gel-formula wax even beginners can successfully wax with thanks to its quick-drying, non-stick ingredients. The ultra-fluid gel "shrink wraps" around hair, meaning you can use it even if your hair is fine, coarse, long, or short. No more waiting until you're a forest before being able to wax!
This patented polymer formula is dermatologically tested with an anti-bacterial formula and safe to use on all skin types.
Promising review: "I first experienced Cirepil wax when getting a Brazilian done at a professional spa. I was blown away at how gentle the wax was on my skin and how I didn't look like a plucked chicken for the first time! The tin fits perfectly in my GiGi wax warmer and is so easy to use. I gave myself a Brazilian for the first time ever and it turned out great! The wax clings to the hair perfectly, which cuts down on any extra 'ouch' pulling. What also helps to attribute to less pain is that no annoying strips are required." — Madison
Panasonic electric razor with three sleek blades, an ultra thin foil, pivoting heads, a pop up trimmer, and other available attachments that'll follow the contours of your body while shaving (wet or dry) and convince you to bid adieu to your archaic convenience store razors.
This master of hair removal has over
6,500 five-star reviews! It comes with a charger and a battery that'll last 20 minutes on a 12 hour charge. Promising review: "I wasn't sure I believed the hype about this razor but I figured, for the price, it was worth a shot to combat my chronic bikini area razor burn issues. Let me tell you, I will NEVER go back to shaving my bikini area with a razor again. This product is fantastic! The pop up trimmer handled some of the longer hairs very well, I just used that all over first. Then the foil shaver got a nice smooth shave. No bumps or nicks like I used to get from shaving with a razor. I also tried it on my legs and loved it as well! I'm going to recommend this to all my female friends and will probably purchase some as gifts. I think this is a must have product for every woman! This is life changing in the best way." — Sutton
Price: $19.99+ (also available with a bikini line attachment)
A pack of six
eyebrow razors you can use when you wake up one day with your mom's trademark bushy brows on your face and decide you're not ready to embrace your hairiest heritage (these also work great on defining hairlines!).
Promising review: "These razors are so amazing and easy to use. Simply angle the blade and stroke with the direction of the hair. I don't even have a lot of peach fuzz on my face, I mainly wanted to get rid of baby hairs on my hairline, and facial hair on and under my jawline continuing to my neck. The whole process took under 10 minutes. I was able to clean up my hairline, both in front of my ears (the sideburn area) as well as head hair on the back of neck (I wanted to clean up my hairline a bit). I've never heard of this brand before, but I took a chance and I'm so happy that I did! If you're wanting to do some easy, painless, quick, and cheap facial hair removal then this is exactly what you need. Enjoy you new, smooth skin!" — Brooke
facial hair remover for getting rid of unwanted upper lip hair and any strays on your chinny chin chin. It's also really useful for removing baby hairs if you want your makeup to flawlessly glide on.
It seems like there's a reason this tool has over
5,800 five star reviews! This requires one AA battery, which is included. Promising review: "This product is truly a life changer for me. I have PCOS and one of the side effects is excessive hair growth. I’ve tried so many different things to deal with the hair on my face but nothing has worked like this! Normally I use a straight razor to shave my face but it would leave razor burn and took forever to do. With this my face feels so soft and only takes about two minutes! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone!" — Ashley
Price: $19.88+ (available in six colors)
hair removal light that's designed to get rid of your body hair for good in a ~flash~.
I have this at home and I am shocked (pun always intended) by how easy it is to use! I have really pale skin and really dark hair, so I'm definitely the right type for this, and I'm pretty impressed with the results. It's tedious, so I recommend starting with one small area and sticking with just that, then moving to other spots after the multi-week process is finished —it'll keep you more thorough and make changes more obvious. You'll be able to skip shaving for multiple days, then weeks, and then be done! So far my results have lasted and I'm totally in love with this thing. The kit incudes the light, a razor, and sunglasses. Just shave before, throw your glasses on, and light 'er up!
Promising review: "I was skeptical as I had never used something like this before however, after just three treatments I can see less hair regrowth and my hair feels softer than before. I'm so happy with the results. I've been using it once a week and will continue to do so. I can't believe a home hair remover can work as well as a professional salon hair remover. I can see huge difference. I love love love it. I highly recommend to everyone one." — wudon
Get it from Amazon for
$89.98 (available in two colors).
five-blade travel razor with thick moisturizing bands, a handle, a refill, and a traveling case — everything you need to shave on vacation is sure to be in this pocket-sized piece.
Promising review: "I bought these for a cruise last year. Cruise ship bathrooms are notoriously tiny, in the shower especially. Having the very short, comfortable handle made it extremely easy to shave in very tight quarters. The five blades made for a very close and smooth shave on my legs. All the better for island hopping! Seriously, I can honestly say that these are the best razors to do the job beautifully and comfortably, that I've purchased in many many years!" — CruisnTrkrs
waterless shave gel so you can get a smooth shave without having to step in your budget hotel's suspicious-looking shower.
