Hair removal methods all have their disadvantages. For example waxing can be painful. There is absolutely no doubt about it. But shaving can take ages and sometimes you can risk getting cuts. Other methods like laser hair removal may be too expensive.
Hair removal creams are another decent alternative. If you want to avoid pain, get the job done quickly, and not spend too much then they’re a good option. All you have to do is apply an even layer of cream on the area that needs to be treated and then leave it for several minutes. Then the hair should be easy to scrape off. But there are several creams available on the market. Is there any difference between them?
Here are some of the top hair removal creams. These brands are all reliable and will work well, but one may be better than the others depending on your hair type.

Avon aren’t one of the most well-known brands for hair removal, but still a great choice. A good hair removal cream without the usual horrible smell. Removes hair with minimal irritation. However it’s not suitable for the face. Can easily be found for under $7 so it’s amazing value. Comes with the cream and scraper. The cream penetrates quite deeply so it lasts a little longer than average.
Nair Hair Removal
Most people hate the smell but it does provide some good results. It’s not too strong so doesn’t leave you with red marks or break outs.
