A Big Mistake - Hair removal

Saturday, August 17, 2013

We're all friends here right?..... Well a few months ago I made a big mistake!!

I have blonde hair and I find my body hair glistens in the sunlight quite well and I was complaining to my friends at work about my twinkling little moustache.

One of the girls recommended hair removal cream and said she uses it all the time and it comes straight off.

Brilliant I thought, no pain from having to wax or pluck. I made it my mission that lunch time to get some Veet and thought I better go for the sensitive.

That night while my boyfriend was watching TV, not wanting him to know what I was doing I ran upstairs Veet in hand pretending I was going for a shower. He will never know I thought....

I slathered a thick layer across the top of my lip and sat down to start the 8 minute wait. Ouch... Within a minute my upper lip was on fire and I was in a lot of pain, I quickly washed off the cream and couldn't believe what I had done. I now had an angry red mark and on closer inspection realised it had removed half the hairs but left a perfect line of them just under my nose, so i looked worse than when i started.

If that wasn't bad enough the redness wouldnt go down and the burning continued so i lathered myself in Sudacream thinking Simon (partner) would still be down stairs for a while...... Wrong!!!!

He came upstairs to find me like this.....

(looking very sorry for myself)

He will never let me live this down and has kept this picture on his phone. I will never try this again and I had to go into work with a scabby lip for 3 days and made a few peoples days. 

Has anyone else tried this or had a beauty disaster????

  2. Oh dear, I've never heard of anything like this! Was it just the leg hair removal or Veets new face one?

  3. Same with mine, but I think I notice it more as I know its there. Have considered doing something to get rid of it, but know it will come back worse, and then I'll always be removing it. New follower :)

  4. Oh no! That's horrible. So sorry about your experience. I would never try and remove hair by myself. I would probably end up doing the same thing! xo

    Would you like to do a button swap?

  10. Oh my gosh! I bet that was painful! I once used a face mask that burnt my skin so much I had to wash it off within seconds and my face swelled up like a balloon and was BRIGHT RED! All in front of my boyfriend who thought it was hilarious! Boys are mean about beauty disasters!

  13. omg!! Sorry you went through all that pain. I used that product before and didn't know I had some on the tip of my finger. Scratched an itch on my eyebrow and removed a good chuck off my left one!
    Well hope to hear more from you and would love to have us follow each other :)

  15. The EXACT same thing happened to me - although I used a sensitive removal cream purely for upper lips and it burnt so so bad. Bad enough that I had scabs all over the top of my life for a good 3-4 weeks as the burns were so bad. NEVER AGAIN!!!

    I feel your pain!!!! xx
