Most people get the hang of Bellabe in just a few tries. As you become more familiar and comfortable with using Bellabe, removing unwanted facial hair will be a breeze! In fact, many of our customers use it while watching TV, on the internet or reading.
No! Bellabe was designed for use only on the upper lip, chin, cheeks, jawline, sideburns and neck areas. It should not be used to remove hair from the eyebrows as it will pull your eyelashes out! Yes, it is that effective!! It should also not be used to remove hair from the ears, armpits, legs, back, bikini area or any other body area not specified.
Everybody has different levels of sensitivity. Some users may experience a slight tingling or prickling sensation while others may find it too sensitive for them. Remember, Bellabe is truly pulling several strands of unwanted hair out from the roots. We have many users who say that they don't feel anything at all. With regular Bellabe use, your skin becomes less sensitive to the sensation. Because some areas of the face are less sensitive than others, we recommend starting at the chin, neck area and jawline and then working your way to the upper and lower lip (which many find to be the most sensitive areas).
Most Bellabe users have actually found that hair grows back finer with Bellabe. Unlike shaving, a process that typically thickens the hair, the removal of hair from the roots has been shown to thin out hair over time. However, hormones and genetics determine hair regrowth and thickness, whether using Bellabe, tweezing, waxing or shaving.
Yes, instead of turning the handles in a continuous motion, (as instructed in the leaflet), just give the handles one turn, and when you feel the hairs being caught in the coils, jerk the spring away from your face.
No. Bellabe does not cause ingrown hairs because Bellabe removes hair from the roots. Unlike shaving or plucking, Bellabe does not cause the breakage of hair but rather allows the entire removal of it from tip to root.
Why spend hours in front of the mirror tediously tweezing individual hairs when Bellabe can do the work for you? Bellabe saves you time by removing several strands of hair at once, without the need for a mirror. You can use Bellabe while watching TV! Some users actually find using Bellabe addictive!
Hair regrowth varies from person to person, and depends on your hair type and the rate of your own hair growth. It may take anywhere from 3 days to 4 weeks before you need to use Bellabe again. When hair is removed closer to the root, the new hair takes longer to grow back to the surface.
Bellabe does not use any chemicals, lotions or creams. If you do not have an allergic reaction or skin irritation to hair being removed from the roots, then you should not have any problem with Bellabe. Some people may experience a little redness due to removal of several strands at a time, but the redness usually subsides within 30 minutes. We recommend a preliminary patch test first before using Bellabe.
For some people, they would break out when they thread but not when they wax. Or they would break out when they wax but not thread. It's all individual. Therefore, it is suggested that your face is cleansed, toned and moisturized after each Bellabe use. I have found that using Thayers Medicated Superhazel with Aloe Vera has helped tremendously with the break outs. An antibacterial cream or a mask to tighten the pores after each session is also suggested. Again, a preliminary patch test is always recommended before first using Bellabe.
Yes, even girls as young as 10 have used Bellabe . Children have sensitive skin, and Bellabe is the perfect hair removal product. However, a preliminary patch test is always recommended for those younger than 13.
No. You should NEVER wash your Bellabe with water or get it wet. You should only clean your Bellabe with a cotton ball slightly dampened with rubbing alcohol to remove any makeup or oils from the spring. Then dry with a paper towel. Please store your Bellabe in a cool, dry place. Humidity or less than ideal conditions may cause the spring to discolor. Makeup, moisturizers, facial products and the skin's own natural oils will cause the spring to discolor. This will in no way affect the effectiveness of Bellabe.
