It can’t be denied that men’s body image seems to favor a more hairless or minimalist body hair look. While you might be used to shaving your face when it comes to the other areas of your body a more gentle touch is often preferred.
Don’t be embarrassed either body shaving or manscaping for men is likely much more common than you think and if you are an active sporty person then it is actually preferred to have less body hair.
But while many of the methods I’ am going to talk about can be used on areas of your body like your arms and legs we’re focusing on an often ignored area.
Shaving your pubic area is something most men will probably be embarrassed about but just like shaving your arms, legs, and chest it is often going to be more common than you think.
Now many men won’t want to use a razor or scissors to do this, quite understandably so that means your best option is to use a hair removal cream.
Hair removal creams are a little divisive in the beauty community some people love them while others think they are basically a snake oil that doesn’t work. The good news is that hair removal creams do actually work but the bad news is knowing how to get the right one for you.
There is actually quite a lot of variety when it comes to hair removal creams but a lot of the difference in quality.
So, to help men who are looking to remove their body hair down there I’ve compiled this helpful guide of some of the best hair removal creams for men.
Hair Removal Creams
Before we get to my list let’s take a closer look at how these creams work shall we? Hair removal creams are known as depilatories they work by breaking down the protein in hair they come into contact with.
This then separates the hair from the skin making it easy to remove and wipe away.
Using hair removal creams while having a bath or shower is recommended because the water helps wash away any excess hair and makes it a much cleaner job. However, the main problem people have with hair removal creams is that they are either poor quality so don’t work very well or they can be uncomfortable.
Potential side-effects include itching and reddening skin and this situation can be made even worse when the cream comes into contact with sensitive areas of your body. So, even if you are comfortable using hair removal creams many men will be hesitant to use it on their pubic hair.
You also need to take into account that every person’s hair is different and I don’t just mean in color. Some people’s body hair is stronger and more durable so the hair removal cream might be too weak to really help.
So, now you know more about hair removal creams which are the most popular when it comes to more private hair removal?
Nair Hair Removal Cream
Nair hair removal cream is more famous in the United States that it is in the UK but it is still available and a good choice for male hair removal. Nair even has its own men’s range of creams in various sizes designed to tackle thicker hair. But how does it measure up and is it worth trying?
Reviews for men’s Nair hair removal cream are quite positive overall with many claiming it can be effective for tackling hair removal around your pubic area.
However, some men have also claimed that it was infective and irritating so it really depends on your hair type.
If you have thinner hair then it could certainly work but I would recommend caution and only applying a small bit of cream first to see what happens.
Nair might be a big name in some places for hair removal but when it comes to men’s privates there are likely better options available.
Nad’s Hair Removal Cream
One thing you will notice very quickly when searching for a hair removal cream for your pubic region is that manufacturers will really if ever come out and say the cream is okay to use on your genital region they will most often advise you not to use it on those areas.
However, Nad’s have cleverly subverted that with their name haven’t they?
Their hair removal cream is a popular choice for manscaping all around your body and many customer reviews state they have used it on their pubic hair without issue.
Nad’s hair removal cream is available in numerous different volumes and suitable for all skins types.
It’s also infused with Aloe Vera which should help make it a bit more soothing like always though I recommend only using a little cream first to see how your skin reacts.
It’s also important that you don’t keep the cream on to long especially if you are using it in more sensitive areas.
Skin Doctors Hair No More Hair Removal Pack
Skin Doctors Hair No More Hair Removal System Pack contains a hair removal cream and a scientifically developed hair growth inhibitor spray that harmlessly and painlessly removes unsightly facial and body hair, helping it grow back finer, sparser, lighter and slower.
Active ingredients include calcium thioglycolate which efficiently dissolves the proteins of the keratins in the hair without any burning sensation or skin irritation; soothing and moisturizing aloe vera to help rebalance the pH level of the skin; and allantoin, to help soothe the skin and stimulate the growth of healthy new tissue.
Veet Shaving Cream
Veet is a popular choice for hair removal creams in the US and their men’s hair removal in-shower cream is one of the few products that actually come right out and say it is fine to use on your pubic regions.
However, proper care will still need to be taken and you should test your skin first before applying a lot of the cream.
The cream also hydrates your skin for up to 24 hours and is lightly fragranced as well.
It’s certainly a good choice for men looking to try hair removal cream for the first time just ensure you follow the manufacturers instructions carefully as the cream can only be left for 6 minutes at maximum.
MALIN+GOETZ Vitamin E Shaving Cream
We aren’t quite finished with the list of hair removal cream for private parts and this amazing Vitamin E Shaving cream is also worth mentioning. This cream isn’t part of their men’s range of product it’s actually designed for more sensitive skin and it’s rich in Vitamin E which is good for your skin.
This cream includes aloe vera and high amounts of vitamin E so is more soothing and hydrating. Reviews are quite split some people love the cream while others find it unsuitable for their hair but mostly are good.
However, men have been relatively universal in their praise when it comes to its ability to remove hair in more sensitive areas. The creams stronger focus on being more soothing on sensitive skin makes it a great first choice if you are unsure what cream to use as well.
Acorelle Hair Removal Cream
Acorelle is another common name in the US when it comes to beauty products and they have a range of different hair removal creams. Their cream contains aloe vera and jojoba oil so is nourishing and soothing and as received good reviews from customers.
The cream also comes with is own spatula-like tool which is designed to help you remove the cream. It’s one of the few creams I’ve seen that offers this extra tool and while it isn’t strictly necessary it could help first-timers and people new to using hair removal cream.
Again this isn’t a cream specifically designed for use around your pubic region but men have used it.
Hair Removal Safety Tips
So, that completes my look at some of the popular hair removal creams for men to try if they want to lose some hair down there.
And while I have touched upon this already it is worth reiterating. Many of these hair removal creams are not designed for use on your genitals or around your pubic regions.

However, many people do still use them for this purpose however it’s important that you carry out a patch test first. Use a little bit of cream and see if it works before applying more, remember every cream will have different instructions for use.
Some can be kept on for as long as 10 minutes while others might be much smaller. So, make sure you read up on the instructions carefully before applying the cream. It’s always better to be safe and no one wants to risk injury down there, do they?
