Weird nair experience

I’ve used Nair on my legs before. Not all that frequently (usually when i have to be smooth in a hurry and dont feel like shaving) but at least 10 times, and I’ve always been happy with the results.

To my surprise when I used it two days ago it left tiny red dots on my legs. Not everywhere, only in certain spots. I thought it was odd.

Anyone have any clues to why this could have happened?

You can develop a reaction to products like this over time, which is why they advise a test patch before each use.

It’s also possible you had used a different product on the area that combined and caused a reaction. Depilatories are tricky, and they can cause bad reactions, even in consumers who have used the same product many times before with no incident.
