  • I shave my arms. I don't have a lot of hair on my arms, but the hair I have is VERY dark.

  • I shaved my arms once in third grade and it freaked me out, so I never did it again. I was having a conversation with my SIL a couple weeks ago. She's pretty hairy, so she uses Nair on her arms and they always look and feel great. I decided to give it a try. I had some Veet on hand and I loved the results. Now I just feel like I've opened a can of worms because I have to do it every few days or once a week, lol. I have tiny bumps from ingrown hairs now too. I think that might be because I let more time lapse in between Veet-ings (lol).

  • Don't shave. It leaves stubble. Instead, get your arms waxed or use an epilator.

  • I use an epilator. I tried Veet, and I had a reaction to it. It blistered up my arms in just two or three minutes.

  • I use to shave in high school. It didn't come back thicker or darker, like most people will say. I have dark hair.. And now my arm hair is light. I don't shave them any more now, just because I don't have time..barely keep my legs shaved lol!

  • Yikes! Thankfully I haven't had a reaction to it. Ugh, I can't imagine. Where do I go about getting an epilator?

  • Oh, cool, thanks! Silly question maybe, but I'm not familiar with epilators. Are they similar to a man's electric shaver?
