Seriously. Pubic hair comes in so many types, like head hair, that it needs a separate sub or forum or something.

“Ooh, I just condition, shave and rub deodorant on the area.” Cool, cool, glad that works for you. I’ve tried so many things, each for months on end, and nothing works. Shaving, trimming, plucking each hair out with tweezers, home waxing (practiced elsewhere first), rolling hair remover, and at this point I could pull it out with my hands if I wanted.

Doing these results in ingrown hair...not doing something about it also results in ingrown hair. Tried conditioner, oil, hair masque, deodorant, etc; my hair grows sharp and can grow back in towards my skin, yet also grows straight and randomly bends in zig-zag patterns, making sure I know it’ll never be cute. I have so many scars. It scars sometimes just from being removed. It’s Type 666. It’s Satan manifested as pubic hair.

Again, pubic hair is as diverse as head hair, but there’s more misconceptions that’ll likely end in dangerous ingrowns or yeast infections or whatever. Pubic hair needs its own “beauty care” guidebook.

Sorry /rant

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. Epilating is a lot more convenient, quicker, and cost efficient. It does absolutely wonders to remove my unwanted body hair. It hurts like a bitch the first few times you use it, but after you get used to it, it's amazing.

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.

u/MayAnneEgg · 42 pointsr/30PlusSkinCare

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!)



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/HugeDouche · 36 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I HIGHLY recommend the spring type hair removers to anyone with chin hair

I'm horrible at tweezing and always end up accidentally picking at my skin and leaving scars, and those totally prevent that

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:

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

u/SpeshulSneauxflake · 20 pointsr/PaleMUA

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!
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/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/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/limitedboob · 12 pointsr/popping

I use this one.

u/IvetteAramis · 10 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I use a [similar] ( upper lip hair remover every few days to quickly remove a wider area of hairs and then once a week take time with a magnified mirror and good lighting to tweeze away any survivors. Tweezing at first does hurt but you get used to it the more you do it and now I don't even feel any pain. I think I tried waxing once and it was very unpleasant and I still had to tweeze afterwards. Your makeup looks very pretty otherwise.

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/sprocky · 9 pointsr/tretinoin

I use a spring like this. Works great.

u/MyWifesBusty · 9 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I have no idea if it would work with your particular hair, but I "de-fuzz" my wife's face using this: REM Spring Facial Hair Remover.

It hurts like a bitch but it works really well. It takes some trial and error to get good at using it but now that I've got it down I can remove all the fuzz in about 5 minutes or so.

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:

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/cobrahh · 9 pointsr/WTF

I know right...I think something like this may be in order.

u/Andralynn · 9 pointsr/BabyBumps

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. I like a double headed rechargable like this one

u/frannyshi · 9 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

LOL highfive for moustaches! I stopped waxing mine (too painful), but I use this thing that's sort of like a spring to remove hair.

Looks as stupid as the picture, but it works! Best part is that I just move it around my face as I'm reading/watching stuff, and much less painful than waxing.

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/caninedesign · 9 pointsr/CompulsiveSkinPicking

Highly recommend these for chin hair and eyebrows

Get an electric trimmer! I use this for my peach fuzz.

u/nth-user · 7 pointsr/london

Next time try a back shaver. I have one from Amazon, it takes two passes to get all the hair but it's great.

u/softwhitepaws · 7 pointsr/tifu

Made in USA Bellabe #1 Facial Hair Remover. Quick & easy. Removes hairs on the upper lip, chin, cheeks and sideburns. No waxing, no tweezing, no shaving, no laser.

This might work for you! I’d searched years and years for hair removal stuff for my upper lips. I have tried waxing professionally and at home, shaving, weird electronic razor thing. The list goes on. I tell everyone about this now! It is amazing and finally don’t have to deal with tiny patches here and there! It takes some getting used to since it can be painful at the beginning but it is so worth it! Also it lasts forever so you don’t have to keep spending money on useless products :)

u/mahayana · 7 pointsr/AskWomen

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

u/markthesharkisdead · 7 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I use the shick quattro electric trim blade.


Edit: I used to use scissors but sometimes I'd cut myself. Ouch! Plus, this is much faster/easier clean-up.

u/Twinpockets · 7 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Okay, I got you, fam: the Finishing Touch Flawless is what you need! (Non-AB, sorry)

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.

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. You're also going to want some good skin care! Pick a moisturizer and use it twice a day, at least. I recommend oil-free, and it doesn't have to be fancy. I use Neutrogena or its store-brand dupe.

