there's a reason people go to salons to get waxed... there's a bit of a learning curve involved.
my first waxing experience in a salon was horrible - i wound up "crooked" and had to go back the next day to have it fixed after my skin had calmed down - so much for running home and surprising my boyfriend of the time. i was terribly self-conscious of my crooked vag-hawk.
folks, i am of middle eastern/mediterranean descent - i am a fairly hairy girl, and the hair i'm most interested in removing resides in the bikini area. needless to say it is abundant and COARSE. i also have, sometimes, two hairs growing from one pore there.
anyway... maybe TMI, but i did my first Moom last night - i might be a sick person but i actually enjoyed it so much i wound up giving myself a Brazilian - i was just amazed at how well it worked. Moom works like wax but what a joy, you can wash it right off with water and all the tools are reusable. i woke up silky smooth - no bumps, no whiteheads, and now, am just about to put the finishing touches on the job (when i said there's a learning curve, i meant it - i did NOT do a perfect job either, and going back over something twice in one go isn't so great for your skin, fantastic organic product or not - for better or for worse, this time there's no boyfriend to see my mess-up at the moment).
