Reminds me of one of the funniest things I've ever read. The amazon reviews for 'Veet for Men Hair Removal Gel Creme 200mL'.

Being a loose cannon who does not play by the rules the first thing I did was ignore the warning and smear this all over my knob and bollocks. The bollocks I knew and loved are gone now. In their place is a maroon coloured bag of agony which sends stabs of pain up my body every time it grazes against my thigh or an article of clothing. I am suffering so that you don't..."

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

TMI: I'm not bald as a baby down there but I've o my done 3 treatments. I used to suffer a LOT of ingrowns and my pubes were always itchy. Always. I don't notice them now and I still have a few ingrowns but nothing like how they were. Also, I don't really think it hurts but I have a crazy pain tolerance so ymmv. It just feels like touching a hot light bulb for a second and it smells like burning hair. Feel free to ask me any questions I'd love to talk about my pubes w u

u/chaimbo · 66 pointsr/funny

This is, for me, the finest Amazon review ever. It's quite British.*Version*=1&*entries*=0

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/ShamrockAPD · 43 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

Read the top review.

If I pasted it right, should be about hair removal veet on a dudes balls

Also- you’re going to laugh a lot. So make sure you’re not drinking anything.

u/__hellonurse__ · 42 pointsr/tifu

It is totally a thing! Just check out these awesome reviews !!

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/Bleedthebeat · 27 pointsr/AmazonTopRated

Personally, I think the top review for Veet for Men was way funnier than any of the ones on this list.

u/nomnommish · 26 pointsr/Unexpected

I first heard "meat and two veg" in this Amazon review of veet hair removal cream for men

> After having been told my danglies looked like an elderly rastafarian I decided to take the plunge and buy some of this as previous shaving attempts had only been mildly succesful and I nearly put my back out trying to reach the more difficult bits. Being a bit of a romantic I thought I would do the deed on the missus's birthday as a bit of a treat.
> I ordered it well in advance and working in the North sea I considerd myself a bit above some of the characters writing the previous reviews and wrote them off as soft office types...oh my fellow sufferers how wrong I was. I waited until the other half was tucked up in bed and after giving some vague hints about a special surprise I went down to the bathroom. Initially all went well and I applied the gel and stood waiting for something to happen.
> I didn't have long to wait. At first there was a gentle warmth which in a matter of seconds was replaced by an intense burning and a feeling I can only describe as like being given a barbed wire wedgie by two people intent on hitting the ceiling with my head. Religion hadn't featured much in my life until that night but I suddenly became willing to convert to any religion to stop the violent burning around the turd tunnel and what seemed like the destruction of the meat and two veg. Struggling to not bite through my bottom lip I tried to wash the gel of in the sink and only succeeded in blocking the plughole with a mat of hair.
> Through the haze of tears I struggled out of the bathroom across the hall into the kitchen by this time walking was not really possible and I crawled the final yard to the fridge in the hope of some form of cold relief. I yanked the freezer drawer out and found a tub of ice cream, tore the lid of and positioned it under me.
> The relief was fantastic but only temporary as it melted fairly quickly and the fiery stabbing soon returned .Due to the shape of the ice cream tub I hadn't managed to give the starfish any treatment and I groped around in the drawer for something else as I was sure my vision was going to fail fairly soon.I grabbed a bag of what I later found out was frozen sprouts and tore it open trying to be quiet as I did so.I took a handful of them and tried in vain to clench some between the cheeks of my arse.
> This was not doing the trick as some of the gel had found it's way up the chutney channel and it felt like the space shuttle was running it's engines behind me. This was probably and hopefully the only time in my life I was going to wish there was a gay snowman in the kitchen which should give you some idea of the depths I was willing to sink to in order to ease the pain.
> The only solution my pain crazed mind could come up with was to gently ease one of the sprouts where no veg had gone before. unfortunately, alerted by the strange grunts coming from the kitchen the other half chose that moment to come and investigate and was greeted by the sight of me, arse in the air, strawberry ice cream dripping from my bell end pushing a sprout up my arse while muttering..." Ooooh that feels good ".
> Understandably this was a shock to her and she let out a scream and as I hadn't heard her come in it caused an involutary spasm of shock in myself which resulted in the sprout being ejected at quite some speed in her direction. I can understand that having a sprout farted against your leg at 11 at night in the kitchen probably wasn't the special surprise she was expecting and having to explain to the kids the next day what the strange hollow in the ice cream was didn't improve my status...So to sum it up Veet removes hair, dignity and self respect...:)

The other two hilarious reviews are for Veet men's hair remover cream and the 72 pack of kleenex written by the mother of teen boys.



u/UghRaven · 25 pointsr/Makeup

I've been using the following razors from Amazon for roughly two years. I replace them every month or so. They work great and my makeup application is much better because I use these.

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/Feather-Light · 22 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Use a Salux cloth with your body wash of choice when you shower! I use the Olay Ultra Moisture Shea Butter Body Wash, three pumps on my Salux cloth, lather up, and scrub all over. I've done that daily for years and years from behind my ears down to in between my toes. Combine that with shaving off body hair and you'll be so soft. I highly recommend an electric razor to shave your body. Gets somewhat close to a traditional razor but it's so convenient to use and it's a one time purchase. No additional cost involved for maintenance or anything!

u/pa_one · 21 pointsr/BlackPeopleTwitter

Guys for the sake of your balls use Nads.

u/K0nichiwa_B1tches · 21 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Here's a $4 replacement.

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/Owl_Shits · 19 pointsr/soccer

This reminds me of the 'Veet' for men hair removal cream comments here

u/carbikebacon · 19 pointsr/funny
u/Ravenman2423 · 19 pointsr/Tinder

Real talk, this shit saved my fucking life. No razors, no shaving machines, no knives. Just rub and wait. It's fucking magic. But if you buy it, make sure to try it on a less sensitive area, like a small bit on your arm, to make sure it doesn't burn you or some shit idk.

u/piyochama · 17 pointsr/tifu

This will change your life. Guaranteed. Just take 10 minutes to read this, PLEASE

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.

Study ohm's law and battery safety. If used improperly, mech mods can become a pipebomb.

That being said, here's a list of stuff you should get.

u/ballookey · 11 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Tinkle eyebrow razors. They're six for $5, use one every two weeks.

I have blonde hair and always felt conflicted about my "peach fuzz" face because on the one hand I thought that's not another thing women should have to worry about shaving, but at the same time even though mine is very light, it bothered me.

Finally saw those razors recommended, and I'm happy with the results. It doesn't remove every bit of hair, but trims it very close, very quickly, and very economically. It doesn't have any negative side effects when growing out. Just about two weeks later I decide to do it again.

Makeup sits much more nicely on my face.

u/monicamarie798 · 10 pointsr/VeganBeauty

Not sure about the wax BUT can I just say... I've tried everything under the sun for my upper lip since I was about 12. Now I just shave it with these little razors. And no it doesn't grow back thicker or any of the other lies you've heard, I promise. So much cheaper and less painful than waxing.

u/beholdkrakatow · 10 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Ive ordered these before. They are much wider.