Okay, I'll let you talk now.

u/yankitout · 6 pointsr/malegrooming

Epilate. Its nowhere near as bad as you're imagining.

If you have $100 get the Emjoi AP-18R
If you have $50, try the Remington EP6025C

It just works. The only part that was painful was the penis shaft area. You're on your own as far as how much of that you want to yoink with a machine. The rest was nothing.

But get this: I was incautious and I fed my scrotum deep into the mechanism and guess what happened? Nothing. There are no blades and none of it is sharp. I just pulled it out like it weren't no thang.

I do not seem to be having any ingrown problems weeks later and much less hair seems to be growing in then was there previously.

u/superpony123 · 6 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I use a bikini trimmer

That's the one I use although I dont think I paid quite that much for it! There are other brands too. I had a Remington one before this one and it lasted at least a year and was very inexpensive so I didn't feel bad when it finally died.

I too cannot shave with a razor, it gets all irritated and bumpy and itchy and awful. I used to get bikini waxes but I would still get ingrown hairs and it was way too expensive (I'm a college student, so there are other things Id rather spend money on)

I really like the trimmer because it gets you darn near hairless, very smooth, and I never get any bumps.

u/cioncaragodeo · 6 pointsr/ladyshavers

I feel you! I used to go through the process of soaking, exfoliating, lotioning, shaving, and more lotion all the time. For me it made the shave smoother, but the regrowth is what gets me. So. Much. Pain.

This is what I use it's a year old and still going strong for me. I've used a few over the years and like this one best due to the light and the fact I can use it in the bathtub. I'll warn you, it's a bitch, but no worse than waxing is. I used to wax when I was younger and hated the to-do of getting waxed.

Tips for using it:
It will hurt at first. Go slow, start by your ankles and rotate it in circles as you're moving.
Take advil a half hour beforehand
Use it in the tub and under water. It helps. Bring wine (or weed!).

If I haven't removed hair in 3/4 weeks, it takes me an hour per leg. If I'm good with using it every 2 weeks, I can keep hair at a minimum and only have short regrowth that's unnoticeable. It's also softer for me, and doesn't hurt growing back in.

u/UrsaMinorBetan · 6 pointsr/CompulsiveSkinPicking

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!

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/politikitty · 5 pointsr/AskWomen

This is the one I use:

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.

I recommend the Schick Quattro bikini trimmer. You can adjust the blades to trim at several different lengths, it's easy to use (just press a button to turn on!), and works quite well.

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!

u/HessesAdventure · 5 pointsr/traaaaaaannnnnnnnnns

I bought this one off of amazon and I'm super happy with it:

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/SissyCuckBrandi · 5 pointsr/girlschool

In boy mode I am hairy. Really hairy. It doesn't help that I have pale skin and dark hair.

No matter how close I shave there is always a shadow over my skin from the follicles below.

I have tried Nair and it works OK on the arms but it has a tendency to cause chemical burns on my skin. And it lasts only a few days before the roots start to show under my skin (often before the skin has even healed).

Waxing is ok but it doesn't last long on me as the the hair tends to break more than getting pulled out by the roots. As others have said it is expensive for boys (they charge a LOT more for those extra few inches) and a touch embarrassing but that is all in your head; I have never had to deal with anyone unprofessional. And I will be honest, the embarrassment and femininity of it fun. But....

If you want to do this for more than an afternoon or weekend there is one affordable option I have gone to and swear by. Epilator! It will take time; days or weeks or months depending on your regiment. And it will hurt. And you might bleed. And did I mention it will hurt? But after the first two or three times it becomes much easier because your are tearing up your deep, masculine hair roots and the hair gives up the fight with less pain. My chest is smooth and clear with no dark hair roots showing through (which happens a few hours after shaving or a couple of days after waxing). I haven't been brave enough to try on my face yet but I will. And it lasts a very long time. Weeks on me.

This is the one I use:épil-Epilator-Electric-Removal/dp/B00TI5ZMZQ/ref=sr_1_4_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1521217418&sr=8-4&keywords=epilator+for+women

And the 'white' head works wonders for really pulling the hair. The purple head you see in the picture doesn't do such a good job but it hurts less.

Oh, and again, it will hurt. You may cuss or tear up or even bleed if you don't pull your skin tight enough (pro tip, have someone help you) but it works and works well!

u/cat_can_too · 5 pointsr/muacjdiscussion

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/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/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/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/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.

u/Makeup_Fakeup · 4 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

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.
Second thing: Being one of those ladies, I use a similar razor to this one, and it works well. Not a long lasting solution, but it's not at all irritating.

u/spunky-omelette · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I have PCOS, pale pale skin and dark brown hair. For a long time I was using Sally Hansen's bleach cream and hated it - it tingled, itched, and smelled bad. :( Plus with your skin tone, the hairs might look strange bleached because they turn blonde. (Skincare confession: I was also using it on my FULL ARMS and it was so horrible please never do this to yourself. And I may or may not have tried lemon juice in my desperation too.)

