RIGHT THEN FRIENDS, LET'S TALK HAIR REMOVAL. 

First of all, let's just say that when it comes to your underarm hair, you do you hunnay. Shave it, braid it, cover it in glitter - we don't really care. BUT if you are all for removing the hair that grows under ya pits, then epilating could just change your life.

If you regularly shave your underarms then you might be familiar with a few of these things: 

  • the itchy rash you get when it starts to grow back
  • the dark 'shadow' that forms if your shave just isn't q. close enough 
  • and the "OH GOD I FORGOT" feeling when you rush out of the house too quick in the morning

Yup? Well, we basically think shaving your armpits is a right bloody nuisance and have been trying all kinds of alternative options in the quest for super smooth pits. 

Enter: epilation. Those scary looking spinny wheel of doom type devices that pretty much PLUCK your hair right outta your follicle in one quick swoop. Yep, we won't lie to you - the first few times you do it, it absolutely KILLS... BUT:

After 2 or 3 really quite painful sessions (done once a week) the hair just pretty much stopped growing back. We could easily go for 10 days to 2 weeks without even THINKING about our underarms, and then when the hair did eventually grow back, it was SO MUCH finer and didn't hurt even half as much.

It's easier than waxing, and you can do it in the privacy of your own bathroom. Epilating our armpits has pretty much revolutionised our lives - if you get through the painful 2 or 3 tries then you will NOT regret it. 

Or y'know, stick with your glitter pits. You do you, babes.
