Now this seemed like a really good idea at the time. A home waxing kit. You can save hundreds of dollars over time by doing your own waxing. Got a fuzzy chin? Zip it off in the privacy of your own home. Got a little mustache going on? Take care of it yourself and save the $15 bucks you would pay at a salon. Need to wear a bathing suit on your vacation? Think you look a bit furry, and it isn't the look you are going for? Save yourself the embarrassment of having a stranger dealing with your hairy nether regions. Buy your own Home Waxing Kit!!!
First of all, it takes about 4 hours for the wax to melt and get to the right temperature. Second, that stuff is darn tricky to work with. If you aren't careful, that wax gets onto all sorts of things you would rather it didn't.
I tried the lip and chin area first. I used a teensy little Popsicle stick and managed not to burn myself with the wax, and got those pesky hairs right off in a quick flip of the wrist. Easy peasy, Bob's your uncle, I can do this! Pleased with my success, I decided to move on to shall we say, trickier areas.
Friends, I may have done myself permanent damage. The bikini area is delicate. Delicate. And I am only talking about the upper part of my inner thigh. I don't know what I did wrong, but I bruised the dickens out of myself. BIg purple spotty bruises that popped up instantly. I must not have been holding my flabby thigh skin down firmly enough or something. Owie, owie, owie, owie, owie.
Mercy. I won't be trying to wax that area on my own again. Oooh, man that hurt. I would show you a picture, but this is a family friendly blog.
Some things just should be left to the professionals.
I am just so thankful I didn't try to wax the area around my eyebrows. Can you imagine? Oh dear.
