What's the best way to get rid of them, without going to a salon? It's not too dark but it's noticeable enough to annoy me. When I wax I get little dotty spotty bits that annoy me!

Epistick £1 ebay

It hurts like fuck the first time but is fine after that

I've seen this, it does look like torture. Is it quick enough with it being painful?

Isn't that Epistick just a different way of whipping the hairs out by their roots?

Wax is exactly the same.

Think it is. Maybe I just need to up my technique or pay for someone to do ithmm

Shave. Doesn't cause the hair to grow back faster/thicker (that's a myth). That's what I do - think I actually got the tip from mumsnet in the first place.

Yes, shave it. Takes 10 seconds.

Pay a little eyebrow and facial hair trimmer. Quick, easy and no risk of soreness. They are great for eyebrows.

Yeh I shave. Tried everything first cause I was scared of ending up like magnum pi but it shaving doesn't make it grow back thicker.

2 seconds in the shower every night. I couldn't get on with anything else-wax left me sore as did hair removal creams.

I got myself an electric shaver.
doesn't irritate my skin like removal cream and is quick.

Why not the salon, OP ?

I get eyebrows, upper lip and chin waxed for £ 15 and it takes less than 10 minutes which includes walking upstairs, sitting down, etc. I don't need my whole chin waxed but it's cheaper to have the whole package and she just does the bottom of my chin where I get the odd 'old lady' hair. No faffing. I don't go very often but probably should !

I use an eyebrow razor.

It's great.

I'm not sure tbh, saying that I was going to start getting my eyebrows done again. I'm a bit lazy at plucking them!
Maybe I should just do it haha!
