No not an LEO bashing thread.

Its what my daughter and I call it when we have hot waxed poured onto our faces in an effort to stay beautiful!

Typically Whitney will do me and I'll do her but this past time I went to the salon to have it done. I go to the salon about every other month and Whitney keeps me in good shape in between.

This time I must have had a weird reaction to the wax or something because under my eyes and above my lip I have a million blisters and a ton of bruising. Let me tell you, they hurt too! They hurt more like bruises than burns though. Craziest dern thing ever.

Anyone else ever have this happen? Patty

Wow Patti...Did they put on any kind of cream afterwards? Maybe that's what you're having a re-action to.

Sounds like a sub-dermal abrasion with bruising.

Ice IMMEDIATELY after procedure and see if that helps.


The title got my mind...

Blah, with a good attorney I could be vacationing in Aruba right? No cold cream, nothing different that I can tell. Weirdest dern thing ever though. Patty

I've had a reaction to waxing the first few times I did it (blisters, really red & sensitive to touch), but the last few times I've gone its been a breeze. Maybe the type of wax they are using doesn't agree with your skin? Do you have any of these problems when you do it at home?

I've never had a problem but I've never waxed them at home. My daughter just plucks them with tweezers.

Maybe your skin just isn't used to it yet? I have very sensitive skin, and it took me 6 or 7 times of going before I was okay. I still get red, but no blisters......

On another note, our men should really start appreciating all the painful work & maintenance we ladies go through to look pretty & to make them happy!
Link Posted: 9/12/2005 11:08:20 AM EDT
boy no kidding however regardless of men I'm not going to run around with a 'mushmatch' [as my little guy calls it].

I had it down twice before with no problem this time problems. Its weird. I'll have to check to see if she used a new wax or something. She didn't put anything on me before or after? Not too happy to say the least. The first two times she got me crooked and now this! The daughter straightened them out. It gives her way too much pleasure though to see me suffer to have her do them exclusively!

I couldn't resist. It's my favorite thread of all time. A true ARFCOM classic.


Well, I'd have to say that I'm proud to go down in ARFcom history, even if it is for things you should never try at home.

The defuzzing the face isn't the hardest part. Its quick and over with in about 30 seconds as long as you don't bruise and blister. I just actually started having mine done. I went 40 years with out having my eyebrows done but I kind of like the neat shaped look now.

As it seems natural for us to get fuzzier with age, just want to know your honest reaction to a woman with quite a bit of fuzz (not gnarly and dark, just lots of fuzz) on her face.

I have a pretty high tolerance for pain.



What does the peroxide do? I have a high pain thresh hold too. I whine though if it takes two weeks for the bruising and blistering to subside from the initial waxing. Patty

Ever hear the term "bottle blond"?



ah...no I'm a natural! Actually I do know that peroxide bleaches but I would think it would help for the eyebrows. Mine anyway are so dark and thick. Patty

I always understood it as the more you pluck, the finer the hair comes in later. Proves true with my eyebrows.

My experience is the same too but I'm sure YMMV. I actually just started doing my eyebrows. I didn't need to have my lip done until after I had kids. I had it electroically done after Whitney was born and didn't have any "flare" ups until after the birth of my last baby. Oh the joys of mother hood.

Anyway, no matter what, I'm keeping my lip free and clean. I might let the eyebrows grow back to bushy - they run in my family!
