Hi! I have used vaniqua on and off for 1.5 years.. I have a love hate relationship with it.. It does work..hair growth is reduced.. however as soon as you stop within 2 weeks it is back to normal.. also it changes your hair.. it makes it tough, and hard to deal with.. when plucking it breaks instead of pulling out.. I quit using it because it caused so many ingrowns.. It really does work.. my hairs grew much slower, but they became different, tougher, brittel, and made a mess out of my face so I quit.. your milage may vary..
