What do you guys use to get rid of facial hair? Right now I use one of those little razor things that are advertised for the bikini line. sometimes i can't pluck other hairs on my face other than my eyebrows and upper lip cause i can get ingrown hairs. damn, i want laser hair removal. lol

Do you ever wax??? I usually wax and in between appts if I can't wait for it to grow enough to wax, I use the bikini shaver thing. I've done laser on other parts, but the thought of a laser on my face kind of freaks me out.

There is a waxing kit at Sephora called Poetic Waxing kit or something like that. It is so easy to use. There are none of those strips . You simply melt the wax, smooth it on , wait for a few seconds to harden a bit then pull the wax right off. I can do a better waxing job on my upper lip than any salon could do. Check it out! Plus you are in the comfort of your own home.

just remember to apply the wax in the direction in which the hair is growing and peel the the wax in the opposite direction.

also sugaring is still a popular method of hair removal because it works well for those with sensitive skin,its water soluble,and its more comfotable than wax because it adheres to the hair only. hope this helps a bit.

if you're looking for a sugar wax, you might want to try Sally Hansen's Cold Sugar Wax. I didn't use it on my face, but I liked it because you don't have to microwave it (I always got those microwavable waxes too hot and that hurts!) and it seems to work better and come off easier than the hot waxes I've tried. I'm pretty sure they make a facial hair formula which might be even better for sensitive skin than the regular.... But I just pluck my facial hair (just brows and a few stray black hairs on the chin!) but I have tried waxing other areas!

..Sugaring is a natural method that uses a sugar paste instead of wax.The difference between wax and sugaring is it is natural 1,2it only adheres to the hair as with the wax adheres to the hair and skin which makes it more painful.Also the wax has to be heated up,where the sugaring can be done at room temp.I offer this method to my cleints who have sensitive skin.

i did check out the laser hair removal option. it seems that people of color might not get the desired result. because the laser looks for a contrast between the hair and skin, in people of color it my target melanin deposits in the skin and cause hyperpigmentation. they could use a lower concentration of light, but then you'll need to go back more often for treatments. the average cost was about $160 us per treatment. my complexion would be considered honey or copper.
