Product Review: Slique Hair Removal Threading System

The Slique Hair Removal Threading System is something I purchased because I love the idea of threading to shape eyebrows and remove hair without waxing. I have quite sensitive skin and waxing sometimes leaves me with a rash reaction. (I also had ABSOLUTELY no chance of developing this skill myself without this nifty little tool so it was a “must-buy” for me!)



So basically it comes in a white box with a very happy looking lady on the front of it, open it up and the actual tool for threading is in there with 20 thread refills (which come in a great little container to avoid tangling) and a booklet of instructions (luckily!). It’s a funky looking purple doodad with a circular dial for adjusting the tension of the thread.


A pretty fantastic idea. The art of threading is extremely difficult to learn and even if you do master it, it is difficult to to it to your own face! It is very easy to use, removes the hair as promised.

The thread they send you with the actual product is not very strong though, and you will find yourself changing it probably 4 or 5 times (maybe more) each time you have a hair removal session. You can use your own thread, but it becomes loose quite quickly and defeats the purpose.



So as I said, the instructions tell you how to use the product. It does say to remove the thread which is already in the tool, but there is definitely no need for that. All you have to do is hold it up to your face where you would like to remove the hair, and squeeze the bottom together, the thread pulls out the hair for you!

Overall it is a great idea, the product can be purchased here but it costs you far too much because it is an American product (around $60 plus shipping). The one that I bought was off Ebay, and cost me about $8!

The refills are quite difficult to source, and I have only been able to find them off Ebay for a marginally cheaper price than buying a whole new Slique!

All in all, if you are willing to use your own thread, even if it is a little frustrating at first, it is definitely worth a shot. Especially if you have sensitive skin and break out with waxing.

    I would like to know how to use your own sewing thread in the slique tool. Is it possible?
    I have had my face threaded for a few years and people always commented how nice my skin looked. My lady moved and no one else is as gentle as she was.

    Haha, this was used in Asia centuries ago as a form of facial hair removal. Love how it comes back now.

    i’ve done this before, you can use normal sewing thread and just twist it! actually works amazing and is so quick!

  • Reply UNoPoo Monday 23rd January, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Sounds like too much effort.

    I used to have my eyebrows threaded at Winkbar and at first I thought it was way better than waxing. But to be honest after a couple of times I found it to be more painful than waxing and the shape was not as symmetrical. I’m going to stick to waxing I think.
