Formula 103 for Legs & Bikini Line

Formula 103 for  Legs and Bikini Line is a razorless hair removal cream like nothing else available.  Formulated with herbal properties, it is effective, mild and easy-to-use removing hair in the bikini area and the legs and leaving your skin feeling amazingly, smooth and soft.

Formula 103 is a depilatory originally developed especially for the shaving needs of African-American men.   But, here's a little secret for you, African-American women discovered how great it was and began using it, too.   Formula 103 is formulated to be soothing and healing for the skin.   Formula 103 softens the hair and dissolves it without damaging the root. It also moisturizes the skin so much that you will not even need an after shave. Consequently, the formation of bumps is prevented. Perfected after six years of intensive laboratory research and testing in five countries, Formula 103 can remove even the coarsest hair. Formula 103 has a unique herbal fragrance.

In 2008, Halsik began working on yet another reformulation of Formula 103.  While Formula 103 was already the best depilatory on the market, they knew they could make it even better.  The original formula leapfrogged the depilatories currently on the market, providing men who had used a depliatory in the past with a far superior alternative.  The next goal for Halsik, one even more ambitious, was to develop a product for men (and now women) who had never used a depilatory before.  The goal- irritation free hair removal.  In 2009, the new Formula 103 was ready for distribution.  The new Formula 103 is as much better than the previous version as the previous version was better than any other depilatory on the market.  

Formula 103 for Legs and Bikini Line
  • The constitution of the new and improved formula is an almost 60% herbal formulation.  The result is the product is even milder and gentler on the skin.This makes it virtually irritation free.  
  • Formula 103 has achieved a breakthrough in the industry by the addition of an herbal fragrance.  If you remember the old days of depilatories that had an odor that would run the family out of the house, you were thrilled by the reduced smell of the previous version of Formula 103.  The new and improved formula takes another leap forward with no unpleasant odor at all.
  • Test subjects also reported improved consistency of results.

Versus brands purchased in drug stores, I must say that this product gets top ratings. The fragrance was very mild and not overpowering like the drug store brands. I have coarse hair and the estimated product leave on time of 7 minutes was quite accurate. With the drug store brand it took nearly 15 minutes or more to remove hair as instructed.
ProsMild fragrance and short removal time.
ConsDrug store brand has at least 5 ounces in the package, where as this product only has 3 ounces in the package at double the.price.

Smooth, Hairless Skin w/o Irritation... Finally!
October 10, 2011
My boyfriend and I both have sensitive skin prone to hair bumps, so I purchased from this brand with hope for miracles. My boyfriend used the formula for men with sensitive skin with horrific results (of first-degree burns on his face), so I was extremely apprehensive about trying this product on myself. I am so glad that I took the plunge! I didn't have the slightest bit of discomfort from its application to my legs, underarms or bikini line and didn't experience any painful hair bumps afterwards. Honestly, I won't ever use a razor again!
ProsComfortable Application Doesn't Cause Hair Bumps

I had recently tried a home waxing kit. The waxing kit removed all of the hair and made me smooth down south, but I received hair or razor bumps when my hair started growing back. It was also painful and took me a long time (about a hour or so) to get it done. I tried Formula 103 because of its claim to no razor bumps. I am really impressed with the results I received. First, I should tell you, I have used Nair hair removal products before and let me tell you, Nair smells awful!. Formula 103 has a pleasant smell and it removed all of my course and kinky hair in the specified 4-5 minutes. It left me smooth and soft . My hair grew back nicely and without bumps. I was not itching either when my hair grew back. Overall, I am just happy I did not get bumps, but I got more.
Pros*no bumps *no itching *no pain * pleasant smell *short application and working time

Suprisingly okay for me

I used this product for the first time and loved it. It didn't burn and said exactly what the product stands for; however, the "shave" didn't last long. After only three days my hair began growing back.
Merchant Response:After repeated use you will notice the hair not coming back as quickly.
ProsExcellent for an easy, quick shave. I will definitely purchase this item again.
ConsHair comes back pretty fast.

More razor bumps
July 14, 2010
I purchased this product because I've loved all of the other products that I've ordered from Treasured Locks. Well, this one I do not. It says that it helps alleviate and eliminate razor bumps. Well I used the cream Monday and was happy with the results. Well, 24 hours later the razor bumps started forming as if I'd used a razor! Needless to say I was not happy at all.
Merchant Response:It is the repeated use of Formula 103 that eliminates razor bumps. One time use will not eliminate razor bumps. What we have noticed is that the most effective way to get rid of razor bumps is a combination of the Formula 103 for Legs & Bikini Line along with the Razor Bump Serum is what helps eliminate razor bumps most quickly and long term.
ProsHair comes off very easily. Cream doesn't burn the skin.
ConsCauses razor bumps the same as a razor. Not attractive on the bikini line.

Formula 103 is the best hair removal cream I have ever used. It has a very mild fragrance and is safe for those most sensitive areas. Say good-bye to waxing and hello to Formula 103.

I have mixed feelings on this product. The first few times worked great, but the last time wasn't as successful. Unfortunately, the hair grows back really fast and the product can still cause some irritation if you have sensitive skin. It is easy to use and doesn't smell to bad, but for a clean lasting look I think I would stick with waxing. This is better used between visits.
Proseasy to use no razor no pain

Just an amazing product...I used it on my legs and bikini line...left it on for 8 minutes and the result....a FLAWLESS skin feels irritation and three days later, no RAZOR BUMPS... All the products I have used before will leave razor bumps by the second or third day around my bikini line area....

I have fair skin, with dark coarse hair, and used this product on my legs. The smell was pleasant and there was minimal discomfort, but little in the way of hair removal either
Merchant Response:For coarse hair, it is necessary to leave the product on for a little longer. 10 minutes is recommended and the hair will be removed.
Prossmell comfortable to use
Consdidn't work!

Ok product

After reading the previous reviews I was excited to try this product but unfortunately it worked good for my legs but didn't do well for my underarms and bikini area. Also the my legs had to be redone less than two days again.

Whats the longest you can keep the lotion on for? I have very thick and course hair. Other products makes the hair look kinda fried, but does not remove it. I have razor bumbs and all. What should I do. (Private Area)
We don't recommend any more than 8-10 minutes.

I have thick coarse hair under my arms and "down there". I use this formula "down there" and on my underarms, and I can honestly say it does not burn or irritate like grocery store brands (just be careful not to scratch or irritate the area prior to use). On average, this lotion can be left on for about 8 minutes (no longer than 10). It works quickly and will break down and remove the hairs quicker than you think. I gently pull the hairs out or use a depilatory sponge to gently buff the hairs away. A few more hairs come off on my washcloth (I remove hair first, wash second with natural soap). For razor bump's I highly recommend Forumula 103's Razor Bump Serum. I use it and love it. Over time, it also fades the dark shadowing that thick, coarse hair leaves behind. I use it under my arms and below, and my under arm region has lightened considerably. You just have to be consistent. Try it, you'll love it. GOOD LUCK!!
