    Ugh hate shaving since it takes me forever and have to shave every like 2 weeks so I’ve heard about laser hair removal but wasn’t sure if it was safe. I would rather shave than do laser since it’s too costly and leads to some serious side effects. Naturally removing the hair with a razor is just safe and would recommend that for every girl 🙂

      What are the side effects of laser? I haven’t heard about this so I’m curious. There is a big difference in laser machines, so depending where you go, results can greatly differ. Shaving does take forever though right! x

        It looks like the side effects are skin infections, redness, irritation, burns, crusting, etc. But I think the chances are pretty low of getting the side effects but I personally wouldn’t take the risk.

          For me it depends on what percent. But I understand where you are coming from. I guess it’s worthwhile testing a small area first.

    I’ve definitely considered laser hair removal! The thought of being able to wake up and not have to shave is amazing! I would do my arm pits, bikini area and legs! That would be the dream. I just know that it would be a bit expensive. Because the cost depends on many factors. Like thickness of hair and the area that you want to be done. I think I’m definitely going to do it in the next few years, because razor bumps suck, and why not! I would love not to waste money and time on something that grows back in the next day or so. Great post laura xxx

      I HATE razor bumps! I’d get the same areas done but I guess it does all add up. I was surprised to learn that it’s not permenant, so in the future there may be a chance of some maintenance appointments. But it still seems worth it lol. Thank you girl xxx

    Finally a good thing about being so pale and have thin hair, I never need to think about these things =) I can go a year or two without shaving my legs and no one will know because they can’t see what’s there!

    • LauraJ says

      You’re very lucky!! I can go like a couple of days at most. I remember wearing clear tights at 11 with my hairy legs showing, and this girl went round telling everyone and so I immediately shaved the next day.

        That sucks… I remember girls in school did that to eachother.
        I can look a bit funny in the sun though, my leghairs are almost transluscent, so they sometimes reflect the sunlight and I look a bit like a christmas tree XD I don’t care, I think I see it more than others =)

        • LauraJ says

          I can’t ever picture you looking like a Christmas tree! We often fixate on things that others don’t notice, so I think you see it more than others as well 🙂

    If a woman can afford it, I think she should consider lasar hair reoval. I wouldn’t do the arm, but there is nothing more beautiful or wonderful to touch than silky legs. This appears to be a much better option than weekly shaving.

    • LauraJ says

      Yes weekly shaving is so annoying! I think because my arm hairs are really faint, it doesn’t bother me. For some women it’s a big thing. I guess the cost is expensive, but as a one off payment it’s not that bad. Especially when adding up how much shavers cost. Eventually it almost evens out.
      Thank you for commenting and Happy Monday! 🙂

      I’ve kind of been the same. I’m not sure if it’s the biggest concern I have. Like I would prefer more chemical peels for my acne scars first or something, but I can see myself eventually getting laser hair removal done. Because it’s a one off payment to years of freedom from shaving etc. It would be amazing in the summer! Thank you for commenting 🙂

I would love to read your thoughts!
