Please come and share your 'tash removal secrets. I have always been a fan of boots own brand facial hair removing cream but suddenly it brings me out in big red blotches. So does nair.

It would appear I need a new hair removal method. Does anyone wax/thread? Is it more or less painful than eyebrows?

Threading is the best. I've had everything over the years, including laser and electrolysis.

If you use a dab of baby oil all over the skin, it makes the threading much less painful. Be sure to wipe off the oil afterwards - you don't want spots where your tash used to be!

I have just mastered the art of threading and it is super easy, practically pain free and super quick.

I started a thread a few weeks ago - will try and find a link.

I use veet wax strips for face. Very simple, quick and easy (compared to bleach). Works better if you level the area with your tongue, as they have you do when threading.

I bit the bullet and tried waxing with veet y-day for the first time. Bloody fantastic. Thank you.

Thomas & Blahbal - I would love be able to thread my own eyebrows though. I tried with normal thread, but it didn't pick up any hairs. Do you have special thread or a special technique?

I use my epilator, 7681 Legs, Body & Face Wet&Dry

I put a little face wash on and do it in the shower, so it hardly hurts.
