I LOVE this. You're gorgeous so you're going to look fantastic no matter what, but I've got some suggestions for small improvements:

  • Blush. You've said you don't like the way it looks, but I think you need something. In photos the absence of blush looks jarring and was the first thing I noticed. Maybe try an extremely subtle color like Tarte's Exposed (neutral) or Benefit Dandelion (very light pink)? Also, maybe try visiting some makeup counters for advice on the application on your face. It's possible you haven't liked blush because you haven't learned the best location for your particular face shape? Here, you're going for a sophisticated look, so I think it would look great applied on the sides on your cheekbones. Then sweep only what's left on the brush onto the apples as a last step. You only want a tiny touch of color there.

  • Eyebrows. Yours are lovely in today's style, but you want something timeless so that your grandchildren can post their pretty grandma on r/oldschoolcool one day and no one will say "what's up with her eyebrows?" (Trust us: those of us who lived through the 90s thought our skinny brows looked fantastic. Looking back - not so much. Classic is best!) Go for more of a rounded shape on the inside corners, don't come in so far on the inner corners, and, overall, use a lighter touch guided by the shape of your actual brows. Your natural brow shape looks very pretty, so your effort should be on lightly shading those and not so much extending and amplifying.

  • I love the bold lipstick, but I agree with another commenter that it's a little too purple and is washing you out a bit. I appreciate that it matches the roses, though :)

  • Minor things for eyes. I love the upper liner and lashes. You nailed retro but timeless! The frosty light color on in your inner corners extends a little too far out. Use a smaller brush to keep it closer to the corners. It looks like you've lined your lower lid, and I think it's making your eyes look smaller. I don't like the lower liner on your inner corner, either. I'd ditch the lower liner in deference to what you already have: pulling some of the warm brown eyeshadow down on your lower lashline and subtle mascara on the lower lashes.

  • The foundation does look a little cakey, particularly around your jawline. You've gotten some application tips, but I see what looks like dry patches of skin on your chin and jaw. Have you tried any chemical exfoliants to smooth your skin? Another thing that may help is dermaplaning. I got these and it gets all the peach fuzz off, exfoliates, and helps makeup look seamless with skin. It seems intimidating but it's pretty easy!

I randomly came across that photo yesterday (god knows why I took it in the first place, I was in a taxi in Beijing) but I had no idea my hyperpigmentation had faded so much since that photo was taken in April 2018. I don't do anything too special, the usual sort of stuff, but I have to say Skinceuticals CE Ferulic has definitely made the most difference. I got it to see if it lived up to the hype, and damn it, it did lol. Although I am "lucky" (good job, no kids, aka I am very fortunate to have some money to spend) that it doesn't totally break the bank, but dang is it expensive, just based on principle! I guess I'm sticking with it, though!

I used to just wash my face at night and in the morning in the shower, and then a friend of mine was talking to me about her "routine" one day (she's older than I and has FLAWLESS skin) which got me Googling. Which brought me to this and other skincare subs. There ensued borderline obsession. I have a ways to go, but I honestly didn't realize how far I've come! After a lifetime of doing the bare minimum, getting into a routine was kind of a drag, but once I started to see that I needed less makeup to make my skin look even, I was totally on board and now I really look forward to it every morning and night, thanks in no small part to this sub!ETA: Wow, you girls/guys are SO nice and making me feel so special! I honestly feel like I don't know what I'm doing and I swear every day I'm googling "Does X conflict with Y"? Haha. But here is what I have been doing:

Morning: Simple toner.

Skinceuticals CE Ferulic.

Kiehl's moisturizer with a couple drops of The Ordinary's squalane.

Biore Aqua Rich sunscreen (this stuff is the shit!)

​

PM:

Cetaphil cream wash.

Neutrogena oil wash (I hate the smell of this - will not be re-purchasing!).

The Ordinary Grand Emulsion 2%.

The Ordinary Buffet.

The Ordinary Rosehip oil.

The Ordinary HA Factors moisturizer if I'm feeling particularly dry that day, but lately I haven't been needing to use this because the rosehip oil is soooo moisturizing.

​

Twice a week: The Ordinary AHA + BHA peel.

Few times a week: Random sheet masks I pick up :-P (I live in Asia so I have a nice supply of random different masks on hand!).

At least once week: Innis Free volcanic clay mask (love this stuff!).Oh! And I also dermaplane every sunday using these cheap little things I get on Amazon. It's my little Sunday ritual. You know, like church. My face feels like a baby seal, and I mean really, isn't that the end goal here?

​

Like I said, I don't know what I'm doing LOL. But this seems to be working so I'll keep at it! If anyone sees I'm doing anything obviously stupid, tell me, please :)

u/bon-aventure · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I'm a little late to the party, but I know how you feel. I grew up around all boys and had the reputation of being the dirtiest out of everyone. I don't feel like I "girl" very well either, but I've figured out a few steps that help.


It's hard to say just how much time I spend on this stuff daily, it varies a lot but I've tried to incorporate it in to my regular free time activities as much as possible. I always multi-task with fun activities. I listen to music or podcasts while doing my makeup or cleaning the house. I watch netflix while doing my hair or nails. This is my reward system and helps motivate me.


Makeup is cool, but smelling good makes my feel like I'm winning the girl game. After showering, I lotion up and add perfume oil behind my ears, my wrists and a little throughout my hair. My favorite perfume is Dorian


When it comes to hair, there's no real short cuts here, just trial and error. I use a shower cap and avoid getting my hair wet or washing it unless I have time to style afterwards. Wash Monday's and Thursday's with Dry Shampoo on off days when needed.


When it comes to makeup, I like to look for inspiration in women who have coloring similar to myself.


I feel most confident when my hair is freshly dyed black and my skin is smoothed out with BB Cream: Missha #13, my brows are filled in with brow powder: Anastasia, my lashes are curled, and my lips are tinted with a red stain: Benetint

I'm also really fond of epilating in place of shaving or waxing.

Still feel like a hot mess when it comes to dressing well, but I'm working on that.

u/elizabethan · 17 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I wrote a version of this comment a couple of months ago, so here is a slightly updated version (still the same amount of cursing tho):

Okay, this is a novel but it's my journey with epilating and some things I've learned along the way. I am a total baby when it comes to pain but I managed to overcome it.

My friend epilates and convinced me to try it. I bought a cheap one on Amazon, tried it, hated it, sent it back, and bought the mack daddy Braun Silk Epil 9, and I have to tell you it was rough going at first but now I love it.

It really did hurt like everloving FUCK the first time. I have a lot of hair. A lot. Friend said it would hurt less as I go on, on which I called bullshit. It was so so so bad that I couldn't even do a full leg in one go. And forget above the knees, Jesus tap dancing Christ Almighty.

Why I love it now: friend was right, damn her. It really truly gets better the more you do it, and I mean almost immediately. The second time is like night and day compared to the first. The reason for this is that hair grows in cycles. All the hair on your legs didn't all start growing at the same time, so when you rip all that hair out, every hair isn't growing back at the same rate. I would say it's about 1/2 to 1/3 of the amount of hair that grows back long enough to epilate in about a week's time. The lower density of hair makes for a MUCH less painful experience, and for me to say that, well, you saw how much of a little bitch I was in the previous paragraph. It seriously doesn't even phase me now.

Also why I love it: when you shave hair you leave a blunt edge which can feel like the hair is thicker and makes stubble feel stubblier. When the hair is plucked, it grows back nice and tapered and is softer to the touch. Because the hairs are growing back in less density, it's less noticeable. I can go for a week without giving a fuck about the hair on my legs.

Also, shaving just fucking sucks for me. It tears up my skin, I get itchy, and then it grows back in like a day. Epilating 4 lyfe, man.

But it took some trial and error to get there, which wisdom I will now bestow upon you. Here is my routine:

  1. Exfoliate. For the love of God, before and after. Exfoliating means less dead skin means less chance for ingrown hairs. My preferred way to so this is with a hammam glove like this one. Look up the Baiden Mitten, then buy a hammam mitt on amazon because they're way cheaper. But it basically sloughs off the dead skin in rolls and is super gross and super satisfying. I did this right before the last time I epilated and my legs are soooooo smoooooth I can't even.

