Whether its beauty, wellness or fitness, products that aim to save us time when it comes to doing 'chores’ are definitely on the up.
In wellness it’s products that speed-up food prep. In fitness it’s workouts that burn hundreds of calories in minutes. And in beauty it’s products that work in the background.
In-shower treatment products fall squarely into the latter category, and the latest one to cross my path is this new Shower Power Cream from Nair. It’s part of Nair’s Nourish Argan Collection, a range of hair removal formulas infused with argan oil and orange blossom to make skin soft and glowy, and also to soothe.
The instructions say to wait 1-2 minutes before stepping inside the shower, and also to avoid excessive exposure to water on the treated area. The ‘water avoidance’ advice is a bit odd for a product designed to work in-shower!
It’s actually impossible NOT to get a fair amount of water hitting your skin while showering, no matter how skilful you are at contortion. Anyway, the point is this cream doesn’t wash away as easily as standard creams do, so don’t worry if you get hit with a few big splashes.
The cream applies smoothly with the spatula supplied. It’s got a pleasant fresh smell (remember the very strong eggy smell with hair removal creams of old?). It does feel quite cold on the skin– I’ve found that with many hair removal creams. After the three minutes I could see my hair re-growth start to wither. I stepped inside the shower.
Shower done, legs hair free and yes, my skin definitely feels soft and nourished. I started to notice some hair re-growth about a week later, as expected.
Nair Nourish Argan Oil Shower Power Cream was a surprising success. In-shower shaving is no longer just the preserve of the wet razor (which I don’t do because of the in-growing hairs and shaving nicks that often go with it). It costs £5 for 200ml at Sainsbury’s (other retailers are available) here. More on Nair here
