How to Use

48 Hours Prior To Every Use:

Read and follow warnings and directions carefully. Conduct 48 -hour skin reaction test.


Apply Skin Guarding Balm

First, lightly apply the Skin Guarding Balm across the middle of the areas you wish to treat. Treat only once so that hairs aren't overly coated.

Massage Skin Guarding Balm

Use your fingers to massage the balm into your skin, going beyond the area you wish to treat. Massage for 20 seconds in a circular motion to form a thin pre-treatment layer that keeps the Hair Removal Cream from coming in direct contact with your skin.


Apply Hair Removal Cream

Apply a layer of Hair Removal Cream with the tube applicator tip or your fingertip (small grape size for upper lip treatment). Immediately smooth over the area to be treated. For effective hair removal, cover it completely with a thick enough layer that you can't see your skin. Do not rub it in. Use only with the Skin Guarding Balm provided. Wash hands immediately and thoroughly. Let process for 8 minutes. Leave on longer for thicker hair, but do not exceed 10 minutes.

Remove Hair / Cream

Gently remove cream with a tissue or cotton ball.

Rinse your skin thoroughly with lukewarm Water and pat dry.

Gentle but effective!!

I was skeptical about trying this product at first. It's quite a bit more expensive than other home kits, and I'm always a little scared to try a new hair removal product because you never really know how your skin will react. But I am SO GLAD I went for it. I bought my first kit a month ago and have used it three times, and every time I was 100% happy with the results. My biggest problem area is my upper lip. I have naturally fair skin but my hair is dark and coarse, so most hair removal products basically burn my skin off but leave the hair intact. Wax strips also irritate my skin and make me break out. Since I started using Smooth Finish, though, all of those concerns have gone away. It actually does its job and REMOVES THE HAIR, which is all I really want it to do, but I also haven't had any redness or irritation. I thought I was taking a risk by putting this new product on my face and waiting to see what would happen, but it's probably one of the best choices I've ever made. As long as I keep getting the great results from Smooth Finish, I will happily spend the few extra bucks and never give a second glance to the products I've been using for years.

No, I do not recommend this product.

I have very coarse, dark facial hair and have used other home solutions in the past. I have never been satisfied-until now. I used this product for the first time today and it removed ALL my facial hair where used. The cream was easy to use and did not irritate my skin at all. I am baffled by the reviewers who are less than satisfied. This is by far the best hair removal product on the market in my opinion. No more salon visits for me!

No, I do not recommend this product.