  2. Nothing on your skin, no lotion or whatever. The epilator tweezers might slip on the hair and break it. This leads to subparly smooth legs and ingrown hairs. So I wash in the shower with a soap that won't leave any residue, hammam it up, and then dry off and epilate.

  3. Epilate! If you have a wet/dry epilator you can do it in the shower with really hot water. This truly does alleviate the pain, and this was how I did it every time when I first started. I have found though that when I do this, the time it takes me to do my lower legs means that the water has made the hair on my upper legs much softer and prone to breakage, so the epilating isn't as effective. I usually suck it up and do it dry now.

  4. Exfoliate again! This time I do chemical exfoliation. I use Stridex pads, the kind that come in the red box. Red box is important because it's at the right pH to actually exfoliate.

  5. Soothe and/or moisturize. I slap on some aloe gel for this. Then I take care to moisturize daily afterwards.

    Rinse and repeat! I find that going more than a week in between hair ripping sessions means the growth is just enough to start to be painful again. I do this about every 5 days because my hair grows fast, but I'm hoping to extend it to a week eventually (which coincidentally is the recommended time to go in between exfoliating seshes).

    With this routine, which takes less and less time every time I do it, I don't get any bumps and only the occasional ingrown hair, usually on my upper thighs. Your legs will be kind of red and splotches after, and there may even be angry red dots where the hair was ripped out, but this goes away very quickly, and by the next day they look completely normal. It's never going to be completely smooth like with shaving, but honestly the tradeoff to me is worth it because when I shave, my legs are never perfectly smooth anyway because of the damage the razor does to my skin. Epilating is way gentler on my skin and I love the results I get.

    My final piece of advice: if you can stand it, wax everything first. Then the first growth cycle you epilate will be much less painful than if you'd started with the epilator. I used these Veet wax strips and yes it hurt like a bitch but ripping a giant bandaid off your legs is way better than slowly moving an epilator up your legs knowing that the pain just isn't going to stop. I have also done this again when I waited too long in between epilating and I just couldn't face the pain again.

    If you don't want to wax, what I've also done (I told you this was an arduous journey) is shave first with the shaver attachment on my epilator, then epilate. There are very few hairs left behind that are long enough for it to grab, so you can get used to the sensation.

    I haven't been brave enough to do my underarms yet, because the couple times I tried I was actually yelping from the pain. I may try waxing those first which I'm sure will also be an experience....

    Good luck! And remember that Amazon had a generous return policy. ;)

    PS I should mention that I have sensitive skin in general and I'm prone to things like eczema, ingrown hairs and body acne, but epilating with this routine does not exacerbate this at all.
u/Toufles · 9 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I am sorry you experienced that, sometimes people are just cruel. Hopefully they'll grow up a bit and realize having hair on your upper lip pretty much means nothing other than you're a mammal. I have a mustache too, and with my dark hair and light skin it can be pretty visible.

I have tried to wax it a few times but broke out horribly each time. My skin is pretty sensitive. At this point I think I am going to get a facial trimmer...I have been looking at this one as it has pretty good reviews and is on sale for $9.99. I wish I had a better answer, but you're definitely not alone...don't be down on yourself about having perfectly normal hair, but I hope you find a solution that helps you feel better.

If you do run into them again I would do your best to not look phased even if you are, don't feed the trolls as they say. The things they are saying speak volumes about them and very little about you.

u/aginger · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

New Purchases:

  • Timeless Hyaluronic + Vitamin C Serum - this has hyaluronic acid, glycerin, MAP, and peptides. Tried this yesterday and this morning, hope it works out.
  • Finishing Touch Flawless Hair Remover - This is a little rotary razor thing for getting rid of facial hair. I have really reactive and sensitive skin, and haven't gotten irritation from this since I used it yesterday. I'll have to see how the regrowth is. I have very fine, light facial hair, and I did have to go over spots multiple times but it was effective.
  • Dr. Dennis Gross Sheer Mineral Sun Spray SPF 50 - I ordered this with my 15% coupon from Sephora, haven't received it yet.

    Repurchases (with my Ulta platinum coupon):

  • Clinique City Block Sheer SPF 25 Sunscreen - I love this for everyday, functions as a primer almost, has a tint that will work on lighter skin tones.
  • Clinique All About Eyes Eye Cream - I love this shit.
  • Clinique Take the Day Off Eye Makeup Remover - The best.

    Rave:

  • I ordered the Eucerin Redness Relief Soothing Night Cream and it's amazing. The texture is a gel-cream, has glycerin, squalane, and one of my favorite ingredients, licorice root extract. I've been using this for a few weeks without breakouts, is very hydrating, I love it.
u/hintlime9 · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I have pretty sensitive skin so I haven't found much success with shaving. I've tried all kinds of tips (sharp razor, warm washcloth, good shave cream, deodorant afterwards, etc.) and I still get bad ingrowns or redness afterwards. So now I sometimes wax and typically trim. Waxing is really good at getting all the hair, but it's expensive ($60 for full brazilian) so for me at least it's not a good long term option. I used to use one of those Norelco mini trimmers for ear/nose hair but it was somewhat small so I recently got the Braun Silk Epil Bikini Styler and I'm really happy with it. The trimmer is a better size/angle to get all the hair. I tend to use one of the attachments for the "mound" area and the main trimmer by itself for the bikini line area which gets the hair super short (like a cm or so). If you really want to get rid of 90% of the hair, the trimmer w/ no attachments should do that. One major reason I switched to the trimmer was because even though it does remove most of the hair, I've never had any irritation from it. If you want perfect long-term removal a wax may be best, but I find the trimmer a good solution in the long term.

u/ClapHandshake · 16 pointsr/actuallesbians

I can't stand shaving bare personally, it feels nice for like half an hour and then turns into an itchy stubbly mess. For me using an electric trimmer gets me nice, clean, uniformly trimmed pubes with minimum effort.

My whole lezbro crew swears by this cheap Schick electric trimmer that you can pick up for $10-15 at most drug stores.

They also have it in black / blue / silver next to the dude's razors if you don't want it in "HEY EVERYONE DID YOU KNOW I HAVE TITS" pink.

Basically my routine is:

  • Exfoliate your bits in the shower (I just gently scrub with a washcloth).
  • Let dry completely (a hair dryer on cool can help here), then grab the trimmer.
  • Ignore the standard cartridge razor end.
  • Set the guard on the trimmer end to your preference (might wanna start with the longest setting and see how you like it, then redo on a shorter guard if you need).
  • Turn trimmer on and go to town. Can't really hurt yourself with this thing. Just comb it through the hair repeatedly until it's trimmed. Take extra care to get the hairs right where your thigh meets your groin as these can be easily missed. You'll need to shake / blow hair out of the trimmer every now and then, especially if you're starting with a full bush.
  • Once everything's nice and trimmed, I like to pop in the shower again and just wash one more time to rinse away any loose hairs. I also like to apply some conditioner like you do on your head to soften the hair (I dunno if this actually does anything tbh, but I figure it won't hurt).
  • Dry again, powder the groin area to keep everything nice and dry throughout the day (I like Lush's silky underwear dusting powder but pretty sure it's just nicely scented talc).
  • That's it! Woohoo!

    You might miss a few hairs, if so no big deal. You'll probably catch them next time you trim, and if you don't wanna wait you can use a pair of scissors or tweezers to get the offenders.

    You might be able to get a nicer experience with a more expensive bikini trimmer, but none of us have ever felt the need to upgrade. This thing is cheap as hell, and mine has been ticking for like 3 years (I do take it apart every few months and clean / oil the blades).

    Good luck!

u/somethingsophie · 5 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

TMI Warning:

This costs an arm and a leg but is worth it's weight in gold. If you notice, it's an epilator and not an electric razor, but it has an electric razor head that's ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for what you're listing. Given a good cream, you can really go to town without any fear. Like really go if you know what I'm saying. In my 4 years of using this thing, it has never once cut me using the razor head.

