Skin is visibly hair free in 8 minutes

Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo is a specially formulated, gentle alternative to waxing. This two-step system effectively removes fine to medium facial hair on the upper lip and jaw line.


Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo For Fine to Medium Hair

This hair removal system is designed to leave your skin beautifully soft, smooth and visibly hair-free in just 8 minutes. The Skin Guarding Balm and Hair Removal Cream work together for gentle removal of fine to medium facial hair from the upper lip, chin and jaw areas in two easy steps.


How to use Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo


Apply Skin Guarding Balm

First, lightly swipe the Skin Guarding Balm ONCE ONLY across the middle of the areas you wish to treat. Apply a thin layer to ensure effective hair removal. 

Second, use your fingers to massage the Skin Guarding Balm into your skin, going beyond the area you wish to treat. Massage for 20 seconds in a circular motion. Effective massage ensures there is a thin layer to keep the Hair Removal Cream from coming in direct contact with your skin, while ensuring the balm doesn’t overly coat any hairs you want to remove.


Apply Hair Removal Cream

Squeeze the Hair Removal Cream onto your fingertip (small grape size for upper lip treatment) and immediately smooth over the area to be treated (on top of the balm), covering it completely with a thick layer. Do not rub it in. Use only with the Skin Guarding Balm provided. Wash hands immediately and thoroughly. Wait for 6-8 minutes. Leave on longer for thicker hair, but do not exceed 10 minutes. Remove Hair/Cream 

After 6-8 minutes, gently remove cream with a tissue or cotton ball (do not rub excessively). Rinse your skin thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.

I absolute love this product!

I have fine blonde hair on my chin, upper lip and and sides of my chin. I read the reviews and I was a little skeptic to use for some not so good reviews. But I know Olay products are good. I had used them for 30 years and I love them. Anyway, I went and I bought it and follow the instructions exactly as it said and work perfectly. I will recommend this product 100%. Thank you Olay!

Use it correctly and it works

This is a very effective product. If it does not remove any hair than you probably used too much balm or maybe need the course hair remover. It completely removed all my facial hair and left my skin feeling smooth not irritated. The results lasted a long time too. I do recommend this product.

No, I do not recommend this product.

don't waste the money

Don't waste your money like I did, I followed the instructions to the letter. Left the product on for full amount of time and it removed no hair at all - zero! Not a single one!! I am very disappointed in this product. I was really hoping I finally found something easier than tweezers.

No, I do not recommend this product.