I use a Panasonic trimmer every Saturday just to clean up the fuzz, and it works pretty well. I just make sure to keep the blade clean and rinse my face afterwards.

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:

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 !

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/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!

I use the Braun Silk-epil 9 9-579. It’s fairly expensive but I went with the bonus edition that includes an electric razor attachment as well as other attachments so that I could have that option if I didn’t want to epilate. Here is the link for the one I bought so you can see.

u/heartjuice · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

For which part? To trim my face I use a facial trimmer. Specifically the Panasonic Pivoting Head Facial Trimmer. It's like $20 at Ulta, I thought I got it for cheaper but I could be wrong. It's also on Amazon. But anything like it would probably work.

u/peaches671 · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I have a ridiculous amount of facial hair; side burns, upper lip, chin, etc. I have an epilator that I use on my legs and arms but when I tried it on my face, I got bumps. Even when I get my eyebrows waxed I get bumps which turn into pimples and last a week or two. I think I'm going to try a hair removal cream since it looks like threading or even using the epicare would just irritate my skin.

u/slothfeathers · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I second the suggestions about chemical exfoliants - maybe switch to a salicylic acid wash as you're already treating with benzoyl peroxide (which can also be contributing to the irritation) or try a BHA toner, Paula's Choice makes some good ones. I just wanted to ask, have you ever tried a spring facial hair remover? I use it and have no problems with irritation or ingrowns. Also, did you use the CeraVe lotion before you started breaking out? If you introduced it after starting to epilate you might want to try switching to something else, a lot of people break out from CeraVe moisturizers.

u/FreeCookies6 · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

u/possumosaur · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

u/seashells15 · 3 pointsr/beautyreview

TMI ahead! I love using my epilator for my underarms. It hurts a lot, but leaves me smooth for a long time. I have coarse hair and sensitive skin, which is a dreadful combination, because it means shaving leaves me both irritated and stubbly. I have yet to use it on my legs but I'd like to try. Here's a link to my epilator, which is fast and works just fine by me:

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/HouseDestroyer · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

You don't have to completely shave if you're uncomfortable with hair! Get an electric razor like this and just trim. (:

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/chuckiestealady · 3 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Me three. I get regrowth so fine I have to search to find/feel it. Hurts a tiny bit at first but take a paracetamol and use an ice pack until you're used to it. The [Braun silk epil 5] ( comes with a massage fitting to soothe, and an ice pack mitt to numb the top layer of flesh on the next patch of leg as you go. I don't regret mine at all. I prefer it to waxing as you don't need 2cms of itchy ugly regrowth before you can redo it and don't have sticky skin afterwards. Also I can do it lazily on my own sofa or bed without having to haul my sorry backside to a salon. Gosh I sound old. Anyway, I highly recommend an epilator.

u/vedette123 · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

This isn't on your list but I really like mine:

Apparently it's made just like the most expensive Braun epilators but with a cord which I don't mind.

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:

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/judgejudygarland · 3 pointsr/popping

An electric trimmer. That’s the one I use. Nothing fancy and you can get it at Target or a drugstore. If you take the guard off completely you can trim pretty close to the skin.

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/Furryious · 3 pointsr/feminineboys

I would start by shaving all your body hair. Buy an Epilator from Amazon I reccomend the Amazon Epilator ok, then I would keep epilating the whole body. The belly is painful but trust me it's Soo worth the effort. You can epilate anywhere on the body. IPL removal is helpful but you must keep doing it and might as well Epilate too. The Face I would reccomend professional Laser hair removal. It's $$$$ though. The Epilator will do a fine job on most the body. Anyways get one you can plug into the wall cause you will want to do it often for a while.

u/swaggsmeaN97 · 3 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I do!! And I get embarrassed by it too!!! I use Finishing Touch Flawless Women's Painless Hair Remover and it’s amazing!!! It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and it removes hair amazingly! I know using normal razors are bad for your skin especially your face as the skin is more delicate there. And this product is definitely worth it!!’ (The link to the product —>

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/jigglylump · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

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/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/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/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!

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/elbowglitter · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

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.