Now, the epilator head is also fabulous, but I would have to be a masochist to use it on my nether regions. However, it is great for the underarms and the legs! Now, the greatest and my most favorite part of all of this is that it can be used both wet and dry while being electronic so usage in the shower with your shower shaving oil or whatever is perfect!

Again, I cannot recommend this thing enough. It is steep, but I haven't bought a single razor in 4 years.

u/icarusgirl · 5 pointsr/Swingers

I don't need/expect full shave or wax, but it's just a drag to go down on someone who's got a lot of pubic hair--and I LOVE going down.

I have pretty sensitive skin also, and had issues with both waxing and wet shaving--given that nicks/rashes increase your risk of acquiring an STD, that is not cool from a casual play perspective.

I have been using a trimmer (a wahl) plus this close shaver for several months and am quite happy with that combo. The close shaver is not quick--it usually takes several passes to get all the hair off--but I have zero skin irritation and my skin stays really soft. The close-shaver only works on hair that's already very short, so using the trimmer first is a must.

Personally, I find that I have greater sensitivity (in a good way) when I'm completely shaved, which is why I do it. I also think it's considerate of anyone who might go down on me. :)

EDIT: Just adding this--I personally don't consider it a positive thing that pubic hair traps moisture--unfortunately, for many people, that also means that it causes odor. It would be nice if everyone were super-conscientious about hygiene, but not everyone with pubic hair is going to go wash right before getting down (I wish they would). My body chemistry is pretty sensitive & I avoid anything that increases moisture (e.g., synthetic panties, pubic hair, etc.) because I've found that helps me avoid yeast infections. But I get & stay wet very easily, so maybe I have the opposite problem your wife has.

u/ta9035768 · 5 pointsr/bigdickproblems

Here are some things that work for me:

  1. Norelco Bodygroomer - This is a great trimmer that can manage trimming and shaving. The shaving head is very mild and does not cause a lot of irritation. The trimmer does a great job as well. This is my go to for shaving the hair right above my dick... Where the skin is the most sensitive.

  2. Gillette Venus razor - this is my wife's razor but it does an AMAZING job. It's super mild and I don't get nicks. I mainly use it on my shaft and testicles to get that super close shave. I get some razor burn if I use this razor for the area above my dick.

  3. Shaveworks Cool Fix- This is a great aftershave for "down there." A little goes a long way. I love it.

  4. Body Powder - I really like this stuff. Helps keep everything smooth and soft if you decide to shave down to the skin. It helps reduce irritation from clothing that your pubic hair helps prevent. This brand of body powder does not have talcum powder in it. There is some questionable evidence that links talcum powder with cervical cancer (only occurs in women). The data is not super convincing but I don't want to put my partners at risk so I use this band. BUT, the body powders WITH talc are so much smoother!!

    Hopefully that helps a little bit. I have found that pushing through a little bit of razor burn was worth it as my skin got more used to the shaving. But, from day to day, things tend to vary.
u/thisisthegoodpart · 2 pointsr/sex

My friend runs her own boutique salon and offers body waxing services to both her female and male clientele.

Certain customers have very sensitive skin on the delicate parts of their body.

For those customers, my friend routinely uses the Seiko S-Yard ES412 Cleancut Personal Shaver.

This Japanese import shaver does the best job in getting as close as possible, but its blades and screen are engineered so well that the shaver can easily be used on the most sensitive parts of either female or male body without any danger of nicks or cuts on the skin.

She uses this shaver in tandem with Sween Body Powder, an ultra-fine grained cornstarch-based body powder, which allows the shaver to literally glide over the skin.

For men who come for the first time with a great deal of body hair, she'll first use a standard set of professional-grade electric hair clippers, like the Oster 76 Classic with its matching 00000 blade which cuts existing hair down to a 0.02 mm size, at which point the Seiko S-Yard can easily trim the remaining hair down to 0.0025 mm or less.

As others have mentioned here, you can get a decent shave with other personal area shavers like the Norelco Bodygroom Pro or the Schick Quattro Trimstyle, but if you want a consistently close yet safe shave of the genital region, the Seiko S-Yard is your best option short of using a razor.

u/shewh0mustnotbenamed · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I'm loving my Panasonic Facial Trimmer. No cuts, ingrown hairs or PIH! It's way gentler than tweezing.

I bought Benton High Content Snail Bee Skin, Lotion and Mask Packs. The Skin and Mask Packs are long-time favs and the Lotion is a new addition. The Skin and Lotion were a steal - $9 for 5 oz on Amazon Prime. Yay for snail-y, niacinamide-filled goodness!

In the beginning of the month, I started Curology (4% Azelaic Acid | 1% Clindamycin | 4% Niacinamide). I'll replace niacinamide with tretinoin soon - my provider is being cautious and tons of my skincare includes niacinamide. I switched from generic tretinoin gel 0.01% to Curology to avoid drying alcohol and try azelaic acid (for acne and PIH). So far so good!

I'm on a quest to find fragrance-free, low pH (goal: pH 5.5) body washes. I want to snag CeraVe Hydrating Body Wash or Aquaphor Gentle Body Wash as soon as I find them in a brick-and-mortar store. Here's a list I've compiled with * next to ones I've tried:

u/five_inch_heels · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Holy cow so many people shaving! For reference, I'm of Mediterranean decent and threading faces is a biweekly event for all the ladies in my family. I have dark hair and, if I let it go, you can clearly see a nice mustache, wild brows, exceeding hairline onto my temples and sideburns, and a overall gray haze on my face. I've been threading my entire face for years.

For those days I don't have time for a grooming day, I use this spring (sorry, I'm on mobile) http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001FXUTUM or I gently and carefully use my epilator http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005BDAFK6.

Honestly, yeah it hurts at the beginning for a while, but god my face never feels as breathable and exfoliated as after a nice threading session. Just be sure to baby your face after for that day by gently wiping with cotton soaked with rose water or a gentle olive oil cleanser and using a very gentle moisturizer. Don't put on any make up for that day or your face will break out. You need to give that day to your skin to breathe after weeks of wearing makeup.

Obviously YMMV. This is just my routine! :)

u/nightowlbookworm · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

Have you tried the Spring Sprong?
Basically it's a spring that you roll across the areas you want to remove the hair from and it plucks the hair. It may sound painful, but as a woman who also suffers from facial hair, I couldn't recommend it more.
If you go to amazon you will see several kinds of spring hair removals. I've bought the original spring sprong (and when I thought I lost it) a cheaper knock off version. Having purchased both, take my advice and go with the original spring sprong, it's a little more flexible and in turn seems to pull out more hair in a pass. It does seem a little uncomfortable at first, but within the same session of hair pulling it will become numb and not be too bothersome.
Also if you do decide to use it, please take my advise and make sure to wash your face before AND after to avoid breakouts.
Really, I've tried waxing, plucking, bleaching, and this was by far my favorite way to address the issue.
This is a link to the one that seems to do the better job http://www.amazon.com/R-E-M-Spring-Facial-Hair-Remover/dp/B001FXUTUM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1414316126&sr=8-1&keywords=spring+sprong

edit: Just incase it seems oddly time consuming, I use it ever 3 or 4 days while I watch tv. I use to use it once every two weeks, but at 32, it's now easier to stay on top of to use it every couple of days while I'm watching tv. :) Any questions, I'd be happy to answer. Good luck.

u/fishscalepanties · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I stared epilating, not for everyone since it can be uncomfortable but I like the result and it’s cheaper than a wax. Also I’ve gone to salons and gotten waxed when I was at my heaviest and honestly they were nothing but professional. It is pricy (I’m from Canada too and there tend not to be the great deals around where I am) but I think it has the best long lasting results outside of laser.

Also, have you considered one of these trimmer things? I have one that I use whenever I feel like keeping it tidy but not bald. I like to go with the hair and cut following the curves down there (no visuals needed) and there’s little chance of harming yourself.

