Hair removal is one of the more tedious aspects of self-care because there are so many things we have to think about before committing to the right method for us. Does it hurt? How much does it cost? Will my hair grow back fast? The list would go on and on if we let it.
Fortunately for us, we have options! From laser hair removal to Brazilian waxes, the technology behind removing body hair is something to behold these days. However, it does have one drawback—it can get pretty pricey and time-consuming to maintain.
No worries, girl! Don’t forget that we have at-home options, too. Here are 3 DIY hair removal products so good, it looks like a professional did it!
The whole concept of at-home waxing can be intimidating. You mean you want us, the non-professionals, to slather hot wax on a stick, rub it on our legs, and yank off all that hair all by ourselves? No ma’am! That’s why Flamingo came through with $10 body wax kit that nearly eliminates all of these issues.
It comes with 28 easy-to-use soft gel wax strips that can be gently pressed on, gently pulled off, and cleaned up with one of their plush post-wax cloths that wipes away any left over wax. See what I mean? No mess and low stress, just how we like it.
Sugar waxing is super neat because it’s like an entire wax kit in a single jar. You can really just powder your body to remove any excess oil or moisture, apply the wax to the area you wish, and then pull it off. Boom, you’re pretty much done—no sticks, strips, or insane levels of screaming required.
This Firm Sugar Wax from Blue Milk & Honey is one of the best at-home hair removal methods in the game because it’s softer than hard wax but not as soft as other DIY waxes, so it’s incredibly flexible. Not only can it remove super coarse hair, it’ll also leave your legs silky and smooth, even in harsh weather.
A shaving cream made with shea butter? Sign us up immediately! But uh, not just any one—it has to be the EOS Shea Butter Shave Cream. It’s nourishing, softening, and keeps your legs smooth and rub-worthy for up to 24 whole hours after your last shave.
And I know what you’re thinking, “Isn’t shea butter to thick? Won’t it get stuck in the razor and make it dull?” Typically, sure. But this formula in particular is also made with water, aloe juice, and sunflower oil, making this shave cream a more manageable kind of luscious.
