Help me. I've started getting a bit of a 'tache. It's getting noticeable. I'm not a make up wearer and not big on a regime. I do cleanse, moisturise etc but this has floored me. What's the best/easiest way to get rid of it?
I've just developed a bit of a moustache (although dp tells me I'm imagining it) and bought some Immac stuff. It's okay - was at least a month before I needed to repeat apply (only used twice, so far).
Depending on your skin tone, could you bleach? Obviously wouldn't work if you're darker skinned, for example Asian, but if you're white, bleaching the hairs white basically makes them disappear against the skin. Much less hassle than waxing/threading, and cheaper too! Just pick up a tub of Jolen.
I bleached when I was a teen. Went from dark to bright ginger. I've splashed out on laser removal, as I'm fair skinned with dark hair. I've previously waxed. Don't touch the area for several hours after though, or you'll develop a rash/ spots. And don't do it before going somewhere important in case your top lip turns red😱
I've been using a combination of Jolen bleach and plucking stragglers with tweezers.... Works fine for me, I have dark hair and pale skin which tans easily and I don't get an obvious pale line along my top lip in the summer thank goodness!
