True story. I went to Hawaii for a week and didn’t take any sort of hair removal device. Crazy, right? It’s still blowing my mind that I don’t have hair under my arms anymore. I had my second laser hair removal about 2 weeks before I left, even though the hair hadn’t grown back from the first session. The laser was a little bit stronger second time around so it hurt a fraction more, but not to the point where it was unbearable. Besides, it’s only five minutes of pain and I just kept reminding myself the whole time ‘no more hair, no more hair, NO MORE HAIR’.
It was also pretty nice being able to throw on a bikini every day and not having to worry about strays (y’know what I’m talking about). I waxed my legs before I left (am I oversharing yet? ) but I also have an at home IPL that I’m trialling at the moment – I’ll let you know what I think soon. That all said, I’m actually considering lasering my legs. Has anyone done this? I imagine it would be well worth it, but it takes about 45 minutes, and 5-mins of pain vs 45-mins is a huge difference.
While I’ve got you – don’t forget you can get discounted laser hair removal just for being awesome. If you’re a Sydney reader and you head into Leah’s Waxworks in Mid City Centre, mention Stuff That I Bought and you’ll get $10 off any treatment valued over $50. The deal is valid until September 1st, 2011, so plenty of time to get hairless before summer.
(side note: I’m sticking with the Leah’s logo because it’s really hard to find an appropriate image to go with a hair removal post)