Sorry, but I have to disagree. I'm like a gorilla and I've gotten my back waxed quite a few times. First off, it's very painful. No matter where I go, I end up covered in blood by the time it's over. Second, it leaves horrible red bumps all over my back. Third, it's pricey and I don't have an extra $60 to spend each month on this. I bought one of these and it seems to work pretty well. I might get the hair lasered off when I have enough money.

edit: I know I said that I don't have $60 a month and then I said I want to get it lasered. I don't mind spending the money if it is permanent.

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.

Edit: like this one is probably fine, looks similar specs to mine:

u/ariana00 · 2 pointsr/TransSpace

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/incredib1yclose · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

My sister and I both use a spring facial hair remover. We each have our own of course...

It hurts a lot less than threading since it doesn't tug on the hairs forever before finally pulling it out. It irritates our skin a lot less compared to waxing, because it only grabs the hair. Plus, you don't have to wait for it to grow to a certain length before removing.

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.

u/idlehen · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I use a REM Spring which someone told me is gentler than threading. So far I like it. It does hurt a bit when you first use it, but it's not that bad. I've never had much irritation from it, but mind you, my skin is not too sensitive. Might be worth looking into. There are cheaper knock off versions if it seems a bit too pricey:

u/restlessgrad · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Shaving = ingrown hairs and irritation for most poeple.

The more blades, the more likely you are to get ingrowns -- you don't just take off the hair, you also take off layers of skin. The skin then heals over the hair follicle, and you get an ingrown.

I might suggest going once a week to get your face threaded. It's a very low contact, low irritation method.

These are also good:

u/acutehypoburritoism · 2 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

This thing is AWESOME for the wee face hairs and doesn’t involve setup/cleanup:

I have gifted this to all my female relatives of a certain age (tactfully, of course, and only after they have complained about waxing)

You’re not alone!

u/kovixen · 2 pointsr/AskWomen
u/delapse · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

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

But for long term, if you don't want to get an electric epilator or lasered or shave it more often, I'd go with something like this. Depending on how thin your hairs are, it might work really well and it's relatively inexpensive.

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) or I gently and carefully use my epilator

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/tritonite · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I got this emoji epilator when it was on sale, and really like it. Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with the ones you linked, but I'd recommend getting an epilator with lots of tweezer heads if you think you might use it on areas larger than just your armpits -- arms, legs, etc.

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/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/Kaselehlie · 2 pointsr/beauty

I've been using this one for two years and it isn't too painful. Really the only areas that hurt me are my inner forearms and underarms when I can work up enough nerve to do them. Lol

u/cjhard · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

I have this one, but I've only used it a couple times because it really fucking hurts. I can only really gather the courage to try it a few times every year. Overall it works for its purpose, but I think it would be more manageable if I toss some sugar and lemon juice into a pot and try out that sugar waxing first and maintain with the epilator.

u/omgthrowaway12345 · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

I get a lot of hairs there too, so much that I actually just shave, usually. It's not the best, but it's the quickest. The creams are all worthless for me, I gave up on them, and there's always the chance that they will react badly with your skin and then you'll have a rash/breakout instead of hair which...isn't so much better...

So, maybe try one of these? ( It's like a coiled wire, that you run across your skin and the hairs get caught in, and pulled out. It sounds kind of weird, but works, kind of like a more efficient way of plucking. I didn't get ingrowns with it. Maybe try gently exfoliating your skin before and after, if you haven't?

u/Kelck222 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I don't know if it's actual considered threading, but this is what I use.

I tend to breakout if I let the hair grow to much. I have lots of peach fuzz.

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.

I have this one. I like it because it is

  • cheap

  • waterproof

  • uses AA batteries (no fucking charger to lose)

  • available with free Prime shipping!
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.

Here is the link:

u/HerzBrennt · 2 pointsr/AskMenOver30

Not gonna lie, my wife's $10 schick with a trimmer on it. Works pretty well, it's lightweight, compact, and the trimmer portion is adjustable. I also have sets of Wahl and Andis clippers. Depends on what I'm scaping as I'm a midget sized wookie.

u/Sg1324 · 2 pointsr/TwoXSex

I use this. I put it at the shortest setting, and i get probably a 1/4 inch cut. You could definitely get a 1/2 inch cut.

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.

I am LOVING it for my underarms, no shaving and that perfect smooth, no stubble look.

u/hamboneTdestroyer · 2 pointsr/WTF

Thanks again!!! I also notice there is a newer version out there, so I might just go for that...

