I don’t understand why I haven’t learned my lesson yet!!! I have been using the Epilady Legend for over 6 months and for some silly reason I decided to go back to the salon and subject myself to a bikini wax yet again… There must be some inexplicable reason why I subject myself to pain… I think I need some serious psyotherapy for this issue, don’t you agree? Why would anyone voluntarily agree to lay down on a table, allow a stranger to pour hot wax on their private parts and then allow them to tear it off??? Yikes, just typing the words is sending me into a painful tizzy LOL.
I’m going on vacation with my husband and children and popped into a salon in the neighborhood, stripped down naked and subjected myself to the most excruciatingly painful bikini wax I have ever had. Don’t bother feeling sorry for me because I should have known better. I sound like my mother who always seems to remember to say: “I told you so!” It’s as if she takes pleasure in letting me know I made a mistake, especially if I have done it over and over again. That’s a hot topic for another day. I can entertain you with mother ~ daughter stories forever but today it is about my bikini. I’m definitely switching back to my Epilady which removes even the shortest and finest hair by the root and leaves my skin smooth for up to 4-6 weeks. I probably shouldn’t be sharing such personal information with you but my private parts have been as smooth as a baby’s bum since I started using my Epilady. I must have been having a senior moment when I walked into the salon. I can assure you that will never happen again. You had to see the looks on the other customers faces when I walked out of the room. The shrieks they heard coming out of the waxing room will surely be the talk of the town for a long time to come. LOL…
Ladies, I don’t know about you but I find bikini waxing to be excruciatingly painful. In fact, it was so painful for me that I went to the doctor for a prescription for numbing cream. Numbing cream and all, I still could not bear the pain. I am by no means a coward – I have given birth to 4 children without anesthesia but if I was having a bikini wax you could hear me screaming in the next town LOL. That being said, I gave up waxing a few months ago and switched back to shaving. We all know that after we shave, it does not feel as smooth as after a wax. I have many friends who had laser treatment to remove their hair from almost their entire body. From what they told me, that is also very, very painful and some of my friends and family have suffered severe burns from laser treatment. Besides being painful, laser treatment is extremely costly and I am not in a position to spend that kind of money. I was hoping that my hair would grow less as I get older but that hasn’t happened so far. My BFF Lucrecia told me about Epilady Legend from Rush Industries. She received one as a gift for Christmas and swears by it. I told her that I had bought one back in the 80s and it was like a medieval torture device. She assured me that the new Epilady Legend is fabulous and far less painful than waxing, threading, laser or electrolysis. Last week was my birthday and she surprised me with one. Needless to say, I was a bit disappointed and pessimistic, after all, what kind of friend buys you a torture device? I have to tell you that I was quite pleasantly surprised. The new Epilady Legend is faster and smoother. It removed even the shortest and finest hair by the root and left my skin feeling as smooth as a baby’s bum. I couldn’t thank her enough. I no longer have to worry about painful and irritating bikini waxes at the salon and will be saving a huge amount of money! Thank you Lucrecia, you never disappoint me. What would I do without a BFF like you???
PS I also love how I can do quick touch-ups on my way out the door if necessary. I couldn’t do that with wax or any of the other hair removal treatments.
