A WOMAN has been hailed a hero after using a viral face-shaving hack to smooth her sister’s skin – but the unusual technique has also raised some eyebrows.
Content creator and self-styled face-shaving guru Megan Carboney often shares videos of her using a dermaplaner to shave off peach fuzz safely.
But Megan’s latest video shaving her sister’s face for Christmas was particularly intriguing for beauty fans.
Some dubbed her a “hero” while others questioned her technique which produced odd-looking shavings.
Dermaplaning uses a smaller blade to slough off dead skin cells as well as wispy hairs.
Megan used a mystery spray that turned her sister’s peach fuzz white and made the dead skin and hair look like matted dust once it had been scraped off.
She shaved the debris down the cheeks with a small, one-blade dermaplaning tool to reveal a glowing complexion.
The video racked up a whopping 23.5 million views after just a day on the popular video sharing app, with 2.2 million people liking it.
Viewers flocked to the comments to ask what the product was that made the shavings look so unusual.
One asked: “What are you using on her face for prep?”

Another quipped: “What did you spray with before?!
“I dermaplane myself and it looks like it would be easier with whatever you used to see while doing it!”
Megan put fans out of their misery and revealed the mystery spray is a new product she is testing for her razor brand, Try Jill.
One beauty fan dubbed the spray technique as “mesmerising” and begged Megan to post a full video of the shaving session.
However, not all were impressed as many warned that dermaplaning may trigger hair to grow back quicker or cause a painful acne outbreak.
One woman recalled: “Had this once ten months ago and I broke out so bad that my face is still healing from it.
A second woman said: “I have a tool like that but it makes me break out like crazy and gives me rashes on my face.”
Another warned: “That's gonna grow back fuller now.”
