I can’t honestly recall how I became aware of this product’s existence, but I’m grateful to whoever informed me about it. I’ve been using Andrea’s Gentle Crème Bleach for about five years now and am still using it as of this moment.
Bleach and Activator
Ages ago, I tried Sally Hansen’s Crème Hair Bleach and it was messy to apply although it was effective. But what turned me off was that the activator and bleach completely dried up inside their jars after just a few weeks. Since then, I always stuck with Andrea’s Crème Bleach because it was a lot less messy to use and it bleaches faster.
It’s very easy to use. Mix a 1:2 ratio of crème activator and crème bleach then apply it on the area of hair that you want to bleach. Try to cover the hair with the product as much as possible.

What I don’t like about Andrea Gentle Crème Bleach for the Face:
Similar to other bleaching products, you should always do a patch test first to see if your skin can tolerate the product or if you’re allergic to it.
I use this to bleach hair on my upper lip and on my eyebrows. I only have a few strands of very small hairs on my upper lip so it bleaches faster than my eyebrows. On my eyebrows, it takes about more than 10 minutes to achieve the color I want for my eyebrows. The entire set lasts me for about a year or even more for both my brows and upper lip hair. The whole set goes a long way indeed.
The first and only time that it irritated my skin was when I applied the bleach a few hours after shaping my brows. My bad, I know. It shouldn’t be used on sensitive, sunburned, irritated, peeling, cut or broken skin according to the instructions.
As I’ve said, it bleaches hair quickly but I noticed that no matter how long I let it stay on my eyebrows, it doesn’t over-bleach. The result was always on the same light brown color.
This crème bleach has been my upper lip hair savior for so long, making it totally invisible. It has also spared my brows from looking mismatched with my current hair color, a light shade of brown. I recommend this to those who are just newbies when it comes to bleaching their eyebrows. I’ve consumed a total of about three sets already and will be glad to continue purchasing it again and again.
