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 medium to coarse facial hair on the upper lip and jaw line.


Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo For Medium to Coarse 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 coarse, stubborn 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. Treat only once so that hairs aren't overly coated. 

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.

Product Feel

Good product too expensive

This product works quite well in removing the hair on my upper lip. Finding it in the store can be hard. I am in agreement that this is over priced. As for doing anything for my skin, I would have to it does nothing.

Yes, I recommend this product!

Product Feel

Wasn't effective

As an African American woman it is very challenging to find a product that works on my facial hair.I had very high hopes for this product, especially since it was on the expensive side. However, it did NOT remove my hair. Instead it only removed hair in random patches. For the price of the product I expect so much more. Olay has always been a go to brand for me. I am very disappointed.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Hello, We're sorry this didn't meet your expectations. It may help to know that it can take a couple times of using the product to know what works best for your particular hair type. To repeat the process, wait at least three days before using the product again. This allows skin to recover and to avoid irritation. I hope you give it a try!
