MySpringIt dupe, the EpiStick Facial Hair Remover Review

I realised I’ve not reviewed any beauty tools yet!

Partly because it’s kinda embarrassing… 

I’m sure most of you would have heard of MySpringIt. It is this spring thingy that claims to get all the fine facial hairs off…

So.. does it really work? Well, I’ve tried it and I’m telling you that it does!

It pulls up hairs from the root, which hurts a lot at first and then after awhile, you get used to it.

Avoid tugging too much at stubborn hairs- roll it gently up or down (I think outwards?) and if the hairs are not coming out, leave it and come back to it later.

I’ve inserted a video from Youtube to show you how it works. I was using it the wrong way (bending it back and forth, though that worked fine too) until I saw her video, so embarrassing omg. Hers is a dupe too, because no one would buy a spring THAT expensive. Like what, 20 USD? I might as well buy an awesome epilator!

Guess how much mine cost?

1 SGD. Like 0.80 USD!! Whahahahaha! Don’t believe me? I have a screenshot to prove it.

 In your face, everyone who’s ever bought the actual thing!

Unfortunately, this seller is all out of stock, but you can this at a similar price- 1.80 SGD from here. Oh gosh I sound like such a cheapskate. But hey, 80 cents can buy you a nice ice cream! Maybe those cheap Nestle kinds you see in those mini marts… or a roll of Mentos.

Oh oh and the MySpringIt website says you can use it for up to a year without replacement. Why would you need to replace it? Because the spring gets loose or something? *confused*

But I digress.

For people with sensitive skin, you may want to put a bit of baby powder before using this or aloe vera gel after, because like all hair removal methods that use pulling/ tugging, if you pull up your skin too much or too hard you start getiing little red bumps/ welts or even break out with tons of tiny pimples! 

I experienced the tiny red bumps when I tried to remove the baby hair around my upper chest and neck. My upper lip was fine, though.

It doesn’t seem to work much for leg hair or arm hair, but it works fine on your underarm hair. I thus concluded that this spring thingy works best on tiny short hairs, so maybe that’s why it didn’t work for the long hairs on my arm.

I think this entire post was full of TMI about my hair habits :X Speaking about these things are still kinda taboo in Singapore, y’know? 

Hope it helped, so my embarrassment would be worth it!
