Bikini Waxing - OUCH!!
Beauty has its own costs - pain should not be one of them. And bikini wax is such a pain in you know where! So if you are gritting your teeth just by thinking about it, relax! Bare Ease Numbing Cream developed by an anesthesiologist Edna Ma. This product numbs the 'area' and takes the edge away from the pain. It has lidocaine which is a safe topical anesthetic commonly used in tattoo parlors and in doctors' office for numbing the sensation during laser procedures.
The product needs to be on your skin for about 30 minutes to be effective and for that the plastic isolation underwear comes in handy! You can apply the cream 30 minutes prior to your waxing appointment, slip on the disposable underwear and be on your way! The kit costs $24.99.
Be warned though - every person has a different threshold of pain and while for some this is an 'ouch-less' procedure, for others its just a help to curb the screams into gasps!!!