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/sobrique · 9 pointsr/tifu

Like this: (Might not be entirely work safe. Depends how uptight they are about descriptions of putting hair remover on genitals)

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/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

u/LSatyreD · 8 pointsr/RBA

Hey! Great questions! And good on you for asking them!

Part I


So first off, building your own coils is ABSOLUTELY the way to go, it is much cheaper, more customizable, a better vape, and just plain fun. You are going to need a few things though.

  • Wire. Start with a mix of different gauge Kanthal.

  • Wire cutters.

  • Ceramic tweezers. These are for adjusting your coils once they are installed.

  • A coiling jig. You can use anything from a nail to a precision screwdriver to a syringe, however I very strongly recommend this set.

  • Cotton. I've tried every brand of cotton out there, they are all the same. Just go to your local CVS/Walgreens/Whole Foods/Walmart/etc and pick up a big bag of cotton balls, they will last you a life time for about $5. Seriously, a life time.

  • [Optional] Ohm meter. This is only optional because you are using a regulated device, it is required for mech mods. The Kanger will not fire if your coil is bad or too low of a resistance (about 0.4 ohms in my experience).

    Now that you have everything you can go to town! Remember, all of this is just my personal opinion and experience, do what works for you.


    Planning: The Kanger works best at around 1.19 ohms at 50 watts but can go as low 0.4 ohms. To get an idea of how factors like different wire gauges or multiple coils will affect your resistance try simulating it on this page.


    Wire Work: There are plenty of videos and tutorials out there for different coils but my advice would be to start simple. Once you can build a coil that has good tight wraps and learn how to remove the hot spots from it and are generally just comfortable coiling then move on to more fancy builds. The advantage of (almost all) advanced coils is more surface area for better wicking and juice retention, there are also the offbeat ones like staged (dual) heating. I am a big fan of simple twisted wire coils, they are incredibly easy and work much better than simple single wire coils.


    Prepping The Wire: When you pull the wire off the spool be careful, if you don't hold tension the whole thing is prone to come unwrapped rather quickly. Work in longer lengths than you will actually need, screw ups are frequent and wire is cheap. Cut off a length of wire and you'll notice that it isn't exactly straight, or really at all, but this has an easy fix.

    To straighten your wire: At one of the wire make a small 90 degree bend, insert this end into your drill with the wire centered and the bend sticking out the side, the bend allows the pincers to grab onto the wire. Grab the other end with a pair of pliers and apply light pressure (too much will cause the wire to snap). Start up your drill noting the direction it is spinning. It doesn't take more than a second or two, if the wire snaps it has spun more than enough (it tends to snap at either end but can be in the middle in which case you have to start over).

    Annealing the wire: Thin wire like we use tends to be 'springy' making your coils unwind when you release tension, the thinner the wire the worse it gets. But again I have an easy fix. Holding the wire straight with tension, either with a vice grip or the drill or pliers or whatever you have, use a BIC lighter or a small flame to apply heat along the length of the wire. You want it to just start to heat up, not glow orange, if you see smoke coming off the wire move to another area because that one is done. Some people recommend dunking the wire in water when done but I just let it air cool.

    [Optional] Making twisted wire: Take however many strands you wish to twist up and line up all of the ends with the 90 degree bend, cut the other end so that they are all equal lengths. Before inserting into your drill I find it helps to make a few 'starter twists' to keep the wires even and from coming undone. Remember how I said to make note of the direction your drill is spinning? Well it is time to spin in the opposite direction. Clamp your wire down in your pliers (not the drill) with the bent end sticking out a few millimeters. Grabbing the wires by the bends twist them by hand a couple times in the same direction as your drill is now spinning (opposite of the direction you used to straighten the wire). Now you can insert them into your drill. Start the drill slowly and don't go past a medium-high speed overall or the wire is more likely to snap, if it does it will 'unstraighten' on the end near the drill and become a mess to work with. If you are using a long length of wire (I would say over 8" but YMMV) it is best to release the wire halfway through and insert the opposite end into the drill (you do not need to reverse the direction of spin on the drill, it will work as is) because the end nearest the drill will twist the fastest this will provide a more even twist across the entire wire. It is totally up to you how much you want to twist the wire, if it snaps though it means you either went too fast on the drill or it has reached its limit of twisting (you can usually reinsert it and get a few more seconds of twisting out of it though).


    Building a coil with the linked jig: I'm only going to cover using the jig I recommended up above because if I didn't I would be here for all eternity, ask 10 people how to make a coil and you will get 12 answers. That jig is super easy to use, cheap, and makes coils better than you ever will be able to by hand.

    Start by selecting the inner diameter of your coil, the jig provides nails ranging from 1mm to 3mm. Unscrew the cap from the base unit, insert your chosen nail, and screw the cap back on over it. Insert your wire from the top through the small hole on the base and grip down on the end of the wire with your thumb, you only need to pull the wire down to where the cap screws on to get plenty long leads. Taking the other end of the wire (the long portion sticking out the top) give it a small start around the nail, a quarter or half turn is all it needs. Put the piece with the corresponding size hole (the piece you the nail is originally stored in / marked with the sizes) over the top of the nail, push it down making sure the wire is between the screw and the nail. Twist the corresponding piece to wrap the wire around the nail, this requires almost no pressure if you do apply pressure you will end up with a pancake and not a coil.

    Once you have however many wraps you want push down on the base piece and the corresponding piece to put pressure/sandwich the coil. Hold this for at least 30 seconds to a minute, it will help tighten the coils and keep them from unwinding. Some people pull on the wire leads with pliers to tighten them up but I do not like doing this personally because it changes the number of wraps as well as causes the leads to be made from part of the coil (as in not straight leads).


    Mounting your coil: Insert your coil leads onto your post and tighten them down. Be careful about over tightening or having your leads at strange angles as this can cause the coil to bend such that on one side the wraps do not touch and on the other overlap, it can also cause other weird deformities that ruin all the work up to this point. Roughly position your coils, using the nail from the coiling rig will help to keep the coil from getting bent. Make sure the coils are not touching anything as this will cause them to short. Clip your leads.

    With your mod on a low to medium power setting begin to slowly pulse the device until the coils begin to glow. You want them to glow from the inside out, evenly, and at the same time. This will pretty much never happen right away. You are looking for spots that heat up unevenly. Using your ceramic tweezers squeeze and manipulate the coils, this is hard to describe but you'll understand it right away I'm sure. You can also use the coil jig nail to turn the coil and tighten the wraps (i.e. if the coil was originally inserted parallel to the deck insert the nail and twist it upwards to a 45 degree angle or even vertical, the amount varies from coil to coil but you can tell very easily by looking at it as you twist).

