This is a sponsored, product-provided conversation that contains affiliate links. I received the Jolen™ products for my own personal use. All opinions, text and unwanted facial hair are (sometimes unfortunately!) my own.
It’s not always the most popular subject to talk about, but hey, I’m all about keeping it real here. We’ve all got unwanted hair. Unfortunately some of that hair is on our face. Chin, mustache, eye brows… I mean let’s face it – no one looks good in a unibrow! And I am a firm believer that part of our personal upkeep should definitely include trimming, waxing, bleaching and removing. Let me tell you a little story.
When I was in college I was in love with this guy. You might know him from this story. We were finally dating and I was so happy to be his girlfriend. We were supposed to go on a date one night and I had a little dilemma. I needed to take care of my upper lip situation (i.e. hair removal) and it was that or be late to the date. Well, I was smitten so I chose (probably unwisely) to just rush and get ready for the date. Well, that night we were talking and I don’t even know how, but the upper lip situation came up. I think he tried to politely say something like “Girl, you need to take care of that!” or something along those lines. I was mortified.
I left him in tears so embarrassed, but as I thought about it, I couldn’t really be mad at him. He didn’t actually say anything mean and it’s really understandable for a boy to not want his girlfriend to have a mustache. Now, don’t get me wrong, we’re not going to be perfect in front of our significant others all the time, but I do think it’s important to take care of ourselves to remain attractive to that person. That includes weight, fitness, beauty, hair removal, all of it. Once again – not perfect, but at least work to be attractive. I know my husband appreciates it and has never again said anything about said upper lip situation.
So how do we do it? How do we stay groomed without spending a ton of money in the salon every month? I’ve gotcha covered.
Removing unwanted facial hair
When I was younger, I didn’t feel the need to get rid of the hair entirely, I used to bleach my upper lip hair. Then when it was a little too much (I’m mostly Italian, what can I say?!) I did feel the need to remove it so I started with hair removal. I didn’t want to shave my upper lip because I didn’t want to feel too much like a dude, and waxing gives me little zits, so cream removal it is!
I recently tried Jolen Facial Hair Removal Kit and I can’t wait to share with you the results. I want to share what I look for in a hair removal kit and how you can make this work for you.
- Easy to apply – After all, you’re doing this at home. It should be easy, quick and painless! The Jolen Facial Hair Removal Kit has three products, that’s it! Protective cream, hair removal and wipes. It was so easy to apply (you’ll see below) and worked well!
- Doesn’t damage your skin – You don’t want to end up with burn marks on your face! Jolen Facial Hair Removal Kit has been tested by dermatologists and is perfect for all skin types.
- Afforable – if I wanted to pay a lot of money, I would go to the salon. You can find the Jolen kits online at Walgreens.com and drugstore.com or even at select ULTA stores for $11.99.
Okay, so how did I do? This wasn’t my first hair removal rodeo, and it all worked out perfectly! No upper-lip hair, no little zits from waxing and no husband trying to kindly hint to get my shizzz together! Wins all around!
It was really hard to get pictures of before and after because my hair wasn’t that bad. It needed to be dealt with but it wasn’t like “did she lose a bet?” kinda bad. So instead, I made a video of how it’s done so you guys can grab a kit and do it at home as well!
