Whats the best shaver and/or method of removing hair? Its so embarassing and I hate when I’m in public and people point it out.

So I pluck and shave. Ive tried many different methods for years including waxing, hair removers, bleaching, etc but it just never seemed like a proper method or comforting method. I pluck on one day and then I just shave for the days to follow (3-4 days) and then pluck again. Its tedious and not much of a solution but its what works for me. Im opting for laser once i save up, sighs. Also, i use an eyebrow shaver to shave the hair but you can use a regular razor too.

Yrs ago I tried laser hair removal on my upper lip and went thru over 75% of sessions and realized I was only seeing minimal decrease in the hair regrowth. And it was painful! Waste of time and money in my experience. So I just stick with waxing or the nair lip and face hair removal kits

For my eyebrows and upper lip area i do primarily waxing and then some tweezing in between and on my chin. I used to bleach the hair on my upper lip for years(my hair is very dark and thick) and also used to get the Nair face and lip hair removal kit for years and it worked great, inexpensive, Painless and one kit lasts thru several treatments and I had great results even with my hair being so dark and thick.
