I was thoroughly taken aback to receive this . The review I read on FB said it removes hair permanently ( yet it is painless enough to use every day ???) This didn't really add up , but I decided to purchase it anyway. However, the item's package states " grow back thicker guaranteed " - which defeats the whole purpose of the exercise !! So - it sits abandoned in a drawer, gathering dust, as I don't want to actually encourage the growth of facial hair !