Oh and also! Mirrors are your best friend!

u/hinstarsion · 1 pointr/beauty

Yeah, you kind of gently rub is against your skin. It pinches, which is what essentially does to pull the hairs out. The little metal "teeth" (i dunno what else to call them, they look like teeth lol) open and close really fast and snatch the hairs when they close. It's best if it's it's against your skin so it pulls closest to the root, other wise you might just break the hair off.

If you gently just rub your skin with your hand, like after an itch to calm it, that's how much pressure it would use.

I bought this one off of amazon and it has a video. Check it out and let me know if it still boggles your mind! XD

u/Quiet_Fox_ · 9 pointsr/AskWomen

I bought mine when it was on sale for $89.99 They're pricey, but SO SO worth it. I haven't used any of the other attachments for the one I have but I would happily pay $100 again for it.

I find it's easier to use on totally dry skin (pre shower, pre lotion) and then lube up/scrub up in the shower, but my girlfriend says she likes to use it better in the shower. The one I linked is certified to be used in the shower, but some aren't so be careful!

u/thatg33kgirl · 1 pointr/PCOS

Well, besides going to the doctor and asking their opinion (mine put me on Spiro for awhile which while it was a bit rough on my cycle did help not only with my adult acne did help with my hair growth, and some can recommend a gel but mine was not covered by my insurance and was EXPENSIVE so I passed) I recommend being diligent with shaving. I know, sounds like a hassle, but I have this facial hair trimmer and it works wonders. I know some people who have done laser and electrolosis (sp) which they all have said have grown back, so I've never gone that route myself. I also tweeze the prickly hairs pretty much daily if I can on my chin, but anymore I just shave in the morning and don't deal with it.

Hope that helps! I know its a pain and it seems like the worst thing ever, but its pretty manageable if you keep up on it. I just do all my stuff in the morning before putting my makeup on. The only ones that ever really get me are the wacky "waddle" hairs I don't realize I don't get until they are really long! Just make sure you have a nice mirror and you'll be fine!

u/Moofuri · 5 pointsr/Vindicta

It doesn’t get hairier when you shave it. Look it up.

I’d recommend threading as over a long period of time the hairs start getting more fine. When I was younger, I used to bleach it but honestly I don’t think this is the best solution as the hairs are still visible in the light. They are just blonde.

Veet works too but my skin was too sensitive for the one I tried. Def test it in a small area first lest you show up for dinner with a red upper lip.

I currently use those dermaplaning blades (link below). My parents were anti-shaving and I had to sneak to a dollar general to buy my razors when I was in school. My rec is to just shave it, don’t tell your parents, hide the razors. They should have these at a Walmart/Target. Just be more careful, open the package away from home and dispose of it, hide the razors like they are matryoshka dolls.

I know exactly how you feel! I'm sorry you are going through this <3
I just found this sub, my son and I are both dealing with issues.
I'm obsessed with tweezing my facial hairs, but I try to keep them plucked anyway to stop myself from using my fingernails, especially around friends and family. I've been trying wax and I also bought a finishing touch brow pen, although I use it on chin and neck area mostly. I'm not sure if that's something you've tried or whether it would help but I will link to it. Also, I know it can really negatively affect your self esteem but just remember you are still beautiful and strong and this doesn't define you! Good luck!

Twice-daily shaving? Cut nipples? Ouch! I did say epilating hurts, but as I've been doing it regularly it has been getting easier, and randomly bleeding hair follicles are fairly uncommon (and it's only a little bit of blood). This is the device I'm using, and it has been doing a pretty solid job so far.

Unfortunately I have very few female friends that I can turn to for clothing advice, but one of my male friends has experience with makeup since he did some theatre stuff back in high school so I was able to get some pointers from him for that at least.

I'm sorry you had to deal with that, your boss is to speak most kindly likely a subhuman scumbag fascist chud, and I had the same experiences before I started using the Phillips Norelco Body Groomer:

https://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelco-Bodygroomer-BG2039-42/dp/B01LPT25MA

This shaver gets as close as possible to being a regular shave while not irritating the face by leaving the hair just significantly enough higher that I can very easily shave my face every day now, and save regular shaving only for the weekends plus not spend as much time and money on shaving cream and shit:)

That's the model I use but there's another model that's almost $20 cheaper that looks pretty good too, good luck!

u/FitzCoffee · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I use these and they work great. Give them a try! I also looked up a YouTube video of someone using them to make sure I did it right (cause I’m crazy and overthink everything), which was helpful the first time I used them! Super easy and effective.

u/AlysMae13 · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I use the flawless epilator from Finishing Touch. It is technically a shaver but it works well and it feels smooth. I have been using it for about a year and had no rough patches or anything like that. And I usually only need to do it like every three weeks or so, sometimes less. You can buy the product and the heads on amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Finishing-Touch-Flawless-Painless-Remover/dp/B071KW9GTT/ref=sr_1_7_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1538682326&sr=8-7&keywords=flawless%2Bepilator%2Bfor%2Bwomen&th=1

​

And this one doesn't leave a shadow too. It is much easier than waxing or using products.

​

Make sure when you buy replacement heads that you buy from the Finishing Touch seller on amazon as there are many copycat products that are not as good. They also sell one for your legs.

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil I have been yearning for this for quite awhile. I need this to help contour my pale face. It sucks because the regular chocolate is available in many sizes, but this is only available n the full size.


NYX butter gloss I just got one in anther color and the colors are beautiful, but the texture is super sticky! So I could hold off on this item without complaint.

Waiting for?Epilator I know it's gonna hurt and it costs a lot, so I'm waiting. But I need it, I'm a super hairy gal,and fuck shaving everyday.

The world could do without this but if the world could get rid of why this item exists it would rock.Scar treatment it would be great if everyone could have their dream skin! But alas I am all scarred up and I need this miracle.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071KW9GTT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_1-VhAbQKJRBPP

I was like you, plucking every freaking hair, occasionally using a depilatory cream or waxing, both of which irritated the heck out of my sensitive skin. Then I saw this cheesy as-seen-on-tv device on Amazon with all these crazy amazing reviews. Since it's been out a while, I noticed there are more negative reviews now, but I still think it is a gamechanger. It has a teeny tiny rotating razor of some sort, and it shaves superclose. I know shaving doesn't sound that revolutionary (and the description of the device never used the word shave) but it somehow makes the hair grow back slower and a little softer! It doesn't make any sense, but it's amazing. No pain whatsoever! And, it's the size of a fat mascara tube so you can keep it in your makeup bag for quick touchups. Note that it doesn't work on coarse hair like underarms, but regular shaving is much faster for that anyways. With this thing, you have to move in a circular, overlapping motion to get all the hairs, but only takes a minute or two to do my lip.

Sorry if I sound like a shill, but I just love this thing! It's made my life so much easier.

Edit: I forgot to mention, when I grabbed the Amazon link earlier, it looks like they're releasing a newer model in a few weeks, and the old one is unavailable. I have no idea what they're changing, but obviously mine was just fine. If you're in the US, I've seen them at CVS and Walmart in the shaving section.

u/qirtnye · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I was really hesitant to get anything like this, but a girlfriend convinced me and it really does work great. You can adjust the length you want the hair, even, which was a real plus. Ive had it about 5 months it is still working.

At the risk of sounding like a tv commercial, i very much recommend.

u/gothicdecadence · 2 pointsr/ask_transgender

Yes, there are several different options depending on what you want and your budget. I got the Braun Silk-épil 9 9579 The research I did beforehand said that it's the best on the market and after using it several times I definitely don't doubt that. It's one of the pricier ones ($110-140 on Amazon) but quite worth it. It came with several different attachments and an exfoliator that also works really well. If you're looking for something cheaper there are a few but I'd recommend waiting to get something that's going to last.

u/NotSoNeato · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

I really like deemaplaning. They’re small, gentle razors and I only need to do it every week or two after showering. Bonus: light exfoliating and helps makeup application. I bought a 3 pack on Amazon and each one lasts me 2-3 weeks with good care. But be careful because they are SHARP and I accidentally took off some eyebrow one time.

u/AbruptlyJaded · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

The Seiko CleanCut is awesome for once you get things trimmed down very short. Basically, after you shave down, you can use the Seiko daily or whatever to keep the stubble at bay. Because no blades touch your skin, you don't have to worry about irritation, and the Seiko actually does a closer job than most facial/leg trimmers.

