A few weeks ago I had an odd little conversation with my wife; I can’t remember why or what the context was but for some reason I asked if my wife had ever tried waxing her legs, she replied no she hadn’t and then asked if I had, I told her that I hadn’t as I thought it would hurt, and we left it at that. But it did start me thinking about the whole hair removal thing. Mostly I shave, but on occasion I have used creams, with mixed results. I normally find that there are some hairs left which still need to be shaved off, I have also found that on sensitive areas of skin (e.g. too close to the face) I can end up with a bit of a rash, but I do like the ease of use and smoothness given.With shaving I find that with a bit of effort I can get a good result, but I do need to moisturise afterwards, and the hair grows back quickly and the stubble is unpleasant and itchy, erm, particularly in those more intimate areas.
So I thought I would try waxing, so I bought a kit from Superdrug and gave it a go. First thing I was right it does hurt, but not as bad or for as long as I feared. I did find that the wax took some but not all the hair but the result wasn’t too bad for a first go. The instructions say that hair growth will diminish with repeated use, only time will tell. This weekend I also invested (a very little money) in a wet and dry lady shave. I bought this primarily because I like to have a foil shaver around and this was a very cheap, available option, but maybe it will also serve for body hair.