Maybe try an electronic razor. I just bought one for my no-no area and I've never been so pleased. Single best thing ive ever done as far as grooming. I don't have to exfoliate that area any more. I used to get a little razor rash and irritation. Now its perfect, smooth, and without nicks. Very close shave too. This is the one I bought.

I bought this razor last year and it is going strong.

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/rogerdaltry · 7 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I love this look!! I definitely think men shouldn't be afraid to experiment in makeup, even if it's just natural makeup as opposed to "full glam". Other people have already said this but I recommend brushing through your brows with a spoolie and maybe a clear brow gel (my favorite is the brow/mascara duo from elf, it's like $2 and the clear mascara is actually really nice as well). You can also try cleaning up some of the lighter, angled hairs (hopefully you know what I'm talking about) on the tops of your brows with a small eyebrow razor. They're more forgiving than tweezers (hair grows back faster) and way less painful. I use these ones and they're awesome. Your arches already really nice so I don't think you need to clean up under them. :) hope this helps!

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.

u/Cardiscappa · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Look at at home laser. I have had both in the spa and bought a Silk'n Flash & Go. The Flash & Go is less powerful and you won't see results as quickly, but I've had mine for a year and have only spent around $300 for the device and a second cartridge. $300 would have been two visits at the spa.

I am white with dark hair which is the "best" candidate for laser hair removal. Ensure that you shave as it's painful with longer hair and is not as effective. Start with the lowest setting and work your way up.

This is the one I have, I don't think they make that particular design. If you purchase, make sure you can still purchase cartridges as the one it comes with won't finish the job. (You'll get a couple of months from it.)

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/DarcyIsPhoenix · 6 pointsr/PCOS

I shave and absolutely love it! I just pick up these from Amazon and throw one in my purse, my toiletry bag, my makeup bag, and then one at work because my hair has a mind of its own.

I've found that it helps my skin stay healthy and happy because the razor also helps by removing a small number of dead skin cells.

My suggestion for using the small razors is after you take a shower, apply a creamy face cleanser or lotion to your chin/neck/cheeks and then take the blade down the areas with grain of the hair. This will prevent you from getting razor burn and ingrown hairs.

u/pamsabear · 6 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

Consider referring her to the Benefit Brow Bar at Ulta. They do a nice job for less than $20.

I don't recommend plucking too often because it leads to sparse brows because it damages the hair follicles. Instead I shave excess hair from my brow area using these:

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!

Seriously though, have you tried Veet? It's a hair removal cream - no waxing pain, and lasts longer than shaving. There's even a men's version if you have issues with pink things.

A word of warning though: test it on your skin before using it! If you're going to react, best you find out before covering your whole body. Also, I recommend you learn to exfoliate of you're going to remove hair (by any means), or the regrowth could be hell.

I use the pink Panasonic wet/dry shaver and I always keep it fully charged. The less power it has the more it pulls and kinda hurts. So every couple of nights I plug it in. And I've also noticed that if I skip a day it stings a little more, so I try to avoid lazy Sundays for that reason. I think the shorter the hair, the better. All that said I've never cut myself even in the delicate lady bit areas.

u/Smashpiecer · 6 pointsr/beauty

I find your advice with being comfortable with your genital region very important. Even shaving in the anal region well I sit in good lighting and put a towel under me get out the shaving cream and use a razor. It's the only way to get everything if you are worried about it. You notice you miss a lot generally in the shower to be hairless. Also around the anus go with the the grain of the skin not the opposite direction.

If anyone here doesn't want to wax...
I use an electric razor, this one. Cheap and effective.

Panasonic Electric Shaver for...

I use it for the pubic patch area (courser hair) and I never get ingrown hairs and razor shave the rest of the crotch area and the bikini line. Another good thing if you use this razor on the patch area just buy a dry brush like this

Dry Skin Body Brush - Improves...

You can make the tiny hairs under the skin come out before shaving and you are smooth. You don't even have to shower first to get a smooth shave. I usually wait 2 days maybe 3 to do it again.
Also I never wear underwear unless I'm on my period. This helps a lot with ingrorowns. I never have any.

Would love to try waxing though. Just hate letting it grow out that much.

u/older_bolder · 6 pointsr/ask_transgender

You'll get faster. You'll need to figure some stuff out for laser, if you go down that route. I eventually found that pre-surgery prep videos are a good way to learn to shave sensitive areas.

I also found that I don't need to be silky smooth every day. I still shave my face with a Harry's razor and cream (sometimes twice a day), and if I need to shave my legs (or anything else) I use a Harry's razor with a thin layer EOS cream shave. It's more like a shaving lotion or butter, and comes in a pump.

I always shave with the grain, and then can follow against if I need to and the area isn't too sensitive.

But the real game changer for me has been this electric razor. I did considerable review shopping before I found it, and it's glorious. You can replace the blades and foils, it works wet or dry, has a trimmer, and good power. Per the reviews, only use it if you are super wet (I use the same cream shave in this case) or super dry. When I shave dry, I can get most of my body in about 20 minutes. I pull down with the grain of the hair, slightly angling the razor so the clipper part (not extended) catches long hair before it reaches the foil. I then pull back in the opposite direction. If I need to, I can make multiple passes without irritation. I'll usually just hit one half of a limb at a time, making quick down/up strokes, and then touch up anything I miss. No, it's not as smooth as a razor shave, but it's pretty freaking good, and I can save the hard work for those days when I expect to be skin to skin with someone.

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.

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/cthulhubert · 5 pointsr/EDC

The core material EDC, to me would be knife, light and cellphone. But cool keychain gidgets are really nice too.

So I'd say if you have a knife, a good flashlight would be next, then a backup knife and light (one is none, two is one). I like a multi-tool or SAK for my backup knife, and a keychain light for my backup torch.

(In case you're curious, after that I start considering footwear, gloves, hats and other clothing.)

(Sorry, I'm feeling a bit lazy, so you'll have to live with bare links.)

This one is pretty popular for keychain use:

Fenix has single AA and 123 powered lights that are well regarded and compact:

There are a lot of other brands worthy of consideration too, of course (Fourseven's mini, Jetbeam, Klarus, Zebra, just to name a few).

There are also a lot of much larger but more capable flashlights out there.

Keychain stuff is always nice:
I use these sliver grippers way more than I thought I would. The convenience of always having them around is unparalleled:
I've been thinking of getting this, I'm a little leery about that much stuff for so little cost though:
I love this style of keyring, but it's way cheaper on eBay:
Little one-piece keychain tools have become really popular, and I really like having a little prying and screwing tool always present.
The Gerber Shard is cheap but probably at least worth what you pay for it:
This one has a bit more functionality, and is made of the magically delicious titanium:

Keychain multi-tools can be good.
Here's one from Gerber:
Supposedly the build quality isn't as good as Leatherman's though:

I'd also recommend looking for a glow in the dark lanyard.