You can also pick it up at beavershaver.com or seikocleancut.com. Both sites are run by the same company, and the Seikos are the same. Just one is more fun to type or talk about than the other.

Me personally, I'm lazy now, and I stick to a Remington Smooth and Silky to trim things short all over, and clean up a bit on the sides.

Edit to add - I used the Seiko for about 2 years straight and loved it, so if smooth is your thing, it's definitely something to consider, and well worth the price. The first time I went totally bare was with a Seiko, it safely gets into all the tight places where I was scared to put a razor!

u/marypies78 · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I use a special eyebrow / grooming razor like this. I have crazy long sideburns & tons of fluffy blond peach fuzz. It It were darker, I swear it would look like I had a full on man beard. But these little razors are great! I just shave every few days after washing my face at night. It is so easy & affordable. As a bonus, they really exfoliate my face well. I have been using them for a few years now, and no, my hair has not grown back thicker or darker :)

u/jigglylump · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

Yo I use the Flawless hair remover by Finishing Touch & it's great! It's an electric hair remover. I've never had any issues with it. I use it on my lip, unibrow area, etc. I use it every day & I love it.

I absolutely love with (this one) [https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DG740RI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_nBZCCbG6GSKT0]. The same thing with less attachments would be fine, depending. The pedicure attachment is nice but not necessary. The trimmer is also not necessary if you have one already.

The second "frame" for the main head is really helpful, I switch back and forth. The bikini one is also nice, taking the full-sized head to your pubes the first is a bit much. However, you can edge around as you trim with the full size, it's just not as easy.

It's pricey but 10,000% worth it, IMO.

u/GirlisNo1 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

Use this! Finishing Touch Hair Remover

I’ve tried waxing, threading, shaving- everything. It all makes me breakout, this is the only thing that works and is gentle enough that it doesn’t have any negative effects on my skin. It looks nice too, and it’s portable so that’s a plus.

It doesn’t work great on thicker hair (upper lip, unibrow and chin for me), I can usually still see that hair below my skin even after using this so I usually tweeze or use an eyebrow razor on those areas. But for cheeks, neck and forehead, the thinner hair that creates “fuzz,” this is perfect!

Let me just add- do. not. shave. I used to do it for years, I even thought it was “good” for my skin because it’s exfoliating. But since I’ve stopped the texture of my skin has been so, so much better. Shaving is way too harsh for facial skin. I have a lot of facial hair so I totally understand that urge, but trust me. Use a combination of tweezing and the hair remover I linked above- even if you have to do it every day it won’t harm your skin at all.

Good luck :)

what worked for me what getting an electric trimmer. [this one]
(http://www.amazon.com/Schick-Quattro-Trimstyle-Bikini-Trimmer/dp/B001TH8Q72) is super awesome, takes no time at all and gets the hair so short that it's not an issue in the bedroom with oral and stuff, haha, plus i just like my pubes like this. no razor bumps, but still hair. perfectly in the middle!

u/wickvit1 · 2 pointsr/beauty

to be clear, this is not a plug: I came across an add for [this] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071KW9GTT/) a few weeks ago and decided what the hell, it's only 20 bucks.

It. Is. Amazing. You barely feel anything, it just vibrates pleasantly and boom, all the hair's gone. I'm always worried about hair growing back rough and this worked so wonderfully that i've ever started using it on peach fuzz on my sideburns and stuff. The fact that it looks like a cute little lipstick container is a huge bonus.

u/BlueBerries2 · 2 pointsr/Menopause

Oh the joys of womanhood NOT! And the lip hairs too! We lose hair where we don’t want & we gain it where we’re not meant too.

I noticed one of those myself right on my neck awhile back it was the big WTF with me too!

I use & sorry I went through this post really quick... but It works even on my lip hair. I brought this to somebody else’s attention on a post quite a while ago on here.

It’s really helps a lot, you use it in a circular motion and I honestly have not had to replace the batteries nothing for as long as I’ve had it possibly two years now. It’s painless!

Only once in a while I’ll have to plunk one of those really coarse stubborn hairs off my chin.

You can look at the reviews but love this thing. Now if I can only get rid of some of the gray that’s coming through my eyebrows . I think too much plucking through the years! Wish somebody told me not too 🙄 And it’s worse on one side!

I have pcos and some great facial hair going on. I use an epillator on my face. I like it better than wax because it doesn't tug at your skin, and its reusable. You don't even need a lot of regrowth before you can use it again unlike wax - you have to wait until it gets long.

Hi there. I have hirsutism from PCOS, so I pretty much have the same problem as you. This year I bought the first swimsuit I actually feel pretty good in. (Yeah, I know, Walmart.) I kind of have a double-whammy with showing my tummy too because I have colitis and it often gets a bit swollen--and I'm very very pale with dark hair. Yay! :(

For my arms, I use a trimmer like this and trim the hair down, then bleach it. The bleach really doesn't last too long in the summer--maybe a week tops if I'm lucky. But it's the closest thing I can get to looking decent, and I can't afford laser hair removal.

You’re best off going to a professional, but if you must do it at home get the brow razors, tweezers, and maybe brow scissors and you should be okay if you follow videos

in your last pic they look especially unflattering and really knocking you down in terms of appearance. Still pretty attractive though.

u/WillowsBoredNow · 45 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Not OP, but I have a little schick trimmer with a replaceable razor on one side. It has a guard that is removable as well. I love it for the exact purpose of just keeping everything trimmed and clean. It is technically one of those "lady trimmers" but I've never had an issue with it.

For my money, this might be the best deal on them in general: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DG740RI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

it has a ton of attachments, and it works really well. The cheap-ass epilators are going to give you exactly what you pay for.

Also, read these instructions on how best to use it: http://www.epilatorcentral.com/epilator-tips-how-to-use-an-epilator/

Also: It IS going to hurt, especially the first few times. And it might cause some irritation - my legs felt sunburned for the first day. It DOES get better. I promise. :)

I've never waxed before or anything but I really hope to get rid of the stubble from body hair and hopefully get smooth legs. Any time I shave it will look decent for like a day then I get terrible razor burns no matter how careful I am. It would be awesome to have a properly smooth body.

This is the one I am planning to get since it is so highly rated.

u/yfuera · 9 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I don't use it anywhere else just because it would take FOREVER to do a larger body area like arms or legs. It might be better for small areas like hair on the tops of your feet or a happy trail, although I've never tried.

If you do want to epilate a larger area, I'd recommend a bigger electric epilator. I have this one: https://www.amazon.com/Emjoi-AP-18-Emagine-Opposed-Epilator/dp/B001GS6OB4

Definitely a larger up-front price (both this model and your average epilator), but it works well and very quickly pays for itself if you wax regularly!

u/genderwar · 9 pointsr/PCOS

This is what I use. There is a small attachment that I put on when using it on my chin. I'm not a huge fan of using it for legs or underarm (it really does hurt) but I LOVE it for my chin. It takes a long time for hair to grow back, and I can run it over my face on a daily basis. It takes way less time than plucking and you don't have to wait as long between as you do with waxing. When I waxed, I felt like my chin hair was very obvious before enough of it was long enough to wax.

u/Darkwolf901 · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

Sadly, I have not actually purchased one yet. However, I have my eye on this one from emjoi, I like the purple one too, but it's costs more and the only difference is color. They also make a black one, if that's what you're into.

Now this is a dry epilator, so it has to be used outside of the water, after soaking would likely be best, to soften the hairs and skin.

There are also wet/dry epilators like the BRAUN Silk-Epil 7 which can be used in the shower/bath, but I've heard they are a bit too rough for more sensitive areas like the bikini line.

For when you finish, there are after-epilation creams that are supposed to slow regrowth and sooth the skin.

Also, epilators are essentially electric tweezers, so if pain is a problem, you should probably not use one.

