Comment:
I wrote an earlier review on this drug. At that time, I had made the tube last for 6 months I think. I have now been using Vaniqa for 2 years and I want to review it again. First, the pharmacist told me to use very little. I did that and I made the tube last for almost a year. When they say a small amount, they mean it. To use more could cause side effects. And before I start my review, I do ... Show Full Comment

Tweezing has been my go to method of removal, but that has always been time consuming and my skin was often red an ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been using this cream for over 11years. The dark hair on my chin area was really hard to remove at times, like it was deep and very strong- rooted. There was no way to keep up with tweezing and re- growth; if I had shaved, the black shaft would have been visible through my skin. Vaniqa twice a day, and what hair grows in is thinner, finer, lighter, and often has no root. I tweeze every fe ... Show Full Comment
