Facial hair removal is up there with the least glamorous aspects of beauty… but bear with me. This product has seriously impressed me.
When it comes to eyebrows, I have fairly non-descript ones, not overly hairy but I tend to have blonde fluffy hair which makes them look less neat than I’d like. My hair removal/brow styling method of choice is threading – it’s pretty much unbeatable for making eyebrows look neat. But as much as I like it I sometimes find it a pain to get to my favourite brow place every couple of weeks or so – it’s not the biggest chore in the world, but it’s not something I tend to prioritise – tending to prefer to look at home alternatives.
Phew, that’s a pretty long winded way of saying I love threading but for convenience use at home methods instead.
Usually I’ve opted for those mini wax face strips but recently I tried this and it’s my new favourite. Instead of a wax (which I find works well, but I have found can make my skin break out after use) this is a gel – a sticky gel that is dispensed from a pen style applicator so you have control over where it’s applied. Then, using the little fabric strips you apply and rip off – in the same way as you would with wax. Then ta-da – the hair/fuzz is gone.
The main reason I love this is how easily it washes away after use – the gel literally vanishes using just warm water – so no sticky residue on skin and you can easily was and re-use the fabric strips that come with the kit.
Overall – I’m really impressed, and as much as I love the results of threading. This is now my at-home brow shaping method of choice!
