A Dream Come True! Review: Magic Shave

Nobody likes hair removal; hell nobody likes hair if it isn’t on top of your head. And I am quite hairy, I can admit this. My arms, legs, chin, mustache and coocoo-ca-choo all need maintenance. I spend almost $200 a year buying depilatories, Razors and shaving cream and I’ve been searching for an easier, less expensive and semi-permanent solution.



Well I haven’t found a semi-permanent solution but Magic Shave is easier to use and cheap. Magic Shave is a razorless shave cream formulated for men but oh well. I learned about Magic Shave from Being Mrs Jones, she reviewed it a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t believe it. So the next day I went to Target and they only had the Cream, I picked it up anyway. Then I went to Walmart and got the powder. They sat in a bag on my floor for about a week because I was a bit scared and skeptical. I mean how well can a $2 product work?!?!



Mix equal amounts of powder and water then spread it on.

The powder is wonderful; it works fast and is quite effective. The only issue is that the powder did dry my skin out. Magic recommends you use a spatula to remove the hair but if you don’t have just use an old rough wash cloth or plastic card. If you have course, thick, hard to remove hair go ahead and get the powder but just remember to moisturize well afterwards.  The powder comes in four formulas; regular, extra strength, fragrant and skin conditioning.



The cream is easier to use but it takes longer to work and isn’t as strong as the powder. There were patches of hair left on my leg. There is shea butter in the cream so it’s moisturizing, unlike the powder. The cream comes in three formulas; regular, mild and smooth.


I test the effectiveness of hair removal products by how well it performs on my lady parts aka Lucille Bald. The powder worked fast (almost immediately) and got the job done. There wasn’t any burning or any other unpleasant feeling.

Now Magic Shave has been around for over 100 years and I feel the need to stock up before they realize what they’ve created! A wonderful product for only $2!!!

Hello Ladies. I am 46 year old Black Man I was searching for information about the long term usage of Magic Shave when I stumbled across this site. I have used Magic Shave for over 15 years. I started with the powder and went to the cream but now I am back to the powder because it is stronger. I have always applied the paste on with a regular butter knife that is dull. I do not use the serated edge side. I also mix my paste up in an old shea butter container by adding water and closing up the container and shaking it until I barely hear it splash. If you hear it splash you may have to add more powder.It takes some time getting use to the slight discomfort; I usually read or do some pushups to take my mind off of the procedure.

Can u say 2nd degree chemical burn? This junk is dangerous. My skin is burned, painful, swollen, red…worse than boiling water scalded! Oh, AND about half the hairs remained in place like nothing ever happened. Summary: this will disfigure you and burn your skin leaving your hair half in place like some diseased rat. Should be illegal.

I used the skin conditioning for my arm pits and legs. It worked great, no burning and I used a rough wash cloth to remove the cream in the shower. I can’t wait to try it “down there”. Thanks for the info!
