So I really like the idea of threading to remove facial hair. However, I don’t want to pay to have it done (student saving all my money for nail polish, obviously) or have to leave my apartment and then take the bus home with a bright red face. I actually had a lovely friend teach me how to do it (thanks Laala!) but I am very slow and uncoordinated at it, so I end up getting frustrated and missing lots of spots. Enter, the Facial Hair Remover by Epicare*.
I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the Facial Hair Remover by Epicare, but I was willing to give it a shot because it seemed like such an easy solution. So is it a gimmick? 100 % not. I am a huge fan of this tool, and I think it is easy to use, super affordable, and relatively painless (this is hair removal we’re talking about after all).
Basically, the way the Facial Hair Remover by Epicare is there is a long spring with a handle on each end– they come in 8 different colours, mine is blue. You bend the tool in half and then slowly roll the handles inwards and upwards to grab onto any small hairs and pull them out. Like I said, there is a bit of pain but it WAY less than tweezing. It works best on hairs that aren’t too long, I imagine if you were using it on quite long hair it would be more painful to pull out. I also find you may miss a few very tiny hairs, but in general it really gets most of them and it’s very easy to redo a spot if you need to.
Not only is the Facial Hair Remover by Epicare really easy to use, it’s easy to transport as well, as it’s slender and fits in your bag easily. Plus if you’re worried about taking sharp items with you, this is really just a big spring so it’s very safe. Also, unlike waxing, you don’t have to wait long to remove the hair again. It does leave some redness behind, but that fades just like it does after tweezing or waxing.
Sorry, no photos of this product in use! But believe me when I say the Facial Hair Remover by Epicare is amazing. It’s only $15 on Nail Polish Canada (free Canadian shipping with no minimum) and worth every cent. Plus I can’t see how you would ever need to replace it, so I will be using mine for a long time. You can definitely expect to see this in my January favourites!
Have you ever tried anything like the Facial Hair Remover by Epicare? I would love to know what you think, and let me know if you have any questions about it!
