Pain Free Waxing Solutions

Pain Free Waxing Solutions

We all know what our skin goals are. Flawless, soft and perfectly smooth. Whether you’re going on holiday or just want to look good in your daily routine then you’ll know the importance of hair removal to your routine.

There’s a load of ways to achieve this perfect, hair free skin of course. The majority of people rely on their razors to trim down the hairs on their legs and elsewhere. While a lot of us are using to shaving there’s a fair few downsides. Shaving can be irritating to the skin and lead to cuts and scratches which will mark your legs. It’s also fairly time consuming and definitely not the most efficient method of hair removal.

Instead a lot of people are turning to waxing for the best hair removal. Waxing used to be something only done by professionals in salons, but these days there are countless products which can be used in your own home.

At home waxing can be a daunting thought for some. Some people are put off by the challenge and the thought that it may mean mess all over the home. Home waxing kits are actually more streamlined than ever with kits that remove all the hassle while giving the best results.

The main perceived downside of waxing is the pain it can cause. We all know that waxing is supposed to be a painful experience, but actually it doesn’t have to be. There are now ways to wax pain free as long as you get the right products for your skin. Keep reading to find out more.

Benefits of Waxing

Waxing at homeThere are a number of reasons that waxing is becoming more popular year on year. The specially formulated products keep getting better and better leading to improved results. There are a few other hair removal treatments available so let’s take a look at exactly why waxing is so good:

● Long Lasting Hair Removal
Waxing works differently from most other treatments because it removes your hairs from the root, not just trimming the end. By removing the hairs completely It means the hair takes much longer to grow back, meaning less frequent hair removal needed.

● Time Saver
Waxing isn’t just more effective it’s also more efficient. Home wax kits are now designed to be quick and easy meaning you can wax on and wax off without any trouble.

● No Marks
Even the most careful shave can result in a few cuts but with waxing there isn’t any risk to your skin. The wax targets the hairs and the worst that can happen is a bit of temporary redness on the outside.

Waxing allows you the confidence of great looking smooth skin. Always make sure you’re using reputable products from companies you can trust so you won’t hurt your skin. Remember waxing doesn’t have to hurt and it’s worth taking a little time to look for the best products.

Memories With My Mum

One of my youngest memories of my mum was back when we were at our old house, and my mum was getting ready to go out and I was sitting on her bed while she sat at her dressing table putting on her makeup, I must have been about 4 or 5. My mum didn’t wear makeup much, and I just remember thinking she looked so glamourous. She had this blue brush that she used to apply her blusher, and I remember sneaking into her bedroom to rub it on my face every now and then because it was so soft. I then remember as she finished doing her makeup and put on her heels, she looked so different from the usual mumsy way she looked, and I always loved going to look at her shoes, she had some really lovely pairs.

I think this must have been the first time I learnt about beauty and fashion from my mum, and I remember as I got older watching her get ready for parties and her talking to me about the makeup she was using, what dress she was going to wear, or how she was going to do her hair. As it was Mother’s Day last week, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my memories I have with my mum, and how over the years she’s taught me about fashion.


Growing up I had some very urm, questionable fashion choices. I remember when I was 11 I was obsessed with these combat trousers with bits of string hanging off them, and I thought I was seriously cool. Then when I was 12 I went through my goth phase, refusing to wear any colour other than black, and lots of studded belts and chains. I even found out that my mum had her own goth phase and still had some of her old studded belts, and even a belt made from bullets which I thought was pretty cool, and I begged her to let me have them but she never let me. For my 13th birthday I had a big disco at the local village hall, and still very much in my goth phase, I managed to convince my mum these black pointy boots with lots of studs and zips on for my party, and I was pretty horrified that my mum bought herself the same pair in red too. 



Now that I’m much older, and my fashion choices have improved quite significantly, I’ve found my style is very similar to my mums. And in fact in the past I’ve even pinched some of her clothes, and we’ve often given each other clothes when one of us doesn’t want it anymore. It’s not that my fashion style is mumsy, it’s just that my mum is a pretty fashionable lady. She has some amazing clothes, and some of her party dresses are simply amazing. My mums fashionable opinion means quite a lot to me, and whenever I’ve had to buy a dress for an occasion, I always take my mum shopping with me. When we went shopping for my graduation dress she helped me pick out loads of dresses to chose from, and we took over the changing rooms until we found the one. 


Although me and mum are similar dress sizes and I can get away with pinching her clothes, it’s annoying that we’re not the same shoe size for me to also pinch some of her shoes. In fact next to my mums shoes, mine look like boats, she just has such tiny feet. My mum has some of the cutest heels I’ve ever seen, and I remember when I was around 11 trying to stuff my big feet into this amazing pair of heels she had, and failing miserably. Despite being different sizes, we still have very similar tastes in shoes. Recently Wynsors Online offered us both a pair of shoes in any style we liked, and without talking to each other about what shoes we wanted, we both picked a very similar pair! Although we both like different colours and patterns at times, it’s nice to see that mine and my mum’s fashion styles are pretty much the same, she’s clearly had a big influence on me!


I hope that as I continue to grow up my mum’s still there and influencing me and my fashion choices, especially as I love a good excuse to go on a shopping trip. Do you find that you have a similar style to your mum? Or do you have any style related memories of your mum’s fashion choices from when you were younger?

Coldpress Veg Juices

I’m currently on bit of a health kick where I’m just generally trying to eat a lot healthier, drink more water, and be a little more active. I’ve been doing this for a little while now and I’m really starting to feel better, I’ve even managed to control my diet coke habit, and I haven’t had one for nearly a week now.
While I’ve been trying to kick my fizzy drink habit I got a bit bored drinking only water and green tea, so I went for bit of a hunt in my local Tesco to find something good for me to drink on my lunch break. Next to the fruit juices I spotted these Coldpress veg juices and was a little intrigued. I’ve never had a veg juice before but I’ve heard that it’s really good for you, but the idea of drinking vegetables to me has always put me off. But I thought I’d give it a go, and picked up the ‘Mean Greens’ flavour to have a try.
Although the colour wasn’t the most appealing, I was actually surprised at how nice the juice was, especially as it was made up of celery, cucumber, lemon, lettuce, spinach, pears, and pineapple. I think I was expecting it be really bitter, but because of the lemon, pears and pineapple it actually has bit of a sweet taste to it. After drinking my veg juice I felt really good, like I was super healthy, and had loads of energy. I loved my juice so much that I actually went back to Tesco to try out the other two flavours, ‘Pumpkin Power’ and ‘Juicy Roots’. 



Coldpress’s veg juices are made with a cold press (clue’s in the name!), helping to preserve the drinks without heat, meaning it keeps it’s original taste. They’re also full of goodness like vitamin C and polyphenols, making them super good for you. I think out of the three flavours my favourite is Pumpkin Power, as it tastes a little sweeter than the other two, but I really enjoy all of these. I’ve certainly been converted to veg juices, I’m even considering buying a juicer so I can make my own veg juices. 


What do you think of veg juices? Have you had one before?
