What hair removal cream do you all use for your downstairs lady parts?

Is there any I should avoid before doing a patch test??

I could never use a cream shock
I usually shave, have been using my Lumea and it is much better now.

I just trim mine tbh using Scissors and an electric lady shave

Hot wax
Bodyscrub first, make sure area is dry, apply talc.

Cut the strips in half length ways.
Wax on
Wax off
Use a TeaTree skinwash to take off any stray wax and antibacterial.

Keep the skin tight, job done.
Don't do it the day before your holiday like what I did it takes a couple of days to settle.

I use elec shaver but the regrowth is fiddly.... Is cream a bad idea?

I thought talc'ing down there was an utter no-no now we know more about how much of a shitbag it is?

I use veet . it's brilliant but wear a pair of old knickers if you don't want to go bald grin

Nair sensitive, prob 25 years of use now and it leaves silky soft skin behind. Be careful of time as even if 1 or 2 mins longer it can be sore. If timed perfectly then its perfect.

I used to use Veet, I don't now for 2 reasons. First, if you accidently put too much on and it goes inside, you will know about it for a few weeks. Secondly, it made the hair grown back much thicker and coarser.

So now I wax (when I get around to it).

I thought talcing down there was a nono

It's just a dusting to make the skin as dry as possible then the wax works better. Same with armpits .

Yeah I get that it makes you drier and that's good for the wax, but that doesn't mean it's not a shitty nasty thing to put on yourself, esp down there.

I am in awe of those of you who can wax your own bikini lines, I leave it to the professionals when I can be arsed.

I have a friend who waxes her own armpits, which really makes me wince.
