Okay ladies, with this post I am on to another personal topic … facial hair. I know too well that while peach fuzz sounds cute, I think we can all agree otherwise – especially after you apply your foundation – that it simply is not.
Like many woman, this is something that I tried to address for many years and I even put off for fear it would grow back darker, fuller or thicker which, based on my experience, is not the case. After numerous attempts with everything from products I would find in stores to an occasional spa treatment (a very rare occasion) to even home remedies I found online, I was never satisfied with the results I got until last January when I bought DERMAFLASH after seeing it in Sephora.
(Please bear in mind, this is not a sponsored post – I genuinely love the results I have seen and have in no way been incented or compensated for sharing my opinion on the product.)
DERMAFLASH is an at-home device that’s based on Dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is a costly treatment available at medical spas that exfoliates the skin by using a scalpel and gentle scraping technique to remove the top layer of dead skin cells.
After a prepping with a cleanser, you use a DERMAFLASH wand that uses ultrasonic technology and a razor instead of a scalpel to exfoliate the skin and remove peach fuzz and other debris from your face. The last step is to apply the DERMAFLASH moisturizer and you’re finished. I am left with skin that is smoother for makeup application and any skincare products I use can be better absorbed into the skin.
The 5-piece DERMAFLASH set ordinarily costs $189.00 and comes with:
- Step 1 prep cleanser
- Step 3 post-treatment moisturizer
- DERMAFLASH exfoliating device with 6 exfoliating edges (razors)
- Cord and charging base
This 5-piece set gives you everything you need for six DERMAFLASH treatments. While DERMAFLASH recommends weekly treatments we’re all different and I use it once a month and still see great results. Each razor is single-use so when you run out, they can be bought as part of an “Essentials” kit which ordinarily costs $29.99 for six wands.
I contacted DERMAFLASH and let them know how satisfied I was with their system and they are offering PracticalPetite followers a 25% discount through July 4th when purchasing through their site (discount code: CELEBRATE). DERMAFLASH is also available at Sephora, Macy’s, Ulta, and Nordstrom. Being practical (in this case meaning eager to find the best deal) I did some research and found that QVC offers the 5-piece set for $189 but their version comes with 12 wands instead of 6 and their Essentials kit sells for $49 but comes with a 12 wands instead of 6 so you may want to consider this option.
In short, I’ve found DERMAFLASH is gentle, easy to use and removes peach fuzz and debris that has built up on my face and neck. At same time, I feel the product is pricey and question why razors can only be used once (boo 😟 !!!).
The bottom line is I have found DERMAFLASH to be an incredibly affective method of dealing with facial hair and it leaves me felling great about myself – above everything else, this should be the goal for whatever method you choose to use.
