Have you had your brows waxed before? If that didn’t leave you with any bumps you should be ok to not get any on your lip. 

Also, if you have skin that is on the sensitive side do not have them put any sort of cooling/soothing cream on afterwards.

i use clean & easy cream hair remover. i buy it at sally’s for, like, $5 and it works really well. it doesn’t sting or leave bumps or anything. i used to use surgi-cream (also from sally’s) but it would irritate my skin occasionally, if i wasn’t careful. but i’ve never had a problem with the clean & easy cream.

i mainly wax it myself but this usually ends up producing the odd spot .. when i’m feeling brave i have it threaded, no spots but i find it a painful process, more so than eyebrow threading.

I buy the Nad’s facial waxing strips and just use those periodically. I don’t really NEED to wax all the time, but you know, don’t want to have someone notice the lady stache in certain lighting situations.

I definitely recommend waxing, just make sure to do it at night so that any redness goes away by the time you have to be seen in public. And don’t wax if you use Retin A– trust me. That was an awkward day in high school.

Sally’s wax remover. I like that I can peel it off myself.

I don’t have  a mustache, but I have sideburns that I dislike?

I used to get them threaded until I started getting it lasered.  Although, I get my entire face lasered.  If it was just the lip, I would have opted for electrolysis because of the small area.  I could explain more about the difference between the two, if you’re interested?

@VMars:  oh. my. gawsh.  i know what you mean.  i used to use retin-a and i had my brows waxed.  not. good.  and i think my brows are permanently a little more red than the rest of my face.  UGH

I use wax strips every few weeks and it seems to work out well for me. I use the Veet face strips and have never once had any irritation.

I get it waxed every three weeks or so with some coworkers.

My hairdresser waxes my eyebrows and my upper lip and I’m never going back! It’s about $15 and totally worth it. I only have to have it done twice a year now because it doesn’t grow back. (For the record, I used to have a noticable dark ‘stache and a unibrow. No longer!)

i used to use one of those creams (i forget what it’s called) and it once burned the skin next to the sides of my mouth bc i have sensitive skin..embarrassing!  i’ve also bleached it but it was a pain.  now i use one of those little trimmer things every few weeks, but it doesn’t work the greatest ever…might have to start getting it waxed.  having to let it grow enough to get waxed is not that appealing, though

I thought you were going to ask how to convice your man to get rid of a ‘stache. I had the answer all ready, too!

“3 sleeping pills and an electric razor.”
