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?

Have you ever shaved?

Re: Using epilator on face?

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. https://www.getfinishingtouch.com/
