I tried it before and ouuuuchhhh! I have really sensitive skin and even though I followed the time and applied the aftercream it still burned the crap out of my skin.

Use with caution especially since pregnant skin can be sensitive skin for some.

I used to use Veet on my legs all of the time and I loved it! It makes them super smooth! It's hard to use on the bikini line because you have to let it sit for 3 minutes, so you have to do one side and then the other. I am just not that patient to sit in the same spot for that long.

Do not try a home waxing kit. Been there, done that. Ouch! And not effective!

I've use it on my legs and underarms. Didn't work so well on my underarms but did on my legs. I am terrified to try it on my lady bits!

I was just researching this very topic this morning . From what I've gathered.. if you are going to go this route, be sure to get the nair for bikini area as it's better for sensitive skin. That said I'm still not sure if I'm gonna do it.
LMK if you try it!

Yea my dr said it was fine after my razor fiasco lol. I told her i was afraid she said its fine. If i were you i would do a test area to see how sensitive you are, etc, if you are at all.

Awww thanks! I've never used it....just never thought it would work. But at this point, I gotta do something about that mess down there! LOL! Even if I have to get waxed, just REALLY don't want to!

I use a product called *Made for the black mans beard* by Magic (you can find it at Target, walgreens etc)....you just slather it on....and then I use a wash cloth and just wipe it off in the shower. Works great with no irritation or funny smells.....

A friend of mine recommend it to me since pubic hair tends to be courser (how ever that is spelled).

I used to use Nair down there, and actually forgot about it until this post, and I will probably go get it at the next store run. I used the regular kind and I loved it. My skin is so sensitive so every time I shaved I would get horrible razor burn no matter how good my razor was. It does burn a little bit but that's just how it works. Just make sure you don't leave it on too long! I would leave it on for under the recommended amount of time just to test it, and go longer next time if needed.

I can't use this stuff because no matter how long I leave it on it just irritates the hell out of my skin, and I get red bumps every place it touches. So i would beware of that happening, especially on an already sensitive area.
And I also know it used to say it was not intended for your girly parts, so i woulf start off with the sensitive skin kind.

I have very sensitive skin too. I used to get waxed (the whole shebang, yeah ouch) and then after a while I was over spending 30 bucks to do that. I can't shave either really, and right now I can't see my whoohaa which is prob a good thing, haha.
I will give you all a visual. I always used Nair and I would lay on a towel or stand with my legs spread and I would do all but the middle (like never inside or near that. I had a landing strip if you will). It worked great for me! Now that was when I was first married and I gave a crap. I would do in the shower after with a washcloth and wipe it off. It wasn't perfect.
