This is a personal experience with the R.E.M. Spring, and serves as a guide for use.

Remove Facial Hair By Its Roots

I’m a brunette of Italian and Finnish origin, (among other things) so facial hair is something I’ve dealt with my whole life. I’ve plucked, waxed, buffered, and shaved--typically in a combination. I’ve spent a ton of money on various products before I finally found one that worked: The R.E.M Spring Hair Remover.

The R.E.M Spring is so simple: It’s literally a tight spring with metal handles on the ends. You bend the spring into an inverse U shape, hold the spring by the handles and twist them clockwise and counterclockwise as you slowly move against the facial hair on your face. Because hair grows at different angles sometimes, you’ll need to turn the spring accordingly, but always keep it in the inverse U shape.

The spring catches the hair, removing it at the root, so it lasts longer than buffering and shaving and is less expensive and more sanitary than waxing. It may hurt a bit the first few times, but after that you’ll get used to it. Some may experience redness or irritation. In my case, it only lasted a few moments, and after a week of using the product every day, it seems to happen less.

There are some places on the face the R.E.M. Spring may have trouble reaching, so you may still need tweezers to touch up those areas. Also, the spring is only meant for the face. It isn’t to be used on any other place on the body.

My only regret is that I didn’t find this product sooner.
