Is Magic Shave good for shaving? – Marcus in Indianapolis, IN
Depilatories, including Magic Shave and a host of others, have been around for a long time. I have consulted with men that have experienced success as well as nightmares with their use. I myself have tried my share many years back with mixed results.
The main concerns are: (1) can your skin handle the aggressive nature of these products, and (2) can you wait 2 or 3 days for your face to heal before you have to use them again?
Most men that use depilatories (i.e. Magic Shave, Nair..) use them because their skin gets irritated with razor shaving. So, with all of that in mind, test a small area of your cheek or neck to determine the time it takes to remove the hair and how your feels after using the product. For some men, alternating between a depilatory and a pair of good trimmers is a great way to give your skin a rest in between shaves. This is of course only if your face can sustain the regimen.
