My lovely 8yr old has dark hair and olive skin. She has quite a lot of dark hair on her top lip which her class/school mates have started to comment on. I always said if this became an issue for her I would help her sort it yet I have very different colouring to her so limited experience to help her. I bought some Jolene cream bleach but the test patch was immediately too much for her sensitive skin. Does anyone have any advice on more gentle products please?
Oh bless her, dd is 11 but we are in Italy, and of course a lot of the girls are much darker than she is and have the same issue. I have heard the other mums talking about waxing, maybe take her to a proper salon and ask advice?
(I have just helped dd shave her legs for the first time this week! Bikini line next which I am rather wibbling about, and may take my own advice and take her somewhere!)
Jolene is awful, it hurts like anything. I use Nair bleach - it's in a purple box, 2 tubes that you mix in a proper tray rather than crappy Jolene powder. I have really sensitive skin & it does sting a tiny bit at the end, but I wash it off with Cetaphil & slap moisturiser on straight away & it is fine.
