personally do it again. I either pluck the hairs out or treat myself to a wax by going to a salon.

  • got to be so careful with that stuff, and not leave on for too long….aloe vera for the burn

  • you have to be very careful of this stuff I burns easily, I would use a gently pubic one in this area

  • It shouldn’t burn, so I would definitely contact the manufacturer and tell them of your problem. They should be concerned enough to contact you, and will probably want to know if you still have the container the cream came in, so they can get a batch number, and investigate if there was a production problem. If you need something to soothe your skin, I’d recommend a small Aussie company called “Caroline’s Skin Care”. She specializes in creams for eczema, psoriasis, dry skin and other problems, and may be able to recommend something to help you.

  • I haven’t had a problem before, but it was a long time ago that i used it

  • Thats horrible! I have bought some before but I had no problems with it.

  • oh god that sounds horrible, call the manufacturer and complain. use pure lavender oil on the burn

  • I find these creams harmful. However, you shouldn’t have burns. I’d call the manufacturer.

  • Just be mindful of all the chemicals in these products, and always follow instructions perhaps try some pawpaw cream on your burnt areas?

  • I have never used before – thanks ladies for all the tips

  • if your going to use it on your face, I would use the bikini one, it is less harsh

  • I would use lanolin on the burn all natural and the oil from fleece is fantastic for all burns
