Eyeing silky smooth perfection?
It comes with excruciating pain! Clean for the boyfriend or a weekend beach run, the hot waxy business isn’t for everyone. If it freakin’ hurts and you’re a wax-virgin yet, read before you switch to the razor-upgrade. 10 women reveal the truth about the ordeal’s sting scale!
1. MS. BODY LOTION, 20 YRS
“Ever been slapped? Yes? Waxing is ten times worse. But that’s still bearable. The horror story begins when you apply body mist or body lotion because that’s when it slowly starts to kill you.“
2. MS. HARRY POTTER-OBSESSED, 23 yrs
“Waxing is like a dementor’s kiss- it sucks you off all the happiness. Clearly not for the light-hearted!”
3. MS. SEVEN SHOTS QUEEN, 22 YRS
“Its like downing flaming vodka shots. They put you through utter discomfort in the throat but eventually leave you beautiful! I mean, doesn’t every girl look gorgeous after getting drunk? To men, of course.”
4. MS. WAR-RETURN, 24 YRS
“If your very first injection was the real deal breaker, I suggest you stay away from getting waxed. Hair being pulled ruthlessly to perfection isn’t very pleasant. It’s like going to war- prepare yourself before you return a wreck, or maybe don’t!”
5. MS. SERIAL KILLER, 21 YRS
“Its painful and really hurts. I’ve never had a chance, so here’s a message for my beloved waxing lady- I’ll be back. Just to murder you. In cold blood.”
6. MS. CAUTIOUS SOUL, 30 YRS
“Get over the pain, the whole process can be hilarious sometimes. A lot many times the waxing lady can accidentally drop hot wax on you (could be anywhere on your body), just unfortunately you still have to maintain a pleasant face and be super-nice to her. Why? The same lady waxes your upper lip and eyebrows, you clearly don’t want to walk out of the salon with two differently-shaped brows!”
7. MS. IMPATIENT, 25 YRS
“That three-second wait till the hot wax hits you can be lethal. Post that, its a level of pain that can block everything out. But if you’re willing to take the chance, the view from the other side is spectacular- you feel simply perfect.”
8. MS. HEARTBROKEN, 27 YRS
“Ever been through a break-up? Then you’ve clearly been waxed. It’s painful but once you get over it, it feels great!”
9. MS. PROFESSIONAL, 30 YRS
“Getting waxed for me is oddly relaxing. You turn away from rest of the world, focus on getting the arduous task done with and move on to feeling fresh, clean, sexy and happy! I am definitely pro-waxing.”
10. MS. I CAN’T TAKE IT, 23 YRS
“Imagine a bunch of ants going berserk all over you- that’s what it is. The stickiness the wax leaves behind feels like you’ve just been rubbed with chocolates/sweets all over. Eww!”
