    Sounds like you have dry skin, Melinda. Have you tried putting lotion on after shaving?

    P.S. - You're very lucky to only have to shave from the knees down.

    Melinda - We have the same name! Most people call me Mindy, which is why my signature says that, but my real name is Melinda.

    Just thought I'd tell you, since a person doesn't mean too many Melinda's.

    I have tried alot of products. Nads never worked for me, wax never worked, but hurt like hell. Nair burned the heck out of my legs one time when I used it. It was like having a really bad case of sunburn on my legs. I would love to do the laser treatments so that I would not have to shave anymore, but I just can't seem to justify using that kind of money just so that I don't have to shave. I would like to know what I can do for the stray hairs on my chin. I tweeze them now, but my chin is always sore and they don't ever seem to go away. I can tweeze just about every day and pull one or more out of my chin. I wanted to try that new thing on tv I saw The Tweezie. Wonder if it will work better. I know I hate all those creams and stuff. They just never seem to work right.

    I use an epillator. I've used it for about 2 years now and my leg hairs come in light coloured and soft. I only use it 2x a month now, the hair just doesn't seem to grow very fast anymore. I did hurt the first couple times I used it but doesn't really bother me anymore. I use it for my bikini line too, but if I went bald I wouldn't use it for all of it.

    I'm a Korean/Mexican blend so my hair grows fast, dark and is coarse- UGH! I shave legs, armpits, girly area. Get my eyebrows waxed twice a month-and tweeze about everyday in between waxes. I stop tweezing about 4 days before my scheduled wax. I don't like Nair-it just seemed to kill the hair and leave it attached to my leg.

    I have a friend that did laser hair removal on his face because he was tired of shaving everyday for the military. After 4 sessions he didn't want to spend anymore money and ended up with a few bald patches where it did work. He got this done in 2004 and within the past year the bald patches grew back in.

    I wish there was just a nuisance hair removal pill-that would solve all of our problems!

    there's a product called Vaniqua. it's a creme. supposed to rub it on your facial hair and it'll go away
    takes like six mos to start working, and even then, it didn't work for me. but it might with other ladies. talk to your doc, it's perscription...

    EEPS! I think if you're going to wax your *unmentionables* do it at least 2 wks before your significant is due to return in case of reactions and rashes...gives em time to heal. I dont think I could ever do that down there, waxing my calves hurt waaaay too much, forget about moving further up the leg!

    I think the European gals have the right idea! Leave it alone!!

    Why do we north Americans submit ourselves to such barbarics? LOL. If all North America women stopped, then the guys would just deal with it and get over it. Ah the money saved, the times saved, teh pain spared...lol.

    Ok, back from lala land.

    I wax my eyebrows, and save everything else.


    Thought about brazillion waxing, but I think dh would flip at the thought of me paying some one for that, and I'm not a masochist. So went no further.

    Save my legs when I need to where skirts or shorts, i get razor burn too bad. Terribly dry skin due to thyroid disease.

    I just got the the eze tweeze off ebay, and it's the same as the Tweezie, I think. It works like threading. It's this spring thingie shaped in a "U" that you hold up against your skin and twist the ends. It works pretty well with the longer hairs, but I had some trouble getting it to pick up the chin hairs. Maybe they were too short, or bad angle.

    I like it...I have lots of peach fuzz on my cheeks and upper lip that is darkening with age. This takes care of this well.
