Back in December 2013, I did a review on Epicare, a funny little apparatus that’s supposed to get rid of unwanted facial hair. Back then, I was apprehensive about trying it but chose to tackle the product despite my wobbly feelings about it. Thanks to NailPolishCanada.com, I was able to try out Epicare and I liked it. A month later, I’m here to report on my current feelings about Epicare which sadly, are a little mixed.
Product Review: What’s up with the mixed feelings about Epicare?
On the one hand, I do think Epicare effectively and quickly removes facial hair. I’ve been using Epicare for a good month and it’s been a breeze to roll that little spring dooda along my upper lip and poof, bye bye unwanted facial hair.
Are you ready for the but?
On the other hand, I’m not sure if it’s giving me more zits aka pimples aka frustration.
Why would I say that?
Well, for one. I’m not one for breakouts. Sure, I get the occasional zit here and there but that’s about it. Ever since I started using the Epicare above my upper lip I’ve surpassed my usual quota of pimples. I have no idea if it’s even remotely related to the Epicare but the timing of all those zitties above my upper lip makes me think otherwise. Either I’m using the Epicare incorrectly or it’s doing something to those little hair follicles of mine.
That seems to be my biggest peeve at the moment. I’ve been on the fence about it. Since I can’t make heads or tails of the situation, I’ve put a temporary stop to my use of the Epicare tool to see if the zitties stop showing themselves. I’m going to go back to my regular regime. If the zits don’t show themselves then that’ll further hint to me some sort of connect to the Epicare tool even if I don’t know what it is.
One more final issue that puts a ‘but’ into my brain about the Epicare tool – while it removes a whole lot of unwanted facial hair in one quick fell swoop, there are still a few that have to be removed manually. There’s a lot less to bother with but I still have to grab the tweezers to pull out what remains. Troublesome? Not overly but the Epicare isn’t doing the full clean sweep as I’d hoped. Again, could just be me but had to put it out there.
So, what does this put Epicare in my books? Honestly, I have no clue. There is no denying how much easier my daily hair removal regime has gotten. A few simple rolls and I’m done. Sure, there are a few stray stragglers that I personally remove with my trusty pair of tweezers but that’s nothing compared to what I used to do. On the other hand, I am now using more time to deal with hideous little zits that are in my range of view staring at me when I look at my reflection in the mirror. I’m not an overly vain person but I don’t need to have those pimples on my face.
Time will tell and I’ll be sure to update you all. In the meantime, it’s back to the basics for me.
