Ta-Daaa Facial Hair and Sayonara Parlour visits: Dono Super Stick- Review

They say a "stitch in time saves nine"..
I say a rip-rip in time saves time and effort for a parlour visit plus the jingles in your pocket.
Let's admit most of us visit parlours for our growths and  other beauty treatments follow eventually ;) While eyebrows can be helped with tweezers what about the upper lip growths?
Yes..now we have a DIY in that sphere too..the answer is... Dono Super Stick!

Description: (from a website)
This Facial Hair Remover is safe and easy to do at home without using cream or wax.
It pulls hairs directly from the root giving professional results and will keep your facial skin clean, smooth and tight so that beautiful make-up can be comfortably done in a speedy manner.
Carefully designed, excellent for use.
Pen size and light weight, take it wherever you go.
No skin darkening.
No batteries or electricity needed.
Removes hair from root & won’t remove skin.
No more waxing or painful tweezers.
Unlike waxing, this epilator does not remove a layer of skin.
Suitable for removing hairs on forehead, cheeks, and chin
Should not be used on eyebrows.
Total length: approx.19.5cm/7.7"; handle length: approx.4.5cm/1.8".
Material: PP (Polypropylene) and stainless steel
Color: Assorted (Pink, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow)

Directions for Use:
Bend the Remover into an upside down U shape and then place against the skin.
Holding the ends with your thumbs and forefingers, roll the Remover backwards and forwards in a continuous motion.
The hairs are trapped between the tightly coiled spring which grips and removes them in one swift movement
Clean your face, and then make up with cosmetics which you often use.

Price: Around a dollar..don't remember exactly!

My Take:
Dono Super Stick is a dupe of its costlier counterpart
REM spring only at a nano fraction of its cost. It is a spring with plastic handles on both the ends for easy grip. All you need to do is bend the Super Stick in an inverted U-shape,bring it closer to the skin where you want to remove hair,make it straight again and roll upwards...Ouch!

Yes it hurts..specially if its your first time! But we ladies are genetically designed to handle pain better..aren't we?
After all we tolerate so many pains everyday..for eg. pain due to our high heels,pain of our well manicured nail breaking,pain due to those huge danglers (God bless our ear lobes)pain due to waxing...pain pain pain...Bring it On!
This makes me think..this pain handling capacity we have could have been a catalyst behind giving us the power to carry a child and bring her into this world..

Ok..back to square one!
I got it from buyincoins,though its available at other sites as well. (I couldn't find it,else would have posted a link to it).It did hurt in the beginning but now I'm kinda conditioned to handle it! It picks up even the tiniest of hair and leaves the skin smooth. I just rub some ice post application or astringent some times. It has never broken me out or given rashes.


 My Likes:
1. I love DIYs.. makes me independent!
2. Very affordable.
3. Picks up the tiniest of hair.
4. Leaves the skin super-smooth.
5. Excellent for last minute emergencies.
6. Available at many oriental websites.
7. Never broke me out.
8. No rashes,redness...nothing! 
9. Easy to carry.
10. Doesn't need any battery or electricity.

My Dislikes:
It hurts in the first few uses.

Last Word:
Its a wonder product for me!

Repurchase: 
Its pretty sturdy .. what's gonna happen to this one?
Over All Rating: 4.5/5

      1. Might seem a lil' tedious in the beginning,now it takes me 5-6 min.
      2. Depends on individual growth..it lasts me as much as a threading does.
