Is Finishing Touch Flawless Hair Remover a yes or a no?

Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover touts itself as being the magic cure to rid women of facial hair. But is it all that it advertises itself to be? That depends on what you are looking for and what results you expect to see.

This $20 tool is actually one of those “seen on TV” products which I don’t always trust but I have a hair problem – either too much or too little – so I decided to see how this would fare with my facial hair.

What you receive in your box is the hair removal tool, directions, a AA battery, and a cleaning brush. What’s very cool about the hair removal tool is that it lights up so you can see what you’re doing a little easier.

The top of the Finishing Touch is similar to a men’s electric razor but much gentler. It’s round and when you turn it on it vibrates. To use work it in a circular motion around the parts of your face that you need to defuzz. A con for me is that I found this to be difficult to use in that circular motion, it didn’t swirl easily as it seemed to stick to my face. The most difficult area was my upper lip where it was almost impossible for me to use it in that way.

If you notice on the box it mainly talks about the finest hairs. That’s where the Finishing Touch shines – removing fine hairs, peach fuzz, on your face.

What it doesn’t remove well are what I call hormonal hairs, those hard ones that you suddenly feel or see on your skin and become completely self-conscious about. I found that it removes the peach fuzz beautifully and especially like it by my ears to remove the darker hair that grows there. What I didn’t find though is that it removed the thicker hair, whether white or dark, that are my biggest problem.

I have a hairy upper lip and chin area. The dermatologist recommended laser hair removal but I haven’t been successful with that nor could I tolerate electrolysis. So I pluck and shave those hairs. The problem with that is the regrowth which comes fast and furious. I can shave in the morning and see those little dark hairs on my chin by bedtime.

My face is very soft and and peach fuzz free after using this, I’ve been using it twice a week. But I still have to deal with my hormonal hair. It’s a pain and it bothers me to some extent which is why I bought Finishing Touch. I’ll continue on the same path using Finishing Touch Flawless Facial Hair Remover and continue with my tweezers and razor. It’s been a good buy, just not the cure to my dilemma.

Loving the Silk’n Flash & Go Hair Removal System

Silk'n Flash & Go Express Hair Removal
One month ago I started testing the Silk’n Flash & Go Express Hair Removal System ($200). I have been using it on my legs, underarms, and upper lip and I am happy to report that so far I have had absolutely terrific results.

You can read my full initial post HERE, but as a quick recap, the Silk’n Flash & Go Express Hair Removal System is an at-home light-based handheld device for permanent hair removal. The pulsed light effects hair follicles at the root. You use this on clean, shaved skin. After the first treatment, you see reduction in hair growth. You do a second treatment two weeks later, then a third treatment four weeks later, then another treatment every four weeks for another 7 or 8 times. This is an electrical system, so you don’t charge it – just plug it in and it’s ready to go. There are five different levels of treatment and I was able to use the highest level (level 5) on all areas without any discomfort from the get go. The pulse of light feels slightly warm, but it doesn’t hurt at all (and I am a real baby when it comes to pain levels) plus there is no scent of burnt hair.

I am extremely pleased with the progress so far. I did an initial treatment, then another one two weeks after, and I have two more weeks to go before my third treatment. Right now what I am experiencing is far less hair growth…in fact, I’ve gone from shaving every day to about every fourth day. Hair is more sparse and the growth process has really slowed down. Doing the treatments is super quick, easy, and completely painless. If I can get to the point where all I need is a touch up once a month…wow, I can’t even imagine how that awesome that would be.

Silk’n offers a challenge – if after 10 weeks you don’t find it better than shaving, they will refund your money AND buy you razors for a year. Right now I would say this is a challenge worth taking, although I am quite sure you will never need those razors! – Lisa

Beautiful hair is a much coveted thing…but not on your legs, upper lip, underarms, or – horrors! – back. I just received the Silk’n Flash & Go Express Hair Removal System ($200) to test and I am so glad to try it out for you! Actually, since I have tried many hair removal systems I talked my husband into also being a guinea pig for the cause. As the years have passed, the hair on the very top of his head has migrated to his back…and he’s not happy about it. Back hair is notoriously difficult to remove permanently, so it’s perfect for this trial of the Silk’n Flash & Go Express Hair Removal System.

I just completed my first treatment to these areas:  my lower legs, underarms, upper lip, and to my husband’s back. The Silk’n Flash & Go is an electrical system, so you don’t charge it – just plug it in and it’s ready to go. There are five different levels of treatment, and I was able to use the highest level (level 5) on all areas without any discomfort. The pulse of light feels slightly warm, but it doesn’t hurt at all (and I am a real baby when it comes to pain levels) plus there is no scent of burnt hair.

Does it work? Silk’n offers a challenge – if after 10 weeks you don’t find it better than shaving, they will refund your money AND buy you razors for a year. I will report back in four weeks, and then give an update every few months regarding the long-lasting results. I have high hopes…and so does the hubby. He hates that back hair and can’t wait for it to be gone forever.  Wish us luck!!  – Lisa
