Nair Moroccan Argan Oil | Cire Divine & Ultimate Roll-on Wax

There are a handful of summer-weather themes that are recycled year after year- SPF, bronzer/tanning, beach hair, and of course, hair removal. The more clothing that comes off, the more hair that needs to go too, obviously. There are a ton of options to get rid of the fuzz, but Nair is kind of the queen of at home hair removal solutions. New to their roster of removal remedies is the Nair Moroccan Argan Oil range inducing Cire Divine for Legs & Body and Ultimate Roll-on Face Wax. Interested? Read on!


If you want easy hair removal for legs and body, look no further than Nair Moroccan Argan Oil Cire Divine. With Cire Divine, there are not strips, just the wax- easy. You simply pop the pot of wax into the microwave (two minutes + three minutes resting time) a stir, and you're good to go. The process is as simple as applying a thin layer on skin, letting it dry and pulling it off. I found the process quite easy, but the wax does cool off in the pot quite quickly and as it does gets stringy (aka messy.) While the precess is indeed simple, I find it's not easy getting the wax to cleanly break away from the pot, which can result in wax where you don't want it.

As for pain, there is some (duh, you're never going to get rid of it all together) but it's not bad. The wax is formulated to adhere to hair, not skin, which reduces pain (yay!) The formula also includes organic agrgan oil and orange blossom which are known for their moisturizing and nourishing qualities. While I can't say if my skin felt moisturized post-wax, it did feel smooth and without irritation. The included post-waxing wipes are also quite handy as they sooth skin and remove any excess wax and residue. 


Brows are tricky, and tweezing kind of sucks. A lot- I hate tweezing. I'd much rather spend a little time with at-home wax. Nair Moroccan Argan Oil Ultimate Roll-on Face Wax is an excellent option for those with trust issues, and would rather deal with their brows themselves. The wax is in a small tube, which you heat by placing in a vessel of boiling water. Three minutes and you're ready to pop on the dispensing cap- it allows you to roll the wax on- and get down to business.

I found the process to be very easy, as you're just applying the wax and using a strip for removal, but the roll-on aspect is a little bit gimmicky. The wheel gets gunky pretty quickly and is too large for precise application for brows. The included orange wood stick works best as an applicator, since it allows you total control. I find waxing brows to be much less painful than tweezing, and my experience with this kit was no different. The wax is washable, which makes clean up fairly quick, as the strips are re-usable and you need to clean the rolling applicator for any future uses.

Overall, I'm a fan of both hair removal methods. I find it does take me longer to get through the process (compared to shaving or tweezing) but the upside is the results last a lot longer. Do you wax at home? Is it something you'd try?
