I’ve struggled with finding the best peach fuzz removal tool for as long as I can remember. In fact, I will forever recall the exact moment when I learned that my facial hair was a less than ideal feature for a girl. Of course, it was my junior high boyfriend who brought it to my attention during a make-out sesh. Talk about being mortified.
From that point on, I vowed to make facial hair removal a priority. Well, at least getting rid of my upper lip hair anyway. It wasn’t until a few years ago that the rest of the peach fuzz on my face was lovingly addressed by another boyfriend. Some guys are just great, aren’t they?
Unfortunately, my story of humiliation isn’t unique to just me. I know plenty of women who share a similar experience of facial hair embarrassment. And like a lot of you, I’ve searched for years to find a product that would remove the hair from my face safely and efficiently all while leaving my skin baby soft. And I’m ecstatic to say that I’ve finally discovered it.
Even better, I’ve never felt this confident in my entire life. It’s a fantastic feeling when you can be close to people and not worry if they’re staring at the hair on your face. So, what is this best peach fuzz removal tool that I speak of?
A tinkle razor.
Now don’t freak out. I know you’ve heard the myths about shaving. In fact, we’ve been inundated with them since we were little girls. And, frankly, I was terrified to try facial shaving in the beginning too. But, it works. And you won’t get a beard or make your peach fuzz dark either.
Before I get into the shaving details though, let me try to ease your mind by revisiting these shaving myths and dispelling them once and for all. I’ll also share with you the benefits of using a razor and how to use my holy grail peach fuzz removal tool.
Myth #1: Shaving Will Cause Hair To Grow Back Darker
This myth is absolute rubbish. Shaving doesn’t change the color of hair. For example, if you have blonde peach fuzz on your face and you shave it, the hair will grow back the same color – blonde.
To explain further, pick any body part with hair on it. Let’s say you choose your legs. If you have blonde leg hair then shaving them won’t change the hair color. The hair on your legs will still grow back blonde. But, if you have dark hair there, then the hair will inevitably grow back dark. Make sense?
Myth #2: Shaving Causes Hair To Grow Back Thicker
A lot of people believe that shaving will cause facial hair to grow back coarser. It doesn’t. However, shaving does cut the hair bluntly causing the hair to feel thicker even though it’s not.
So, if you were to rub your hands across your face a few days after shaving, you might notice the feeling of a little stubble. And although you may be convinced that your hair is now coarser, the thickness of each hair never actually changes. It’s only the blunt cut that gives the perception of a texture change.
Now I get that some women may not want to feel like they have stubble, but hear me out. It’s not that noticeable and, in my opinion, the benefits of using this peach fuzz removal tool greatly outweigh this minor concern. In fact, when I’ve used Nair for facial hair removal in the past, my upper lip felt a lot more stubbly than shaving with the Tinkle razor ever has.
Benefits Of Shaving
Obviously, the primary benefit of shaving is getting rid of any and all peach fuzz on your face. What I found most shocking though was just how much hair there was hiding on my face.
There’s another benefit to shaving that not many people know about. And it’s a pretty fabulous one if you ask me. Even if I didn’t have peach fuzz, I would still shave my face for this anti-aging benefit alone.
Have you ever noticed that guys’ skin stays looking younger longer than women’s? Sure, their skin is a bit thicker than ours, but they are also doing something almost every day that helps to slow down their skin’s aging process. And that something is manual exfoliation with a razor.
Exfoliation is the key to slowing down the aging process. When we’re young, we don’t have to worry so much about exfoliating because our skin naturally goes through a cellular renewal process. Unfortunately, as we age, this process slows down leading to lack-luster skin and even wrinkles. Exfoliation helps to speed up the process again by sloughing off those dead skin cells, leaving our skin more radiant and youthful looking.
Scientifically speaking, exfoliation helps to stimulate collagen production by creating a mild trauma to the skin. These traumas force your cells to begin a wound healing process resulting in increased collagen production and ultimately younger-looking skin.
