Threading.. I thought it was great till you realize you are in the middle of a mall or salon with people walking by staring..awkward for me.
This tool has been the answer for me..no appt..can do it whenever I need in the privacy of my own home. Slight irritation but no full breakouts as experienced with threading. It is painful but you get used to it (my face goes numbs after a few minutes).
Try after warm shower ..I suppose pores are open and it seemed easier to handle discomfort. Work quickly (do not roll it slowly as it hurts more) and splash face with cool water after..this has minimized irritation for me.