A pen you can EDC is another "you're surprised how often you use it" item. I have an Inka and it's definitely alright, though a bit fiddly:
The biggest competitor is the classic Fisher Bullet Space Pen:

Something to write on is nice. I'm a real child of the digital age, but I still like having an analog recording medium on me. I prefer Pentalic's pocket size books to Moleskine's. They're a little thicker, but they have a flexible cover, and are usually cheaper. Here's one: but I don't know if it's ruled or grid or what. I also prefer a bright color cover to make it easy to spot.

Continuing on the writing stuff matter, a sharpie and/or a metallic (ink) sharpie are nice to have. You can get sharpies with stainless steel cases too, which feel nicer to hold, and you're a little less likely to forget somewhere.
Black (dozen):
Stainless Steel:

I think everybody should carry some sort of bandanna. I carry an off-brand buff (tubular bandanna) and an olive drab shemagh.

I like to carry a small baggie of what I call MacGuyver goods. Paracord (bound up in a hanayawa right now), some gorilla tape and electrical tape wrapped around a card, super glue, a sewing kit, zip ties, twist ties, rubber bands, safety pins, binder clips, and a few 1 quart ziplock freezer bags. (Like hell I'm finding links for all of those.)

Yet another "surprising how useful it turns out to be" item is a small mirror:

Whistles are useful for warning people of fire or danger, or calling for help, so I like to carry one:

A monocular is fun to have on your person. This particular model is really great because of its super low minimum focusing distance, which lets you use it as a sort of loupe. In regular mode it's good for looking for house numbers or your car in a parking lot, that sort of thing:

I think that's all I could come up with off the top of my head.

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/Hotrian · 5 pointsr/prusa3d

I think you’re still good to go. Those components withstand those temperature all the time - a little molten plastic likely wouldn’t have damaged them (but the residue may char and eventually become hard black rock-like deposits and/or drip on your prints) - though your cleanup may, so as always take special care and double and triple check the steps before actually doing any procedure.

It’s probably overkill, but if you really wanted to, you can replace each component separately, though you may just want to order a full assembled hotend and scavenge it due to shipping costs, you can also source the same e3d components elsewhere (hint: e3d’s website is guaranteed authentic and they ship to US for as low as a few USD ;], though you can still potentially source them cheaper - for example 5 nozzles from e3D is $15 to $20 cheaper than those same 5 nozzles from Prusa, depending on if you want it tracked or not for e3d's cheapest). Note also some parts have their wires with custom lengths by Prusa - these parts you'll probably want to source direct from Prusa.

First, for a full breakdown, you should perform a few Atomic Pulls if you can, to remove as much plastic as possible from the inside of the hotend (more info here as #2).

There are about 3 screws you should remove for best access, which would be the print fan and shroud. Now you can remove the thermistor and heat cartridge very easily, just be careful with them as they are delicate. They may have become jammed with plastic, so I would recommend heating the block before loosening their screws. Take care to remove as much plastic from the thermistor hole as you can as the thermistor does not sit proud on one end, and this side may have plastic inside that will prevent you from reseating the thermistor later. You’ll need the two smallest hex keys from the kit (hopefully these are also included with the assembled?). Use a wrench (NOT pliers - you WILL scratch up the pretty heat block) to firmly grip the heat block, then loosen the two screws on the bottom by the nozzle. With those loose, you can gently push the heat cartridge and thermistor free (I used my hex keys for this).

Now you can easily scrub the heat block without concern of damaging the wires, though take care not to turn the heat block as you will loosen the heat break, which will cause you to leak plastic here later.

If you wanted, you can now easily remove the heat block, though it is probably recommended to remove it from the extruder body first. There are about another 6 screws preventing access. Remove the heat sink fan (the Noctua), then the two extruder body screws, and the extruder body should now easily pop apart. You can remove the hotend assembly by carefully tilting and pulling it towards the front of the printer, while applying a downwards force. It’s kinda tricky, but it’s not too hard and doesn’t require much force. With the hotend assembly removed, you can remove the heat block simply by unscrewing it from the heat break. Take special care as the heat break is delicate. The heat break must be seated at a certain depth into the heat block, so take care to measure this distance as best you can.

If you wanted, you could instead or also remove the heat sink. First, carefully remove the PTFE tube. Now, simply unscrew the heat break from the heat sink. There is a thermal compound that belongs on the threads here, which Prusa is kind enough to include with (I believe) the heat sinks (but not the solo breaks).

Now you have completely disassembled the hotend. You can scavenge any viable pieces, or replace whatever piece is necessary. Again, take very special care with reseating the heat break into the heat block. It must be at a very specific depth or the nozzle will not be able to properly seat against it, and plastic will drip out from these threads.

Of course, you could also order a whole preassembled hotend. I did that, then pulled the thermistor/heat cartridge on both the full new hotend and my used hotend, then I could pull and replace the whole hotend while leaving the thermistor/heat cartridge connected (skipping the whole wire loom debacle).

Of course this is all super overkill.

  1. Heat up the hotend
  2. Remove any large remaining bits of plastic with tweezers
    • ESD Tweezers can reach into tighter spaces.
    • Ceramic Tweezers will not get hot to hold.
    • Take care as not to scratch anything.
    • Remove plastic from two screw heads on bottom of heat block (if any).
    • Remove plastic from the thermistor's hole on the side of the heat block (if any).
    • Remove plastic from between the heat block and the heat sink (if any).
  3. Carefully wipe down with q-tips/paper towels dipped in IPA
  4. Good to go.

    Just be careful around the wires. They're not super fragile, but they also aren't very strong. Too much force and you will snap them. They're not difficult or expensive to replace, but the wire loom can be annoying and time consuming
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!

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/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.

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.

Side note — shaving all of the peach fuzz off your face with tinkle razors helps! I do it once a week and my foundation always looks sooo smooth afterwards.

Yep. I use it there and the sack. But test it out first. Sometimes when it touches my inner thighs I get a chemical burn. Kneecap is fine. Inner thighs are not. Link

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 !

u/GaGaORiley · 4 pointsr/tifu
u/THE_DROG · 4 pointsr/AskReddit
u/backseatredditor · 4 pointsr/POTS

Yes! This was something I put a lot of thought into when I was really sick.

  • /u/mnicoleb1773 already mentioned body wipes, which is an essential for the spoonie life. We're living in the golden age of body wipes and I love it. There are the medical grade ones (like these) and the fancier ones they sell in stores now for, like, "active people on the go", and the deodorant ones just for underarms, or whatever. For vulva-owners, I definitely recommend a wipe designed for that area.

  • After the wipes, a good body powder is sometimes helpful (I love Lush's "silky underwear" to use under arms and the underboob area).

  • For hair, if yours is short enough you can use rinse-free shampoo (some even come in a shower cap form where you just put it on and smoosh it around and throw it out). I usually fared better with dry shampoo and a re-hydrating spray for curly/wavy hair since my ends tend to dry out.

