If you've ever tried threading or waxing I'm sure you know it stings or hurts. I've never tried bleaching so I don't know how that feels. Well rest assured, there is an alternative in removing facial fuzz.
I can't remember where I first saw this neat little gadget, probably in some store in Hong Kong a while back but I never got around in purchasing it.
It's a steel spring facial hair remover which removes hair very similar to the threading method, though I think it doesn't hurt at all.
I got it from Deal Extreme for less than $3 plus free shipping (buy here), so even if it didn't work out, it wasn't a huge waste of money.
Hmm..where to start.. well it definitely works but it takes some practice to get it right. The spring needs to be bent into a U and you twist the handles outwards so the hairs will get trapped in the spring and thus be yanked out. It's not as bad as you think, unless you have sensitive skin. I think it's similar to the feeling of threading but with less pain involved (it may vary from person to person).
As easy as it is to use, I was a bit disappointed that it didn't pull all the fuzz out (but enough was gone), most likely because it's difficult to maneuver around my face. But I can still see this as a worthy investment, for those who don't have time to get waxed/threaded, to get the quick touch ups.
And if you're curious, I tried this on my legs and it hurts. Cleaning is simple, just gently pull the spring apart, spritz some alcohol on and rinse.
I also ordered a mini Hello Kitty nail dryer from Deal Extreme. Sometimes when the weather is too humid, it takes forever the polish to dry, or I'm just in a rush. It was only about $6 with free shipping.
The dryer uses 2 AA batteries and it's quite loud, so I wouldn't recommend anyone using this at night
Sorry if you're leaving comments and I'm not replying back, I haven't gotten back into the habit of doing so, but I still enjoy reading them =) Also, I'm quite flattered that so many people are following my blog! I'll definitely need to hold a contest again later this year <3
