I'll look into the Bellable. Thanks!

I admit to keeping nail clippers in my car but not tweezers or an alcohol pad. I suppose that I should . . .

My chin hair detection tends to be tactile rather than visual. I check in the mirror every morning and all, but sometimes during the day I'll be idly touching my face (yeah I know, this is a major contributor probably to the adult acne I still have...but it's not terrible so I deal)...and I will feel the bristly course ones, and those are the ones that have to go! My adult acne tends to be more hormonal than anything anyways, and the tweezing has not increased it on my chin. I get the stupid ouchy ones on my neck and lower cheeks. Hormones tend to cause that.

I pay $99 for laser for 6 sessions. You go every 6 weeks or so. I think that's really reasonable, I was spending more money getting waxed.

Face hair is definitely a plague.

Ai yi yi yi... skip the wax. Just use a razor with a replaceable blade (like Venus, or a similar type). Regular disposable blades like pink razors probably will cause painful nicks. I use a Venus every morning on my upper lip fuzz. It shaves and works with the curves, not against them, so no nicks whatsoever. What the rest of the world doesn't know won't hurt them.

Waxing, I think, works well if it's a routine started young, when the hair first begins growing in... When the hair is softer and the roots aren't as deep... it prevents it from growing back... But starting it later in life is just a recipe for pain.

I didn't have this problem in my 20s and 30s. I think it started when I was about 45, so yeah, a later in life problem.

I'll look into laser treatments next month. Thanks for all of your replies!

Every lady I've ever known who uses a razor winds up with stubble. My hair where I do shave grows so fast that at the end of the same day I can look at my underarms and see the stubble starting beneath the skin. When I pull the hairs out, such as on my chin, I don't have this effect. I am not chancing it, my hairs are too course and thick and dark for the most part.

You know what's odd though? The thicker hairs don't hurt as much. It's when I get a hold of the finer ones and pull 'em out, THAT hurts.

They both hurt me, even with opening up my pores.

I guess I'm just a wuss. I get my brows waxed. Several quick pulls and it's over.