  • And then there's shaving. Get an electric shaver that works dry. I got this basic one for $18, and it's absolutely good enough. I even use it on underarms after getting the area clean and thoroughly dry (a tiny bit of powder rubbed in before is helpful to reduce friction).

  • Another option for shaving is the shave cream by EOS. It can be used dry! And it works as long as your razor is good and sharp and you go a tiny bit slower. (I wiped a damp washcloth on my legs first and that seemed to help) And then follow it with a damp cloth to get the residue. And you can just be sitting on the floor to do this anywhere.

  • When I was feeling ambitious enough to shower, a stool was essential. My shower is tiny, and this one still fit. If you've got a bigger shower stall (or even a tub!) you can find some cuter shower chairs, even.

  • And I would sit to floss. And really just, any time that it was logistically possible.
u/thesecondkira · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I can't stand the thought of shaving, so I use this. Works perfectly once you get the hang of it.

Okay, I'll bite. These are all items I currently carry in my EDC organizer that are under $10.

Uncle Bill's tweezers (definitely not in the everyday use category, but superb for that "damn I need this" category. e.g. wife with metal filing splinter)

16 oz Nalgene (just started carrying mine and glad I did. e.g. I need to drink more water)

Mirror (sure you can use your phone, but I've found it handy a few times. e.g. at work place before meetings; to pick that food out your teeth after lunch)

Toothpicks (to pick said food from teeth before meeting)

WD-40 pen (cuz... WD-40. e.g. squeaks and stuff)

• Hand Sanitizer pen (because germs. e.g. after a BBQ Brisket Quesadilla for lunch)

Gorilla Glue super glue (again, used a few times, but in a "save the day" type of situation.)

• Plastic or Metal Collar Stays (I always seem to forget collar stays, so I pack them in my EDC organizer)

$10 (in cash) (I've forgotten my wallet once before—but had my EDC organizer in my laptop bag—still got to eat lunch that day)

Yes I realize 4 of my items specifically mention "lunch".

u/NearlyLegit · 4 pointsr/EDC

At the moment I'm running:

TEC Centipede - Titanium ruler that's about 8.5cm in length. I measure things irregularly, but not enough to warrant a full tape measure which will take up more pocket space. Feels super well made.

Leatherman Micra - Just got it, and I'm torn on how much I like it. Whilst beefy, the scissors sometimes flex whilst cutting thicker items (so it goes between the blades laterally). I've never had this problem with my Classic SD, and may end up moving up to a 74mm Victorinox like the Executive for the sake of the bigger scissors.

Boker Vox Access Tool - Titanium prybar with a carbide glass breaker on the end. I've come from the SD Titanium Prybar which was bloody useless for nail pulling due to the groove literally being a 'V' without any guiding for nails, and the edge of the bottle opener kept digging into my hand when I used it. Although for it's follies, the tip lip is very thin (yet sturdy) and can get between thinner crevices than the VAT; I also drove in a couple of nails with the SD, and in seeing if I could unscrew a half in one with the VAT, I chipped the guiding groove for the nail puller (not severely, but it was kind of disheartening as I literally just bought it and didn't think it was much of a stress test).

Kershaw Pub - Technically this isn't on my keys, as I put it in the 'snuff pocket' in my jeans, it's beefier than the VAT for box opening, and the blade is about the same size as a Stanley blade. It's a bit of a different design and great for fidgeting. Not so great for fidgeting when people see you, but fun all the same.

I've currently retired:

The SD Ti Prybar - See above, a great little prybar, hampered by a frankly stupid decision to put a bottle opener on it. NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS A BOTTLE OPENER.

Victorinox Classic SD - A present which I absolutely love, however I'm in the pursuit for something 'beefier', although the scissors on this are second to none for all the little odd jobs I've had over the years.

Uncle Bills Sliver Grippers - Brilliant tweezers for splinters, however the first day I put them on my keys, and then sat on my keys, I hadn't put them in the holder right and they stabbed me in the arse. These tweezers have never been on my keys since.

Resqme Car Escape tool - Had it on the keychain, realised I'd only ever use it in the car, and now I keep it in the glovebox as I have the glass breaker on the VAT.

Leatherman Squirt PS4 - An absolutely fantastic multitool let down by a shit pair of scissors which have a lot of play between the blades. It results in a lot of rough cuts and ultimately spoils a perfect out of the box multi-tool. In the pursuit of better scissors and a lighter set of keys, I've currently retired this fantastic piece of kit.

Leatherman Brewzer - I absolutely loved this little prybar, but it broke in half when I tried to get a little shelf stud out of a bookcase, and it just shattered my confidence in the product to the point that I can't be bothered sending it in under warranty, as I know I'd never use it again.

Gerber Dime - I bought this at the same time as the Squirt PS4 because I couldn't decide between them. After taking them both out of the packing and comparing them side by side one after the other, it was instantly obvious that the Leatherman was just the better fit, so this was retired pretty much instantly and was gifted within an hour.

True Utility Keytool - First keytool I ever had and it was great for years! Practically invisible and as I only used it for the file, the mini screwdriver, and the thread cutter, it was fantastic. Never had an issue with the quality, and never had the need to take it off the key it was on, I only stopped carrying it because I don't use the type of key it works with anymore, and don't want to carry it round for the sake of it when I have so many other options. Great little buy though.

I'm probably going to buy:

Victorinox Manager - This is pretty much the best multitool for what I really need, and it has a pen. It's just 58mm and I really want a larger pair of scissors, however it has all the tools I've used recently, and it has a pen!

Another Prybar. As soon as I find a beefy titanium 80mm~ straight prybar which doesn't have a bottle opener on it, and instead has another useful purpose I'm going to get it. Hell, even if it doesn't have a secondary purpose I'll probably get it as well.

u/jsamhead · 4 pointsr/EDC

Ok here goes. Pocket breakdown.

Front right pocket: Phone

Clipped to edge of front right pocket: Knife

Clipped to edge of back right pocket: Pen

Back left pocket: Wallet

Clipped to edge front left pocket: Flashlight

Also clipped to front left pocket: Keychain

Now for my flashlight philosophy. Phone lights are just kind of fine but they really stink as flashlights because they aren't very bright and can't throw more than about 15 feet. My $10 Olight i3E keychain light can throw like 100 feet, which is not all that far. My sidewalk from the road to my house is longer than 15 feet and I like to be able to see a good ways in front of me when walking at night. My main flashlight (Emisar D4) has adjustable brightness so I can put it really low in a movie theater or something when I need see to go pee but not disturb anyone, and I can also put it on full brightness to turn on the sun in any given direction if I need to see far or see a lot of stuff. Mostly it's just plain easier to grab a flashlight clipped to your picket and press a button than it is to pull out your phone, unlock it, swipe the quick settings onto screen, and then click the flashlight button.

