Hahaha. I can't take full credit because I did wax for years before I switched, so my hair growth was reduced or weakened and somehow it didn't hurt. I remember doing it with a scary 8 shaped twisty coil when I was a teenager and that hurt too much so I gave up. Also, I am drunk like most the time so that makes life easier hehe.
I have to say when I first did my armpits I wept and bled. But now I can even do the old map of Tasmania without flinching.
My friend epilates and she has legs like the Venus advert women so I thought I'd give it a go. Turns out she just has incredibly good legs. My shins bled and had red lumps for days. Turns out I don't have incredibly good legs.
