For ‘down there’ and beyond, legs, armpits, wherever you use it. Any hidden gems of the super market?
I’m tired of shaving and am hoping to find a good hair removal product soon. I tried nads already and oh mother of god…. it hurt like hell.
Any advice from those brave few who experiment with hair removal?

Marking, because I’d like to know, too. I’ve had allergic reactions to Nair, so I want to know what’s out there. I’m not interested in waxing or anything like that! My skin is just too sensative, but I get horrible razor rashes and burns when I shave, regardless if it’s a new or old (or some where inbetween) razor and no matter the type of shaving cream/gel/soap.

I’m probably going to the store and trying a new one today so I’ll let you know how that goes. 😉 I’m with you on the sensitive skin. Waxing is horrid for me, I always get broken blood vessels under my skin. I think everyone’s skin is different though, it may just take trial and error to find something that works for you. I think I’d recommend nads for legs but not for a place as sensitive as armpits or bikini line…. my experience with those places and nads was terrible!

@SimplyChic11: It’s similar to Nad’s but having used both, worlds apart –
It doesn’t use cloth strips to pull the wax up, instead the wax hardens slightly and you can grab it by a corner. It gives long-lasting, smooth results. That said, it still hurts! So I’ve only done it 3-4 times before, and popped ibuprofen beforehand.
What I actually use because I’m a wimp (and like @BetterSherm: I get awful razor burn) is this:
It’s cheap, compact and cute (I have the paisely print). It doesn’t get you smooth as a baby’s bottom, but you’d be surprised. And there’s no razor burn or fear of nicking a sensitive part. I think I got mine from CVS.

I tried veet today and liked it a lot: didn’t get that nasty burn feeling I did with nair. still… only 80% or so of the hair was removed, I’m planning on doing it again in a day or two to get the rest.
That little shaver looks neat! I’ll have to keep my eye out for that.

@SimplyChic11: Veet! I knew there was another one I tried. I thought my legs would burn off. Too strong for me.