Considering the amount I was planning on paying for laser hair removal (and hearing about how it could grow back afterwards), I figure to get a variety of dedicated products:

Razorba War Hammer Back Hair Shaver (
Mangroomer Sku 211-6 Professional Do-it-yourself Electric Back Hair Shaver (
Remington BHT600 Body and Back Groomer (

Man...I didn't even know ANY dedicated stuff was out there...The one time I "handled things myself", I basically taped a razor to a broom handle...

u/letheix · 2 pointsr/sex

They actually make electric trimmers specifically for that area. I have a Phillips Bikini Perfect, and it's great.

u/wildradish · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I use this Phillips Bikini Trimmer because I prefer trimming with the shower going. The build quality is nice, and it's also wall charged!

Initially, I bought this which failed miserably. My hair was too straight/flat for the trimmer to properly cut, and the cutting mechanism... pulls(?) the hair a bit. That was not cool. Unfortunately it wasn't exactly a product I felt comfortable returning, haha.

u/ed077 · 2 pointsr/AskTrollX

I've been using the [MySpring Hair Remover] ( for over 3 years and it's super simple and quick. 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.

u/skiesandsunsets · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

This spring hair removal tool

It's cheap and the spring is durable. It might hurt like alot when you first use it but you'll get used to it. The results are great! It's like threading but cheaper.

u/snippybitch · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

This is the one I have. It's like waxing but very slowly, and yes it hurts. However, the hair is much softer now and not as obvious if I have some hair on my legs. The knees are the worst part, I guess my skin is very sensitive there!

u/emmster · 2 pointsr/SubredditDrama

I use this one. currently. But I started with a $20 one I picked up at the drug store.

It takes me about ten minutes to do legs, bikini line, and underarms. Usually I just sit on a towel on the bed and do it while I watch tv. (Towel to catch the little hairs, of course.) It hurts the first time. But only while it's actually pulling the hair out. Taking an ibuprofen first helps. If you keep doing it every 2 weeks or so, it really doesn't hurt after that, because you won't have as many hairs growing at the same time. Plucking my eyebrows is way worse than epilating everything else. Plus, no razor rash and no ingrown hairs, which is nice.

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/Asapara · 2 pointsr/feminineboys

I have this epilator but it seems outdated because panasonic has this new one for sale.

Honestly though, for legs it hasn't been the best. Maybe I just wasn't doing it right but instead of pulling the hair on my legs from the root, more often half of it would be broken off at the skin while the other half was from the root. It's great with underarms, however. Downstairs area.. I tried once but it was far too painful. As for your legs, though. Have you considered waxing? I wouldn't fully recommend a epilator for legs.

u/Maelyn-M · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

For my money, this might be the best deal on them in general:

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:

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. :)

u/racheeeanne · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Legs and underarms: Epilator. I have this one and I like it.

Every once in a while I will trim my upper lip if it's grown in really dark with something like this

u/Saorigameover · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I was looking at that one!
Is this one the same?

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/FrodosFroYo · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

You could try a personal trimmer like this . If you use it without the guard, you get a close cut and no ingrown hairs.

Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle Moisturizing Razor for Women with Bikini Trimmer

u/MsNewKicks · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

It won't grow back "even more". Shaving doesn't cause more hair to grow.

Pick up something like this and trim it down as much as you can and then use the razor to shape/shave however you want. Exfoliating before helps and remember light but steady strokes when shaving. The more you shave over a spot, the more likely it will get irritated. And moisturize afterwards!

u/PM_PICS_OF_GOOD_BOIS · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

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

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.

Braun Silk-épil 9 9-579 Women's Epilator, Electric Hair Removal, Wet & Dry, with Electric Razor

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 ♡

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/DeadliestTulip · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

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!

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.


  • 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/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/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/GlassRockets · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Remington also makes one that you can pick up at Target/Walmart but it's not as good and doesn't pivot so I recommend you pick up the Panasonic one from Amazon.

u/dateadvicethrowawy · 1 pointr/sex

Get a very small hair trimmer. You'll probably struggle with a regular electric shaver, like the kind you use on your head or beards, because it will be too big to properly navigate the your butt crack. You'll be able to get all up in there with the small one...just be careful around your butthole obviously (I don't think you can really cut yourself, but I mean don't put it up there obviously). You may want to bend over with your ass facing the mirror and then kind of half turn around to see what you're doing or look in between your legs.

