I no longer use the Epistick because I'm a total baby and it really hurt to pluck out the hairs closest to my nostrils. I now just get it threaded at the store. For those that it worked for, that's wonderful, but for me, I think the hype lasted for a little while and now I don't like it anymore. It's still very functional and works, don't get me wrong, but its just less painful to get it threaded in one shot
I see that a few of yall are curious of this Epistick lol.
Here's a youtube video on how to use this really easy device:
here is the direct link to where I bought my Epistick. HOWEVER, this ebay thing has ENDED, but go ahead and message the seller to see if they put up another bidding link for the same type of sale.
Here's my opinion of it:
1) Does it hurt?
It hurts just as much as you tweezing, except the pain you endure is "quick", not "one by one" like you would get from tweezing, so you get past the pain quicker, BUT not as quickly as you would by waxing. The first time I used it, I CRINGED at the pain. I usually get sensitive to pain from tweezing and all, but after using it for a while, I got used to it and now it's actually addicting to feel all that hair come off XD
2) How much does it cost?
I got mine off of ebay. Search around and you will find cheaper ones. Some sell for $5 and shipping and handeling is also around $5, making the entire thing $10, but what I did was bought 2. It costed me $5 for one, and $2 for any additional EpiStick and then shipping came along for $3 or so dollars.
3) How long did it take you to receive your Epistick?
Like...2 and a half weeks to ship from Asia
4) Does it really actually work or is this product a gimmick?
It really actually works!!! I'm not kidding at all. My boyfriend notices my upper lip fuzzies are gone! Now if a guy notices these fine thin hairs are gone....the product must be working ;) I recommend to do this Episticking AFTER SHOWERING when it's easiest for the hair to come out with less pain. Make sure your face isn't drenched in water though. Be sure to dry off your face first and then Epistick.
5) What else do you think of it?
I think this is such a genius product!!! It's VERY convenient and slim and gets your hair out really quickly--you can actually see the hair on the coil that was pulled out. It's really easy to use and I honestly think everybody should get one!!!
Rating (Using Nessa's form of rating--hope you don't mind me using your style for rating products Nessa!)
Overall: 5 out of 5
Price: 5 out of 5
Would I buy this again: Heck yes
If yall have ANY questions about the Epistick, I'd be glad to answer you the best I can :)
