We have several females in the family that have difficulty with breakouts after hair removal, whether in be shaving, waxing, or manual devices. Laser was not successful as hair was not coarse enough to respond well. This product does take hair off without breakouts on all areas including bikini lines! We do have to use it more frequently than advertised, and it does have somewhat of an unpleasant odor, but nothing as unpleasant as other depilatory creams. And the odor dissipates quickly instead of your skin smelling for days. Works very well for several generations in our household!
