    body shop wax strips are usually used for the leg but if you cut them up they are ok, i think its sugar wax as well so its a little better for your skin

    I agree Veet leg strips are rubbish, they hardly take away any of the hair! Perhaps try using a hot wax, rather than ready to use strips? I've heard Veet warm wax is meant to be good but I can't find it on Superdrug or Boots or anything! http://www.superdrug.com/Waxing/NAIR...IA/invt/463639 This might be okay though

    For something like bikini line I would ALWAYS go to a salon, even if you've had good experiences doing home waxing on your legs. The skin down there is just so much more sensitive! Even at the salon I go to it only costs €4,30 to have my bikini line done (with a €10 a month subscription), and I'd say that on the whole, fashion, health and beauty prices in France are more expensive than Britain, not cheaper, so I can't believe that you wouldn't be able to find a British salon that charges reasonable prices, even if it's just a training salon.
