I use the Venus with the built-in shaving cream gel stripes for shaving my legs.

Everything else is waxed off.

Waxing.

Gives the smoothest, clearest results, and the results last long... about a month.

I have had sooo much trouble with this topic for so long. My friend and I were discussing this and we went and bought some of that Nair foaming gel shit or whatever. It did not work. Well, it works on patches, but leaves hair in other patches. It's altogether weird. I don't know if I'm doing it wrong, but I've done it numerous times. And so I have tried Veet, the kind with the little razor shaped scraper. It didn't do much for me.

SO I bought a homemade waxing kit. It doesn't have the strips. You just peel off the wax once it's slightly hardened. It worked somewhat, but the hair has to be JUST the right length. And I won't even get into the trouble I had with it in other areas. SO much trouble!

I want to get waxed, but for me the issue is money and also finding someplace around where I live that does it. I would honestly love to find a better solution than shaving, which I hate because it bothers me to do it EVERY day and if I don't, I get bumps and shit. It's just bleh!

Ok, first of all...Nair smells like...I don't even know how to put it into words! And second of all Nair gives me rashes and just burns like hell.

So, yes, I prefer shaving.

eyebrow wax and shave the rest, too sensitive otherwise.

I have my eyebrows threaded. Really like the way they turn out and it's not that painful!

pluck eyebrows, shave pits and legs(not as often as I should) . Nair or Veet for special occassions . . . . and nothing for the 'tache, I'm blonde and in denial.

and that's more about me than even my Mother knows. . . .


Nair and Veet are great and don't smell too bad. They leave you silky smooth but you have to use it properly. Shaving leaves you dry and stubbly the next day. Waxing hurts too much and my sensitive skin reacts badly.

I sometimes wish it was the 70's so we could all be unashamedly hairy

Forgot to mention that I have my eyebrows waxed. I admit that it's painful at the time but it doesn't really hurt afterwards...just tingling...

Threading is definitely the best for eyebrows.

but don't you have to wait until the hairs are long-ish, like for waxing?

I go every 3 weeks which gives them just enough time to grow out a little bit.

I don't go that often. I pluck mine for about 5-6 weeks in between threading sessions because once the eyebrows are shaped, you can maintain it yourself.

Another alternative to waxing, but which can be hard to find, is sugaring. It's like waxing but using a sugar/lemon solution, 1000s of years old and from the Middle East, it's finding someone who does it which is a pain. But it doesn't hurt like waxing does.
