GiGi Hair Removal Cream For Face
Didn't work for me
The first time I put it on for 5 min. I don't think it removed any hair. I didn't have any irritation. The next day I did notice some peeling. I waited 3 days and tried again, this time for 6 min. It removed most the hair. It didn't burn until I put the soothing balm on. I immediately wiped off the balm.
Maybe my skin is too sensitive for it.

I got this for a few hairs that are starting to sprout above my upper lip (don't get old, folks!). I purchased it because this was specifically 'for the face', and was worried about such a sensitive area. I would advised, especially for your first time , using this product to cut the time in half. The box said 5-7 minutes. After 4, the hair was already gone (still completely gone 2 weeks later with no signs of growing back yet), but I was still irritated. Slight redness that went away within the hour, and the next day a little skin dryness/flaking. Nothing major--it was remedied with a good face wash and some lotion. Next time I'll cut back to about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Now, keep in mind that I am VERY fair skinned, the hairs that were growing in were a dark blonde to light brown, and they were not thick--they were fine hairs. I did not need a very thick layer either, so I'd say this one tube of product is going to last me well over a year--I hope it has a LONG shelf life!

This products kills your skin before it gets any facial hair!!!!! The result: red splotches that hurt and cannot be covered up!

Have never used a cream removal product on my face. Had laser treatments in the past with not very good results. Also, have sensitive skin. Did the skin test first with no problems, then treated upper lip and lower chin area for 10 minutes (not the 8 minutes in the directions).I am so Happy with the results! Will definitely be purchasing GiGi hair removal again.
