Bleach to Bare with Jolen

It’s that time of year to think about something we don’t often talk about…hair removal. With summer on the way, we’ll be showing our skin; the last thing we want to worry about is unsightly facial or body hair. Jolen has been a leader in safe and effective hair management for years; I recently gave it a try. Read on for my thoughts.

As a little girl, I’d always been self-conscious about my dark hair, whether it was on my face, arms or legs. Gym class was a nightmare. Because my mom’s side of the family is Italian, of my three sisters, I seemed to inherit the “hair” trait. I had to figure out at a relatively early age the ins and outs of hair removal–with varying degrees of success.

Fast forward to today. I still deal with dark body hair…and as I get older, hair that pops up where I don’t want it to! That makes the warm weather season a challenge. I’ve recently rediscovered and have been using Jolen Creme Bleach in the Original formula on my arms, thighs and legs areas. Especially for the arm and thigh areas, I would prefer bleaching over other options, such as waxing. Jolen Creme Bleach was one of the first solutions I had tried years ago; and is the #1-selling bleach brand in the world. It’s been in the beauty aisles for 50 years, so I knew it was a product I could trust.

Jolen Creme Bleach - package contents

Before I started, I thoroughly read the package directions. Application is easy and the whole process takes just 10 minutes for results that last up to four weeks; perfect for summer. There are two formulas of Jolen Creme Bleach available: the original formula, which is what I used and a sensitive formula, with Aloe Vera, which is ideal for use on sensitive, more delicate skin. At no time did I experience any burning or irritation with use.

Jolen Before-After - leg

You can see my results in the above before and after photo, where I treated my leg with Jolen Creme Bleach, original formula. The hair is completely undetectable (note: I also love the results on my arms, but capturing a photo one-handed, not so easy!). I achieved the same success on the thigh area, also. What I like is that now I can go confidently into summer without being self-conscious or worrying about unwanted hair.

If facial hair is a concern, the new Jolen Facial Hair Remover Kit is a great option.The new Jolen Facial Hair Remover Kit is a unique, three-step hair removal system that quickly, gently and effectively removes unwanted hair on the upper lip, chin and cheeks.