My current routine is to use a safety/straight-razor and that takes forever anyway, and then the hair grows right back all sharp on the ends.

u/squidboots · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

You may want to look into getting a quality epilator. Here's the one I use. I LOVE IT for my legs. It does smart the first few times, but after that it doesn't hurt and the hair comes in less frequently.

It's pricey, but definitely worth it.

u/DaSaladMan · 37 pointsr/funny

Hairy man butt problems? Buy this.

I bought it on purpose because men's products are still useless for crack/butthole hair. It's for women, but it's fucking amazing. You can get every hair, plus use it on your man sack. The teeth are so small, it doesn't even hurt, my sack is as smooth as can be. The head is at the perfect angle (90 degrees, like a garden rake) for getting the hair underneath. No awkward angles necessary. Plus it cuts so smooth, no prickle/razor burn. And no left over stubble, unlike using a razor, the teeth are so fine.

MY BUTTHOLE IS AMAZING. Yours can be too, brethren.

EDIT: Remember, don't press down, instead, drag it across the undercarriage.

u/nmteddy · 6 pointsr/ABCDesis

The best purchase I've made in 2016 is my epilator. Yes it hurt at first, but it really did make me feel like I really conquered my body hair.

In grown hairs can be a problem but my post epilating routine has saved me from that. First, I use a homemade sugar scrub (white sugar, lemon juice, almond oil, and haldi), then I shave to get anything I might have missed, and last I use a good moisturizing body wash.

It might be time consuming, but it's cheap and effective, and non-messy, convenient.
This is the one I bought:

u/nogotacb · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I've been successful at shaving without bumps for a couple years now thank god. The first thing I do is use a specific bikini trimmer. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SMIIR0W/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&th=1

After that I use a specific after shaving lotion and that's really, really helped. The first one I used for years was discontinued, so when I finished it, I started using Kerah Lane Organic Razor Bump & Ingrown Hair Formula and it's been great. I got it off Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LX3H3B6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1.

I think using both those things has really helped prevent ingrown hairs and irritation.

u/KnottilyMessy · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I've never tried a hair growth serum, but I do have a slight mustache which I've tried several removal methods. I hate waxing and plucking. I used to love the Sally Hansen version of a cream facial hair remover; however, if you have sensitive skin it may not be the best as it can be irritating and even burn if you leave it on too long.

For the past year or so though, I've been using this women's facial hair trimmer. It's pretty cheap and comes with attachments for eyebrow grooming as well. It's completely quick and painless. You do have to use it regularly (every week or two depending on how fast your hair grows) or you can begin to see slight stubble. I usually know when to use it again because my boyfriend makes a mention of my mustache coming back. I've noticed it gets even tiny peach fuzz which might be good for dermaplaning your face if you're into it though I've never tried it myself.

u/sunsh1neee · 23 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Thick, dark, coarse hair around your chin and neck might be indicative of hormonal imbalance - have you spoken to a doctor? Birth control could help.

Threading could help, and I've also seen these coil things that are supposedly effective: http://www.amazon.com/Bellabe-AM-118-Facial-Hair-Remover/dp/B001RPL902/ref=sr_1_10?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1450894978&sr=1-10&keywords=hair+remover

You could also just bleach the hairs with something like jolene.

u/Bad_guise · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Lurker here. I bought a Bellabe facial hair remover years ago (I'm pretty sure that's the brand I purchased, if not it looks identical). It basically works like threading. I use it all the time for my chin and upper lip. It's pretty painful at first (like threading), but it works and I can still use my prescription retinol. Plus it only costs like $15 on Amazon. It takes a little practice, but it's worth it IMO. Here's a link.

u/Nervette · 2 pointsr/funny

From a lady: they make combo trimmer/razers. Something like this. Then grab a washcloth, shave cream of choice, and (trust me on this) some gel style deodorant.

First, use the trimmer side to trim everything down short with the shortest guard setting. It doesn't have to be perfect, you're just clearing some bush so you can see the roots, so to speak. Second, hop on a warm shower, lather up, and delicately shave. As you finish a section, come by and gently scrub it with your washcloth. This will help reveal missed hairs, and I've found it reduces my chance of razor burn. When you are done with your shower, any place prone to ingrowns or chaffing gets the gel deodorant. Repeat with the washcloth and deodorant every shower, and reduce bumps and ingrowns. The key is to gently stretch the skin, not super taught, just enough to smooth things out. Don't apply a lot of pressure, and let the sharpness of the blade do the work. I find this is all too much work, and only so shave the bikini line, but trim the rest like step 1.

u/qqq1wwweeerrrtttyyy · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

This same thing used to happen to me! I have super sensitive skin and I had to stop waxing/threading because of it.

I use the facial trimmer for my upper lip and have no irritation from it and its virtually free after I bought the trimmer. I have this one from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0009DT39C/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_zDoBCbVTW01R8.

For my eyebrows, I tried waxing and threading and would get little pimples all over the eyebrow area for 2 weeks after. I switched to strictly tweezers and that stopped the issue.

Good luck! Hope this helps !

u/ssweetpea · 5 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

there are these little contraptions that are like tiny springs that pull hair out from your face as you roll it across your face! they're re-usable / washable, and i find that although it does take longer than waxing / shaving / depillatory creams, it's not irritating on my face like creams are, not as painful as waxing (it does hurt and takes a while to get used to but it's not terrible) and not as stubbly as shaving!

i use this one, and it's working really well! you do have to sit and do it, but you don't really need to pay attention to it, just look once in a while to see if you're missing patches. i watch like, two episodes of bob's burgers and sit and just idly do it every few weeks! :')

youtube videos help a lot and so does trial and error when you're first getting used to how to do it!

And you're inevitably going to have some unwanted facial hair. I have one of these and I can't even express how effective and convenient it is for my mustache.

I use these a few times a week and they last a good while before needing a new one. You can laser or electrolysis them but this method is affordable and easy. Just draw a template of what you want your eyebrow shape to be and scrape away what you don't want. Keeping them trimmed is easy with this after that. These also work great for scraping dead skin off your face every so often.

I have super sensitive skin and can't wax or use depilatory creams, and I use one of those little electric trimmers (like this one but it's an off brand bought very cheap) every so often.

I think you would be amazed at how many women deal with facial hair. Take a good look around at the women you see during an average day. Normally, you're not looking at them for facial hair, but I bet if you focus on it, you'll see it and realize that most of them just don't care.

u/Kaziezz · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I've never used a razor razor, but more of an electronic one. It looks like this one but I bought mine awhile ago so I'm unsure if it's the same

it's good at getting the fine hairs without actually rubbing on my face!

u/VanillaApplesaws · 2 pointsr/PCOS

Before I even was on meds, I had tried everything from nair, to waxing, to sugar waxing, to tweezing off my hairs. I got so tired of making my skin bleed from having to use tweezers on it everyday, that I bought a epilator and that was my dream come true. Hurts like a mother, but it does the job. And it doesn't cause me to bleed at all.
Now I take metformin 2000mg, ovasitol, spironolactone 25mg. I'm still in the stages of figuring things out so I hope my meds help with the hirsutism and many other PCOS symptoms.

Link to epilator for anyone who wants to try it out.

My hirsutism is bad enough that I found this to be my solution. So an epilator might be a bit much if you don't have to remove as much hair. I have to use it everyday, as well as shave other parts that are too painful to use the epilator on.

Good luck ♡

This electric razor has worked awesome to avoid irritation/itching.

I use it in the shower then rub one some non scented lotion after. Smooth and itch free.

u/black_rose_ · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

I bought mine about 6 years ago, they don't make the particular model anymore. It has a cord and looks pretty ancient by current standards. I think it cost around $50 at the time.

Whenever I buy something on amazon, I just sort by rating and buy something that has 4-5 stars and sells well.

