Hey y’all! It’s Angela, one of Collin’s Sidekicks here in Atlanta, GA!👩🏻💻
As my 45th birthday creeps up on me (November 12th if you’re the present buying type 😁), things just don’t seem to work like they used to on my body. Add 12 rounds of chemo to the mix, and you have a recipe for one set of crazy hormonal changes!
Over the past year, I’ve been getting rogue chin hairs (and one or two crazy long hairs on my cheek that often seem to just pop up overnight). I’ve gotten to the point where I keep a pair of tweezers in my car, as I always seem to find the hairs while I’m sitting in traffic (FYI Tweezerman Tweezers are my favorite).
I’ve also started to develop peach fuzz aaaand… a mustache.😩 I wouldn’t say I’m getting a full-on Tom Selleck (circa 1985 Magnum P.I.) ‘stache, but it’s there and it’s not cute like his was back in the day.😉
I’ve tried everything…
Electric razors are ok but are too bulky to throw in my bag, and even those little facial trimmers you see at Target and Dollar Tree don’t really do the trick. Oh, and you don’t even want to know about the facial coil thing (a torture device I wouldn’t wish on an enemy).
My skin is too sensitive for waxing, as it always feels like Hannibal Lecter had a go at my face. Threading is a yes for my brows but a no for the rest of my face, as it’s just too painful!
Late night infomercials are my jam!
I’m a sucker for a good, late night infomercial (It Cosmetics hooked me in that way…Y’all, their stuff is amazing). One night, I saw a commercial for the Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover. My first thought was that it sort of looked like the old school Epilady from the 90s (that’s way back in the 1900s for all you youngsters out there ☺). I have flashbacks of that horrible, self-inflicted hair removal pain.
The Finishing Touch is my new BFF! It is 100% pain-free and is just a little bit bigger than a tube of lipstick. You can easily throw it in your bag, or keep it in your car for when you find those rogue hairs while sitting in traffic like I do.🙋🏻♀️
The Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover sells for around $19.99 almost everywhere – Ulta, Target, Walmart, and Amazon.
But does the Finishing Touch really work? 🤔 My review:
For all you weirdos out there like me who want to see physical proof that it’s doing the job, there’s a little reservoir that collects the hair so you can see how well it’s working. It even comes with a battery, so it is ready to go right out of the box. I would highly recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin, as it has an 18K gold plated hypoallergenic head that’s gentle on all skin types.
What it won’t do is shave your legs or work anywhere you have thick, coarse hair (sorry fellas, that means you’re out). Are there better alternatives out there? I’m sure there are, but for $20 bucks, this works well for me and doesn’t break the bank. If you’re worried about facial hair growing back thicker, I’m here to tell you that I’ve been using this product for over three months, and my hair has not grown back any thicker than it was before.
Note: I’m not being paid by the Finishing Touch people for this post. I just love this product and wanted to share my experience with you.❤ If you’re plagued with dreaded facial hair, give it a try! Bearded ladies, unite!
