Bloody chin hairs. Face lights?

I pluck my beard currently. The light in our bathroom is not great which results in a horrible shock on a sunny day when i look in my car vanity mirror.

Anyone got a good light or mirror with lights that shines as bright as day?!

Tweezerman do a magnifying mirror with a little light attached. It's horrifying but effective. I shave mine now. It's been a revelation

I get my face waxed monthly - lady threads the chin and under chin hairs because they're too strong to be waxed off blush. I've found that really works. Hair growth has slowed over time

Not sure I can bear discussing my beard in an actual shop. I will have a look at the Tweezerman mirror - thanks!

I use a torch and magnifying mirror.... The horror of how many I miss when I try and pluck without my little torch.... shudders

You need an LED torch or light, and a magnifying mirror.

Electrolysis is ideal ,particularly for those very strong hairs. It's relatively expensive, but well worth it imo.

I just use the torch on my phone and a magnifying mirror.

I use a depilator which includes a good light (not that you really need it, because the depilator will seldom miss a hair anyway).

Highly recommended - very quick and efficient. Hurts a lot the first time and much less thereafter. If you're tweezing anyway, then that's not exactly pain-free either.

OK I'm going in with my phone torch - wish me luck
