    I think this product is amazing. Completely transformed my life. I am finally free of facial hair. Gone. I read somewhere that 5% of users have complete loss of facial hair. 30% have significant results. 30% have minor results. 25% have no results at all.

    It works!! I have had facial hair since my 20's, am now 70, and finally something that works. I just don't get it close to the hair on my head so no problems. Even if I did it would be worth it.

And before I start my review, I do ... Show Full Comment
