Hi

Just wondering if anyone on here can help me? I want to start waxing my legs and underarms but I have no idea where to start or what to look for? I currently shave every other day (partly because my legs itch like crazy if I don't but mostly because I have really dark hair and really pale skin!) and I'd really rather not have to do that! Also, I seem to be in a phase where I cut myself whilst shaving a lot and it hurts

Can anyone recommend any products? I want something relatively cheap- I'm a poor student :P but something that will work. I've tried creams before but all they did was cause a reaction, even after I'd tested them!

Thanks

Epilator is best. I haven't used one for a while (what can I say- poor pain threshold) but the results do last. Plus you won't have to keep buying wax/waxing strips etc. You can get them for under £30. BRAUN do a decent one.

I tried those veet wax strips and they were awful! i followed the instructions, etc... but when it came to ripping it off a tiny bit of hair came off but then just left all the sticky crap on my leg which was such a hassle to get off.

I'll definitely like some advice on products too!

Haha I know right!
What I do is just use their little wiping tissue thing with that oily substance, helps get the sticky stuff off

epilators HURT! It's like rubbing broken glass into your skin!

best to do waxing legs with a girlfriend, other people get a better result than doing it yourself. For bikini line get yourself good tweezers and pluck! Armpits I have only ever had done by a professional, but its something you can do with a friend (but ouch!)

Look into sugaring; it's almost exactly the same as waxing except you use a water, lemon juice and sugar paste thing. Just make sure you're near a sink and you have at least an hour or two to do it. You get used to the technique really quickly, plus it doesn't hurt as much as waxing does. I did my legs and arms last night and I couldn't stop rubbing my legs together. I love love looooooooooove it.