Knife philosophy: I carry a dedicated knife because it's easier, faster, and more comfortable to use than any multitool. It always stays clipped in the right hand, tip up position so I just pull it out, deploy the blade, and start using it (and that all takes like half a second or less). If I tried doing the same with my Leatherman Squirt I'd have to pull out my keychain, find the Squirt, open the blade with the nail nic and then reposition my hand to start using it. That requires about 3 seconds (6x as long) and BOTH HANDS. Often when I need to cut something I'm supporting the thing with one hand already so I only have one hand free to get my knife.

Tweezers: take a look at these. You might be able to add them to your keychain:

I hope this helps!

I can shave my legs maybe once a week. Any more than that I get ingrown hairs. None of the prevention tips have ever worked for me. I don’t even attempt to shave my bikini line. Ingrowns there are a nightmare.

Magic cream shave (a depilatory cream for black men) is what I had been using for my bikini line. Sometimes my legs also. But it is messy and smelly.

More recently I bought Panasonic electric shaver and veet trimmer for my bikini line. Complete game changer! It doesn’t give you as close of a shave but I can shave every ingrowns.

u/living06 · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

I really felt your pain while reading this post. I myself suffered for horrible ingrowns, infected puss bumps, and ugly dark scars. It really affected my self esteem. My first suggestion is to try electric shaving if you already don't . Here is the shaver i tried out

It improved my problems noticeably but not completely about 60-70% improvement. I also found that exfoliation even though it's recommended actually made everything darker and more irritated. So try not exfoliating . Despite all of these improvements I still felt ugly and gross and was fed up.

... So I got laser and my life literally changed in a day. I've never been so proud of a decision in my life . With the very first session 40% of my hair was gone! And it barely felt like anything ! No ingrowns and the scars that I thought I would have to bleach or get some type of fancy treatment to get rid of started fading instantly. It's the constant irritation of shaving that doesn't allow scars to fade. However, definitely try my first suggestion with the electric razor first. It's a lot cheaper and might work out for you.

AlexandrasGirlyTalk has some great tips on shaving, she even did a bikini line maintenance routine video. I tend to wax my bikini line during the summer, but for more intimate areas like closely around my vulva, I like to use electric shavers. I use this one from Panasonic. It's ok, not super great but it is really quick (and cheap) and easy to use.

u/Heart_of_Tara · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Me too! I wound up ordering this one from Amazon tonight. The reviews were pretty good and it has a charger and a trimmer. I figure that if it turns out to be junk, at least it was $20 and not $50 or somesuch.

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.

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.

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.

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

Finishing Touch Flawless Women's Painless Hair Remover

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/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/BertEast · 2 pointsr/transtimelines
u/shyember · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

Searching the major trans forums finds most girls have had luck with home "laser" (really IPL) systems.

The one I've heard the most about is actually the Flash n' Go by Silk'n, probably for its low entry price.

Edit: having had actual (diode) laser treatments (and finding them quite effective), I can imagine that home IPL systems would produce similar results. The principles are the same, after all, it's just the power level that's different.

You'll also need something to clip your leads when building your coils and some tweezers to pinch them tight and make them perform efficiently. These but regular fingernail/toenail clippers will do, and these allow you to pinch the coils while firing your mod, which you cannot do with all metal tweezers.

u/racheeeanne · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

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

Bikini: Sugaring and/or trimmer like this

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.

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

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

Probably pretty painful I'd imagine but I exfoliate a bit so hopefully not to bad. I ended up getting this

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.

to be clear, this is not a plug: I came across an add for [this] ( a few weeks ago and decided what the hell, it's only 20 bucks.

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

u/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:

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

u/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.

You can try an electric razor. This one is marketed to women, but I've used it for bikini-line shaping and it worked well enough. I don't see why it, or a similar one, wouldn't work around the corner. It might require some contortioning, but it's less worrysome than a straight edge razor.

u/GoodGivingGrant · 2 pointsr/poledancing

Shaving your legs can be a huge pain in the ass but I have found it makes a gigantic difference in my ability to not only grip the pole but maintain my stamina during multiple classes. If you happen to sweat heavily (like me), your body hair is not only collecting and creating more moisture but it's preventing anything you apply on your skin from being fully effective. Grip aid, for example, just gets caught on the hair instead of your thighs. If you've been using a razor for shaving, I would ditch it and instead pick up a simple electric wet/dry razor instead. You can even get away with just shaving your inner thighs and back of knees if those are the areas of greatest concern.

u/Kalistar · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

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:

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/notahotdesk · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

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

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

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

I'm a married lady. My husband knows better than to complain, and anything I do is for my own personal comfort and tastes. I think he does more "landscaping" than I do. ;)

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:

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.

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/lex1319 · 1 pointr/cringepics
u/YepYepImaRep · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Serious answer from someone else who suffers from pseudofolliculitis barbae, albeit on a very mild level.

1)Electric razors

2) Use a DE razor, a fresh razor, and shave every other day max, shave in the shower at the end of your shower, use sensitive shaving cream with menthol and wash your face with castile soap afterwards or a salicylic acid treated facial wash and use a soothing medicated balm. Never shave against the grain. You will not get a smooth shave. Give up on it. Experiment with razor brands. Astra and Feather are good but might be too sharp.

3) You are a black guy, so I don't need to teach you the wonders of cocoa butter. Sooth your face, treat it like a baby's bottom.

4) Barium-sulfide based depilatories:

5) Grow a sexy beard.

6) Get some creams that contain allointin and retin-a. Smear that shit on your face. I suggest mixing up some cocoa butter, allointin cream, retin-a cream, and some salicylic acid cream and using it as an after-shave balm.

7) Laser hair removal. Sharks with frickin laser beams.

u/blfstl · 1 pointr/asktransgender

It sounds like I have similar facial hair issues as you. (note i’m still only in the shaving, sometimes-feminine presenting stage so my perspective may be very different from yours).

This is the depilatory cream I use:

It cuts down on my beard shadow better than anything else I have used. Only problem is my skin is too sensitive to use it more than once every 3 days. But it at least helps to get ready for a particular day! And the day after using this is usually similar to what I look like just after shaving with a razor.

But you have to mix it with water yourself, I think irregularities in mixes make it not work 100% reliably (that, or it just needs to be used when the hair is still pretty short to really be effective—i haven’t fully determined why it’s more effective some times than others).

u/isiphonyourgas · 1 pointr/reloading

What is your load data with this magic powder?

u/myfapaccount_istaken · 1 pointr/crossdressing

I have the razor mentioned above and have clipped my sac a few times with it even while pulling tight.. Be careful.
I have used [Magic Shaving Powder] ( often and find it good if you have at least two weeks of hair on the legs and "nether regions." Do a small test run on your privates first with this though, as it can lead to irritation but not for me. Also I suggest wearing gloves while applying and removing it otherwise you hands will get nice and soft, and possibly lose all the skin on them (not good)

u/Awildbadusername · 1 pointr/MtF

Sorry here it is. This particular vendor massively overcharges but look around on Amazon for a better deal. I paid about $5 USD per can

u/eyecite · 1 pointr/AskMen

I've heard of rashes. Would not risk.

