Hello! So lately, I’ve been trying to find PAINLESS (is that possible?? ) ways to remove hair besides shaving; armpit hair, facial hair, leg, bikini line etc. Here some things I’ve used in the past and my experiences:
1) Epilator: a little machine with little tweezers that pluck hair as you run it up and down your legs, arms, armpits, etc.
*tried this and can only use it on days where I’m feeling adventurous enough to endure this pain. LOL
2) Tweezers: I’m fine using this on eyebrows. Yesterday I used it for my underarms and surprisingly it was fine!! I’ve also tried a few hairs on the bikini line and it seemed to be alright…Very time consuming though!
3) Wax: I waxed a patch of my leg once. Never again. Hurts like a @#$$%!!!
4) Nair: lotion that removes hair. Very painless but….I got an allergic reaction!! :S
Are there any other types of hair removal out there that are painless to semi-painful or do I just have to “suck it up, princess” like my friend tells me ?? Haha.

Have you tried veet? I wonder if it would give you the same allergic reaction as the Nair. Waxing your legs isn’t pleasant, but I know NADS gives you desensitizer wipes to use before you apply the wax and it does help. Getting them done by a professional and popping some advil or tylenol a half hour before your appt should help.

I epilate, I don’t find it painful. But what about shaving?

Veet and Nair both gave me nasty rashes and waxing hurts too much so I just shave. Zero pain provided I don’t nick myself. 🙂

@NehaPrasad92 I guess we have different levels of pain tolerance!You’re lucky! Yes, I meant besides shaving, because hair grows back so quickly after shaving!

I have nasty reactions to all depilitory creams, I hate shaving, waxing hurts, epilators cane and I cannot afford laser at the minute to offer a proper review. But pretty much everything hurts. Sorry!

@mzjodizzle: I find if I do a quick shave every day (even if I miss a small strip here and there, I’ll get it tomorrow) that it’s much easier to maintain. Bikini area I do every other day to avoid irritation but if you make it part of your routine you won’t notcie regrowth.
