Beauty Wars: Hair Removal Cream Vs Shaving
Beauty wars: hair removal cream Vs shaving
Ok, let’s not beat around the bush – whipping out the razor in the shower and whisking off hair here and there is fast.
But it’s not all silk and roses. Day two of shaved legs feels more like little rose thorns, so you’re back in the shower whipping around the legs again. And again the next day because the crazy stubble-on-stubble itch of your legs resting together kept you tossing and turning throughout the night.
And don’t get us started on the bikini line!
Anyway, by now you’re probably thinking, ‘of course Nad’s is going to say cream is better that shaving… they don’t sell razors! And you’d be right.
But if Nad’s founder, Sue Ismiel thought shaving was the best way to remove daughter Natalie’s excess arm hair, there’s a good chance we’d be in the razor business.
What we do know about the pros of shaving is that it’s fast. But can hair removal crèmes work as well as – if not better – than shaving?
We asked Nad’s beauty expert Natalie Ismiel to share her thoughts on choosing hair removal cream over shaving, and here's what she said.
1 Hair removal crème leaves skin feeling smoother for longer
While shaving cuts the hair off at the skin’s surface, hair removal creams like Nad’s Sensitive Hair Removal Crème dissolves the hair so it’s more tapered and natural as it regrows. This also makes hair removal crème more suitable for the face than shaving. Try Nad’s Facial Hair Removal Crème and remember to always read the instructions.
2 Hair removal cream comes with zero risk of cuts and razor burn
It may not happen every time you shave, but when you nick yourself, it stings and bleeds and just keeps stinging and bleeding. Add razor burn to the mix and you’re going for maximum discomfort. There’s no risk of razor nasties with hair removal cream. However, if you feel that your skin is a little sensitive, try Nad’s Sensitive Hair Removal Crème and, as always, read the instructions before you begin.
3 There’s at least 4 minutes ‘me-time’ built into every application of hair removal cream
Bet you didn’t expect that in a tube of hair removal cream! Four minutes quiet time behind the bathroom door is enough to give your eyebrows a quick tidy, listen to your favourite song at least once or send a text to organise a lunch date. Try doing any of those things with a razor in your hand and… well, see point two above. ;-)
In conclusion: hair removal cream does take a little longer than shaving, but it leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and hair free for a little longer than a quick whisk around with the razor.

Hi everyone, in the past few weeks Nad's had been actively participating in the World's Greatest Shave. We did the waxing for Karl's Charity Leg wax, donating $5,000 for the cause and another $5,000 for 2GB's Ben Fordham's Manzillian; another fundraiser for the Leukaemia Foundation.
However, that $10,000 is just a drop in the ocean because just this year more than 11,500 people are expected to be diagnosed with a blood cancer or related blood disorder in Australia. This equates to 31 people every day. Money is needed to fund research to find better treatments, cures and fund the Leukaemia Foundation's free services to support patients and their families from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.
It is one of Australia's biggest fundraising events. Every March thousands of people shave, colour and wax their hair to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.
On Thursday, the 15th of March 2012 Nad's will be participating again in another World's Greatest Shave event. Nad's will be waxing in the "SURRY HILLS ROCKS : SHAVE AID" - a music fundraiser event to raise awareness and much needed funds for leukaemia. Proceeds raised will go to The Leukaemia Foundation of Australia. We are inviting you to join us in supporting this great cause at: ...read more
