Frugal Friday--Not By The Hair of My Chinny Chin Chin!

Remember when Rosie O’Donnell had her talk show? I will never forget her  showing a stray chin hair that she let grow so looong, she put a bead at the end of it! Gross! And we didn’t know she was gay?? Like most women our age, I have the occasional regular stray hairs on my chin. Since I went on hormone replacement therapy, I’ve noticed a few longer (gasp!) moustache hairs too. Bummer. I have friends who actually shave (not recommended), wax, pluck, and have had even splurged for electrolysis. Well, I’ve discovered a much better solution than all that fuss. Nair Precision Face & Upper Lip Hair Remover Kit. The kit comes with a tube of precision hair remover with a slanted tip and a tube of rebalancing moisturizer. It's as simple as 2 steps and takes only 5 minutes.

Step #1

Gently squeeze the hair remover cream in an even layer to cover the hair. Let sit for 5 minutes, you can leave on longer for stubborn thicker hair, but I didn’t even use the full 5 minutes. Gently remove the cream with a damp washcloth—DO NOT RUB—they mean it too! I rubbed on my upper lip before I read the directions (why do I always do that?) and it did irritate a bit afterward. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water, pat dry—no rubbing again.

Step #2

Apply moisturizer and massage into skin—the massage part is important.

No more unibrow, moustache or stray hairs. A perfectly smooth face for 6 bucks at your local drugstore!
