Good evening and Happy Hump Day to all.

Has anyone tried Veet waxing strips for their arm pit hairs? Does it hurt bad?

How long between waxings?

Thank you for your help.

I haven't tried the Veet version, but I have the done armpit waxing before. It's not bad, really. At least it's not nearly as painful as private part waxing..for what it's worth! I think the best advice I've heard is not to let the hair grow too long between waxes. Good luck!

The first times hurt the worst and then it gets less and less painful each time you wax. I think the armpit is the least painful, then comes legs and then the privates are like.. oh god.

I've tried the waxing strips in the past, twice, once for underarms/legs and once for facial hair. I find that sometimes the wax sticks to the skin in some areas and doesn't rip out all of the hairs.. So you have to go over a few times. I think normal wax is better and cheaper too. I used the peel off wax instead of those white waxing strips.

I think I used to wait about 3 weeks between waxing underarms, so way better than shaving..

You can order a spray or cream online (unless you are brave and have a porn shop close by) that is basically lidocaine. It's the stuff for men to last longer...:-P. But makes waxing the privates much less painful.

I am sure it works on legs too. Never waxed my armpits, assumed it would hurt way too bad. Funny, I thought it would hurt worse than a Brazilian. LoL

I think waxing myself is much more painful than going to a salon too!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
