Epistick Facial Hair Removal Review

Epistick Hair Removal Review

Ever heard of Epistick or Epicare or Epilator? well, they all have the same purpose: remove unwanted hair. I got the epistick on Ebay for less than $2. Pretty cool huh? hehe

The purpose of epistick is to remove facial hair on your chin, upper lip, forehead, and cheeks. The idea is very much similar to threading. It will remove hair from its root so when it grows back it will be thinner and less visible.
Epistick Epicare Epilator



To use the epistick, you bend the epistick into a U shape and place it on the hairs that you want to get rid of. Hold both ends of the epistick and twist it in opposite directions.
You will notice that the hairs will be trapped between the coiled spring.

And

voila:

Epistick Results Pictures
Look at all the little hairs trapped on my epistick! It took me several tries to get use to it! the result is amazing. This may seem a bit painful at first since you're pulling more than 1 hair at a time. But it will be better and it really work too!!!

Epistick Facial Hair Removal Review

I really like this. It makes removing facial hair so much quicker. Not sure about it growing back being thinner since this is the first time I tried it. But if you're used to plucking or threading your facial hairs then this is a very similar technique. Although, you shouldn't do this before you go out since it does cause a little redness. Get yourself one HERE.

*Something to keep in mind*
-It does hurts and will takes some time to get use to.
-There are certain areas on the face that's more difficult to reach and therefore the hair will not come off that easily. Such as, the area between your brows. This will take some time and practice. If you're not use to it, don't do it as you may accidentally take off your eyebrow hairs.
-It doesn't pinch MY FACE. I don't believe it's made to pinch your face even though it looks like it would.
-It's more painful when your hair is long. So if for some reason your hair is long, trim it off a little bit.

Here's a link to other reviews on Epicare which is an American version of Epistick. Very much similar just a little more expensive, I believe it's around $15-16:

  30. hehe it wouldn't be a waste if you can see results I guess. Right now my neck and face are not completely quite the same so it's really annoying, haha. And my arms, I give up on them, they tan so easily, I'm always getting a tshirt tan on my arm in the summer!
    It's amazing how many ads are about whitening products in asian magazines. Makes me really want to shop in Asia, hahaha :)

  37. I keep reading in places that since episticks are from China, they could be contaminated with dangerous and hazardous chemiclas. Is this true? i want one from eBay for a couple of dollars, but I'm scared. Nad the American versions are all 8 dollars and up...so I don't know.
