Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover

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.

    I actually saw one of these at the store and immediately thought “Oh this has to be a gimmick that doesn’t work at ALL.” Glad to hear I was wrong!!

    • BeautyJudy

      I would have thought the same!!!

    I just got one of these and can’t wait to try it. There’s nothing like a nice smooth face for makeup application.

    • BeautyJudy

      So true! I love how smooth my face feels after!

    I’ve seen commercials for this and wondered about it.

    • BeautyJudy

      I figured if it didn’t work, I’d keep my receipt and take it back. But I lucked out!

    I bought this in the fall and use it about once a week. It’s great for peach fuzz but not for my upper lip where the hairs are thick (and gross). It’s nothing like an Epi. It’s much gentler and more for hair than skin.

    • BeautyJudy

      Agreed Marcia! Although it does well around my lips, but my hair is light and thin. I do have to take more passes over that area than say my cheeks or forehead! But it definitely works for me and I haven’t used my eyebrow razor there in a month! It is a hair removal device, not a dead skin exfoliated, but I was happy that it did take care of some of my dead skin cells – it was probably because they were caught up in my peach fuzz!

    I wonder, how long will the results last?

    • BeautyJudy

      Good question. I initially did this on December 28th. I just did it again this past weekend because it dawned on me that some of my fuzz was back! When I went over my face, the skin became smoother after I was done, but there was not as much fuzz collected, not like in my photo above – so clearly not a ton had grown back!

    Judy, thank you for reviewing this product because I have been curious about it. Tell me, is it an epilator? I have two epilators from Epi, and I use them but they are not pain-free. I have gotten used to the pain and I soldier on. Is this a razor or an epilator or something else that I’ve never heard of? Before I spend the $20, I want to find out if it is different from what I already own. Thank you!!

    • BeautyJudy

      I have not really ventured into hair removal devices so I’m no expert! But I do not believe this is an epilator. I just did some online searching and found it described through the site “HighYa” (which did a much more thorough review of the device and comparisons than I did just detailing my experience) as a single electric spinning razor head in the coils. There is no pain. I felt like I was scraping my skin with the DermaPlaner, in comparison. I feel it does remove some dead skin, based on what I’ve seen when I clean the head, but its primary purpose is hair removal. The company also seeks replacement heads, two for $7.99. I’ve used it twice, and both times, I’ve been pleased. I was really worried it would be gimmicky!

      • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

        Thank you, Judy, for the info. I will check out HighYa too. It sounds like you right that it isn’t an epilator. I’ll be curious to hear how the hair grows back.

        • BeautyJudy

          I don’t think the hair grew back differently, to be honest, but either it wasn’t as “full” or long as it was when I first used it (Dec 28) because this past weekend I didn’t have the pile of fuzz you see in my post, it was more cleaning out the head that dumping out a small ball of fuzz! Also – I meant “sells replacement heads,” not seeks!!! I’m sure you knew that but I felt bad for the spelling error lol!

  • Lola Seicento

    This is such a great, and affordable, device!

    • BeautyJudy

      Agreed!
