Ouch!!!! Too painful, grabs at random hair, so not an even touch. Your face maybe irritated after use.

This product really works but I will NEVER use it again and have already returned it because it made me break out so badly! I must have had AT LEAST twenty breakouts on each cheek, plus a handful on my chin. I have never broken out this badly to a product in my life [and I try a LOT of products and am breakout prone]. I struggled with acne bad in high school [I was on two rounds of Accutane] and my skin after using this product resembles my acne at its worst in my teenage years. If you're breakout prone, USE CAUTION. I recommend testing this on a small area of your face so you don't have to go through all of the breakouts and scarring that I did. [Side note: I washed, toned, and moisturized before using this and after using this AND I used a skin purging mask afterwards, so I know I took every step to prevent breakouts. I'm not even sure what about the product caused me to break out--the metal? I don't know]
If you're not breakout prone or you want to take your chances, this product really works!! I really, really wish that my skin didn't react so badly to it because this would be an HG product for me. It removes the hairs flawlessly, and it is so easy! I have a lot of peach fuzz on my face and this got rid of it all. I have a pretty high pain tolerance, so the pain of it didn't really bother me, but above and below the lips can hurt pretty badly, so fair warning.
Overall, this product does what it says it's going to do, but it's not worth the terrible breakout. Also, I think it is a little overpriced for it is. I think I paid about $16 for mine on Amazon.

Have many dark hairs on my chin since having my son hormone imbalances. I can't wax as it causes rashes and peels skin badly and plucking was taking too long I got the original REM SPRING from Amazon for about $15. The investment for a quality product was worth it. No problems and it works great leaves chin smooth. I can still see some dark spots where the hair hasn't come in yet but it's not bad I wouldn't be able to get it with tweezers anyway. Using for 1-2 years now and the upper lip has fuzz but not bad however it still hurts there so I try quickly. My hair grows fast so to keep up I need to use it about every 2 days. Invest in American made stainless steel over the cheaper ones.

Hurts way too much to even know if it works.

Do not use this!!!
I purchased mine on Ebay for two dollars - so maybe this is reason, but I doubt it because the technique is the same.
I've used this on my upper lip and it doesn't pluck your hair - it just cuts it, just like shaving! this is horrible. Right now I have a gross man-like-after-shaving-mustache. And it also hurts, so what's the point of the pain if doesn't even remove the root?
Worst tool EVER

I have been using the Bellabe for years, it is one of those products in my drawer that I have never thought to review simply because I use it without even thinking about it. I use it about every two weeks to get rid of those pesky lip hairs (I have a lot and they are quite thick), and I use it around my chin and jaw as well. It is a little painful, but I hardly notice because I usually just use it while I am watching tv and am therefore distracted from the pain. The company recommends to get a new one every 6-9 months, but I use mine for much longer and have yet to see any negative side effects. I would, however, happily buy it every six months since it is really that good of a product. Also, make sure to get it from Bellabe--I tried a different brand once and it was much more painful to use. I went back to my Bellabe immediately.

Purchased mine off of Ebay....ordered it from China for only $1.25 w/ free shipping! I'm sure I could of won it auction/bidding style for much less, but seeing as others payed over $14...this was a steal!! I was scared the first time I decided to purchase something coming from China/Ebay..and I was sure there was no way it could really be free shipping. Well, I have purchased A LOT of things from China/ebay over the past 2yrs and I love it!!! None of my items have ever taken more than 7-9days to arrive &only ONE of my items (I payed $0.10 w/ free shipping THATS 10 C_E_N_T_S people) didn't arrive and the seller credited my credit card. It's crazy, I'll shop at Sally's Beauty Supply or stores in the Mall & you'll be amazed as to how many things sold at the stores for 5 10dollars that you can purchase for cents if you order from China. Example: I purchased(auction style) nail art supplies like rhinestones in a wheel shaped package that sale for $4.99+tax at Sallys for only 33cents!! They also had a buy it now option that was 99cents

I have been looking for something like this for years. I have always had peach fuzz all over my face, but it has gotten thicker as I've gotten older, and my upper lip has darkened and I get a few coarse black hairs on my chin. This is not acceptable, but it's really hard to remove the hair from your entire face. I've tried everything except lasers, which I'll get if I can ever afford it. This will do in the meantime, though. It's basically a threading tool which is just a very tight spring that you roll over your face. It stings, especially on the upper lip, but it hurts a lot less than waxing, and the redness is less than when I use Nair. It takes a few minutes to get the hang of it, but it was very easy. I'll update this if I have any sort of reaction later, but I doubt it because I've never had an adverse reaction to hair being ripped out in a number of other ways, and this seems like the most gentle of them all. I will definitely be repurchasing this when it wears out, and I'm even thinking about getting a few spares right away. I got mine on Amazon for 14.99.
ETA: I've now used this for three days in a row and it barely hurts anymore, it's just bad the first time. If you keep up with it every other day or every three days there isn't enough hair for it to hurt much. I've had no adverse reaction and I'm doing a regimen of pretty harsh fruit acid peels. I think this is going to help purge my pores as a lot of small clogs have been pulled out with the hairs and I imagine it will be easier for skin care products to get into the pores now. My skin is so smooth and appears more vibrant and brighter than it has in years. I will never, ever be without one of these tools ever again. Absolute HG, if I was stranded on a desert island and could only take one thing-level HG! Try this, you will be amazed, it is life-changing if you've been fighting a losing battle with unwanted facial hair.

This review is for the Bellabe spring. After much researching between Bellabe, REM, and the cheap $1 knockoffs, I decided to go with Bellabe. Total came out to $14.00 on Amazon. The spring comes in a small plastic tube which is perfect and hygienic for travelling! Of course, I opened it up and put it to use as soon as I got it in the mail. First impression: wow, it actually works! I started on my chin, which for some reason is able to tolerate hair removal pain really well. My chin was left so smooth. Took a look at the spring and I could see tiny little hairs with roots caught in the spring. The lip area is definitely a little more painful. As long as you're patient, this product gets the job done! Just a tip: I've found it's much more effective if you make a wider shaped u and move quickly versus making a tight shaped u as pictured in most how-to's and directions. I've found it doesn't pluck coarse black hair though, so don't throw out your tweezers just yet. Remember to clean with rubbing alcohol after each use to avoid any break outs.

In the past I have waxed and used hair removal creams for the hair on my upper lip and was tired of the mess of waxing and the raw almost burning sensation from hair removal creams. I had seen these on blogs and YouTube for a few years, but never really gave it any thought. I saw one on Ebay for $1.00 with free shipping so I decided to try it! When I first used it, I was shocked at just how painful it is!! I have an extremely high pain threshold, tattoos, waxing, you name it and I even felt like this hurt like crazy! I've seen girls use it on YouTube without even flinching so I'm hoping with prolonged use the pain will lessen similar to waxing. I will keep using this because it requires no mess or chemicals and obviously for a dollar the price can't be beat. It does do exactly what it's made for and I have no complaints with how it functions. I would definitely buy another one if the one I have somehow no longer worked.
