Here is a rather unfortunate photo of me, your intrepid beauty experimenter, mere moments from having finished my very first ever, sooo terribly painful, awful horrible torturous bikini wax. And yes I’m standing up straight! In pants! And I even walked home!
Honestly, you’d think bikini waxes were like leg removal for all the hype surrounding them. And I’m being a little silly here, because actually, they’re not that bad. Are they that bad? No. Not at all. Are they painful though? Yes. Especially when you’re doing it yourself in your bathroom at 1AM. (Spoiler alert: don’t do it yourself in the bathroom at 1AM.) And then there are the weird rashes afterward. I mean, sometimes. But not all the time. Should we talk about this already? Let’s talk about this already.
For the purposes of this experiment, I decided to try one (1) full spa bikini wax experience, followed by one (1) full DIY bikini wax experience three weeks later. You know, to see how different they are, if at all, and worth the cost? And which hurts more? And etc and etc. After the jump!
