Those of you who have been following me from the early days may recall I did a post on hair lightening, reviewing Jolene Creme Bleach.
I use this for the dark hairs on my face and have found it better than trying to find a suitable removal method.
Following this review, quite a few girls recommended the Boots version advising it was cheaper and didn't sting unlike the Jolene version.
So of course I gave it a try. It comes with what you can see below and then you mix equal parts of the formulas into a paste.
I found this product to be a little less effective than the Jolene version (picutres from Jolene review can be found here). The below pictures demonstrate that the hairs had been lightened but were not as light as they could be.
However, I was still happy with the result. Boots's version did still sting me though so I must have sensitive skin. Bleaching has always stung my skin though so it doesn't worry me, it just would have been nice for no stinging!
The downside to Boots' bleach was that the result did not last as long as with Jolene. I noticed the hairs going darker again within around a week and a half, whereas with Jolene it lasts around 3 weeks.
Therefore, I will continue to use the Boots version until I am finished, but after that I will be going back to Jolene Creme Bleach because the effects last longer. And lets face it, what girl wants to spend one night a week bleaching the hair on her face!
