A woman who was taunted for her dark sideburns is now feeling more confident than ever after a hair removal tool fixed the problem.
Anna admitted that she would avoid wearing her hair in a ponytail because she was embarrassed about exposing her dark sideburns.
The 28-year-old, from west London, spent years waxing and threading before turning to pricy professional dermaplaning treatments.
But after finding it difficult to keep up with the procedures for financial reasons, Anna had to change her methods.
Now she praises the Hollywood Browzer tool for removing the “peach fuzz” from her face at home for a fraction of the prize.
Talking about the £8.95 gadget, Anna said: “It might sound silly but I’ve discovered a new inner confidence.
“Not having to worry about exposing my face is such a big relief to me, after all the years of being teased, I finally don’t feel ‘different’ or ‘hairy’.”
The Hollywood Browzer is a multi-functional, dermaplaning beauty tool which promises to leave skin flawless, fuzz-free and glowing with no pain or redness.
It’s super safe which can easily re-shape overgrown eyebrows, sideburns, beards and hairlines while removing any unwanted “fuzz”.
Anna said the skin on her face is prone to pigmentation and she didn’t want to risk scarring with a laser hair removal treatment.
She explained: “I’m half Italian and have naturally olive skin, which unfortunately comes with having a lot of dark hair on both my body and face.
“Over the years I have tried all the hair removal methods under the sun to try and keep myself hair free, even laser.
“I’ve always been super self-conscious of my sideburns and the hair on the side of my face, even from school I remember getting called a ‘gorilla’ once by a boy in my class.”
Despite friends and family reassuring her that the hair wasn’t as obvious, Anna still felt conscious about her face.
She continued: “Over the years I’ve tried waxing and threading, however I would often find myself having to go back every two weeks or so and the skin never felt fully smooth.”
“I first discovered ‘dermaplaning’ when I went to get an expensive facial as it was part of the treatment.
“I was absolutely amazed at how much of the peach fuzz came off my face when they started softly scraping away, it was more than I’d ever seen from a waxing or threading appointment.”
Now after spending less than a tenner on the device, Anna simply can’t recommend the Hollywood Browzer enough.
She added: “That was two years ago, and I’ve been using the tool ever since. I can’t recommend this product enough, to anyone who is self-conscious about their facial hair especially.
“Not only does it leave my skin fuzz-free but it also gives my skin an amazing exfoliation, scraping away the first dead layer of skin.
“I rarely suffer from breakouts anymore and I love the glow you are left with once you’ve used the Browzer across your face, you can really see the results instantly.”
