When it comes to nixing facial hair, I've tried it all: tweezing, waxing, and several etc. I leave my eyebrows to a professional (the Benefit Brow Bar is genius!) but I'm solely responsible for my upper lip area. I used to get it waxed, but I've come to realize that this area is too sensitive for that. There's added pressure to solve this dilemma with the weather warming up summer means less makeup, and I want my face to look flawless when I go makeup-less.
I used to just shave (gasp!) the hair on my upper lip, but no surprise here that caused razor bumps. Looking for a new solution, I stumbled upon Olay's Facial Hair Remover Duo, but I was skeptical. The last time I used a cream like this, I burned my skin. The brand responsible for that shall remain nameless, but let's just say the experience scarred me for life literally. Anyway, the Olay product promised a swift and soft removal, and when I tried it, I was impressed, so much so that I'm thinking about trying it on my eyebrows. The best part is, it keeps you hairless for a blissful four weeks. To use Olay's Facial Hair Remover Duo:
1. Apply the Skin Guarding Balm stick.
2. Massage the balm into skin.
3. Use your finger to spread on a thick layer of the Hair Removal Cream.
4. In six to eight minutes, you'll see hair rise to the surface of the cream. At that point, use a tissue to wipe it off, and rinse the area clean.