However, they make this stuff specifically for facial hair, it was originally made for black men with trouble with razor burn/bumps/ingrown hairs due to how thick and coarse their hair is. I'll try to find a link.

edit: I'm 75% sure this is it. I've never used it, but I hear good things. There are several types within even that brand only. Do some research!

u/Embarrassinghuman · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide
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/JiggIePhysics · 1 pointr/amiugly

u/abrownb1 · 1 pointr/MakeupAddiction

I'm Italian so I've tried about every product to remove the fuzz and [this] ( electric facial trimmer is the best! No irritation whatsoever and it pivots around curves. 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

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

u/drsteve103 · 1 pointr/DrSteve

define "normal".

It's not too crazy uncommon, to the point that laser companies are advertising about it. :-)

Let me know how it goes if you do decide to do something about it.

Just DON'T USE NAIR or anything like that. if you don't believe me.


u/Silencegbeu · 1 pointr/asktransgender

You are in the same situation as me, Im not on hormones and i have thick long body hair, doing the same as you currently too, trying to find the best way to remove the hair.

Epilators are sometimes called "Electric Waxers" from what ive seen, but basically anywhere you can wax, you can epilate (So yes, all the places you said it should work).

Razors annoy me too, so ive been looking into other ways of removing it too. I just got some Nair today to try, but i was actually looking for Veet hair removal, as they have a special one designed for men, but i couldn't find it in the stores (But i found Nair, and it was half price so yay!)

Have you tried using off the shelf wax strips? they can be costly depending on what brand, i got Boots own ones for £2.94 (Again, half price sale though) yesterday, 20 re-usable strips (To an extent.. i was using them on very hair legs, it took 1 pack and 1/4 to do 90% of my legs). Worked very easily, you just rub them between your hands to warm them up and fold them back over and rub again between uses.

I haven't tried doing my chest yet however as since i may be getting hormones next month depending on how things go, i might get a full wax professionally to get rid of all the chest hair and back hair (As it is very long and thick) so it is easier for me to manage later.

u/reverend-spooner · 1 pointr/screenshots

After having been told my danglies looked like an elderly rastafarian I decided to take the plunge and buy some of this as previous shaving attempts had only been mildly succesful and I nearly put my back out trying to reach the more difficult bits. Being a bit of a romantic I thought I would do the deed on the missus's birthday as a bit of a treat.
I ordered it well in advance and working in the North sea I considered myself a bit above some of the characters writing the previous reviews and wrote them off as soft office types...oh my fellow sufferers how wrong I was. I waited until the other half was tucked up in bed and after giving some vague hints about a special surprise I went down to the bathroom. Initially all went well and I applied the gel and stood waiting for something to happen. I didn't have long to wait.
At first there was a gentle warmth which in a matter of seconds was replaced by an intense burning and a feeling I can only describe as like being given a barbed wire wedgie by two people intent on hitting the ceiling with my head. Religion hadn't featured much in my life until that night but I suddenly became willing to convert to any religion to stop the violent burning around the turd tunnel and what seemed like the destruction of the meat and two veg. Struggling to not bite through my bottom lip I tried to wash the gel of in the sink and only succeeded in blocking the plughole with a mat of hair. Through the haze of tears I struggled out of the bathroom across the hall into the kitchen by this time walking was not really possible and I crawled the final yard to the fridge in the hope of some form of cold relief. I yanked the freezer drawer out and found a tub of ice cream, tore the lid of and positioned it under me. The relief was fantastic but only temporary as it melted fairly quickly and the fiery stabbing soon returned .
Due to the shape of the ice cream tub I hadn't managed to give the starfish any treatment and I groped around in the drawer for something else as I was sure my vision was going to fail fairly soon.I grabbed a bag of what I later found out was frozen sprouts and tore it open trying to be quiet as I did so.I took a handful of them and tried in vain to clench some between the cheeks of my arse. This was not doing the trick as some of the gel had found it's way up the chutney channel and it felt like the space shuttle was running it's engines behind me.
This was probably and hopefully the only time in my life I was going to wish there was a gay snowman in the kitchen which should give you some idea of the depths I was willing to sink to in order to ease the pain. The only solution my pain crazed mind could come up with was to gently ease one of the sprouts where no veg had gone before.
Unfortunately, alerted by the strange grunts coming from the kitchen the other half chose that moment to come and investigate and was greeted by the sight of me, arse in the air, strawberry ice cream dripping from my bell end pushing a sprout up my arse while muttering..." Ooooh that feels good ". Understandably this was a shock to her and she let out a scream and as I hadn't heard her come in it caused an involutary spasm of shock in myself which resulted in the sprout being ejected at quite some speed in her direction. I can understand that having a sprout farted against your leg at 11 at night in the kitchen probably wasn't the special surprise she was expecting and having to explain to the kids the next day what the strange hollow in the ice cream was didn't improve my status...So to sum it up Veet removes hair, dignity and self respect...:)

u/limes05 · 1 pointr/TrollXChromosomes

Electric razor. Bought mine from Amazon. Not quite as smooth as a wax but pretty much zero pain (as long as you trim really long hair before having the area), NO RAZOR BURN and because its so painless I keep up with it WAY more often than I did waxes.

I got the DESS permanent hair removal device. It works amazing. I also use this electric razor that works great. It's only around $15 and it blades are good for like 6 months for me. In combination it's good enough after a couple laser sessions. I would also recommend getting professional laser hair removal for the face done at a clinic, their lasers are more powerful. Typically laser sessions are $100-$250 a month, or total around $1500-$2500.

Also I can use the trimmer for my bathing suit lines and then shave down using the guarded blade part.

Never have bumps, either. I have dark hair and light skin so I can’t get away without doing it every day if I’m wearing skirts/shorts all the time, but most of the time I’m in jeans or long skirts so that doesn’t bug me- it’s quick, painless, and doesn’t need any extra prep.

First... TALISMAN! Oh god what an amazing book!!!! <3

Ahem, ok back to the program!

This dog toy was gifted to me a while back for my dachshund and he LOVED IT. Normally this type of toy will last about 3 hours with Harley. But this one lasted DAYS.

Another dog toy is this type of Kong. When I got it I was like ... yeah he's going to kill that in no time. But the strangest thing happened.... he did destroy it but lo and behold, there is a ball in there (the larger one) that is just a smidge too big for his mouth. He can get it in his mouth but it takes some work. Anyway, my dog LOVES that darned ball. It's been like 2 months and he still has it. It's amazing. And he so loves that thing.

Since you have a Kindle Fire on your wishlist, you should also add a cover. I found this one to be very well rated plus come in a very good variety of colors and pattersn.

