I have been using Vaniqa for a year now and its amazing Ive tried everything from waxing, shaving, tweezing and even the nono machine and nothing keeps my face smooth and hair free like Vaniqa, I would suggest tweezing all the unwanted facial hair first ensuring you pull it right out from the root, then starting your Vaniqa routine that same day and stick to to it to see results trust me you will never turn back!!
