Woman’s facial hair is something that we don;t talk about. We sneek off for a lip wax or discreetly buy hair removal cream.
I am quite fair and facial hair only became a problem a few years ago. Not sure if it was because of age, medication or the fact that I was taking Biotin as the hair on my head was falling out from Methotrexate.
I had this really fine, blond, but thickening – dare I say it – moustache! I started waxing. Ouch! then I tried threading – double ouch. The problem was I waxed it grew back. I am sure nobody was aware of it as much as I was, but it made me really self conscious.
I started to have a close relationship with my tweezers as every time a witchy hair appeared on my chin I freaked out and plucked..
When I got brave enough to talk about this awkward subject I realised that many woman struggle with facial hair.
The final straw came when I realised that I had a fine peach fuzz along my cheek bones. I started doing some research. The celebrities have started shaving. It appears that even Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor did it!. Read all about the trend in the NY Times.
Shaving your face as a woman seems to have loads of advantages including exfoliation, younger looking skin and smoother application of make-up.
Well I could now imagine myself standing in front of the mirror like my Dad with a face full of foam pulling funny faces to stretch out my skin and get a close shave. Shudder there must be a solution.
And then, one night on twitter i ‘met’ Tinkle Razor. Would I dare try it? The delightful Tinkle Razor challenged me and posted me a set of three little razors. I was so excited the night they arrived I only stopped for a minute to take a photo of my peach fuzz cheek.
I have given it a month, so I know that the regrowth for me is very slow, and when it grows back it is soft and downy still.
I am converted. I have smooth skin and am far less self conscious. Pucker up and come close I am confident enough for a kiss.
It is really affordable and costs around a fiver for 3. Take a peek here
Go on try it – I dare you.
