Good saying, but we all like to feel beautiful on the outside too.
I recently lost 30 pounds due to divorce, I don't suggest that diet, but I am now healthy and feel great. I've always been plain and simple with my looks. Just eyeliner. I literally get ready for work in fifteen minutes or less everyday. Since everything, I've tried new things, just like the saying I like to use, 'YOLO, but in a Godly way.' I bought makeup, hair accessories, stuff I have no clue how to put on or use, etc!! One being an epilator. Heard of it? I haven't until a few weeks ago when a good friend told me about it. Two words, life changer. Seriously.
***Before and after, less than a year apart.
I bought an epilator at my local drug store, Walgreens. I bought the Remington brand because it was the only brand they had, and I knew of the brand because of their amazing hair products (curling irons, hair dryers, etc).
When I turned on the epilator, it scared me. I even snapped (snapchat - kristi37) my friend and told her what is she thinking. Is this a torture device? I was worried about the pain and pinching of my skin. I read the directions, and then just went for it! YOLO!!
Was not bad at all! Yes, the first contact was a scare, but after a little, you get use to it. The more you use it, the less you can feel the epilation. Towards the end of my first use, I ended up liking the feeling. Weird, I know. I started with my underarms, and then my legs.
My hair has not grown back and it's been a couple of weeks. This is great! I'm on vacation and don't have to worry about packing a razor, or shaving cream, don't have to pack the Remington Epilator either! On the box it says "leaving you smooth and silky for up to 6 weeks." Another plus, since it plucked my hair, it will grow back thinner the more times you use it!
I've always been paranoid about underarm hair. Just going a day or two can have a 'shadow,' so the Remington Epilator has helped with my insecurities - sounds hardcore, but I was insecure with pictures, wearing short sleeve shirts, etc. Also, with my new love for outdoor adventures, I don't have to worry about shaving during my camping/backpacking trips. No more checking my underarms or having to wear leggings during those, 'did I shave my legs recently?,' days!
Let me know if you have an epilator! How was/is your experience?
