HI,I use this trimmer called finishing touches, I got it about 2 months ago off HSN (home shopping network)I have seen them at walgreens now. You can use them on face and bikini line, I do my lip eyebrows and fuzz off face with it, I have had no trouble with it.Its not a razor so your hair doesnt come back stubbly at all , Belive me i was scared at first but i have been useing it a while and it does what it says. Good luck to you.
I've heard about this cream that you can get a prescription for its called Vaniqua and it's supposed to be proven to retard hair growth, but you have to actually remove the hair first...its supposed to be very good for peach fuz and even help coarse dark hair to some extent.
Unfortunately its not available in Australia so I haven't been able to try it first hand...maybe ask your GP about it
To remove it, you can use Sallie Hansen facial hair remover creme with vitamin E. It is very gentle and works very well. As another poster mentioned, there is also a cream called Vaniqua which could be good for you. You can only get it with a prescription from your dermatologist or your doctor. It is supposed to slow down and then stop hair growth where applied.

I have to say that I disagree that peach fuzz is not visible. Especially when someone is in sunlight, it is very visible, and just as much a moustache/beard/what have you, especially if it is thick or there is a lot of it.
There's a process called "threading" that works really well with this. I'm not sure how many areas it's in, but it's been in my area for years now.
It started in the Persian countries (Iraq, Iran, etc) and was used there for centuries.
It looks odd - just as the name implies, it's done with thread. They wind it around their hands in such a way that they can get all the little fuzz out. About the same sensation as waxing. But, it tends to last longer.
And, one benefit is that, over time, it causes the hair to stop growing in that spot permanently.
Check around you for this - it's worth looking into.
Um...why not just take a razor and lightly shave downwards. The peach fuzz will not grow back any thicker, shaving with the grain keeps the ends from being blunt, and it doesn't cost a thing or irritate your skin.
When I start to get fuzzy around the lip or towards the "sideburns" area, that's what I do, and it's never been a problem. Maybe every few weeks I notice the fuzz and do it again.
You don't have to lather up or anything, just use a very light touch, and your skin won't be irritated.
And those little thingies you see advertised on tv are razors, they are doing the same thing. It's a lot less irritating that creams or waxes, and I've heard that waxing the face isn't good cause it causes more wrinkles around the lips.
What if you have dark brown peach fuzz betweeen your shoulder blades on your back? Would you use wax, shave, nair or what?
How would you reach it? LOL!! Nair is good...so is Magic Powder....sold at walgreens. it's like a hair remover for black mens course hair...but i use it for my legs, under arms and down there. lol. it works great. it's a powder that you mix with water, make a paste and slather it on. better than nair. do not use it on your face.
