Review: The Qstick

Unfortunately, facial hair is something that I have dealt with almost all of my life - namely excess eyebrow hair. I have a unibrow tendency and I do not always notice it. And when I do, I spend what seems like forever plucking my brows to get them trim and separated. Getting my eyebrows waxed isn't expensive, but I would rather spend that money on other things - like groceries, gas or medication.

   Now, I had heard about threading, but never had the opportunity to get it done professionally. I recently acquired a manual threading device, though. I was a little nervous when I tried it. After all, who really appreciates the feeling of having hair ripped out by the roots?
   It is a spring with two pink handles on each end. You bend the spring into a U-shape, place it where you want hair removal and then twist the handles. It sounds like a faster way to remove those eyebrow hairs. But alas, it is not. The device would only pull one or two hairs at a time, when it did at all. I used this on the same spot eight times and it only pulled hair twice. There is still hair in that location. Maybe I did it wrongly, but I made sure to go against the grain of the hair, as the instructions said and it just didn't seem to work properly.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
