I have been waxed you know where twice. Once for my honeymoon and once years later when I purchased a groupon for a deal that couldn't be passed up. Both times I left asking myself what type of self-hatred issues I must have to put myself through such medieval torture. But after the traumatics have worn off, I've been pleased with the results. It's long lasting, clean cut, and sessy ;-)
Aileen over at makeup and beauty blog, Shades of U (and creator of Sonoran, a beautiful new dark coral lipglass for the MAC Bloggers Obsession collection), posted an article from totalbeauty.com featuring some interesting facts about waxing.
#3 regarding cleanliness (or lack thereof) totally makes me want to puke!
#9 about being overly dramatic about the pain makes me wonder if maybe I haven't met the right waxer yet. Because that crap hurts!!! Right up there with childbirth lol! And I have a high tolerance for pain. I don't scream or anything but there has definitely been some flinching, wincing, and a few tears escaping from my eyeballs.
And #12 definitely caught me by surprise. For me, double-dipping is a definite yuck! And most of the commenters agree. Hmmm...
