I used to use jolene when I was younger too but it did look terrible when the sun shone on it! I usually get it threaded but have been using an epistick at the moment which works very well. They're only a £ or two so worth a try?

I'm older (40) so I wax at home using veet wax strips for sensitive skin. Having said that, I was around 17 when I first discovered waxing....When I was younger I used jolene bleach but always made my hair orange, so I wouldn't recommend that! Could you try threading if you dont want to wax?

I use a wee dermaplane blade on mine.

Exactly @Aaaahhhndrea trouble is now it looks like she's not washed and has a really dirty face shock I feel so sorry for her as I'm quite fair and have never had this problem

I also have one of those JML things and a DD with dark facial hair.

It's very hard. I don't want to comment negatively on her appearance but I also want to help confused

I’ve got one of these:

It’s effective at keeping mine at bay and very gentle- I’ve not had any irritation. I use it maybe twice a week but it can be used every day. I’ve tried waxing but that always caused me to break out and then you have to suffer the awkward regrowth stage.

Philips Lumea is another option but it’s super expensive.

My DD 12 has lovely dark hair and olive skin, however this also means she's got her Dad's moustache. It's really quite obvious and it makes her look like she's not washed her face. Add that to spots and starting secondary school she's getting quite paranoid about it. What's the best method to remove it. I didn't really want to encourage facial hair removal at such a young age but it's really bothering her and tbh it's quite obvious why. I'm bamboozeled with the amount of electronic devices and creams I'm not sure which would be best.
