Shock

I think it's a side effect of the mirena but I don't want to have it taken out as it's perfect in every other way.

Do I wax? Confused

Is it thick and dark or fine and fair?

dh bought me a facial waxing kit and a facial veet type thing. The wax worked but was a little painful (brought a tear to my eye!). It was easy to use and the strips are washable and reusable. He got them from Tesco

I might have been offended if he just decided to get them for me on the spur of the moment!

I would say waxing too - but for God sake don't wax your face at home!!

Go somewhere and get it done properly. I have it done once a month or so for a fiver at a local salon.

Doesn't hurt too much Grin

No no no, don't wax, try threading. Much kinder to your skin...

It's sore, but over v quickly and doesn't leave you with a cat's bum mouth. Couple of minutes of twizzling- job done!

It's how I dispatch mine...

Any chance of cultivating some nice side whiskers to match?

Threading.

Am dark haired but fair skin.

Threading hurts like (I was going to say buggery, but its not Friday :) )

But some Bingela about 10-15 minutes before works a treat, and Threading is the only thing that doesn't leave a bright red mark for abpur 10 days like a flashing sign saying
