The search for the perfect hair removal method continues… I have tried just about every hair removal method you can think of from buffing to shaving, to lotions, and now I have decided to try this nifty little trimmer.
I remember when this came out several years ago, and I tried it back then, but somewhere along the line I believe it stopped working after I had to change the battery. It’s been quite a few years since then, but I found it pretty handy for my eyebrows when I didn’t have the patience to tweeze, or I didn’t have the money to get my eyebrows waxed.
The Finishing Touch it extremely easy to use, its painfree, and it’s very quick. Some of the new improvements since the older model, are a great addition. I love the lighted tip, which helps me to see any of my fine white hairs much easier as they light right up. The pivoting head is nice for getting at awkward angles, and with the decorative jewel at the end, it’s just a little prettier and stands out to me when I am looking for it in my bin of beauty products.
Since I have to wear glasses all the time, sometimes when I shave my legs or bikini line, I am not able to see well enough in the shower to tell if I missed any spots. So once my shower is done, if I find I did in fact miss some areas, this is a really great tool to touch up those spots without having to jump back in the shower. Another great thing I use my Finishing Touch for is the tops of my feet and toes. Some people might not realize they have hair there, but if my fine white hairs get too long it drives me crazy. Forget the nice pedicure I just gave myself, all I can think of is the hair… Especially when it’s glowing in the sunlight, or if I actually happen to be tan during the summer, I have light white hair, on tan skin, so then they really stand out. And because it’s such a small area, I would never consider shaving my toes, since my razor is just too big, and I run the risk of cutting myself.
On occasion, I find my finishing Touch to stop working, but it’s usually because it had too much hair in it. Simple solution is to take an old DRY toothbrush to it and brush out the tiny hairs. It’s always good as new after that…
I can’t help but think that I wished I had this when I was a teenager. I guess I didn’t have the best eyebrows or anything, and I was a little late to catch up on tweezing and waxing. I don’t even think I started waxing my eyebrows until about 4 ½ years ago. So I think this might be a great gift idea for teens just learning to primp and preen. I would definitely considering buying this product again, as in fact I already have, but I would also probably buy one for my daughter 10 years down the road.
