It took me a very long time to get the dangle of it – and I’ve discovered NOT to do above my lip or it feels prickly and weird- however I feel I lastly bought it. It’s SO satisfying to get all of the lil peach fuzzies off my face.
Once I get round to it (each few months as much as yearly):
Facial with charcoal cleanse and turmeric therapy. I not too long ago bought a facial after it had been over a 12 months, and determined I might make it part of my quarterly routine.
