Waxing, epilating, shaving… there are so many different methods of hair removal that it’s hard to know which one will be right for you. But don’t worry – we’ve given them all a go, so you don’t have to.

 

 

If shaving brings you out in a rash, this could be just the hair-removal method for you. Apply the cream to dry legs, allow a minute to dry, followed by a further 3-6 minutes while you’re in the shower – then scrape off. The cream works on very short hair, which means you don’t have to live with awkward-length leg fuzz. The only downside? If your bathroom’s chilly, the one-minute waiting time seems a LOT longer…

There seems to be an irrational fear of wax strips, which we’re here to dispel. Get to grips with the strip and you’ll have the joy of fur-free legs for up to four weeks. Wax strips are also a no-brainer if you suffer from shaving rash. The strips are effective on super-short hair and can be used on legs, underarms and bikini line. If you find you’re a slave to the shave, it may take a while to adjust to the extra time you need to put in with DIY waxing.
