I have tried the creams, lotions, potions and every thing in between. I have been sugaring for over two years now and will never go back. Nice and smooth for two weeks, a week of stubble and back to smooth! My wife does the same. (I introduced her to it) As for the blade...way to short and there is always a bit of stubble.
That being said, I have been known to "touch up" between apointments.
The majority of non-textilers are hairless. No one cares if your not, no one judges. I've done shaving-razor burn, ingrown hairs, and then scarring from the ingrowns; Magic powder-rash and SWELLING; Waxing-works good and dosen't hurt so bad if you have a good estetitian (I know I spelled it wrong) but still had the ingrown hair problem; Laser-LOVE IT! And it's all gone with no more shaving or ingrown hairs. Did the underarms while I was at it. American Laser sells it as a package of 6 treatments and a 2 year guarantee. It did take me all 6 (little over 1 yr) and treatments over the whole 2 yrs (free with the guarantee) but it's worth it.
I found an epilator by googling the word. I did research on reviews and found one that was reasonably priced and had a reputation for not hurting, and it catches and removes the hairs when the hair is very very short. I use it on legs, armpits, and personal areas but like it best for my armpits and personal areas. I tried waxing but it was way too painful, and I can't afford laser.
I use an epilator. It removes the hair like waxing only it hurts much less. I use it everywhere, but I think it works best on the bikini area and underarms. Google the word and you will find there are many out there. I found one that the reviews all said hurt less than the others. I think I paid about $60?
