Epicare is a threading product for use on very fine and short facial hair. It is reusable and comes in eight different colours - Fuchsia Pink, Girly Pink, Ocean Blue, Forest Green, Sunshine Yellow, Fiery Red, Timeless Black and Soothing Lavender. I received Timeless Black (colour of the handles).
|You bend it in a horseshoe shape to use|
Epicare is very flexible; it is basically very tightly coiled wire with plastic grip ends. To use it you just bend it in this upside-down 'u' shape shown here, and twist it gently while moving the epicare in an upward motion over the hair. (For a video demonstration, Nail Polish Canada has a 30 second video on their website).
I've only threaded once before (it was my eyebrows and I usually get them waxed) so I'm not overly familiar with threading but I gave it a shot and put epicare to the test!

|Using the epicare|
As you can see, epicare did a good job of removing the hair. My skin was quite dry after removal (and a tiny bit red) so I moisturized afterwards.

And just a tip, when you are finished you will notice the tiny hairs are caught in the wire - just pull on both ends of the epicare to stretch it and it should release the hairs.
So overall I like this product. It is pretty quick and easy and does the job, though it is only for use on short facial hair. It is not completely painless, but much less so than waxing and I love how it is reusable. I would recommend it especially if you regularly wax as it seems to be a good alternative.
If you are interested in purchasing your own epicare, Nail Polish Canada has them available ($15 each - choose your colour). In the US you can purchase at www.epicarehome.com (also $15 each).
Have you tried epicare before? Is this something you would consider using? Do you have a different method of facial hair removal that you prefer?
This product was sent to me by Nail Polish Canada at no charge for my consideration. All opinions are my own.
