Wouldn't it be too harsh for your face ? I can never seem to get all the hair with wax either, even on my legs, but i always finish the work with tweezers.

You could try it but it is a bit harsh. My friend uses a facial epilator without any problems but I find it too harsh. Have you tried threading?

I have an Emjoi Tweeae and although quite painful, it is an inexpensive alternative to my monthly waxes.

I strongly recommend when you get it always make sure you clean it and sanitize it. Once I forgot and I got the worse breakout I ever had (seriously). It keep me away from it for about a year cause I was scared to use it again. I used it recently on my chin and got no breakouts, so I then went ahead and used it on my cheeks. Everything was ok, but I also recommend a patch test and some cortizone cream afterward.

I think at home threading would be a better option.
I think this one is good and they ship fast.

Finishing Touch is also a good alternative to an epilator. Other companies like Remington duplicate it as well. You can find these products in the hair styling product aisles of pharmacies, Walmart, Target, etc. It basically trims the peachfuzz to the point where your skin is smooth & hairless. It's painless & won't harm your skin either. It's pretty inexpensive as well.

It is a good method to remove your facial hiar with an epilator. You should be prepare for pain because your face is a sensitive area. Epilation is more effiecient than plucking or shaving, its effects will last up to 2 weeks.

Yes, I use epilator only to remove facial hair and it does work. It makes pain, but it brings good results.

Why dont you get laser hair removal if you want the smoothest 

I wouldnt risk damaging your face if you are scared.

If you want a long lasting epilation, then you should do a permanent epilation, a laser epilation, but this procedure costs money. Not every person can afford it. Instead, an epilator is perfect for long lasting effect up to 4 or 6 weeks, depending on what type of hair you have and how fast your hair grows back. So, you can choose a manual epilator like Bellabe or electric epilator like Emjoi AP-9L Epi Slim.

i think it is better to go for threading first. 

 

epilators are tricky things. it can hurt really badly for the first timers. especially if you havent tried it on your other body parts before.

 

some of my friends have tried their hair above their lips. and it is really sensitive.

 

the worst part is actually ingrown hair from epilation. 

so i guess its better to try it out on a small patch or go for threading.
