    Facial Hair Removal Tool!

    Facial Hair Removal Tool! 7th Nov 12 at 12:33 PM
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Epistick-Epilator-Facial-Hair-Removal/dp/B004LNXA0Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352291343&sr=8-1

    I bought one of these a few years ago. For removing hair on the face it's perfect. It pulls hair out at the root, so it lasts longer than shaving, and is kinder to your skin than waxing or creams. You just bend the wand and twist the handles and it removes everything.

    £1.95 at the moment with free delivery, no batteries required.

    Glad to help This video demonstrates how to use it properly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsIfT_7FaTs but it's very simple, same principle as threading really!

    Jeez, that's really going to hurt! Just like multiple tweezer yanks all at once..... I applaud those who are brave enough to give it a go though, and a good price to try though but my eyes are still watering from looking at the pic so not for a wuss like me.

    I don't think it's as bad as tweezing but that doesn't really hurt me either to be honest!

    My skin is too sensitive for removal/bleaching cream and I was worried waxing would damage my skin, so this ended up being the best thing for me. It's not bad once you get used to it, but nothing suits everyone.

    This one is slightly cheaper at £1.85. Thanks for posting OP, I'm going to give it a go. I get my eyebrows threaded and it's not painful and is really effective so this is definitely worth a try.

    I'd give it a try but I hate plucking so much. Will stick with the creams for now!

    Ordered! Never heard of these before, but for the price it's certainly worth giving it a bash. I've got an increasing amount of fair, bum fluff type hair on my chin and top lip which is always more visible on a sunny day! I usually trim it all with scissors! I've also got the bum fluff stuff on sides of face, jaw etc but I don't want to start messing with those areas

    I wouldn't bother, I bought one off eBay for 99p exactly the same, it doesn't work for me, I'll stick to my plug in one
  • glindathegoodwitch
    Ebay have these for 99p with free postage from a Hong Kong seller so you usually have to wait a few weeks for delivery Item number: 280758929187 a UK seller has them for £1.69 free p&p item number: 180894637119

    These hair removing tools are good they do take a little bit of practise to get the right angle but they are easy to use once you get the hang of it.

    Thanks just bought one, thought I would give it a go.
  • sleepyme
    Just seen that a seller is selling them from the UK for £1.69, they've sold 250 of them. Can't remember the sellers name but seems a bargain and will be faster delivery than the ones from overseas.
