    Worked Amazingly For My Laser Hair Removal

    Posted by Nicole I. on 2018 Mar 7th

    I applies this twice, generously, within one hour of my full Brazilian Laser Hair Removal procedure, and it worked 100 times better that I imagined. Honestly, I only wined a couple of times and a 30 minutes procedure only lasted 10 minutes because I couldn't feel a thing!!!

    I got a big rib piece coverup done, and I was dreading the pain. Didnt feel anything for 2 hours! The best advice I have is to break open the area with a tattoo machine, apply the product, then wrap for an hour.
