Each and every one of us leads an eternal fight with body hair. Luckily these days there are lots of means to deal with unwanted hair. One of the most common ones is shaving, of course. Yet, since shaving does not suggest a long-lasting effect, we tend to search for something more permanent.

As you may have guessed, we have in mind waxing. Yet, waxing comes with something as nasty as rash and irritation.