This shaving gel is paraben-free, alcohol-free, cruelty-free, and 100% vegan. It hydrates your skin, even without water, thanks to the eucalyptus, clove, and ginger oils used. Sensitive-skin-havers, rejoice!
Promising review: "I hate trying to shave in the shower as most of the time I waste product and miss areas. With this gel I can wear on my glasses, smooth it on, glide the razor over my legs once, and be done! I don't have to rinse or wipe anything off. I also love how I have no nicks, cuts, bumps, or dryness after using this shave gel. I rinsed the blade and out the door faster than when I conventionally shave." — Holly Lewis
A pair of stainless steel
slant-tip tweezers that'll be the easiest way to remove tiny stray hairs, without a ~sliver~ of a doubt.
Surprised that a basic pair of tweezers would be this popular? Take your doubt on over to the over
6,000 five-star reviews! Promising review: "These are the best tweezer I've ever owned. This awesome tool really knows what it's doing. I have been plucking blindly at chin hairs for over ten years and have always been frustrated by my other tweezers. Now, with one pluck, those darn chin hairs are gone. I wish I'd known about these a long time ago. It's amazing how much life can be improved by a good pair of tweezers. I also used these the other day the get a shard of glass out from under my fingernail. I don't know how I would have gotten it out without these. I love, love, love them." — Tammy
facial hair coil so you can get some quality threading results on your lip, chin, cheeks, and neck without waiting in line at a salon after work.
Promising review: "This is a game changer. I am mixed, Iranian and black, and you have an idea of how thick and dark my hair is. Unfortunately, it grows thick and dark on my upper lip and chin area. I used to go weekly to get these areas threaded or waxed and trust me, it can get pretty expensive! If I were ever strapped for cash I would be stuck with a five o'clock shadow. I have tried waxing those areas myself and I just didn't seem to have the skill or some of the kits were not strong enough for my hair. This tool is like the miracle I needed. Is it painful? Yes. But it's not anymore painful than threading. I can use this during my nightly routine and not be tied to salon hours. I absolutely love this product!" — Manijeh Brooks
depilatory cream that's gonna help you remove hairs from the root, particularly in areas you'd rather not shave. Knuckle hair, beware! This stuff is coming for you.
This gentle formula uses aloe vera, vitamin E, and baby oil to protect your skin while removing hair much closer to the root. It's safe to use on your arms/underarms, legs, bikini zone, hands, and feet, but isn't recommended for your face.
Promising review: "This fab product removes unwanted hair in a jiffy. It's a great value. There is no irritation at all. I am sensitive to fragrances, but this has an all-natural smell. This does a professional job at a fraction of the cost." — Romesh
electric razor with four gold plated heads and built-in LED lights to make spotting hairs easy and smoothly move over those nooks and crannies that often get nicks.
This uses a rechargeable lithium battery and includes the charging port. This can be used with or without water and shaving cream (thanks fancy blades!) but it's not intended for use on your underarms.
Promising review: "I typically like to wax or epilate but during the winter I tend to let it go. I must say I am impressed with this product. I have sensitive skin, keeping me from shaving because of razor burn but this really is a great alternative. It’s nice and compact and I love that you can take the whole thing apart and clean it. Even with my sensitive skin, I’ve experienced no redness or burning whatsoever. I’m guessing you could probably use it everyday." — Cait
travel razor that's gonna erase any spots you may have missed in the shower the second you see them, no matter where you are.
This petite piece has a refillable water spritzer, pre-shave moisturizing bar, and two individual razor blades.
Promising review: "This really is a convenient on-the-go travel razor. I was parked in the lot at work, took a look at my legs, and noticed that I missed a spot. I was pretty excited to know that I was covered. It gets all the small hairs you missed in the shower perfectly. The pre-shave bar added the final touch. I was surprised it could be used afterwards as a moisturizer! Honestly, it’s even perfect for camping or any road trip." — Catherine K.
Price: $17.99+ (available in six colors)
adjustable razor handle great for after a surgery, during a pregnancy, or when getting those hard-to-reach areas. With this, you won't ever have to bend over backwards for the perfect shave.
This already includes four cartridges but when you need more, you can get them
here. Promising review: "This is an absolutely amazing product! Three years ago, I suffered a horrible back injury that has left me unable to easily shave my legs. I was a bit skeptical in purchasing this product, but I was at my wit's end, not being able to shave can be very frustrating. The ergonomic properties of this razor allow me to reach in every nook, even the front and back of my knees. And the razor blades give me the smoothest shave. I'm so pleased. This is a terrific product." — Gracelyn Savella-Dye
home waxing warmer with *47 accessories* like skin-soothing wipes (designed to calm your skin even if it's sensitive) and signature scented beans safe for Brazilians, bikini zones, eyebrows, upper lips, toe knuckles... and anywhere else you'd rather not have hair.
This uses a low melting point, meaning your skin is far less likely to get burned, even if you've never used an at-home wax before. The entire kit includes five bags of FDA-approved waxing beans, 20 waxing sticks, 10 eyebrow waxing sticks, one pre-spray, one post-spray, 10 gloves, and five protective rings. The digital read out makes it easy to see how hot your wax is and uses colors as a fool-proof way to show you if it's too hot or not.
