Vitex Special Care Active

Despite the fact that this depilation cream is declared as a product for sensitive skin, we could not classify it in the appropriate category of rating. There are no complaints about the effectiveness of hair removal to the cream: hairs dissolve without residue in just 5-7 minutes.

However, if we have normal skin without a tendency to allergies, we recommend trying it as a really working tool for depilation.

Evil tongues say that expensive and low-cost depilatory creams remove hair in about the same way. The difference is only in the flavor - expensive products have better fragrances, better silencing unpleasant odor. Our rating confirmed that low-cost remedies do an excellent job with the problem of unwanted hair, have minimal effect on the skin and even have caring properties thanks to natural oils and extracts in the composition. But, choosing the best depilatory cream, take into account the individual characteristics of your skin and do not forget to carry out an elementary test for allergies - it will save you from possible problems. Good luck with your choice and smooth skin!
