Best Hair Removal Cream UK (2023)
- Boots The Chemist
- Wilkinson Sword
The advertising for Woo Woo suggests that you may become as smooth as a dolphin. If that is exactly what you wish to become, then Woo Woo may be your choice.
The award-winning hair removal cream is one of the best on the market and is produced using Aloe Vera and Jojoba oil to help reduce redness and ensure your skin is silky smooth.
Whatsmore, the product is also vegan and suitable for those who wish to avoid any animal products- even topical ones.
Similar to most of the best hair removal creams you'll find in the UK, the Woo Woo product is available at boots in store, or slightly cheaper on: Amazon.co.uk
When it comes to hair removal cream, there is one brand that stands above the rest. There is no coincidence that Veet is the most popular, and considered the best hair removal cream by many across the UK.
The formula will give you super smooth and hairless skin in just 5 minutes. It is infused with a soothin blend of aloe and vitamin E (to prevent rashes and helps any damaged skin heal). Other creams may leave the skin feeling sensitive but Veet does not.
The cream is designed for almost any body part - whether you're trying to remove hair from your legs to bikini/trunk line, you can count of Veet's tried and tested formula. The cream is not suitable for your face - so please check the packaging to see which parts you should avoid using the cream on.
Veet is available in almost every kind of supermarket in the UK, but you can find it on Amazon.co.uk in bulk.
Nair (Tough Hair Remover)
Nair is one of the most recommended hair removal creams that we have found. The Nair tough hair remover is a specifically highly reviewed product and it is designed specifically for thick, and hardy hairs that other removal creams can't quite get at.
The product contains iliy flower extract and cottonseed oil which is there to ensure smooth, protected and beautifully moisturised skin. It's ideal for use on your legs, arms, bikini line, armpits, chest, back and feet.
Nair is available in supermarkets and drug stores (like Superdrug) but it is also available on Amazon.co.uk.
Boots the Chemist
While boots sells almost all of the best hair removal creams on this list, they also sell their own branded product.
The cream is produced to ensure it is safe and effective for even sensitive skin. With an enrichment from Aloe Vera and Shea Butter, this hair removal cream does leave your skin feeling soft and super, super smooth. It also means that the cream is safe to use on sensitive areas like your underarms and bikini line.
As an added point, the cream is also vegan and not been tested on any animals. Boots have also made the extra effort to ensure that their packaging is 100% recyclable and therefore better for our planet.

Sunny is a brand that you'll also find in Boots the Chemist. What makes the Sunny hair removal cream so great is the smell - it smells like Honeydew melon. That is very unusual.
What also makes this one of the best hair removal creams on the market in the UK is the fact that it is vegan, tested for sensitive skin and does exactly what it says on the tube - gives you a smooth hairless -fuzz free- glow.
The cream can be used on legs, arms, armpits and even your bikini line. Compared to other brands similar to this one, Sunny is fairly cost-effective.

In this review, the Wilkinson Sword hair removal cream has truly impressed us. Unlike most hair removal creams that offer longer-lasting results than shaving, this particular product has taken it a step further by delivering nearly a week of smoothness.
What makes this product even more appealing is its comprehensive package, which includes a generous 200ml of the hair removal cream itself, accompanied by a wooden spatula for application and a soothing cream designed for post-treatment care. One of the standout features, apart from its impressive longevity, is its pleasantly mild scent. Unlike some other options on the market, this product manages to strike a balance between potency and subtlety.
Using the cream is a breeze, and the added bonus of the soothing cream serves to lock in moisture and provide a pampering touch to the skin. Our experience was undeniably positive, with one minor exception. While the wooden spatula included in the kit serves its purpose, we personally lean towards plastic spatulas for application ease. Consequently, we plan to make a simple swap during our next purchase.
Well, here we come to the end of our post about the best hair removal creams you can buy in the UK. Hopefully you're able to find a product that leaves you feeling super smooth and ready for any adventure that requires exposed legs.