The one I use for shaving my ladyparts is actually made for men...I think maybe it's actually a nose hair trimmer? But it's awesome and gives me a surprisingly close shave for an electric razor. A lot of them will also have multiple settings and a little detachable head for trimming that you can set at different lengths. The only bad thing about a tiny trimmer is that if you have a TON of thick hair it could get too much caught up in it and stop working temporarily, so you'll have to go kind of slow. Just run it lightly over the surface of your hair at first to trim it down, and then from there you can keep thinning it until it reaches the desired length. You may not want to go for a full shave just yet if you're not used to it. Also trimming and shaving can be a little itchy for a day or two afterwards, but you should get used to it quickly.

u/palpablescalpel · 1 pointr/AskWomen

Here is the one that I used to use. Just a word of caution since I stopped using it and went back to shaving:

  • Your hair sort of needs to grow out a bit before you can epilate and I live in more hot/humid place, so I tend to like wearing shorts, skirts, and dresses.
  • It does hurt a slight bit--for me, esp. by my ankles.
  • It gave me ingrown hairs.

    On the upside, when your hair grows back, it is finer than shaving.

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.

Not the poster you replied to, but I've been using this one for years!

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

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/Lunakill · 1 pointr/beauty

Apologies if you've tried that too, I have too much brain fog to be able to tell. If you haven't and do pick one up, you can use it a tiny bit each day, and avoid aggravating your skin somewhat.

u/lufty · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

I bought the R.E.M. Spring about 4 months ago, tried it once, and broke out around my upper lip. I'll try it out again soon. It took me almost an hour of playing with it to get the hang of it, and it hurt.

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/squidboots · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I use the Emjoi Emagine and I have to admit I don't really do my bikini line at all. I'll have it waxed, if at all (I'm not super hairy and I just don't get into a swimsuit that often...) so I can't really speak to any experience with using it on the bikini line. It does however work great for legs and pits. It's an awesome epilator, if not a little on the expensive side (but totally worth it IMO.) That said it is scary as hell when you first use it because it has so many tweezers and makes a lot of racket lol.

What were you using to exfoliate? I use the aforementioned sugar scrub in those areas and have never had a problem. When I do get my bikini area waxed, I'll also apply deoderant or a silicone makeup primer to the area to reduce friction and keep it from chafing.

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/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.

u/throwaway14093 · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

This is the epilator I have:

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

u/IIIRuin · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Epilating is like waxing, but instead of a wax strip removing hair it's removed by a machine with a rotating drum of tweezer heads. I use this one.

u/allen476 · 1 pointr/asktransgender

I use an Emjoi AP-18.

It does take getting used to using. As far as the chest goes, I won't lie that it does hurt quite a bit the first few times.

u/Slummish · 1 pointr/twinks

Take two Vicodins; one orally, one anally. Wait about 40 minutes. Use one of these:

It's what I've been doing for years. It beats the rest of these suggestions; especially when it comes to the hair growing back. Make sure you buy one that plugs into the wall. The battery and rechargeable models lack the power for male body hair.

u/justkayoh · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I have really thick black hair as well and you can definitely see the roots. I usually will epilate my armpits once or twice a week and it take like two minutes with this!

This one also isn't on your list but I've used this one since early 2015 and it is still going strong!

Emjoi AP-18 Emagine Dual Opposed 72 Tweezer Head Epilator

This one has to be plugged in order to be used. I thought that would be a hassle since I had a cordless one before but honestly, having to have it plugged in isnt a hindrance at all. You're always at optimum speed which means it's less painful. The cord is long enough for me to maneuver it however I want to, and I epilate dry.

I would get annoyed with my cordless rechargeable (one I had before purchasing the one recommended) because I always forgot to recharge mine. Because of that, the motors wouldn't be as strong which would break my hair follicles rather than pulling them out and it was more painful when the motors were slow. It ended up aggravating my skin more.

u/electricpuddle · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Hey! I recently tried this facial hair remover and really like it. It hurts a little bit (it's a coil you roll back and forth) but it works so well!

u/amstarcasanova · 1 pointr/beauty

I haven't tried it personally but I have heard good things about these

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/zay1414 · 1 pointr/sex

i use this with shaving cream. I trim it first then shave and it comes out great!

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 ( 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/keepitanonymous · 1 pointr/todayilearned

Trim? This is pretty legit.

u/KatieMoonbeam · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

what worked for me what getting an electric trimmer. [this one]
( 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/VickHasNoImagination · 1 pointr/AskWomen

I got this for trimming about two years ago and never looked back. I usually take off the extender thingy and do a very close trim. It's perfect for all the tiny places down there.

Oh and it's much better than shaving because I never get those ingrown hairs anymore.

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.

