Following is a transcript of the video.
Nico Reyes: I’m always looking for easier ways to remove body hair, so I was really excited when I found out about this depilatory foam called Moujan. I think that’s how you say it. It’s basically this bubbly foam that you spray on body hair, and it’s supposed to remove it in just 10 minutes, all while leaving your skin soft and moisturized.
One problem I have with Nair or other products like it is that it usually leaves my skin feeling super dry, and my hair grows back just as fast as it does when I just shave, so I’m hoping to have smoother, softer skin that lasts longer. I think I’m ready, so let’s shake it up and then apply.[foam whooshing] I feel like getting an even, consistent layer with this foam is kind of hard, considering how much foam shoots out of this thing. It just feels like a very thick coating of foam. Alexa, set a timer for 10 minutes.
Alexa: 10 minutes, starting now.
Nico: ♪ It feels tingly! ♪
Producer: Does it?
Nico: Yeah, the bubbles are, like, popping. I just feel like it left a lot of stubbly hair. Like, where it didn’t remove it, it just shortened it.
Producer: That’s weird.
Nico: Yeah. This time I didn’t rub it in with my hands, and it looks like it’s fricking doubling in size.
Producer: Yeah, it does.
Nico: Looks huge. It’s just all coming off as if it’s a solid. Oh! [laughs] Mm, OK. So, when I don’t rub it in, it’s barely even taking off any hair. Or maybe I just gotta, like, rub a little harder, but… I feel like the foam didn’t work super great on my legs. I’m definitely left with a lot of stubble everywhere. My legs don’t feel, like, 100% smooth. So far my skin isn’t feeling dry at all — it actually feels pretty soft — but the parts that aren’t totally soft just feel stubbly, like it didn’t 100% remove the hair. The instructions don’t say that you have to rub this foam in, it just says to apply an even layer and let it sit, but weirdly enough the leg where I did rub in the foam actually removed the hair better than the leg where I didn’t.
So now let’s see how the foam works on my underarms. It’s, like, kind of working. So, unfortunately, again, this stuff did not remove the hair super well. I feel like I have a lot of hair left over, especially on this side. I still see a lot of hair on this underarm. It also stings. I think just because the skin on the underarms is so sensitive, that having this, like, chemically stuff on it just makes it very stingy. [laughs] It doesn’t feel good.
I think you can tell that I’m obviously not loving this product. It’s definitely removing some of the hair within the 10 minutes, but not enough. Like, I still have a ton of stubble and hair left behind. And even though the skin on my legs doesn’t feel dry after using the foam, the skin on my underarms is still stinging. I just think that there are better hair-removal products out there that are gonna remove your hair in the same amount of time.
