How about threading? It would be faster than tweezing, but gentler on your skin than any chemical hair remover or bleach.

Sorry about your lip. I know with my eyebrows there was never any pain involved! Are you happy with how it turned out though? As for numbing it....orajel? That has lidocaine in it, maybe that would help...or maybe they'd just wipe it off!

Sooooo.... I got my upper lip threaded today. The good news: it worked. The bad news: holy f%^# was that a painful experience!
