Neither product is a hair removal system. Their function is to only slow the regrowth of facial hair in areas that are normally plucked,waxed or if you are having flash electrolysis(least effective modality). They are used primarily on the soft,downy type hairs that are at a shallow depth unlike course beard hair. It can take weeks for any noticeable results and if I'm not mistaken they state to be used in conjunction with a hair removal system. Save your $$ and put it towards a session with laser or your favorite mistress of zap. Good luck.
