Nothing to disclose
A few months ago, I bought a Tweezerman DermaPlaner because I wanted to get on board with taking the peach fuzz off my face. The last facial I had, several months ago, the esthetician told me my face was very dry, and tried to upsell me on an added treatment that I declined. I decided to take matters in my own hands.
I was unhappy with the performance of the DermaPlaner, which was basically a small razor for your face. It didn’t seem to do anything for me, not even properly shave off my peach fuzz. I should have returned it but it’s sitting in my medicine cabinet, unused.
Last month I heard about the Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover through the grapevine and decided I’d try that. I picked it up for $19.99 at Walgreens with some of my Christmas money.
Flawless is a sleek, white and rose gold round tube that has a tiny bit of weight to it only because of the one AA battery that powers it. In addition to one battery, the package comes with a tiny cleaning brush to keep the head of the device clean and sweep out the hair collected.
The top of the device, which you rub in circular motion around your face to remove hair, is thick coil and seems to vibrate when it’s on.
Flawless also has a small light to help you see the tiny hairs you’re removing from your face as you work.
I made sure my skin was clean and dry before I attempted to use Flawless, which I did on my couch, using a small mirror to look as I went. I would say I worked the device around my face between five and 10 minutes, maybe less, going over some areas multiple times – something you really need to take care doing with the DermaPlaner I mentioned previously. It had a limit as to how many times you could go over one area of your face (again – it was more like a razor than Flawless).
There was no pain in this hair removal, either, which was a huge bonus!
Overall, I was thrilled with the results!
On the left, you can see the peach fuzz and tiny hairs. On the right, you can see that they are all gone!
I found that it got rid of the small hairs around my lips, but it took a few passes to get them all.
And not to be gross, but I was amazed when I popped open the head to clean it, and found a small pile of my facial peach fuzz there!
It looks like it not only took off my peach fuzz (which looks an awful lot like it’s gray!) and a couple actual hairs (um, what was sticking out of my face that I didn’t notice?!) but it also did a little dead skin clean-up, which I was pleased with.
After I used the device I wet my face and patted it dry, then applied my moisturizer.
I am really happy with Flawless, and just noticed the other day I need to take another pass at it across my face because my peach fuzz is back!
Have you seen Flawless in Walgreens or anywhere else? Used it? I didn’t realize when I bought it that it’s one of those “As seen on TV” type of gadgets – you can find more about it here.