I cringe when I think about how often I used Nair to eliminate the peach fuzz on my upper lip. I never dared try it on any other part of my face as I wasn’t thrilled with the results.
It left my upper lip feeling rough and didn’t even get rid of all the hair in one application. Not only that but my skin was starting to look bad too. And I’m sure applying a chemical to my face each week wasn’t the smartest idea.
Better Make-up Application
Can I just say that my foundation looks bomb? I had no clue how much peach fuzz impacts the look of make-up. Having a hair-free palette to work with helps your foundation to go on smoother, last longer and creates a more flawless finish.
The Best Peach Fuzz Removal Tool
As I touched on above, I’m not just using any razor. I definitely would feel funny about slapping on some shaving cream and taking a Venus razor to my face. Instead, I buy Tinkle razors. I get these babies on Amazon as you can buy in bulk at an inexpensive price.
For instance, you can get a pack of six blades for less than $5. And although they’re branded as eyebrow razors, they work anywhere on your face. Plus, they’re great for eyebrows too because you can get an excellent shape without fear of over-plucking.
And, what’s even better is that these razors are discreet. If anyone sees the packaging, they’ll assume they’re for your eyebrows. No one will ever guess they’re for facial shaving.
Of course, there are other facial razors at higher price points sold at luxury department stores. I haven’t felt the need to try these though because the Tinkle brand razors work so well.
How To Remove Peach Fuzz From Face
There are a few steps you’ll want to follow to get the perfect shave with the Tinkle peach fuzz removal tool.
You’ll want to start by holding your Tinkle razor at a 45-degree angle. With short and gentle strokes, move along your cheeks, jawline, chin and upper lip areas. You can also run the razor over your neck as well.
If you don’t get a perfect 45-degree angle, don’t worry. I’ve never actually cut myself using the Tinkle. As long as you’re removing hair that’s all that matters. You can quickly tell if you’re getting rid of hairs as you can see them collecting along the blade.
Shave In The Direction Of Hair Growth
For the most part, I shave in the direction of the hair growth, but sometimes I go over my upper lip in multiple directions for an ultra-smooth finish. It’s also beneficial to gently hold your skin taut as you move around your face. This technique helps to get most of the hairs on the first pass.
Additionally, I like to go over my forehead for exfoliation purposes too even though I don’t have any hair here. Just be careful when you’re near your eyebrows or close to your hairline. Go slow around these areas, so you don’t accidentally remove any hairs you want to keep.
For the smoothest shave, apply some coconut oil or lotion to your face and wipe off the razor with each stroke.
If it’s your first time shaving your face, I recommend starting with dry, clean skin. Wait about a week to see how your skin reacts before adding any moisturizing products.
If you’re still nervous about facial shaving, do a test area before using the peach fuzz removal tool on your whole face.
I had every intention of doing a test area and then waiting a week to see how the grow-out was. But once I started, I couldn’t stop. It was that satisfying. I couldn’t believe how smooth and beautiful my skin looked. There was no way I was going to wait a week after I saw the results.
How Often To Use Your Peach Fuzz Removal Tool
You’ll probably only need to use your Tinkle razor two times a week. I only shave once a week though, so it’s just a matter of personal preference. The more times you use your razor, the less you’ll notice any potential stubble, and you’ll get all those fantastic anti-aging benefits too.
It doesn’t take long to shave either. In fact, it can be done in five minutes or less.
And, Lastly, A Thank You…
It wasn’t until I saw Michelle Money from The Bachelor franchise tell the world that she shaves her face that I was willing to try it. Here’s a woman that’s on camera in high definition no less, and her face looks fantastic! That right there was enough for me to take the plunge. So thank you, Michelle Money, for giving me such a wonderful gift. I hope you find that the Tinkle becomes your go-to peach fuzz removal tool too.
