It's estimated the average woman spends 12,000 in her lifetime in a bid to get silky smooth skin.

A team from the University of Pennsylvania found that a drug, widely used to treat viral infections of the eye, helped stop the growth of unwanted hair when it was added to a rub-on gel.

I am assuming that such a product would cost a tonne of money, seeing as so many shaving product companies would lose a boat load of money providing that this were cheap.

Hmm... reminds me of the stuff a certain Johann Faust sold to the chaplain of Dorsten Castle... he did not have to shave again for a while either, his face was too blistered...

I was thinking same.  lol

Tip for guys under-18!
Despite what the mirror tells you...No!...  your facial hair looks crap.  Splash some milk on your face and get a cat to lick it off.

The last time I heard anything about a gel that retards beard growth, it was in one of Philip Jose Farmer's books - I think it was World of Tiers.  Science fiction once again becomes reality...

Tibetans have an ancient herbal remedy that does the same thing, but they guard it jealously.  A Tibetan lama told me about this himself when he saw how often I had to shave my face.  He was concerned that if the formula was shared someone might make money off of it.  For all of the incredible wisdom and knowledge he had, this made me think Tibetans have a collective neurosis.

So Nair or waxing isn't enough?

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Yes! Hope this can be released to the public in the near future. I HATE my facial hair and I wish it wouldn't ever grow! I think I would even pay my whole life's savings for this... Maybe.... =P
