For as long as I can remember, I’ve visited a salon to tame my unruly brows. I’ve done it all: waxing, threading, tweezing, even dermaplaning to get rid of the pesky hairs in the middle of my brows (and if we’re being honest here, my upper lip as well). Though the bushy-brow trend has taken off, I still find the need to clean up my brows out of pure routine. Now that quarantine has messed up most of our usual day-to-day routines, getting my eyebrows done at the salon has become a thing of the past.
Why? Because the Nad’s Precision Eyebrow Wax Wand has got my eyebrows (and yet again, my upper lip) covered. This nifty $8 tool (which is currently 50 percent off on Amazon, by the way) is exactly what you need to wax away little pesky, unruly brow hairs without the inconvenience of usual waxing strips and kits, which is why I’m breaking up with my trips to the brow salon and sticking to this budget-friendly facial hair tamer.
Though the pen aspect of this pick (and its under-$5 price tag) caught my eye at first, the actual wax in this pen is extremely easy to work with, unlike many other body hair wax kits I’ve used before. The only heat it needs is from your hands, so you won’t have to worry about burning yourself with scolding wax. Plus, its gentle formula has more of a gel-like feel, which grabs onto even the tiniest of hairs without pulling on your skin. It’s also pretty easy to wash off if you get it in your hair or any other unwanted area — I just ran the wax through water, and it washed away much quicker than other waxes I’ve used in the past.
Closing Argument: If you’re looking to break up with the salon and find a cheaper, gentler alternative to conventional tweezing and waxing, then this nifty waxing gizmo is what you need. Not only is it easy to use, but its wax formula is pretty impressive — which is why I’m sticking to this wax pen for good.
