Sponsored: Olay Shares Some Shocking Stats About Women & Hair Removal

Unwanted facial hair is a major source of unease for most gals, but are you one of the four in ten women that would rather go to the gym or pay a bill than remove unwanted facial hair? Or one of the women who would swear off sex, chocolate, or dining out for a month if it meant never having to deal with unwanted facial hair again?

It sounds extreme, but these are actual results from a recent survey conducted by Olay.

A shocking 80% of women surveyed responded “yes” when asked if they  would give up one of life’s finer pleasures if it meant saying goodbye to those pesky little dark hairs for all eternity.


Why does unwanted facial hair have to be such a deep source of shame and embarrassment? 96% of women surveyed regularly take great care to remove unwanted facial hair, and do so at least 5 times a month. (To the four percent of women who choose to brazenly rock a mustache, we salute you.) Approximately 18 million women who regularly remove facial hairs are mores stressed out by their efforts to disguise or treat this problem than they are by their finances.

The solutions to the problem can be equally vexing – bleaching, waxing, or threading can be costly, and have side effects of redness and irritation. To this end, Olay has developed a unique, 2 step facial hair removal system – the Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo. This at-home treatment removes fine to medium facial hair in 6 minutes, without redness or irritation! Doesn’t that sound remarkably stress-free?
