AIBU to tell you that I LOVE plucking my chin hairs?

SO satisfying.

I also love it when they get to the bristly stage, running my fingers over my chin to find them, then plucking them without a mirror.

YANBU especially the coarse or very dark ones.

Yes yes.
I always have one that has a barb on the end when I pull it out

MummyPig24 Wed 07-Jan-15 21:50:36

Love it. I have 2 on my chin and 2 on my neck. So satisfying.

Nope, it's the only pleasure I have in life ;)

I think those barbs on the end are face mites? Read about it once, see here

Us ithoughtofitfirsts women are handsome women but when we get old we get chin hairs. haven't got any yet but I know they're just waiting there. Brewing in the follicles.

Not at all. I consider it the sole pleasure available to me as I inexorably transform into the man from The Twits.

MrsBertMacklin I now can't stop scratching!

Mistlewoeandwhine Wed 07-Jan-15 22:13:51

Yanbu. Love it, but it's torture if you find one at a tweezerless moment.

morethanpotatoprints Wed 07-Jan-15 22:15:07

Me too, but I have to do it so much these days.
So rewarding to get one of those stubborn buggers out. grin

Yup, chin hairs, and the white eyebrows that join up my black eyebrows, like a reverse badger monobrow!

TaliZorahVasNormandy Wed 07-Jan-15 22:16:49

I have like 6 of the fuckers, I got one earlier in the car mirror with just my fingers.

MrsBertMacklin Wed 07-Jan-15 22:19:07

Oh yes, when you don't have tweezers.

I have mini Tweezermans in my car, my makeup purse and my work desk and three full size tweezers at home, yet still manage to be without at critical times.

Luck you those of you that can count them.

Especially if you knit a warm jumper for the winter out of them.

* has knitted several, plus matching gloves and hat *

I omitted to mention their cousins from the south - Nipple Hairs.

Which seem to be worse for suddenly sprouting up on you.

I also like to have a merciless deforestation of my lustrous Vegas Elvis sideburns. Uhthankyaverymuch.

morethanpotatoprints Wed 07-Jan-15 22:29:38

I have lots of different sizes, even some thin pointy ones for getting difficult ones.
You are extremely lucky if you can count them although keeping on top of them usually means under 20 a day.
Has anybody got any tips for those that are tiny and always there when you have somewhere to go?
Does anybody know a good make up to cover the tiny ones that look like black heads?

I wish I only had six... I have to remind myself not to do it in public.
