I recently used clippers to rid most of the mass (very hairy legs) and due to protest from the Minister for War & Finance (fiance) have not gone through with the waxing.

What are the creams like? I have had a wax done before (for charity event) but not shaved due to the fear of it coming back thicker! Anyone used the hair removal creams? Any issues with it?

the cream is good, some people say they dont like tehm cause they smell but they give you a lot better feel than shaving almost feels like you have waxed them with the smoothness, lol

hair growing back thicker after shaving is an old wives tale

creams are ok - smell a bit and may cause irritation if your skin is especially sensetive. almost as good as waxing but not as long lasting

Isnt cream basically the same as shaving as it only gets rid of the hair and not the roots? Hence it supposedly comes back thicker?

I have read somewhere that the mith with shaving and growing back thicker is nonsense, but so many people still say waxing is better. not sure :-D

only benifit to waxing vs cream, is the the waxing lasts longer, shaving gives me ingrowns and waxing is a bitch :lol: or maybe its just me :oops:

you guys just arent using your internet connection properly if you need me to upload photos to entertain you :)

anyway it would only be fair if you all returned the favour :) haha

be careful if you decide to use that hair removal cream if you have sensitive skin, my partner who has eczema got a pretty bad reaction to it.
great fun in the saddle :)

I personally am not a fan of hair, I use all sorts of excuses to justify waxing my legs i.e.

Makes me swim faster (not for aerodynamics or drag but because I can feel the water, hmm, not sure that one flies)..

It prevents infection if I ever fall off (obviously if I fall of and get grazed legs and they are hairy, I will get gangreen and they will fall off :shock: )

The most feasible one but the one which happens the least unfortunately is that have smooth legs helps with the post training massages... Have you ever tried to moisturise hairy legs??

But the main reason is, if you have great fit legs, you want to show them off in your white lycra (always add a little oil to the legs as well, gives them a nice glisten when the sun comes up)..

Stacey, looking forward to seeing the shots, naturally one has to share.. That is why we are on the forum.. (hhmmm, which forum was this again? We are talking waxing tushes (eyes are watering at the thought, I think clippering is the way forward in that zone)..)
