Try It Review: Finishing Touch

BUCKHEAD -- Since she became a new mommy a year and a half ago, Samantha Welch admits it's harder to get to the salon to have her eyebrows waxed.

"My eyebrows get really scruffy looking," she said.

So that means Samantha must endure painful tweezing. 

"I try and pluck and then I cry because it hurts," she said.

Finishing Touch by Lumina promises pain free hair removal from even the most sensitive area.

So Samantha couldn't wait to see if the $15 device could deliver on the promises.

"I'm curious if it hurts or if it just shaves it and I'm going to have stubble," she wondered.

First she tried it on the hair on her arms. The vibrating blade seemed to remove the hair quickly.

The Finishing Touch says it has micro-oscillating blades that are guaranteed not to cut or pull the skin.

Encouraged, Samantha tried it on her eye brows.

"It's doing pretty good," she said. "It doesn't hurt at all."

Mayor, Police Chief Join ATL Pride Parade

There were a handful of protesters among the thousands who lined the parade route.
