To be honest the concept did scare me a little, putting a razor near your face?! Yep, really not as bad as I thought. You can use it on eyebrows, the hairline, the upper lip and any other area of your face where you are prone to unwanted hair. Since I was a little nervy anyway, I tried it out on my boyfriend. Seriously. He has thick black eyebrows and I always pluck some of the strays above where his eyebrows should actually be (sorry Andy). I don't touch the underneath as he still wants to look 'manly', whatever that means. When I saw I could use this, I asked him and he seemed happy to be my little guinea pig for the evening. Firstly, this is incredibly quick to use. I tend to sit there plucking eyebrows for about half an hour but this was done within a few minutes.
