This wiki has been updated 21 times since it was first published in May of 2018. If you have hair in unwanted places, chances are you've tried to remove it by shaving or a painful waxing session at a salon. If neither method proved satisfactory, try one of these creams, which come without any risk of razor burn, and promise results that last for some time. We've ranked the market's best options here by effectiveness, gentleness, and ease of use. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 11, 2019:

When removing hair, formulas that are gentle and fortifying, rather than damaging, to the skin are critical. On that note, we removed Palmer's Cocoa Butter for Legs, which some found too harsh on sensitive areas, however we kept Nair Cocoa Butter Lotion. The latter still boasts the nourishing and wonderfully-scented namesake ingredient, without the stinging sensation.

Not everybody gets advance notice as to when they'll need to be looking flawless, so we included CidBest Premium, which can get results in as little as five minutes. Nair Shower Power Sensitive Formula is another great choice for the individual in a hurry, as it is meant to be used in the shower, allowing the user to multitask and strip away follicles on their legs while waiting for that moisturizing treatment to work on their head.

Though Veet Botanic Inspirations had fallen out of favor with users and had to be removed, the company still remains on our list with Veet Legs & Body Gel Sensitive Formula, and for good reason. It's dermatologist-tested and contains several skin-strengthening ingredients, like Vitamin E and aloe vera.

We know it's not all about bikini regions and legs when it comes to peach fuzz eradication, so we also have Olay Smooth Finish Duo for the face on our list, and Avon Skin So Soft, which men will find to be effective on removing chest hair.
