It won't just rip out hair, but skin as well.

Dermaplaning is also an option - but even that is too involved for me!

Facial peach fuzz is everywhere and on females of all ages. I see it daily on TV as well as in person. Most women are either unaware of or are fine about their short, fine, blonde facial peach fuzz. I'm not! Ditto for the little blonde hairs on my arms. So I get rid of mine at home. For the record, shaving vellus hair does not magically transform it into terminal. It grows back a few weeks later just as it was before.

I watched a dermatologist being interviewed a few years ago on a talk show. A 20-something female from the audience asked if she recommended a razor to get rid of facial hair. She gave an emphatic, "Nooooo!" I leaned forward & braced myself for her expert medical reasoning as she continued. Here it was: "It's defeminizing!"

Sorry - going to need a better reason than that.
Before: Size 12 at 5'2".
After: 0-2.
Maintaing my ideal-weight goal consistently since late 2001.

I can't add the link but you can google it.
OK I am seriously about to buy this! I never heard of it before you mentioned it. It has a lot of good reviews on Amazon!
