olayfhrs.jpgIt’s not something people like to talk about, but it’s something that affects 85% of women: facial hair. Whether yours is fine or medium, there’s finally a hair removal system that really works, without the tell-tale redness or irritation that many other facial hair removers can leave, Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo.

This specially formulated two-step system is designed to gently, yet effectively, remove fine to medium unwanted facial hair on the upper lip and jaw line, while minimizing irritation. This is great news for the 96% of women with visible facial hair that remove it five times a month.

Easy to use, the system includes:

Step 1: a Skin Guarding Balm which helps prepare skin for removal by providing a thin guarding layer while still exposing hair.

Step 2: Hair Removal Cream with a fresh, light scent is applied over the guarding balm to weaken and effortlessly remove fine to medium hair.

The results? Skin is immediately hair free, with no signs of redness and irritation and you’re ready to face the world with confidence.

It might not be something you like to talk about, but unwanted facial hair takes an emotional toll on a woman’s self-esteem. Whether it’s on the upper lip, chin, cheeks, or elsewhere, facial hair can be embarrassing or make a woman feel unattractive. Luckily, there are products like the new Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo which gently and effectively removes unwanted facial hair in two simple steps — with no tell-tale irritation or redness.


But before you begin to remove your unwanted facial hair, it’s important to determine your facial hair type. According to Olay, hair can be classified into 3 types:

    1. Fine hair can be compared to the thin and soft fuzz on a peach
    2. Medium hair is more visible, but still soft to the touch
    3. Coarse hair tends to be more visible and stiff, similar to a kiwi

Every woman’s facial skin and hair is unique, so if you identify your hair type as fine to medium, you’re ready to find a hair removal system that works for you. For women with coarse hair, Olay will be introducing a hair removal system for tougher-to-remove hair in the near future, so stay tuned.
