  • Facial hair I like to get threading done

  • LAser is the most effective and long term

  • Best I have ever used is the epilator electric Karmin!! ;)

  • I prefer to wax my eyebrows and lips and shave my legs

  • Nads mum apparently believes is good to remove hair from face or body.

  • Just a razor that’s sharp and shaving cream made for sensitive skin. I would love to get a full wax done but that hurts.

    MOM93821 – i think she means an epilator-An epilator is an electrical device used to remove hair by mechanically grasping multiple hairs simultaneously and pulling them out.

  • I prefer a razor for my legs but I would love to remove the hair permanently by laser one day.

  • mom101628 – what is an Epaulette? Thanks. Do other Moms’ know the cost of laser removal and other methods? Interested to know. Thanks.

  • My daughter is a beautician and she told me that if you remove the hair by the roots it will not grow back as much as it used to do. I use an Epaulette and I have noticed the hair is noticeably less the longer I use it. Hope this helps.

  • I wax my eyebrows because I find it is faster and less painful than plucking (over faster anyway!) I just shave my legs and armpits, or sometimes I use depilatory cream if I have the money. I’ve tried waxing my legs but the hairs go in different directions and I did a terrible job. If I could afford to I would get everything waxed at a salon.

  • i just shave my legs etc. if i feel like splurging then i will buy the veet foam thing (i’m having a mind blank right now) you spray it on and then it takes off the hair. That is pretty easy to use and my hair is so fine anyway that i don’t need the bladeless razor to help take it off. Waxing is a lot of stuffing around and those heatless strips don’t work properly in my experience. Like i said, it could be because my hair is fine. I have never tried facial stuff but i used to get my eyebrows waxed until i got sick of having to come home and pluck the strays that were missed. In saying that, i loved the smooth feeling that i had afterwards!.

  • Wax.
    I would do laser if I could afford it.

  • Bub I forgot to add in my last post I dont use the razor on my face, I would suggest a bleaching cream, waxing or Hair removal cream.

  • Waxing if you can handle the pain, some areas of the body hurt more than others. But for me its my Razor that i use, im time poor and have found it to be quick and easy.

  • Waxing is too painful,l use a Philips razor on my legs,too easy!
