beauty guinea pig part 1: in which i realize i'm a masochist
i'm a bit of a junkie. a beauty junkie. and both in bed and in life, i always say i'll try anything once. this series details the spa/betterment/prettying procedures i've had the good fortune to experience. and the ones i'd rather cut myself than do again.
well, it's spa week here in new york and i did it again. i know, i know, i'm a glutton for punishment. but this time it was only $50. and each time you do it, you lose 15-20% of your hair for good. so if i manage to get this done 6 times i'll never need to shave my armpits again. each session usually costs $200 so if i keep waiting for these special sale weeks and go twice a year, it's not such a bad trade off, right?
wrong. i did my armpits on saturday and it hurt even more than i remembered. also, she did a couple swipe-overs so she got even more hair than the last time, but that means more pain than last time. imagine someone taking a rubberband and snapping it, as hard as possible, at your armpit. and imagine that person doing it about 15 times. my tolerance for pain is high and, again, i nearly told her to stop halfway through. i was tearing up, it seemed to last forever and i was sore as hell afterwards.
i'm a bit traumatized over the whole thing, but what's 15 minutes of excruciating pain for 50 hairless armpit years? it seems worth it, right? right?
doing my bikini area on wednesday, but they gave the option for a brazilian laser. which i, of course, signed up for. it's more bang for your buck...but also more pain for the ladyparts. this could get ugly...
