There are many products that I get suckered into buying and are ultimately dissapointed in. It’s not that I’m a product junkie, I’m just always searching for that miracle product. That thing that actually does what it’s supposed to. How crazy of me, right?
But I kid you not…. this bad boy is legit. I found it at Ulta (where else…) and it took me a while to get used to, so I’ll hopefully save you that learning curve.
First things first. It looks like tar and makes you look like a lunatic. Proceed with caution when people are in the house. That being said- pain is beauty.. Is that the phrase? I don’t know. Anyway.
Here are a few of my rules for applying this little bottle of happiness without wanting to kill yourself (or someone else) when you start to take it off.
Rule #1 - Get a huge fat headband and make DAMN sure your itty bitty hairs are not in your face. I had to slick mine back with water. Probably could have done it after the shower in hindsight. If you don’t do this, you’ll pull your hair out. For reals. It’s so thick that you can’t shimmy them out. You’ll get stuck with black on your face and scissors in your hand contemplating cutting your baby hairs off. Trust me. It wasn’t pretty.
Rule #2- Apply a ton. It was very hard for me peel off in the thin areas. Second time around I applied a lot more and it wasted product, but it worked so much better.
Rule #3- Pull like a band-aid. Quick and over with. I’m not going to lie.. It kind of feels cool, kind of hurts like a… well you know. But when I prolonged it and stopped mid pull, it hurt worse. Take a deep breath and just do it.
Rule #4- Use a warm, damp washrag to get the remainder off. Don’t rub, though. Just press it to your face like they do in a facial. You know, since this whole process has been so relaxing, right?
There you go! Try it, I promise you will love it and be happy with the results. I just feel so clean afterwards. Probably because I’m ripping half my face off, but whatever works.