Edit: like this one is probably fine, looks similar specs to mine: http://www.amazon.com/Emjoi-Soft-Caress-Epilator-Hypoallergenic/dp/B001EAYZEW/ref=sr_1_9?s=hpc&rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1421699660&sr=1-9&pebp=1421699707445&peasin=B001EAYZEW

u/pearlyvashette · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I've used a back scrub brush with soap, a loofah with soap, fancy mango sugar scrub, and used coffee grounds. The first few days after I did it my shins had sideways ingrowns that were annoying, but after getting more regular with my exfoliating they are mostly gone.

It's all personal preference, I think. My favorite method so far is a quick soap scrub with the brush and some post shower super creamy lotion I got from Bath and Body Works on mega clearance for 3 bucks.

This is the epilator I got--it works but someday I'll probably try a different one to see if I can speed up the process. The first time I did it it took more than an hour for just my lower legs. You can use it plugged in, which is nice.

It really was painful but absolutely worth it. I don't have the itchies anymore, and I also don't have chewbacca legs either!

u/AnitaGoodHeart · 4 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Not OP but dark-haired woman here to say my springit has been life changing for me because wax grabbed my sensitive skin, bleach just gives me a lighter moustache, and plucking was too time consuming. The spring doesn't grab skin, only hair, and I can do it while watching TV instead of focusing on my flaws in a mirror, it's so easy! There are tutorials and review galore on youtube. Check it out! Hope that helps!

u/chemkara · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I had a braun epilator in the early 2000 and it sucked! and they were expensive at the time. So in 2010, I bought Emjoy Emagine Epilator and it was a huge difference how better is was. Faster, didn’t hurt much and it is still going strong to this date.
I don’t use it much on my legs since I had laser hair removal, but I still get some hair growing due to health issues and It is still working perfectly. I even used it on my face and it worked there too.
The only thing that is not as good as before, is the cordless function. It is a rechargeable device but now it doesn’t last on a charge as it did before. I just keep it plugged in.

u/WasJosie · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I think little battery operated trimmers are perfect for this. You can find them at just about any drugstore (often in the "As Seen on TV" section). I put a link to one on Amazon so you can see what I mean. For me, it seems to work best to go downward on the cheeks, and upward on the upper lip. These are cheap, so it would be worth a try to see if this works well for her. I pluck the few coarse hairs that show up on my chin sometimes, otherwise I use this gadget. Very cheap, doesn't hurt at all, and very quick to use with no mess.

u/obscurityknocks · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

It depends on what your needs happen to be.

I've tried pretty much every type and brand, due to my notoriously thick, dark hair. I prefer corded units because they are more powerful. I've found that after a year or so, the rechargeable units tend to lose power, and they start to hesitate when they grab on to a firmly rooted hair shaft. This causes pain. The best thing is to have a quick, efficient extraction.

Wet/dry models are rechargeable, so if you have thin to normal hair shafts, these are great because they are so versatile. I use this on my fine arm hair about once every three months or so. I have settled on the Panasonic ESED90P which always works great.

For my legs, I rely on a 10 year old Epilady. They don't make that model any longer, but when I replace it, I'll get another Epilady.

u/canadianchica · 2 pointsr/beauty

I got a Remington one (link), I liked that this had more tweezers (42 vs some that had in the 20's or 30's), and it also had good reviews. Mine did not come with the face attachment, but I would be too scared to use this on my face.

My dad is Armenian too and I have this same problem! I've tried everything, shaving, waxing, plucking, the spring thing mentioned below, even two separate rounds (each 1 year) of laser hair removal. The thing that works best is indeed my epilator! I have this one and it doesn't hurt on my jawline or neck at all, just around my lips. I would say try yours before going and buying anything else. I use it at least every other night, but usually every night because I don't want anyone to see even the smallest amount of hair. But yeah it's been life changing.!!

u/JeezFine · 3 pointsr/ask_transgender

I'm going to second what the other commenter said and suggest you pick up an epilator. it hurts like hell, particularly the first time you use it, but it leaves you so smooth for such a long time, its totally worth.

Here's the one I got: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DG740RI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1

A bit spendy but it works really well and has a bunch of cool attachments, and with epilators, you really get what you pay for. The cheap ones aren't worth the plastic they're made of.

u/FlyingNeonPoop · 1 pointr/AskWomen

Yes! Ladies, I highly, highly recommend using a spring facial hair remover if you don't already. The amount of time I save using this thing was well worth the $20 I paid for it. There are also much cheaper options, but I haven't tried them out, so I can't vouch for their effectiveness.

This is the epilator I have: http://www.amazon.com/Emjoi-AP-18-Emagine-Opposed-Epilator/dp/B001GS6OB4/

The two sides spin in opposite directions, so the direction I'm pulling it in doesn't matter as much. Sometimes I go up, sometimes down. Mine didn't come with a sensitive area cap and it's huuuge haha - so if I hold it in the correct direction of the hair growth I can't get it into the bikini line area. The only trick I've run into is that the hair in the top center of my mons grows evrry which way, so I turn the epiliator in a circle to get
everything.

u/Pepperpie88 · 2 pointsr/beauty

I have a lot of peach fuzz on my face too. This product removes hair very easily and doesn't hurt very badly. It's cheap and works well. Just roll the spring over your face and it removes the hairs, even the little downy ones.

I use an Emjoi AP-10R for normal use, AP-9L for detail work (stubborn chest hairs, behind the knee since I started HRT...loose skin in the big epilator fucking HURTS)...they've worked just fine for me for two years now.

Also, I'd recommend an exfoliating body wash to help prevent ingrown hairs.

You don't need any particular skill to learn it. Just make sure you roll it the right way and hair comes right off. Since it's a spring, some hairs are hard to get out so just go back and use a tweezer.

So first thing: you definitely shouldn't feel gross about having a lady 'stash OR asking about how to deal with it. A LOT of the lovely ladies here deal with facial hair in varying degrees.

u/minax128 · 2 pointsr/PCOS

IF your wife can withstand the pain/discomfort, I'd highly recommend investing in an epilator, e.g. Remington's Wet/Dry Face and Body epilator. It'll hurt the first time, nothing atrocious but rather quite uncomfortable, especially in certain areas (e.g. back of legs). After a while, it's just mildly uncomfortable and a lot of people, including me, have found that the hair grows back thinner and is less noticeable. The facial epilator is especially useful for areas like sideburns, neck/chin, but the hair has to be of a certain length for it to work (> 5mm or so).

u/ms-lorem-ipsum · 14 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

give one of these a try., they are so cheap and the idea is to catch, rotate, and pull the hair from its root.

I had good result with it since im have dark thin hair on my face, i still have to plug a few thicker ones but this spring once a week it has help A LOT. In my experience the first time it will take longer but maintenance is faster. Disinfect hands and spring before and after each use.

EDIT: i dont remember from which vendor i got mine, but you get the idea.

u/treason_and_plot · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I stay away from razors in general for my nether regions, and have had good luck with the Schick Quattro Trimstyle (https://www.amazon.com/Schick-Quattro-Trimstyle-Bikini-Trimmer/dp/B001TH8Q72/ref=sr_1_2_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1499892235&sr=8-2&keywords=schick+quattro+trimstyle). I only use the trimmer, and love it--it has a protective cover that you can either leave on, or remove to get a closer trim. Occasionally I will splurge and get a wax, but that's rare. I've never had any skin issues using the trimmer.

*Edited to add that I have had the same trimmer for over 5 years, and it's still going strong--all it needs is a battery change every few months, depending on how often I use it, and a quick rinse after using it.

u/Shut_Reddit_Down · 1 pointr/MtF

Personally I find coarseness is more important than length for consistent epilating. Just experiment a bit and find out for yourself what you can epilate and what you can't to get the idea. Also the quality of the epilator is very important, it's not worth it to cheap out. $100 USD is the minimum you want to pay imo. I recommend this one. If you're really pinching pennies go for the epil 7, but otherwise the 9 is totally worth the money.

u/HerzBrennt · 2 pointsr/AskMenOver30

My epilator. I decided I was done with waxing after I dropped the entire jar of wax on my bathroom floor and spent an hour trying to get it all off.

It hurts like a bitch the first few times you use it, but after you get used to it, it's amazing.

