Mustache Woes Update

I know you have all been losing sleep wondering whatever happend on my waxing adventure. Read on...

I have this thing with following the directions that come with at home beauty treatments. I'll read them, happen upon something that makes no sense to me, then do it my own way. Smart, I know. In the past this has led to me to many a breakout and once, striped hair. But I digress...

According to Veet (why they rhymed the name of something I am going to put on my face with "feet" I will never know) I am supposed to vigorously rub the wax strip in my hand until it gets warm. So I rubbed away for a good minute and it felt the exact same to me. I said screw it and went ahead anyway (see what I mean?)

The other problem I had was getting the wax on my upper lip hair but not on my actual lip. I don't even want to contemplate that kind of pain. So in other words, I couldn't get it warm and I couldn't get it on my face the right way. Lovely.

When all was said and done, there were quite a few stray hairs that I had to pluck which actually hurt more than the waxing itself. And yes, it hurts. Don't let stupid bitches lie to you about that! I am going to keep waxing because a) it looks better b) it didn't make my moody skin break out and c) it's still relatively cheap.

And I give Veet Wax Strips 3 out of 5 stars. Low score for a stupid name.
