Happily in the middle of facial electrolysis, and currently indulging in full body waxing. The full body wax sets me back £150 a visit because I habitually opt for "everything below the neck" removed, and with this being a bi-monthly cost, it's a real boxing match where my personal finances are concerned, looking to save money, but adamant about not shaving. Shaved my bikini line for several years, and it's first waxing was... Distressing. A pain that has reduced considerably since I begun leaving it alone and letting my wax tech handle it. Which leaves me with 3 options: a) epilators (great value long term, heard nothing but good things about the Braun Epil 7 series. Hurts more than wax apparently) b) Fork out for laser for things below the neckline (extremely expensive in the long run, but professional results should be trustworthy and effective)* c) do IPL at home (very expensive initial cost to get the unit, big question mark about ease of use/maintenance) Can anyone vouch for ease of use and the effectiveness of home-based IPL hair removal solutions? I've built a fairly robust pain tolerance to hair removal, but I have reservations putting an epilator anywhere near my bikini line or other intimates, if they hurt more than wax. So I'd still have wax salon visits, but I would pay £100 less per visit than I do now. *My nearest laser/IPL salon quotes 6-9 sessions to get a clear area, but sessions are charged individually, and the chest area weighs in at £145, naval charged separately at £45 and £240 for full legs
