If you are constantly shaving and waxing so you don’t look like Chewbacca in a bikini but don’t want to go all Star Wars with laser hair removal, there is a new hope for you coming later this summer. Nerdy allegories aside, Inhibitif is a hair removal serum for men and women that uses three proven active technologies in their highest ever concentrations to prevent hair follicle growth during the active hair growth phase. Basically, your hair will come back slower and with less density, reducing your need for hair removal. You use it by applying it to shaved or waxed body areas twice a day for two months or until body hair appears invisible at which point you can reduce your dosage down to three times a week to maintain results. Changes should be apparent by the second week point, with hairs becoming increasingly finer and in-grown hairs disappearing entirely (um, amazing).
The 240mL bottle should last you a few months when used on specific body zones, like the legs, and the serum currently offers the lowest one-year cost of lasting hair removal compared to any other technology or product available. Already available in the United Kingdom, a look at the reviews and blogs from across the pond seem to suggest that Inhibitif is safe and actually works if you stick with it. Luckily, Canada will be the second country in the world to have Inhibitif, exclusively sold at Shoppers Drug Mart beginning August 2013.
UPDATE: We took part in Inhibitif’s 8-Week Challenge. Check out the results here.
