How to Use a Bellabe
Bellabe Facial Hair Remover
The Bellabe Facial Hair Remover is always made and manufactured in the United States of America. The Bellabe Facial Hair Remover was designed by Bellabe to remove facial hair from the roots without damaging the skin like waxing or bleaching does.The Bellabe removes facial hair through the trapping of the unwanted hair in the Bellabe's precision coils; then it gently lifts the hair from the roots. In effect the Bellabe works much like tweezers expect that it can remove a small area of hair at one time instead of just one or two hairs at a time. The Bellabe Facial Hair Remover comes in a clear tube for safe and clean storage. The Bellabe Facial Hair Remover is only meant to be used on the upper lip, chin, and cheeks it is not meant to be used on eyebrows or any other area where hair grows.
The Bellabe Facial Hair Remover arrived today (June 27, 2015). I received a blue Bellabe Facial Hair Remover; it arrived in a clear plastic tube with a double sided card with instructions on how to use, handle, and clean the Bellabe Facial Hair Remover. I really liked that this item came with the clearly written instructions for use and cleaning as it removes any element of guessing on how to handle the Bellabe. The item arrived undamaged without any scratched, dents, or broken pieces.
Bellabe in Use
When I first saw the Bellabe the first question that crossed my mind was: how much is this going to hurt? The answer to that question varies from person to person based on sensitivity level, pain threshold, and the number of hairs grabbed by the bellabe. For me I found the using it on my upper lip was painful; it was not horrible pain, but my upper lip is a very sensitive area for me. The best way I can describe the pain is like the pain from tweezing, but that pain is amplified based on the number of hairs the bellabe pulls out. When I used the bellabe on the hair under and around my chin it was just uncomfortable, but not painful. The reason for the pain/discomfort is because the hair is not taken out it one quick pull, but instead rolled out. The best way to describe it that I found is using tweezers to take the hair out is a bit like taking a band-aid of quickly using the bellable is a bit like taking the bellabe off slowing.
Even though the bellabe is not pain free I still found myself using it again and again even after experiencing the pain. You might ask why is she putting herself through this when tweezing would hurt less? The simple answer is that tweezing might hurt less, but it is much more time consuming and tweezers don't always get the root out. The bellabe takes multiple hairs out at once and it always get the hair out at the root. Using the bellabe cut the time I would normally have spent using tweezers in half! The other great thing is that since each hair was pulled out at the root it will take four to six weeks for those hairs to grow back. This is a huge benefit to me as it takes me less time to do hair removal with the bellabe and I don't have to remove hair as often as I used to. Overall while there is some pain and discomfort it is not enough to stop me from using the bellabe.
How to Clean a Bellabe
In order to keep the bellabe in the best condition possible for as long as possible it is important to follow the instructions that come with each bellabe. The instructions say that there are three ways to clean the bellabe, but the most important thing to know is do NOT get the bellabe wet.
- You can tap it lightly against a hard surface.
- You can use a dry tooth brush to clean (be careful not to stretch the spring).
- You can put some clean alcohol on a cotton ball, squeeze out the alcohol then rub the spring lightly. When finished dry with a dry washcloth.
