Guide Review - R.E.M. Spring

I received my usual monthly package of hair removal products. Once again, I pulled out what looked like medieval torture device.

Coil Hair Removers- Not All the Same

The last coil hair remover, Epicare, wasn't too bad, so this one should be okay. It looked like a long coil with two handles. It was a bit different than Epicare though. R.E.M. has heavier handles and feels more substantial. It's also sleeker and more futuristic looking. Let's hope it works as well.

Painful…at First

The directions are very simple and to the point. Bend the spring, twist and viola! So I went for it and sprung my unwanted hair right off my whole face. I have to admit that at first, it did hurt a little. As I got more proficient with the tool, it became faster and easier to remove the hair. The most important thing was that it got less painful as I went.

Practice Makes Perfect

I am sure I was not doing it quite right on my first hair removal twists. Only in the area that I started in did I notice redness and a couple of red bumps. The other areas of my face didn't have any irritation.

Follow Directions

As with other similar coil hair removers, the R.E.M. Spring should only be used on a woman's face, like the cheeks, lip area, side burn and neck areas. Do not try this on around your eyebrows or you could end up with more than just uneven brows, but a big spotty mess.
