I am a Gorilla I have fur

(13 Posts)

I don't have a moustache or anything simple, I have furry fluff on my neck and onto my jaw. I always have it and it is not that noticeable (is blonde despite me being dark) but when pregnant it grows in spirals all over me and is excessive.

The area is too big to thread or wax I think.

Any tips on how to deal with this?

You could use the hair removal cream that's for facial hair? It works well ime.
However, are you sure it is actually noticable? I removed my 'moustache' for years ubtil a beauty therapist lady told me I was wasting my time as it wasn't visible.

Can you get that stuff for your face? Like immac?

If it's safe in pregnancy I will try it.

I can grab little tufts of it and exdp keeps pointing it out because it is a good way of diverting attention from his own inadequacies, which in his case extend beyond the easthetic. No friends have mentioned...hmm

Yep, like Immac.
I used to use a Boots brand one. It was pretty good.

My dh likes to pick my spots. Charming, aren't they. hmm

...and lol at going beyond aesthetic. grin

Oh, not sure about pregnancy.
Probalby absolutely fine, but I'm sure it's plastered all over it anyway.

I got an epicare hair removal wand thing recently....and it does work...and is not too painful. might be worth a go?

Sago, like this?

Looks nifty. How much pain are we talking? I can cope with threading.

nickytt, he is BALD, need I say more?!

Ah, bald.
Jealousy on his part methinks.
(or is it envy?)

I`ve also used the Epicare threader and love it! Found it through a magazine a couple of years ago and been using it ever since.

I have really dark hair and to say it was really noticable is an understatement!!... been using it for around two years and it`s the best thing ever.grin

Would definitely give it a try hobbgoblin and if you get it from the official site epicare if your not happy with it you receive a refund.

yes, that is what I meant. like JustBe said it is great....level of pain? i would say like using tweezers on eyebrows for me...hard to quantify pain but as you can do a little at a time (ie, no need to melt wax and do it in one go, or get the cream all over etc) you can pace yourself.

Threading is fantastic for large areas of the face.
