It happens to us all. You’re walking past a mirror, or happen to look into the mirror in the car while you’re waiting in the school pick up lane…and you catch sight of something strange. You lean in closer, and there it is. A stray hair. It might be on your lip, your chin, or even your cheeks, but it’s noticeable in places other than where it should be!
It’s okay to freak out a little, that’s to be expected. You might need a cheer up chat from a family member or a friend, possibly a glass of wine and a good piece of chocolate to get over your hysterics. It’s okay, I get it. I’ve been there. At least you didn’t have to hear the question “What’s that black hair sticking out of your chin?” from your teenage daughter (who still has no unwanted hair on her chin or upper lip).
There are ways to address this common problem. Yes, ladies, it is common – you’re not the only one! It’s just one of those things that we usually don’t talk about. You can tackle unwanted hair with shaving or waxing, though the thought of having to shave my face is a bit off-putting. And waxing? I’ve tried it before and I end up with bright red, sensitive skin for days. It’s worse than the hair!
The easy, non-painful way to handle unwanted facial hair is to use a cream bleach, which lightens the hair making it virtually invisible. When it comes to creme bleach, Jolen Creme Bleach is the #1 bleach brand in the world. It first hit the shelves in 1964 and has been a beauty staple in homes for millions of women ever since. It must be American women’s best kept secret, because my mom certainly never told me about it. To think, I could have saved myself all of those just-drank-the-KoolAid mustaches…
What Can Jolen Do?
Jolen creme bleach comes in original formula as well as a sensitive formula with Aloe Vera for those with sensitive skin such as mine. The last thing I want when trying to eliminate dark, noticeable hair is to have any bumps, redness, or other reactions, but both formulas are gentle and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. So you can say goodbye to the KoolAid mustache look that comes along with waxing. Yay! Jolen can be used to lighten facial and body hair – but keep it away from your lady parts. You can also use it to lighten up your eye brows and to streak your hair!
What I really like is that Jolen creme bleach takes just 10 minutes to achieve results that last up to 4 weeks! It’s great that I can multi-task while I’m using it too. Unlike being stuck in a chair at the salon while being waxed, I can send off some emails or make a phone call – even fold laundry while I am bleaching my ‘stache.
