Are you ever skeptical when you see a product on TV that claims to work really well? I know when I see products on TV, I am interested in trying them, but don’t necessarily want to shell out the money to buy it…especially if it’s not guaranteed that it will work. There’s a store called Showcase that has As Seen On TV products and I decided to make an account because they sell Morphe products which I want to try. I got an email that advertised the Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover and was interested by the claims that it gets rid of facial hair without pain, nicks, redness or irritation. I also received a bonus called the Satin Finish. It’s supposed to gently exfoliate and buff away unwanted hair. It’s like a very fine sandpaper, I tried it and it didn’t really work to remove any hair, but it did exfoliate and made my skin feel smoother.
The new gold standard in facial hair removal from Finishing Touch. From the world’s #1 facial hair remover for women comes Flawless – a revolutionary new device that erases facial hair instantly and painlessly. Recommended by dermatologists, the 18K gold-plated head is hypoallergenic and gentle on all skin types with a built-in light so you never miss a hair! No nicks, redness, or irritation.
The ways I usually get rid of facial hair is tweezing or waxing. Just last year, I got those portable razors from Muji and I started using them to get rid of the peach fuzz. They are amazing, my skin is super smooth after using it and I don’t get any redness like I do after tweezing or waxing. The only thing I don’t like about using the portable razor is that it’s kind of dangerous if you don’t do it at the right angle, I accidentally nicked myself once. Also, I’m always worried that someone will scare me and I’ll jump and cut myself. If you plan to buy the razors, the best way is to do it dry and use your other hand to keep your skin taut.
It’s hard to take a close up picture to show you how well it removed the peach fuzz on my face, but I took before and after pictures of some hairs on my hand. Even though the hairs on my hand are coarser than the peach fuzz, you can see how well the Flawless Hair Remover works.
I like that the Flawless Hair Remover has no sharp edges and that I could easily get the hairs near my eyes without having to pluck them. It reminds me of a sweater defuzzer because it has a razor that cuts the hair, but it’s safe to touch the head without cutting your finger. The light that comes with it is quite useful, it’s easier to see the hairs you’ve missed. It uses a single AA battery so you don’t have to go out and buy AAA or some specialized batteries for it. The head twists off and you clean the inside with the brush that comes with it. The company says it’s like a fancy lipstick, but it’s a bit bigger than a lipstick.
I give it a 4/5 because it works well and removes the hair without pain or irritation like it claims. I docked a point because it’s quite expensive and then you have to buy replacement heads after a few months.
Thoughts: I think the portable razor does a better job of making my face feel smoother and it’s a lot cheaper than the Flawless Hair Remover. The Flawless is TSA-friendly whereas a razor would be considered a weapon, so it’s good for travel.
