Facial depliatories
« on: June 23, 2021, 02:09:54 pm »
Anyone have experience with depilatory creams designed for men's beards?  Even when I'm not dressing I kinda like the idea of not shaving for 3-4 days.

Got experience with shaving bumps?

Some of these products are very irritating to sensitive skin. Products designed for legs may be too strong for facial use.

For facial hair I recommend a product called "Magic Shave". African-American men in the US have been using this for decades because shaving with a razor may cause their beards to grow under the skin causing ingrown hairs or "bumps".

Disclaimer: I have no financial connection with products that I may recommend.

And yet to me, Magic Shave gave shaving bumps, not the reverse. That's what I meant above. Sorry for any confusion.

Amy, have you considered laser? It won't remove everything, but you should end up with much less facial hair overall.

I'll definitely start laser and/or electrolysis when I start transitioning.  In the meantime I'm just wondering if Magic Shave would keep the stubble under control and let me go without shaving for a few days.

Beard hairs come in all thicknesses and types. Some people have fine hair while other have thick hair. Some people have curly hair and others much less so.

Just try one product and see what it will do for you. Be sure to follow directions carefully. Depilatories are powerful and sometimes irritating chemicals.  They can cause skin irritations.
