Nowadays, there are many methods of removing unwanted hair, from epilators to removal cream. Most women are most familiar with shaving, simply because it is the most widely-known way of hair grooming and by far the easiest. However, there are a lot of disadvantages in shaving. One is that the hair that grows back in the shaved area tends to become thicker the more you shave it. You also have to be careful as the razor used is sharp and can cause wounds which can then lead to awful-looking scars.
Ever since epilating has been introduced, shaving has become a second-option, sometimes third (second being the ever popular waxing). Simply put, epilating is more effective, more efficient, and a hair grooming method that keeps the epilated area smooth for up to 4 weeks. In this article, we’ll discuss the most common areas women shave and the best epilators specifically tailored for that body part. Many think that Epilators are just for women, but this is not true, many men have turned to this method to remove unsightly hair such as back and neck hair.
1) Upper Lip
It isn’t pretty. You call the hair in the upper lip a mustache. The urban term, though, is femstache which means a female mustache. This is very common and genetics plays a huge role in having a femstache. However, not all women groom it, especially those who have thin and almost unnoticeable femstache. For those who have thick hair in the upper lip, they want to get rid of it, but don’t want to shave it. I personally think all women who has a femstache wants to get rid of it but just doesn’t know how to since they don’t want to shave it and risk it growing back thicker.
Recommended Epilator: Bellabe
Easy-to-use, affordable, and no complicated techniques needed. It’s more like you’re just doing an exercise. Bellabe is made up of two plastic handles on both sides and a spring-like mechanism that connects the two handles. You make the spring expand by letting the two handles meet and making a horseshoe shape, you put it in the femstache area, and you twist it using your thumb. Make a few passes on the upper lip and voila! All of your femstache will have been taken away, even the thinnest ones. Plus, with this, you don’t need electricity or battery. Just a pair of talented hands.
99.99% of women I know don’t want any hair in their armpits. It just doesn’t look good. That’s all. Most women do shaving in this area and again, the hair grows back thicker. It also contributes to having dark underarms as the shaved area gets darker and darker the more you shave it.

The name sounds like it is going to be a cakewalk when you use this. I say differently. Most women who used it reviewed it as an epilator that’s initially painful to use and that will usually be the case for the first couple of sessions. But they also said, “The pain was worth it.” Results are astounding. No traces of hair will be found on your armpit and you will just need to repeat the process at least once a week to make sure no hair will be seen in your underarms.
