Takes a bit of working out technique wise, but the secret is to rotate/or twist the handle bits between finger and thumb as you move up skin.

Make sure you have a 'U' shape too.

I have never bothered about tash area, but the last few yrs, it has been getting more noticeable (early 40's).

I am a bit of a wimp pain wise and it does sting, but i like swearing!

I love mine; but recommend a glass of wine beforehand as it helps with the stinging. although it may leave a few stray hairs as you just don't care

Is it like a wire coil? I could make a bomb as I have loads of these from my jewellery making....

here is one, or a description of them.

mine was £1.65 including p+p from a company up North, and it has japanese instructions!

i don't care, it's fab. I have done my cheeks, (upper) my neck, my forehead. YES you have hairs you don't even know you have till the little bastard tool grabs em.

I got one for 54p from amazon! Free delivery! It's great for tache area

piratecat Wed 25-Jun-14 21:58:47

i have very sensitive getting a bit older saggy in places skin, and it was fine afterwards. I did put a little tea tree spray on my top lip though afterwards.

Quite a few vids on Youtube.

OOH and the great thing is holding it up you can see the hairs caught in it!!
Then you just pull the spring outwards and shake them off.

piratecat Wed 25-Jun-14 21:59:27

Scarlett, you win -what a bargain!

I can't believe I've not realised the solution to my bastard bristles has been right under my nose all these months....

Can you please link to the one you bought?

ScarlettDarling Wed 25-Jun-14 22:27:01

Can't do a link on my phone but look on amazon for 'epistick', they are so cheap. Mine came all the way from China, took about 3 weeks, but its great.

I just searched on eBay and thought it was like a battery operated stick thing shock buying one now! I get VERY hairy on the sides of my face - will this work for me? Or will that just be extremely painful? grin

i don't think would use it on my ankles. i can't even get my legs waxed. tried it once my god it hurt.
tbh it does hurt or prickle but it's effective and has made me laugh at myself wincing and swearing.grin

piratecat Wed 25-Jun-14 23:47:00

morethanpotatoprints Wed 25-Jun-14 23:48:19

I can't use mine, it bloody hurts too much, so its back to the cream for me sad

Coughle Thu 26-Jun-14 00:33:15

I got mine recently too, thanks to a recommendation on another thread! No more tache and sideburns - I feel like a new person.

Would they be any good for eyebrows?
