As humans, we have a lot of hair. Us men usually have a decent amount in pretty much all areas of our body which can be a bit annoying at times, to say the least. This is where hair removal cream comes in and no, it’s not as scary as it sounds. There are actually a number of different options to go for. From products best for sensitive skin, to creams to use in the shower and much more. Depending on each person there is a product for you.
1. Veet Men Hair Removal Cream, 200 ml
Perfect for sensitive skin, this Veet hair removal cream is a great option for all types of hair whether it’s long or short. This is to be used on either your chest or body and leaves your skin feeling smooth and moisturised. As a brand that has been around for around 80 years now, it is not only a great product but it’s something you can trust. Veet can be found in a number of stores and online making it the most accessible removal cream in the list. Buy this product here.
2. Sally Hansen Creme Hair Remover Duo Kit For Face
Looking to get rid of a bit of stubble or a beard but don’t have the patience to shave? Look no further than this hair removal cream by Sally Hansen (not to sound like a TV salesman) this is a quick and easy way to get rid of any hair you wish to get off your face, even eyebrows if you fancy! The best part about using this product is that it doesn’t leave a red rash when applied and completely removes the possibility of cutting your face! Brilliant. It’s a great alternative to shaving and is quick and easy to use. The set also comes with moisturiser (a great aftercare idea when shaving). Buy this product here.
3. Nair Hair Remover Men Body Cream (385 ml)
Heading over to uk.askmen.com you can get a whole host of great product recommendations for men, from men. Nair boasts a cream that a can be used all over the body from back and legs to your arms and chest. Best for thicker, coarse hair, this would be a perfect solution and it’ll mean you can avoid getting it waxed (ouch!).

As every man agrees, you don’t want anything that’ll end up with pain in your downstairs region. This is why the Nair hair removal cream is so great, it’s trustworthy and is one of the most well-known products in the men’s care market. Buy the product here.
4. Nad’s For Men Hair Removal Cream (200 ml)
Originally an Australian brand, Nad’s is a great product to use if you’re just getting into the world of hair removal creams and this is down to a couple of reasons. First off is the product itself; quick and easy to use as soon as you get the bottle. All you need to do is apply, leave for 4 minutes and wipe. Simple as that!
Secondly to this is the website itself which is something every brand should take note of. Easy to get around and more importantly full of brilliant and helpful information complete with a how-to video showing off the product actually being used. Check it out now over at nads.com.

Nivea for Men Post Shave Balm
When looking at men’s hair removal products you may also want to think of some aftercare ideas that’ll help with keeping skin moisturised as well because trust me, it pays off to have a good skincare routine.
Much like Veet, Nivea is a great product. Trustworthy and straight to the point and as men, that’s all we ask for from our self-care products, right? When using the Post Shave Balm all you need to is use your hair removal cream as guided; follow this up by simply applying the balm to the area that’s been de-haired and bask in the comfort of soft skin.

Below The Belt Fresh & Dry Balls
Now gents, we all have this issue and I’m sure you can agree. The dreaded sweaty, uncomfortable groin. Especially in this weather (for those of you not from the UK we are currently experiencing what feels like the longest heat wave in history), it can be a common problem. Thankfully Below the Belt has just the thing. Similar to a deodorant, this product will allow you to go about your day and still have everything feeling fresh and dry. Buy the product here.
Aesop Moroccan Neroli Post Shave Lotion
Voted ‘best buy’ by The Independent in April, this product has not only got the most aesthetically pleasing packaging…ever. But is also great for many skin types and gives relief from a number of reactions after shaving such as dry skin, irritation and red marks. Similar to the previous products all you need to do is apply to the skin after using your hair removal cream or razor. Buy the product here.
If you’re like me and you didn’t know that hair removal cream was anything more than a myth or a good idea then you’ll probably be as impressed as I am with the range available. Before using hair removal cream please remember to do a quick tester with a small dot on your skin and leaving it there for around 10-15 minutes. If there is no negative reaction, go for it!
