Spring Facial Hair remover – Review.

Hello Girls,


Today I am going to review a hair removal product that has become my recent love. I am the type of person who hates visiting beauty salons. I go there only for threading my eyebrows that too at the insistence of my mum.


I epilate my hands and legs. I do my own facial, pedicure and manicure at home.

For some unknown reason I have never felt comfortable at beauty salons. And, with that said, like almost all the girls, I wanted to get rid of the hair growth on my upper lip. I tried threading once and I did not like it. More than the pain factor I detested the extra time it made me spend in the salon.

I was looking out for at home facial hair removal ideas and I stumbled upon this product. I purchased it from ebay. I got it almost 4 months back at approx Rs. 80-100. (I don’t remember the exact price). And as it was very cheap I did not think much about the purchase.


How to use:

I was supposed to bend the spring like this and place it on the skin as pictured and move the handle inwards. The mechanism is similar to that of an epilator. The spring grabs the hair from its roots and pulls it out.


Size:


Experience:

It helped in removing the hair without any hassles and I am completely in love with this product. It takes minutes to remove hair from the upper lip area. The hair, as it is being pulled out from the roots, takes time to grow back. When it grows, it neither looks coarse nor grows back faster.  

Pain Factor & Stuffs to watch out:

Yes.! As it involves pulling hair from its roots, it pains. I have very low pain tolerance level and when I tried it for the first time, it was painful. But as I am used to it now, it doesn't bother me much. As I said just like epilating. So, if you feel epilating hurts you then this is not for you.

And as it involves grabbing hair and pulling out, we must not use this on wet skin or right after a hot bath as the skin will be loose during those times.

I have used it for the past four months and so far it has not caused any irritation.

After using it, I pull the spring horizontally, tap to get rid of excess hair and wash it. And before using it, I soak it in hot boiling water for some time and dry it to ensure hygiene. Instead you can also sanitize it with alcohol.  

And, as they are not designed for precise removal, it cannot be used for eyebrows. Check out the Pin depicting the importance of eyebrows here

Now, Summing up the pros and cons:

Pros:

1. Very effective.
2. Non-messy.
3. Hair does not grow back coarser or faster.
4. Involves pulling hair from roots akin to epilating.
5. Product is very travel friendly.
6. Easy to clean.
7. Very cheap and one comes a long way.
8. As I always ensure it is clean, I did not experience any breakouts or allergies because of this.

Cons:

1. Hurts.! But if you are used to epilating then this will not be a problem.
2. Cannot be used on wet/loose skin.
3. Cannot be used to tweeze eye brows.
4. Not widely available.

VERDICT:

I Love this and will definitely recommend and repurchase.!

Love,
