I always get XXX when I visit the beautician, however I have seen some DIY kits. I was wondering if anyone has done this at home themselves?

  • I usually get it done at beautician too but thought I’d try DIY to try save. DISASTER is all I can say. It went so wrong. I’m never going to try again but wish you the best.

  • I have waxed with sugar wax which doesn’t work for me (fabric strips)
    and with self setting wax.

    However I have not gone as far as xxx the self setting wax works well.

  • Supermarket wax is soluble and any residue washes of with water. Not like what they use in salon. So it’s important to have the area free from any oils. Add talcun powder to absorb moisture and when applying the wax give it a firm rub to produce extra warmth and better adhesion

  • Veet; seems to work well; just make sure you test before using all over; try it out on a small area to ensure there is no reaction. Good Luck!

  • I have friends who have used them and they work just as well as a salon

  • Ooh I don’t think I would be brave enough to do it myself at home! Good luck if you attempt it!

  • Not something I would want to do myself at home, ouch!

  • Only with Veet cream not hot wax, just spot test first!

  • there are some good comments here

  • i would love a xxx 2 . 2 scared

  • I would suggest to look for dome video on YouTube . You will get better idea.

  • How did you go? :)

  • I hope you’ve had success

  • Veet is very good and easy too use

  • The Veet sensitive cream is good, just remember to spot test it first before going all in and keep a clock handy..timing is everything with those creams!
