dh laughed at mine this morning and asked if i was saving the rainforests!

But the last 3 times ive shaved it (waxing and then cream removal) its left me really spotty, and i mean large unattractive spots like teenagers get on their face.

So how do you do yours? Is there any way to guarantee no spots?

Jessicaalbastwin Sat 15-Oct-11 22:28:49

I shave mine, and I do still get very tiny little spots sometimes, but last time I had it waxed I nearly died, Im such a wimp, I hate pain.,

I hope you walloped him one.

mosschops30 Sat 15-Oct-11 22:32:00

Do you shave it with a normal razor?

Grumpla Sat 15-Oct-11 22:36:46

Book him a back sac & crack wax pronto.

Or save time and money by simply telling him to fuck off.

Seriously, what is it with all this pruning waxing labioplasty nonsense? If a man can't deal with female genitalia in all their natural (and sometimes furry) variations, he's probably a crap shag anyway.

At the risk of incurring the wroth of the afro-bush brigade (remember this is S&B please) stop doing it yourself and get it waxed.

I had my first wax 2 weeks ago. Landing strip style. It barely hurt (honestly-more an oddly satisfying ripping sensation).

I am awed by the results. It's unbelievably smooth and I (note 'I' not DP) love love LOVE how it feels both on an everyday basis and a sexual one.

As someone who used to shave it all....using 2 disposable razors at a time and having regrowth (plus ingrown hairs/rash) in a few days...it's amazing. 10 days later and still super smooth.

Or y'know alternatively.....he's abusing you by saying that and you should leave the bastard and live in a commune whittled of pubes hmm

I used to get terrible minge acne spots after shaving, until I saw a recommendation for Tend Skin - on here, possibly. It's basically alcohol that you splash on after shaving and it's incredibly good at keeping the spots at bay. I use it straight after shaving and a couple of days after, just once a day after the shower.

I stopped bothering trying to wax, as shaving is so much quicker and the Tend Skin keeps the skin nice.

<realises this sounds like an advert or that I'm a PR for the company. I'm not>

Lol, i hate being hairy, if i wasnt with dh id still want it hairless (or deffo less hairy than it is now).
Ive tried wzxing, and have even gone for the full monty, but it still leaves me spotty and looking like a plucked chicken, its so unattractive

catsareevil Sat 15-Oct-11 22:40:59

How are you doing it? From you OP it looks like shave, wax and cream removal?

mosschops30 Sat 15-Oct-11 22:41:46

dearprudence so do you shave with a regular razor then splash that stuff on? Where can i get it?

mosschops30 Sat 15-Oct-11 22:42:41

I normally have a wax, but it started to make me spotty so changed to hair removing cream, which has made me even more spotty!

Grumpla Sat 15-Oct-11 22:46:19

I don't think you could whittle a commune from pubes. Maybe knit one, if enough MNers were prepared to donate theirs. Some sort of pube-yurt settlement perhaps?

But in order to harvest enough for a commune, we'd all have to shave our fanjos anyway.

I still don't think a bare, spotty fifteen-year-old's chin / plucked chicken look sounds sexier than a bit of fur.

dearprudence Sat 15-Oct-11 22:49:16

Yep. Regular razor, then splash on. You can get it on Amazon.

I used to home wax, but got lots of ingrown hairs and I never managed to get all of them. I hate pampering and being messed about with, so have never fancied salon wax. I own an epilator but wouldn't dare put this on my ladies' area. So back to shaving for me.

You do get a kind of hot, tingly sensation when you put it on, but I actually quite like it. grin

You need to exfoliate to avoid the spots.

mosschops30 Sat 15-Oct-11 22:54:50

fuzzy more info please smile

BunnyLebowski Sat 15-Oct-11 23:01:41

Awright Grumpla I meant a hut rather than a commune. And lol at pube-yurt grin.

Fwiw mine is nothing at all like a 'bare, spotty fifteen-year-old's chin / plucked chicken' but I can see how the spotiness might irk.

'If a man can't deal with female genitalia in all their natural (and sometimes furry) variations, he's probably a crap shag anyway.'

The above is utter bullshit by the way. Yes-If a man moans about or refuses to have sex with someone with a hairy fanjo then he's clearly got issues and is therefore a crap shag. If a man who is an awesome shag in a healthy and happy and mutually curious sexual relationship finds he gets excited and aroused at the new found sexual sensitivity and orgasmic potential often experienced when a woman has a wax then no....he's not a crap shag.

fuzzywuzzy Sat 15-Oct-11 23:04:07

I epilate, usually afterwards whenever I shower I exfoliate with an exfoliating glove, you can also get an aftercare cream which prevents ingrowing hairs from boots. But I've never needed these creams.

This is what you are after!

Helltotheno Sun 16-Oct-11 12:35:57

greedygoose does the bikini trimmer not leave spots too?

Salon waxing is all well and good but it might be expensive for people to have that done on a regular basis. For me, I just can't be arsed with the regrowth before having to get it done because of swimming etc.

Epilator is great for the calves, but sheer unadulterated hell on the bikini line, and that's without even going in any further shock

greedygoose Sun 16-Oct-11 15:35:07

Hellto I think it's brilliant - I do maintenance weekly - just go short all over with the graded comb thingy then take off to shave bikini line gets really close and no spots! Saves a fortune on Salon....

Small Tip
Don't take it all off ladies
Probaly an optical illusion but it makes your hips look wider if completely bare