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/Pheebalicious · 1 pointr/AskTrollX

I've used something like this but a different brand and I really liked it :)

u/travellinben · 1 pointr/travel

I backpack travel full time, so I use one these types that are sold everywhere now : I find it works suprisingly well, and may for you depending on your guard needs, but I normally use the shortest settings. It's really light, uses a AAA battery and breaks down small for travel.

u/sonalis1092 · 1 pointr/TrollXChromosomes

I use this. It's pretty much the best thing ever. I found it at Walmart for like 10 bucks.

u/RubberDucky_Meow · 1 pointr/AskWomen

this will help, the trimmer can trim back what's there to make it easier to shave. Go slow if you are worried and take your time.

u/absinthevisions · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

Are you US? I bought this one :
about a month ago and used on my legs once and hated it (it just takes too much time for me). I cleaned it and it's been sitting on a shelf ever since. I would be willing to sell it for $30 (shipped) in Amazon credit or would be willing to trade for size Medium /US size 8 gothic/vintage/rockabilly/anything unique dresses, shirts, or skirts. I would consider jewelry as well.

You can check my history and see I've traded successfully on r/closetswap and on r/snackexchange .

u/Whatdoesntkillme · 1 pointr/gaybros

You can use the mangroomer

or the norelco bodygroom plus*

*plus is important because it comes with the back extension. I've used both and they both work well. The norelco gets a much closer cut tho.

u/TheTrueRang · 1 pointr/malegrooming

As someone who has experimented with all kinds of ways of getting rid of back hair, I wouldn't recommend Nair. As others have said, Nair has a really awful chemical smell that has a tendency to linger even after you shower and wash it away, and you still have the same problem you do with waxing/shaving, which is that it's impossible to reach certain areas on your back on your own.

After years of trying everything under the sun, I highly recommend buying a Mangroomer. It's a little pricey, around $50-60 bucks, but it is super easy to use and is quality made, not flimsy at all. It's basically a back scratcher with an electric razor on the end. A lot of the reviews on Amazon say that the electric razor isn't powerful enough but I think those people just don't know how to shave. I have a ludicrously hairy back and I manage to get it all off on a regular basis.

TL DR: Buy a Mangroomer

I'm not sure if it is "waterproof" but the box says wet or dry use. I've used it on damp hairs without problems.

u/kireiname · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

I've had the same problem. I liked waxing, but it's painful, expensive, and doesn't last. Shaving with a regular razor is terrible! I use this guy. If used properly, it gets you baby-smooth. Doesn't last super long, but it also doesn't irritate at all.

u/YourWaterloo · 1 pointr/AskWomen

This one! It's ok, nothing super special, and you could probably find a similar product for cheaper if you weren't as lazy as I am.

u/kinsenka · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

For the spring tweezers, here - this is just one of the brands, there are plenty more on Amazon itself.
And the epilator - here. Just a warning, both methods hurt because they remove hair from the root.

u/Ohohohmyguts · 1 pointr/AskWomen

I recommend this to remove your upper lip hair. I have a similar one. It might be confusing to use it at first but it's painless and it works!

u/Janiichan · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hahahaha I do make it sound really's actually a hair removing tool

u/Sophie_Unlimited · 1 pointr/MtF

I do not shave, I use an epilator !

An earlier model of this one "Braun Silk-pil 5 Power 5280 Epilator
I started using the epilator about 10 years ago. The first time was hard on the morale, the pain was almost too much !

Each time I was using it the pain was diminishing. After a few months, the only thing I was feeling, was the pulling of the hair, no pain.

Now, 10 years later, I only need to use it twice a month, it takes about 30 minutes.

Before you start saying that you don't like pain... You can choose some pain those first times with the epilator, or shave every other day... Or hide the legs ! :-)


edit: In summer, when it is a really hot day, just imagine yourself, bare legs, short or mini skirt.... It's so much more comfortable than leggings, and way more feminine !

u/restlessariel · 1 pointr/MtF

Here’s the one I bought, but there are cheaper ones available for as low as 30 dollars. Amazon Link

u/eruditelush · 1 pointr/beauty

I use the real deal--don't know the exact model, but it's an electric Braun one, similar to this

u/CompletelyAverage · 1 pointr/AskTrollX

My two cents: it does hurt but I get an adrenaline high afterwards which makes me feel like superwoman. So there's that.

It really just depends on the technician. I would go to a bigger salon/spa which gets a lot of business and see a person whose only job is waxing.

