In our continuing search for new hair removal creams, we recently stumbled upon Revitol Hair Removal Cream.
Revitol is a well-known skin care company, and their stuff ranges from stretch mark creams to skin brighteners, cellulite creams, and much more. We had been hearing so many good words about their hair removal cream that we HAD to try it.

As with all chemical depilatories, all you have to do to get rid of unwanted hair is apply the product, wait a few minutes, and wipe it off (also see our guide here). This is all absolutely pain free if done correctly.
That said, probably one of the greatest features of the Revitol cream is that it can be used on any area of the body: on your underarms, face, bikini line, back, legs, etc.
Is Revitol hair removal cream safe?
As usual we recommend to check with your doctor to make sure everything is ok, or you can simply apply the cream on a small portion of your skin and check it out after a few minutes, if nothing happens then you’re good to go 🙂 but generally speaking yes, the cream is safe.
So we tried the product, wiped it off after 7-15 minutes (it takes a bit longer than regular creams) and what we saw really surprised us. Not only did it remove almost all the hairs, but there was no burning or itching feeling AT ALL, and the skin was left silky smooth.
The final results were pretty good when compared to most drug store hair removal creams; we didn’t see any hairs grow back until the 7th day after using the product, which is almost above the average duration.
The smell, on the other hand is not very pleasant… yep, we gotta admit this product pretty much stinks! That’s pretty much the case with all hair removal creams though. In the end, we aren’t too worried about the smell because we just want to get rid of those hairs!
- Calcium hydroxide
- Green tea extract
- Aloe Vera
- Vitamins A, C, and E
- Mineral oil
The main active ingredient is calcium hydroxide. Although this is a strong chemical, it is gentler than the sodium hydroxide used by many hair removal creams. This is probably why Revitol takes a bit longer to remove hair (and also why it creates less irritation).
It also includes Aloe Vera, mineral oil, and natural plant extracts, which are all natural ingredients. This makes the cream better for sensitive skin and also adds a moisturizing effect that reduces irritation.
The cream is based on bioactive ingredients with dilatator agents, which will loosen up the cells around follicles and make even the toughest hair fall off easily.
- Natural ingredients
- Can be used on any area of the body
- Moisturizing effect
- Takes longer than other creams, up to 15 minutes
- Not the best smell
- Not available in retail stores, just online
My impression after a few days using the cream
The product felt awesome. It’s easy on the skin, and it gives almost immediate results. All I had to do was apply it and wipe it off. That’s it! In a couple of minutes, I had perfectly smooth and hairless skin. No burns or rashes. I was surprised.
I also noticed that frequent usage of this cream slowly starts to inhibit the growth of the hair. Over time, my hair follicles had become less active, and the hairs got thinner and lighter.
Is it really 100% natural?
This product is based on a mix of ingredients extracted from plants, minerals, and other natural sources. The idea behind this cream is to not attack or irritate your skin. Many hair removal creams are very intrusive, as they are based on synthetic chemicals. These can cause rashes, allergic reactions, and over time, they can damage the skin tissue.
The Aloe Vera extract will help your skin rejuvenate, while Vitamin E and A blend with green tea extracts to smooth and soften the skin texture. Since it is based mostly on natural ingredients, I found that the Revitol cream can be applied on most body parts, including sensitive areas like the upper lip, underarms, and bikini line.
As usual, just make sure to keep the cream away from extra sensitive surfaces, such as genitals, freshly injured or tattooed skin, and eyes. Don’t be like me, I’ve made this mistake once and never will again!!
The Revitol cream does not contain any powerful allergens. However, just to be safe, I recommend you take a small allergy test before you start using it. Do it on the day prior to the first usage.
Pick a small area of skin, about one square inch, and apply the cream to it. Let it stay there for about a minute, then wipe it off. Wait a day and then look for any reaction, rashes, or other side effects.
What’s in the box?
Nothing special here, you will get a blue tube of cream with a short instructional pamphlet, where you can find everything about the ingredients, possible side effects, etc.
Make sure you read everything carefully and talk to your doctor if necessary.
What’s so good about it?
You will love this product if you have sensitive skin. As mentioned before, it is based on natural ingredients, so the possibility of allergic reactions or side effects are kept to a minimum.
Another benefit of this cream is that it will inhibit the hair growth, and it can be used anywhere on the body. Ingrown hairs and razor cuts will be a thing of the past, not to mention the pain and rashes caused by waxing.
Well, nothing is perfect!
One downside is the price. To be honest, it is a little high especially if you’re used to common brands that you find in retail stores. Though that scared me away initially, the safety it offers totally got me over it. So my personal opinion is, spend a bit more to get a better product 🙂
Where can I buy Revitol hair removal cream?
If you are wondering where to buy Revitol, don’t worry. Usually, many of the best beauty shops are selling the product, but the bigger brands have a better exposure on the shelf.
If you can’t find this cream at the local beauty shop, you will be able to buy it online.
Can I get Revitol from other stores like Target, CVS, or Walmart?
Short answer for this is NO, you can’t. You can sometimes find it at beauty shops, but the easiest place to buy it is Amazon.com.
What’s the verdict? Is the Revitol cream worth your money?
I wanted to try a non-retail hair removal cream and I gotta say I’m pretty happy with this product. Overall, it’s an outstanding hair removal cream with lots of great features and relatively few downsides.
