The Woes of Hair Removal

August 08, 2013

Just like every girl out there hair removal is probably up there as one of the most annoying weekly tasks but it's something we have to do, our legs won't stay silky smooth on their own!
Unfortunately these aren't my legs :( Image source.
With the beautiful weather that has graced the UK recently, I have had my bare legs on show most days as it is has been far too hot to be covering them up, which has meant I have had to really keep up with making sure my legs are suitable to be on show. Now when it comes to hair removal there are plenty of options and different methods out there and I thought i'd just talk about my thoughts and experiences with them!

All in all shaving is my go to method of removing hair, it's what I have always done and I always have an endless supply of those cheap crappy razors, which some people don't really rate as it is easy to accidentally cut your legs whilst shaving but I get on just fine with them. Even though shaving is pretty easy to do, it only leaves my legs feeling smooth for about a day and I can get away with about two days in between shaving which is super annoying especially if i've fake tanned because shaving basically strips it off.

Believe it or not but I have never ever waxed, I don't know why but i've just never felt the need to I guess. I just don't like the idea of my hair being yanked out of legs, I mean plucking my eyebrows is painful enough! Also with waxing, you have to wait for your hair to grow to a certain length, which I just can't be dealing with. Maybe one day i'll give waxing a go but for now i'll opt for shaving.

Now I know what you're thinking, the smell! Yes, hair removal cream really does stink especially Nair but I found one by Veet that smells of Jasmine which isn't actually that bad. I don't normally opt for hair removal cream, but I have found it to work quite well. Just slap it on, leave it for three minutes and wash it off, job done.

I think every girl out there wishes that they can have laser hair removal, the thought of permanent hair removal just brings me excitement. For those who don't know laser hair removal is a safe and virtually painless way of removing unwanted hair and it works by using a laser beam that is aimed towards the base of the hair follicle and stops the hair growing. Laser hair removal is usually associated with celebrities, the Kardashians swear by it and just imagine having smooth, hairless legs for the rest of your life!

What methods do you use for hair removal?

    1. Thanks! I really want to try it, but the price puts me off. Maybe in a few years! xx

  2. Id really love to try laser hair removal but its so expensive! I think the easiest way to do it is just shaving really. I find that cream is far too messy and waxing hurts like a mother although i do go for a wax before I go on holiday, just to save me the time of doing it everyday!


    1. Haha, yea it is kinda messy but shaving, for me is the easiest! xx

  3. I would love to try laser hair removal too, would be so much easier! x

  4. I've never been for a wax either, the idea of having to grow my leg hair for three weeks horrifies me!
    I wish laser hair removal was cheaper, I would so be on that!
