you can use immac and they do one just for the bikini area....i have used it and its been fine.

I use a eplilady for EVERYWHERE ... it takes some getting used to but it doesn't bother me now.

I hate shaving it seems so pointless when it only lasts a day.

I too use an Epilady and have done so for years. I hardly have any hair left now, it is worth persisting with.

I used to use a Boots' own depilatory cream for sensitive skin before I graduated to waxing from which day incidentally, I've never looked back.

I think the thought of having any intimate bits or any other bits for that matter waxed for the first time is actually quite daunting, but tbh, it's not that painful ... it just takes a bit of getting used to that's all. Besides that, waxing is far more effective than shaving and doesn't need to be done so often.

waxing has come a long and the waxes used for bikini lines etc are not as eye watering as people may think. i would find a good therapist and have it done atleast once, at least it lasts a few weeks! Hths

Couldnt agree more...waxing IMO is the most effective,and as April says try it once.

There are many good waxes now on the market...

I have many clients who are scared of bikini or underarm waxing,and i use Australian bodycare.

However after the wax is stripped off i get so many clients who say..."gosh that wasnt so painful after all!!":green:
