Facial fuzz - to remove or not?

Posted , 5 users are following.

So one of the most obvious signs of being someone 'of a certain age' for me is the gradual (over the last 2 years or so) increase in the amount of facial hair I've developed 😔 Thankfully the majority of it is very blonde (apart from the random dark ones that appear from nowhere overnight and are suddenly 2 inches long!!!!). I've always had a very fine covering and have had to deal with the upper lip situation since being a teenager, but I now have a very obvious (to me anyway) thick covering of blonde hair in the beard area. Hubby says it isn't noticeable (but then he has been on the receiving end of more than one hormonal rage in recent years so you can't blame him for perhaps being wary of telling me like it is).

My questions to you lovely ladies are:

  1. When does 'peach fuzz' become too much and needs to be dealt with?
  2. How do you deal with yours (if you need to)?

I've looked at the Flawless Finish type thing, the No No, the diy scalpel type razors, waxing, threading and dermaplaning. The first three I don't fancy the stubbly regrowth. Don't think I could handle the pain of a full face wax or threading (getting the top lip waxed in bad enough!!) and dermaplaning is just an expensive version of the first three.

So do I just accept it and count my blessings its blonde, or grit my teeth and find time to defuzz every few days to get rid of the stubble?

    You totally just described me LOL! My upper lip and chin is still ok but the beard/sideburn area grew in so fast! I've always had that baby fine blonde peach fuzz but one day about a month ago I glimpsed it (I don't wear makeup so didn't notice it). I use the flawless beauty to get rid of it. It really does work and I do it about once a week.

    Good luck with whatever you decide!

      It's not as noticeable as the long thicker stuff I shaved off to begin with. I can feel the stubble but it's not like leg stubble, it's much softer. Mine is very blonde so I have to tilt my head just right to see it in the light. My other half says he never noticed it in the first place, not sure how he could have missed it, I seriously could have braided it! It doesn't come in darker or thicker, for me anyway, with the flawless beauty. It's just annoying to even have to do it...

    Yes I have the fuzz.. And every now and then I get 2 long dark ones that my son points out.. But I did buy something on the home shopping channel to buzz off the peach fuzz cuz if I look at myself in the mirror with the light shining in-- OMGosh. Just something else to keep up with.
