I was recently given the chance to try the new Nads Facial Wand hair remover, and I was a bit nervous. Mostly because I had tried Nads before and it just didn’t work, and I’m always bummed when I have to report that something didn’t work. I’m also bummed because I have really thick, coarse hair which makes it difficult for anything like that to work well, but I’m relieved to report that the Facial Wand set worked like a charm.
With the basic good news out of the way, let’s get down to some details. The kit includes a slightly-larger-than-a-pencil wand applicator filled with the Nads product, a small pack of cloth strips, and a handful of cleaning wipes. The directions are straightforward enough: cleanse the area of the face you wish to remove hair, apply product in the direction of hair growth, apply cloth strip, hold the skin taut (very important in this process), and pull to remove strip quickly, in the opposite direction of hair growth.
A few things:
What is the main benefit of Nads over wax? It’s made out of sugar, and if you accidentally put it in the wrong spot, you don’t need to panic – simply wash it off with water and start again. You also don’t need oils afterwards to clean up any leftovers, as water will take care of it for you.
This is perfect to use on any area of the face : chin, eyebrows, upper lip, etc. and is very widely available at big boxes and drugstores. Expect to pay about $5.99, and this will last you about six months with moderate use.
