Everyone has face fuzz, though it definitely becomes more prominent as you get older. Then there are the [bad word] black hairs and white hairs that start to pop up.

If you're saying you have solid, dark facial hair, like a beard, you should see your doctor about a hormone imbalance. If you just have fuzz, I swear it looks 100 times worse to you than it does to anyone else. We tend to be looking at it right up close in the mirror, but if you're talking to someone they're at least a foot away, or more, and the hair isn't as noticeable.

I've used the cream removers and they are OK, but they tended to irritate my skin. Now I wax with Surgiwax Brazilian Bikini Wax. It is easy to use and gentle on the skin and the hair doesn't have to be real long. I have been known to shave in desperate situations, when I am going somewhere special and have forgotten to wax or have just run out of time. I read that it's not uncommon for models' faces to be shaved for close-up photo shoots and that it was OK to do as long as it was just once in a while. I feel like a total idiot when I do it, though.

For occasional use, there is also a product called "Tinkle", a kind of little mini shaver. It's about pencil length and the razor head is shaped like an eyebrow comb. I've seen them in beauty product stores. It's good for quick touchups on, say, the lipline.

I pretty much have to pluck daily for the thick black & white hairs, though I think the waxing has lessened the frequency of their appearances.

I have to say that facial hair really, really sucks! I come from a family where the men look like Yeti, so I guess I'm glad I don't look like one, too. Laser removal, even with financing, is absolutely not in my budget range right now, nor is it likely to be at any time in the future. And my skin type is supposedly not a good one for that kind of treatment anyway, too much risk of scarring.

Hope you find something that works out for you.

Thanks for the reply! My hair is more like fuzz - or at least used to look like fuzz. I think that ever since I have started removing it is has become more coarse in some areas.

It's O.K. for the most part- of course, no woman can stand facial hair regardless of how little it is. My sideburns are the worst.

My gynecologist determined it was no big deal...

Thanks for all your advice.
