Facial Hair Wax Recommendations

I want to wax my upper lip. My skin is fairly sensitive and I am not sure which product would be best for this area and my skin type. Any recommendations?

If it is only that area, and you have never done it before, have you considered having it done professionally. It would not take much time at all, and not be very expensive. They will be experienced and you will be unlikely to see a bad outcome, compared to a home job.

Once you see how they do it, and if you ask what sort of wax they use, then you could consider doing it yourself in the future. For the small area you are talking about, you might want to be done with it once-and-for-all with some electrolysis.



I actually want to wax more than my upper lip (that is the area I am most concerned with sensitivity), but cannot afford to have it professionally done at the moment. I am saving up for electrolysis, but its going to be a long time before I can afford that, and I want to do something other than plucking (takes WAY too long) in the meantime. So, if anyone has any product recommendations for facial wax I would greatly appreciate it.

I have been waxing my face (once every few months) for a couple of years. I used to have a very thick and coarse beard.I estimate two thirds of my facial hair has stopped growing. Although that still leaves me with a significantly hairy face, the remaining hairs are less course and most of them have turned grey. There are small bare patches where no hair grows at all.

I use a hot wax called Andrea - its heated in its aluminum pot, applied, and removed directly, without cloth or paper strips. Do this in small strips which are not too wide - perhaps one to one and a half inches wide and 2 or 3 inches long.
As the mustache and lip areas are very sensitive, make sure that after the wax cools on your skin and BEFORE you remove it - gently curl back overlapping wax off your lip until it starts pulling the adjacent hairs, then you can rapidly remove the entire strip of wax. I do my mustache in 2 or 3 steps for each side as it is too difficult and painful to try and do an entire half at once. Make sure you stretch the skin tightly before removing. This requires waxing very small spots around the lips, i.e. 1/4 by 1/2 inch or so.


Did you know at any one time about %30 of your is in a dorment state and not growing?

i waxed my upper lip for the first time & used a microwavable type w/ musslin cloth & it riped my skin off in spots & now i have scars ( this happened 2 wks. ago) wasn’t worth it to me!


If this is the first time that you have ever waxed the reason you had such a bad experience is lack of experience.
This is the reason, everyone recommends to go to a professional at least once to learn the right techniques, of how to apply correctly, how warm the wax needs to be, the correct angle to remove, the correct time to remove wax, etc.
