Yeah so I've never waxed any hair off of my body- I've always heard how bad it hurts and I figured, being that I'm a wuss, I shouldn't try it. Okay, so yesterday I got stuck in the cosmetics dept for hours on end (I work at Walmart and they made me cashier there). And I started wandering aimlessly and looking at all the nifty stuff. So I see these cold "washable" wax kits, and I figured why not? Can't be that painful...

So I take it home and I do the test patch and it gets a bit red and it hurts a little, but not for more than a second, and I figure I'm okay. So today (like 12 hrs after I tested it) I tried doing my legs. Yeah, well overall that didn't go well. Some hair came off- some stayed, it seemed like it took a year, and it hurt a lot worse today. So I stop and I say forget it- and just use the after treatment cream to stop the stinging. Well, low and behold do I look down and see these dark marks. I swear that stuff bruised me!! It like broke blood vessels or something, and it looks horrid. I was just wondering if anyone has had that bad of an experience with hair treatments, removal, dying etc... I want to know if I'm alone in my stupidity.

Why is it that we are at our most ingenius only when trying to destroy the things that keep us alive and thriving?

I'm finally healing!!!

And I really like that Venus razor- it works really well- and no more bruising.

Aww Jenn, I'm sorry it went so bad for you lol.

I never tried waxing my legs.  I remember in beauty school the eyebrows hurt enough LOL

I use Nair.. no nicks, no bleeding, no ripping the skin off your body.  It works ok for me.

As for epilady I swear it had to be a man's idea lol. The thing just looks painful!

i promise it wasn't a man's idea.
no really!
hear me out:
do you think any man would go along with having the hairs on his face yanked out by the roots?
errrrr,no.
but then, no thank you to that damn epilady thing in the first place, that thing doesn't look painful, it looks like some kind of medieval torture device.
yeeeeeeowtch.
HELL no.
ever notice that all the shaving devices devised by men in the last say 30 years involve not touching the skin with sharp objects? look at electric razors. "shaves as close as a blade" which means it isn't.
mkay then.
and the blades we DO use are designed to lift hair away from the face, making it far more difficult to actually nick yourself.

women's razors, however, (with the possible exception of Venus) never came out of the Dark Ages. why? dunno.
the real question, though, is with all the "non-ouchie" technology that's gone into men's shaving products, why don't more women just use them?
i mean really. have a Gillette Sensor Excel.
"it's smooooooth."

heh.
but really, that thing just looks nasty to me too - it's been a constant source of amazement for me that women actually buy that thing voluntarily.
icky.

don't come crying to ME when it pulls all your skin off.

it is discussions like these that make me very happy to be a man. i mean, granted, we don't get to do all those cool things with our hair and makeup and all that... but the only time a razor has ever come close to my legs was when i got shin splints in 9th grade and had to tape up to run. and believe me, it wasn't an epilady.

I tried an epilady...ONCE...it is very painful. I tried NADS...ONCE...made my legs bleed. I tried the epil-stop roll-on for facial hair....ONCE....felt like fire and burned my lip til it blistered. I will stick to razors thank you. My husband has one of those Gillette things that work quite well. I think I'll go buy me a Venus since it seems to work well with no nicks and hubby won't have to change his blades so often LOL.

There's the man I chose. There's my territory.....Shakira

Okay I am coming in the back door with a question here.  Why on earth would you hurt yourself like that - they make creams for all that now, takes less than 7 minutes max and whoosh gone, everywhere   OMG, that sounds totally painful like ripping a bandaid off your skins, NOT ME, no way would I do that!  No way!  Hope you are healing Jenn, and I would write the company and complain big time.

I am waiting for them to make something to take it all off (in all the places you want it gone )and so it doesn't HURT! I got the heated wax stuff, then my microwave died, I got to give it a go just to try it, and it didn't hurt too bad....but that was only one strip...how did it bruise you???? That is odd. I have never heard of that.YIKES! That nair stuff is rotten and does not work....if there is a cream that works and actually gets the hair off, TELL ME THE NAME...
I hate razors....

Funny I came across this thread.
Just last week I purchased a lady's electric wet/dry shaver and it's awesome.
You can get them now for around $50.00 and it' well worth the money spent,
and then some.

yowser...nothing like that ever happened to me...the only hair removal gone horribly wrong for me? was when they neglected to shave certain body hairs before my c-section for my second child. Yep, you guessed it, when they came to change the dressing for my stitches...well--I said, "just pull it quick" and then proceeded to laugh and cry at the same time!

smiling, but wincing at the memory...

I learned my lesson--so I guess you can sign me,

Just sitting here thinking of a friend of my brother's. Now, Roach (nickname from an incident involving a hardhat, cockroach, ceiling and open mouth) got good and drunk and found his mom's epi. On a dare from my brother, he touched it his _very_ hairy leg and turned it on. From what I hear tell, it sounded like velcro. Then the pain kicked in. He had a 2" x 8" smooth strip on the back of his calf for the longest time....

Alicat of the odd anecdote
