Most Helpful Positive Review Inexpensive & effective (with practice)
I'm a little surprised at all the negative reviews. It took a while, but by trial and error, I figured out that rolling it over my skin at about a 45-degree angle and not pressing too hard works well. Also, moisturizing my skin just before using it seems to help it grip the hairs a little better. It doesn't get all of the hairs, but I don't mind plucking the few stragglers.
Downside: it hurts, but not more than anything else I've tried that involves ripping hair out. YMMV, but while waxing and threading both cause painful red bumps on my skin that last about a week (using neosporin immediately after sometimes helps), this hair remover doesn't irritate my skin at all.
I would give it 5 stars if it were easier to get the hang of.
Most Helpful Critical Review Scared
Ok so maybe this was user error... so I hate to give a negative review but I followed the directions and did not have a great experience. I'm a super light skin light eyed person with tons of white/blonde body hair. It's pretty thick on my face and I never really worry about it but it's been annoying me lately with some makeup application. So I got this as it seems pretty simple. And it really is? I rolled it around on my face and could see and feel it pulling out the hairs. When I woke up the next morning though HOLY COW I was cooooovered in red bumps like tiny zits all the bet my face. I have really clear skin so this was a super shock to wake up to and this was the only variation in my routine. Maybe I'm silly and did something wrong but this is what happened to me
Reviewed by 104 customers It only removes the tiny hairs
Helen from Minnesota
I've been using tweezers to remove coarse hairs from my chin. I thought this would be quicker, more like threading. But it removed only the fine hairs, the ones that can stay. I'm returning this and will resume using tweezers until it's okay to see my esthetician without a mask.
I don't recommend. Doesn't work.

Used it was happy with the results. But the next day I had a million small pimples all over my face and my face hurts still. I don't know how to get rid of the millions of bumps any suggestions of what these bumps are and how to make them go away. It's been almost a week no sign of them leaving on their own. All are coming to white heads but not fast enough and I don't want to pop them. There are to many and I don't want the spots all over my face
Just a bit of advice
Heather from Grapevine
I thought it worked pretty good once you figure it out. It seems just like everyone else, there are multiple ways we are getting it to work. I think if you can't get to the salon for a wax this is the immediate backup.
*** Anyone that is complaining about breaking put or tiny zits*** That occurs when you remove hairs for the first time and have sensitive skin. It happens when you shave or wax and it's definitely not the tool. It's your pores and skin reacting to being pulled out.
One time use
Uber disappointed from Thurston, NE
Sure, it went pretty well the first, but don't plan on using it a second time. The spring coil thing gets all messed up from the rolling and it's toast after that.
Cheryl from Vernal, UT
I love this tool. While there is light to medium pain associated with this fast and easy process, it is definitely worth it.
gb from usa
tried this for smoother makeup application and it caused my face to break out for at least three days.
Nclsprks from Danville ok
Don't purchase. Absolute waste of money. It didn't remove not one hair. I threw it away
DON'T DO IT
Ty from Colorado
this caused an awful, awful breakout. just don't do it.
Katie from Oakland CA
I am not sure about how much facial hair this removed, but I definitely had a ton of small zits the next day.
does not take fine hair

don't waste your money it will not work on all hair
Good for quick epilation
lisapisa from Bremerton, WA
I like this handy little tool. Advise others to do this with a clean tool, on a very clean face and follow up with a good rinse to avoid whiteheads forming from micro-deposits of bacteria into the newly open follicle. I use a twist tie to push out the old hair from the lumen of the spring (the little black ends come out of the spring easily), then soak the epilator in alcohol first. Bacteria is a mortal enemy here, so limit it as much as possible. Only use an epilator (including waxing products) if you're willing to do this aseptic work or you'll really regret it.
Facial Hair remover
Ivette from Fayetteville, NC
It really works. Stings a little in the beginning but you get use to it.
It works just hurts 😂
Nelly from California
Love it! It works well but I'm use to plucking hairs I guess just kinda hurts...
Missy from Pennsylvania
First of all this is not for people who are not used to threading. This uses the same motion as that. It will cause you to be sensitive bc it pulls out hair different than waxing. But if you don't get a reaction to threading facial hair this is a great tool!!!
Do not buy if you have sensitive skin.
JJ from Santa Cruz
I was excited to use this product little did I know my skin was going to have a major reaction. I have acne in the first place but it's NEVER been like this before. I used the hair remover Sunday night and woke up to this Monday morning. I gave it a day to calm down even exfoliated and applied a mask. It's Tuesday night and this is what my skin looks like two nights after....
will be returning!!!
JB from Everett, wa
this does not work to remove facial hair! it does hurt and pull on the little hair's, but they are still left on your face and now you have redness it that area! Don't waste you $ on this!
I Bought for Myself, Then for Several Family & Friends
DarHat from Texas

VM from Austin, TX
Tried this and it did not work at all. Returned it.
Ehh, not really worth a try
Ver-ververver from Redwood City, CA
Have to clean frequently while using. I'm not a really hairy person and this just does so little.
No I wouldn't by this again. It didn't work for me.
Clindley from Harker Heights, TX
Kind of awkward to hold.
K from Co
I prefer this style to the hand rolly one
Shan O from California
This is a wonderful product for removal of facial hair! It is not without pain, though. You can expect the pain level to be about the same as hot wax. What I like is that you are not applying a chemical to your face. Also, this product will save you money and time. I was able to do my chin and upper lip in less than five minutes in my own bathroom!
I have very sensitive skin, so everything I've ever used has had some amount of pain and redness. I splashed some ice cold water on my face right after using this remover and it tamed my redness a bit.
you will break out.
Laurie 99 from SLC, UT
removing the hairs on your face will block your pores. the sebum travels up the hair shaft. No shaft, oil stays in pores. That is why everyone breaks out after using it. Your skin will feel SO soft. your makeup so smooth. moisturizer and serum absorb so well. Use a good acne treatment after you finish removing the hairs and it helps with the follow-up breakout.
If I could give zero stars, I would
Chris from Dallas, Texas
Sanitized it and washed my face, then used as directed. It hurt a little (expected) and left my face slightly irritated, but wonderfully smooth. The next day, my entire face was broken out with tiny white heads and red bumps/acne. I NEVER break out and this was the only new element in my skin care routine. I should not have gotten this and wish I had read the reviews. I'll embrace my peach fuzz from now on.
