I'm a 22 year old Italian girl and I've had upper lip hair that I've noticed since I was 11. I also have kinda light skin. I got so sick of it that I started to bleach it. And it just looks worse, especially when I wear some foundation. It just makes it blond. I have a lot of fine hairs on my upper lip(tons! And it is so gross. All the women in my family have it.) I want it gone. I'm scared to wax, I am definitely not going to shave it. I am stuck on what to do because I don't want it to grow back darker. I can't have it permanently removed...I'm broke.

I've got the same exact thing and I'll tell you what I do that works like a miracle-
Either 1. Go get your lip threaded (they do eyebrows, too if you'd like a nicer shape there). It's an Indian thing where they pluck the hair with thread, by getting the hairs caught in the twists and pulling it out. It's like plucking only faster and less painful.
or 2. They have a cream (at your local CVS) that you can get, and use more than once, you apply it and it basically melts the hairs off. That one also works really really well for me when I can't afford to go to get it threaded. You just put it on for five minutes, wipe it off with moist cloth and you're good to go. It should only cost 5 bucks I think.1
