I’m not ashamed to admit that as someone who only recently moved to the US, I was not familiar with Jolen, which seems to be a household beauty staple for many generations of women across the country, and there’s no better way of learning about it than to experience it firsthand. I recently had the opportunity to try the classic Jolen™ Creme Bleach and the new Jolen™ Facial Hair Remover Kit, that provide two different ways to manage unwanted hair: hide it or remove it all together – the choice is yours!
I decided to try the new Jolen™ Facial Hair Remover Kit first, because I personally prefer complete hair removal. I feel like my skin just feels so nice and smooth when it’s either freshly shaved or waxed, but shaving every day is kind of annoying, and waxing is painful, so hair removal cream is my ideal middle ground.
The kit contains a unique three-step system to ensure quick, gentle, and effective hair removal from upper lip, chin, and cheeks. It contains Skin Guarding Balm to prepare the skin for hair removal; Hair Removal Cream that quickly removes any unwanted hair from your face; and Cleanse & Soothe Wipes to wipe away the removal cream, loose hair, and any residue, while soothing and conditioning the skin. Dermatologist-tested and proven to work for all hair types, Jolen™ Facial Hair Remover Kit works in just 8 minutes. I don’t know about you, but I think that I can totally spare eight minutes for easy hair removal instead of putting up with the pain and irritation from waxing.
As you can see from my before and after photos, the kit worked very well and I am happy with the end result. My skin looks noticeably brighter and cleaner just from removing all that upper lip peach fuzz, and that helps my makeup go on more evenly.
I also tried Jolen™ Creme Bleach between my brows just to see how it works, and it’s definitely a viable option for those who want to keep things natural but still look well-groomed. It only takes 10 minutes to work, and the results last up to four weeks, so it’s kind of like waxing, but without the pain. Jolen™ Creme Bleach comes in two varieties: Original formula and Sensitive formula that includes aloe vera. I used the original formula, which worked just fine for my thin combination skin, but now I kind of want to try the sensitive formula, too.
I always feel a sense of empowerment after hair removal, like I can do anything, and achieve every goal. As silly it might sound, but it gives me a nice boost of confidence, akin to a new haircut, or a freshly painted mani. Currently one of my biggest goals is weight loss, so Jolen provided me with an Under Armour Headband, as if saying “You go, get rid of that unwanted hair and those Winter pounds, you can do it, girl!” And you know what? I know I can! [off to conquer the treadmill after writing this post, no kidding]
