From plucking and waxing away our eyebrows to slathering hair removal cream on our upper lips, it seems like the fairer sex spend far too much time dealing with unwanted facial hair. Not only is it a pain in the backside, but when you take into consideration the cost of upkeep, paying someone to rip the hair out of your face once a fortnight can set you back as much as £360 a year!
There has to be a better solution, right? There has to be some pain-free way to manage unwanted facial hair without breaking the bank! You may have noticed we're big fans of beauty gadgets, so we've gathered some of our favourite, tried-and-tested hi-tech devices that will work on a range of skin tones and suit any budget!
On-the-go hair removal
The Philips Precision Trimmer is a handbag-sized device that will help you get rid of unwanted facial hair immediately! It's perfect for taking care of stray hairs on your brow, upper lip and jaw line. It also comes with a mini pair of tweezers to tame unruly brows. It's completely pain-free, and although it won't offer permanent results, for this price it's worth keeping one in your makeup bag anyway, just in case!
Facial hair removal on a budget
The Silk'n Glide HPL Permanent Hair Removal device is one of our most competitively priced devices. For a mere £169 (and don't forget to factor in your 10% discount with code, AUTUMN10, for a limited time) you could be looking at permanently smooth skin all over your body. Not only is this device perfect for larger areas such as your legs, it's also suitable for use on delicate areas such as the face or bikini line. It's virtually pain-free and includes 50,000 pulses, meaning you'll probably never need to buy a replacement. Say goodbye to razors, waxing, hair removal cream, plucking and threading!
Precision Hair Removal
If you're only looking to remove unwanted facial hair, then the thought of using a light pulsing device with a large treatment area might make you nervous. It's understandable, which is why the Tria Hair Removal Laser Precision might just be the device for you. It's ergonomic device fits neatly in the palm of your hand, and when coupled with the precision treatment head, you'll be in complete control. The device uses the same light technology to zap the unwanted hair at the root and prevent re-growth.
Highly Recommended Hair Removal
Our next hair removal saviour is a highly popular choice, and an amazing 96% of users said they would recommend it to their friends – we like those kinds of numbers. The SmoothSkin Gold Permanent Hair Removal device not only looks amazing, but it offers amazing results, too! The device blasts the hair follicle with a wide spectrum of light to permanently remove hair at the root. To speed up the process, the device also uses a rolling function to treat larger areas and a stamp function for precision treatment.
Hair removal for all skin tones
Until now, anyone with darker skin has been left out of the at-home permanent hair removal club due to an annoying quirk in the way IPL and HPL lasers work. But not anymore. The iluminage Beauty TOUCH is the first of its kind to treat ALL skin tones and ALL hair colours. The device is also incredibly slick, and will leave you feeling like you're enjoying a high-end spa treatment from the comfort of your own home.
