Skin Doctors Hair No More Inhibitor was an impulse purchase that I saw in the shop and wanted to try in hopes that it would actually stop my hair from growing back so quickly meaning that I wouldn't need to shave or wax as often.
It cost £9.99 which is a price I would have been happy to pay had it worked but unfortunately it did nothing really noticeable to stop my regrowth so it was a costly mistake buying it on impulse before checking out some reviews first.
Skin Doctors claim that this spray will stop hair growing back as quickly and that the hair that does come back through will be softer and sparser meaning that it will be easier to get rid of it. They also say that using the spray for prolonged periods of time will stop hair regrowth altogether.
The instructions say to use the spray every day until you notice that the hair has stopped regrowing. Well I used the entire bottle of the spray massaging it into my skin every day and I failed to notice any reduction in the amount of regrowth and also no reduction in the amount of time it took to come back. The growth also wasn't softer or sparser so I have to say that for me I don't think this worked at all.
I did think it smelt nice and although it stung when using straight after shaving or waxing it actually left my skin looking nice and smooth but since I didn't buy it as a moisturiser but as an inhibitor to stop regrowth of hair then I don't think it should get extra points for this as for its main purpose it didn't do anything.
I obviously didn't buy this again when I finished the bottle but as I had given it nearly two months to work I think this is more than enough time for it to have at least started to work a little and I think if in two months there wasn't even slight results then I would be dubious that any longer would give any better results.
I wouldn't recommend this and think it is just a case of a company selling a product with big claims but the product not being able to back them up.
I use Skin Doctors ingrow no more and absolutely love it so I had no qualms about trying another product in the range.
I decided to try the hair no more inhibitor spray as the ingrown hairs I get on my neck are painful and I hoped the inhibitor spray would thin the hair out a little and stop it from growing back so thickly and quickly after shaving.
I bought it in Boot's and it cost me £10 for a 120ml bottle which I thought was expensive but the Skin Doctor's range is quite an expensive one and I honestly believed it would be good.
The bottle itself is a clear plastic one with a spray mechanism and the lotion is inside is also clear.
The idea behind the inhibitor spray is that you just need to spray t on the area where you want to slow down the hair growth. It is meant more for body hair such as the legs or the chest area for men but I didn't see any harm in using it for my neck.
I didn't bother with spraying it directly on my neck and instead I used a cotton wool pad and applied it that way as I felt that I would get more control this way.
The first time I used the lotion I was worried that it would hurt as the ingrow lotion absolutely kills but other than a very light stinging there was no pain. It says to use the spray daily for the first week and then once or twice a week to keep hair away.
As I didn't want to actually stop the hair growing but just make it a litle finer I started off using it every couple of days but after seeing absolutely no results I used it every day and then followed the twice a week instructions.
It does say that results can take some time to show but I used it for over two months and saw absolutely no thinning in the hair whatsoever and regrowth was just as quick as it always was.
I have to say that I was really dissapointed with this inhibitor spray as I really did expect it to help and unfortunately it turned out to be an expensive waste of money and after finishing the bottle there was still no results whatsoever. I am unsure if it was because the hair on my neck is thick and course so perhaps it will work better on other parts of the body but as it didn't even slow the hair down I doubt it actually will.
To be honest I'm not entirely convinced that this product actually works. I gave it a fair shot and really hoped that it would yield positive results and still I was left a bit dissappointed.
It's a clear, odd smelling spray, which sadly does not offer any moisturising properties (which would have been a good idea) and so you've got no instant gratification when using it. This is a shame because it's not exactly cheap! You have to remember to apply it everyday for best results and definitely after hair removal.
I can't say that I noticed a great difference in regrowth (ew sorry) because I've been using a really good epilator and you get fuzz free pins for quite a while with these anyway. But there hasn't really been much difference between using the spray and not using the spray.
Maybe these things work differently person to person but overall I was left feeling that it's a bit if a false economy if you have to use it everyday at such a premium price tag when the results don't seem to be that miraculous!
Try for yourself but this one doesn't get a recommendation from me.
Skin Doctors Hair No More Inhibitor Spray!
I bought the Skin doctors hair no more set from boots for I think some thing like £25/30, which i thought was quite expensive. The hair remover cream that came with it didn't really work for me but the inhibitor spray worked quite well. It contains Pilinhib Veg which is a blend of natural plant extracts and Urea which helps to break down the structure of the hair.
I used it following the hair removal cream and it did reduce the regrowth and the thickness of the hair but this effect only really lasted about 2 days and then it started to slowly grow back. i used it when I went on a cruise in August and found out that if you use it all over the area twice a day, especially after a shower, the results last longer!
One thing I don't like about the spray is that it doesn't smell very nice, it smells like sweets and a bit like nail polish remover! I would buy it again but maybe a stronger strength formula should be made. Also it is quite expensive, the spray on its own in boots is about £15 and sets can go up to £45.
You can check go their australian website for more information on all the products in their range including acne treatments, anti aging and cellulite treatments!
Thank you for reading my review, I hope it was helpful! :D
Oh, how I battle with my body hair. It's impossibly thick and dark (French genes). I had a load of points sitting idly on my Boots card and one day I saw this product instore and decided to take the gamble. (It cost around £10 - more than I would usually pay for a hair removal product.)
