Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

prod_1188548_xl_2It’s Favorites Friday!!

Ladies, let’s talk about our facial hair – REMOVING IT!  I’d managed to go 45 years without removing the fine blonde peach fuzz on my chin and cheeks, but finally decided I’d be willing to test out Avon’s Skin So Soft Fresh & Smooth Sensitive Skin Facial Hair Removal Cream since I’d had so many people ask me about it.  I noticed the fuzz when applying foundation/powder – it would cake on the hairs and I hated that. Probably nobody else noticed, but I did…

It. Is. The. Bomb. And it is the easiest stuff to use – lather a thick coat of it on the hair you want removed, let it sit for 2-1/2 to 8 minutes (3-1/2 minutes worked like a charm for me), then wipe it off with a lukewarm washcloth. My face was baby butt smooth and I haven’t ever dealt with any irritation or breakouts from it either!  It truly was easy and I was shocked I didn’t have a reaction at all to it – my face always breaks out when I use new products! ::whoop, whoop::

The hair tends to start growing back in about a week later and, for those of you who are fearful, the hairs are still blond and fine. The “stubble” isn’t like a man’s face at all – it’s soft.  All those old wives’ tales have been proven dead wrong!

    This seems like such a cool product. I do laser hair removal. I go for a treatment once every quarter. 😃

      Laser hair removal – you’re so fancy! 😉 Seriously though, isn’t it painful and spendy?

        I love your word “spendy” 😃… Painful? No. Spendy? Not really.

        I go to a reasonably priced esthetician in Brooklyn. The Manhattan estheticians in and around my office are spendy but the Brooklyn ones not so much. Plus I go once every 3 months so it works out quite well.

          Is spendy not a common term on the east coast?

          How long does a treatment take to receive?

            No, it’s not. First and only time I ever heard it is from you.

            It depends on what I’m doing. If I get the works, leg, bikini, armpit, chin; it takes an hour and a half.

            If I do chin and armpit only – I get lazy in the Winter and leave out the legs and other areas – just a half hour.

              Interesting – must be a west coast term. It’s common here. When Aaron and I were dating cross-country, we were both charmed by regional terms and sayings that we each used. Every once in awhile we’ll bust out an oldie but goodie that gets the other giggling.

              So it is a time commitment though, if you only have to do it 4 times per year, it’s still a total time savings.

              I’ve heard from others that it was painful. While I’m no precious flower, I also don’t relish undergoing painful beauty activities. This is why I only got waxed a handful of times before calling it quits and breaking out the razor.

                I absolutely detest waxing…Waaaay too painful. Laser treatments minuscule discomfort, if any, is nothing compared to waxing.

                I didn’t quite get what you were saying about the “time commitment” of my laser treatment. Are you saying spending an hour and a half on the treatment once every 4 months is too much time?

                  No, weighing between the two. It’s a single heavy time commitment once per quarter versus a smaller time commitment every day or so. Comparing the two, the laser treatments would be a net time savings.
