I have naturally blonde hair, which means that I’m not blighted by the pain of having dark facial hair. But it does mean I have a lot of ‘fluffy’ hair around my eyebrow area. Especially between my eyebrows. I discovered the wonders of threading earlier this year, and whilst I love it as a hair removal technique – I’m just not organised enough to fit the trips to the salon in regularly enough.
So I’ve taken to waxing my eyebrows myself.
I never thought I’d be able to do this myself, but the strips I have been using are so easy.
The Veet Ready to use Facial Wax strips for face packet comes with 20 and that’s enough for 20 eyebrow-tidying sessions. It also comes with sachets of soothing oil, but I don’t really like to use these.
Downside is that the strips are opaque, so I cant see through them – so it only really works for the middle bit between the brows as it’s a bit risky to place them too close to the darker hair – unless I want to rip half a brow off by mistake.
So the wax is a quick and easy way to get rid of the fuzzy bits, then I use tweezers to do the more precise shaping part. Works for me, although I would love to just get them threaded every couple of weeks – this is more convenient for me.
I have another facial waxing product to test out – I have had it for a while but I had misplaced it. Now it’s found I thought I would do this review first and follow up with the other one, to compare the difference.
The Veet facial waxing strips are around £5 from Boots (not an affiliate link!)
