Works great for me!,

This review is from: Nair Hair Remover Body Cream for Men, 8-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 3) (Health and Beauty)
This must be one of those items that works great for some people and horribly for others. I purchased this a little bit hesitently after reading the negative reviews, but eventually decided it was worth a shot.
I wanted to use this to get rid of the hair on my back. So I smeared it all over with some contortions and set a timer for 15 minutes. The smell at first wasn't bad at all, but it quickly turned into a nasty, chemical smell that reminded me of the perms my mom and sister did once. It wans't horribly overpowering though, just irritating.
After the 15 minutes were up I used a washcloth and wiped all the hair off. It seemed to work best if you were slow and methodical in this step. I also found myself rinsing the washcloth often to get the hair off. Then I jumped in the shower and rinsed and washed with soap.
In the end I ended up with a perfectly smooth, hairless back and zero irritation. So far its been a week and there is no stubble, so I'm happy with the results.

Any tips for spreading it all over your back even the hard-to-reach spots? Can you apply it with a back scrubber brush or loofa or something?

I can just barely reach every part of my back, guess I'm lucky.
I guess you could use a loofa or brush, but I'm sure it would fall apart over time. There are lotion applicators, do a search for "body buddy" on amazon and take a look, but I'm not sure how well those would hold up either.

Thanks for your advice but I have a question, for how long the effect did last?
