Nad’s Hair Removal Products: Effective or Not?

Nad's hair removal cream (and other related products) has been, and is currently, a very highly regarded personal care product. Five years after its release, the British newspaper The Guardian announced that Nad's was the best selling personal care product in Australia, grossing over $7 million. An Australian newspaper, the Sydney Morning Herald named Nad's as Australia’s best-known hair removal product.

One of the reasons that Nad's is so popular is that it is an entirely all natural product. Users have commented that Nad's is a more effective and less painful way to remove unwanted hair. The price of Nad's products is also favorable among users. The Brazilian and Bikini Wax kit is pretty affordable. Getting the same service in a salon can cost anywhere from $20-$120. Nad's is an affordable alternative for people who wish to take hair removal into their own hands.

Looking for a hair removal cream that actually works? We recommend trying StopGrow, the most effective hair remover that we've reviewed so far.

About the Company

Founded in 1992, Nad's creates and internationally distributes hair removal products. Sue Ismiel developed the concoction that launched the company after hearing her daughter express interest in removing the hair from under her arms but wanted a less painful way to do so. The original product consisted of honey, molasses, sugar, and lemon juice and was green in color.

Ismiel soon turned the garage at her home into a small factory and began to sell Nad's at several stalls in shopping centers around Australia. The brand’s true commercial success began after an investment was made in a television advertising campaign where Nad's developed a call center to take orders by phone. This allowed the brand to be sold and distributed on a much larger scale.

Nad's currently offers a wide variety of hair removal products that allow users to target specific areas of their body. Products include Body Wax Strips, Facial Wax Strips, Brazilian and Bikini Wax, Moisturizing Hair Removal Cream, Original Natural Hair Removal Gel, and Facial Wand Eyebrow Shaper. The Eyebrow Shaper comes with a stick specially designed for precision that can be used for areas of the face including eyebrows, upper lip, and chin.

The company has also expanded their efforts, creating products made for men. Nad's continues to develop and advertise new products, most recently releasing a nose waxing kit. Products can be bought in Australia, Great Britain, and the United States. Nad's has opened five laser hair removal clinics located in and around Sydney, Australia that cater to both men and women’s hair removal needs.

Nad's Hair Removal Reviews

Nad's is a very cheap alternative to other creams and professional-grade treatments. And while it doesn't offer the absolute best results it does do enough to warrant its very affordable price. Here are a few reviews for different Nad's products we found on the Internet:

Love this stuff! I use this instead of waxing. I have hair on my upper lip and for my eye brows. Easy to use, works same as wax without the heat. Do not put sticks back in tub that have water on them or gel turns to hard chunks. I use finger nail round wooden sticks and they work great. I like that I can use a small piece of material (included) I throw them in the wash and reuse. Can be used for any area, from bikini, facial spots, to legs.

Fantastic! This is so much better than regular wax – I cant use the wax that sticks to everything and is hard to remove. Follow directions carefully and it works great! Also so easy to clean up – just rinse it away with water. I used to buy the Sally Hansen natural honey wax product, but I guess they stopped making it. This is similar and works great for me.

Kimberly, Amazon reviewer

On average, the hair removal gel from Nad's gets a decent rating (which is basically what we found across multiple websites) but the strips tend to get lower ratings.

  • All natural formula is perfect for even the most sensitive skin
  • No heat required, melts with your natural body heat
  • Unique gel formula is water rinseable so there's no need to worry about making mistakes
  • Stay hair free for up to 8 weeks

Overall, Nad's does make decent hair removal products. They definitely don't provide the same results you'd see with slightly more expensive, similar items such as Skinception's StopGrow hair removal cream, but it does a well enough job.

Just keep in mind that Nad's is NOT designed to prevent future hair growth. It is a one-off treatment meaning if you want to keep the hair away forever you'll have to keep buying their products over and over again for future use.

Nad's is definitely a decent choice, though. It's far better than some of the other, more expensive creams that we've reviewed such as the very disappointing Revitol hair remover which is next to useless. But, again, this is basically no different than waxing yourself, only it's not painful. Well, as long as you don't leave it on too long.

For more serious treatments, ones that are designed to work toward permanent loss of hair, you may want to consider getting professional laser hair removal treatments done on yourself. If that option is a bit too expensive (which is understandable because it often requires several treatments to finish the job) you can also look at trying less expensive options such as using an at home laser hair removal system, which is just as effective as a professional laser but costs far less and can be done from the comfort of your own home.
