Warning: girly post

Yes, if you're one of the people offended (or anything to that effect) by the previous entry, I'm afraid I'm going to be posting more. If you don't wanna know certain stuff about girls then you may skip to leaving a comment saying... you skipped to leaving a comment? Hehehe!

Anyway, I've always wanted to make these 'girly' posts. I am one of the un-girliest girls you'd ever meet. Therefore, I am hopelessly clueless about stuff that people with double-X chromosomes are naturally gifted with. Usually. I know squat about makeup, I burn everything I've ever tried to cook, and I'm so lousy at haggling sidewalk vendors rob me blind.

Soooo I rely on the internet when I need to know about girly stuff. And the information that was hardest to come by usually pops up in another girl's blog! So I thought I'd give something back to the world (or karma, depends on how you see it) and try to share whatever knowledge I pick up from personal experience thru blogging.

Okay boys, you may go leave a comment now and surf FHM.com or whatever. Because now I'm gonna talk about... waxing.

Okay girls, now that the boys are out of the way, let me tell you that finding the best waxers has been a long and literally painful journey. I started with lotions like Sally Hansen for my legs. I rubbed too hard with the washcloth though which resulted to scarping myself (so I don't know my own strength, okay?).

Shaving is quicker and much less hassle, but the stubbles are just *aaaaaaaaaaaargh!* that in the end I just left my legs alone eversince. Apparently guys don't mind at all. I found that out when I wore miniskirts that I still get the same results. I stopped traffic ;)

Anyway as for waxing, I'd say the best is by Watercolors Salon (I'd thank the girl who blogged about this, but I can't remember her at the moment >_<). Most expensive, but least painful. So for anyone who's interested: Watercolors Salon, 25 Zamboanga St., West Ave., QC 3734232/4101219. They also gave me a nice footspa because they had a promo so I tried it out. Pamper galore. My only complaint is that they don't have any other branches, let alone in Makati.

Runner-up would be Piandre, which is located in Greenbelt 1, Ayala Center. Arashi is the one who told me about this. And I go here when I don't have the time to go so far as Quezon City. They're slightly cheaper, but slightly more painful, and slightly less thorough. I mean, they tend to miss some. And you might get skin irritations.

Another one I tried is this salon in Greenhills. I can't recall the name of the salon, but they have only one waxer, so if you go when that one and only waxer happens to have her dayoff, then tough luck. Cheaper, less painful, but not so thorough. I wouldn't recommend them for a Brazilian, but they're good enough for other waxing services.

The one place I'd never ever go back to is Let's Face It. I don't know if it's because I had the misfortune of being practiced on by a n00b but daaaaang that was painful! I only decided to give them a try because it's the cheapest I've heard of, but let's just say I found out the hard way that the priciness apparently is inversely proportionate to the painlessness. 'Nuff said.

Ok. That ends my (hopefully) educational/helpful girly post. If you have any questions regarding girly stuff or otherwise I'll try my best to answer them :D

I enjoyed it too! I shave everyday because of the darn stubbles and I'm interested in waxing too. If only QC is not that far away then I might visit that salon you recommended. Will check out the one in Makati. :)

makati's pretty ok too :) just make sure to let them know how thorough you want them to be.
