I use Moom to wax my legs. It’s actually a sugar, not a wax. It washes off easily, and the strips are washable and reusable. I get it from amazon and I think it’s reasonably priced.

I only use it in the fall / winter when I can get away with the regrowth. I shave in the summer. I know you’re not really supposed to switch back and forth, but I don’t have any problems with it.

bubbly2018 :  I used to wax using the readymade wax strips but the steps were small and I found it too be too much work doing it myself. I liked what they did at the salon but that was too expensive and inconvenient.

I tried an epilator too but found that time consuming as well and a little painful for my legs as I have coarse hair but it works great for my arms with some minor pain. I use Phillips Satinelle.

Now I just shave my legs and underarms. I get a lot of ingrown hair on my legs because of that but I’d rather deal with that than the time it takes to wax it epilate. For the bikini area, I use a bikini trimmer. I’m looking into laser treatment for just my underarms as I shave it a lot more frequently than my legs.

bubbly2018 :  I’ve done bikini waxes at home before I did laser hair removal. It was great during the summer!
