How to Use

application instruction
48 Hours Prior To Every Use:

Read and follow warnings and directions carefully. Conduct 48-hour skin reaction test. See Leaflet for directions.


Apply Skin Guarding Balm

First, lightly swipe the Skin Guarding Balm ONCE ONLY across the middle of the areas you wish to treat. Apply a thin layer to ensure effective hair removal.

Second, use your fingers to massage the Skin Guarding Balm into your skin, going beyond the area you wish to treat. Massage for 20 seconds in a circular motion. Effective massage ensures there is a thin layer to keep the Hair Removal Cream from coming in direct contact with your skin, while ensuring the balm doesn’t overly coat any hairs you want to remove.


Apply Hair Removal Cream

Squeeze the Hair Removal Cream onto your fingertip (small grape size for upper lip treatment) and immediately smooth over the area to be treated (on top of the balm), covering it completely with a thick layer. Do not rub it in. Use only with the Skin Guarding Balm provided.

Wash hands immediately and thoroughly. Wait for 6-8 minutes. Leave on longer for thicker hair, but do not exceed 10 minutes.

Remove Hair/Cream

After 6-8 minutes, gently remove cream with a tissue or cotton ball (do not rub excessively). Rinse your skin thoroughly with lukewarm Water and pat dry.

Amazing Results

Today I purchased and used the Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo. After almost a year of very costly laser hair removal and YEARS of using 'other' facial hair removal creams, I felt like I had nothing to lose by trying the Olay Facial Hair Removal Duo. Although the cost was more than other products in the same category, I decided it would be worth the risk. After following the directions, I was amazed at the amount of hair the product removed! It was like nothing I have ever experienced before. There was no irritation or stinging-sensation (like the other creams I have used) and the redness (which was minimal) was gone within a few minutes. My skin was left soft and smooth. I am excited to see just how long the result will last! Thank you Olay for creating such a remarkable product...I will be sure to let friends and family know.

Awesome Product!

Purchasing the Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo was definitely a great idea! The product does what is says! As an individual with very sensitive skin, I highly recommend this product for zero irritation. I have read many negative reviews on this product and honestly can't understand where they all come from. I have a suspicion that these people have not used the product according to instructions. If you follow the instructions thoroughly then your results should be great!!!
