DOES IT WORK?
I ordered the item on Amazon and have been using it for about two months — pain-free. According to Finishing Touch, it uses a technology that “erases hair by paring it down through a spinning head.” I’m not sure exactly what that means, but it works and it doesn’t hurt!
More than 5,000 positive reviews on Amazon agree. Women also noted that their hair did not grow back darker or thicker and that it does not irritate skin as some chemical hair removers can.
WHO SHOULD USE IT?
For me, the ideal use of this product is to tame my wild eyebrows that my mother always wanted to tweeze. To use the hair remover, move it in circles on the area where you want to remove hair. While I would describe a slight tug when you first put it to the skin, that goes away quickly and you feel nothing but the vibration of the machine. It also comes with a light to help see the hairs you’re targeting.
The product works well for women with more noticeable hairs around the upper lip or even just to give your face a smooth surface for makeup application, removing “peach fuzz.”
My husband, who has a beard and mustache and needs a new trimmer, is even using it regularly to shape his beard!
Though, the manufacturer recommends using it on hair no more than a quarter of an inch in length, and says users should replace the head about every six months.
WHAT SETS THIS HAIR REMOVER APART?
The trimmer is battery-powered, making it convenient for travel. It does need to be cleaned after each use, though it's easy to clean: Just remove the head and brush away the hair.
OTHER TOP HAIR REMOVERS
If you want to try painless hair removal but the one we tried isn't what you're looking for, here are some other options that can help get rid of unwanted hair.
For about the same price as the Finishing Touch product, this hair remover is very similar, but not as popular on Amazon. It comes with a replacement head, storage pouch and cleaning brush. Plus, it features an LED light and waterproof design.
