Unwanted facial hair can be a real pain so the Bliss ingrown hair eliminating peeling pads seemed a good idea. I read about them in a magazine supplement and decided to give them a whirl.
Boots the chemist stock the Bliss skin products and although I paid £26 for a tub of 50 pads I thought that my usage would be minimal owing to only having to treat an odd small area of skin.
These Bliss hair eliminating peeling pads are not only designed to remove unwanted facial hair, you can safely use them on your bikini line and stubbly legs. My initial thoughts were that the Bliss pads would work out expensive if you intended using them for larger areas of ingrown hair.
I think that we females seem to have drawn the short straw in some areas and as our hormone levels fluctuate we seem to undergo weird and wonderful body changes.
I have always had a few odd and very stubborn hairs that keep reappearing on my chin and as time has gone on these few hairs have got thicker ( owing to being regularly tweaked out!) as they start to ingrow it often causes a small black-headed lump to appear on the skin surface which looks like a large blackhead.
Normally I would just hook about with some sterile tweezers and eventually manage to remove the hair but that process can make my skin feel sore and my main worry is that constant tweezing will eventually mark my skin for good.
The Bliss eliminating peeling pads come in a plain white plastic tub and the pads themselves are just thin layers of `wipe type` fabric which has been dunked into a mixture of oat extract, green tea extract,glycerin, witch hazel, niacinamide, salicylic and glycolic acid.
If you have just waxed or shaved any area of skin then DO NOT use a pad straight afterwards ! The acids in the Bliss pads will make your skin sting and this is uncomfortable.
The Bliss hair eliminating peeling pads are only meant for use on ingrowing hairs , those hairs that cause unsightly little lumps on the skin surface but the pads are safe to use on any body part. Bliss say that the pads are also helpful for those who suffer from acne.
The Bliss pads are easy to use, you just rub the pad over the affected area and Bob's your Uncle, I only use them where my facial hair ingrows so I am only using them on a small area of skin.
The trouble is that you have to repeat the process on a more or less daily basis to eradicate that unsightly skin bump and then after use you need to use a good skin conditioner . This does mean that you can use three or four pads to lessen the offending skin bump which could be a costly job if you were using the pads on larger areas of skin. But once the affected area has been successfully treated then it should be a good while before you need to repeat the process.
I don't find that the acids that are contained in the bliss pads have any adverse affect, that area of newly treated skin may look a little pink for a while but that soon fades away.
Once you have used the Bliss pads you realise that they work well but then it is up to you to weigh up the pros and cons of continuing to use them.
The Bliss eliminating hair pads work out at around 50p each, they are effective but it may take a few days ( and a good few Bliss pads ) for you to notice the difference.
I can see the logic and I like the principle of the ingrowing hair remover pads but I am not so sure that I could live with paying out that amount of money on a regular basis.
Though a good while on I still have a lot of pads left in my tub.
I will use the rest of the tub and then have a think about the situation, as I mentioned earlier I can manage to remove my ingrown facial hair with a pair of tweezers but I know there are many women that resort to trying to shave that uncomfortable hair away which can end up looking awful after a while.
All in all a product that is a wothwhile purchase but whether it will be a sustainable purchase is another matter.
