REVIEW: Facial Hair Remover – EPISTICK

DSCF1969

Many women, especially dark haired or with hormonal problems, have serious issues with excessive facial hair, and yet it’s a bit of a taboo. Many try using razors but it only exacerbates the problem as the hair grows back much stronger. Some others use wax or remove them one by one with tweezers. Well, now we have one more option – the Epistick.

Price: from around 1$ on ebay.com

Country of origin: China, of course 😉

Description from ebay:

Original threading facial hairs remover, no pain. Pen size and light weight, take it wherever you go. Removes hair root for long lasting hair-free complexion. Remove the hair by bending the stick into an inverted “U”.
How to use?
Bend the stick into an inverted “U” and place it against the hairs you want to remove.
Hold the handles, twist the stick in opposite directions. The hairs are trapped between the tightly coil spring which grips and removes them in one swift movement.

PROS:

  • Quickly removes unwanted facial hair along with the follicles. Feels just like when using tweezers.
  • Easy to store and carry with you anywhere.
  • Very durable, not likely to break even after many years of continous use.

CONS:

  • Sometimes the skin feels a bit dry and can crack. Some moisturizer might be needed.

In short, I like this device very much. It’s way better than using any razor and the slight pain when removing hair is negligible and easy to get used to after a while, because the skin becomes less sensitive in those areas. There are two Epistick sizes – I have the bigger one, 19cm variant.