Another must have item to go with that wishlist entry would be [screen protectors](

Last but not least, cables to hook the tablet up to your tv so you can watch movies on the big screen!

As for an item I need, I could really use one of these and you just do not want to know how badly I could use it =P

As for your happy picture, here is Harley when we got the first toy. He was very excited!

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

u/Ashlee863 · 1 pointr/crossdressing

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

u/dsm-lxix · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

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

I use it once a week for maintenance. It doesn't remove hair as well as waxing does, but it gets maybe 97% off. I usually pluck a few of hairs after each use and I'm done!

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

Oh jeez, I'm sorry. was one of them the manual, spring-based one? That one has given me zero irritation, while the other two have given me some. Might be worth a try if you haven't tried it at all.

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.

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.

Emjoi AP-18 Emagine Dual Opposed 72 Tweezer Head Epilator

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/JaggedOne · 1 pointr/EDC

I keep Uncle Bill's Sliver Grippers and a Brush Pick in my wallet inside of a custom sheath made from card stock, tape and staples.

The Sliver Grippers are much more capable than SAK tweezers, and far lighter than a SAK Classic. The Brush Pick is plastic, like a SAK toothpick, but comes in bulk for relatively cheap, so you can toss them after they start to get a little gross and grab a new one. Also, the brush bit on the back fits right between my teeth and knocks food out of gaps in ways a SAK toothpick never could for me.

u/dogswithpeoplehands · 1 pointr/EDC

Uncle Bill’s Key Chain Tweezers are an inexpensive, convenient, and solid option if you go this route. I’m sure there are even nicer options, but I’m not the kind of person who needs premium tweezers on a daily basis

u/massacre3000 · 1 pointr/EDC

You can get quite a few of those together for $25, but obviously different places. I would map out what you use the most:
Notepad, pen, lighter, pliers, scissors, screwdriver, flashlight are all great to have. are a better choice over the streamlight. You can often pick up Micras for $15 or less at Target or Menards on clearance/sale

I prefer the Meretac, but is a good option

You can find a lot of Amazon items... I'll go through my purchase history and see what else...

u/amstarcasanova · 1 pointr/beauty

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

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

@OP. Use this stuff:
2 tips tho.
Apply with those disposable gloves. The ones you get 50 for £1 for. Cheap rubbish... but protects your hands.
Tip 2: After you see great pain free results on your legs and body... DO NOT apply to a unibrow if you have one. Some silly bitch did. I was that silly bitch. Scabbed it up for a week.
This stuff is fine for bodys tho.
Just apply it.. .leave it for 5 or 6 mins... then run down FIRM with a wet shammy. The hair all... disappears. Love this product whilst I await to get my laser booked in.

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

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/bpostal · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

I don't have any idea on what's best in the RTA world because I pretty much stopped at the Subtank Mini but I can chip in on the supplies.

I purchased my cotton and wire from amazon, mainly because I had prime and shipping was free. The cotton I use is Koh Gen Do but really any organic, unbleached cotton is fine.

For wire, I bought a small spool of 26ga A1 Kanthal from Lightning Vapes but again, as long as it's A1 Kanthal resistance wire (or Nickel/Titanium for TC building) it should be ok.

Pretty much only picked 26ga because that's what was suggested. I don't do any crazy builds so it's worked out fine.

The little blue screwdriver that came with the tank is what I use to wrap my coils (using steam engine), otherwise you'll need a build kit or something else to build on.

I've got a little pouch that also contains a small pair of scissors, nail clippers, ceramic tipped tweezers and a 10ml bottle of unflavored VG in case I need something to prime the coil with.

If you're going to build really low, I'd suggest some sort of ohm reader to save your mod any extra wear and tear but it's not really needed as long as you've got a decent regulated mod.

Hope that helps and best of luck!

u/GoldenGonzo · 1 pointr/Coilporn

Rake across the coil with something stiff like you're strumming a guitar. This gets the hotspots out 10 times out of 10 for me. I have ceremic tweezers like this (different brand, same tweezer), and use the opposite end (as in the non-tweezing end) to do it.

u/DontHateThePlayer · 1 pointr/Vaping101

Amazon doesn't sell a lot of vapes, but they do sell some vape stuff like batteries, chargers, kanthal, cotton, etc.

I'd recommend some ceramic tweezers if you don't already have a pair.

u/Arsenault185 · 1 pointr/beadsprites

I find that they twist way too much and sled one pitch together evenly.

This is what I have. Very comfortable, right amount of tension, and does a decent job gripping.

u/totaldrk62 · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

Another suggestion would be to get a pair of ceramic tweezers so you can squeeze your coils together while you are pulsing them. These are pretty decent.

u/JamesIncandenza · 1 pointr/electronic_cigarette

You could buy a coil master V2, but you don't really need to buy one of those full kits.

I bought a coil spinner for $5 at a B&M, but you can get away with wrapping them around the shaft of a precision screwdriver or a drill bit.

You should get an ohm meter. I know you can check it on your mod, but it still can short out and ruin it. I have done this.

You can use any scissors. You might want to pick up some fabric ones later on. I use this this.

You can buy wire cutters if you don't already have them, but honestly I use a nail clipper most often.

You can buy cotton cheaply on Amazon. But it takes a long time to ship. I ordered mine January 7th and it will arrive February 24th. So in the meantime I picked some up at a B&M for $5 which isn't a lot of cotton, but will last me for longer than it will take for my order to arrive.

You can also use any tweezers to pinch and position coils, but if you want to buy ceramic ones, then you can do it while firing the coil. You should not dry fire or pinch nickel or titanium coils though. Just stainless steel or kanthal.

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.

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.

I hear that dermablading (shaving) your face will help with makeup application if you didn't want to go the waxing route.

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.

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 :)

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.

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 use these for my sweaters and pants too sometimes. Just be gentle until you get a feel for how much pressure to apply. Use a lint roller to pickup the shaved off fuzzies.

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.

So cute! I love the different colors of pink in your eyeshadow, lips and hair. They go well together!! I bet you could experiment with incorporating a pink like your lips blended into your eyeshadow.

I know people have pointed out suggestions for your brows, I just wanted to add that I use these little facial razors to shape my brows:

Makes it super easy to get into those tight spots for a clean look, but without having to spend the time/hassle of plucking. Just a suggestion!

Still my favourite.

EDIT: Fixed the link.

Why not do an electric/ battery razor I switched to one of those after getting tired of having cuts from a regular razor.. I know they don’t get a close a regular razor.

This is one I used and like razor

Get some of this.

Females or males can use it.

Straight male here.

Been using it for the last 4 years. Apply a generous amount to your fingers and just slop it around the hole or anywhere there's hair, count to 6 minutes or get a stop watch, wash off in shower with a cloth. Never had a single ingrown hair and stays completely smooth for atleast 2 months for me.

I never said it was fair. xD

I also didn't say they had to do more than use a $20 electric razor in the process.
