Brazilian Wax...First Time Tomorrow!!! Yikes

Recommended Posts

Hello! I got my first one today too. There were a couple of strips that were painful, but mostly they were OK. I just hope my occasional "yelp" didn't disturb the person trying to have a relaxing massage in the next room! My waxer gave me an antibacterial lotion called "finipil" that claims to reduce new growth and ingrown hair. She was very professional and I didn't feel uncomfortable at all with her doing the deed. Don't be shy ladies, if its something you wanted to try! They do this all day long, so nothing new to their eyes. But be prepared that for the first 24 hours or so your skin might be a little irritated, swollen and bumpy in some places.

It is well worth it. I always take Tylenol about an hour before I go which definitely helps. I found a spa that does a great job, minimal pain and the waxer has such a great personality it seems like you are visiting with a friend.

Has anyone who is pregnant been waxed? I want to do it, but am scared because that area is extra sensitive during pregnancy. Any suggestions?

How long does a typical Brazilian Wax last? I am thinking about getting one and am trying to decide if I should get one now and then get another one right before we leave or just wait.

I agree-- about a week and you start to see new growth. As for the pregnant question, my sister is due to to have twins in April and still gets waxes. My cousin also told me she was getting regular waxing done all the way until she had her baby! You could always go and if it gets too painful or uncomfortable and ask them to stop.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
