I'm all for saving money and while I don't really like to inflict pain upon myself, I did it. All for you my lovely readers.
I prepared my legs just like I have been talking about all week and was excited (and a wee bit nervous) for my wax appointment today. It went well, pretty much like every other wax I've had. It hurt a lot. I made a lot of noises. We laughed. It was a good time.
I still have a bit of left over hair. Although, they are small, bitty white hairs that the wax won't pick up. After 24-48 hours I will be able to shave them away.
Here's the recipe:
2 cups sugar
¼ cup water
¼ cup lemon juice
Heat over low heat until sugar is thick and brown.
It took forever for it to turn thick and brown. So long that I thought I was doing something wrong. I reread the instructions 17 times. Honestly it probably took almost 30 minutes for it to look like the picture above. And I had even cut the recipe in half, and then in half again (I had no idea I was almost out of sugar!)
Now. Let me list the reason for you to never try this. ever.
- I pretty much ruined a saucepan
- I burnt the bajesus out of three of my fingers
- and my leg
- The wax didn't come off of my leg with the cloth strip, I instead had to pull it off...slowly and painfully.
- It didn't take much hair off.
Are five enough? Or should I keep going?
Needless to say...I'll be back in the wax room again tomorrow finishing what the nice wax lady started.
