Nair

Nair, most commonly known (or at least used to be) for asking who wears short shorts, is something I tried once and left it alone after that.  I was always a little weirded out that you can roll on this glop, let it sit and it removes hair but doesn’t harm your skin?  Although, they clearly have a following because it’s still in production and has a whole line of products.  Maybe I should try it again, I’m sure it’d been developed to be less fumey now.
The 80’s packaging on the left is kind of girly looking with the pink bottle and label and curvy title font.  The package has a friendly-approachable look to it both in bottle shape and label.

The new package uses the same color theme but seems a little more…I don’t know, cold and clinical?  The title font isn’t as “fun” and has been slimmed down and is sharper.  There are some curves on the side but are more sleek than the wavy banner o the old bottle.  There’s also the addition of an actual girl/lady.  I don’t know why but it always bothers me when they put a needlessly naked chick strategically posed on a package or ad.

Nair: Old or New?

So for that reason alone I’d prefer the old package but I also think it has a more welcoming look too.   The new bottle is okay (minus naked chick) but it does look like something you’d find in a hospital supply cabinet

    It’d be funny if the naked chick on the new label was bald :)

    Needless naked chick? No way! Naked chicks sell products. Though usually beer and cars, bot hair removals.

    Nair still smells like death. You’d think with what, almost 40 years on the market someone could conquer that. Everyone’s gonna know you’re a Yeti if they come to your house after using it. I don’t like either package, really- first one’s too pink and the new one looks like it’d be awkward to hold.
    @ima420r- I dig the idea of bot hair removal. Rosie needs to be smooth too!

    I like the old one better, but then I have a soft spot for bubbly lettering. I also kinda don’t like how every package seems to be blue and white nowadays, no matter what the product is. There are other colors in the rainbow!

    That “N” on the old package is just dynamite. I vote “old”. :D