I prefer wax at home for the area outside the bikini line. However, the ingrown hairs are still horrible.

Not shaving is the best answer. If I have to be at a textile beach, I don’t stare at anyone’s crotch, and I am sure no one stars at mine.
It’s neat to see how pubic hair goes through the same grow and shed functions as your head hair. If you need, you can get a beard trimmer for the lady garden.

If you get them threaded again, they'll grow out without the ends blunt again.

u/notahotdesk · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I'm not gonna lie - yes, the epilator hurts.

I, personally, have got used to it and I sort of weirdly enjoy the sensation now, but yeah... it's pulling out hairs really quickly, so that's what it feels like. I physically exfoliate the areas I epilate to keep ingrowns at bay (I either use a loofa / use up my old St Ives Apricot Scrub) because otherwise, yes, I do find the odd ingrown (I generally spot them before they do anything nasty, and then just nudge them out with a tweezer tip). I know some people use ice-packs to numb themselves before epilating, but I don't bother.

For "down there" I just trim (I use the schick razor doodad that has a battery-operated little shaver on the back for a bit of topiary). I'm pretty au-natural, otherwise (I epilate or shave hairs that stray outside the area I'd consider "bikini safe").

Shave it with a Mangroomer. After shaving it may get a little itchy once in a while but it really isn't a big deal and it becomes less of a problem after you've done it a few times. I started doing this a year or so ago, quit for a month, then started back up again. It works pretty well.

u/A5H13Y · 1 pointr/sex

I can't give great advice on shaving since I was never really able to master it myself. I followed all the advice you'll get, but I have rather sensitive skin and it never really worked out right.

One thing that I can suggest is the Schick bikini trimmer. When I would shave, I would trim with this first, and it helped immensely since I spent so much less time shaving and irritating my skin. Also, I found that trimming as close as it would go was perfectly fine for me - it gives you a really close trim when you take the plastic guard off.

Then I discovered waxing. If you have the money to spend (depending on where you live, probably $45-75 per month), it is really the best option. It gets so incredibly smooth. Add some Bikini Zone or something similar to prevent bumps (which will be a lot less than what you'll get after shaving). Also, note that the first time will probably hurt a lot, but don't let this deter you. Each time you go back hurts drastically less. If you can get through the first wax, your fine for the rest.

Yup! Same effect as waxing on hair but you can do it at home with less mess

This is the exact one I have

It's pricey but so so worth it. I got it on Black Friday for like $70 off of a high of around $130 last year.

Downside is the epilator is rechargeable but the brush takes batteries. Major oversight but to their benefit the batteries last a long time

Here you go:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0787GLBMV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

This is the cheapest and best reviewed one for the money. You can spend as much as $75 if you want, but why?

Anyway this is what you're looking for: an "eyebrow razor".

This is generally a favorite.

I have the Braun Silk-epil 9 and I love it- it has a wide, pivoting head, two speeds, and a shaver/trimmer just in case you want to be lazy and shave one day.

u/PropitiousPanda · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Yeah, I have this epilator. I rarely get ingrowns from it on my legs or underarms. I get far fewer from epilating than from shaving. I don't have much hair on my legs or my underarms though, so that might be part of it. I don't use it on my nether region though because it really irritates the follicles. But, so does saving. So, I just trim down there (luckily my partners are happy with that).

u/johnyutah · 5 pointsr/WTF

I use this. Good for keeping the backyard lawn trimmed.

Old Asian method of hair removal that's come back into vogue in the last few years. I personally have had good results with this, for home use.

u/jbg830 · 1 pointr/sex

I use the Schick quatrro with the electric bikini razor. And use baby powder and gentle lotion for sensitive skin.

u/possumosaur · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

I just bought an epillator, tested it on a patch of my leg - seems to work ok! I will look forward to less money spent on shaving/waxing this summer. I don't aggressively remove crotch hair though, just around the edges...

u/mahayana · 7 pointsr/AskWomen

I use a Schick Quattro Bikini Trimmer. It gets crazy close, I love it.

u/MCHammerCurls · 3 pointsr/Weakpots

But they last forever! And they seriously reduce the amount you spend on razors and shaving cream. Amazon tells me I bought this one two years ago and it still works like new. Before that I had one of the cheaper ones for at least five years.

u/caninedesign · 9 pointsr/CompulsiveSkinPicking

Highly recommend these for chin hair and eyebrows

u/Ashlee863 · 1 pointr/crossdressing

waxed, plucked, and also used something called a spring sprong. Makeup did help pull off the look though

u/politikitty · 5 pointsr/AskWomen

This is the one I use: https://www.amazon.com/Bellabe-Remover-Removes-sideburns-tweezing/dp/B001RPL902

It's awesome. My skin is too sensitive for shaving and epilating, and I've tried to thread but I can't master it. I do use a shitload of chemical exfoliants to prevent ingrown hairs though.

u/cakiepie · 2 pointsr/piercing

I wouldn't get a ring right away, the extra movement disrupts the healing of delicate new tissue on the inside of the piercing more than a labret stud.

I would also suggest that you tailor your beard style so that any hair around the piercing itself is shaved, because beard hair is prone to harboring bacteria. Once the piercing is healed you could go back to your normal beard style.

I'd recommend these for trimming the hair around the piercing until it's healed:

u/SlowestRobot · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Yup, have shaved my facial hair before as well! In fact, I did so earlier today to record a presentation for school, hah.

I have PCOS and grow hair in some frustrating places, but this product has been a lifesaver. I don't have any issue with bumps which I generally get from shaving (or using conditioner to shave, ugh, even with oil as the bottom layer). And you can get a rather close shave considering that it is a trimmer - I have a tiny bit of friction at the end of where my mustache would be and nada under my chin where I get my coarsest hairs. It also has another razor head specifically for eyebrows!

The pain really isn't bad at all. It works great, and here is the one I bought.

This one is stainless steel. To sanitize, I swish it around in isopropyl alcohol after use. There are cheaper options, but some of them are made of unspecified metals so I chose this one. The others are linked to that Amazon page, so you can take a look depending on your budget!

u/DeadliestTulip · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

Probably pretty painful I'd imagine but I exfoliate a bit so hopefully not to bad. I ended up getting this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TI5ZMZQ?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_3&smid=API0ESPAS70OH

Which I plan to use on my legs and stuff anyway.

u/HolyMolyMyRavioli · 5 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I used to use depilatories, but now I use this It’s like an epilator but it doesn’t hurt at all! It literally feels like nothing and leaves my skin smooth

u/katiekat78 · 3 pointsr/asktransgender

I highly recommend the Braun silk 9 epilator. Just after you use it make sure you exfoliate your legs. Ingrown hairs are things people didn't tell me about and it's really annoying. Also never ever use skin cream to remove hair. Just don't do it.

u/PunkyTay · 5 pointsr/BeautyGuruChatter

I think makes your makeup look smoother. I actually had to stop waxing all together back in January because I was having such bad reactions. I've been using a dermaplanning tool instead to remove hair and its been great! I feel like there is no difference between waxing and shaving as far as makeup application goes - same results!

Got this pack off Amazon:

u/thewidowaustero · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I pluck mine, but they don't grow like yours do. I do use a little electric trimmer for any other peach fuzz on my face. You could try something like that for the unibrow part although I wouldn't recommend it for actually shaping your brows.

u/OmniOmnibus · 3 pointsr/Advice

i used to wax my legs at home. Now I have this little epilater machine. Kind of like this one

It takes a little practice. You have to pull your skin fairly tight or it will hurt a bit. It was well worth it for me. It does thin your leg hair out after a while, but it takes a year or so.

u/wwaxwork · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Perfect for top lips. As others have said hair will not grow back black & thick unless it was like that before you shaved. It may feel thicker but that's because you've cut it back across the widest part of the hair follicle. It will soften & go pointy again as it grows out.

u/samantha_sometimes · 1 pointr/MtF

This is the one I have. It's mean AF but it gets the job done. If you're at all hairy, don't waste your money on a cordless one.
