product review: Ozone Depil Mousse

I recently bought a can of Ozone's Depil Mousse product for removing hair. I figured I'd try it out instead of shaving. I'm distinctly unimpressed, however. It stinks, you have to leave it on for 10 minutes for it to work, and it's expensive. It does get the hair off well, but for me the minuses outweigh the plus.

I'll stick with the razor.

I was just about to write a review for that stuff. Has your hair began to grow back yet? My legs look like they were blasted with a shotgun because of ingrown hairs.

I used it once too. No ingrown hair problems like the Cypress, and the smell is kind of a necessary evil. Not sure if I used too much of the stuff, but I only got like 1 1/2 uses out of one can, and it was only good for a week or two.

no ingrown hairs for me, and the hair grew back at about the same rate as from shaving. just not worth it, but hey I'll try nearly anything once!
