Olay Facial Hair Remover Duo Review

Hairy Chins and Fuzzy Cheeks Beware!

Are you sick of plucking out those granny hairs, or are you sporting a mustache that would make Tom Selleck proud?

If you’re like many of us “mature” girls, it’s probable that that light, thin peach fuzz on your lip and cheeks has mutated into something that would make Abraham Lincoln proud. Yay – another joy of aging.

Now in addition to wrinkle cream and hair color, you need a good hair remover. Olay says that their Facial Hair Removal Duo is exactly what you’re looking for.

Having A Hard Time Choosing?

Choosing the best beauty product can be overwhelming especially when it comes to hair removal. This is true, in part, because there are so many products to choose from. While some seem to be made just for you, others are not. One brand that stands out is Olay Smooth Facial Hair Removal Duo.

Who’s Olay, Anyway?

Olay was first developed back in the 1950’s by chemist Graham Wulff. Originally called “Oil of Olay”, the name was changed to “Olay” in 2000 by its manufacturer, Proctor and Gamble. So much for its history. Now, let’s get the basics of the product at hand.

What Is It?

Olay Smooth Facial Hair Removal Duo is fairly new to the market when it comes to hair removal systems. This system is used in two steps. The first step actually removes the hair and the second step soothes your skin so that you don’t get irritation.

The product claims that their system is pretty close to effortless and is available in two easy steps to achieve the removal of facial hair without the effects of unwanted (and visible) side effects such as redness and irritation to the skin.

So far so good. Now let’s look at the pros and cons of the product beginning with the duo’s ingredients.

What’s In It?

Skin Guarding Balm: Basically the only ingredients in the balm are, well, balms and conditioners. There are some oils as well as beeswax and vitamin E. Nothing special but it does have the ingredients to soothe your skin and nothing that would irritate it.

Hair Removal Cream: The actual hair removing part of the duo has pretty much what you’d expect: hair removers, water, and mineral oil. It also has soothing agents including aloe and chamomile. There’s some lye in there but really with this product, lye is probably the least of your worries regarding irritants. Now that we know what’s in it, let’s take a look at the duo’s pros and cons as expressed by actual users.


Reviews of satisfied customers of Olay Smooth Facial Hair Removal Duo have been posted on the net in droves. The most popular attributes of this product given by customers is that Olay Smooth Facial Hair Removal Duo is fast, results in no skin irritation, is odorless and your skin appears softer and smoother after you use it.

Generally, users don’t have to repeat the process for at least a month. Awesome. Now, let’s check out the cons.


Since every person is different, their choices in skin care are going to differ, too. The use of hair removal products, especially when it comes to those that you’re using on your face, is a very personal decision and requires basic common sense.

Some of the ingredients we talked about previously are harsh and may result in skin irritation or burning. In addition, some reviews posted revealed that this product didn’t work at all for some people. Another complaint was that the product wasn’t strong enough to remove stubborn, course, hair such as those stiff granny hairs that may be growing on your chin.

Final Word

When considering a hair removal system, take the time to do your homework. If the product appears to be all hype, contains warnings that make you feel uncomfortable about using it, and/or consumer’s negative comments outweighs those which are positive, then it’s most likely that the product is bunk. Since most people who tried Olay’s product liked it, I’d say to consider what you really need, and if Olay’s claims match your requirements, then give the duo a shot.