Another option, which I've recently gotten into, is epilating. It pulls out the hair so you get long lasting results like waxing, but you can do it at home at your own pace and the reusable epilator costs less than a brazilian does. You might not be able to go full brazilian with an epilator though. Here's the epilator I own.

u/Zanorfgor · 1 pointr/feminineboys

I use the Braun Silk-épil 5 5-280, Been using it for a year and a half, still happy with it.

u/janedoesquestion · 1 pointr/sexover30

That makes so much sense, and I wish it wasn't true. Cost of one and a half waxing appointments = this. I'm pretty good with pain; not much compares to squeezing out some babies. Waxing is painful already—does an epilator hurt more because it's slower?

u/aaqucnaona · 1 pointr/traaaaaaannnnnnnnnns
u/VicugnaPacos · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I just did a bunch of research on this like two days ago! For my purposes, it came down pretty close between this Panasonic and this Braun. I picked the Braun and am eagerly awaiting its arrival.

u/cute_polarbear · 1 pointr/AskMen

I use my wife's bikini trimmer (whatever you call it), the electric side with the guards. She doesn't use that side of the trimmer, device is waterproof, trim guard provides perfect length for pubic hair region, and trim guard makes me feel safe to use on nads + butthole area.

u/kristin137 · 1 pointr/AskWomen

Have you tried this

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.

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

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

u/plonk519 · 1 pointr/crossdressing

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.

u/hodogfilter · 1 pointr/TwoXChromosomes

Sorry this is long but I understand your pain. I can shave my legs in the morning and they will be hairy again before it even gets dark out. My armpits are awful because I have a constant shadow even after shaving so I was extremely self conscious about them. Tried laser hair removal on my underarms but if you are going through hormonal changes still it will regrow (which, unfortunately, happened to me).

Something that I found that I love is an epilator. It's a little expensive but it is a one time purchase and this thing works everywhere! Anyway, your hair will come back so much thinner and you will stay smoother longer. Just warning you though, the first time you use it it hurts like a bitch burning in hell. I thought I had a high pain tolerance but this thing gave me a reality check and the sound it makes is really fucking intimidating. I swear it was originally made as a torture device and then they found that it could be sold as a beauty device too. I know that probably didn't encourage you to use it but I just wanted to warn you up front (it's so worth it though and it gets easier after the first time since the hair is thinner).

Anyways, learn to embrace your hairiness! First time ever commenting so I hope this helped!

u/newguy8908 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife
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/sciencefaire · 1 pointr/OkCupid
u/Sixial · 1 pointr/AskWomen

I have one of these.

It works well, but it's rather annoying.

For one, it runs on battery that lasts maybe 50 minutes. I'm the type that's thorough, so this isn't long enough for me. Also, it does not turn on while charging.

Also, the part for the razor has broken on one side so I have to rotate carefully when using the razor.

Edit: Sorry, this is the one I have. Same brand, different model.

I’ve had this for 3 years now, but I don’t shave my head smooth. I use the clipper end with no guard once a week on my head then with the guard to shave my beard.

u/Grimtongues · 1 pointr/malegrooming

For the past several years, I've been using the Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100. Use oil before shaving, and lotion after shaving - ball shaving is basically the same as face shaving.

It would be extremely difficult to hurt yourself with this thing. I have had only one minor cut in the years that I've had it, and that was from shaving too quickly.

Could you link me what you use? I was always told hair growing back in thicker/coarser/darker was a myth but that has happened to me after every time I’ve attempted, even when using one of these as it turned areas with previously blonde peach fuzz to areas with black hairs.

u/onewordeightletters · 1 pointr/AskWomen

I use this and love it! I would always break out after getting my lip waxed so I would put it off as long as possible. I discovered this product about a year ago and LOVE it. I've gotten one for my mother, sister, and grandmother and they all love it as well.


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:


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.

u/SakuraAyanami · 1 pointr/Makeup

I grow thick dark hair below the chin, long thick hair sideburn style and a thin short hair mustache. On the thick hairs I use tweezers and on the rest I use this woman's hair removal tool (aka no blade shaver)

It works like a charm, and from all of the hair removals I've used over the years this one does not irritates the skin, it leaves your face smooth and it's easy to clean up.

You can curl or perm your eyelashes. Tinted lip balm. I also like light brown mascara and maybe a tiny bit of blush. I find it all too be low maintenence and subtle enough for me.
Last thing, It's a single head electric razor that fits in a pocket. It's also the best razor I've had.

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 :)

u/beansofsu22 · 1 pointr/beauty

This looks close to the one I have (in South Africa so I don't know what other countries have) but if you look for an eyebrow trimmer it should help with something like this.

Eyebrow razor

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/r08tran · 1 pointr/asktransgender

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 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.

This is the one I use. Sometimes I just use scissors.