Promising review: "This is an amazing waxing set and I love it. I use it on my underarms and bikini areas and it's work is amazing. I was worried it wouldn't get the job done because it was so cheap but this exceeded my expectations. It melts the wax so fast on high, I then I lower it all the way down about five minutes before I use it, just to be safe. My skin is very sensitive and I don't have any problems with this. I am a cosmetologist and I would use this on my clients. You won't regret getting this wax set!" — Jennifer
microwavable hard wax you can use if you want an occasional at-home wax but don't have the space to store an entire melting pot.
This includes a seven ounce container of hard wax (that you can microwave, save, and reuse) and eight waxing sticks. If you run out of sticks but still have wax, you can grab more
here! Promising review: "As an African American female, I highly recommend this product. I was able to wax my face, underarm and bikini area. All the hair was removed nicely, without leaving residual bumps. I love this product." — Amazon Customer
A bottle of dermatologist-tested
Veet hair removal gel with aloe and vitamin E to satisfy impatient people who won't waste the day shaving — rub on this stuff and you're sure to be silky smooth in five minutes!
Promising review: "I have really sensitive skin, so I was scared to use this product. I thought as soon as it touched my skin I'd be burned and have never-ending pain, but that was not the case. I only left it on for about five minutes and that's when the magic happened. I used the spatula and started scraping a small area of my leg and the hair just fell right off. I'm silky smooth and couldn't be happier. Also, the product did not smell, contrary to other reviewers claims!" — Private
neckline guide you can simply strap on and confidently shave away if you're someone with baby hairs on your neck and would rather be someone with, well, no baby hairs on their neck.
Promising review: "I bought this to help line up my neck hairs since they grow out really fast. I enjoy using this neckline template to help to line up the back of neck. The adjustable strap is good quality and I feel confident it will stay in place. I really love the material of the template because it is flexible yet sturdy. The edges are tapered down thin so it helps guide the buzzer when I’m shaving the back of my neck. I've saved so much money with one purchase. This is a DIY product everyone needs. Highly recommend." — Derik
nose wax kit for anyone who is fully aware of how painful tweezing nose hairs is and who wants a practically painless system that'll let them breath easy (literally).
Promising review: "I was a bit nervous about waxing my nostrils because I know how painful plucking a single hair from the nose region can be. The stinging, the watery eyes, and the almost immediate need to sneeze. But I'm down to try new things. First of all, the packaging is fun and humorous, which is way better than trying to be all fancy and serious. Upon opening the box I found everything neatly and securely packaged. The instructions are presented in a very clear and easy step-by-step manner. The product itself did have a slight crayon smell to it, but um... its wax, duh. I applied the product in both nostrils at once and proceeded to tidy up the kitchen for the suggested 90 second wait time. Then it was go time. One swift yank on each nostril and there I had it... two lovely wax and hair lollipops. I never knew my nose was such a hairy beast. The best part, other than a little sting, there was no pain, or screaming, or bleeding. I love this product. I give this five stars!!! My nostrils are officially smoother than my legs." — Mandey
nose hair trimmer if the thought of waxing stresses you out or if you have a nose ring you'd rather not have ripped from your nostril.
This tiny tool has over
7,900 five-star reviews! Which is no surprise, considering it can remove nose, ear, and eyebrow hair while also cleaning up edges around beards. You can use this dry, but it's also waterproof, so feel free to use it in the shower if you prefer! It includes a protective cover for the clipper and a cleaning brush. It runs on one AA battery, not included. Promising review: "I'm not sure why I waited so long to buy one of these. Maybe I was just a masochist and enjoyed plucking nose hairs with tweezers, but not anymore! This is such an improvement over an older trimmer I had that ripped at hairs randomly and without warning. This cuts hairs cleanly with no pain, and it is quiet! No worries about an internal battery that craps out on you rendering the trimmer useless, this uses one AA battery and is super easy to replace." — Jeff
A pack of four
depilation sponges with one hair removal side and one lubricating side — this can solve any on-the-go moments when you'd love a shave but would love avoiding razor burn even more.
To use, simply rub the removal side in clockwise motions, then counterclockwise, and build up in speed. After that, use the lubricating side in a similar manner. Be sure to moisturize after using this product. When used correctly, this makes hair removal a wipe away!
Promising review: "I bought these for my daughter. This is very convenient for her as it is small enough to keep it in her bag. She can use it anytime, anywhere, and it is very easy to clean! Compared to other hair removal methods, this hair removal sponge is really both affordable and will not bring harm to the skin. My daughter loves it! I highly recommend it!" — Modelmomof6
And finally, a pack of three
Venus disposable razors with a moisture band so effective you'll get a smooth shave without adding even a drop of messy shaving cream.
Promising review: "I've been using these razors for years and they're amazing. They're so gentle that I can actually shave without shaving cream to no adverse effects! Plus, they're pretty inexpensive! I'd say I switch out razors about once a month, and they're hardly dull." — Kayleigh
These products are really great if you like to feel smooth, but remember... you do you!
