I have been using Veet hair removal cream for many years now. Please don't believe the urban myths that it will frazzle your knackers. It's not true!
My chest hair grew back within a day or two and was very prickly. After researching waxing V sugaring, I chose the former mainly because it's more widely available. I often travel out of London from Euston Station and lunch in Drummond Street way too often in the great value Indian buffet restaurants.
I noticed a shop there called Natural Herbs and saw that they offered massage and waxing services, so I thought I would try them. Here's my review.
One day last week, I had some time to kill before my train from Euston and decided to opt for a wax rather than my usual Indian buffet.
It was around midday, and the accommodating receptionist said she could fit me in as they had just had a cancellation.
I asked if she could do the whole body, including the intimate areas, and she said no problem; she does for men and women.
She explained that she would do strip waxing for the main parts of the body and hot wax for the more intimate areas. She also explained to me that they use professional products for the best results for the customer. My treatment room was fit for purpose with a massage couch to lie on and wax heaters at the end of the sofa. My treatment started with me lying on my front, and the back was the first to be de-furred. This was a pretty painless operation, to be honest. Arms and legs followed, and then it was time to turn over.
Now was the time for the hot wax. My therapist explained to me the reasons why she uses this for intimate areas.
The hot wax going on seemed a lot hotter than the strip wax. And those short moments, while the therapist waits for the wax to harden, are a bit like sitting in the dentist's chair. You are sure you will be hurt, and you brace yourself. But to be honest, it's not that painful.
After the treatment, my therapist administered some cooling post-wax cream which was very cooling.
And the results. Well, two weeks on, the hair regrowth has been much slower than with cream—especially the coarse chest hairs which have grown back much softer and less rough.
I plan to go back in two weeks and see how the regrowth goes then
I must say it was an excellent professional service, and I would recommend
