Ever tried an Epicare? It's similar to threading, which is a great way to remove unwanted fuzz from the face. Threading has been used for many years and is still used today is some specialty salons. Because it requires some definite skill, typically you need to have someone else do it for you.
That's where Epicare comes in handy. Epicare is a handheld tool that is used to remove face fuzz in the same way threading does, at the root. It is made of a long, thin spring-like device with handles on each end. You basically bend the device and twist the handles so that the spring rolls across your skin removing any fuzz as it goes. So, you get smooth, fuzz-free skin without waxing, bleaching, or those nasty smelling hair removing lotions.
I'm totally not going to lie. I was really scared to try this thing out. My face skin is super-sensitive and because I just have a little bit of fuzz, I don't typically make a big deal about removing it. BUT, I was really intrigued by this thing...lol. So, I had to try it out. I will start by saying it was easier than I thought it would be and it really goes quick, if you are focused. I was also given some really good tips, which I will totally share with you all.
Read the instruction manual. (For all of you rolling your eyes, just do it ♥)
Watch the video so you can see how its done.
You can either use an ice cube to numb the area by rubbing it on the area you are going Epicare for about 1-2 minutes before, or you can try a warm, damp towel to prepare skin instead. I tried both methods and found that my skin responded much better when I used the warm, damp towel for a few minutes before I used the Epicare.
The BIG question...Does it hurt?
While I can't say that it hurts, it does sting a bit at first. That is why I definitely recommend following the tips above. I have noticed that the "sting" does only last for a short time and doesn't leave my skin overly red or irritated. After using the Epicare several times, I have noticed that it doesn't sting as bad now when I use it, so it's like the pain is decreasing over time. I definitely recommend this as an alternative to other hair removal methods for the face. Even with my sensitive skin, the Epicare has become an easy- effortless (and almost pain-free) way of keeping my face fuzz-free.
Epicare is available for $15 in eight colors at www.epicarehome.com.