It's advertised as a hair growth inhibitor, in that with regular use you should notice that the hair grows back thinner after removal (and, eventually, stops growing back at all). Obviously not to be used on sensitive areas although I found that it wasn't particularly chemically or heavy-duty, didn't sting when applied even after shaving/waxing, and smelled relatively pleasant (sort of minty). It comes in a spray, but the spray is designed to go over quite a large area and only about 50% of each puff actually hits the area you're going for, less if it's a smaller area.
Unfortunately after several weeks of use on my legs I noticed absolutely no difference in the hair, which was frustrating as I spent all my Boots points on it! Perhaps you're supposed to use it over a period of years or something, but since one 120ml bottle only lasted me 6 weeks or so I don't think my wallet will be able to take the strain. I assume it's somewhat more effective on fairer hair (most hair removal products are!).
I purchased skin doctor hair no more cream and inhibitor spray. i had blonde soft hair on my upper lip, it wasn't really a problem but when i saw this product advertised i thought i would try it. What a big mistake. My skin completely burnt and swelled up, two days later i had black stubble al over my upper lip. My skin is so burnt its like leather. This product should be banned.
I tried Hair No more inhibitor spray from http://www.salonlines.co.uk when I grew sick of shaving every other day and ending up with smooth but dry and sensitive skin.
What is Hair No More?
Hair No more inhibitor spray has been scientfically developed to get into the pores of your skin and saturate the hair bulb. The liquid stunts the hair at the root and prevents hair cells from germinating to slow down regrowth.
It works great as a moisturiser to sooth the skin after hair removal and I found with continued use it does soften, reduce and really slow down the regrowth of hair.
I found that Hair No More is safe, soothing, easy to use, moisturising, and natural.
You are able to use this on your chest, back, shoulders, abdomen, arms, underarms, legs, feet and toes.
I use Hair No More on my underarms and legs and have found it excellent for making the hair much finer and slower at growing back - this is with continued use of the product.
I paid £9.50 for the Inhibitor Spray from http://www.salonlines.co.uk
HairNoMore from Skin Doctors is a hair growth inhibitor spray which really means the ingredients are absorbed into the hair follicles and discourage hair from growing back. Its ideal for people like me with dark hair which really shows and as it can be used with numerous hair removal methods and will eventually save the pain of continually shaving, waxing or epilating to get rid of unwanted hair. The product is safe enough to use on legs, underarms, and the top lip but not for genital areas. This isnt a miracle cure believe me and there will not be instant results so perseverance is needed. However, the product claims hair growth will become thinner and less noticeable over time and claims that sometimes it NEVER grows back again! Well I tried it out to see.
The product comes in a biggish box which has the directions, claims, ingredients and cautions. This has to be kept (well until you learn what to do) because there is nothing on the bottle. It may feature the photo of a woman but I dont necessarily feel this is only suitable for females some males frequently remove hair from their bodies chest etc. and the only restrictions are the ears, nose, eyes, nipples, breasts, perianal and genital area. The 120ml plastic bottle is very simple, transparent with a slight frosted look, and is a pump spray which really helps getting in those harder to reach areas at the back of the legs etc. If applying to the face the top can also be unscrewed to dampen cotton wool with it and dab on the area above the lips.
The liquid is clear and almost has a medicated smell to it slightly minty but unless sticking your nose in the bottle wont be that recognisable. The smell reminds me of a Vicks Inhaler that youd stick up your nose although is certainly not as strong as that. As it is a spray, its simple to use but with products like this, including perfumes, I always feel some of it gets wasted as most lands on the floor. Ive never had a problem with it damaging furniture or carpets although usually its best to keep away from furnished surfaces.
Personally I wear gloves when applying any type of product because it saves my hands becoming greasy but this product is different. The instructions state to apply liberally although I only use a couple of sprays on the front of my legs and one to two on the back. It then says to massage into the skin. As I wear gloves the product doesnt soak into my hands instead of my legs so this helps the product go a lot further. The liquid isnt greasy at all and is very easily absorbed into the skin giving my legs a nice shine but not in a greasy way. If whatever part of the body gets a bit sweaty then sometimes the product becomes a little sticky like sitting on a leather chair and trying to prize yourself away from it when getting up. The smell of the product disappears as it is absorbed which is a plus although I do quite like the smell.
The product should be used daily for the first week then at least twice a week thereafter. It does say that if your hair is quite thick, dark or has strong regrowth then it should be applied twice daily to get to work quicker so I did for a while. I used the spray in conjunction with shaving and epilating. What I did notice right at the start was even after two uses I could see the liquid going down. So with daily use it was doubtful the product would last long enough to even see any effect.
For the purpose of this review, I used the full content of the bottle which lasted a couple of months. I did use it daily, although perhaps not as religiously as I should have, but did use it especially after removing hair. As epilating is one of my most used methods I do find that my legs get red, blotchy and like someone stabbed me with pins but this liquid with Witch Hazel and St Johns Wort actually helped ease that feeling and left my legs looking a lot better. It didnt really sting but I think it may be the mintyness in it that can feel a bit tingly after use. Although I did use the spray often I really didnt see that much of a difference through continual use. I could certainly notice the liquid disappearing but being unable to compare the results from beginning to end I was left quite disappointed as I had hoped Id found something to rid me from the pain of hair removal.
The cost of the product was something I did take into consideration on purchase because it wasnt £4.99 like Johnsons Hair Minimising Lotion but actually double that at just less than £10 from Boots. To me it was a big waste of money although in general it did have its advantages it didnt do the main job it was intended for. The hair may have become a little thinner while using but once the spray was finished, unfortunately so were the results as now, months after use, it just seems like it did before. 2 stars!
