Hi guys, I"m looking for a blech cream to lighten the hair on my face. I"ve already tried Jolens bleach cream, but I don"t really like it, cuz when I apply it on my face the "cream" dries into a powdery kinda thing and it starts falling of my face, its messy to mix the powder and cream. I want something that is already a cream, more liquid w/out using the powder to mix, so that it stays put on the face. Btw: did anyone watched celebrity big brother UK?! Shilpa Shetty did bleach her face w/ something that look "liquid" to me, I want something like that!

Also I have some thicker hair around my chin, jawline etc. that I want to tweeze again instead of shaving, I wonder that if I would apply lemon juice after tweezing if my hair will come back thinner, I really want it to come back thinner, any tips please?

Thank you in advance Smile

I've tried Jolen's, Sally Hansen, etc. All powder form and did not like them. Jolen's was WAY too harsh on my skin. I prefer the liquid/cream ones also. The best liquid bleach I've used is Gigi Gentle Bleaching Cream. It's good for sensitive skin. The activator is not a powder, it's a cream. Ardell also sells a similar one called Invisi-Bleach. As for the lemon application after plucking, I don't know if it works or not. You might want to try waxing. Confused

Thank you very much for your answer, it def. helps. I have tried waxing, but my skin is sensitive for it, and turns red after it, also the hair has to be a certain lenght and sometimes waxing doesn"t grab all the hair that I have Wink Anyway, thx again, bye!!!

I've never had much success with cream bleaches, they all sensitised my skin to the point where rinsing water on my skin hurt!

I would recommend smoothing a thin layer of vaseline over the skin before apply bleaches. That way you can keep it on for longer and reduce irritation.

Have you considered threading? It is a lot gentler than waxing and does reduce hair growth slightly over time.

I like the Gigi Gentle one too, though it does leave me a little red afterwards... I know it might seem a little strange, but I've been putting a little Neosporin cream on after I wash it off to keep it from getting too irritated.

Gigi does irritate.. But it's the LEAST irritating bleacing cream I've ever used.. all the others are really harsh on my skin and leave bumps afterwards. Sad I would put some tea tree oinment to calm down the redness or some aloe vera gel. Neosporin gets kind of itchy on my skin.

Just fyi - Jolen does make a mild formula with aloe vera. I've used it, but only on my 'stach area Smile No problems with first application, but skin turns red if I have to re-apply. But it goes away quickly.

But I accidently picked up the regular version when I was in the US last month. Have not tried it yet, but now I'm wondering from your posts if it will be too harsh. Sad

Maybe I'll look for the Gigi cream. Do I understand it doesn't have to be mixed - I can use as is? That would be a huge plus!

You do have to mix it. But the activator is a cream form, instead of powder form. Smile

Thx for the vaseline tip. I was thinking about threading also, but the problem is that here in the Netherlands it"s hard to find a salon that"s doing this. I know a place in Amsterdam that does this, but Amsterdam is an hour away for me to travel. Funny thing is that I have tried to do threading today myself, but I have no clue (sp) how to do it Razz Wink

I just used Veet sensitive on my upper lip & it worked great. It took all of the hairs off & no stinging or burning. I left it on for 4 minutes.

Thanks, Lisa (got that right, I hope!) Smile

I would love to find one that's ready to go, no mixing. Gentle enough for sensitive skin. Does one exist? Anyone know?
