My wife and I are wanting to try waxing without the high cost of going to a solon.

Hi, and welcome to the board. I'm sorry I don't have any advice to give you on this, but I just wanted to say welcome. Perhaps someone else can help you out.

do the Sally Hansen Brazilian Wax Kits work well? I would like to try one but am always afraid to, for fear they will not work very well.

Go to Sally's Beauty in your area, get a Gigi warmer and brazilian wax, you will want to get some cleaner and oil. That is what we have been using for the last couple years. DW loves me brazilian and I love her brazilian. Last Saturday was our last waxing. Still smooth and will be for several days more. What fun to wax each other. Used to use the microwave brazilian wax but having a wax warmer is much better and does save money.

Thanks for your advice. I was wondering when you'd show up in this thread. ;-)

Ya, I like the Brazilian and would never go back to shaving again. DW said she expects me to stay waxed until I leave this world. Refresh my memory, do you keep yourself waxed?

Nope, not completely, my skin won't take it, and believe me I've tried. I have to shave or use creams, but I don't like them very much. Oddly enough, I do wax my arms all the time, because it works fine there, and I love the feel of doing it when the wax is pulled off. It doesn't hurt, but it is such a strong tingling sensation, it's fabulous. If the rest reacted like that, I would, and after this amount of time hardly any hair grows back there; I've never had hair in my armpits, thank goodness, so that isn't a problem. Do you do your arms as well? It amazes me to see women who have waxed, smooth legs, and hairy arms. All right, it amazes me and kind of shocks me, lol.

For me, Brazilian, then my chest and back. I do get the inter thigh waxed to. Oh, you should give a Brazilian a try again. Make sure you use the Hard wax that you just pull off, not the soft wax that you have to use the cloth strips with. Then you can also get a spray that will numb you so you don't feel anything when the wax is pulled off. Some things that help is for the person who is removing the wax to right after the wax is pulled off to lay their hand on that area and give a firm press for a min. Or you can use a wash cloth soaked in a bowl of ice water
